See ? That is what i mean.I never heard of "Leverage" for example.
I´ve seen a couple episodes of "Fringe", was alright but not really my thing."House" is in the list above, awesome show."Mythbusters" is ok i guess.Saw a couple episodes of that on TV already.Getting very repetitive and boring after like 3 episodes.

So i´ll check out "The Big Bang Theory" , "The IT Crowd" and "Leverage".

Thanks man.

edit-->
Pilot of "The Big Bang Theory" seems to be alright. Not exactly what i am into, but at least something to watch.Might start watching that when i there is nothing else left.
-->
"Leverage" looks promising.Thanks for pointing that one out.I´ll put it on my to view list :)
-->
Picked a random episode of "The IT Crowd".The constant extreme loud fake laughter is just way too annoying.Seems to be enjoyable if it wasn´t for that.Just going to cause a headache so i won´t watch another episode.

Star Trek is alright. Saw the old show and the remake a few years ago.
It is not really my genre though.Won´t watch "Babylon 5" etc.
Used to watch the old "Battlestar Galactia" as a kid. Don´t like the remake.
Kinda forgot "Twin Peaks".

Never heard of "Crusade" or "Firefly", gonna check those out.

Firefly is great (unfortunately like all good shows it was canceled after one season). Also check out the related movie - Serenity.

Yup, loved Firefly (and Serenity). Also, be sure to check out a miniseries called The Lost Room, really good stuff.

You made me curious.Couldn´t find Crusade, but Firefly , Serenity and the Lost Room.I think i already saw Serenity,i am not sure.
Gonna take a day or two till everything is complete if you know what i mean :)

Kinda hard to find a good source for "the Wire".Its like 52 files on a OCH just for one season. Usually would skip that mess.At least the quality is going to be alright... hope it is worth watching.

Here are a few good animated shows. Yes, they are cartoons. Boo hoo. You'll like them anyway! ;)

Batman: The Animated Series (the 90's Art Déco style one, not the stupid Camp ones or the ones after)
Batman Beyond (yeah, I lied. This one is actually pretty good).
Avatar: The last Airbender (Not related to James Cameron, if you saw the MNight SHALACRAP version, ignore the film and watch this for epic animation).
Death Note
Full Metal Alchemist (Both "Brotherhood" and the Original)

And Finally...

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

No, I am not trolling on the last one. It has taken the Internet by Storm, and if you check here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqgsXkmQ6ZI The most popular demographic is Males aged between 25 and 34, proof that it is genuinely a good show.
