I don't watch a great deal of tele to be honest but I do LOVE; One born every minute. :smile: Love babies and very interested in midwifery etc. So make sure I watch it every week and it's on tonight! Yippeeee :dance:

Also love American dad - makes me laugh sooo much. :smug: and a bit of Family guy!

Other than that, I don't think I watch anything else. I like watching one off documentary's on things that interest me and showjumping etc. when it's on, but that's not often. :frown:

So what do you like to watch?

At the moment I am loving Call the Midwife, Miranda, Ripper Street and the new Dallas series has just started. Not much else catching my eye and we're watching more and more films on Netflix instead.

We don't watch much telly, it sits in a cupboard in the caravan! lol but we have just started downloading stuff to the ipad from the bbc iplayer. I am loving Ripper Street (what a hottie that Captain Jackson is?!!!)
Love Death in Paradise - keep downloading that too.
Dr Who - love it to pieces and download whenever they appear (loved the Christmas spesh)

I also enjoy a Midsomer Murder, but you can only download those and watch in real time, so no good round at the caravan as the connection there is pants. Watched one the other Saturday afternoon though - the new guy is quite good too.

I have to admit to being a soup fan, Emmerdale and Coronation street.

I am not a 'can't miss' an episode but I do watch most days, its sort of the family evening ritual, cosy and comforting and funny.

I have watched Emmerdale since I was at school, used to stick it on in the afternoons on sick days or skiving days (had a lot of the later:wink:). Probably watched Corrie ever since it started, but really got into it in my teens when I was going out with a soldier from Manchester.

Other than that I like documentaries, Prof Brian Cox (aka 'The Sun Shines out of Uranus) 'What is life?' is very good atm.

Also enjoying 'The Mary Berry Story' loved the bit last night where she had polio and her dad brought her pony down to the hospital to cheer her up. What a gal!

I love murder and crime thrillers. Lewis in particular and a new Scott and Bailey is starting shortly.

I must sound like a right old tele addict, but in fact I only watch the stuff I want to watch then switch off. I can't stand having the thing on invading the living room otherwise

A lot of these programmes I have never heard of. Are they on SKY? Just wondering, I really don't want to spend any more time than I do watching TV, at the same time, I would hate to think I am missing something really good.

I can't stand Miranda:giggle:, I get it but she is such an oeuf? and the jokes are just so un funny and old hat. (Runs for hills!):giggle:

Why can't we have some really good NEW sitcoms, if I watch any more repeats of Only fools and horses, Dads Army etc I will go bonkers.

I did hope 'Going out' might be a possibility, as the cast is excellent, really haven't got into it, its like they are trying too hard, which is ruining the whole thing. Yikes I sound like 'points of view'.

One to watch out for is Martin Clunes - Heavy Horse Power although i think it is a one off documentary type . It is on thursday 7th feb on itv at 9pm

Their is an interview with him in the TV times and he talks about his two young Clydesdales Ronnie and Bruce. I didnt know he had clydesdales and he also mentions how Comtois are the Rolls Royces of horses :smile:
