I haven't rewatched My so-called life in years. I don't want to ruin the memory. I started high school the year it aired and really related to Angela. I did have an Angela-esque moment recently though. I warned myself not to declare myself over a guy and then find out I'm not.
I've never related to a tv character since.

For all the TV I watch, I really watch very little outside of about 5 channels.

I've seen a lot of shows mentioned that I have really enjoyed, but either never had regular access to, or could never remember to watch to have seen them enough to call them favorites... My viewing consists mostly of cartoons and syndicated shows like Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, and Golden Girls.

I do have a fondness for a lot of [adult swim]/Williams Street original programming as well... I really like their campy, low-brow approach to surrealism and the absurd (It's even within my grasp! :) ), as well as their anarchistic "anything goes" approach to programming/content. But, as far as adult swim's non-original programming is concerned, I am sick to death of seeing Seth MacFarland creations, American Dad being the sole exception... f*** that guy.

I think my favorites programming associated with [as] would have to be:

Home Movies (I first saw this show the night adult swim premiered back in '01. I fell in love with the "realness" of the mumbling, fumbling dialog immediately, which was extremely exciting and novel to me back then)
Mission Hill (short but sweet)
Tim & Eric ASGJ/Tom Goes To The Mayor
Xavier: Renegade Angel
Moral Orel
12 oz. Mouse
Boondocks
Venture Bros
etc.

There are actually very few shows on the network I've not been able to appreciate on some level... I even started liking the much-maligned "Fat Guy Stuck In Internet" around the end of the series' initial run. Now that they've started airing it again, it's actually better than I remember.

As for the Britcoms they've picked up, Darkplace and LAY spring to mind most immediately.

Not a big anime person, but Cowboy Bebop was a wonderful, wonderful series.

I also like some of CN's stuff too... Really liked Flapjack. I was pretty upset when it ended, which made me reluctant to get into Adventure Time, but it evenualy won me over. That, and Regular Show.

Not too keen on (most of) their other current programming though.

Other shit:

MSCL (I was actually to other way around from Skylarker... Too young for it when it was on, discovered it later in life and fell in love)
Freaks & Geeks
Monty Python (who doesn't like that?)
Cheers (I used to love the theme song as a kid, but never could get into the show... I really love it now though)
Frasier
Will & Grace (yeah, it's stupid, but I still love it)
The Nanny (even stupider and WAY campier, but I still enjoy it for some reason)
Ab Fab (thanks to Comedy Central for introducing me to that "back in the day")
South Park, before I stopped paying attention years ago
and the aforementioned shows:
Matlock
Murder, She Wrote
GOLDEN GIRLS!!!

Exploitation/Trash TV I watch obsessively and yell at the TV in astonishment and murderous disgust while doing so:

The Real Housewives of __________
My Super-Sweet 16
MTV in general (on rare occasions, they actually have a quality "True Life" episode every now and then)
Hoarders
Intervention

I am a bit of a masochist... I don't know why else I would watch those awful f***ing shows.

I'm sure I will remember plenty more later.

There's probably a ton of others and I don't watch them all now, even the current ones. And some of them I have watched over the years because other family members have, like the soap operas, and I got sucked in. :D I went through an eight year period where I didn't even own a television. I do now though. :p I think of all of them, I have seen more episodes of Law and Order than any other. LOVE that show. Dunk dun...

It's about atheist geeky star wars fans and nerdy science stuff. Most people don't really get the jokes. I rarely watch TV and I only saw few episodes, quite liked it but the actors are slightly annoying.

i think shows like 'the wire', and 'the sopranos' are works of art. these two aside, most of the shows i enjoy are comedies; i'm a big fan of 'louie', which is the brainchild of the one and only louis ck (probably my favourite US comic); 'stewart lee's comedy vehicle' is amazing as well, along with 'south park', the british 'office', 'the boosh', harry hill's 'tv burp', and 'the inbetweeners'.
