Oh goodness. Hubby collects TV shows and he's always after me to watch 24, Heroes, Prison Break, and Studio 60.

Cold Case, Buffy, oh and I cried when Veronica Mars was cancelled if that counts.

15. What do you eat when you watch TV?
Anything, but usually junk food.

Not too often. Maybe a couple times a week or sometimes I'll go weeks without watching anything and then have to get caught up on all my shows.

Um, I think it was a Top Chef episode or maybe it was Alias?

Crime Drama like Criminal Minds, the CSI's, NCIS, Cold Case, and even the Law and Orders.

Full House I think. My grandma and I would sit down and watch it when I was a kid. The second was probably Who's Afraid of the Dark?

20. What TV show do you wish you never watched?
None really. Well unless you count the cancelled ones that I miss so much.

Weird for me? Shear Genius or Ghost Hunters maybe. Oh and Sons of Anarchy. Love that one but its not really something I would normally watch!

Friends

24. What show was cancelled too early?
Veronica Mars, Moonlight, Blood Ties, Buffy, Angel- you know, all my favorites.

  4. I love Ghost Whisperer but am not so happy with the way it is going right now. I loved Jim's character and was really angry when they killed him! Friends is one of my all-time favs.

  5. 24 and Heroes are both AWESOME shows!! You really should watch them. And I loved Sons of Anarchy!!

    I've always been a big Buffy fan, but I think the show I miss most is Firefly!

  6. Buffy rocks! (But then I'm a huge Joss Whedon fan.)

    Have you watched Lie to Me? It's a new show (only three episodes have aired so far), starring Tim Roth as a "deception expert who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover if someone is lying" (I got that from the website). It's similar to The Mentalist but much better written IMO. They explain how he can tell if a person is lying or not, which is really cool.

  7. Amy: I don't always cry at Cold Case but it does always leave me feeling a bit sad so I can't watch it too often. Love Jason!

    Carrie K.: Burn Notice is such a good show! Can't wait for this week's!

    Meg89: Thanks for hosting. My husband just loves Friends and because of that I've seen every single episode more times than I can even count so I really should change that first answer lol.

    Alea: Thanks again for introducing this to me!

    Samantha: Ugh, I know! I just don't understand why they did it if only to stick him in another body. Are they that out of ideas?!

    Stephanie: I know, I know. I will watch it eventually but I have a tendency to sit and watch things practically in one sitting which means I hardly even look at the internet until I've finished every available season. Can't wait for Sons of Anarchy to come back!

    AviannsChild: It still bugs me that she never learned Spike is alive :( No I haven't seen that. Sounds neat though.

  8. Clearly I need to do something about the fact that I've never watched Buffy.

  9. Nymeth is not alone.

    This post was like reading a foreign language. The only show you mentioned that I've watched is Friends. I am so out of it when it comes to tv.

  11. There are three seasons of Heroes out on DVD? Didn't know that. Not surprising, my store rather sucks for selection! I hear you on the cancelled Blood Ties. It still reruns and I only started watching it after it was cancelled..

  12. I really, really liked Veronica Mars, but I've yet to watch an episode of Buffy. Need to remedy that...

    Love Burn Notice too!

  13. Nymeth: Clearly! I never missed an episode until the seventh season, which between work, school, and friends I hardly had time to eat much less watch TV. Since I didn't like the sixth season it didn't much matter anyway. Recently I sat down and re-watched every episode in a marathan and I couldn't believe how much I laughed and cried. I really do miss that show!

    Softdrink: Lol. Oh, you're so missing out! I don't watch a lot of TV (actually I watch almost everything online or on DVD) but the ones I do watch I truly love.

    Naida: Hope you play! I'd really like to sit and rewatch all of the X-Files since I only remember bits and pieces now.

    Kailana: Yep. I think we may have picked it up at Walmart. I did that too. I didn't think I would love it so I decided to watch it after it was cancelled. Now I can't help but wonder, what happens next? I thought about reading the books but from what I've read, it seems to be a dramatic difference.

    Alyssa Goodnight: Hope you like Buffy! Sometimes Veronica Mars would remind me of it, just without all the supernatural stuff.

  14. I'm not a TV person but still, I enjoyed watching Friends many years ago. :)
