Gamer TV

As we all know, gaming is just part of an overall geek package of entertainment that all, for some reason, resonates with us nerds.  Our gaming group talks a lot about what TV, movies, webcomics, webseries, etc. we are into, and I took a quick survey and figured I’d share with y’all, so you can find out about any geek friendly entertainment you don’t know about!  Out of 5 gamer geek responses to “what shows do you watch regularly,” it’s:

  • Dollhouse x5
  • Big Bang Theory x4
  • Fringe x3
  • Sanctuary x3
  • Castle x2
  • Chuck x2
  • Heroes x2
  • 30 Rock x2
  • Family Guy x2
  • Venture Brothers x2
  • Modern Family x2
  • How I Met Your Mother x2
  • Sons of Anarchy (on hiatus) x2
  • Simpsons
  • American Dad
  • Daily Show/Colbert Report
  • Clone Wars (on hiatus)
  • Warehouse 13 (on hiatus?)
  • Legend of the Seeker
  • Supernatural
  • House
  • Better Off Ted
  • Bored to Death
  • Ugly Betty
  • Defying Gravity (on hiatus)
  • Damages (starting again soon)
  • NFL
  • The Middle

If it got 2+ votes, it means “if you’re a gamer you should take a look and see if you like it, there’s a quite good chance you will.”

And a special shout out to (semi-)new channels Chill and Sleuth.  As SyFyLys has decided to show wrestling and ghost chaser shows rather than anything meaningfully SF, those two channels will often have something good on.

And some pans… About everyone in the group used to watch them some Stargate of one or more flavors, but now NO ONE mentioned it.  I know for a fact some people watch SG: Atlantis still (when it’s on) but I thought it was interesting no one remembered to mention it.  I’m pretty sure people are under-reporting above based on group conversations, but I think ones that came to peoples’ mind to write down on their list reflect the ones they enjoy more.  Also, no one said “all the weird Battlestar: Galactica spinoff crap they drizzle out.”  Despite everyone watching BSG faithfully of course.  And some people have stuck with Heroes, but no one has stuck with Lost.

  1. How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Daily Show, Big Bang Theory and Supernatural are the only ones on the list I currently watch. Castle is my new favorite show, I got the DVDs for Season 1 and have watched them several times.
    I dropped Heroes after the storyline started wandering aimlessly.
    I plan to pick up season 1 of Warehouse 13 and Fringe.

  2. Fringe is my fav on this list, though I find myself watching many of these. I’m really impressed with Castle, especially because I didn’t think I’d like it. I tried to get into Warehouse 13 and Chuck, but it didn’t happen, both are a little too cute for me. Although, Dollhouse is getting pretty cool now, and I thought I was going to have to give up on that one too, so who knows, maybe they’ll get better.

  3. I guess I’ll have to try Fringe; I was always turned off by the commercials, seemed like “X-Files Part 2.”

    And sadly you’re too late with Dollhouse, it’s over. But worth watching if you didn’t see it all.

  4. Big Bang theory will be an all time favorite . Followed Fringe like crazy for a while. Followed Dollhouse for a bit especially cause of Eliza Dushku ! Chuck was awesome too for a while ofcourse. Thinking of checking out a few more listed above .
