I know there are Joss loyalists out there, and this forum is entitled "Other Science Fiction Shows" so, I wanted opinions. I'm currently on the fence between SCC and Heroes.

Suggestions?

I agree Chuck and Burn Notice. Am I the only person reminded of Magnum PI when watching Burn Notice?

Burn Notice, Chuck and Heroes, I thought I was going to give up on Heroes, but the new season has got me hooked again.

Me too. But upon examination , I don't know why. It really isn't as good as first season, not ny a long shot. Yet watch, and watch I do.

definitely loving Chuck, although I'm waiting till the end of the season of Burn Notice to watch it all at once.

I'm also wondering why I'm liking Heroes so much, I think it's just that so much is happening, and you don't know who is good or bad anymore. Plus, I'm a sucker for superhero stuff.

I guess for me it's between How I Met Your Mother, Chuck and Psych (although Psych recently ended with an AMAZING season finale).

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Lost is on top for me, followed by Chuck, Life and TSCC.

I continue to watch Heroes, Fringe and BSG, but they have been disappointing.

Burn Notice is a show I've heard great things about but I've never seen it. Yet.

I saw Chuck. Fun, but television. It's get smart, almost. It needs to be a snappy comeback every 20 seconds. Drop the pretense of meaningful relationships.

Heroes is awesome, I think it's excellently constructed, and I don't care for superheroes, and I'm only watching the last season, and I hate television, people might be underrating it, but I have to dig up earlier eps.

I'm getting a definite nod towards burn notice here.

i watched one ep of fringe, it would take a lot of pushing to get me to watch another. I was a real x-files fan, and it's not that fringe doesn't live up to it, it's that fringe is just television. Dollhouse sadly is turning out to be just television as well.

My only reservation on heroes is the whole unity thing they have going on. I get that there used to be more strife. strife is good.

i'm less into comedy not because i like it but because i find it unfunny. SNL, Daily show and colbert are funny to some extent in decreasing order, but it's been a long time since i saw a genuinely funny show. they get too caught up in soap opera, as do the action shows. I'll give burn notice a spin. I'm debating giving chuck a second chance. Heroes definitely has me hooked. I like all the characters and I know who they are. I think if it were my show i would shed a little less light into the shadows.

We talking best shows, or shows that are better than Dollhouse? (Because that second list is going to get really long really fast, I'm sorry to say).

My favorites include (not in any order) THE OFFICE, SUPERNATURAL, CHUCK, PRISON BREAK (increasingly outrageous but still fun), LOST, and the animated CLONE WARS.

Reaper
Supernatural
Burn Notice
Damages
Breaking Bad
Mad Men

Enough for ya?

Sorry, but I'll watch all of those before Dollhouse, and I gave up on SCC earlier this season.

Dollhouse hasn't grabbed me yet. Chances are, it never will, because I doubt Fox is going to give it much longer to find an audience.

DT - Dig up the FIRST season of Heroes. I think you'll be intrigued. Last season was pretty awful, honestly. This season started out kinda iffy (Heroes: Villains), but since the holiday break they've come back fairly strong.

The only reason the second season of heroes sucked is because they wanted to give it a resolution for the writer's strike. If they had been able to follow the original idea,

Select to view spoiler:


actually having the virus shatter on the floor

then it would have been much more interesting and more like the first season. Honestly, season 2 was more like a half of a season than anything else.

Clone Wars - great show, breathtaking in HD.

Battlestar Galactica - the naysayers may disagree but it has come back strong in season 4.

Rescue Me - not sci-fi and it isn't back yet but it will be very soon...after a 3 year hiatus...at least it seems that way to me.

Best Sci-fi for me is:

Fringe, hands down. I admit that some of the eps didn't quite deliver, but overall they're solid and have me coming back for more. John Noble as Dr. Walter Bishop is one of the top five characters on TV today; and next to Jayne Cobb, one of the most fun.

Chuck: I don't consider this show sci-fi, but I've caught several eps and I'm digging it. I catch the ones I miss on Hulu.

Comedy:

Big Bang Theory: The development of the characters is what drives this show that is fast becoming one of my favs. I set aside my Mondays between 8 - 9 p.m. for this one and the next show I'm about to mention..........

