CRIMINAL MINDS FANATIC'S QUESTION OF THE DAY.


Criminal Minds: Many Criminal Minds fans use repeat season to catch up on other shows or try shows they haven't watched before. What have you been watching this summer?

I spent last summer catching up on Without a Trace and Cold Case, and discovering Monk and the Closer. I decided not to get addicted to any more TV this past year so I only watched Monk and The Closer.

rachie said...

I've been catching up on "Law and Order: SVU". I had taped it but this season I am going to put it back on my small to watch list. It is still wonderful.

anne said...

A friend turned me on to Las Vegas. She handed me a stack of vhs tapes and told me to give it a try. It is wonderful and I plan on watching it this season. I really recommend it to everyone.

gita said...

"Heroes" is great. I tivoed it but only now have had time to watch it. Everyone needs to take a peek at it. You'll be hooked.

lynda said...

Heroes and Boston Legal for me. Almost totally caught up.

asher said...

I am in love with "Heroes". I think you all should try it out.

Anonymous said...

without a trace and monk are very good but boston legal wins hands down for me so light and refresimng to watch and you have such a wonderful cast and the work of david e.kelley say no more.

leslie said...

I found "Grey's Anatomy" thanks to a friend who taped it and it is really good. I'm thinking of giving it a try this new season.

eden said...

Hey try Ugly Betty. Awesome show.

ginger said...

I have rekindled my passion for "ER" and I intend to switch my tivo recordings to make that my number one show. As old as it is it still has it going on!

jolie said...

Cold Case which I am sorry to say seemed to lose its zip this past season and I have taken a shine to 24.

tracie said...

Without a Trace is great and I am almost caught up on that which is cool since my tivo is almost too full.

Another goodie is Boston Legal which I am sorry that I did not watch live this past season. I like the show.

Seng said...

Actually, Criminal Minds is what I accidentally started watching this summer since my regular shows are on break. I'm waiting for the new season of Nip/Tuck!

danielle said...

I am watching Brothers and Sisters and you can get totally caught up on all the episodes on the network's website. I totally recommend the show. Watch it on your computer!

melanie said...

Scrubs, Ugly Betty and SVU rock!

kara said...

I am currently watching "Boston Legal" and "24". I am also trying "Las Vegas" but I am not sure yet if it is something I will watch in the fall. Maybe.

edwina said...

I definately recommend "Heroes". It is such an inspiring and well written show.

angelninjagirl said...

PSYCH!!! Absolutely love James Roday and Dule Hill! Great show that shows the lighter side of a "crime drama" with Shawn's crazy antics. Plus I love that it's new over the summer because then it doesn't overlap with Numb3rs too much during the normal season.

Any one up for some pineapple? ^_^

louisa said...

Try "Friday Night Lights".

I caught up on House, since it was on the same time as LO:CI last season. I rented movies, we do not go to them when they are in the theater. I think I have given up on Without a Trace, which is sad, but it was never on at the right time because of football and I never got the whole show on my DVD recorder, because the start time was always a mess.

joyce sneakin in said...

Without a Trace, Monk, Psych, Burn Notice, Cold Case, CSI:Miama

But most of all "CSI:New York"...

BECAUSE I THINK DET. FLACK IS DROP DEAD HANDSOME & I WANT TO BE ARRESTED BY HIM SOMETIME!!!

(Actually he reminds me of Hotchner. My hubby and I refer to Flack as "Gibson's brother").

madison said...

I started watching tapes of House. It really is fantastic. Love it. I also thought Without a Trace was flat this season so I started watching Grey's Anatomy which I tape all the time.

The Boss said...

Greys anatomy is brilliant (Dr Mac Dreamy - yummy!!!)
I like Missing without a trace - a good show .

evie said...

I have become a "Desperate Housewives" junkie this summer. I only had tivo recording it to satisfy a nagging friend but I am hooked on it now. It is mindless but addictive.

alice said...

I will confess that I have turned on and into a real Greys fan this summer. It tops my vcr list for the new season.

Anonymous said...

Summer is my time to lower my standards and watch "reality" television...
Hell's Kitchen, Wife Swap, ANTM...

kimmie said...

I have been rekindling my love of the Law & Order shows:

SVU
The original
Criminal Intent

addison said...

"Vegas" is a keeper in my book!

diana said...

I've been trying to get into "Grey's Anatomy" because I liked it but had stopped watching. Their spin-off sounds great to me so I am catching up on the original.

rebecca said...

I've been watching So You Think You Can Dance. I love that show. The results show was on the same time as CM, so I haven't really been watching too many of the CM reruns.

I also love ER and Brothers & Sisters!

ruth said...

I stopped watching CM repeats since I have seen them tons of times and I am hooking into:

Scrubs
24 ****love it!
Heroes
Without a Trace

shelby said...

LOCI has my seal of approval. I have found my love for the show again.

allie said...

Easy one, yeah:

My name is Earl
Reruns of Everyone loves Raymond
SVU
Las Vegas
CSI, Miami-I had taped the entire season without watching it. Loving it.

booth said...

Bones

maxie said...

Has anyone tried Weeds? It seems like a good show.

PS..thanks Stacy!

manriqua said...

I like "24", "Entourage" and "Top Chef" which my neighbor tapes. It works out we trade tapes with the show that the other person doesn't normally watch. I am hoping she will give Criminal Minds a chance this season.

charlie said...

I really like Miami Ink and I don't know why. :(

Anonymous said...

House
SVU

mona said...

I'm watching repeats of CM since I had never seen some of them. I am also watching repeats of SVU and 24.

steven said...

The Hills, Without a Trace and CM.

celeste said...

I am suggesting: Heroes and 24.

henri said...

"Weed" is awesome and you all should give it a glance.

shannon said...

