cursed, but the demons i confronted with dispersed
freaks and geeks - one season long. makes you nostalgic for a time you didn't live through. great characterization. like a really long and much, much better version of fast times at ridgemont high or dazed and confused

six feet under - a really watchable show... has the feel of a really long "american beauty". an awesome show to get high on with your roomates and watch if you are in college. i remember getting to the end of season two and being unbelievably grateful there was so much more of this series left to watch.

entourage - just a lot of fun. its the kind of life you're not sure you want to live (fast cars and slutty girls and making semi-not-sold-out hollywood movies) its fun to observe for a few seasons. its kind of the tv show equivalent of a good bling bling rap cd

nip tuck - the first few (3 or 4) seasons of this show are just amazing. the story lines are great, the characters are hilarious. a soap opera for men. this is another show to watch with friends (getting high not as compatible with this one)

lost - if you are a sucker for shows that slowly reveal and have plot twists and are all just one big mystery you can dissect forever and ever on message boards and "at the water cooler"... this is it. this is the tv show equivalent of "myst" the pc game

peep show - the funniest tv show i've ever seen. 2 british guys, both losers (one nerd and one unemployable shitty electronic music musician) try their best at relationships and life as roomates. i can't say enough about this show. the kind of show that will make you laugh so hard and so long you have to pause and rewind. the only show that even comes close would be the UK office

the office (UK version) - the characters are much more endearing than the US version. a million lols

dawson's creek - a soap opera, a guilty pleasure. watch gorgeous white kids party (moderately) try drugs (once) and all fuck each other eventually. the kind of show that is great to watch when things are going great in your life, but you're a little bored

the sopranos - i don't like the godfather or scarface or casino or goodfellas but the sopranos...the sopranos is different. tony soprano is so cool. the plot is good, the characterization is great, the theme song is great. you never know where it is going to take you... you feel the vulnerability of knowing that your life could be ruined by the feds at any moment. by the last season, when you see the opening credits and you hear the music and the actors names start coming across the screen, your adrenalin starts going

i forgot all about arrested development and another show like it "its always sunny in san Fransisco"

san fran lacks the heart and soul that arrested has. arrested seems like it was killed off in its prime. its just so funny. still not as funny as peep show at its prime, though

Shows I miss:

Scrubs ( Okay, not a bad ending... but I miss it )
Dead like me ( cancelled for fat actress... FUCK YOU JAMES CAMERON! FUCK YOU! )
Pushing Daisies ( cancelled because americans are stupid as hell )
X-Files first season style ( lost their shit in season 2 )

Regular TV

Mythbusters
Big Bang Theory
Entourage
House ( yeah sure it's been the same exact show for 5 years on repeat with madlibs dialogue... but I like the witty remarks, and I like mad libs)
The National Parks Documentary
Eureka
Occasionally I'll watch CSI miami just to laugh at David Carusso's incredibly bad acting.
South Park
Robot Chicken
Futurama
Leverage
Occasionally the Venture Brothers

Trying but not sure of:

Royal Pains
Fringe ( after a season i'm still not sure if i like it, i mean xfiles declined quickly... )
Zero Gravity
Flash Forward
I liked Dexter for a while, now I just don't get into it as much. Shark jumped for me.

Anime:

One Piece
Naruto Shippuden
Occasionally Phantom

That's the sum total of TV I have watched or do watch in the past few years. I think.

Addendum:

Shows that cannot and should not return:

The Wire was awesome.
Firefly was amazing.
Chuck. Let it die. It was fine, but now it's a sitcom.

Shows I'm afraid could never be made again for lack of skilled talent:

Twilight Zone
Mystery Science Theater 3000
Kids in the Hall

Regarding SNL:

Dear cast and crew of Saturday Night Live. Die in a fire. If you look back at SNL when it didn't suck, you'll find stark and glaringly obvious shortcomings in your own show that you are completely cognizant of having chosen to adopt simply because you are terrible human beings. You willfully made SNL unfunny and stupid because you hate america. Fuck you SNL, fuck you.

It was lupus once ... November 2007, baby.

The new episodes refuse to let anything change. Pilot episode was his multi-month stint in rehab, then he went back to work.

He quit in the next one, then came back at the beginning of the following episode. Now the old team is back.

Yeah, they do tend to change a bit every episode. I've been thinking it's just the writers trying to get all the characters fleshed out and seeing what works. Hopefully they'll manage to get things worked out soon.

I always wonder how shows like that usually end up running once the routine has been figured out...I mean, if one character is usually left up to one writer, another to a different writer, etc.

I feel like it might be this way with Futurama...except for the occasional brilliant one-liners that are thrown in from (what I'm guessing is) some random other writer.

Writers on television shows are credited as Producers for a reason. They're all on the payroll, and all write individual scripts, with others doing rewrites occasionally, and the scripts are selected on an individual basis. Usually. That's the case with Futurama, and probably Bob's Burgers. Loren Bouchard's other show, Doctor Katz, had a really focused feel to it. This was due to the show being dialogue-driven and with a small crew of writers. Larger shows have teams of writers (like in 30 Rock), so you can get really jarring changes in characters or plot from time to time ... that's what I think is up with Bob's Burgers. Maybe not, I could be wrong, but either way it got renewed for a second season, so let's see!

And some more:

Twilight zone (Original one!)
The Outer limits (Original one was so-so, the "new" 1995 series is better!)
Tales from the Crypt
The Shield
Shameless (There is an American version now, haven't seen that one, but the British is really good)

I would suggest shows like Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations where you can learn something about cultures and travel vicariously. (plus he's pretty funny)

Really any reality show involving traveling will waste your time wonderfully

Big fan of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. His book is on my wish list.

thanks for the suggestions, all. I've seen most of what carpetsmoker posted (babylon 5, firefly, some doctor who, some no reservations) but I guess I have a few more things to check out now.

His girlfriend got me really into the show Black Books

All of it is on Hulu, so go watch it! Now!

Channel Zero is amazing anthology horror. Based on creepypastas, and it has no business being as good as it is. Every season has been better than the last.
