This thread seems to have enough traction that it should be the first TV board sticky.

I'm about to watch episode 6 of rom The Earth to the Moon - the actual moon landing episode

Also, just started X-Files Season 7, and hopefully buying Burn Notice season 3 very soon.

A couple months ago, I added two Richard Chamberlain mini-series to my Netflix queue.  I found SHOGUN to be so sluggish I couldn't get past the first disc; THE THORN BIRDS has been lingering since and, due to me not managing my queue well, showed up at my house yesterday.  So I gave it a shot.

Jeez, TV drama of the era was slow.  I tried watching this once before, years ago, and found that once Barbara Stanwyck's character dies, the series becomes tedious.  My reaction was the same this time around.  No interest in going past disc one.

Disc 2 of Season 2 of BIG BANG THEORY, which is a show I've discovered via DVD at the prodding of several friends.  I really enjoy the show quite a bit!

Not sure which disc I had in last precisely. My wife and I have just started watching The Wire Season 1 and Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 1. Bouncing back and forth between 'em.

Zeroman: The Complete Series, Discs 1 & 2: Saw this on Netflix and looked interesting, mostly because Ryan Reynolds name was attached. Turns out it was a series produced in Canada and Leslie Nielson is the voice of Zeroman, which is basically Nielson's same bumbling character he plays in every movie with a super suit. Ryan Reynold is the voice of a supporting character. Quirky is one way to describe it. Kind of hard to pin down what kind of audience they were shooting for on this one.

Chappelle Show, Season 2, Disc 1 & 2 - Kind of glad this show ended when it did because it would have been all down hill. Once again, way funnier than I was expecting.

I just re-watched the documentary series "The Day the Universe Changed" yesterday, and man, is it great!  I've seen it 6 or 7 times, and I never get tired of it---it's so insightful.  I noticed something interesting yesterday...this doc seems to have become the template for many docs to follow, what with its conversational tone, re-enactments, humorous segues, and so on.  Wonderful series, available on 5 discs.

Disc 6 of Battlestar Galactica Season 3. I watch an episode every other day while doing my treadmill workout. One episode left and then it's on to the final season.

Agree on the awesomeness of Breaking Bad. Season 3 was the best yet.

Soul Eater, Part 2, Discs 1 & 2 - Despite it's name, it is a very fun anime series. My daughter and I watch it together.

First couple of episodes of the first season of Monk.

I've only seen one episode before, where he tries to loosen up for most of the show (maybe he got hit in the head? that is usually what leads to "complete personality switch"), so this was my first real time seeing the show.

Great premise, executed well here.

Corner Gas is great---I discovered the series about 2 years ago, and I'm hooked.

THE LUCY SHOW, season two, disc one.  This is the first season of any Lucy series filmed in color and, like so many other series of the era, the colors are garish and eye-straining.  (Interesting that when the movies and, 20 years later, TV, made the switch to color, both mediums completely overdid it at first.)

In color, Lucy's shenanigans become almost surreal.  Dressing in male-drag became in an increasingly large part of her comedic schtick -- but she continued to wear full make-up.  And so we get Lucy, in blue eye shadow, false eye lashes, and red lipstick, disguised as a construction worker, and no other character notices.  She worked better in B&W.

Revisiting Reilly, Ace of Spies and Rumpole of the Bailey (Season 1), sharing both with my teenagers. Strong writing and solid acting never go out of style.
