Maybe if everyone could get Turn A, would that help the shows status any?

We are drowing in "family drama" and "comedy" shows, IMO. To me, most of
these comedy's aren't that funny, are just for lack of a better word, stupid.
Then WB and a few others, show these "teen drama" shows. Ick!

X-Files is good and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer seems to be pretty cool, though
I've only seen bits and pieces of episodes, there's really not many US TV
shows I care about. I like ZD TV's shows(computer channel), I like DigiMon
and somehow, for some odd reason, have stuck with Power Rangers since the
beginning, I like Batman Beyond ando Beast Machines.

I can't seem to find any good action and/or adventure TV shows on US cable
TV. Of course, I watch Gundam Wing :)

Other then what I mentoined, unless I am missing any other good shows that I
am unaware of, I am not much pleased with US TV right now. I have a lot of
book series that I like a lot and am very pleased with most anime I have
seen(Flame of Recca, Gundam, Escaflowne, Evangelion, Gai Gao Gar, others I
forget the names of).
