    Bring Back Television

    The pathetic state of network programming in 2005 has really chaffed my hide.  If you look, you can find out how I feel about it here, or here
    But you really want to know what to watch?  Here's the list.
    Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. Lesbians, vampires, and kung-fu.  Perfect.
    Star Trek - The Next Generation - Seasons 1-5.  After that things got a little out of hand.
    The Twilight Zone/Night Gallery (original versions).  Classics, all.  Why can't anyone make scary shows anymore?  Also, it must be said:  Rod Sterling was a stud.
    Soap/WKRP In Cincinnati/Barney Miller - Quite simply, three of the funniest shows to every grace the small screen.  "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."  Stunningly funny.
    I'm pretty sure that all of these are available via The Man on DVD.
    There are more that I know I'm forgetting, but I don't want anyone to feel left out.  Feel free to leave your selections in the comments.
    You'll notice that I didn't include the rough 'em up, shoot 'em up stuff on my list.  That's ok.  Instead, I'll post this:
    ...for all you A-Team fans.
    "I pity the fool."  Heh.

    Not counting cable (Battlestar Galactica, Adult Swim):

    "24" can be pretty entertaining, if you can watch it regularly.

    I like "Bones" too. It's fun, and it's nice to see Angel getting work, but it's not supergreat. Cute science-chick, though.

    "House" is pretty reliably interesting. It's fun watching Hugh Laurie be a bastard (even though I occasionally get "Blackadder" flashbacks when I watch him).

    "Numb3rs" is fun too. It can be a little goofy when they have to stretch too hard to get things all mathed up, but it's always enjoyable.

    I rely on the DVR to actually be able to watch these shows with any regularity. I only barely know when they air, or which channel they are on.
