Favourite 5 Shows On Tv

    As we have an option to chat off topic on things, I thought I would ask you what your favourite television shows were currently?

    This is mainly because I (believe it or not in this day and age) cannot get a television reception in the new house, and am therefore having to watch television through my NOW TV box which means I can get television but has to be through online and WiFi sources (not through an ariel).

    I have always been a bit of a fan of :

    1 - First Dates - I love this programme because from the first moment they enter the restaurant its just interesting to see how people approach a first date, and you join them on what could be the start of something amazing...or not lol!
    2 - The undateables - I like the fact that this programme brings to light interesting people who are faced with some unique life challenges, but shows them facing life in the search of love (and hopefully finding it)
    3 - The Big Bang Theory - Its a great comedy series, but also creates an alternate activity ;)
    4 - Gogglesprogs - I have to be honest I was never really a fan of goggle box, but for some reason watching these children and hearing some of their funny comments is just priceless. I have also been amazed by some of the levels of knowledge that they have at that age :)
    5 - 24 hours in police custody - This programme while shocking in a number of cases, raises awareness of issues within society that we see everyday and allows a unique insight into how much time and effort goes into fighting crime.

    What are yours, and why should I watch them?

    Enjoy :) x

    We very rarely watch TV progs when they're on, if you know what I mean. We tend to watch iplayer, nowtv etc. Top 5? Hmmmm...
    1. Peaky Blinders - believe it or not, only just discovered this programme. It is epic.
    2. Game of Thrones - of course
    3. Poirot - Lis has brainwashed me with the 'leetle grey cells'
    4. The Living and The Dead - just started/about to start on BBC, but has been on iplayer. Quite creepy.
    5. Gogglebox - better than most of the programmes that they watch!

    Nice choice :) I came across Sons of Anarchy recently and considered watching the entire box set but then didn't know if I should take the plunge?

    'Reality' TV has lowered the tone of our society! So called TV 'celebrities' who are famous for doing nothing have become the stars of today??? How did that happen? More to the point, why are people especially the teens of today aspiring to be like them??? Finally...who is to blame for this nightmare? Society, social media OR the people who create the shows??? x

    Yes I guess I am to blame a little for my interest in First Dates...though I watch it purely to see what kind of people go to the restaurant and if they actually meet that special someone?

    I never watch things like Big Brother, or...I don't know what the others are? LOL! x

    I didn't know that!?!? Wow, in that case yes...you've just killed that one for me so well done lol! I won't be watching that anymore!

    I miss shows like :

    Only Fools And Horses
    Yes Minister
    Yes Prime Minister
    Faulty Towers
    Porridge
    The Two Ronnies

    All British and all amazing!
     
  17. So many good ones ppl. Agree with lots. But in order of fav .. And some are mid season finished for now...

    2) Greys Anatomy - close second
    3) Game of Thrones - will miss it now!
    4) Wayward Pines - imagine!
    5) The Five - intriguing

    Don't get me wrong, it was good. Just not enough to hold our attention, I guess. We might go back to it, at some point.

    Just thought I'd resurrect this thread for two programmes; Black Mirror and Westworld. Is anyone watching these? Both series are messing with my head. o_O
    Having seen the first two series of Black Mirror, I knew what to expect - f**ked up morality tales about the dangers of technology - but, since the series has gone on to Netflix, the stories have better production values and, as a result, are a bit creepier.
    Westworld - based very loosely on the Yul Brinner film - is much more of a straightforward 'are they human or not/when will the machines take over' kind of trip, with added clues/red herrings along the way. For example, the score is modern music such as The Cure, Radiohead etc. played on the mechanical piano in the saloon. Are the music choices significant? I just can't work it out!!!:confused:
