Clearly, I watch way too much TV. Correspondingly, I don't spend nearly enough time gaming. It's difficult to say which is cause and which is effect, but either way it is wholly unsatisfactory.

Because I have so much time on my hands, I thought I would submit my first ever GeekList.

This one consists of shows I watch when I'm not gaming; which is far too often. I've only listed current shows here as reruns would just be passè, and I tend not to watch old stuff anyway. Heck, just managing to squeeze all this squeeze in is a challenge! Thank the Lord for TIVO!

Let me know what you think of the list. I hope at the least you find it amusing. Maybe it even turns you on to some shows you don't normally watch. Feel free to add shows that steal away from your gaming activity.

Of the games I've listed below, I've only played two--Outdoor Survival and Chuck-A-Luck. I can't say either was a great experience although Chuck-A-Luck was profitable. Feel free to rave on the games or shows, how much they suck or how right I am about them...I never get tired of hearing that.

Cheers!

...Yvonne Strahovski

Think Craps with three dice; also called Hazard. I remember as a kid, a buddy and I would go dumpster diving to find addditions to our beer can collections. One day we found this cool wooden box and a stretch of green felt. I had been reading Hoyles Rules of Games and had the idea to make a Hazard game. All the neighbor kids came and as the "House" I cleaned up--until I got into trouble.

Oh, the relevant show here is "Chuck." One of the best shows on TV right now and LOL funny. The perfect mix of comedy, drama, and action. Not to mention that Agent Sarah Walker is smokin' hot. Chuck is tied for my favorite TV show with...

Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest sitcoms to come along in a long time. Jim Parsons' portrayal of Sheldon is Emmy-worthy and how does this show NOT appeal to the geek in all of us? I know it appeals to the gamer in us. Who hasn't already played a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock or Secret Agent Laser Obstacle Chess in their game group? And finally, who isn't cuckoo for Cuoco puffs?

Hey, this game has an average rating of 7.00! What's up with that?

I dunno, are you? We don't know who the "Mother" is yet, and we may never know, but I don't care. How I Met Your Mother is another LOL funny show and rounds out my top 3. Cobie Smulders smolders as Robin and is the new Jennifer Anniston/Rachel in what is essentially Friends redux. But Robin isn't the reason I watch this one, it's all about Barney. He just cracks me up. Who wouldn't want a wing man like Barney?

And now the rest, in no particular order starting with...Desperate Housewives. I'm almost embarrassed to admit my indulgence in this soapy affair, but the subtle, dark humor keeps me coming back. It wouldn't bother me terribly if this show ran it's course and ended as I think most of the characters have worn thin, but I'm hooked, I'm hooked, my brain is cooked.

BTW, Eva was just recently named the sexiest woman on TV. Some might argue the point, but there's no arguing Gabby's easy on the eyes!

If you haven't watched it you are missing political correctness going down the drain as they perpetuate just about every single stereotype there is and then turn it on it's head; all the while making you laugh. Jaime Pressley is a hoot as white trailer trash Joy, heaving insults at anyone who comes in range.

And who knew Karma was such a simple concept?

All the ladies on Dancing with the Stars are gorgeous, but Cheryl and Julliane are my favorites. I hope they go all the way... But believe it or not, this one's not about the girls. My wife and I used to dance and teach professionally so this was a must watch for us. The "judging" is atrocious, but America always seem to get it right in the end. Samantha Harris is extremely annoying, the music the producers pick for contestants and their arrangements are often terrible, but we enjoy the dancing, costumes and Tom Bergeron's snarky comments.

BTW, how can there be no picture for this game, no owners, no nothing? Does this game even exist? Who posted it to the Geek?

I've been a fan of Eliza since her Buffy days; I think it's her voice, yeah that's it. Dollhouse is a new show, and the jury is still out, but I've always been drawn to shows with a sci-fi, supernatural, weird science underpinning. So far this one is shaping up as fairly interesting although I think the acting is subpar and over-the-top across the board. It's hard to tear away from a mystery and I was disappointed Tru Calling was cancelled so quickly. Hopefully Dollhouse fares better.

