I don't watch much TV, but I happen to enjoy "Castle" and "Once Upon a Time".

Lets be kind to one another.

I am absolutely addicted to PBS' Masterpiece, DOWNTON ABBEY. I watched both seasons back-to-back and am now in limbo until the 3rd season begins. I love it. Netflix has season one on instant streaming, season two will probably be added soon. Can't remember if Hulu has it already. Watching that made me look up other Masterpiece selections I missed before retiremenbt, earning just enough to assemble a stash. I watched season one of THE FORSYTE SAGA, and liked it very much, even to order season two on Amazon. There are several more I am going to pursue when finished with that. (Minh, I notice the same pattern, lots of British shows. Maybe they are a tad slower paced, and more condusive to knitting???)

Downtown Abbey. Just wish it was longer! :-D Can't stand that we have to wait until 2013 for the next installment! gaaah.

I don't watch alot of regular TV, but I'm really enjoying "Smash" on NBC. It's a behind-the-scenes drama about Broadway starring Deborah Messing, Christian Borle, Jack Davenport (dahyum is he good looking :-D ), Anjelica Huston and Katherine McPhee, and I am thoroughly entertained by it.

Also enjoyed The Walking Dead, but I haven't watched that in a while. May have to get back to it.

Hubby and I like "Lost Girl" on SyFy. It's in it's first season here in the USA, but second or third in Canada. I like the comedy "New Girl" starring Zooey Deschanel, on Fox, too. And for a while I watched "Smash" on NBC for the really good acting, singing and musical numbers, but it's on at the same time as "Lost Girl." Fortunately, whole episodes can be watched on the Internet.

Another Brit show to add: Hustle. Unfortunately only 4 seasons are available in the US, the rest are UK only. But it is BRILLIANT and if you loved Leverage, you'll love HUSTLE!

Hi Minh - I'll toss in my favorites: Burn Notice (USA network, past seasons on netflix, current seasons stream on hulu with time delay). I have knitted through many hours of How I Met Your Mother, and Samantha Who? (both netflix). Both are really funny and you will recognize the characters. I also watch Castle, Bones, Modern Family, and the Middle on hulu. Did you catch Chuck? So good! Finally, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report are often laugh-out-loud funny.

Taking simple patterns and complicating them...
