American TV Shows that are Hot or Not for (one) Kuwaiti Viewer

One Kuwaiti blogger lends us his navigator around the latest fads in American TV; When fishing from Gaza drags up something bigger and nastier than your average fish; And why Libya plumping for an Islamic state contravenes democracy in 'this' case.
American TV is fast becoming the new and to some extent intellectual-cultural medium replacing radio and book-reading: The Wire - highly acclaimed- is now being studied at university level.
Parks and Recreation
American Horror Story
The Ultimate Fighter....
Watching when I have nothing else to watch
Bored of and hating
Still need to watch or get back into
Bored to Death
Not a fan of
The Big Bang Theory....
I saw an Israeli naval warship for the first time yesterday, a concrete monster the color of ash, guzzling up the Mediterranean and spurting it out in its wake.
I rose early to go out with the Oliva, a small white boat used by Civil Peace Service (CPS) Gaza to monitor the Israeli navy’s conduct vis-à-vis Palestinian fisherman.
Many of the captive audience to this much-anticipated moment were surprisde that some of these Islamic elements were addressed and decreed straight from the Martyr Square liberty speech:
"It’s hardly surprising that Libya is heading in a more religious direction — the vast majority of Libyans are conservative Muslims, after all — but what is somewhat alarming is the way Abdel Jalil simply decreed these things from the podium. If Libyans want to outlaw interest and bring back polygamy, fine, but let them do so in a democratic and transparent way: Write a new constitution and let the country vote on it."
