Curious to read about what everyone's watching these days. Do post your favourite shows.

My latest have been Sherlock and Fortysomething (love Hugh Laurie, and, of late, BC from Sherlock). Am now working my way through Gavin & Stacey. Also, CAN. NOT. WAIT. for Sons of Anarchy to start. Brilliant show. Gritty and bloody at times. (Incidentally, I also loved Deadwood, and am probably the only female in existence to make that claim!)

My Primary watch-list is made up of (and in order of importance) NCIS, Doctor Who and Top Gear. These are the three shows that i always make the time to see when they air.
Other than that i'm mostly been recently watching Supernatural, Sherlock, NCIS-LA, White Collar, Warehouse 13 and That Mitchell & Webb Look.

That Mitchell & Webb Look.

This new series has been sh*te. :( First two series were much funnier. That Sod Cancer sketch is epic though.

Shows I always catch: Top Gear, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Mock the Week, Futurama, Mongrels (all the sh*tty pop culture references and shock humour aside, the actual premise makes it quite fun). There's others as well, but I can't remember.

The sketches are too long winded this series. Most of them have the punchline about a 1/3 of the way through, and then they drag it on. The worst for this is the Pint and a Prayer sketch.

Yeah, and as a result the sketches don't really seem like sketches, more concepts that are only very vaguely funny. It has been getting better as the episodes go on though. I haven't seen the sixth one yet, but I've heard good things about it.

Well I saw the third Sherlock last night, and in spite of a general loathing of anything previously featuring Dominic Cumberbatch I have to confess it wasn't bad.

Just about to watch University Challenge and do some ironing.

When I'm really really bored: Cops, world's wildest police videos,
When it was on and new I was watching Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole
Couple of anime series on crunchyroll.

Otherwise TV is pretty boring.

If nothing's on I just head to the computer, do some work, play some games, watch youtube vids, hit the bed.

The only things I'm looking forward to are, the new top gear, family guy, and chopped champions (which is coming up soon). Love the food shows.
