Sorry, wetsroosa, hope he feels better soon.

I watch Doctor Who mostly. What else.... Sherlock, that's good. Then mostly sitcoms. My favorites being The Middle and The Big Bang Theory. For the few months I had Netflix, I got through the entire runs of The Office and Arrested Development, and most of How I Met Your Mother. And, of course, Saturday Night Live. That's it. I'm pretty sure.

I just watched an episode of History Detectives where they tried to authenticate a Bob Dylan guitar, Beatles autographs, and Frank Zappa artwork. 

In the Beatles segment, the autographs were signed during the band's stay at the Deauville Hotel in Miami. There were a few other autographs from people in that area, one of which was Cynthia Lennon. The Beatles autographs turned out not to be authentic, but some of the others were, like the Cynthia Lennon one.

If that's the one with Dylan's Newport Stratocaster, which was authenticated by them, it was auctioned in December and reached a world record for an electric guitar - $965,000!

Coincidentally I have just  finished watching Part 1 of No Direction Home - the Dylan doco by Scorsese - well worth the time.  I'll try and catch the second part tomorrow if I can tear myself away from my new stereo system - I assume the Strat will appear in Part 2.

Watching any good shows?  Yes indeed - just finished watching the DVD from the stereo box of all the mini-documentaries off the albums - quite entertaining it was too!

I recently discovered "Call the Midwife". It's set in the late 50s/early 60s in East London. A lovely BBC series. I also like Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Lost, Big Love, Rome, 6 Feet Under, ...

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I love Sherlock. Even got my sister liking it, and she usually only watches goofy teen shows. I don't watch that many shows on the telly but I have all the Star Trek Original Series on disc and I used to be really obsessed with that. Usually I watch tennis or science shows.

Really good. Definitely worthy, in my opinion. Each episode is pretty long though, like watching a movie. I think the casting is great and the so are the plots. The finales for each season are pretty dramatic though, which is cool, but it would be tiring if each episode were like that.

I'm watching "Tiny Plastic Men".  It's a comedy on Super Channel (which I believe is only available in Canada) on Monday nights.  It's HILARIOUS and the best part about it?  My son has a reoccurring role in it :)  This is Season 2 and the show has been nominated for a "Canadian Screen Award" for Best Comedy TV Series.  Season 3 is almost a sure-thing now and if so, his role will increase :)

I like Sherlock, too.  I try not to watch episodes of it unless I've read the story that the episode is an adaptation of, which makes it difficult because I've only read a handful of Sherlock Holmes stories and some of the episodes are based on entire novels.

Am currently watching Hostages (a US series being screened on Channel 4 here in the UK). Not sure if its good or bad considering the ludicrous plot and at times wooden acting and script. I am convinced over here it would have been 3 episodes at the most not 15!! Its one of those shows that gets more ridiculous the longer it goes on yet you keep watching since you've invested your time up till now. 

Aside from that Top Gear is back as is Dragons Den, which is scary at times hearing how much money people have invested in products that any sane person (and many insane) wouldn't think was a good idea. Things like £76,000 on developing an electric boiled egg topper, to save 2 seconds on cutting the top of a boiled egg off (ok i made that up but its not far off).  Not that i've seen the latest episodes, they are Sky+'d.

Oh yes mmm you reminded me. I forgot to mention Top Gear. I love that show and am a car fanatic. Especially Aston Martins.

I don't watch much television, but I've been mostly engaged watching Dexter and Sherlock lately. Really loving Sherlock right now.

I recently discovered a show that I never knew was so popular, "Chuck".  It ran for five years (2007-2012), and I've seen the first three seasons so far.  Only with season 4 (seen the first two shows so far) am I finding it a bit tiresome and repetitive.  But overall, it's been quite a sparkling romantic comedy, attached to a spy thriller format.  A tad juvenile at times, but I don't take myself so seriously that I can't "lower" myself to dig it.

I watched Chuck a bit while it was on the air, mostly because of Adam Baldwin (I'm a huge Firefly fan). Need to watch the later seasons, although others have warned me that it starts to drag after a few seasons.

Other musings...

I need to catch up on the last season of Doctor Who, but I've been a fan of that since it was shown on public television here in the States back when I was a kid. The reimagined series is absolutely brilliant.

Speaking of British television, my s/o turned me on to a bunch of old Channel 4 sitcoms like Spaced, Black Books, and (possibly my favorite) The IT Crowd. I watch those on Netflix when I can. Spaced I have on DVD, but I've seen it so many times I feel like I only need to watch it occasionally. It's kind of the way I feel about Star Wars in that respect, funny enough.
