    Not normally my sort of thing (it's a semi-musical about a high school "show choir"), but a friend sent me some episodes of "Glee" (starts on E4 11/01) - and it's great!

    Have also heard good things about "Leverage" (a US show similar to "Hustle") that starts on Bravo soon.

    glee's been on here for a while now and although Ive not actually watched it the trailers they keep bombarding us with look crap. Apart from the eyecandy factor of the cheerleaders / chiorgirls.. I really dont think theres any way I would watch it.

    Leverage is really good Ive seen both seasons, but its a bit more far fetched than Hustle.

    Hustle is amazing, glad to see its back, but they only make 6 episodes which is pretty poor

Prison Break just started to get good again. A couple of good new ones in The Mentalist and Fringe as well. Cant wait for the new 24 to start!
    I cannot wait for the new season of 24. I've watched them all and really get caught up in show.

    Fringe is excellent.

    Flash Forward has been good. On mid-season break at the moment, cannot wait for it to come back.

    Top Gear is not the same as it used to be. I don't mind it, but it get's silly sometimes. I'm a boring old fart.

    I have been enjoying Defying Gravity and am gutted that in October they destroyed the set and decided there would be no more seasons. Gutted.

    Edited here - forgot to mention Dr Who. Watched them all since Eccleston came back. Torchwood is also very good.

    The new season of Survivors on Tuesday looks good. MB was good in Hotel Babylon (yes I watched that as well).

    But the one for me over the past year or so has been Lie To Me on Sky 1. I've even bought the books behind the science of facial and body expressions. Tim Roth is brilliant.

    I'm sure there are more. One thing I will say is that BBC trumped ITV over the Christmas holidays.

    Forgot about Hussle - last week's Kylie start was great. The new Detective is sexy.

    Talking about that I also watch Total Wipeout just for Amanda.

    Edited to be clearer:

    After watching one or two episodes of the Simpsons. I thought it was rubbish and couldn't see the point of it so I've never watched it again.

    I await the backlash. Each to their own.....

    I think the problem is that it's being sold in some places as "the new High School Musical"; now i haven't seem HSM, but I doubt they have dialogue exchanges such as:

    (Emma is worried that Rachel has been forcing herself to vomit.)

    Rachel: I tried, but I guess I don't have a gag reflex.
    Emma: One day when you're older, that'll turn out to be a gift.

    I hadnt seen the simspsons till i got to australia for the 1st time in 2000. When the olympics were on, one of the cable channels was showing 24/7 simpsons for people not interested in the olympics. It made great post-pub viewing, and I really got into it. Been a fan ever since

    If you haven't watched it, how can you say you don't see the point in it... You can only make a judgement call once you've sampled something. Like I can safely say that 24 is incredibly boring - as I tried to watch a few episodes and fell asleep each time.

    Sorry - I'll edit what I said. I've watched one or two episodes and thought it was crap thus never, ever watching it again.

    :-) Happy?

    I can accept you don't like the Simpsons, but dear God, please stop using the word season. Never has such an insignificant little word made my blood boil so much.

    Series old chap, Series!

    Is it any wonder some threads can turn nasty? Everyone wants to have a go at everyone - joke or not.

    Does it really matter what word I use? (I see floods of "Yes" coming through).

    I know, but it does make you realise how people can take things the wrong way. Another person might have gone into a rant about not giving a damn about what other people think and it could have turned into one of these threads that are getting too familiar around here - weirdly enough I can see it happening on another forum as well.

    Anyhow, I'm just off to watch the last Season of Lost in color ;-)
