The TV program the Wire is absolutely brilliant. Its widely considered to be the best TV series of all time.
If you like Sopranoes you will also love the Wire. Its about gangs and police in the city of Baltimore and is really cleverly written and directed.

Doctor Who (again!) and its spin offs SJA and Torchwood
QI
Mock the Week
Never Mind the Buzzcocks (when Simon Amstell was on it)
Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
Gilmore Girls (guilty pleasure)
Heroes (the beginning grips you, then the ending disappoints, then the previews grip you again)
True Blood (real vampires don't sparkle, they burn!)
Being Human (stupid premise, excellent show)
The Mighty Boosh (I'm Old Gregg)

TV shows... so many to enjoy!

I'm most excited about Lost at the moment, final season just started. Hope they end this well.

I watch Supernatural with my wife, also in it's last season. We prefer Dean to Sam ;)

Current tv shows that I watch on my portal media player device thingie on my way to work by train include:
Simpsons - sticking with it till the end, although it's not as funny as it used to be.
American Dad/Family Guy/Cleveland Show - usually get a few laughs
Big Bang Theory - kind of hit-and-miss for me, they have some wonderful stuff, but some jokes are getting old
How I Met Your Mother - started off very strong (like My Name Is Earl) but dragging along now.
Two and a Half Men - to humour my colleague :)

Better off Ted - quirky
Parks and Recreation
The Office (much more sitcommy than the original version, but it did grow on me)
30 Rock
Fringe

You do really notice that shows peak at season 2/3. You Brits have it all figured out: stop after a couple of seasons at a high note :)

Oh and I, too, enjoy Star Trek ;) Still have to get started on Doctor Who though.

I have removed the links from this post as they contained a virus. Don't bother welcoming this poster, they have (after a quick Google search) registered on about 96 message boards and only made one post that includes the same links I deleted.

Beware of new posters who post something simple and include a link either in their post or their signature.

My choices are pretty mainstream....

Fringe (John Noble is an absolute scream, I got a signed photo of him as Dr. Walter Bishop for Christmas)

Bones

House (Big Hugh Laurie fan, I have the complete set of Jeeves and Wooster, still have to watch several of them)

NCIS (Another signed photo I got for Christmas was David McCallum as Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard)

Law & Order: SVU

When it's in season, husband and I watch American Idol but I hear rumor that this season is Simon Cowell's last - I'll probably lose interest if he leaves.

Ghost Hunters
