Re: Favourite TV Shows

Baywatch is boring. i'll admit to watching Big Brother, but mostly because i have a huge crush on Dean and often it's the only thing on late night, especially at the moment with the bloody tennis and cricket grrr (getting foxtel switched on again in like 4 days, so won't be a problem much longer). The Nanny is one of those shows i'll watch if it's on like Seinfeld etc.
OMG i totally forgot to add Oprah and Dr Phil!!!

Re: Favourite TV Shows

Is any one else amazed it comes back year after year? Who's watching it? Who could possibly find it interesting? I wish Channel Nine had picked it up at the start, it'd have been given the chop after two nights. But Ten will show anything, I suppose....

Re: Favourite TV Shows

I think ratings are dropping.

It seems that the reality crase has dropped off as well as those DIY shows, backyard blitz etc.
Get rid of Idol and its easy street.

Re: Favourite TV Shows

Seinfeld and Simpsons will forever be classics for me =)

X-Files, although I haven't seen much of it, enjoys its permanent status as the first TV show I was addicted to.

Shows that I wish came back: JAG and Ed (Damn Australia!)

Current must-see shows: Lost and most of all House! Not sure Dr House's a sexy bitch he's the coolest bastard around XD Watching Iron Chef is also now a household tradition.

I've never seen an BB episode in my life, but the way it's advertised nowadays I can't imagine reacting any other way than a shudder. That said, some of my friends who formerly did not watch it, have said that you get hooked if you start. Now that's an evil program if ever I saw one

Re: Favourite TV Shows

lol it is one of those evil shows. although since having cable re-connected i don't watch it, but ESPECIALLY now that Dean got evicted there's no way i'll watch it. i could care less who wins. there's a few shows like that that are so bad they're addictive. for example The Swan. i hate that show, it's unbelievably bad and insulting and i hate it, but i love it, can't get enough of it! ditto Rockstar INXS, and a few others.
BTW trust me, Dr House is soooooooooo one of the sexiest bitches on television at the moment!

i so don't understand how law and order SVU can be anyone's favourite show?? a show about rape and even better, child rape. yay, riveting. not. i do flick over in the ad breaks to catch a glimpse of Chris Meloni, because he's freaking GORGEOUS, but i could never watch an actual episode. i think it's one of the most irresponsible shows ever created, because it normalises rape for entertainment purposes.... *end rant*

Re: Favourite TV Shows

Fair enough jenna, I know where your comming from with SVU and some of the episodes can be disturbing. the main reason I watch svu over Law and Order etc. is i never watched Law and Order when it started then found i quite liked the format when I saw the odd episode on repeat, so when SVU started up it was a chance to watch a series from the begining, plus i particularly like the characters/actors of the four main detectives. Criminal Intent is good but I find one hour of cop/detective shows is all i can handle a week. I do disagree that it's irresponsible in its depiction of events or that it normalises them. Personally I'm more concerned by the way other shows (and other parts of our culture/s) sexualise children as well as what gets suggested as effective/acceptable behaviour for both men and women.


Just my two cents.
