    Now this might seem a touch blasphemous ;), but what do you people watch other than Sci-Fi? 😯 *Logan receives stares of disbelief, shock, outrage, and contempt* 😉 😛 (joking)

    My newest guilty pleasure is the half-hour Puppets Who Kill (on the Canadian Comedy Network). Lexxist Sadgeezers should particularly relate to its sexy and sadistic humour. http://www.puppetswhokill.com/

    Unfortunately, like Red Rose Tea, it’s only available in Canada. Pity.

    *picture edited to make it more palatable to The Board*

    Of course I’m really big on Black Adder[/url] as I’ve probably mentioned a gazillion times before.

    Believe it or not I get a big kick out of watching HoC on C-Span.

    I love “24” but that season is over now. “The Daily Show” is a much watch for me daily. Other than that I don’t catch too much TV since weekend Sci-Fi went to pot =/

    I’m always embarassed when I watch the House of Commons stuff — so immature, and yet one good thing about those parliamentary scrums is that it keeps the politicians very human in the eyes of the electorate — we can see them warts and all. It’s nice to know that our leader can’t just fly off to some ivory white tower for some extended stay where he will be insulated from the insults and scorn of the world AND the official opposition. 😉 Yep, it’s kind of hard to think of Canada’s PM as a glorious leader when you watch CSpan.

    I also like the Daily Show, and 24. 😀

    I really enjoy Frasier.

    Other than that it’ll be science and history programs like
    Horizon and ‘what did the Victorians ever do for us?’
    Or films

    I have to admit though I’ve not watched much real TV for a long time. Too many Lexx DVDs to work my way through.

    There are shows that aren’t Sci-Fi?! 😯

    Get that man into Bonnie Hammer’s office…stat! He needs Sci-Fi Channel re-education!! All is Sci-Fi if Bonnie says it’s Sci-Fi!

    Me, no TV. Tried the Saint, nothing doing. Currently, when I have time, Horatio Hornblower, which I originally thought was porn, and my daily dose of Danger Man.

    I also like (love) Samurai Jack, although we’ve only seen the first series in Australia..new episodes in August though! Malcolm in the Middle, Larry Sanders and The Sopranos remain current faves, and I’ll continue to watch Homicide: Life On the Street reruns up until they put a toe tag on me…

    I watch other shows of course, but more out of interest or obligation rather than committment or preference.

    Conquest is pretty awesome. I just wish the History Channel would stop screwing around with it’s time slot. I started watching it last year, was on every Sunday at 10, then it was on Saturdays during the day, now I’m not sure when it’s on anymore =/

    Nothing better than watching Peter Woodward(?) school his arrogant students 😈

    Seems here lately that I’ve become more and more a fan of anime.
    Power Puff Girls, Dragon Ball Z, Cowboy Be Bop, etc. I have also become a fan of, God Forbid, The Iron chief. Figure that one out.

    Has anyone here stateside caught an ep of ‘Most Extreme Elimination’ on TNN? It’s an imported gameshow from Japan that’s been dubbed in English a la ’60’s Godzilla movies. Two emcees, dressed in what appears to be full Imperial costume, comment on the antics of several teams of contestants competing in crazy, outrageous, and rather dangerous-looking physical feats. It is absolutely hysterical!!! Logan, this show is right up your alley. If you haven’t seen it, look for it! (Do you get TNN in Canada?)

    I’ve also developed an unexplainable obsession with anime. Current faves include Cowboy Bebop, InuYasha, Ruroni Kenshin, and Kikaider.

    I also regularly set my VCR for Monk (Tony Shaloub is too funny!), The Dead Zone, and the Law & Order series (all of ’em). CSI’s pretty good, too.

    Sometime on Sundays I think. I have a TiVo so I’m mostly oblivious to the exact times of shows.

    I like Cowboy Bebop, too, but I’ve had it on DVD for ~3 years now, so I didn’t list it in my “current” shows. 😀

    Ohayo Purple_Uncicorn! Yeah, I have seen it, good stuff! 😀 I love those wacky Japanese gameshows — have a real yen for them. So many of the gameshows and talkshows in Japan are so seriously wackdawg, I’m glad that they’re exporting some of them. I so missed them. I think we get TNN, I always forget the names of stations. Another Japanese gameshow, quite different, that I regularly watch is Iron Chef.

