Ok,
I picked up Family Guy from here (and liking it a lot!)

And,
I have just started with:
Initial D: (too early, but) 8.5/10
Just 3 episodes done, but, I see - it has a nice story line to start with!
Some very basic things about driving, that seem to have built a fastest downhill/mountain drift driver - Takumi!

The graphic is pretty simple! (and Japanese kinda - DuH! It is Japanese!)

but, I am liking it!

Finished:
Everybody Loves Raymond: 9/10
Even though, I felt it was pretty predictable at the end season, still I was always happy to see the antics of Ray and Frank
Its definitely a good watch!

Care,

Ace.

I've started watching those reality shows on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic, like 'I Shouldn't Be Alive' and 'Jailed Abroad'. Fantastic, is what I'd say. They are quite thought provoking.

Anybody here likes Rocky and Mayur's Jai Hind ? (NDTV Good Times).
I do, and gives a pretty good layman's view of our armed forces, peppered with Rocky and Mayur's light hearted banter.

Started watching MTV Coke Studio. The first episode was aired last Friday. It's a nice program which have music and only music. Basically they are trying to gather different artists from different region/culture of India in one single platform and showcasing the talent. They are mostly trying to create a fusion of different types of music Although the first episode was not that great as expected but they are evolving and will gonna be a great program to watch for music lovers. There were some great moments though and I feel that they'll become better as time goes by. And the best thing I like about it that there is no voting, no fake emotions/drama, no judge and nor even any anchor. It just music and that's what I like about it.

Sherlock was awesome. It got so popular even though it was just 3 episodes, that they actually thought of the second season only after public demand. Wonder when we will have their sense of fabulous scripts, slick storytelling & production values. We have to make do with such utter garbage on our Television channels. Sigh.

I have been watching a TV Series - THE OFFICE & am into Season 6. Its one of the funniest shows i have watched & am dreading what i am going to do after the series gets over.

We (Wifey & me) like it so much that we'll really miss all the characters once we're done with the 7th season. The next season in the US starts in Fall, 4th week of September.

Where do you watch it?

Bigflix has videos of the first 2 seasons, so I have watched those, but not watched the future seasons.

Wifey's cousin is an AD in films & is an aspiring independent filmmaker. He has a good connect with established as well as newbie Bolly directors, scriptwriters, etc. Most of the time we get rare english movie dvd's/tv series, etc. We watch & return as & when we're done & what's available.

Recently watched and absolutely loved the following:

1. Spartacus: Blood & Sand
2. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
3. Game Of Thrones (season 1)
4. Breaking Bad (season 1, 2 & 3) - Strange that nobody mentioned this (unless I am blind and didn't see the post). Its critically acclaimed and one of the top hits on HBO in States. I assume most of you guys are following what's on TV and no channel is airing this one at the moment. But if you rely on internet for your favorite series then you might wanna give this one a go. For those who never heard of this series: Its a story of a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal illness and doesn't have much time left to live. He turns towards criminal life and starts manufacturing methamphetamine in assistance with one of his former students with the aim of securing his family's financial future before he kicks the bucket. Once you start watching it, I bet you'll be glued to it.

Currently watching:
1 Breaking Bad (Season 4)
2 No Ordinary Family (Following this on TV)

There are tonnes of other shows on my hard drive which I yet to watch.

Default Re: Television shows: What do you watch?

I started off with Friends I borrowed from my friends @college and was really hooked
These are the ones I regularly watched.. 1 day after it aired in the US.
1. How I Met Your Mother
2. Psych
3. Big Bang Theory
4. Two and a half Men
5. Lost

But since all of these were having off seasons.. I got the facility of watching it on TV for a change..

1. Las Vegas
2. Castle
3. Mad Love
4. Everybody Loves Raymond
5. Glee (Not very good.. but better than the Indian Saas-Bahu stuff )
6. Franklin and Bash

But recently the programming changed and they show is Master Chef Australia!! Which I frankly hate and have no interest in.

Will look through this thread for more masterpieces.

2. Initial D (ordinary graphics, excellent story)

Rest are the usual

3. How I met your mother
4. Californication
5. Two and a half men
6. 24
7. Dexter
8. Firefly (after being discontinued, fans took out a full page ad to bring it back but production costs were too high.)
