Excuse my ignorance, Cindy but what exactly s TiVO? I don't know if we have it in Australia. Is it like cable?
It's kinda like a no tape video recorder thing. You probably do have it there. It's out here but not very easy to find. It kind of died off after the initial launch, I think Sky (Foxtel down there) kind of took over with the digital services

Well there isn`t much that gets my attention these days but there is one show that gets my vote NCIS i don`t know how many of you have watched this but the lead character happens to be played by none other that David Addisons old nemisis Sam aka Mark Harmon.
You can probably guess by the title what the show is about. And i also like that there is this little love/hate thing going on between two of the supporting characters, kinda reminds me of David and Maddie -only a lot less steam!.
Have to agree 100% Laura! I love NCIS. The plots are always interesting and have a good twist to them. MarK Harmon's dry humour appeals to me enormously and the other characters are also well drawn and have different layers to them. Also, how many shows from America boast a goth and such an endearing one at that! Did you see the one when it was Abby's birthday and they all bought her bunches of black roses! LOL.

Yeah i did see that one Funkycat,
I thought it was funny the fact that she had them all stacked up in her lab fridge and at the end when Abby said to Gibbs he`d forgotten her birthday but he hadn`t and told her to check the drawer and low and behold there was her present but what was it , we never got to see what was inside . Anyway the one i watched last night also revolved around Abby too ( how freaky) Although my favourite characters are Tony ( Denozo ) I think that`s how you spell it , and Zeva ( again not sure if i got that spelling right eitther) I think here is another couple with great chemistry potential as long as it`s harnessed right.

A new show that has captured my attention is on A&E called Gene Simmons' Family Jewels. Gene is one of the founders of the rock group KISS and is famous for his rather long tongue that he shares with audiences world wide. He has cohabitated with former Playmate of the Year Shannon Tweed for almost 20 years. He refuses to marry her, but in reality they are hitched. It is hilarious. What is amazing is how normal their two kids grew up.
I'm not watching this show...but it's beating the best programs on portuguse TV. The show's name is "Floribella". It's a mix of a fairy tale but in a "modern" way. (more like "Cindrella's Story") It's so popular then even in Portugal we see lots of girls dressing like the girl of the TV. Oh God. The shows in Portugal are not like old times....
The "enemy" of this show "Starwberrys with Sugar" (showing in other channel) is still "alive" and it's also one of the best popular portuguse TV shows.
