    Its a tie between National Geographic and Science channel. Sometimes Discovery Times channel shows you some very interesting antropological programs, and sometimes you get to see interesting military stuff on The Military Channel

    It's pretty close between the History Channel & the Science Channel, since I could only pick one, I went with the Science Channel, some of the programs on The History Channel aren't too interesting.

    No, PBS in this poll?

    After G4 took over TechTV, I quit watching "G4Tech". (I hear they brought back "Call For Help"... I might watch again when I get back.)

    I can't afford cable. :frown:

    But I'm not a big TV watcher anyway, since I spend my evenings after work either in class or studying. Every once in a while there is something I really want to see and someone will record the program for me. My boss was nice enough to record the National Geographic "Extraterrestrial" program for me.

    Hey, why isn't the Sci-Fi Channel on the list. Star Gate (SGI, Atlantis), Battlestar Galatica, Star trek, etc are very educational programs. :tongue2:

    Also, G4Tech should be classified retarded to the 10th power. There is nothing intellectual about the channel.

    What is the USA science channel like? We have something calling itself science, but it shows more pseudoscience, conspiracy theories etc than any other channel.

    I can't pick just one. It just depends on the programs being aired and the subject matter. I also watch a lot of PBS.

    I had to go with National Geographic. Animal Planet is what I watch most, I don't seem to learn much from it, but the AWWWWWW factor of Animal Babies makes me all smiley
