I am currently hooked on Lost, Heroes, Prison Break, Frascape and Stargate SG1. But especially Heroes and Prison Break.

Anyone else like these ones or have any good shows to suggest? Prefferably on DVD as I don't have cable or any channels.

    It wouldn't be irresponsible of me to edit your post to say, "I'm a complete frakking moron and Jeff is way better than me," would it?

    24 baby, all day long. Angel was pretty good too, or at least I liked it more than Buffy.

    Angel was good till they switched from the WB and screwed it all up.

    And 24 I've only seen the first season of. And while it was good it was frustrating... very frustrating.

    What, <span class="spoiler">you didn't like when they started working for their sworn enemies and landed in multiple silly situations?</span> Yeah, that wasn't that great.

    Oh yeah, I forgot The Office. That starts back up in two weeks, so that'll be nice. I haven't seen the British version myself, but I find this one to be very funny.

    The office is pretty funny but i've never been into long running comedies that much

    The British Office is hella funny. Ricky Gervais is just phenominal in it. He's also great in Extras when it was still on HBO.

    I like Lost, but don't know if I'll pick it up when it starts again. ?Depends on other family members this time. ?It's good, then it's bad, then it's good again...

    And it's the only non-animated television series I've been hooked on for at least five years. ?So I can't recommend any others.

    If it follows the pattern, Season 3 will be out soon on DVD.

    I forgot how utterly awesome it is!

    Has anyone seen the show, "Chuck"?

    Nerd (As the hero) + Secret Agents + Hot Chick + NSA/FBI + Over-the-top action + Conspiracy (Plotline) + Comedy = WIN

    I also like the generic names they chose for best buy/geek squad (Buy More//Nerd Herd) and Sam's Club (Large Mart).

    Dude, I just saw that show today on USA, and it was awesome. It was just absurd enough without going overboard, and it made for a really good show. I'll be keeping my eye on it.

    Same goes for Life, which was on right after that. Guy gets falsely imprisoned for nearly beating an inmate to death and gets out something over 10 years later and has no idea how technology works. Had some great moments with phones and stuff. Good for NBC actually getting stable (or at least hopefully stable) programming after Friends and Will & Grace died.

    Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, House, N.C.I.S., Simpsons... ah can't think of any more. They are really good TV shows, 3 out of the 6 are fantasy... but still.

    Assuming we're not counting The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, House is the only TV series I watch these days.

    I started watching Prison Break again, mainly for the fact that it has something to do with breaking out of prison now. Or at least will for maybe one or two more episodes. I still think the fact that they just popped the guy back in prison was sort of uninspired though.

    So Heroes season II is awesome so far. Also everyone needs to check out a show called "Jericho" its a post-apocalyptic America show... badass.
