Republic of Doyle, Little Britain, Hell's Kitchen, and Eat Street.

Eat Street never came on until I discovered I could access more American channels on my box.

I'm not a big TV person. I do like some of the court shows and some cooking shows. I really like the cooking/food shows on PBS. But I also like Chopped, Master Chef and Hell's Kitchen. I also like Restaurant Impossible and Hotel Impossible. And I like Hoarders/Hoarding.

And I like Hoarders/Hoarding.

What is it about that show? I don't go looking for it, but when it's on, I can't stop watching . . . maybe it just makes me feel better about the amount of clutter that I have :ph34r:

Project Runway and Top Chef.

I love hoarders too! I always feel like cleaning after watching. LOL My hubby won't watch it..I think they could do an episode in his garage? ;)

Really like the Restaurant impossible, Can this Bar Be Saved, and Hotel Impossible. Like all of the CSI type shows and Law and Order..and looking forward to the new season, 2 Broke Girls( I forgive them for making such yummy sounding cupcakes :D ),Big Bang Theory, Newsroom (new series on HBO),Good Wife, Antiques Road Show, Ricky Gervaise show (Karl Pilkington is so simple)LOL

Remakes don't always live up to the original, but this is really good. I think you and your mom would enjoy it :)

Dallas is like crack (hubs just leaves the room). Am loving The Newsroom. Wish they'd bring back Torchwood. Boss is back - i love it - Kelsey Grammar is excellent.

And let's not forget True Blood. Now that they've completely departed from the books I see it differently - and Russell Edgington is sooo good at being BAD.

DEXTER IS AMAZING!!! Can't wait for season 6 to come out on DVD - I dont have Showtime so I cant watch it when every one else does! I'm also a huge "Friends" fan and can watch it for hours on end without getting sick of it...

Shameless, Dexter, Big C - Showtime addicts here - Weeds was on the list until this season -- it's their last - maybe should have ended a bit earlier.

Dr. Who, Falling Skies, Eureka's first seasons, Firefly

Yeah. I think... We may live in a dump. But it's not that bad!

I've never seen Project Runway. My mom watches that.

Another Dexter fan here. I had to drop Showtime a while ago but they usually have a 'free' weekend before the fall season starts and I plan a day just to watch the whole last season one show after the other. When I win the lottery I want to get the whole series on DVD.

I also really like 'Being Human' both the BBC and American versions. Supernatural is also good. I don't usually watch crime dramas, I've lived to many, but Bones draws me in every now and then.

I never get tired of watching The Big Bang Theory and love reruns of Andy Griffith.

How could I have forgotten Modern Family. The characters are great. I like the big guy, can't remember his name, who used to a clown the best.

    • The first two tests (at least in the US and most of the EU) have been replaced by the DGP tests (at the bottom) of GFinDC's list of celiac tests.  Not all celiacs test positive to the common Screening TTG.   The TTg is good and catches most and it was cheaper to run the best one (it is all about the money), but researchers realized they were not catching all celiacs.  Here is a link to the University of Chicago's celiac website.  When I was diagnosed three years ago, this site recommended just the TTg (as did the American GI Association).  Now they have expanded the list of celiac tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Luckily, my GI must have just attended a GI conference and he ordered the complete panel for me.  ($400). It paid off.  Only my DGP IGA was positive and the rest of the blood panel (including the popular TTG test) was negative.  My biopsies revealed some severe intestinal damage.  My new health provider only allows PCP/GP doctors to only order the TTG.  So, if I want the follow-up testing to see if I have improved or had a gluten exposure, I must go to my New GI.  Yep, it is all about the money!   Keep eating gluten and make sure your  GI takes four to six samples during the endoscopy.  Maintain copies of all your results.   Your symptoms?  Yes, there are over 300 celiac disease symptoms.  celiac disease does not just affect the gut, but mis-informed and those who do not keep up with the latest in medical, do not seem to know that!   Do not give up!  
    • It's great to hear from you, Nightsky.  Glad to also hear of your steady progress.  Living gluten free is definitely a learning process, and even the baby steps are times to celebrate.  Wish you all the luck in the world as you continue to heal for the glutenization.  
    • Hi Nicky, When you first go gluten-free your symptoms often do change.  Feeling better or worse is possible.  The healing process is a major change in our gut and that means a big change in the gut flora is likely,  which can cause symptoms by itself.  Additionally the immune system doesn't stop making antibodies on a dime.  the immune system keeps working  to defeat the gluten invaders until it is darn good and ready to take a break. You really shouldn't start the gluten-free diet until all testing is completed.  That includes a full celiac disease panel and an endoscopy with biopsy samples.  It's much easier to complete testing while still a gluten eater than it is to stop gluten and go  back on it for testing later.
    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
