None .

Name a show you can, and do, quote from:

Stargate Atlantis

What is your favorite episode of your favorite series?

Are you kidding me? No I couldn’t possibly do it

A show you mean to watch, but you just haven’t gotten around to yet:

Almost Human

Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?

Not quit because it was bad, but I’ve lost interest in Revolution, I kept trying but it fizzled out for me.

Name a show you aren't interested in watching, not in the least:

Coronation Street

Name a show that’s made you cry multiple times:

Stargate Atlantis
Robin Of Sherwood (I dare anyone to watch Michael Praed’s Robin die, and not bawl like a baby)

Oldest TV show you like?

Man From Uncle
Soap (funniest American sit com ever for me, I blame dad we used to watch it together.)

Newest TV show you like?

Sleepy Hollow
The Musketeers (Guilty Pleasure)

What do you eat when you watch TV?

Eat?   I’m always on a diet *sigh*

How often do you watch TV?

Every day.

Do you have a favorite talk show?

I’m with milly_gal and Wings128 Hell No!

What’s the last TV show you watched?

Criminal Minds

What’s your favorite/preferred genres of TV?

Crime Drama

What's your least favorite genre of TV?

Soap Operas
Game Shows

What was the first TV show you were obsessed with?


What TV show do you wish you never watched?

Got it!  A program called Ghostwatch, it was a BBC mockumentary *shudder* it freaked me the fuck out. I really wished I’d never watched the bloody thing.

What’s the weirdest show you enjoyed?

When I was a lot younger I was quite hooked on the Chinese mythology TV shows on BBC 2.  Things like Monkey and The Water Margin, believe me Monkey was weird!

What TV show scared you the most?

Sapphire & Steel, I was probably way too young to watch it, but I couldn’t help myself. That show is probably the reason I hate having my picture taken (that and I look like a squashed frog), and Supernatural has had its moments too.

What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched?

I had a real soft spot for Drop The Dead Donkey.

Which do you think is the best TV series ever made?

Hmmm let me see, Supernatural springs to mind along with Stargate Atlantis and Doctor Who.

Soap!!!! So funny, and really a ground-breaker. Even as a comedy, they dealt with stuff no one else did. There would be no Modern Family, for instance, without Soap.

Okay, you're the third or fourth person I've seen do this. I'll have to play later :-D

Soap really was ground breaking, and so very funny. I enjoyed this, it was fun to revisit old shows.

I agree about Soap, it was one of the funniest shows ever! And Robin of Sherwood, oh that was a good memory! Michael Praed with hair even longer and more bouffant than Jared's! God, he was gorgeous! Thanks!
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 3rd, 2014 12:14 pm (UTC)
How could you not love Soap? and Robin Of Sherwwod that was a damn fine memory, especially Michael's hair *G*

Glad I could bring back some very happy memories.
JJ1564jj1564 on April 3rd, 2014 12:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, lovely memories! I actually saw Michael Praed in 'Pirates Of Penzance' many years ago with the wonderful Tim Curry as The Pirate King, I had almost forgotten that so thanks for the reminder!

OMG! Your inclusion of "NCIS" in the list of ones you own, reminded me I didn't include "JAG"! I can't believe it, considering I own all ten seasons.

I love NCIS, and I'm quite fond of NCIS LA, I started watching for Callum, and then stayed for Deekes!

Robin of Sherwood...*waving hands like a crazy*

I didn't know you also had a dvd. So do I. I also own sell videotapes, still think of purchasing blu-lay though I don't have a player.

I like 'Sleepy Hollow' too, though sadly I only manage to catch one episode. Still wait to re-run.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 3rd, 2014 12:16 pm (UTC)
And there he is! Damn still gorgeous. Seriously persevere with Sleepy Hollow, it's a lot of fun.

Love seeing inside the telly minds of my friends, I get to see how much we have in common and stuff I might like :)

Great answers, and you are a woman of discerning tastes hun :D
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 3rd, 2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
I agree it's fun to see what show we all enjoy. I promise to pop over and reply to your meme later *G*

Why thank you for saying I have discerning taste! By the way have you seen this week's Bones? All I'm saying is Bacon *G*
milly_galmilly_gal on April 4th, 2014 02:50 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen it yet, Steve and I wait and watch them both on a Friday night...I'm intrigued :D
