Suggestions? I have no idea what you've seen, but a few of my favorites are Buffy, Firefly, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Castle, Nikita, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Bones, Criminal Minds, True Blood... and then I start getting into anime, haha. Oh, and Once Upon a Time and Hart of Dixie :)

Kind of depends on what type of show(s) you're looking for, of course.

I kept thinking "There's more to add. I know this." So thanks for reminding me of Once Upon A Time and such. I'll put them in.

Anything is a good choice, really. Most of the to buy list is genre as you can see, but I am open to non genre, too. (Gossip Girl has become a guilty pleasure. I love Leighton Meester.)

Otherwise, yeah, any good show, sling it my way and I'll put it on the list. I figure if I don't like it in a couple episodes, I can always move on down the road, you know?

Well, anything Joss Whedon will always be at the top of my list. I fell hard for Sherlock recently. Rewatching series 1 on Netflix as I type, haha. And Nikita is my current addiction <3

But everything on that list I adore.

I like the idea of cherry picking shows I want to own. The watch list can turn into the buy list over time.

I already have all of Supernatural (duh), all of Psych, and one season of the Vampire Diaries.

I've seen a couple episodes of Firefly, but wanna put enough distance between friend that explained it to me and trying it again as I can. It really sucked trying to stay awake at 3 AM with a pause button being hit every five minutes to tell me who and what was going on. Gah.

I just know I don't usually watch many shows live cause I kill them. (I single handedly killed Life on Mars. I swear). And so, after they've had many seasons or wrap I go back and get into them. It's just easier than nail biting constantly will it get season 2? 3?

Firefly is fantastic. You watch it in the correct order and there shouldn't be any need for explanation. Joss Whedon writes the best dialogue, I swear. Such a wonderful cast. Deserved more than one season and a movie--stupid Fox.

And I think you're missing out on some really enjoyable shows by not watching live. There's some really great stuff on TV right now.

That's just it. We were watching it in order. She paused it constantly to tell me who was what and why and such. I probably would have put it together all on my own, but no.

I typically watch SPN, TVD live. I've picked up Ringer live as much as possible. I also run into some time constraints at times that mess with live viewing.

I blame football for not getting into Once Upon a Time, for example. Bad night for me and then it's so far into its season that well....you know.

Well that's just silly. Firefly is smart, sure, but doesn't need that kind of explanation. It was broadcast out of order which is a big reason it flopped in the ratings, but when watching it in the intended order, it's fine.

I watch Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie, and Castle on Mondays (and now Smash the next day), Glee on Tuesdays (meh; it's a wreck I can't look away from), Criminal Minds on Wednesdays, TVD and Bones (once it returns) on Thursdays, Nikita and SPN on Fridays, and Once on Sundays. Lots o' TV, haha.

Baseball season is going to screw this all to hell though ;)

They aired Firefly out of order in its first run? WHY? That makes no sense.

Yeah. Baseball season is another thing that's gonna rip any watching to shreds, too. Sigh.

Yeah, it made no sense whatsoever...it's my guess that they really didn't want a sci-fi show, and wanted it to die as soon as possible so they could put some crappy sitcom or reality tv thing on...And now, in spite of it...or maybe because of it, Firefly has become another cult favorite.

I dont' get to watch a lot of primetime stuff, due to my work schedule, but if I might suggest, Sanctuary is a worthwhile watch too.

That's just plain stupid. Genre shows often get treated like the redheaded step child. It makes no sense because often genre fans are the most loyal to a program. Sure, audiences might be small compared to a sitcom overall, but for the dedication in that small following? It's mighty!

I will certainly have to check it out sooner rather than later.

Most of this list is for POST novel---and before I dive into the second one.

I've heard of Sanctuary, but never checked it out. Isn't that usually paired with Warehouse 13 on Syfy??

It was, but warehouse 13 is on hiatus, I think. Sanctuary is on, but in reruns. The neat thing is that both of those shows have webisodes, and full episodes you can watch online on (and gods, I hate the new branding...Still think that syfy sounds like euroslang for a social disease!) syfy.com .

Ah. Cool. I'll have to put it into the mix when I get around to it for sure. I've heard good things about both shows.
