Kinda interesting to read everyone else's lists. I've heard of most of those shows but don't watch any, really.
I'm so not a tv watcher. Most of the year I'll watch approximately zero hours of tv a week. But somehow I got sucked in to five shows this fall:
The Amazing Race (I've been a longtime watcher)
Revolution (see post-quote below)
I have fallen hard for Arrow. Like, I'll-catch-the-rerun-on-Sunday hard. It's got that whole superhero vibe that I love so much in movies and stuff.
And I've been surprised at how much I like Elementary. I am a HUGE fan of BBC's Sherlock, so wasn't sure how I'd like this one. I actually find it really helps for me to not think of him as Sherlock Holmes, but see him as his own character/story.
I've got the DVD set of Firefly and have started watching it one episode a week on one of my free nights. My sister's been pushing me to watch it for years, so finally borrowed it.

I only got through the first two episodes. I intended to stick with it until after the first 4 which were made all at the same time so I expected they would all suffer from small budget issues but...but I just couldn't do it. It's so terrible.
Haha. I'm not usually one to bail on a show or movie once I've started watching because I can't stand that feeling of not knowing how it ends, even if I'm not that into it... but I'm so close to bailing on this one. Less because of details like walking across the Midwest in a day or being extraordinarily clean and more just that... the plot's kinda slow and I feel no real connection to any of the characters. The ones I'm most interested in are Miles, mostly because he's pretty bad-ass with a sword/fight, the brother Danny, mostly because he's cute, and teen spy guy, also because he's cute and clearly conflicted about his role. And at the point that I realized that I was watching because of superficial I-just-like-to-watch-the-guys reasons, I started to question whether it was really the best use of my time. We'll see. It's too bad, it had a lot of potential.
