The TV Thread

Post by Kenny » Fri Nov 28, 2008 8:58 am

Yes, I think we should have a thread for TV, we haveone for films after all.

I feel this will become a good place to rant about great and shit TV shows.

Bearing in mind I only have Freeview, I am currently loving:

Lead Balloon
Outnumbered
Hole In The Wall (LOLZ)
TV Burp - YES I stay in some Saturday nights!
Have I Got News For You
QI
Goldenballs

I also only have freeview, and if I'm honest, that's quite enough for me. There's too much other stuff to do in the world than sit around watching TV all day. Having said that, currently enjoying:

The Real Hustle
Mock the week (when it's on)
Have I got news for you
Johnathan Ross (when he's been un-banned)
TV Burp
Deal or no deal :oops: :oops:

And I agree that Derren Brown's shows are ace.

One thing that i've come to love January for... new series of Shameless, am hoping it's the same again...

Otherwise...

Question Time
Bear Grylls
Frasier DVDs
Sky Sports News

Once the Sky gets sorted it will change to:

Friends
Frasier
WWE
Football
Sky Movies
Anything with Girls Aloud

It's so depressing when you realise you've watched the same feature about 5 times on the bus driver who thinks he picked up Robinho in Manchester... I can't wait to have WWE in 50'' HD...

hahaha, it comes from behind a sliding set of doors as well... it is the king of televisions! I've decided as my life has become so hamstrung by the weight of rent i'm paying and cannot afford, the only way to truly enjoy my house is to boast about it whilst never being able to leave it again!

Here is a pic of the dock on the wall that you plug your ipod into that then feeds sound through the ceiling speakers throughout the house :)

I think I may have to take up watching Countdown now Jeff Stelling is taking over the presenting role, maybe he could get Kammy to come and find words in the dictionary or even funnier....Paul Merson! "Erm I've got 3 letters Jeff...the"

that is quite impressive, but not quite up to the standards of this handy gizmo i have:

it is called ambi pur, it plugs into the wall and feeds calming scents throughout the house at regular intervals.

Ah! Thank you! I was supposed to buy one of these and totally forgot... If Evan backs out of our lunch plans i will head to the shops to track one of these bad boys down...

(i'd rather be drinking beer though...)

I still cannot get over the fact that:
1.) The bbc actually made a show the concept of which was nicked from one single round of a Japanese game show, and thurned this into a full hour long show...or however long it is.
2.) It's hosted by senor orange winton, and people still watch it.

Unbelievable.

But then I'm sadly addicted to a show that's hosted by Noel Edmonds, so I can't really talk.
