We got hooked on Spike reruns last year. It's even better now that we've upgraded our equipment to high-def and added network channels to our lineup.

Have you seen Bones? That is one of my favorite shows on the air right now. It is still using forensics to solve murders, but there is a lot more character development than on CSI. And it's fun for me to see David Boreanas on tv. [Big Grin] [evil]

I caught a few minutes of one episode. Mrs. Club has seen more and doesn't like it much, so I haven't had a chance to get a feel for it. Maybe I'll excercise the DVR option on your advice [Smile]

I'm all for IT Crowd! I'm dying to see season 2, doesn't seem to be anywhere online (yet). I didn't know about the subtitles.

I also love MST3k and Red Dwarf. Probably don't have to be a geek to love the latter haha.

Another vote for Firefly [Smile]

I'm currently rather hooked on Bones at the moment though.

I wish Firefly had lasted longer. Sometimes I sing the theme song in the shower. It seemed like the characters and relationships were just starting to solidify when it ended, and then it felt like Serenity rushed through the story to fit it all in. (They were both really good anyway.)

Stupid TV execs.

BtVS was my favourite, Angel was good too, I love The OC , but it's not a geek TV serie probably, altough one of its main characters was geeky (seth).
Actually I learned the word "geek" from The OC.

Not a TV series as such, but this geeky comedy trio have a regular spot on an aussie TV comedy show.

Firefly! (Altho I got into it after it got cancelled :-p)

And recently, watched the first episode of season 1 of Farscape and thought it was kinda neat! Just need to find time to watch the rest!

Otherwise, haven't really kept up with what's currently on these days, but do catch the occasional snippet from some shows.

Good show. I don't have a complete collection, but I have most of the series on DVD, particularly all the major events.

For all-time fave, I think I have to go with Babylon 5. (And it was a shame about B5: Crusade. Bad Ted Turner, bad! Bad!) And of course Star Trek: TOS is an absolute classic.

More recently, is anyone else following the Stargates? (SG-1 and Atlantis) or how about Battlestar Galactica? (The new one, not the old one. Although the old one is kinda fun, in an Ed Wood Jr. sort of way.)

<offtopic>
If you enjoy Bones (and even if you don't) you might (or might not) enjoy Kathy Reichs' novels. Reichs really is a forensic anthropologist, and most of the literary Temperance Brennan's adventures are loosly based on Reichs' own professional cases. Both Reichs and (lit) Brennan divide their time between Charlotte NC and Montreal QC, and you can usually guess from the title in which city the story will be set.

Kirk, Bones, and Spock. C'mon now. It was made over 15 years before I was born and is still good TV.

Oh yeah Star Trek would be one of my top 10. Did you hear about the new Star Trek Movie coming out. Matt Damin out of all people is going to play young Captain Kirk. I could have chosen a better young cap Kirk.

I also would say Twilight Zone

MythBusters
X-Files
House
CSI

And I don't know if it is ok to mention online shows but I would have to say the source is probably my favorite online show.

Yeah, Riptide - That was the title! IIRC, they also had a cigarette boat named Ebb Tide, and in one episode the Geek had one of those Heathkit robots that tried to make margaritas and kept spraying the cabin with them.

That series wasn't on very long, was it? [blush]

I've picked up Kathy Reichs' novels since watching the show. I've finished the first 3 Temperance Brennan novels and I'm almost finished with Fatal Voyage, the fourth. It's a very different Tempe, but I really like them. And it's very fun that I understand almost all of the French before she translates it.

Oh I really love The Big Bang Theory! It's my favourite show right now. And usually I'm not watching any TV series...

Okay, well. Exceptions: Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica...

But lately, I've really gotten into Geek TV Shows like Freaks & Geeks, The Big Bang Theory and The IT Crowd. Are there any shows similar to those I mentioned?

Sorry for my bad English. I'm just a Swiss guy who learns English by watching TV shows (English in school is nearly worthless) [Razz]

This is the moment which I call epiphany. First we recognise that the object is one integral thing, then we recognise that it is an organised composite structure, a thing in fact: finally, when the relation of the parts is exquisite, when the parts are adjusted to the special point, we recognise that it is that thing which it is. Its soul, its whatness, leaps to us from the vestment of its appearance. The soul of the commonest object, the structure of which is so adjusted, seems to us radiant. The object achieves its epiphany. - James Joyce
