    Definitely Elementary, Revolution, and Shark Tank. :D All are worth checking out if you haven't already, especially Elementary. Oh and Touch even though the season hasn't started yet.

    I definitely agree with your assessment of Dexter. I can't think of any other show that has continued to maintain my interest after 7 seasons. Star Trek VOY is the only other series that maintained my interest over 7 seasons. star trek TNG doesn't count because the first 3 seasons were lame, and Star Trek DS9 was difficult to watch the last 3 seasons. X-Files was clunky after about 4 seasons.

    Anyone else think of a good series that lasted 7+ seasons?

    Just got into Dexter and love it. House is an all time favorite but the last two seasons started going down hill. Just getting through Breaking Bad although I just can't seem to stay hooked on it.

    My current (on-air) favourite shows are as follows:

    • Breaking Bad (not usually my kind of thing, but I LOVE it)
    • The Walking Dead (last season was rubbish (on the farm) but this season is much better)
    • Dexter (watched the latest season through habit - it's OK)
    • Modern Family
    • Family Guy
    • American Dad
    • Futurama
    • The Middle
    • The Big Bang Theory (I don't think it lives up to the hype -not on par with Frasier or Friends, however funny in its own, limited way)

    Previous favourites include:

    • Frasier (probably my favourite show of all-time)
    • Friends
    • Will & Grace
    • LOST (what a rubbish ending)
    • Star Trek TNG, DS9 & VOY (huge fan of all shows)
    • Battlestar Galactica
    • House
    • 3rd Rock from the Sun

    I have recently been trying to get into more programs, but unfortunately, none of them have grabbed my attention:

    • Game of Thrones (watched the pilot a few years ago - didn't like it, rewatched the pilot and second episode the other day and still don't like it!)
    • Mad Men (I watched the pilot. I can tell this is a well-made, high quality program, however don't think it's my kind of story)
    • Warehouse 13 (stopped watching halfway through the pilot episode)
    • Community (watched the pilot episode)
    • Burn Notice
    • How I Met Your Mother



    Can anyone offer me some solid recommendations based on what I've liked before?

    Dexter is good, but this last season was just ok.
    How I met your mother
    Grimm
    Modern Family
    Happy Endings
    Walking Dead
    True Blood

    I just got Friends from iTunes (got great deals on iTunes cards and used those). I like the convent of playing them on Apple TV. I tried to rip a friends disc, but I had to figure out what was episode was what, then 1 disc combined all 3 episodes as one. Got sick of it that and just downloaded the box set 1-5 and then 6-10. The only bad part about that was everything was as 1 on the box sets, so I made it by seasons and that was easy.

    Dexter is very good show. But I think they kind of blew it at the end of the 7th season. Unnecessary ending.

    I see many people mention those Star Trek shows, but omit to mention the best of them all: Star Trek Enterprise. Watching it second time now, and it's really great. Is the last modern and true Star Trek we will ever see. It's a shame it was cancelled.

    The new Star Trek movies are just action with brain dead story, with increasing elements of soap opera. You'll never see the old Star Trek again, based on exploration. A new Star Trek series will be the end of the franchise. Just like Stargate Universe became the end of the Stargate franchise, when they turned away from the old Stargate and introduced it as a new soap opera, with sex and relationships, as focus. It ended after the second season. Great job, those producers... they should be ashamed.

    I didn't care for the xindi story line. I felt the first two seasons were acceptable, the 3rd was lacking and the 4th had some good episodes, but the augments and romulan stories were weak. Finally, the finale sucked butt. But in a mirror darkly was by far the best episode of the series.

    I have seen all the star trek movies on opening week with the exception of motion picture. The reboot was an attempt to appeal to fans of star wars, battlestar galactica & stargate. It wasn't the worst, but it was far from the best.

    I am curious about Michael Dorn's proposed Captain Worf series.

    I only watched the first 2 seasons of dexter but enjoyed it. I have all 10 seasons of Friends because iTunes had a $10 per season sale and I had $50 gift card to use :D . They also did the same with Star Trek but I picked the seasons I liked best like S1 STOS, 2 seasons of STNG, S3 of Voyager, S3 of Enterprise, and a few DS9 seasons.

    My favorite shows are almost always Sci Fi:
    Alien Nation
    Farscape
    X-Files
    Babylon 5
    SG1 and Star Gate Atlantis
    Torchwood

    Current shows:
    Lost Girl
    S1-4 Misfits
    Doctor Who
    Grimm
    Walking Dead (just started S1)
    True Blood (have S1-4 in BR)

    If you like House, give Elementary a try. Takes a while to get up to speed, but it's really pretty good half a season in.
