Totally unpregnancy related... but...

Our new favorite show is TNT's "Leverage." I swore I wouldn't get hooked on another after I finally stopped watching Survivor. Although I still have to get my dose of American Idol every year...

But dang, "Leverage" is really well done! Great writing, excellent cast. I'm so impressed.

I really really try not to watch much actual TV. Really!

But anyone have any favs they just have to TiVo?

Oh boy. I was good about this recently and having DVR now I find I have lots of shows I "have to" DVR.

I currently watch Gossip Girl and 90210 (yes I know my age ), The Bachelor and plan to really start watching American Idol soon.

I don't really watch tv and dh usually just watches sports, but a few weeks ago we discovered a gem that the whole family now sits down for every Friday night -The Rick Mercer Show.

It's only relevant for Canadians, though. But, boy, is it hilarious!!! We're in stiches every show! Rick Mercer is a very Canadian political comedian and so dh and I laugh at his humour, but the kids get a kick out of all the silly things he does. It makes me appreciate the colloquialism (I think that's the right word) of Canadian politics. The prime minister is often part of the jokes and two weeks ago Rick Mercer helped the new opposition leader move into the official oppisition leader house. Anywho, that's the show I look forward to every week

Currently DVRing:
Lost
The Office
Top Chef

Also love Battlestar Galactica, but since I haven't seen the last season yet, I want to watch that on DVD before I watch this final season.
Other favorite shows (not currently on, but you ca get via Netflix/DVD):
The Wire (best. show. ever.)
Buffy/Angel
Gilmore Girls
West Wing

Just started watching Mad Men on DVD, but since I've only seen two episodes so far, I don't have an opinion yet.
