Rescue Me! How could I forget that? The best season (IMO) was the one where Tommy kept seeing Jesus everywhere. And Jesus called Tommy a loser.

love Walking Dead, don't miss any episodes of Fringe, got lost in Lost, watched X-Files at work. no, really, i did. for two seasons i was working at DIA (denver international airport) and my work tour coincided with the broadcast. it was amazing to hear the theme music coming from every television set in the main terminal. the place just sort of came to a stop while X-Files was on.

There is a lot that I would change/improve when it comes to The Walking Dead but I still watch it.

Other shows I would recommend are: Breaking Bad, Dexter, Spartacus, Elementary, True Blood, Falling Skies, Game of Thrones, The Killing, 666 Park Avenue (which is cancelled too soon imo) etc.

I'm a Game Of Thrones fan too and I recently have developed a bit of a Greys Anatomy obsession. I never watched it before but I'm catching up with it on Netflix and I am addicted.

The night shift nurses I work with all watch the same shows. It is great because when one season of a series ends, there is another season starting of another one we like. We watch Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Trueblood, and Sons of Anarchy. I watch The Walking Dead and I have got my husband watching it now. They are all great series.

We're watching 'X-Files' now (rewatching for me, first time through for the SO).

But we go mainly for things in syndication or no longer airing; no cable for us, but, rather, Netflix and similar ... so there's no problem of being 'sidetracked' when something comes on. As to the original question, I'd throw 'Buffy' out there for myself, but the SO won't watch it.

Game of Thrones and American Horror Story. I actually tivo'd the whole Walking Dead marathon, but haven't watched any of it yet. I hope I like it, or that's gonna be a lot of deleting lol.

I was a huge fan of X-Files and Millenium. In fact I was out in Vancouver a few years ago doing a job and got to see where they filmed a lot of the episodes.. great stuff.

Millenium was great - from the same creator as X-Files. Darker, but really good.

These days I'm loving every episode of Californication!

I know that it isn't a series, but rather a historical show, but the Roma Downey mini series titled THE BIBLE is incredible. I strongly recommend it.

As to series, my favorites have been Lost, X-files, Southland and joining those ranks in todays market is TOUCH and THE FOLLOWING.

I absolutely loved X-Files and watched it from Episode 1 right until the end. I still watch the reruns if they show up on TV.

The one show I really liked that was only on for a couple of years was "Millenium" - it was on around 1992 I think.

Anyone see that show?

I was one of the original X-Philes back when the internet was young and I was the only person I knew who participated in an online discussion with strangers. That was fun. Some of the people in that group would make trips to Vancouver to "stalk" the filming.

I watched "Lost" religiously ... but it got bad near the end (like the X-Files did)

Today's shows that I follow that intently?

Scandal
Downton Abbey

I am also pretty fond of "Sherlock" and can't wait for it's new season to start on PBS.

Most definitely Walking Dead. Absolutely 100% for both myself and hubby, lol. It was Breaking Bad for a while, but we're a season behind and kind of got out of it. We'll see what happens when it starts up again, and we get caught up on last season.

The hubby and I really enjoy Game of Thrones, but we have a DVR so we can watch when it's a good time.

I once didn't watch anything on TV for ~7 years except for Star Trek the Next Generation. I had an appointment with the TV during that time and everyone knew where to find me, LOL!

I keep hearing about Downton Abby. I'm going to have to watch a few episodes to see what it's all about!

X-Files was easy to watch, because each episode had its own theme besides the underlying plot. Shows like LOST (one of my favorites) is tough to watch if you missed an episode and by the time the next season came, you almost forgot what was happening. There have been a glut of good shows that did that and then failed. THE KILLING had an interesting start, then died. I hope they don't do that to THE WALKING DEAD.

I could see KJ as a Walter White type - mild school teacher, but you better watch out if you push too hard!

I was obsessed with Breaking Bad

several of the 'old' HBO series - Sopranos, The Wire, Sex and The City, Deadwood, Curb Your Enthusiasm. I think Curb is still in production.
The only one of HBO's current shows I watch is Girls. With HBO Go and on demand, you can pretty much watch whenever you want.

I like what I've seen of Dexter and Nurse Jackie (we've gotten a few seasons from Netflix)

Downton Abbey !!

The Dowager Countess ROCKS !!

I was a big X Files fan. Watched it religiously and then would come into work to discuss the latest episode with co-workers. Today, we discuss Downton Abbey.

I haven't watched a show recently that I had the same dedication to as the X-Files. I keep hearing about AMCs The Walking Dead and know that it's already has cult following.

Do you have such a show where all else shuts down when it's on? (I mean you NEVER miss an episode, loved ones and friends all take a back seat so you can watch it, lol)