How I Met Your Mother: The premise, the characters, the stories and the writing. There are 2 actors that drive that show: NPH (Our very own Dr. H) and Jason Segel, who plays Marshall (Allyson Hanigan's TV husband) both are Hi-larious.

30 Rock: Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. Not all their eps are gems, but even the bad ones make you chuckle.

The Office: One of the best ensemble casts on TV today. Brillantly written and almost never disappoints.

Special Mention:

Dollhouse: It's too early to tell just where this show is going. For one thing, I believe Fox has had their hand in the cookie jar far too much, which, for me, spells trouble (sounds familiar don't it. Joss should really consider HBO). So I want to give it a chance. The way things have transpired with this show is so "Deja Vu" it's scary.

Lie To Me: First, I really like Tim Roth in this new Fox series. I like the premise and it's funny without being asinine. Catch the pilot ep on Hulu and you'll see that it's quite entertaining. What I particularly like is how they make the show current by including the mannerisms of celebs when they presumably lie. You have to see it to understand what I mean (you'll get a chuckle out of it). This is a show to watch, you will not be bored as you try to figure out who's lying.

These are the shows that I make time for.

Wow some of you have long lists of television shows. I own a TV and it is turned on sometimes as background noise while I surf the internet, but when I want to actually watch television I just go to hulu and watch the shows I want to watch there. I never really got into Heroes because I started watching it in season 2 on hulu and it seemed pretty lame at the time. Lots of people told me that to really appreciate the show I had to go back to season 1, but they don't have season 1 on hulu, and I don't know if they show it on TV anymore.

I’m right there with ya ECGordon, Chuck, Life and my wife just gotten me started on Dexter. I still watch Lost but I usually wait till I have 3 or 4 episodes to catch up on. Smallville is one we see also.

I have a sister that watches Burn Notice and loves it. May need to check it out.

I like "Lie to Me" but it hasn't quite grabbed me as much as the others yet. I really like Tim Roth but I wish they could make the other characters more interesting. I haven't given up on it yet.

Honestly there isn't much good out there right now IMO. I like Chuck but it's not deep. It's just good for a simple laugh IMO.

I'll go with Spectacular Spider-man. It's a pretty good cartoon especially since they're staying kid friendly with it. Other than that it's Chuck and pretty much nothing else IMO.

Up to the end of Season Three I would have agreed with you, but since then it has definitely run off the rails. I have stopped using the phrase "jumped the shark" to describe a show that has done something horrible to the plot and/or characters. The new phrase is "joined the circus."

I haven't really watched TV in a few years. Theres two TV's in the house. One is controlled by my Girlfriends father and is always on one of the movie channels (He's 75 so I don't bug him) and the one in the bed room that's never on...

I spend most of my time on the computer anyway.

Back when I lived alone, I didn't have cable so all I got was CBS. Loved the Unit (Missed Summer's run though) Numbers was great as well.

When I did have cable, I watched a lot of Discovery channel stuff, Deadliest Catch baby!

I just finished watching the first season of Pushing Daisies, and I really enjoyed it. It's no Wonderfalls, but I found myself smiling through the whole thing.

Honestly, after seeing the first 2 episodes of Dollhouse, I'd rather watch my Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Wonderfalls DVDs.

SUPERNATURAL - Always delivers. Best special effects, best characters, Best cinematography and great plot arcs. Solid stories too!

LOST - Well it's just one of those shows that has you gripped, but I must admit you have to be into that kind of show (Long plot arcs). I know friends who hate it just because they don't know what's going to happen. Strangely that's why I love it.
SMALLVILLE - For sheer tv fun I like this show. It's pretty straight forward but the character dynamics are superb. Erica Durance has interpreted Lois Lane to perfection. Lex Luthor has been warmly explored as an individual, and Tom Welling's Clark Kent comes off as a wonderful tragic hero. Always saving the day but paying the ultimate price for it. Plus SMALLVILLE has the best stunts on tv!!!!
BONES - Again straight forward but the two leading characters are engaging. It has it's weaknesses with some of the stories but it's a very enjoyable 45mins. Oh and I'm liking Sweets. The way Booth tears into him for being so young is hilarious!

Gave up on FRINGE after 7 episodes, Battlestar Gallactica and Heroes after there first seasons.

That's it for Sci-Fi

Try BURN NOTICE. It's excellent!

