I've been watching a lot of television lately, since I have lots of me-time on my hands. I've tried out a number of new shows that have been recommended to me, or I've stumbled upon myself. My quick reviews:

Alias
I've watched season 1 and am completely hooked! It's like a mix between Veronica Mars and Buffy and James Bond. It's a great show with an engaging plot, and wonderfully complex characters. Not to mention attractive! Mmhmm... :P

Roswell
Another show that hooked me right away. I'm 3/4 through the first season and enjoying it quite a lot. It's teen-oriented, so sometimes I don't relate to the plots, but I love the idea and overall show. It has great actors and actresses, and the love story is compelling. I find it adorable, and let's be honest, who doesn't love Max Evans?

Dexter
I only watched the first episode, on a suggestion based on the fact that I like Bones and Criminal Minds, etc. Well this show is a little different, focusing on a serial killer. I have not yet found him sympathetic, but I find him intriguing. Anyone watched? Should I keep going for a few episodes?

Little Britain
OMG hilarious! Seriously, I've been laughing out loud. And Anthony Head as PM? How can I go wrong? It's a very funny show, and they've already made Star Trek references. Fun, and thoroughly British.

Robin Hood
This has long been on my Netflix queue and I am quite excited that I finally watched an episode! Mmm Robin is quite delicious, he's very cute and quite the hero. I'm in the mood for a completely-good hero, they're so rare in television now. It's refreshing, and yay!accents. :D

Merlin
Another lovely British program with a fun cast and good hero-complexes. I am currently watching the first episode, and oooh was I excited that the FIRST words spoken in the show were spoken by ASH! Even though so far he's kind of a jerk...oh well. Arthur's a jerk too! And he's so loveable in "Camelot"! Oh, where oh were is Richard Burton when you need him? (actually just a Netflix click away) I'm enjoying the show so far, and I'm sure I'll keep watching - for ASH if nothing else. Yum.

Big Bang Theory
I am in LOVE with this show, it is my new drug of choice. I laugh so much out loud (when I'm alone - wow!) every single episode! It's so hilarious, witty, geeky, I love love love it! They make Star Trek references just about every episode, and I'll admit after I watched the one where Penny got hooked on the online RPG, I had to play Guild Wars for like 3 hours. Fun! :P Oh, and I'm only partly through season 2, so no spoilers, please!

Now I need suggestions for what to choose next from my queue. Some programs on the list:
- thirtysomething (why not, eh?)
- Lois and Clark (haven't seen it in years)
- Amazing Stories (Spielberg's answer to the Twilight Zone)
- Friday Night Lights (I'm not a football person, but have gotten 2 recommendations now...)
- Hotel Babylon (another British series)

Friday Night Lights is AMAZING (and it's not really about the football. It's about Kyle Chandler's smoldering eyes)

Hotel Babylon's 1st series is excellent, but it does go off the boil a bit after that.

Watch Community!!! I just got into it, it's the same fast-paced kind of wit as Big Bang, but excellent variety of characters to love and hate :D

Give Dexter time. It's not a snag-with-the-first-ep series. It will kidnap you a few in. Trust me. Awesome.
