Building simplicidade.org: notes, projects, and ocasional rants

What am I watching?

Not only to answer to Rui, but also so that I don't forget, these are the series I'm keeping track of, mostly via DVD's from Amazon.co.uk:

  • House MD;
  • Battlestar Gallactica;
  • 24;
  • The West Wing (waiting for last season, number 7): I'll miss this one;
  • CSI (Las Vegas, Miami, and NY);
  • Without a Trace;
  • Desperate House Wife's;
  • Gilmore Girls (Yes, that one);
  • (sometimes) Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Ordered in terms of my personal preferences at the moment. I might be missing