    Kai reminds me of Chairman Kaga.

    Here’s a link CLICK[/url] that I think you’ve seen before, be warned that some of the shows are of very questionable taste.

    Oh another show I really liked that some of you might have seen is Banzai 🙂 🙂 🙂 Actually a Brit series, but so Japanese, but shown on Fox in the US, and also shown in Canada. Sugoi! Yatta!

    This is terrible…

    But I really liked Beverly Hills 90210 and Magnum PI when they were on.

    Right now, my best program not sci-fi would be Everwood.

    Of course, the Brittish classics are still by far the best in the world. Nothing can compare to good old Python or Fawlty Towers. Not even the biggest of Hollywood budgets could recreate as much none sci-fi entertainment as the likes of Cleese, Palin and Co.

    Its funny how as up until now I didn’t know how much all my TV viewing revolved around sci-fi.

    Logan in your original post you mentioned a show “Black Adder”.
    I’m unfamiliar with that show. Is it currently on?
    What is it about?

    *GASP* No Blackadder?

    I can answer a bit of that, Blackadder is a British historical comedy starring Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean). It ran for 4 seasons, plus a Christmas special and a little mini-series type thing and a made-for TV movie and such. At the end of each season, (mostly) Edmund Blackadder dies and is reincarnated as himself in a later life, gradually moving down the Karmic scale due to his conniving, sarcastic attitude.

    In Blackadder I (1485) he is a medieval prince (His father is hilariously played by Brian Blessed), then Blackadder II (1558-1603) he’s a lord at the mercy of someone obviously meant to be Queen Elizabeth. Blackadder III (1768-1815) he’s a butler to the prince regent, and in Blackadder goes Forth (1917) he’s a grunt in the army during WWII. Probably because of some unexpected heroics at the end of Blackadder goes Forth, in Blackadder Back and Forth (the movie), he steps up a notch as scientist who invents a time machine.

    His cronies follow him through time as well. His servant Baldrick (Tony Robinson) is always one step lower than he is.

    Amazingly the surrounding details of the humor are historically accurate. One woman only considers buying Blackadder’s flat when she learns he craps out of a window because she can’t stand “those messy indoor things”. In another instance he is prescribed leeches by a doctor who is subsidized by the owner of the biggest leech farm in Europe. It has a lot of dirty/ ribald humor for regular viewing, but it’s one of those things which even gets better if you’ve read a few books.

    It’s available as a complete DVD set and often gets shown on BBCA or PBS in the States. Don’t know about elsewhere.

    Blackadder II is my favorite. I think the character was at his wittiest then, Tim McInnerny’s character was at his most idiotic, and Queenie was so well played by Miranda Richardson. This was also the season which introduced comedic masters Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie to the cast, if I remember right.

    Hey, lexxrobotech, what is Everwood, if you don’t mind? I think I heard the name bevore, but I can’t place it.

    I will admit to liking Magnum PI. And MacGuyver. I wonder if I would like them now?

    Black Adder[/url] is absolutely hilarious! Rowan Atkinson stars in it, but it’s a great ensemble.

    I enjoyed all of the “seasons”, I think Red Dwarf fans would really like it too. In the first ones there’s a lot of physical comedy, and it was bigger budget so it has less of a setty feel to it. However, the ribald and sarcastic dialogue was much sharper in the following seasons.

    The second season might also be my favourite (it was nice to see a very suave Lord Blackadder after his initial turn) but then again maybe not. Dr. Who and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans should pay special attention to Episode 3 of the second series called “Potato” which features both Colin Baker (Dr. Who) and Simon Jones (Arthur Dent). I’m an admirer of Rik Mayall, so his turn as Lord Flasheart was also lots of fun. The regular cast was fantastic. Fry and Laurie were certainly marvelous additions.

