    Burn Notice is the best new show in years.

    My favorite must-sees are:

    - Lost
    - Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles
    - Galactica
    - Family Guy

    Mojo, I've never watched 24 either. Doesn't do it for me (although you think with all the nuclear explosions, I'd have tuned in at least once).

    As for the Galactica finale, I was pretty disappointed. Although, I predicted a while back that Baltar and Six were somehow orchestrating the whole thing. I had originally foreseen a "St Elsewhere" type ending in which it's revealed that the whole thing is a computer simulation being run by the two (who are scientists at the Kobol Colleges). I guess having them be "God" works just as well.

    And two additional notes for the Galactica addicts:

    (1) There is a new TV series pilot coming to Sci-Fi called "Caprica," that chronicles the life of Joseph Adama (the Admiral's dad) and family, set 50 years before the last series. It shows how the "skin job" Cylons were originally created.

    (2) This fall, the TV movie "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" will air, showing the war from the Cylon perspective (stars the regular cast).

    It's the follow up to the original Life On Mars. I didn't like the direction it took in its first episode, but had changed my mind by the end of the second.
    Hated Life on Mars, don't think I'll watch this follow up. Anyway my BBC America channel hasn't had anything worth watching in 6 months+-. It is the lowest of the low in British trash TV.

    My must see's

    Dexter
    Oh, yeah I forgot about Dexter. Maybe cos I get it from Netflix, a half year late.

    My pick for best TV Drama series of all time: The Wire. Followed by Six feet under
    My pick for best comedy: Fawlty Towers...."I know, I know."

    Do you watch Nip/Tuck? Sackhoff was outrageous when she came on board for the last 3-4 episodes of last season.

    Yeah, pretty sappy, yet I generally liked the way they finished up Battlestar.

    But, you are right - the bummer is that it's over!!!

    Breaking bad.
    Mad Men.
    Damages.

    I also have to watch, but only because my wife wants to watch: Grey's Anatomy (she's coming around to seeing it as adolescent as I do) and ER (thankfully finally over). In return she is forced to watch 24 and CSI L.V...and Prison Break, which is also greatfully coming to an end.

    I used to like Closer, but it's now a comedy.
    I put up with Saving Grace for a season, but found her too outrageous and the Angel too annoying.

    Sniffle... so you and I just went down one with the tear-jerker ending to Galactica.

    Oh, yeah, I try not to miss the Unit. Those guys are my "take no prisoners" heros. Between them, they speak any language, fly anything that will fly, expert in all weapons, immobilize/kill any adversary with one blow...etc.. We need more Units in real life...

    Saving Grace
    I had great hopes for Saving Grace because it is (supposedly) set in Oklahoma City. I like Holly Hunter's flawed character and watch it when I can remember to but was disappointed that, apparently, they came to town, took a couple of exterior shots and went home.
