I can't stand House.  I'm in the medical profession myself, and watching House causes me physical pain.
Scrubs, now, THAT is worth watching.

I'm surprised, nay, astonished that no one has mentioned Heroes yet.

Or season 3 of Galactica for that matter.

I'll give it a couple more episodes but Falling Skies just might make my "quit watching" list very soon.

I was fortunate in that I didn't watch Galactica beyond the pilot. As soon as it became clear that the Cylons were going to be mostly human in appearance, I lost interest. Aside from that being a tired plot device - anyone could be a robot, and they might not even know it - it's also an excuse to put less eye candy on the screen. It reminded me of the old War of the Worlds TV series that pulled the same crap, having the aliens take human form so they didn't have to actually show us aliens most of the time.

Smallville.

When it's great, it's Superman.

When it's bad, Dawson's Creek.


I am watching the last series though as I wasnt to see how it all pans out. And I'm sick of Green Arrow. He's just a substitue for Bruce Wayne. And so blantently so. They're not even trying with his character!

I got a shock a few weeks ago when I saw supergirl, looking like Supergirl saving someone like Supergirl does! An actual comic book character in Smallville how looks and behaves like their comic book counterpart? Who'd have thought it....

Wait til the final episode if you haven't seen it.

And, Bruce Wayne was supposed to be on it.  But they had a hit with Batman Begins, and a bigger hit with Dark Knight, and didn't wanna put him on Smallville.

Darker than Black

I couldn't handle just how dark (no pun intend... or is there?!) the series turned out.  It became a bit too much to handle.  A bit hypoticial of me since I enjoy Deadman Wonderland, The Drifting Classroom, Let Me In, and such.

I used to enjoy the show Chuck, but it started to become tired and formuatic. So I just gave up on it.

In Plain Sight- some cop show on USA about the witness protection program.  I watched the first season or two, this season I haven't really watched.  Should get back into it.

I watched "House" pretty regularly for the first three seasons or so but eventually lost track of it. I still occasionally catch an odd episode here and there on a re-run but haven't been a regular viewer for a while now.

I gave up on SyFy Channel's new show "Alphas" after the second week. The promo's make it look way more action packed and exciting than it really is, the show itself is fairly boring. Besides, if you're gonna use Monster Magnet's "Heads Explode" in all of your promos, you should actually have someone's head frickin explode in the actual show!!!  TeddyR

Family Guy- I started watching this back when it initially ran, in say 1999 or so.  I remember disliking the fact that it got cancelled.  Then it came back, and I think cancelled again, before being 're-instated' for a third run. 

It should have STAYED cancelled.

It's more of the same, week in and out, with no change.  And, cutaway REFERENCES unrelated to the story, aren't, you know, JOKES.  Also, I'm not offended by crude humor or offensive material.  I just think there's more creative ways to go about singing an AIDS song without it being dumb and "Shocking."  Howard Stern was a 'shock' jock, but knew how to do it in a creative manner. 

Family Guy should study South Park and attempt that.

I hate to say it but Doctor Who might make my list of shows that I don't watch anymore. Im just not feeling it ever since Matt Smith took over. Its not so much Matt Smiths acting its Stephen Moffats writing. While I have always loved the offbeat sic-fi stories and creatures in Doctor Who, Im finding these new stories very lacking in resolving the story. It seems that when ever the Doctor finds himself in a difficult situation now days the way he resolves the situation is either very convoluted to the point you have no idea what just happened or way to simple. And the sonic screwdriver has gotten way to powerful, the damn thing isn't some tri-corder or  magic wand its a screwdriver, it applies torque to an object sonically.

Also I think I'll add Falling Skies to this list. The show just never really took off for me. The characters weren't very well written and seemed very generic. The show could have been really good but it never did more than what was required for a show about an alien invasion.

You're kidding, right?
 Question

In RTD's era the sonic screwdriver did EVEYTHING!
And when it wasn't the SS it was parying magic nonsense.

In fact, give me one episode where the ss was used to solve the situation?

Yeah, the capabilities of the sonic screwdriver were always pretty vague, right back to Patrick Troughton. It's always been used as a lockpick and to disrupt machinery. Pertwee was using it to detonate landmines. Tom Baker used it to cut metal. And I think by the time it got to Eccleston, the screwdriver could be used as a remote control for the TARDIS. I always considered the screwdriver name to be kind of a jokingly ordinary name the Doctor gave to what is the time lord equivalent of a Swiss army knife - a multipurpose tool with driving screws as the least of its capabilities. And the design of the screwdriver has changed over the years, which might suggest some improvements made by the Doctor. It has been suggested that he invented the thing in the first place.

For me, no change to Doctor Who would be cause to abandon the series, because it has taken so many different directions in its history. Serials, stand-alone episodes, season-spanning story arcs as early as the 70s, cast changes every couple of seasons, a focus shifting between period settings, hard SF, gothic horror, various combinations of comedy, drama, action. The Doctor has spent years based entirely on Earth and teamed up with the military. Nothing has been permanent, and it's all served to enrich the overall show in the long run. Matt Smith's a young actor who no doubt has a plan to use the show as a springboard to other things, and he probably won't hang around any longer than Tennant or most of the other Doctors, and the show will change again. And I think Moffat's plans for the show will continue to evolve as well.

Nothing is permanent in Doctor Who. The Daleks keep coming back, the Master has been killed and resurrected more than once. The Time Lords have managed to cause trouble in spite of being wiped out. The Cybermen were not only recreated on a parallel Earth, the originals appear to have returned. That whole story about rebooting the universe could have undone any changes made since 2005.

I just can't view a change to Doctor Who the same way I would a change to another show. By its flexible nature and its long history, it's transcended the usual rules for me. You'd have to seriously mess it up to make me consider abandoning it.