Brothers & Sisters is really good. My husband hates it but I love it. Also, I like Without a Trace & Boston Legal.

jeanne said...

HOUSE RULES!!

aimee said...

I'm in love with "Monk" which luckily I taped. My friend is recommending SVU which I had stopped watching but and I think I will give it another try.

PAOLAFROMPARIS said...

THE CLOSER!!!!! I LLLLLLLLOVE that show!!!

And then, of course all the eps. of CM over and over again.

cindy said...

Law & Order, Heroes, Ugly Betty and My Name is Earl.

janet said...

I've been watching a few shows that I had given up on this past year and now I think I am sorry that I did. I don't know why I stopped watching SVU because it is great. I am so glad that I realized it. I also am semi hooked again on ER.

noah said...

Law & Order, the original one.

Grey's Anatomy

Weeds

24

Cold Case

jazz said...

I confess that I'm watching "Friends" repeats. Color me old!

Jan and Quentin said...

Jan: Cold Case, House, CSI (orig.), WAT, maybe The Closer.

Quentin: Anything on Animal Planet, esp. "Poodles Gone Wild!"

jackson said...

I'm watching all the movies I taped the last few months and did not have the time to watch. It is a nice break from episodic tv.

nancy said...

Grey's A, Las Vegas, LOCI and 24.

laurel said...

I'm watching the odd episode of SVU and I am reading all the books and articles that I was too busy to read a few months ago. It is nice to have the house quiet when the kids are asleep and just read without the tv on. I'm really enjoying the quiet. I never realized that I was averaging about three hours of tv a night until I turned it off. My husband is still watching whatever the sport of the week is but it is still really quiet.

erica said...

24

debra said...

Wow. So many people have listed 24. I am going to check it out. I've watched a few episodes of some of the Law & Order shows which are always great. I tried Monk but it wasn't for me. I watch an occasional CM repeat. I guess I am not really watching very much tv now. Maybe when the kids go back to school.

paula said...

We really loved 24 this season. I taped all of it and we are rewatching it.

hannah said...

I recommend that everyone give "Heroes" a chance and watch at least a few episodes.

Jacqui said...

off season for CM is on season for a lot of SciFi shows, so I'm spending the summer watching Eureka and Doctor Who. I'm also watching a lot of ABC Family, I'm embarrassed to say. I'm addicted to Kyle XY and Greek.

izzy said...

Docter Who is great!

I also like Entourage and Weeds.

colleen said...

I haven't be able to get into Weeds but I am enjoying 24 and watching some of the Law and Order shows.

Jacki said...

Finally got a chance to watch all of Heroes which I now really like. Been loyally watching Entourage, Big Love, and lots of random VH1 and MTV shows. Top Chef and all Bravo shows are always favorites.

adrienne said...

I am watching a lot of the cooking shows right now. New ones and repeats. I am ever hopeful that I can learn to cook someday plus they are really fun to watch.

april said...

I really enjoy Monk and I have found 24 recently which is also really good.

kendra said...

Cold Case
Entourage
Boston Legal

These are all great for summer or fall viewing.

Kristin. said...

Without A Trace is a good one to catch up on in the summer, because I find its on at a weird time during the season. I love, love, LOVE Poppy Montgomery's character, Sam Spade!

debra said...

I love Boston Legal. It was not one of my regular shows but it is now.

dearlydead said...

I have been watching movies, and my DVR recordings of CM, 24, and The Unit (a smorgasborg of buff men).
37 days until CM! Oh!
-DD

P.S. Thank you, Shemar! ;)

Anonymous said...

At the risk of sounding slightly nerdy... I am addicted to discovery channel's "dirty jobs" and "Mythbusters". Interesting, and ya learn to really respect some peoples' jobs! lol

~ANGIE

jane said...

I like Discovery channel too. I have been watching some Ugly Betty and some Closer.

curtis said...

The Unit, 24, Grey's and sometimes I throw in a tape from SVU. I am still taping it.

rosalind said...

Is it just me or does it seem like a lot of shows were canceled this season?

I am watching dvds instead of tv. I stocked up this year as dvds went on sale and this is my time to kick back after work and watch them.

lacey said...

Grey's Anatomy has really grown on me too. I am looking forward to the spin off this season. I think it is going to be great if they do it right.

taylor said...

House
Entourage
SVU
Closer
Will & Grace repeats
Studio 60 repeats
Cold Case

esther said...

"Heroes" and "Entourage".

caole said...

A friend loaned me her season one CM dvds so I am catching up on those and I am also catching up on Without a Trace.

gregg said...

I like channel surfing until I find something that interests me.

amanda said...

Loving Brothers and Sisters.

anna maria said...

Shark
Nip/Tuck
House
Bones

tim said...

House, house, house!

dina said...

Bones and House VHS for me!

judiebuk said...

I'm using the 'down time' to catch up on Supernatural. I tried to get into Heroes, but was always too busy to properly get into the storylines.

I like Bones and Without a trace as well, and I'm going to catch up with Ghost whisperer at some point and give that a shot.

respectanimals said...

Other than my soap opera (The Young and the Restless) I don't think I have watched one single television show this entire summer. Instead I have been watching movies on DVD, old Chicago Hope episodes (as I had never seen the show before), and rewatching Dead Like Me and of course Criminal Minds episodes. Unfortunately I am not terribly excited by the new shows starting up this Fall, but I am definitely looking forward to new episodes from my current favorites (Criminal Minds, CSI NY, Numbers, Heroes and The Tudors). I even plan on giving my old favorite CSI Miami another chance. I've watched 24 faithfully for years, but that show lost me last season, as they just went too over-the-top for me.

Lori said...

I have been watching:

The Closer
Monk
Psych
What Not To Wear
HGTV shows
