Well, I haven’t jumped on one of these bandwagons in a while. Here is my Friday Five, all about television:

  1. What’s your favorite TV show and why?
    Not including football? I’d say Law & Order or Law & Order: SVU. Law & Order: CI is decent, but I’ve only caught it once. I just started watching L&O a month or so ago and it’s excellent. There are a decade or so of re-runs that are all “new to me”, so I dig it. I don’t mean to sound like one of the herd, but I’ll add that West Wing, The Sopranos, and Six Feet Under are all absolutely incredible.
  2. Who is your favorite television star?
    … <blinks> … I don’t really know. I used to think George Clooney was cool on ER. Does that count?
  3. What was your favorite TV show as a child?
    I’d guess SuperFriends, G.I. Joe, or anything with Wile E. Coyote.
  4. What show do you think should have been cancelled by now?
    I’m amazed that ER and Friends are still alive, but I don’t think either should have been canceled. Frasier, though. That would be my choice. I just don’t think it’s funny any more.
  5. What new show do you hope escapes the axe this season?
    I really can’t say. I don’t think I watch any “new” shows.
