Oh, Psych definitely looked like something I would watch. Roommate showed me an episode or 2 of it and I liked it. Forgot about it.

I enjoy Psych for what it is. It ranks as one of the few shows that I keep up with watching week to week. Season 7 starts in February (10 ******* months after season 6 ended) and I am stoked.

I really enjoy Warehouse 13 and I am pretty sure at least the first two seasons are on Netflix for instant streaming.

Psych is the best.

I am a HUGE Warehouse 13 fan and have seen every episode. I absolutely adore the characters and the whole concept.

Eureka was as one of my top 3 shows, if not the favorite at one time, but the last two seasons haven't been as solid as the earlier ones. Still good - some episodes great - but I think they lost touch and tried changing too much that didn't work too well. Still worth watching, for sure. I mean, I think we just had the final season so it's gone now, but if it's on Netflix, I recommend it. As I said, the early seasons are brilliant.

Did you find it at all difficult to avoid spoilers for this season, since it already aired in the UK? I did. Oh, well. I'm still going to enjoy the season immensely.

Maggie Smith was hilarious when she thought Robert was a waiter and asked him for a drink. The look on her face when Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine) was singing "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" right next to her was priceless, too.

My favorite line was Cora's when Robert told her he lost all her money: "Don't worry about me; I'm an American--have gun, will travel."

I'm still a one-person Edith Crawley (Postwar Version) Fan Club. I'm rooting for her. But I think that Strallen is a total schlub.

i avoided spoilers at all cost after i heard season was ruined for many. I was kinda underwhelmed by shirley mclain. Feels like its going to be more like season 1 than 2, more of a charcter study, so hard waiting a week in between.finally got my parents to watch it,they watched seasons 1 and 2 on saturady and sunday,terribly addicting.

I love psych. It's a show I can consistently find entertaining and if I'm not in the mood for a serious crime show, psych is perfect. Season 7 needs to start, I don't want to wait another 7 weeks.

I've found I have to have a cup of tea and some tea biscuits when I sit down to watch it. :lol:

I agree that Shirley could've been used much better. But I enjoyed the idea that she and her maid blew a breath of fresh air into the place.

On the 5th episode of Psych. Love it. Perfect combo of crime drama, action, and comedy.

This show and Monk were a great 1-2 combination, especially back in the first few seasons.

I thought Psych ended already...

You're doing the first season? If you like it so far, wait till you get to season 2... that's when it got really good.

Of course I'm doing the first season. Why would I start a show in the middle?

How the F do I know if you're watching from scratch or re-watching it? I assume you never watched before but I have no clue.

My friend - female - cried when Monk got taken off the air. I loved it myself. First season that Psych aired, I thought that Monk was better, but then in season two when Psych improved writing and just about everything, IMO, it became better than Monk.

aside from more vague Jericho to Netflix information, I saw it interesting that the guy that played Hawkins is gonna be back on the walking dead in the new season.

What are people's thought on The Walking Dead? I just started watching on Netflix and am kind of torn. I seem to have a lot of friends who watch it, but still complain pretty constantly about the stupid plot turns and annoying characters (which is what I do with Dexter). I usually have an issue with zombie apocalypse scenarios, since they seem too implausible and characters have to consistently make ridiculously stupid decisions to keep the tension up (I think 28 Days Later is a notable exception). On the other hand, I need something to watch now that Dexter and Homeland are done and Game of Thrones and Mad Men are still 3-4 months away.

The only people that don't like Jericho are those that only saw season 2 (which I still have yet to finish)
