I like Prison Break and Criminal Minds too, also enjoy the Unit. I watched Brothers and Sisters on Sunday night...that could have potential.
Yeah, I remember watching the 4400 for a while too, but it got very forgetable very quickly.

Watched the beginning of Brothers and Sisters, but gave up when the cliched gay brother turned.

Don't know if Northern Lights is available yet...its very funny, stars Robson Green. It started off as a Christmas special in 2004...it was so popular that a series was made and aired in the UK at the end of last year or early this year.

Anyone watch deal or no deal? I remember someone here saying they were applying to go on it. Well last night they had a couple on there, wife was USC and was the player, hubby was British and one of the three supporters. They kept going on about how his parent's hadn't seen their daughters. In the end, they made a "suprise" appearance, having been flown in by the show.

2000 acres in the sky, or whatever it's called, that was a bit of a laugh, the missus really liked it..3 series on dvd on amazon.co.uk at half the cost of the series compared to amazon.com

Do you mean 2000 Acres of Skye with Michelle Collins and Paul Kaye?
That was a brilliant series, but god it had a really sad ending.

I watched the first of the new run of ER, wow it was fab, with some great acting. Also watch Project Runway, Miami Ink, Americas Next Top Model, and too much more crap.

We've decided to watch the first few of all the new series and then decide which ones are the usual load of drivel. Up to now we like Smith, Shark, Heroes and Vanished. 'Til Death is not too bad but can see it getting old very quickly.

I also watch

The Office
My Name is Earl
ER
House
CSI
Bones (I'm not sure why)
Survivor
Amazing Race
American Idol (with daughter)
24
SOPRANOS (my absolute favourite)
Lost


The Street starts on BBCAmerica next month and it looks as if it's going to be good.

Jericho might be good...rather liked Vanished and Justice....Eureka is rather weird, but kind of fun...

Anything really dire? What about comedies?
I have 'Jericho' ready to be watched in my DVR. I recommend 'Heroes', I watched the first episode earlier today, it is superb! We are into 'Eureka', it's a great show. I'm a bit of a nerd, you see!
