My Favorite Tv Shows Of 2010

No time for blogging today! My scientific team and I are just finishing up some year-end fembot maintenance. In the meantime you can read about my favorite non-news related TV shows that I watched in 2010 in alphabetical order (most of them are in reruns):

I love watching 30 Rock every week.

Cancelled after three seasons, episodes of the Comedy Central cartoon Drawn Together still airs once in a while. I really like Foxxy Love and Princess Clara, but I think that Ling-Ling steals the show every week! The third season was definitely the best.

I missed the show Friends when it originally aired, so now I enjoy it in reruns.

I really like Futurama and am glad that Comedy Central decided to renew the show. There are supposed to be at least thirteen more episodes that will be broadcast in 2011!

The TV show House is awesome!

I've been watching Scrubs because Dr. Cox and Dr. Kelso are hilarious!

Anything Shatner is always awesome. I really enjoyed Shatner's Raw Nerve [ 2 ] interviews with Leonard Nimoy, Rush Limbaugh and Weird Al Yankovic. Unfortunately many of the show's interviews are with some of Hollywood's not so interesting stars like Whoopie Goldberg, Tim Allen, Henry Winkler, Drew Carey, Jenna Jameson, Kelsey Grammer, John Voight, Jimmy Kimmel, Judge Judy, Jenna Jameson, Valerie Bertinelli and Scott Baio.

I like to watch South Park, although I think that the show's message can be kind of whiney and preachy at times.

Of course my favorite shows are science fiction or horror related, so here are my favorite spooky shows:

I have really really enjoyed all three seasons of the British TV series Being Human. I especially like Sinead Keenan who plays the nurse/werewolf Nina. The show is so good that the Sci-Fi channel SyFy channel is making an American version that is bound to be really crappy by comparison to the original show.

I like to watch Elvira because she plays the really awful horror films that I crave. She is the last of a dying breed of cheesy horror film hosts. (I really miss Bob Wilkins.)

Although I don't like the beginning credits for Masters of Horror, it's one of my favorite shows ever. My favorite episode is Deer Woman [ 2 ]. Other episodes that are also worth mentioning are Homecoming, Family and Jenifer.

One of my favorite shows is Monsters because they always have some kind of monster in every episode. One of my favorite episodes is Micro Minds [ 1, 2 ] because the giant amoeba special effects are so hilarious.

I kind of like the show, Night Visions, although I found the host of the show, Henry Rollins, really annoying. There were only 13 episodes of the show. I especially like the episode "Bokor", but that is mostly because I have a crush on actress that was in it, Samantha Mathis. [ 2, 3 ]

I have been watching episodes from both of the different revivals of Rod Serling's original series, The Twilight Zone, the 1985 version and the 2002 version. By the way, the Sci-Fi channel SyFy channel is running a marathon of the original Twilight Zone on December 31st.

Tales from the Crypt is pretty awesome. I think that the Crypt Keeper should eat a few more between meal snacks, however.

I have ben watching the awesome TV show Tales From the Darkside. My favorite episode is definitely Seasons of Belief [ 1, 2 ], which is about a monster called the Grither.

And there you have it, my favorite shows of 2010!

I wish i had your strength of will and dedication, Doctor Zaius. I can never seem to find the time to watch TV, however, you did forget one special program:

Zauis -

Happy New Year - The time until the Great Ape, um, Takeover (?) draws nearer. I for one look forward to having you officially as my overlord.

That said...

Ling-Ling t ("so dissapoint, so sad") completely rules that show. No one else finds him as funny as I do (except for you - another reason I'm sure for why we are friends), but Drawn Together is my favorite cartoon find of this year. And I'm seriously considering buying the series. I've hears a rumor that there is a feature-length film in the works. Too cool!

You left out Daria -- which I know you love as much as I do--and I bought the entire series at my local, indie store this year (after you told me it was coming out on DVD finally), and I have enjoyed an hour or two of Lawndale every night, for at least half of this year.

I miss Creature Feature, too. I met Elvira back in the '80s. She's a doll. Next time we meet up, I'll spill the beans. Nothing but goodness there BTW.

Heh heh Daria sucks heh heh hmm hmm heh heh.

I refuse to buy Tales from the Darkside on DVD since they butchered the tunage. Wankers.

30 rock is amazingness. So well written. YAY TINA FEY!

Hmmmm 30 Rock. I "kinda" like it. Really though, the only two I can stand are Tracey Morgan and Alec Baldwin. So that's a hit and miss for me.
Drawn together!! Da Bomb! Ling-Ling is the best, I agree.
Hate Friends.
Love Futurama.
I've never seen House (I know I know.. where have I been??)
Never saw Scrubs.

I've seen a few episodes of Raw Nerve. I loved the one with Leonard Nimoy. Shatner was SO pissed that he didn't know Spock was a photographer too! Classic.

South Park I like but rarely get to see. My husband was letting Massimo (5) watch it so I try to keep it on the "down low" as I'm weaning him off of it. :P

Being Human!! Love it. We've only seen the first 2 Seasons so far. At first I hated it but as it went along, grew to LOVE it.

Elvira-never saw.
Masters of Horror, never saw.
Monsters.. never saw.Night Visions..never saw.
I used to love Outer Limits-haven't seen it in years though.
Crypt Keeper-awesome.
I've never seen Tales from the Darkside.

Great list Dr. Zed!

Oh yea, we were way into Creature Feature on Friday nights with Tu-Ur-Door pizza.

And what's up with Shatner's Raw Nerve? Is it over or is there a new season coming up? I'd so rather watch that than Sh*t My Dad Says. How disappointing...
