I'm currently addicted to Dexter. I have watched the first 3 seasons over the weekend. This was to replace my True Blood addiction. I hope a new episode of Grey's Anatomy appears soon.:carrot:

What TV show are you currently addicted to?

Even though the show has long since finished...the Sopranos! It is a brilliant show and if you can get past the violence, amazingly written. I bought every season tee hee.

Also the Office, and I have a feeling Biggest Loser is going to be good this season :)

My absolute favorite addiction is LOST. I can't wait until January 21st when the new season starts!!! My poor hubs works during its timeslot though so I have to wait until Friday night before we can watch it together - DRAT!

Remember the HBO commerical where the hostess freaks out on her guest if they made noise during the show? That is me on Sunday 48 out of 52 weeks of the year.

I'm also addicted to the main HBO shows:
Sopranos (Love them all but season 2 is my Fav)
Six Feet Under
Rome
Sex in the City (Best TV show ever!)
Oz
Big Love (It's getting good)
Entourage (just started watching this)

I've only watched The Tudors on Showtime (I prefer HBO)

I gave my fiance' How I Met Your Mother season 1-3 for Christmas, we had never watched it, but are now so addicted that we're well into the 3rd season. I also recently got seasons 1-3 of Supernatural, but I am only a few episodes in.

I watch every episode of Dexter and Big Love when they are in season, and True Blood was added to that list this year.

I am newly addicted to House reruns. Oh, and I am watching West Wing for the first time, I am on season 6 of 7.

Some other random shows that I am addicted to are: Project Runway, Top Chef, House, Little People Big World, The Soup, The Colbert Report, Big Brother, Ace of Cakes, Pushing Daisies (RIP), Naked Science

Annnd my favorite show of all time is Sex Feet Under.

I'm addicted to dexter too. I'm waiting for desperate housewives to start up again .. 'cause I know I'll probably addicted to the new season too.

Also, my all-time fave show is six feet under. A pure slice of TV heaven.

I watch Dexter while I'm on the elliptical or treadmill. It makes me WANT to go to the gym because then I find out what happens, hee!

I'm TOTALLY addicted to Real Housewives of Orange County and New York. Also, when it was on, I was totally addicted to "Rock of Love" which is the most horrible, embarrassing TV reality show ever.

Mazza ~ I totally forgot about Desperate housewives <3. I had to watch all the DVDs since my roommate watches it on Lifetime everyday. Did you see True Blood yet? That was written by Alan Ball who brought us SFU.

Choir ~ Your gym shows Dexter? I want to go there! I, too, have been sucked into the VH1 reality show **** as well.

Me too. I'm so ashamed. I have very low-brow tv tastes... Top Chef, The Bachelor, Wife Swap, Intervention, etc. I'll watch most any of them, but I try to refrain, as it drives my DH crazy. It's the mindlessness of it, I guess. And the voyeurism. :o

No, I put the shows on my iPod actually!

Dexter is about a forensic analyst (Dexter) who works with the FBI (?) hunting serial killers. However, Dexter himself....is a serial killer who kills other serial killers. Hee!!

Oh yes, Intervention I usually watch on Friday nights if I'm by myself. It's usually about an hour of intermittent crying. lol. I used to like Trading Spouses but the editing really irritates me, so I end up a lot of the time having it on so I can hear the sound while I clean the house but not actually watch it.

Add True Blood, Survivor and Gossip Girl to this list and those are mine. I like recording and watching a bunch of episodes at once. Waiting each week for Dexter I thought I was going to die.

I watch very little television. My kids went to their dads for 6 weeks one time and when they got home and turned on the TV it was still on Cartoon Network where they had left it. So...it really embarrasses me to admit this, but I watched all three seasons of "Weeds" in one weekend. I love, love, love that show. I downloaded a bunch of the different versions of the theme song and they're on my MP3 player. My dad recommended it to me and now he's telling me that I would enjoy "The Sopranos" and gave me all of them on DVD. They're sitting in my bedroom calling to me, but I'm afraid to get started! I'm also interested in seeing "Dexter" because of what I've heard about it in the breakroom at work. I've always thought that TV would be a dangerous thing for me to start liking...and now it looks like that may be right!

The Sopranos by far, I've watched all the episodes and still watch them when their on. Also six feet under when it was on, I loved it though it was a little depressing. The other shows I'm addicted to: Monk, House, Mad Men, Dexter & The Office (absolutely love it both US & UK versions). Also, Bones (I don't really know why I watch this show I don't even like the title character but the rest of the cast I like.

As far as reality based I'm embarrassed to say I watch Big Brother religiously, I love John and Kate plus 8, what not to wear, and Ruby. Biggest Loser American & Australian versions, also project Runway I've watched the Australian, American, & Canadian versions.

I think I'm addicted to watching whole seasons over a few days. Usually during hot days, I don't typically watch much tv in the fall and winter but catch up in the summer. I can't stand having to wait from week to week to see what happens also the internet has made it possible for me to watch shows I wouldn't otherwise watch b/c they are just there.

