    Warning, the drop off after that season is severe enough to make you reach for the memory bleach.

    I don't watch a lot of non-sports or non-news TV, but the two shows I watch are Person Of Interest and Scorpion.

    I only watched the first ep. of Scorpion, and all I could imagine was some network suits throwing out high concept pitches, and one guy blurting out, "I know, how about Big Bang Theory A-Team?"

    Should I give it another chance?

    I grumble about it while watching, though.

    my wife and me: Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda & Bates Motel
    My wife: The Young and the Restless. I try to stay out of the room when she watches that cause if I'm there I do impromptu satire of whatever scene is on. that leads to conflict.

    but Kenda and Bates only on YT when they have full shows of seasons we haven't seen.

    If you mean my current favorite rather than favorites of current shows, then I have to add reruns of The Honeymooners & Dobie Gillis

    My son's been watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphi, and I sometimes watch with him. That show is crazy! Anyone know where those three guys came from?

    Oh, god-my wife watches all of that 'reality' crap and then some. People arguing about tattoos, hairdos, food; men trying on dresses, dance moms. Kill me now.

    I'm still wading my way through Breaking Bad. Will be finishing up Season Four tonight and I've got Season 5 on stand-by. I'll get to this one after I'm done...

    I don't watch any Network TV series at all. I also don't have Netflix or its kind either. I actually watch BluRay versions of series we get out of the library, which is why I'm a little behind.

    I'm looking forward to Season 4 of Game Of Thrones, that I will actually purchase...

    Reality TV is all I DVR.

    I watch reruns of The Big Bang Theory. Other than that, I grew tired of sitcoms. I want to get into Modern Family (I have the first 3 seasons on DVD) but I am very annoyed by the use of non-stationary cameras. I hated its use in the movie Private Ryan (headache-ville) and am tired of it used since then as an effect in television.

    We just finished up the season finale of The Librarians. It's one of those series that you're better off trying not to figure out and just go with it.

    Librarians is way better than the TV movies. We're liking it. And Blacklist is pretty good, though I'm still waiting for it to really hit high gear. Mythbusters is still great. Agents Of S.H.E.I.L.D. has improved a hell of a lot over the first shows.

    As I have said before, I think we are living in the golden age of TV drama. Current (or upcoming) shows that I watch (mostly DVR):

    Mad Men: Final episodes coming up this Spring

    Game Of Thrones: Outstanding television.

    Orange Is The New Black: We actually just started watching this on Netflix.

    Survivor: The wife and I have watched every year.

    American Horror Story: This one has slipped a bit, but still high quality acting and writing for the most part.

    True Detective: On hiatus until next summer.

    The Leftovers: On hiatus until next summer.

    Deadliest Catch: Back in April

    Celebrity Apprentice: My guilty pleasure show.

    We watched Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. last season and I lost interest as it got to weird. We are really enjoying Agent Carter as it is nothing like SHIELD.
