    I like "Rookie Blue" because it is almost like a Janet Evanovich novel except the women have ambition as well as intuition.

    Sometimes I just want to tell Stephanie to wake up ! I guess that may be why I keep reading the books, I sure do not want to miss it when she finally ........ competes timewise with my quilting to read a book and annoying to not have it turn out the way I want (yet), my DD gets the books on tape.

    The PBS show Call the Midwife. The Big Bang Theory. NOVA. The Britcoms which are really reruns. I love the Pawn Stars and American Pickers. Not interested in shows like Cupcake Wars, or shows with weird ingredients. I love most of the Food Network shows, especially Anne Burrell. Love the new program about getting the restaurants back on their feet. Some of the employees are not to be believed! Eek, is this a reality show? LOL

    I don't watch a lot of the prime time stuff. NCIS of course but most of the rest is PBS, love Doc Martin and wish our stations were carrying All Creatures Great and Small again. The big thing is the channels I have discovered that run old shows. Everything from Ozzie and Harriet and Emergency, Adam 12 to Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone. Wish they would run things like Carol Burnett and some of the old dramas like Owen Marshall or Have Gun, Will Travel. (now you know how old I am)

    Love Good Wife, NCIS & the L.A. edition, Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five O & a new show called Scandal (some stuff really makes you think about the power in Politics). Used to watch Criminal Minds but it is getting too "dark" for me. Reality TV is an embarassment to entertainment. They are nothing but "Trash" TV. Maybe I just don't get it but I do not enjoy watching someone else's pain (wether mental or physical) on TV. This is just MHO

    #1 NCIS. NCIS LA getting better. tired of the family problem and his mom. get on with cases.... CSI is getting better but do miss Grissom. Major Crimes is pretty good. cannot stand any of the reality shows as they are all so fake. face it...they are in front of a camera, it is staged from start to finish. Baby Boo Boo is child abuse in my eyes. And for goodness sake, who cares what the Khardashians are doing today??? Have to admit, I am watching less and less TV these days.

    Sons of Anarchy is our Tuesday night cuddle up night for TV.

    I am fond of Boardwalk Empire but our current cable plan doesn't have HBO.

    We watch the 700 Club, FOX news, Person of Interest, Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, The American Bible Game, Jeopardy, and Quilt in a Day. All of them are timers set on the DVR so we do not miss them.

    I tried watching the New Battlestar Galactica. But I couldn't get used to a female Starbuck. The women were a little to aggressive and not the least bit feminine in my opinion. I guess I am a fan of the original.

    I prefer the older version with Lorne Greene and Dirk Benedict. Although I do love Edward James Olmos' s work. He was fantastic in Miami Vice and America Me.

    I like Good Wife, Castle, Middle, Modern Family, Person of Interest, Blue Bloods, Call the Midwife, anything to do with Sherlock Holmes. I am disgusted with DWTS because Bristol Pallin is on there and dances like a broom but good dancers are being kicked off. I watch TV and movies while I sew and quilt. Plus I live alone so I am in charge of the remote!

    Now, I'm going to reveal my "about" age. Love Andy Griffith and can almost recite them word for word, I Love Lucy, and any show about wild animals. I have to admit that I think the new shows are not worth turning on the tv for. I do like Soul Man and The Exes, but still prefer something I can watch with my grandson.

    Doc Martin (all reruns now but worth watching over and over and over), Foyle's War, California Gold, and lots of other shows on PBS, The Good Wife, Parenthood, Revenge, Big Bang Theory. I miss the original Law and Order, watching reruns there too. Still watching MASH reruns too.

    Huge fan of Andy Griffith, I started watching them on netflix streaming last spring from episode 1 on. If I happen to be watching when my 16 1/2 yr old son is around he'll actually watch an episode (wouldn't admit it, of course!). Still a lot of good solid life lessons to be found in that great show. I can't believe some of the trash that's on these days.

    I think American Pickers had their first new show of the season this past Monday night.
    Not sure about the other two shows. Watch them too, but did pay attention this week.

    Anything Law and Order, Criminal Minds, NCIS - both versions; have discovered British crime shows on Blue Ray and love them! Major Crimes is really growing on me - I was disappointed when they took Brenda out of the mix and changed the show, but I like it now. Project Runway and Dance Moms. Grim when I remember it. Dexter rules. Basically I really like cop shows. Burn Notice grew on me - couldn't stand it at first. But mostly they play in the background and I sew - I record them and watch later. Homeland is pretty good too. And there are a couple that I can't remember the names of that if I happen to see them in the channel line up I'll watch. TV junkie falls in right after sewing junkie! LOL

    I totally agree! I can't quite figure out HGTV's seasons. Seems they mix reruns in with the new episodes. I started watching their new "Buying & Selling" (w/the Property Brothers).....saw 3 episodes and then a rerun! Go figure.

    Me too. As soon as I saw Starbuck was a girl I couldn't get into it. I had the biggest teenage crush on Dirk Benedict.

    We only have broadcast tv, (I'm too cheap to pay for television) I watched the premiere of Arrow, looks promising. He's a little too violent so I may change my opinion. I watch a lot of PBS too. We're lucky that we get 5 PBS channels, then we also get 4 international ones, RT, NHK etc.

    I've been catching up on the Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures on Amazon Prime.

    I am looking forward to Gold Rush, love Survivor. I don't see any shows on the broadcast channels that I would really watch, except Survivor. We have On Demand and I can watch my shows when I want to. I love Project Runway and Dance Moms!!!!!! Do you ever want to pop someone good? Watch Bridezilla. I watch it once in a blue moon and honest to Heaven if I was one of those "girls" and I was a guy, I would be so long gone!!!!!!! I love watching the History Channel and National Geographic channel. Alaska State Troopers is fun to watch too! I am waiting for Top Shot to come on. Otherwise I just listen to my books and sew. Except Football. I love football! Specially our Minnesota Vikings!!!!! I save my binding time and hand work time for the Vikings. Edie

    NCIS and NCIS LA,any well written crime show with good characters. Law and Order (reruns) Yukon Men, History, Discovery, FOX news (esp. Brett Baier). PBS for some of their BBC shows. Waiting for season 2 of Downton Abbey. Only watch network for local/state news. Gave up on Jersey Wives...just too much. Unbelievable. Some Food network like Restaurant Impossible but NOT cooking shows. Chopped is OK. Waiting for Mountain Men to come back on.....they are not hunks but seem to be real people..my kind of people. I find the current comedy shows to be stupid and offensive and demeaning...esp. in the portrayal of men.

    I watch NCIS and NCIS LOS ANGELES, Major Crimes, Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, like HGTV Property Brothers, Yard Crashers and the Food Network. Hate the reality survivor junk and most of the sitcoms are not my cup of tea. Guess it would be a pretty boring world if we all liked the same things. I like the Hallmark Channel for their movies.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