BTW, who thinks this picture's been airbrushed?

What up Dawg? What did you expect? A pic of Paula Abdul? Puhleese... Carrie is my favorite winner but Paula, oh gosh Paula. Can we get rid of her? Kara DioGuardi was not a great addition to the show. Randy is nearly as annoying as Paula. While Simon can be a jerk sometimes, he's consistently right and consistently tells it like it is. I hate the judging, the scoring (DWTS is much better with split scoring), the group numbers, mentors who don't mentor, and the endless commercials. However, I was glad to see they scaled way back on the crap auditions this year and really enjoy watching these young singers try to make their way.

At least with American Idol and DWTS you have a reality show/competition that has some element of talent other than how big an a** you can make of yourself in front of a nationwide audience.

Who doesn't love Kelly Bundy? Christina Applegate may be the best comedic actress in this bunch and Samantha Who? is another standout sitcom. It's wonderful to watch the shallow and materialistic Andrea play off the altruistic Dina and Applegate's Sam trying to find her way. A wacky mom and dad complete the comic recipe. Strongly recommended.

Hmmm...I'm beginning to see a trend here. I know what you're thinking and no, my viewing habits AREN'T all about the girls........Really..........I swear.

I'm not sure Heroes is improving or heading in a good direction, but it has that supernatural flair and background conspiracy again that I just love. I'm not sure constantly blurring the lines between who is good or bad is all that necessary. I think I'd be just as happy with an old-fashioned good vs. evil plotline without all the flip-flopping. Let's leave that to the politicians, shall we?

The trouble with shows like this is that favorite characters have to die periodically. As long as they're your favorites and not mine, I'm good with that.

No, no. Ana Torv doesn't do it for me. In my opinion Dr. Walter Bishop is the star of this show and I have to say, Joshua Jackson does a credible job as his son Peter even though I couldn't stand him before this point and especially in Dawson's Creek (gag). Here's another weird science and dark conspiracy show I so enjoy and in it's first season it has really sunk it's hooks in me.

BTW, what the heck happend to Blair Brown between Continental Divide (good movie, check it out) with John Belushi, and Fringe? I loved her then. Aging sucks...

Sure, this is essentially an X-Files ripoff (another of my all time favorites), and many of the plotlines have been stolen directly from old X-Files episodes. But what on TV is really new?

I know what I'm about to say next is going to offend many fans, and generate a firestorm of controversy, but everything moves in cycles and let's be honest, Jack Bauer IS the new Chuck Norris. Hey, I didn't say which fans I would be offending! Sure Chuck is real and Jack isn't, and you have to wrap your mind around the idea Jack can get from one side of L.A. to the other in just five minutes--in traffic, but it's a fun ride.

Now, let's swing that satellite around and download the imagery to my cellphone PRONTO!

...Lost

Really like this show for reasons you can guess by now. If you were to try and dive in now, you truly would be lost, so best to rent previous seasons to catch up--worth every penny! While I'm sad it's ending it's run after two more seasons and only 32 more episodes (after this season), it's really kinda cool that they know when it will all end and can build to that. How many shows get the axe and then have to scramble to tie up loose ends in a less than staisfactory finale?

There's such a large cast on this one, it's hard to pick a favorite, but Michael Emerson's Benjamin Linus is a real enigma, isn't he? Creepy in a good way if that makes any sense. I still don't know if he's the bad guy or the good guy, but I don't care either.

I'll wrap this post with a familiar tag line...because I can...and because I like it...

The trouble with shows like this is that favorite characters have to die periodically. As long as they're your favorites and not mine, I'm good with that.

