I just finished the last episode of "24" Season 8 and don't know what to watch? I never watch shows on first broadcast due to the advertisements. I have kept up with "Blue Bloods" this year although we are watching "On Demand". Any Recommendations for Shows on Demand or available via DVD?

The original Perry Mason episodes are great entertainment.

I really enjoyed the 3 seasons (I think) of "Eurika!".

I think that I am a fan of 24 because it is sooo politically incorrect. Having said that, Jack turned into a butcher and president what's-her-face was out of character for most of the time. Dahlia Hussan is totally hot. I was dissappointed that they did not wrap up the loose ends from earlier years - such as the secret society that existed behind the political scenes was left in secret?

I am not familiar with Eureka? What is the main story line?

Actually, Lost is on our short list. We got through the first 2 seasons and faded after that. We might pick that back up.

It's scifi. A lawman is transporting his daughter, who is a felon, across the country, and their car breaks down near the town of Eurika. Eurika turns out to be a strange town inhabited by a lot of strange people. They are all geniuses, working for some strange company, performing weird experiments. It's a town off the map. He gets detained there and ends up being a lawman for the town with his daughter running loose.

I'd rate it as mostly drama, and a little bit comedy.

I quit watching 24 after season 4. It would take me forever to catch up.

Eureka is our favorite show. Very cute and witty.

Californication is my favorite show. It's too raunchy for a family show, but I find it hilarious.

Just started watching Justified, with Timothy Olyphant. I think I like it.

The Big Bang Theory is our new show because it's my buddies favorite, so I had to give it a try. It's about three genius geeks, their 'dumb' engineer side kick and a girl. Cute show, but very geeky.

My girlfriend likes Bones, so by default, I have to watch it. It's like a clever CSI with humor and better characters.

I like Weeds, but no one else in the house dose. I think it's very clever.