    Technically I wouldn’t call Captain Blackadder a grunt in the 4th season as he is an officer, but not a gentleman certainly. An officer would be a step up from being a butler one would think (at least socially), if one weren’t aware of his horrible situation in the trenches (and of course Blackadder 3 finishes up with him as the… won’t spoil it). If one were to take A Black Adder Christmas Carol ( seriously (which one wouldn’t) then being bad will eventually lead to him becoming master of the universe, but being good will only lead to him being Baldrick’s slave and, even worse, wearing his loincloth (Baldrick is Blackadder’s feeble, yet eminently lovable manservant. *”just pop your manservant on the table…”* 😉

    An early incarnation of His Divine Assassin? 😉

    If you want to watch it, and I strongly suggest you do (though it’s a love or hate show), you might want to try your local library (mine carries it) or a video store.

    Black adder was a hilarious show! I whish someone would run it again.

    Currently, all I am watching regularly on TV is Rebus ( I’ve only caught a couple of episodes so far, but I like it) and Enterprise, along with too many music videos. Annoyingly, BBC america plays way to many “trading spaces, what not to wear, fixing the garden” shows instead of classics like Blackadder, but I am grateful for the mysteries like Rebus and Cracker.

    I might check out Carnivale on HBO, a show about a bunch of Carney’s travelling in the “dust bowl ” era of the US. It sounds like it might be sinister enough.

    normally I watch films and read books, simply due to lack of time to follow many shows on tv (then again, there’s not that many decent ones that break new mould for me anymore)

    As for non-sc-fi

    24 (even though it’s style over substance IMHO)
    Smallville

    Repeats- Only fools and horses, blackadder, fawlty towers, father ted – all classsics of British comedy

    Oh, talking of comedy Malcom in the Middle (hillarious, even surpassing the long defunct round the twist I used to watch as a child), friends, my hero, my family

    Watch the simpsons every so often, but it’s not as funny anymore

    There is not much I watch anymore. I’ve always been a movie person rather than a series person; though my friend told me to watch “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” it’s entertaining at times.

    I, to, read more than I watch; that way I take my imagination out for a spin and not someone else’s. Everything is too visual for me now; i find it dull, dull, dull. Well there are, in the belief system I have ….. 10 factors in life; appearance is only one of 10. I’m exploring the other ten freely while bombarded by appearance everywhere.

    and i was just telling my housemate how much more i enjoy the simpsons now, than i did a few years ago.

    one thing i dont miss, even though i dont go out of my way to watch is neighbours. it’s on when im eating dinner – even when i go to family night dinner on a monday, or my book group on wednesday, it’s always a staple. for some reason it seems to bring everyone closer, or at least stimulates conversation, and sadly heated debates.

    im really quite ashamed at the number of shows i watch..although to be fair, they’re all on at different times of the year, some ratings some not – and actually tend to be on at the same time, so they replace each other:
    charmed
    dawsons creek (although i do seem yell at the tv a lot more when watching this.)
    gilmore girls
    skithouse (ahh, now this is funny. if you’re australian that is… you just cant go past the disgusting jokes and skits of the aussies!)
    vicar of dibley – a classic if ever there was
    ohh, and whatever of Jamie Oliver is on at the time. they keep changing it, playing repeats, then new, then repeats again every few weeks. i hate free to air tv.

    I do not have satellite or cable or, even…..”rabbit ears” – so no TV for me….. When I am at my parent’s house, I usually just look at “Headline News”; but on Sundays I always try to see Futureramma. Sadly; the NFL has taken it’s time slot (and I only get interested during the later part of the season…..).

    I didn’t watch TV at all last night, it wasn’t even on. I think that is somekind of record for me. Unlike FG, I am used to having the TV on ALL the time, whether i am actually watching it or not.

    Tonight is star drag night. We will see how the crew is getting on in their search for the Zindi (oh yeah this is a nonscifi thread!). Last week there were actual computer generated creatures, but they didn’t really blend in with the rest of the shots. Which made me think about Lexx, and how in S1-S3 there were so many FX components, that even though they might be cheaper than those of enterprise, the sheer number of them created a kind of pallette that ended up looking more consistent and therefore “real”.

    I continue to be melted by all the scottish accents on Rebus. It’s absurd how sexy I find them! Why??? My ancestors obviously didn’t like the place else they wouldn’t have left—- (or maybe they were asked to leave). I also can’t figure why brits do a better job with murder mysteries.

