We're relying pretty heavily on Netflix. I also have to start studying for the PE exam, so that helps, as well.

But I hear ya. OOOOF! There's nothing on.

USA plays new episodes of Burn Notice, In Plain Sight, and Law & Order:CI.

That's the new stuff I watch...and reruns of NCIS.

I'm focusing on Harper's Island for now.

Psych doesn't start until August 7 and Brando is not happy. I'll get to see one episode before the wedding stuff kicks in, and then who knows when I'll be able to catch up? Thank Rupert Murdoch for Hulu!

True Blood seems to be popular here among people who's opinions I can for the majority of the time side with. The only problem is I really really don't like vampires stuff much.

It sucks that Psych is starting so late, or well it seems to be. I feel your pain there, Brando. However in July the second Psych novel is supposed to be out... that could be a short distraction. Also, 'grats on the wedding plans!!! I didn't realize it was so close.

RC, what is Better Off Ted?

I've heard good things about Burn Notice, Batman, but I've just never got into it. I wish USA would do a marathon or something to get caught up to the new season. What I have seen of the show it is very serial and I hate jumping into shows that are that serial... I usually wait until they are done or start watching them in instant syndication.

lol I think I just need to get a Netflix account. They have TV series for rent don't they?

I've been watching I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.. haha... guilty pleasure show

A LOT of TV Land... Roseanne, Married with Children, Cosby Show.. woo hoo

finished reading Schulz and Peanuts... the biography of Charles M. Schulz and Forver Odd by Dean Koontz and that JK Rowling short stories book

Well he's in Oz so if he is addicted to TV he's either piping in good TV or he's watching marathons of Kylie Minogue in Neighbours. ;)

I'm so in love with So You Think You Can Dance.

So.

Watched the first two episodes of Mental and realized that not only is it crap, it's super crap because they're ripping off their own damn television show.

Yeah, the only good thing about Mental is the smokin hawt assed Ozzie chick who used to be on The 4400. The rest of it is crap.

My son and I are watching a lot of TNG too, JC. Started with Best of Both Worlds and then continued with Season Three... mostly because that is what WGN is airing. lol
