The best show in the history of TV in my opinion. I doubt we will see another show like that ever again. I haven't had a chance to watch the bonus footage from the last season yet. Are you re-watching the show or watching for the first time?

Well, I started watching the show at the beginning of season 2. I continued to watch it all the way through the end of season 6. I bought the Blu-Ray collection and watched season 1, and am continuing to watch it all the way to the end again.

There's a great website for LOST fans: http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Search anything you want: you'll find answers.

I didn't see the remake of Battlestar. I heard it was very good. I enjoyed the original. Isn't that show Caprica suppose to be a prequel to the remade Battlestar?

We are starting to enter dangerous levels of nerdness right now Inferno. Someone is going to give this thread a wedgie and steal its lunch money if we keep down this path.

What is your #1 show?

the original BSG is absolute garbage compared to the reimagined one. seriously you cant even compare the 2. the show starts off at the miniseries with a nice slow boil, by the middle of the miniseries its exploded, and it never really lets off the throttle all the way through to the finish. Its really a remarkable show..its actually more like 1 super long movie because of the quality of production.

regarding nerdness, ive crossed so far over into that territory so long ago i dont even remember what it was like to not be a nerd.

you know the funny thing is...one of the shows in my top 10 was canceled after 1 season...and it was only 15 episodes, which is a damn shame. if you get the chance, rent/download this show. it ends on a cliffhanger, which is unfortunate, but its awesome for the 15 eps that it existed:

68MGQR10, sending me a link to Lostpedia is like handing the Pope a Bible and telling him to read it. I spent more time on that site than any mammal should.

One of my favorite shows was canceled after a very short run as well. Carnivale. It was a show on HBO. It was very strange. I think me and 4 other people on the planet actually watched it.

If you don't disclose your favorite show I will just operate under the assumption that it is Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Your call.

Just finished The Walking Dead season, and I gotta say I'm pleasantly surprised. Recently anything Zombie related (aside from Zombieland) has blown pretty bad... Sadly rumor has it we'll have to wait until October for season two but it has 13 episodes so that's a plus!

Also am I the only one who watches The Event?

I was really sick this week and the one positive that came out of it is that I was able to catch up on my DVR'd shows. I watched the entire season of The Walking Dead yesterday. I enjoyed it. I like how they paid homage to the Romero movies. The people being trapped in a mall...Dawn of the Dead. Then trapped in an underground military bunker...Day of the Dead.

The zombie thing is being overdone a bit but I will say that the re-make of Dawn of the Dead was one of the best re-makes I have ever seen. I really enjoyed that. I actually think it blew the original out of the water.

Yeah I have a bit, not entirely sure where my sudden obsession with Zombies has come from. Possibly from watching the Rangers play lifeless hockey for so long haha.

I watched the first episode and liked it. Missed the other episodes.

Somehow the history channel has me locked into Ancient Aliens right now. Been DVR every episode and can't get enough.

Dexter would definitely be in my top 10. I thought last season with Trinity was incredible. One of the best endings to a season I can recall.
