There is a military channel in the U.S. It is owned by the Discovery Network. Typical shows will be on aircraft, modern warfare, historical documentaries on past wars, military training, things like that. They have some good programs. I like the ones featuring military aircraft.

Here is their website.

You know when I am flipping thru the channels looking for something to watch, I still find myself watching Andy Griffin now and then.

The Andy Griffith Show is a personal favorite of my whole family. It shows how great writing and an ensemble cast of great actors can make a timeless classic. Same thing with the Dick Van Dyke Show, Mary Tyler Moore, Cheers, Seinfeld, etc. I love all those shows.

We don't have the History Channel, Travel Channel or Military Channel yet, but our rinky-dink cable company was just purchased by Comcast so I'm hoping we'll have them soon. CSI (original) and Criminal Minds are two I'll stay up for and I'll watch most of what they have on TLC and Discovery (as long as it's not the godawful Jon and Kate plus 8, can't stand that show for some reason). Wife will keep in on the SciFi channel all day if it wouldn't cause a mutiny.

I also like Star Trek - all version, although I have been enamored of Voyager the past couple of years. My favorite character is "the doctor". We didn't get the series locally when it was new, so I now am seeing it for the first time on Directv.

The Travel Channel was recently dropped by TWC. A local protest is sure to ensue. I like the old shows too, especially Andy Griffith. It is a rare treat to see one that I've not seen before. While home for lunch last week I watched an episode of "Leave it to Beaver" just because it was on. What a different world that was. Seinfeld is an all time favorite as well. Other than a brief stint at trying to figure out if Desperate Housewives was a drama or a comedy, I like the CSI and courtroom type shows when I can watch.

Seinfeld is my all time favourite. Have the complete DVD collection. I also liked Frasier, Friends. Of the US series on air right now I must admit I like Grey's Anathomy (even though I'm not a female nurse )

During our recent vacation in the Philippines, I watched "No reservations" on the Travel and Living channel and found it very interesting, as well as the "Take home chef" (or something like that. Unfortunately we don't have Travel and living channel in our cable network.

I only watch two shows on television. I always watch Jeopardy (you wouldn't know it but I was a contestant on Jeopardy college week back in 1991) The only other show on television that interests me is Family Guy. I am very anti-politically correct so I enjoy watching a show that only serves to make fun of about 99.9% of society.

So many shows, including Andy Griffith, go from great to mediocre when one cast member leaves. Griffith was never that good after Don Knotts left. I don't think Seinfeld would have had that problem, as long as Jerry didn't leave. If Elaine, George, even Kramer, had left, the show still would have been good.