...Breaking Bad on AMC

Not sure how to describe this one really....a dramedy? When I first read about this show, it didn't sound like my cup of tea. But the critics kept raving and with it's offbeat premise I decided to check it out. This is a strange one and really pushes the envelope. The humor is very dark and the show is kinda slow-moving and boring, but I can't wait to see what happens next. Bryan Cranston is his usual excellent self.

This is probably the one show on here people know the least about, so to summarize quickly, a high school chemistry teacher learns he has terminal brain cancer and has done little to provide for his family. So to provide them something after he's gone, he decides to enter the crystal meth market, and given his background--he's quickly the best in town. He partners with a young hood, and their exchanges are often hilarious as they try to reconcile their two worlds--responsible drug-maker and carelss gangsta. Oh, and his brother-in-law is a DEA agent.

Make sure you rent the first season (only six epps) if you decide to dive in here...

...Prison Break

I am really ready for this one to be over, and thankfully, it only has a few more shows before it's run it's course. It will be interesting to see how they wrap up the conspiracy, but this has gotten just plain silly, and not in a fun way. Like 24, this is one of those shows that you watch the first season and wonder how they will "keep it up" year after year. Apparently 24 managed better then Prison Break since I will be bidding it adieu none too soon. I do think William Fichtner is terrific and hope he moves on to something successful. Robert Knepper as T-Bag is one of the creepiest, sleaziest, slimiest, most psychotic, unstable whack jobs ever.

Note to self: Avoid future shows featuring one-dimensional actors like Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, and Michael Rapaport.

...Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel.

I'm not sure how we got started on this one. I think I read something about the show and decided to check it out. At any rate, this is a "bonding" show for my son and I. He loves watching it with me and dragging my wife to the screen anytime Bear is about to eat something nasty. It is tending to the same-same however and I'm glad my son seems to be growing out of it, or at least not missing it like he used to.

BTW, did you know Bear has a son named...wait for it...Marmaduke? Those crazy Brits. I also used to own this game...twice. What was I thinking?

This is one I can do without, but my mistake was exposing my son to this at an early age. And then, since we lived fairly close, we took him to Digger's Dungeon (http://www.gravedigger.com/dungeon) . Still, it's good bonding time and I have to admit that except for the knucklehead fan scoring system they have, it's good fun to watch the freestyle events.

Now, if I can just get my hands on the XBox version...

Today, we're all Spaniards!

Foyle's War.



My current favorite. I'm enjoying Michael Kitchen and the rest of the players very much. For those of you not aware of the series, it concerns small police department in England during WW2. Detective Chief Superintendant Foyle and his team investigate crimes during the war years.

Why should you watch this?

It starts in 1939, and exposes you to a historically accurate British experience during WW2. Great pains have been taken to recreate the era, and you can learn a lot of history just by watching. The series is chrono-centric, which is a word I just made up. Time advances during the series, and the cast's reaction to events of the war makes for interesting watching. They're up to season 5 I believe, and it's available on DVD and Netflix.

By all means - START FROM THE BEGINNING. You'll miss out terribly if you don't. Each episode links together in at least a small way.

Issues dealt with in the series:

Blackmarket
Rationing
Sending kids out to the country for safety
Aluminum drives for aircraft metal
Animosity towards Germans residing in UK
Lend / Lease
Homosexuality in the military
US bases on UK soil. (Ugly Americans)
Disabled vets returning home.
Military experimentation with anthrax
Looting bombing victims

Highly recommended.

The Wire
5 seasons of wonderful drama centred around the drugs war in baltimore. Realistic to a fault, dense and full of dialogue making it far from the normal escapism found in us dramas. Written for people who are willing to give time to the program, not for your 'average viewer'.
I also really like that this was written as 5 seasons, and unlike lost or bsg was not made up as they went along. Stories arc across each season, and across all 5 seasons. There are not really any morally unambiguous characters, but it's not even like there are bad people doing good things.. characters may have used to have been black/white (evil/good) and more recently become shades of grey.. the wire's characters (barring McNulty) are in glorious technicolour.
just started this week on bbc2 for those in the uk.
