It's funny you don't feel the same way about "Lost". Once they are found, the show is over.

If that was going to happen then the show wouldn't be named "Lost"-- it'd be named "To Be Found Someday".

They're all going to die on that island-- right after the Hawaii government and the production-industry unions milk every last dollar of revenue enhancement out of them!

Lots of HBO including:
Deadwood (new season starts in June!)
Big Love (could Bruce Dern be any creepier?)
Sopranos
Rome (don't know if it's coming back)

Watched both episodes of "Elizabeth 1" on HBO. Good but gory. And if you have a chance to see "Warm Springs" about FDR, watch it. Really well done.

CNN, CNBC, old movies on TCM, and if I want to zone-out I watch the Weather Channel maps in motion (Local on the 8s).

Re: What do you like on the tube?

To tell you the truth, I can't hardly stand any of it. Hate reality shows. Stopped watching the network news (local or national) and talking head shows several years ago. Can't stand CNN. Fox is ok if I need a news fix. Used to listen to talk radio, but even that got old.

Turn the TV on about 8:30 or 9:00 and flip thru the channels. Very rarely is there anything worth watching, besides an occasional movie. Got worn out on HGTV when we were remodelling our house.

Look at the pc screen more than the boob tube. Not sure that's really much healthier (exepting this site of course)...
