    I also love CSI Miami, I laugh my head off at David Caruso and his lousy acting.

    I've never watched any of the CSIs. The few glimpses I got during some previews and promos made them look more like soap operas or comic strips than police dramas.

    I will agree these are not your typical police dramas. I personally do not mind the comic twist to them as it makes them a little more light hearted and sometimes that makes the episode easier to handle.

    My wife and I watch 99% of the shows together like CSI,S and other mentioned ones as well. One of the shows we like Lights Out seems FX is not renewing according to the Philadelphia Inquirer,s tv critic in this mornings paper,this is a shame well acted and written .

    If true, that IS a shame. I'm really enjoying this one.

    CSI:Miami is bad .. I'd rather watch my fingernails grow than watch CSI:Miami.

    Lights Out is really good. But in my opinion, it has one huge drawback - it is perpetually depressing! I almost gave up on it because nothing good every happens. He NEVER gets a break. Each week, things get worse and worse for him. Every light at the end of each tunnel disappears into the darkness of a worse tunnel.

    You need some fun and laughter and hope to keep people watching.

    That stinks it's canceled and the timing is horrible for me...I just started watching my recordings of season 1 this week and I freaking love it.



    Here's a link confirming it's done: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2011/03/24/fx-cancels-lights-out-131014/20110324fx01/

    I have all but the first 3 episodes of 187 recorded and have never watched it. I will probably just dump it with the comments here. I think this is going to be trend with my dvr's now. I will collect a many new recommended series and wait for the advice of this forum before investing any time in them. Fringe, Event, V and other sci fi type shows excluded.

    I'd watch Detroit 187. They manage to wrap it up pretty well. While the pilot isn't terrific, the show gets a lot better as it goes.

    Actually, if we are going to generalize the favorite target audience for advertisers is males 16-29 with females 18-39 coming in a distant second.

    My wife enjoyed "Deadwood" and she really likes "Justified" which has turned into a character and relationship story (of course they both feature Timothy Olyphant). But we did eliminate "CSI: Miami" when it got so bad you couldn't even do a funny "Mystery Science Theater" type commentary.

    For those who like character development and a focus on a woman as the primary character, tonight on HBO is the premier of "Mildred Pierce," a miniseries adapted from James M. Cain's classic 1941 novel starring Kate Winslet in the title role.

    I would, but I've never heard of most of them! Aside from the CSI one (which appeals to women just as much as men), I'm pretty sure you listed a bunch of cable only shows. That's a microscopic footprint. so, I reiterate, can't we just have our one show?

    I'm trying to figure out why you think "Human Target" is for men. I assume you don't mean "Lie to Me" is for men, as it is one of my wife's top 4 shows.

    Season's finale this week was very good. Somewhat chilling ending. I'm gonna miss Patrick "Lights" Leary ...
