    I work from home and I'm pretty much never off the clock, so I end up getting through a ton of TV while I work. What do you guys watch and what makes it good? Feel free to add YouTube or streaming series too.

    I watch a lot of History Channel watch nearly all the current series on there.

    CSI in all its various forms. I like to know what they can do...
    It helps me plan on how bump off those celebs that do my head in, without getting caught :Devil:

    I've watched odd bits of CSI here and there but never really sat down and watched it through. Revolution think I'm at the end of season 1 and haven't picked it back up again, it seemed to be getting a bit lost. Falling Skies and Sons are both phenomenal, watched both since they first dropped.

    Helix is new from the SyFy channel right? How is it @Phil1978? I haven't given Arrow a shot, but heard good things.

    Yes, Helix is made by the SyFy channel and was being shown on channel 5, got to about 6th episode and it's stopped, must try to find out why, I was really enjoying it, the story is getting interesting, I'd recommend it as I would recommend Arrow if you like the Marvel and Dc stuff.

    Archer but you can watch it at 3:30an on 5 USA.

    Working my way through Breaking Bad, on series 3 now and it is very good. First series a bit slow.

    I just checked my normal "place" for shows, it's on episode 11 in the states, ratings look pretty good too so I'll give it a shot :Niceone: About to try "True Detective" as well. I'm not someone who's into Marvel or DC but I might give Arrow a shot nonetheless.

    Breaking Bad is great, I honestly think it's a bit over-rated but a solid watch nonetheless, Season 3-4 are the best, I got a bit bored towards the end personally.

    Ermm I don't actually watch much, when I do sit down I end up mostly watching random stuff.

    A few times when I've been working on a car project in the garage on my own, I've put something random on from Netflix. Seems to help breakup the boredom of working on me lonesome.

    I've recently worked my way through all of Arrow and found it pretty good. It's based on the Green Arrow which is marvel or DC but it's not really super hero based like agents or S.H.I.E.L.D

    In the night garden and waybaloo mess with your head but he seems to enjoy it. (He's only one!)
    The adventures of Abney and Teal too. Daft but you can't stop

    • Avatar the Last Airbender (try it to believe it)
    • Day Break (one season)
    • FlashForward (one season)
    • Jericho (worst call to cancel a series ever)
    • The Lost Room (mini-series)

    Some ones that get worse/disappointing in later seasons:
    • Lost
    • Dexter
    • Supernatural
    • True Blood
    • Californication
    • Homeland
    • Prison Break
    Other I've watched lately:
    • Orange is the New Black (easy watching, not amazing)
    • Boardwalk Empire (slow at times)
    • Suits (really good)
    • Lie to Me (cancelled but you can't not love Tim Roth)
    • Justified (Timothy Olyphant is amazing, the show gets bland)
    • Revolution (doesn't seem to know where it's going)
    • The Newsroom (complete drama but love it)
    Missed out more of the common British shows, love Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, Only Fools and Horses etc. Also, most things Sci-FI.

    I get to watch a lot while I work... "True Detective" I got round to starting last night and have nearly finished the first season, it's so well produced, fast becoming a favourite.

    - Bones
    - How I met your mother (although current series disappointing so far)
    - The Big Bang theory
    - Yes, Minister (and Yes, Prime Minister) - the original series
    - Wheeler Dealers
    - The Middle
    - Two and a half men (the Charlie Sheen series, but the new ones aren't too bad, despite the reviews)
    - Question Time
    - Star Trek Enterprise (my favourite of all of the Star Trek franchise)
    - Any live football, or live cricket
    - News channels, bit of a news hound especially if nothing much on elsewhere!

    I also used to really like Angel (the Buffy spin off) but you never even seem to see it repeated these days...

    Sacrilege, DS9 is the best :Whistle: But I do love Seasons 3-4 of Enterprise (when Manny Coto became one of the Executive Producers).
