I LOVE Supernatural!! Not so much that first season when it was all just about the werewolves and other monsters - once they introduced Castiel - the show took on a whole new twist. God has a sister? who knew??

Basically most of the shows already listed.
I was just thinking of my flickering blue parent from long ago.
Oh yeah Johnny Socko and his flying robot.
Damn gargoyle!

I loved Breaking Bad from the opening moments.

I was into Walking Dead for a long time but I haven't been able to watch it after they killed of Carl.

On edit --- I was thinking ---- dammit.

Dallas - that was some serious melodrama and has there ever been a more beloved villain than J.R.?

SNL - at least some seasons.

And I think people should chose either a cooking or crafting or gardening or This Old House type program. Skills get them.
