Most of the shows I had heard of but not seen and a couple of the shows I'm not sure I've even heard of. Combine that with the fact that the only shows I emboldened are scifi and this blog entry tells you that I am a geek and I actively avoid watching the "hot" shows that "everyone" talks about. Maybe I should branch out, ut I'm not going to. Why not? Because this is what I envision when I go to heaven:

1. The complete DVD sets of all seasons of Star Trek, Farscape, Babylon 5, and Firefly along with the entire broadcast history of Jeopardy.
2. Any yarn I want in any fiber, weight, and colorway.
3. Any knitting needle I want in any material and length.
4. Every romance novel in existence, written or to-be-written.

An eternity of knitting, excellent TV, and my reading genre of choice? Utter perfection! Except for the fact that I'd be dead. But I'm mortal, so that's okay.

I love seing people's lists... just a comment, it's kind of hard to see what you have in bold, maybe it's just my monitor but I really can't see it.
