James Marshall's Television Page

Watching television is always a nice way to relax, and of course I have some favorites when it comes to TV programs. Some of the other pages on this site could include TV as well (e.g., with sports), but at least for now, I've limited this part to a few main areas: anime and other television shows.


I've enjoyed watching cartoons since I was a kid and still watch some such as Family Guy and South Park. For the most part though, I now tend to watch Japanese animation, often just called anime, and mainly online. The main thing I like about anime is that they have shows that target adults, not just children or families, and the shows that cover more mature topics can be very interesting. But on television, I typically watch anime shown on some of the Adult Swim programming blocks of Cartoon Network (CN), if not repeats or shows I've seen elsewhere. AnimeBoards.com is a nice web board for anime discussions, but I'm not active there anymore. You can use Anime on TV to help you find out when and where anime shows are airing in the US and Canada. There are lots of anime related sites, and I usually find myself at Anime News Network (ANN) or and AnimeNfo.Com when I want details on series and shows, but AnimeOnDVD.com has useful information as well. You might also be interested in the Pirate Anime FAQ for details about how to spot illegal anime merchandise of all types. It's possible to watch anime online as well, and this is my main source of anime now. My favorite place to watch anime online is Crunchyroll, which simulcasts many of the series currently airing in Japan, and supplement it with Hulu's offerings, which includes some simulcasts. More rarely I watch anime at company sites like Funimation's Videos, Manga.com, and VIZ Anime, or other anime sites like ANN's video section. In addition, I have a Netflix membership and rent (mostly) anime DVDs from there.

Other Television

This could be a huge category, but I'll try to keep it on the short side by giving a small amount of links and information on some other specific shows, types of shows, and/or channels I like (or did like) watching. These include: British comedies on TV (I like many of the shows listed in this Wikipedia article); some science fiction, specifically Doctor Who (mainly with the older Doctors); Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) (see also MST3K on Wikipedia) which isn't on TV anymore, but is being brought back via Kickstarter!, it was a great show and has many episodes online (see Where to See MST3K Episodes); some of the cooking shows on Food Network like Good Eats (a fan page) and the original Japanese version of Iron Chef (also a fan page); Ninja Warrior and Unbeatable Banzuke; and a number of programs on NHK World like J-MELO; some sports (this is one of my pages). Related to Doctor Who, I have my own scarf (thanks, Mom!) and used to have patterns on my site, but will now instead point you to this Doctor Who Scarf site for information on making your own; rumor has it that these are the BBC's official(?) instructions.