    I just came back from holiday having not watched any Tv for a week so I spent the entire day today watching very old tapes of DS9 which I dug out of the back of a cupboard somewhere and I’m now feeling very depressed. I taped them off the TV so they included the adverts and all and in just four GREAT episodes from early 1999 there were adverts for 4the season Buffy, 1st season Angel (which later series never lived up to) ER when Mark Green was still in it, Babylon 5, and a whole host of other shows I really loved. At the moment, there is just about nothing. I feel bereft. Since Buffy ended, there is no good new cult TV on any more. Waah!
    Non sci-fi TV favourites? Hmm, tricky…Well, the aformentioned ER, (though I do really miss Mark, and I don’t know why they decided to make Luka such an asshole last season), I really love offbeat Brit comedy, so Coupling, Spaced, Black Books, and the ever-classic Blackadders and Father Ted, M*A*S*H*, 24, and a bunch of BBC classic miniseries like Pride and Prejudice, Testament of Youth (again starring Peter Woodward, if anyone’s interested) Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, and Anna Karenina. In general, though, my best friend and I are so bored with current TV that we’ve ended up writing a series of our own – a very black comedy drama where almost the entire cast end up mentally ill at some point – and are currently trying to pitch it to channel 4. So I guess that did some good. Otherwise, I like history and science documentaries, and I’m a film student, so I watch a lot of them!

    I still watch the Simpsons regularly too. Haven’t watched much wrestling in years; not since Cyndi Lauper was queen. I question whether the World Wildlife Fund should have exclusive use of the WWF acronym, I mean wrestling is pretty wild too.

    So the web caught you too? Can be difficult to extricate onself from it at times in my experience. More TV is the answer! Or is that love… 😕 😀

    Rather than starting a new topic on this, or hijacking someone else’s topic…

    FU! (as in the sinister Francis Urquhart)…

    One of my absolute favourite miniseries is coming to BBC DVD: the FU trilogy: House of Cards, To Play the King, and the Final Cut (well, The Final Cut didn’t quite make the cut as far as I’m concerned when compared to the brilliance of the first two).

    Here’s a synopsis from Upcoming Disks

    Ian Richardson is Sir Francis Urquhart (FU to his friends), a scheming politician who combines the guiles of Richard III and Iago. In House of Cards, the first mini-series of the trilogy, he is the Tory Chief Whip, and has just been disappointed in his expectations by a new prime minister he considers weak. Furious, Urquhart sets about the destruction of his own prime minister. In To Play the King, Urquhart, now PM, comes up against the willful new king (who bears a suspicious resemblance to the current British heir to the throne). And in The Final Cut, Urquhart contemplates his legacy. Based on the novels by Michael Dobbs’, these three mini-series, scripted by Andrew Davies, are that rare thing: a television show that is better written, more literate, and more devastating than the source material. Alternatingly suspenseful and hilarious, propelled by Richardson’s explosive performance and dangerously seductive asides to the camera, this is one of television’s finest hours. See this, and you see TV drama at an absolute pinnacle.

    I read the books as well, and didn’t think they were anywhere near as good as the series. For Shakespeare buffs, those who are interested in politics, and this who like dark humour, this is essential viewing.

    I believe it’s up there with other brilliant must-see miniseries such as Potter’s The Singing Detective and Kieslowski’s Polish drama, Decalogue (titles available on DVD).

    No, Haven’t seen that…. but… if it is not on TLC, HGTV, Discovery, Disney or Cartoon Network I most likely don’t watch it…. sighhh, Can I get billed for only the 5 channels I mainly watch? 😀

    I looooove

    Kim Possible of course…. So cool a super hero who wears off the rack and worries about her complexion.

    Trading Places – Praying that the homeowners won’t get Hildi or Kia trashing their house this week.

    While you were out – What can I say…. I love the sneaky design shows

    Design on a Dime – Annoying hosts, but usually good ideas

    Dexter’ Lab – Dexter RULES and Mandrake Drools

    American Chopper – Is this the week that Senior has a stroke from aggravation?

