So I thought I should share a few television shows I like, some that ended, some that are not.

1.  Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory is currently one of the great comedies shredding the charts, and not without reason.  It's a show that almost everyone can enjoy, though you get the most out of it if you understand the references.  The big thing BBT does for me is show a true portrayal of a geek or nerd, and in a good light.

 2.  Community

I have written about Community on here before but I just wanted to reiterate.  Community is great.  It's that plain and simple.  Unfortunately with all the ups and downs this last season has had, and the creator being fired, it looks like next season will be it's last.

3.  Wilfred

Wilfred is such a unique comedy that it's hard to explain it to someone who hasn't seen it.  It's about this man Ryan, who sees a man in a dog costume where everyone else sees a dog.  Hilarity ensues.

4.  Fringe

It's last season is going to be it's last.  That was a harsh blow, but at least it will get it's chance to wrap everything up.  Fringe is like X-Files, but instead of aliens you have mad scientists, people from the future, and alternate universes.  It will be missed.

5.  West Wing

I know this one came out of left field.  It did for me too as I've only recently gotten into it.  I was too young to find it interesting when it was on originally but now I can't get enough of the show.  It really is good, to me it's all about the dialogue.  Good dialogue, good show.  Great dialogue, epic show.

6.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Again, it's about the dialogue, and when it comes to words, Whedon is king.  The snarky look at horror, and the ability to whip out classic one liners is a skill that only a Whedon show can encapsulate so well.  And, since I don't want to write about all his shows, though great they are, I'll just list them here.   Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse.  Watch them, love them, hate them, and then love them again.  It's a vicious circle.

7.  Castle
Okay, so I like this for Fillion.  It's like Bones, but only the first couple of season's because try as like to like Bones again after the first 2 seasons, I just can't get into it.  Castle is just a really well done show, and one of the only ones I watch on ABC that I watch when it's on.
