The Sarah Connor Chronicles


I started watching this on Netflix streaming after seeing your recommendation here and I'm really enjoying it! I can't imagine why Fox cancelled it after only 2 seasons. Josh Friedman (who wrote the script for the first two episodes) said Season 3 would have been their best Sad

I like non-fiction television and enjoy Nova, Secrets of the Dead, American Experience, The History Detectives. My favorite dramatic series on PBS is probably Foyle's War.

PBS is the best source for documentaries with American Experience, Nova, and all things Ken Burns.

Plus they always showcase the best mystery series and police procedurals on television under their Mystery series.

@Irishk,
because Fox waits to see if something is worthwhile and as soon as its established as good TV they cancel it to put on stuff like So You Think That You Can Be a Gigolo, or Or Temptation Trailer Park.

@GoshisDead,
LOL appears so. Maybe Summer Glau (fabulous as Cyborg Cameron) scared them!

I'm watching one of the funniest Thirty Rocks I've ever seen right now - the one with Matt Damon as the pilot that Tina Fey likes and Julianne Moore as Jack's lost love. The one where Kenneth tries to get fired...I'm laughing and laughing and laughing- and Matt Damon looks so cute in this one.

@Riddler101,
My favorite TV watching is on weekends when C-SPAN presents authors and their books, and some panel presentations. I also like the science and history chanels.

As for shows, I like Bones, Burn Notice, CSI and Saving Grace. Good writing and acting---not boring. I have found Parenthood to be enjoyable, well written and acted.

For talking heads, I like Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, and Charlie Rose.

I like Don Lemon, part time host on CCN. He's a class act.

I miss Bill Moyer's show on PBS - he was one of the best.

@plainoldme,
You have to see it - I guess it's an old one as it's on over here right now. I love 30 Rock too and I have to say this is one of the funniest ones I've ever seen. Kenneth gets drunk - if you can picture that.

It's all about weddings and guest stars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and another blonde girl whose face I recognize but whose name I don't know.

But I also like most of the shows on the discovery channel, shows like Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, etc

I watched "Sanford & Son" and simply adored Red Foxx.

"This is the big one Lucille". Comedy at its best.

I like Tim and Eric Awesome Show. It seems everyone who's seen it is either a huge fan or hates it completely. It's pretty bizarre, though.

Many of the TV shows I liked did not last for very long. So many shows are made for the lowest common denominator.

I like C-SPAN on weekends more than watching most shows on TV.

One show that started last year, Parenthood, I find charming. It's about a large family of parents, children and grandchildren, and their struggles to raise good families. It is well-written and well-acted, including the little ones.

Law & Order, especially SVU. I have seen some of these shows over and over again, and never tire of them.

I recently watched one of the new L&O Los Angeles, and was not impressed.
