Sci-Fi Fodder

My Current Show List

I can't deny it - my TV viewing schedule has decreased this season. Sure, I still probably watch more than the average American, but kids T-Ball games and dance classes have really cut into my time (and that nasty World of Warcraft habit isn't helping).

Since I have been fairly ruthless in my cuts, I thought I would see if anyone had a show that I really need to be watching. So, here's my current list:


  • Supernatural
  • Dollhouse
  • Flash Forward
  • Castle (not sci-fi...but anything with Fillion is cool)

Yep! That's it! I am only 'appointment' watching these shows. I still consider "Supernatural" the cream of the crop on television today. "Castle" is actually pretty amusing, although in no way Sci-Fi.

Will be Watching

  • Chuck
  • Lost
  • Doctor Who
  • V
  • Eureka
  • Warehouse 13

You knew that I had a backlog of shows to watch, right? I do think the networks are swinging away from Sci-Fi right now, so there just are not as many shows out there. I am really looking forward to "V", even with the change to make it more mini-series-like. It looks really solid. The same goes for the next season of "Doctor Who".

Following (i.e. catching bits and pieces, but not really on my must see list)

  • Heroes
  • Fringe
  • The Vampire Diaries
  • Sanctuary

Sigh...poor "Heroes". Devolving into lesbian kisses for ratings - with no previous plot to support the move. It's typical of "Heroes" writing. They have an idea and they run with it, with no thought to continuity.

I may have jumped the gun in dropping "Fringe" from my regular viewing schedule. It looks like it has improved from the initial episodes that I watched.

"The Vampire Diaries" shows a little bit of promise, but overall, it is simply filler. My wife likes it, so it stays on the TiVo.

Not Watching

  • Smallville
  • Stargate Universe
  • Eastwick (really bad)
  • Ghost Whisperer
  • Medium

I dropped "Smallville" years ago. For me, it's just not a Superman story. I have to note that "Eastwick" is not long for the air - its really pretty horrible.

So, that is my entire list. Is there anything that I am totally missing out on here?