Seconded. I've sat through 3 eps of Dollhouse now, and I found the second to be better, but the third was damn near unwatchable for me. Honestly, I love Joss to pieces, but I'm NOT getting into Dollhouse at all. I find myself rolling my eyes, and even occasionally cringing - actually CRINGING! That's never going to be a good sign for any show...

I'd put Dexter on my list, but for me it's kind of in another pantheon of TV, since it's premium-cable.

And Robot Chicken is simply must-see TV.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think the boys at Penny Arcade have it right.

http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/2/27/

You know, I don't hate it, but I'm starting to lose patience with it. There are a few intriguing moments per episode, and that's all. Those moments really need to pick up, and pick up fast, or that little voice in the back of my mind asking "what's the point of this?" is going to drown out everything I've found interesting so far.

I know Dexter's on premium cable, but it's just the only thing I get itchy to see more of. There's plenty of enjoyable shows. I really like Chuck, and a few others that my fevered brain can't pull up the names of right now, and there's a lot I just haven't seen any of. My current schedule rarely lends itself to watching a show every week; I have to remember to watch online or get someone to record it, so that's why I say I put the effort in to watch Dexter.

Though I definitely watch Robot Chicken online fairly regularly, too. It's so random and twisted and full of geeky delight <3

I guess this would be my top 50 of shows that aired sometime in the 2008-09 season or didn't air this season but are still shows that are in production (Curb Your Enthusiasm).

Factors I account for: How satisfied am I after watching, how much do I look forward to an episode, how upset am I if I miss an episode, how consistant is the show, how long will I let the show sit on my DVR before I watch, and how much stuff about the show don't I like even though I like the show overall (I'm looking at you Life on Mars, 24, and Heroes!).

STORYMARK


Not really impressed with Dollhouse... but I don't watch too much TV, so I only have a few I consider better:

BSG - Which granted, will only be a "current show" for 2 more days, but it still kicks much ass.

LOST - Love this show.

Bones - Not a big favorite of mine, but I enjoy it every time I happen across it.

House - Same deal as Bones.

Venture Bros. - 4th season starts soon, can't wait!

Kings looks interesting, although it seems modeled on the Book of Samuel (David and Saul and all the accompanying soap opera).

Important people don't do field work.


Last night's episode of Reaper really reminded me of why I started liking the show in the first place. The Devil with his blowup-doll just before the sexual addiction support group, not to mention his running of the AA meeting was simply one the funniest things I've seen in the last month.

It took me a long time to discover the Venture Brothers, and I'm certainly glad I warmed up to it. The second season episode "Victor Echo November" is hands down one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life, period.

I usually give a show three episodes to hook me. For that reason I'm glad I slept through the awful back up singer episode of Dollhouse and watched "Grey Hour" instead. "True Believer" ended being great as well, and now I'll happily stick with the show as it gets more and more intersting every episode.

I'm very, very sad to see Battlestar Galactica go away. I think the show has been vast, epic, and magnificent (I could do with less Adama drinking, collapsing, and crying in these last episodes though. Where's the Commander that choked the shit out of Athena, thinking she was Boomer in "Kobol's Last Gleaming". I miss that guy.)

Patienly, patiently waiting for Fringe to come back on the air if for no other reason than this conversation:

Walter: After all, I do have a recorded IQ of...uh...

Peter and Astrid: 196.

Walter: Really!?

There's the reason to watch the show right there!

Also, I think Chuck is a fantastic show, but I need more Baldwin involvement. Lately, they've just had him hanging out in the background and grunting. The Casey-centric episodes were all great, so let's have more of those, please.


I also can't turn down an episode of Mythbusters or Dirty Jobs. Or Jeopardy! unless it's a rerun.

God help you if it's a rerun!!!

THREAD KILLER SUPREME!!!

(And, before one of you smartasses says it, that's not Thread Killer with sour cream and tomatoes.)

Like I said, if it has a good finale, I'll start buying it on DVD.

But the journey is the worthier part!!

I'm loving Lost at the moment, it's probably the one show that still actually surprises, me, and that I can't guess everything before the end of the episode.

Reaper being back is brilliant.

Castle is going really well, second episode was slightly weaker, but was still great.

and Chuck, as always, is absolutely brilliant.
