Personally I can't wait for the new season of 24 to start on Sky One next week. It is my favourite TV programme bar none. It also helps that I get to look at Kiefer Sutherland Kiss

Did you see the 24 preview last Sunday night?  It was only ten minutes, but what a ten minutes!  Am literally counting the minutes until it starts again.

Doctor Who, I can't get enough of Russell T Davies' writing and I have a major crush on David Tennant, which may just about crop up in nearly every post  Wink lol

I was waiting for ages to see the preview, it was well worth the wait!
It will be great to have 24 back on Sunday nights, and a 2 hour episode to start off with!
Jack's most definitely back.

I'm also a huge 24 fan, although I made the mistake of watching series 3 before getting 1 and 2 on DVD. I missed the preview last weekend but already have Sky+ set on series link for the start of day 5.

Supernatural is good, although I felt the pilot was better than the two episodes screened since. This clashes with 24 now so thank whoever for Sky+

Aside from that, Sea of Souls is far-fetched but strangely entertaining and I love Northern Lights as a complete change of genre.

Match of the Day is also worth a watch... Smiley

My favorite of all time is nypd blue. But why do they leave it so long in-between series. America is so far ahead of us.And why do they never show repeats. And why is only season 1 and 2 out on dvd.
This is bad for a fantastic series.

Shameless is absolutely the only programme I will not miss. Brilliantly written and not a duff performance among them. My favourite - Marty with Tourettes.
Looking forward to new 24 tomorrow, and love Nip and Tuck - darkest programme ever to come out of the US.

being a sad northerner,Shameless is my fave,if a little too close for comfort.And the lack of a Duff performance (and a McAvoy one)has inexplicably made the 3rd series better than the 2nd.Kev is my good twin and Debbie is my daughter(my daughter has a smaller beak though).I am not FG though.Life on Mars has been good and My name is Earl has made me cry twice.Soz.sharing too much.

The free TV guides are all well and good in weekend papers (although the Telegraph one is awful), however if any publishers would like to get out of the habit of giving away free CDs and DVDs, then us newsagents and our paper deliverers would be eternally grateful! Off topic I know, sorry.

Law of averages that someone would give away something decent sooner or later I guess  Wink
