I write SF. SF is cool.
My list of must-watch TV is short. This season, the list includes:

I do like this show a lot. Is has a good crew of veteran actors who are great to watch.

Then again maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy!

I was surprised by how much I love the new Elementary series because I loved the Sherlock series so much! I don't think it's at Sherlock's level, yet, but I can see it getting there.

I'm mostly watching stuff I missed on Netflix. The only thing I'm actively watching these days is The Walking Dead. So naturally I'm liking it.
I recently watched Persons Unknown, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but wasn't as good as it could have been.
I'm in the middle Downton Abbey Season 2, and I like it very much. I tend to watch mostly genre stuff, but I like this quite a bit.
I'm on Supernatural Season 7. It's still pretty entertaining, but I'd like it to shift and give the characters time to grow and change more. At this point it seems to be in an unending angstathon with a kind of directionlessness in regards to their foes.
The only future for the Winchesters is for them to be honest and deal with some stuff and perhaps seek some kind of therapy. Bobby is almost as screwed up as them so he's no good. A hunter yoda figure?
I think they should actually become more organized and form a little Hunter Academy (or possible A-Team). Add some teen and early twenties hunters to take under their wing. Force them to become the mature ones. New characters, new issues, new dynamics. Slowly moving the Winchesters from Cyclops to Professor X. Just an idea.
Slowly watching Ken Burn's Civil War for a little edumacation. Calmly interesting so far.
Lastly, I enjoyed LOST although the first season is clearly the best so I ventured into ALIAS. I'm only a few episodes in, but it's entertaining so far. A little too much angsty folk music in the background and I could do without Bradley Cooper, but otherwise not bad.

Spartacus War of the Damned.
I loved Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena. Vengeance was a bit meh, but the new series has really sunk into fantasy with the introduction of a blonde haired, blue-eyed, bearded Julius Caesar infiltrating Sparty's camp as an assassin/spy for Marcus Crassus.
The series has become a Frank Miller pastiche of history that actually makes Mr Miller look like Polybius in comparison.
There are four episodes left and I'm half expecting Bill and Ted to turn up in theTardis with Leonidas, Hannibal Barca, Attila the Hun and Alexander the Great to kick the Romans back into the bronze age
I've been watching "Vikings" recently. It's how historical drama should be done. The lead actor (Travis Fimmel) who plays Ragnar is excellent and reminds a lot of the late Andy Whitfield with his very understated acting style.
Also been getting into "Archer" an animated series which is best described as James Bond for the American Dad generation.
