TV shows

Does anyone have recommendations for a TV show on the broadcast networks that jcobleigh and I should try watching? We reduced our cable significantly (thus reducing our cable bill significantly), and we are thus no longer able to follow Alton Brown's Good Eats on the Food Network or Stargate on Sci-Fi.

We are currently attempting to tape an episode of each of the following shows:

  • Joan of Arcadia
  • Lost
  • Law & Order: Criminal Intent


We had tried watching the first two episodes of Boston Legal, but found ourselves overwhelmingly underwhelmed. Except for the (surprise!) fact that, given the right material, William Shatner can act! He was actually the only one who had a hope of keeping me interested in this two-dimensional Ken-and-Barbie-play-lawyers waste of time.

I guess unethical people trying to have deep and meaningful moments while remaining unapologetically unethical doesn't work for me.


The nice thing about taping shows, though, is that we (or rather, mostly I) can pause them to kibitz freely without preventing the other person (i.e. jcobleigh) from actually hearing the dialogue and watching the show. Things like, "Do these people do any paperwork?" (Carrying file folders around unopened doesn't count!) and "How did she find time in law school to get a degree if she spent the whole time learning how to be a model?"
