Here is my list of favorite television (TV) shows that I've watched over the past decade or so. Mostly I watch while working out. The problem with Netflix lists is that it keeps track of what you want to see, rather than what you've seen. So it's hard to mine Netflix for a list of recommendations for your friends.

What I'm watching Now

  • Person of Interest (netflix)
  • The Americans (Amazon)

Top Rated

These are my all-time favorites

Live Action

  • Alias
  • Battlestar Galactica (new version, although I enjoyed the original when I was in high school)
  • Continuum
  • Dark Matter
  • Dollhouse
  • Heroes
  • Lost Girl (NSFW)
  • Nikita
  • The Event (Netflix, 1 season only)
  • Sherlock (Until the last season)
  • Torchwood (Until the last season)
  • Travelers (Netflix)


  • Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
  • Ghost in the Shell Arise 3
  • Evangelion
  • Noir
