What We're Thankful for: TV Squad Staff Picks

by AOL TV Staff, posted Nov 24th 2010 2:00PM

As Thanksgiving approaches, we're all reminded to take a step back and appreciate the things in our lives we're most grateful for. We're also reminded of how someone should really stop Aunt Maude from pouring that third glass of chardonnay -- but mostly we're reminded of the good stuff.

In the spirit of the holiday, the TV Squad staff has plenty of television-related thanks to give this year. Read on for our choices -- you might even pick up some suggestions for your annual post-turkey "I'm so full I can't leave this couch" TV marathon tomorrow.

Which Star Would You Follow to Any Show?

Sherry Stringfield, David Cross, Elizabeth Mitchell and Michael C. HallConfession: I fell head-over-heels for Sherry Stringfield when she was on 'ER.' I was heartbroken when she left in season 3 and delighted when she came back in season 8.

Or there's a character you like but you tune out when they're not on screen. As Chris Harnick noted about 'White Collar' last night, "I was entertained by it, but there wasn't enough to keep me tethered to the couch."

Sadly, for me, 'The Office' has become a laundry show. This past season was often mediocre, and I found my attention wandering during episodes -- to the point where I'd peruse my issue of Time Out New York to look for fun stuff to do over the weekend.

So, I polled the TV Squad team to see which shows they watch while doing housework (we disallowed reality TV shows since they're sort of built to be that way). Find out what they named as their "laundry shows" ...

All good things must come to an end, as the proverb says. And as the end of 'Lost' draws painfully near, we here at TV Squad took a look back -- all the way to the very beginning -- to choose our favorite episodes from the show we collectively obsessed over..

We also asked the show's executive producers, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, to name their favorite episodes before their TimesTalk panel discussion in New York City last night. To see which ones they chose, plus our staff picks, read on ...
