NCIS
Sort of like the Avengers, but with better plot lines, and better character interplay.  And a few brilliant one-liner in-jokes.
Mythbusters.  But only with the English speaking voice-over.

The cheapo documentaries are becoming noticeable (via interminable repeats) mainly for the unforced errors, thoroughly ignorant PHd's spouting badly thought out drivel, cheap CGI and talking down to the audience. The concentration on impact, rather than content, doesn't improve their case.
Currently, its on the Travel Channel, showing "Swiss Railway Journeys".  Not mentally challenging, but informative wallpaper with pleasant pictures, lucid accurate explanations of some amazing engineering achievements, and nobody shouting that "If that nut is not put on properly the end will fall of and we all GONNA DIE!!!"

They've got Abby in the lab, and Ziva out of it.  Not too interested in the male leads.  You need to see it to understand.

I find tv to be very disappointing of late.

Finding Im enjoying more factual programmes like Extreme Universe, Universe, Whale Wars, Moon Machines etc. BSG the mini series was excellent mind although the series was a big let down.

Just dont find any of the tv 'comedians' funny nowadays. Harry Hill, sorry Martin but he's about as funny as a boil on yer bum!

Started to watch the prog about how wind changed us and the planet last night. What a load of absolute clap-trap. I suffered 20 minutes of this juvenile garbage before switching over.
Anyone with more than an IQ of 50 also knows that water plays just as an important role as wind....as they are interlinked, so trying to isolate one from the other is just plain stoopid. I also believe that wind blows from a high pressure area into a low pressure area (to fill the hole). Another example of TV idiocy that could well forment wrong beliefs. BY.

I presume that someone sold a TV producer on the idea of doing 'Earth, Air, Fire and Water', the four original elements of Empedocles.

Perhaps we will get the Quintessence in a follow-up program....

With out doubt the best TV show ever would have to be Catweazle. My wife got the whole series for me for Christmas and I am trying to eek out the episodes. Minder is one of my alltime favorites and Top Gear is one that I watch religiously and May makes me laugh.
