Oddly enough, the only TV I miss here in France (where I only get CNN International, BBC, and SkyNews- a UK news service, in English) is the shows on the History Channel, A&E, and TLC. I guess that shows how pitiful network TV has become.

Damn -- Has it taken you this long to realize there's not a decent program on the TV? You're slow my friend. I ain't watched TV in I don't know when.

And the networks wonder where their viewers have gone... I'd rather watch American Choppers, Monster Garage, or any of the learning / history / animal / geography / bio channels any day... screw it, just turn on the radio and listen to Sean Hannity from 7pm till 10pm, then watch The Simpsons on Fox, Futurama on the Cartoon Channel, Law & Order reruns and pass out around midnight!

La Femme Nikita was the last show I spent time with. Now it's Fox News, Cable Sports, Maybe an old movie. That's all she wrote! All this crap de jure is mondo depresso!

I hear you! And since I don't subscribe to cable reality shows are it. But summer is here. Plus I started a trial with Netflix. Finishing up the final season of SATC, watched Donny Darko last night, more on the way...

John - I was just holding it in, trying not to bitch unnecessarily. Occupying my time here, at work, with novels or Fox News.

But this week...I just wanted some decent programming...Is that so much to ask?? :-P

And right you are Willie; those are indeed the only options available.

Rob - tell me it ain't so...Are you hooked on soaps?

"Firefly", the entire series (1 season) is out on DVD.

Best show to come along in ages and they cancel it after 1 season. BUT, I hear htey're making a movie nas we speak.

Well, if you get showtime (or have a good broadband and watch the net tv option on winamp) there is always "Penn and Teller's Bullshit!". They harpoon everything from fortune tellers to environmentalists. Nothing is safe. and for about a half hour show it's not bad at all.
Otherwise its the history channel (Mail Call), AMC, or selected sports.