    Junk Yard Wars – Cool stuff by people who know how to build amazing things from nothing.

    and anything history, Industrial Revolution or before. Yeah History…. those who do not remember it are doomed to repeat it…. or at least tune in again when it is re-broadcast. 😀

    My current favorite is HBO’s The Wire (created by David Simon, the creator of Homicide: Life on the Street ).

    The Wire recently won a Peabody award, and its description of the series sums it up nicely.

    The Wire ‘is one of the most intense and complex narratives television viewers have seen. Probing the full range of human behavior, The Wire has the depth and intensity of a complex novel. Both cops and criminals face dilemmas where boundaries of right and wrong, honesty and dishonesty are constantly blurred’ and interrogated.

    Television doesn’t get better, in my view. 😀

    Hello all…I thought I’d chime in with my two cents.

    “Trailer Park Boys” (I belive that’s the title) is a show that I’ve enjoyed recently. It currently airs on BBC America and it’s basically a faux reality show a la “Cops” that follows daily life in a Canadian trailer park. Naturally, hilarity ensues at every turn thanks to the wacky characters who are often found stone-drunk in the middle of the street after a two-day bender. Good stuff if you enjoy this sort of humor, along with the many <Beep> sound edits due to salty language.

    Another Canadian show I like is “The Industry”, which I would watch on PBS on late nights. I don’t think they have aired it in the last year but it was a fantastic series about the treacherous employees of a small Canadian production company trying to get ahead in the cutthroat movie industry. Side-splitting plots and great characters.

    It interesting to see how much quality programming comes out of Canada. I am not Canadian, by the way, but I do think their humor and creativity is severely underrated (or maybe it’s just that I’m the only one who hasn’t noticed before and so the joke is on me.) And yes, I do know about John Candy, Jim Carrey et al.

    It seems every show now comes out on DVD, which is fantastic for people who never can remember when something they like is on.

    Ive been watching Frasier DVDs, they’re *really* good. Also got Strangers with Candy a few months ago, but damn them, they didn’t include all the eps, even though the packages come in “seasons”. But regardless, that’s some great comedy too. I highly recommend it.

    Actually I take that back. I was completely wrong.

    Originally I had assumed there was only 2 seasons, each with 15 episodes.

    When the truth is, it’s 3 seasons, with 10 episodes(freakin’ Comedy Central)….but they haven’t/wont release the 3rd season, in fact it’s not even listed. 😕

    So imagine my confusion when I was looking for the series finale, and the Crazy Step-Father, and Will Farrell as the Native American Campguide eps on these two sets 😛 I just assumed they cut them not wanting to pay royalities to the guest stars in those eps.

    Hopefully they will release Season 3, it has some of the best episodes. The extras on the first 2 seasons are pretty good too, they include commentary, behind the scenes, and an interview session akin to Inside the Actors Studio

    BTW They recently announced they’re making a feature film of SwC, that should be pretty good too.

    I like to watch Without a Trace (although Channel 4 showed the episodes out of order and missed some 🙄 ), Futurama, a lot of Anime, I LOVE Monty Python! Umm….my secret shame is watching Hey Arnold! on Nickelodeon 😳 .

    I’ll get me coat (I also liked the Fast Show!)

    I’d like to give snaps to “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” 🙂

    After reading all of these great responses, I realized my viewing habits aren’t as narrow as I thought! Mayhaps there’s hope for the old boob tube after all . . . at least in the non sci-fi dept . . . sometimes.

    Well, I admit to the ‘Law and Order’ (all 3), ‘CSI’, ‘Monk’, ‘Mythbusters’, ‘Cold Case’, and on the SF/fantasy front, classic ‘Outer Limits’ and ‘Twilight Zone.’ If we got the Hallmark Channel, I’d confess to ‘Perry Mason’ reruns.

    I’ve been watching a new show called “Blowout” on the Bravo channel. Yet another “Reality” t.v. show but this one is pretty good. Ruggedly handsome Salon owner gets in over his head trying to open a second location in Beverly Hills. For some reason I really enjoyed watching the guy cry like a little girl in the second ep 😆

    My faves are The Oblongs, Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister, Allo Allo, Flying Circus…

    And I like detective stories like Hercule Poirot or Cadfael…
    And Twin Peaks of course (is it sci-fi? I think not…).

    MASH is also OK. E. R. is OK, too…
