How many TV shows do you actively follow?

Post by let it ride » Sun Oct 26, 2008 21:57

Mine are, completely in order that I remember them:

House
Merlin (increasingly shit)
Desperate Housewives
Gossip Girl
True Blood
Samantha Who?
Heroes
Doctor Who (whenever on)
Friday Night With Jonathan Ross
Nevermind The Buzzcocks
Grey's Anatomy
Brothers and Sisters
Chuck
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pushing Daisies
One Tree Hill
Greek

And I am certain I am forgetting some now.

I have been this lame all my life, by the way. I was the only one who watched Baywatch when I was little because I enjoyed the stories.

So are you ignoring most of your box-sets with your list then?

Didn't think they counted! I meant more actively.

Box sets:

Previous seasons of Grey's Anatomy
Gilmore Girls
Sex and the City
Freaks & Geeks
Undeclared
the Mighty Boosh
Garth Marengi's Dark Place
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Firefly

I think that's it.

i am slowly coming to terms with the fact that i really like trashy television. i think it's alright, because i spend a lot of time doing slightly more intellectual things, so it balances out. right? right. i haven't really found any new tv shows that i LOVE, because nothing else will ever match up to gilmore girls, but there are loads of shows i try to watch whenever i can. and they're all trashy.

grey's anatomy
desperate housewives
house
the x factor
strictly come dancing (sorry)
eastenders
coronation street
hollyoaks

actually, that's fewer than i thought and trashier than i thought. there are loads of things i would like to watch, but never seem to be home for them.

Right now I'm only regularly watching Gossip Girl and True Blood, and in the recent past I've obsessed over Big Love. I have HBO again, so I'll watch the next season of that if I get caught up. I did finally get into this season of Project Runway, too, but it just finished.

Having been sucked into Lost watching this summer, I'll be following that in 2009.

I love some super trashy TV though, too. Rock of Love was a show I couldn't miss, and I'd for sure be watching Rock of Love Charm School if it didn't clash with Gossip Girl.

The only show I really follow is Doctor Who....
To be honest, I find myself watching less and less television these days....this is partly because there generally doesn't appear to be anything I want to watch all that much, and would rather be either listening to music, or on the net, but, also, recently, they're removed the TV guide on the red button, so, now all I have is now and next...so, apart from a few things that are always on at the same time, I tend to miss a lot of programs...

I was following Greek, for example, until they changed the times around, and, now, having missed episodes, it would be hard to get back into it again....

My favourite trashy shows are:
MADE
My Super Sweet 16
Beauty & The Geek (because it was so sweet!)
Flavour of Love

True Blood truly is my new favourite. SO addictive AND scary at once. Because the online streaming/player device I use just keeps on playing (and the episodes are so long! Normally American one hour shows run 42 - 44 minutes, but this one is between 49 - 56 so far!) I watched three in a row. WHOA.

I used to eat stuff like ANTM UP, but I am totally sick of it at this point. It's like "TYRA, we know no one ever gets any more modeling jobs after doing the Cover Girl contract. NO ONE." which makes all the rest dull for me.

I mostly like the ones where you see people actually change, like Beauty & The Geek, and MADE. They're so cute!

oh man, i didn't realize i had so many. i'm not including boxed sets or past series here (which we have downloaded and watch when we get the chance). anyway, the more current series i follow (in that i have them sky+'d and never miss an episode) are:

desperate housewives
grey's anatomy
heroes
lost (when it starts up again...)
eastenders
masterchef (but i don't think there is a new series at the moment)

i also watch lots of csi, antm, bntm, grand designs, come dine with me and other stuff when it's on, although i don't queue it up on my sky box like i do with the shows above.

other stuff we follow semi-regularly on box sets/downloads is:

the shield
the wire (still not fully into this but i'm trying...)
house
freaks and geeks (being downloaded as i type)
gilmore girls (starting again from the start!)

i'm sure there are more that i'm forgetting. i goddamn love tv.

I have just restarted my Gilmore Girls box set for the sake of my dissertation, taking notes on anything marriage. The pilot is so awesome for that! I am going for plenty o'episodes tomorrow to really get going. So far I've mostly done the reading.

GOD I love Gilmore Girls. I love when someone has died and wants to have their coffin paraded around the town square and Lorelai goes "When I die, I want to be paraded around a Benefit counter"

I love that they are so smart and funny but there is no implication that their love for make-up, trashy TV or films made for television, clothes etc. would ever compromise that they are smart and funny women. It seems to so often be either or when women are portrayed on television. "I like make-up, so I must be a silly!" or "What do you mean? I am intelligent, I have no time to wear make-up or wear anything but some sort of updated secretary with potential if she only took off her glasses look!"

I watch all the shows Astrid mentioned. Surprisingly we do find time to do other things. This is probably thanks to skipping all the adverts. If you watch too much TV, cutting out adverts can create plenty of time.

Clearly I have not yet admitted I have a problem.

Yeah. There's a great photo of me when I am little, sitting on a tiny kid chair, a metre away from the TV. I look lost already.

aww, i recently finished watching all of gilmore girls and i kind of miss it.

now i'm watching gossip girl, and all of buffy again.
when i'm with alec we watch house and ugly betty and we used to watch the riches before it was cancelled. so at christmas we'll have to catch up on all those episodes.

i'd never heard of greek until now, maybe that could be my next show, to replace buffy. i don't know though, it looks a bit wacky. is it wacky?

no, it's totally sweet! it's about a nerdy college freshman joining a fraternity, all while his super popular older sister is like the head of the equivalent sorority and doesn't want to have the association with him really. but it's funny and sweet and lovely.


"undeclared" is my favourite comedy at the moment though, haha! awesomeness.

Astrid, i love your dedication to your TV shows, it's ace.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon our laptop was running a bit slow, so i decided to sort out our download folder, it had 45gb of TV shows in there. Most of which is stuff Kirsten watches - Gossip Girl, 90210, Gilmore Girls (although i've been known to watch that too) Mad Men, Friday Night Lights.

I always watch the following (as in download and watch)

Lost
Battlestar Galactica
Heroes
Weeds
The Office (US)
Amazing Race

TV shows are better in box sets or all in one go, i'm crap at waiting a week for the next episode.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner
