Not finding much to watch these days. My favorite shows are in reruns. Okay, there are some eps of Gray's Anatomy I'll watch twice, but how about something new?

What are people watching?


I recently caught the pilot of Tim Minear's new show, The Inside. While I don't really like cop shows, I must give it a chance due to the staff (a lot of Mutant Enemy folks - David Fury, Jane Espensen, Ben Edlund) and the shades of Silence of the Lambs.

Initial verdict? Not bad. The lead female is O.K., and the internal dynamics of their unit seem to have a lot of potential. I'm especially interested in how they'll wring laughs out of horrific situations - I mean, they've got Ben Edlund and Jane Espensen. Silence of the Lambs by way of the Tick?

More than likely, it will be cancelled soon - ratings were low, and this IS a Tim Minear show on FOX, which means high quality, short run. But hopefully it'll get a chance (it IS summer, after all) and really find its footing.

I'm watching:

Charlie Jade (well, duh!)
The New Doctor Who (love it!)
Stargate SG1 (I have a crush on Mike Shanks)
Veronica Mars (clever show)
The Collector (I sorta work for the showrunner/cast)
Train 48 (huge fan, friends with cast and producers)
Show Me Yours (very upset it got cancelled)
FX (missed the series during its initial run several years ago)
Tales from the Crypt (missed its initial run)
The Inside (have pilot on tape, will watch this weekend)

In addition to all of these shows, I watch documentaries on History, Space, A&E, CBC etc. about supernatural phenom, medical research, bios of world leaders and infamous criminals etc., plus numerous home decorating and renovation shows on HGTV. All in all, I think I watch about 40-50 hours of television per week.

Mostly, as scripted TV goes, just the repeats of Battlestar Galactica, as I didn't catch on the first time around. Oh, and Medium, though there hasn't been a new episode for a couple weeks.

The rest are reality shows. I'd be interested to hear your views on reality TV--is it harmful to script writers' chances? Do you think it's changing the rules of scripted TV? Or is it something you don't have time to keep up with since you're trying to keep abreast of what's out there in scripted?

Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Adult Swim
Awaiting the first ep of Rescue Me
Re-runs of Gilmore Girls, never watched it before.
Boone's death episode of LOST that I TIVO'd.
NBA Finals
Lots of Sportscenter
Seinfeld and ELR re-runs.

No reality shows...ever!

Loved The Shield season that just finished. Actually thought it was better than Sopranos ever thought about being.

Anxiously awaiting Rescue Me and Battlestar Galactica.

I'm watching Entourage again, but haven't been bowled over by the first two episodes.

Guilty Pleasures: The 4400 and The Dead Zone.

I'm trying to catch up on Smallville since I watched Lost instead. Kind of a painful season to watch, though. Just don't buy Superboy as a quarterback. I want to catch The Inside and Veronica Mars, but they're conflicting with other shows.
