I like Battlestar Galactica too. But I watch it as political and social satire. Are those Cylons really neo-cons, or no?
. HGTV is oftentimes on as background noise in the evening. DW reads and sometimes glances up to see the finished living room on the tele. I'm more process oriented so I watch Tanya's mammies make it happen
. Plus, with my HGTV running nasty commentary, it reduces DW's desire to pay attention.
I don't remember that we ever go out of our way to watch any program. TV is sort of the default setting in the living room. Both of us jump if one or the other suggests a least bit exciting other choice that we can share in the evening, such as carrying out the garbage together or a Mall walk/visit.
Lately, with DISH choices so bad, we often end up with Star Trek:The Next Generation as our default setting in the evening, except on HGTV nite.
Shows I mostly pay attention to:
Keith Oberman (sp?) lately-- but that's fading fast with the passing political season
The MacGlaughlin Group (sp?) on Sunday nite public TV, politics
HBO on Sunday nite when something good is running
