It's way past time for me to respond to all of the votes and wonderful comments and suggestions. You guys are terrific. Thank you all, so much.
What this poll gave me was a strong nudge toward Veronica Mars. I saw the first season on DVD and loved it. I'm missing the second season, partly because I didn't watch the DVD as soon as it came out, but mostly because it airs at the same time as Lost. If Veronica Mars is renewed for a third season, I'll probably review it.
Even though I put it on the poll list, I've done some thinking and I'm not sure I want to review Desperate Housewives. And as much as I love Medium, it may not be for me. Part of the reason is that I don't feel compelled to watch episodes twice and analyze them. I'm still on the fence with Supernatural, too, even though I'm seriously in love with Jensen Ackles. Supernatural started out so-so and has steadily improved. If it keeps acquiring depth and actually does become "Buffy with dudes," I may jump on board later in the game.
Three shows that I keep about thinking about reviewing and will probably get to someday are Six Feet Under, Babylon 5, and Highlander. Maybe not right away, but eventually. They're very much the type of show I review and I've been deeply into all three of them. And they're over, so I won't have a deadline.
I watch 24 and The 4400, but don't feel compelled to review them. I also loved Farscape, but never wanted to watch an episode twice.
Haven't seen yet, but may try on the recommendation of you guys: Weeds, Gilmore Girls, Numb3rs, Prison Break, Grey's Anatomy. I'm afraid Nip/Tuck isn't for me; plastic surgery completely creeps me out.
Have tried, but failed to get into: Charmed, Firefly, Stargate SG1, and Stargate Atlantis. I may try Firefly again because it's Joss Whedon. And I'm planning to give Atlantis another shot when the second season DVD comes out.
Thank you to everyone who voted and/or left a comment.

(Well, sort of important.)
I have every intention of continuing to review Lost and Battlestar Galactica; they're my two favorite shows.
But the end of Alias is approaching on little cat feet, I'm nearly finished with Nikita, and I'm feeling iffy about The Dead Zone. I've started thinking seriously about taking on another show or two. Taking on a new show is a serious commitment of time and effort for me and I can't make any promises, but I don't write in a vacuum and I'd love to know what you'd really like to see on my site.
Here's a list of shows, some current and some not-so-current, that I might consider reviewing. What would you like me to review? Should I just wait until next fall instead and see what grabs me? If the show you're crazy about isn't listed, leave me a comment.
[Note from 2009: This poll was taken down many moons ago, so you can't vote in it. But I wanted to leave the whole thing up anyway. It's interesting from an historical perspective. Plus, lots of comments.]
You may choose more than one answer.
Thank you so much for playing. I love my readers. You're the best.
