Dexter is the greatest TV show ever created. There is never a dull moment. I would sell my soul for that kind of writing ability.

Gotta love adventure time too. Also a big fan of Naruto, and try to catch Walking Dead if I can.

I totally agree with you there. Season 4 is the best season for me, well except for the part where

Ahh, but
having important characters die shows that no-one is safe. That means ANYTHING can happen,
which makes the show even more exciting.

I know, that's what makes the show more ummm... lovable? XD

It was just that everything was like going oh so good and then BAM.

May I just ask if you liked Miguel Prado from season 3?

Hmm... I didn't like the guy, but the whole idea of that character was interesting. I like that I couldn't quite figure him out completely. And it was hard to say what was going to happen between him and Dexter.

Game of Thrones!! (I'm a big fan of the books, and I adore the tv version, it actually made me like characters I didn't like before)

...Like Dexter, it is also a show in which ANYTHING can happen.

I liked the first season of Dexter very much, by the way. I still think those are my favourite opening credits. :)

Sometimes I watch HIMYM reruns at the office, but don't tell anyone. :)

...I'm not active as in writing fanfic/drawing fanart though.
I've always been more active in rpg fandoms. ^^

Don't watch too many TV shows lately, however I do enjoy watching Mujeres Asesinas (The Mexican version) which may be getting a US adaptation.
Fun fact: the butterfly in my avy is from the show.

Yeah, the show got various adaptations: one for Spain and one for Italy. And yep, las condenadas may soon be making their debut on English-speaking television.
And yes, Mexico did get an adaptation. Haven't watched it though ^^;

While there have been many series that I liked, there are few where I can say that I am a real fan. Like Doctor Who. I'll watch it when it's on television, but I'll never actively search for it.

That said, I loved Stargate Universe and Merlin (BBC). Although the latter is sometimes not actually that good, it has charmed me!
I also saw and really liked Psych, but they've only broadcasted one season here. I'm thinking of trying to find the rest. From a long time ago I also remember Carnivale, but that got discontinued unfortunately. :/
There's also this new series named Alcatraz I've seen a few episodes of that were quite good. If it continues like this, I'll become a fan. :P

I've always wanted to watch Dexter, but never found an opportunity.

If we can include Japanese TV shows, then it will definitely be Super Sentai and Kamen Rider Series. My brother have all the toys (the mecha, transformation belts, etc). I guess I was influenced by him... I'm actually more to anime type.

I'm following Elementary (CBS), Arrow (The CW), and Beauty and the Beast (The CW). The first, because I love Sherlock Holmes and they've cast Lucy Liu to be Watson. It feels awesome to know there's an Asian American woman playing a major role on an American TV show. Arrow I like because (shirtless) Stephen Amell and it's nice to see a comic book hero get the live action treatment.

Beauty and the Beast, I've been interested in for camp factor because the first three episodes were kind of awful to me, but according to E!Online, people are beginning to rate it more highly... it's confusing. I guess I should play catch up.

Is there some kind of requirement to be *in* a fandom? Or if you're just a fan of a show, are you automatically considered a part of that fandom?
The word fandom has really confused me ever since I first heard it. >.>
Anyway, I don't watch TV... I occasionally watch Food Network or Tennis Channel or something, but yeah...
Even when I do watch anime, I don't discuss it with anyone usually. I may draw fanart or buy things associated with that anime, but I usually keep my interest in it to myself. So I guess I'm not part of any fandom...
