What I am Currently Watching  
I've been watching some TV, though not necessarily talking about it. I thought I'd just give a run down of some of the shows I've been watching. I'm not one to watch much TV, so mind you, this isn't all at once. Beware spoilers for anything that has aired, obviously. Many of these I just watch casually from time to time.

Supernatural: Still my favorite show. I don't talk about it much because there's a lot of negativity out there, and I'd rather just be happy. LJ is my place to escape and watching TV is an escape for me. I'd rather just have fun and enjoy myself than get involved in all the arguments out there.

I still think, despite it being its 7th season, the show is high quality. The quality is much higher than other long-running shows I've watched in the past, which says a lot. I understand some people don't like it anymore or say it's showing it's age, but as long as the cast and crew care, the quality is there for me. You can usually tell on a show when the actors have stopped caring and start phoning it in. At least that hasn't happened here. I'll be going back and talking about some of the eps soon. But man. Breaks my heart! *wibble*

Community: This is a good show. My brother watches it, so I watch with him. It reminds me a lot of the show Psych, but parodying things in a different way. The characters are funny, as are the unbelievable situations, and I love the actors and how they deliver their lines. Troy is the best and I can't stop cracking up how the actor plays him. He's naive, but a jock-turned-geek. What's not to love? His scenes with Abed are the best. I can't find any really decent videos with his lines (or Abed's) so this is the closet I could get:

Psych: I've been watching this on Netflix and quite enjoying it. There's a definate tone change between the first seasons versus the later seasons, but I've enjoyed them both. I had actually given this show a try a few years ago, and hated it. Funny how that works.

This the first season I've watched it live, and I admit I am not enjoying it that much. Not at the same level anyway. It has nothing to do with Juliet and Shawn either. I think maybe just watching it as it airs? It's a different experience than watching it whenever I want. So I don't know. I just found it strange that I haven't quite been into it as much as before.

White Collar: I just started watching this one when I have a spare moment and so far it's not bad. I don't have much to say about it just yet aside from the fact I liked the lead guy's eyes! Heh heh.

Once Upon a Time: I've been watching this show since it started. It's certainly not the best show I've seen, and the format is just Lost all over again, but it's enjoyable enough to watch. I'm not sure how long I'll stay with it, but I do like what they are doing with the real world versions of the fairy tale characters enough to have me tune in every week. You can tell it's made for a general audience and that's fine. We'll see where it goes. :)

And that's it for TV. I wanted to go more in depth, but I'm still feeling sick so I am going to stop for now.

I liked Season 6. There are a lot of things I didn't like and places I feel the writers made some missteps, but it had an intriguing mystery element to it and I loved the monster angle.

That said, S7 is leaps above it in quality. I'm really enjoying this season. Sure, it's not S1 or S2. But the show still has its heart and soul and I can't say that about many shows that are this old.

Yeah it's the same for me. Season 6 wasn't so terrible as many said but it surely wasn't the best season ever either. It had its moments and its missteps (one of the best moments is surely the one of your icon..i loved that episode!)

And definitly season 7 is better than season 6 for now. Of course the quality is not the same of many years ago but it's still better than most shows out there.