My favorite, never-miss show is "Law & Order: SVU". I watch it daily on Citytv and tape it if I'm not at home. If I ever get into the RCMP I'd like to eventually specialize in sex crimes, human trafficking, etc., pretty much the same kinds of crimes they solve on the show. I also find Christopher Meloni very sexy so that's another reason I watch it!

Other shows I like: Supernatural, Fringe, COPS, Grey's Anatomy, X-Weighted and Family Guy.

01-09-2009, 12:23 AM
Nip/Tuck
Grey's Anatomy
Lost

& anything reality. Rock of Love Charm School was the trashiest, most wonderful show on TV ever! Or maybe I Love Money.

I'm bad w/ the reality, & my DF hates it!

I will admit.......I love The Hills (hiding my head in shame)

Heroes -- I'm going nuts waiting for it to come back on!
The Big Bang Theory -- 1st season was just ok, but the 2nd season is becoming my favorite show EVER.
The Office -- I hated it at first, but I'm hooked now.
Cash Cab -- it's the only game show I can stand, Ben Bailey is fun as heck, and the questions are just hard enough that I know 90% of them but I occasionally learn something new.
How I Met Your Mother -- it's not my favorite, but what else is there to watch at 8:30 on a Monday? And frankly, I'll watch anything with Neil Patrick Harris.
Attack of the Show -- I'm sure no one here has even heard of it, but I watch it daily!
Family Guy -- yup, even the new ones.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force -- when I'm up late enough, which is rare.
Seinfeld -- it's always on, and somehow most episodes are still funny the 5th (or 10th or 15th) time. :D

I love No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain--got to see him speak last year, it was great.

Just about all the HBO series shows, I love watching with no commercials.

My favorite all time show, though, is Red Dwarf. We own the whole thing and I heard they're finallly coming out with some new ones after many years!!

Nip/Tuck. And I'm very ashamed to admit that I'm usually watching whatever reality garbage train wreck is on VH1 - right now it's Rock of Love Bus.

I also love Survivor and America's Next Top Model, but they're not on right now. :(

Family Guy is one of my favorites and it's almost ALWAYS on.

Stuff Happens -- Bill Nye's new(ish) show on Planet Green
Living with Ed
Time Warp
Girls Next Door -- anyone know what they're gonna do now that 2 out of 3 are gone?
Two and a Half Men
The Late Late Show -- on Fridays when I'm up that late - it's the only late night show I like, Craig Ferguson reminds me of my grandfather (who is also a crazy Scotsman) only much cuter

Well, nothing has happened on the show yet... they must have been filmed a while ago... but Kendra is supposedly engaged to Hank Baskett (WR for the Philadelphia Eagles) and Holly has been seeing Criss Angel (that creepy magician).

SUPERNATURAL IS AWESOME! They are on season 4 and I'm TOTALLY in love with it- lol I'm usually not one of those kinds of people but I'd have Jensen Ackle's babies if he asked me to lol ;) Even Jared's- they are both SOOO hot!

I also watch a lot of the VH1 reality shows- though I have refused to watch Real Chance of Love and the New Rock of Love Tour Bus.

I can't wait for the next "I love money" though.

I guess I'll watch AI this season- I'm interested to see the new judge- at least my sister will be happy about that lol.

Chance said he wasn't in love with anyone. Not that I'm surprised.

I can't wait for I Love Money 2 either!!! And Megan...she's a piece of work. She was a hot mess on the Charm School reunion! She deserved it when Sharon dumped her wine/juice on her!!! LMAO!!!!

ChefsGirl
01-15-2009, 11:23 PM
She WAY deserved it! Sharon is so awesome. She was so cool about it Megan never saw it coming.

Watched part of Sober House tonite. I'm not sure what I think about that whole deal. I kind of feel like the cameras are encouraging the patients not to take rehab as seriously as they should. It's sad.

gigglez
01-16-2009, 11:59 AM
Yeah I agree Megan is just so messed up and in a way I think that part of it has to do with the cameras. But then again it is just a thought. Watch part of Sober House not too sure either what to make of it. Wanted to watch ABDC but forgot about it starting last night. At least I know it will be on a few more times before the next one on Thur night. Good thing about vh1 and mtv they air the episodes over and over.

01-21-2009, 05:08 PM

The best thing I ever did was toss out the TV's and cut cable 10 years ago. I don't watch TV .... on TV's that is. :D

Then someone told me about www.hulu.com and NOW I AM ADDICTED TO

Heroes and Sons of Anarchy ARRRRGGGHH! LOL!

I am SO glad they finished the seasons!

Also when the Soprano's were on even though I didn't have a TV I was over at my little sister's house once when it was on and for the rest of the season I would come over whenever it was on I loved that show!

Some of you people are addicted to like 4 or 5 shows! UNREAL!
