Boston Legal, a true hoot!

William Shatner, a true force of nature. I'm not sure what KIND of force of nature, but... DENNY ÇRAIN!

I'm very behind on the Glimore Girls because you need cable here to get the station they're on, and I can't bring myself to spend the money because when I did have cable I still couldn't find anything to watch.

As for the Inspector, yeah, the books and the TV are very different; the author actually had something on her Web site about it at some point. I get the sense that the BBC made her the offer she couldn't refuse, or something, to do their own version.

Not sure what I think of the re-cast Helen, however. I'll give it a chance, though; the casting is pretty darn wonderful on this.

Inspector Lynley

Great that you mentioned him-I like those too, marye! Do you read the books too? Lynley and Barbara are quite different in the books than on screen, but still like the films quite alot. Is one series where we are not horribly behind you in the States.

I have also been enjoying Boston Legal-cracks me up. There is a German version (actors, etc. not a dubbed U.S. series) of The Office that is really funny. Have to admit that my fave lately is Gilmore Girls, and am waiting impatiently for the last season to start here.Top of my list though, of all time I think, was Northern Exposure.

Curb Your Enthusiasm- season premeir is a CLASSIC!

Larry David ( who George Costanza of Sienfeld is based on) is the Homer Simpson of
Sit com show people..he sets the bar so LOW for maie human behaviour-is pure ID.
devoid of any spiritual inklings or compassion he stumbles from one hilarious moment to the
next...He makes me feel like Gandh!
LOL..
The black penis season premier episode--second title could be the Schmohawk episode
is funniest show I have ever seen of Curb...maybe as good as the best Seinfelds (the bet,
Newman turkey basting Kramer yadi yadi...etc.)

How did this show go unnoticed and (ultimately) get canceled?

New Season

I love "Antique Roadshow" as well, marye.

In addition, we just got the Food Network in HD and there are too many shows to list (all) here, but some that rarely disappoint are: "Food 911"; "Good Eats"; "Diners, Dives and Drive Inns"; "Everyday Italian" and "Unwrapped".

Also, this past summer, I did enjoy the prime time running of the "reality" show, "On the Lot" (Fox). Not sure if this will be renewed next season but my middle son and I TiVo'ed this and watched when we had time together, which enhanced the experience for me (along with seeing Adrianna Costa each week - sorry I can't help myself). We'd both love to write a movie script one day and be involved with direction. (Producing a movie is too much work from what I could see, IMO). I also loved that the winner was a Coen Brothers fan.

Always chomping at the "bit" for what is coming to the Science Channel....
