Weblog of the sweetest person you never want to piss off.



My Tivo schedule includes:

Nero Wolfe
Good Eats
Law & Order
Animal Cops
Nanny 911
America's Test Kitchen
Teen Titans
The Daily Show

Tivo suggests all sorts of shows that I might like, but it seems that it presumes that I will like things for the wrong reasons. I like Nanny 911, but I don't generally enjoy reality shows and I have no interest in watching The Apprentice or Survivor or The Littlest Groom or whatever is passing for reality television these days. I like Law & Order but dislike its spin-offs like Law & Order: Criminal Intent or : Special Victims Unit. I like Animal Cops, but Tivo doesn't suggest Emergency Vets or Venom ER (I have to remember to watch those on my own).

Instead of relying on Tivo to suggest shows I might enjoy, I turn to you, gentle readers: what television would you recommend I program the ol' Tivo to record for me?

Alias. We might not have Buffy or Angel anymore, but we can still watch the young and the beautiful kick some badguy ass. Favorite show at the Sass household.

My schedule is like this:

Teen Titans
Justice League Unlimited

Ghost in the Shell
Full Metal Alchemist
Cowboy Bebop

Star Trek: Enterprise
Iron Chef America

Stargate SG-1
Stargate Atlantis
Battlestar Galactica

Not a whole lot during the week, but a whole lot during the weekend.

I suppose I should start watching Law & Order again, but I wasn't pleased with the changes this season. I much prefer the ensamble acting in L&O: SVU or Vincent D'Onorfio (sp?) in L&O:CI.

If you get Showtime (and this show is pretty much the best & only reason to get it if you don't already), _Penn & Teller's Bullshit!_ is quite simply the best, funniest, most informative, most valuable show on TV.

Season Three starts in April.

Since 1993, I almost never watch TV anymore (not some kind of social statement, just a lack of time created by some signigicant life changes -- I have nothing against TV watching per se). The only two shows I miss are The West Wing and Gilmore Girls, both of which I believe are still on the air, though whether the writing is as fantastic now as it was when I was a regular viewer, I couldn't tell you. Have you tried either of them?
