I don’t watch a ton of non sports TV, but these are on my current must watch list:
Lost (I can’t give up now!)
Damages (My current favorite show hands down)
I also watch Californication, Kitchen Nightmares (good call danny) and Top Gear when I catch them. I tried Breaking Bad and Mad Men but neither hooked me. I used to watch 24, but gave up during this season. Same story over and over and the worst cast of actors ever.
All time favorite shows are not very surprising, The Wire and Seinfeld. I watched the entire series of The Wire over the span of 3 weeks. I couldn’t stop. I think I’ll enjoy watching Seinfeld reruns forever.
