    What TV series (and/or shows) do you never miss an episode of or are you currently following on TV/Netflix/downloading/etc.?

    I've been following these some of these series for a while, and some for about a month or so (in no particular order):

    1. Homeland
    2. 30 Rock
    3. The Mentalist
    4. Parks and Recreation
    5. Community
    6. Modern Family
    7. Person of Interest

    I'm also looking forward to watch The Following (which starts on January 21st) and The Americans (which starts on January 30th).

    --Person of Interest
    --Suits
    --Leverage. This was recently cancelled. So sad.

    Dexter and Boardwalk Empire. TV isn't what it used to be though, not much compelling shows out there anymore.

    Currently I'm focused on one serie: Homeland. It's a plot that catch me in an amazing way. Beyond that, I'm waiting for release in my country of the second season of New Girl. I am also waiting for the second part of the third season of The Walking Dead. I enjoy American series but part of my heart is placed in TV dramas in Japan and South Korea. These programs take much of my share of attention. Anyway, I insist: Homeland is one of the best series of recent times. :D

    I like to watch any of the Housewives shows. It makes me laugh to see all of those rich ladies in their expensive boots yelling at each other about basically nothing. It's also nice to see how the other half lives.:rolleyes:

    Depends on what kind of shows you like, really. There are many good shows out there (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Sons of Anarchy, etc.). Sure, they may not be the same as older shows like The Wire or even Twin Peaks, but I think there are many good series and much variety right now.

    Nowadays, I don't watch tv anymore, because Desperate Housewives has just ended, but when it started airing, I watched it religiously and I never missed an episode. I even have dvd copies of the show's seasons. As of now, I have yet to stumble upon a show that would lure me back to watching tv again.

    This new series "The Following", starring Kevin Bacon as the main character, is starting this Monday on FOX. Will anyone else be following (pun intended) it?

    Glad you mentioned this show. I did see a commercial for it not too long ago, and had since forgotten about it. From what I saw it looks interesting enough. I'll watch the pilot and see whether it will be another show to add to my list.

    Same here, I watched a commercial and then found the trailer on YouTube. It looks like a very dark show, just what I've been waiting for. And I really like that the plot revolves around serial killers. I hope it's worth watching!

    I'm following Ripper Street here in the UK. It is about police solving crimes in late 1800s. It might not make it until the end of its series because it portrays a lot of women as prostitutes and a lot of women are in uproar and complaining.

    I recently watched a bunch of episodes in a row of Extreme Cheapskates. It's an A&E show but someone uploaded some of the episodes on Youtube.

    I thought we, of the dontpayfull.com forums were frugal. But the people on Extreme Chepaskates take it to another level. One guy washes and reuses paper towels and gave his wife a 25th anniversary gift that he pulled out of a dumpster. A lady in New York does not use toilet paper. She keeps a bottle of water next to the toilet to clean up after doing her business.

    But one of the women, who pees in a bottle to cut down her water bill has enough money in savings to last until she's 100 years old, and she never has to work again. The other lady who doesn't use toilet paper owns her own apartment in New York City that is completely paid for. One of the male cheapskates who haggles for everything and buys weird cuts of meat and organ meats, lives in a beautiful house and retired in his 40's.
    So I don't know whether they're crazy or smart.

    They economize in crazy ,sometimes disgusting ways, but they are all debt free and retired.
    I won't go as far as they have, but I have been cutting back on unnecessary purchases this year.
    Extreme Cheapskates is a weird combination of shocking, gross and inspiring.

    Definitely crazy, in my opinion. Going to the bathroom is a basic need, it's not something you should try to economize in!

    I follow Sons of Anarchy, The New Normal, Deception, and Dexter. If I miss an episode of these shows, I normally watch it online.

    Did anyone watch "The Following" on Monday? It was a little disappointing, in my opinion. Excessive Poe quotes, cheesy music and a plot that moves faster than the Road Runner. But, in its defense, it was the pilot, so the series should get a lot better over a few episodes.
