    I've not seen most of those on that list, apart from South Park, although quite a few of them are shown on Brit TV. I love the fact that Top Gear is on that list as it's great entertainment, despite Jeremy Clarkson being unfailingly rude about American cars! (But funny with it, although he loves the Mustang).

    My Name is Earl is great to watch. Occasionally I'll watch Brothers & Sisters, but my particular favourite US programme at the moment is Reaper. Light, but good fun.

      Fringe is like a newer/odder version of the X-Files with more weirdness and a lower quality of writing, but good nonetheless.

        Now we've moved on to a test sampling of Weeds: omigod what a (foul-mouthed) riot!

          Am i the only one who has NCIS on their can't-miss list?(mine is very short). Great mix of humor and action. And the politically incorrect dialogue is refreshing.

              It's top-notch as far as acting and interpersonal sub-plot weaving, but I have a lot of trouble glorifying a serial killer, even marginally.

              I feel the same about movies that make "heroes" out of Mafioso-type gangsters and pirates.

              Just me.

                  A good new show that started tonight is Confessions of a Teen Idol on VH1. You might give it a try even if you normally dislike reality shows.

                  The cast is a bunch of washed up teen idols. One, Jamie Walters (Ray Pruit on 90210), shaved his head and now bears an uncanny resemblance to Wariner. (And I think his girlfriend looks like A. Felix.)

                  The theme is fame, its loss and pursuit. A lot of athletes here can relate.

                        Just to be fair to Dexter, for those who havent seen him,he is not your typical serial killer. He's more of a serial avenger, killing only those who meet the "code". In the first show his first victim is a guy who likes to rape and burying little boys for instance.

                          I have difficulty sympathizing with Mafioso bad guy heros. Maybe it is my savage ancestry but I love righteous vigilante shows.

                            The TV season will not even start until "24" comes back in a week or so.

                              There aren't 25 best (current) television shows. The current list is much shorter.

                                I'm guessing your use of 'savage' was advisedly ironic, cuz we ALL share that "you mess with me and mine, and I'll exterminate your DNA from the face of the Earth" mentality! :wink: Comeuppances, even overtly vicious ones, scratch a collective-unconscious itch (with the exception of this last Rambo movie, which was waaaay too over the line!)
