How much TV do you watch?

I wanted to know how much (or little) the TESOF community watched TV - whether by cable, satellite, the internet, or any other way it could be watched.

I have a couple of satellites, but I hardly ever watch TV using them. Kind of a waste of hundreds of channels, but I do watch a lot of the stuff I download on my desktop computer (I use my 46" Sony as a computer monitor).

Lately I've been watching a lot of the stuff that was always highly recommended, but I never got the chance to see, such as:
    Fringe
    Sons of Anarchy
    Boardwalk Empire
    and a lot of sitcoms.

What shows have you been watching, if any? And how often do you watch TV?

Haha, I knew someone would mention Game of Thrones. Yeah, it's an awesome show. I watched the first season after all of the episodes were already out, and then starting watching Season 2 every week when it started. Waiting a week for ONE episode is such a tease - which is why I like that there are still quite a few shows out there I haven't seen yet that have fully completed seasons.

I tend to watch entire seasons, otherwise it breaks the flow of the show if I have to wait.

I've got IPTV and a couple too many pay tv stations I seldomly watch. But they're great for recording all the old classics and new series, as I like to watch all episodes of a season in a row, too. For some strange reason I get a lot of entertainment out of Falling Skies. It's kinda cheesy, but in the same lovingly way as SG-1, of which I own the complete box set. (got everything Star Trek and BSG, too)

And there's Breaking Bad, of course. Though I just finished season 1. And I'm looking forward to Game of Thrones, but missed the first season and am waiting for the replay to start recording and finally watching that one. I really love Steve Buscemi as an actor, but didn't get into Boardwalk Empire. Maybe it wasn't at the right time and I certainly believe it deserves a second chance.

But most of time my significant other is blocking the TV and watching soaps while knitting. Gives me more time undisturbed to play MMOs. Fair deal, I suppose.

I've seen all of Breaking Bad. It's a shame that it's on its last season - 8 episodes played this year, the other 8 will be in January (I think). Another great show. And without spoiling anything: I really feel it went downhill from season 4 to 5, but that might just be because I had to wait a week in between each episode. Ruins "immersion" so to speak.

Definitely do that, you won't regret it. I personally found the show to be a little slow for about the first 5 episodes, but after that it just really picked up and never stopped - all the way through to the end of Season 2.

I haven't seen either of them, but I will eventually. I haven't been to a theater in well over a year. Though I used to go very often when I lived up north. Both look like great comedies, and I'm especially looking forward to Ted.

I tried to watch it online, but I couldn't find any good site where I could stream it without being forced to download some program. After an hour of searching, I ended up with two crappy streaming-programs that didn't help at all, and I couldn't find any online-streaming website that streamed outside the US without programs...

I missed the time when all you had to do was to search for "Watch [series] online" and you got countless good results... Where did those websites go?

Ok, before anyone does it, please do not post any links to pirate sites and copyrighted material for free download.

With that out of the way, I just did a little search and season 1 of Game of Thrones is available on BD for as low as 25€. That's 2,50 per episode and well worth it. And there's coming a whole lot of bonus material with it, too.

i generaly dont watch TV. i only do when i have absoluteley nothing else to do in terms of work, games or books. When i do i dont watch alot. I like House. How i met your mother is also pretty good and one could potentially argue that big bang theory aint bad.

i never got into Fantasy series tho. No game of thrones for me. I also didnt read any of the books so i supose its to be expected.
On another thought thats not entierly true tho.
I watched Stargate when i was younger. Cause Mc Guyver.
And recently, to my own shock, i enjoyed Legend of Korra quite a bit, dispite me dispising Anime with a passion. Same goes for most animation shows. Probably its the punk punk thats going on.

House is really good, though I haven't been keeping up with it. How I Met Your Mother is a decent comedy, but there are a few on my list that I like so much more.

Just finished up watching Seasons 1-4 of Sons of Anarchy (and the two current Season 5 episodes). Starting watching a show called The Killing, which isn't too bad so far. On episode 4 right now.
