    OK - we know about movies... what about TV shows?

    For me:
    American Chopper
    Las Vegas
    Stargate SG-1
    Top Gear
    My Name is Earl
    The West Wing
    NASCAR Nextel Cup racing (I watch every one during the season)
    and re-runs of Babylon 5 and Farscape (still ****ed they killed the best sci-fi series ever)

    'Lost' - ok, so I'm watching Season 2 on my PC, but it still counts as a TV show, right? ;)

    And '24' is due to hit our screens in a couple of weeks - no doubt I'll bo hooked on this new series too!

    Yes 24 is on in 1.5 hours! Love that show, E-ring is good, The Office, which I think is a remake of a British show (not sure), Simpsons, Family Guy and Numbers.

    I think I am the only person on earth to find the legendary Fred Dibnah interesting?

    I think maybe its because he knows so much about Lancashire and the North, I like to know about my local heretage?

    I also used to find some of the historicol parody, and mockery of Literature in Blackadder quite amusing.

    TV now is going terrible though, either American trash or moronic nonsense from the BBC. I love old sitcoms, such as Porridge, Dads Army, Only Fools And Horses and Open All Hours. Ronnie Barkers immaculate timing and abuse of the English language is nothing short of genius.

    My student years were shamefully spent infront of Bob Holness and Richard Whitely with Call My Bluff and Countdown. Though I did go through a ridiculous stage of the Young Ones? I guess I grew tired of the unnecessarily explicit language and extreme violence with that, I despise this new shock culture, whereby people saying more than they should be able to get away with, or inserting the word gay for a cheap laugh as a replacement for talented writing technique.

    When my television eventually expires, I may consider not getting a new one, I may purchase a dart board, snooker table and mini bar instead?

    Charmed (obviously)
    CSI (Las Vegas and Miami)
    Waking the Dead
    Silent Witness
    and any 'one off' or 'mini series' such as 'afterlife' that was recently shown on ITV

    They are the only programmes I watch, until the next serious of 'X Faxtor' 'Pop Idol' etc hits our screens again.

    Oh yes, I forgot,
    Frost, Silent Witness, Waking the Dead and Murphy's Law ( I' ve been in the last three of those.)

    Top Gear
    Anything with Fred Dibnah or Adam Hart-Davies in
    Rome was brilliant, but has now finished, sadly
    Caught Balderdash and Piffle last week, that was good.

    Try the Men & Motors channel on freeview. From a ladies point of view the adverts leave a lot to be desired but they do run The Sweeney, The Professionals, Magnum PI, The Avengers, The Prisoner etc. Well cool
