    I watch a bit of telly, mostly in my peripheral vision and therefore by default.

    I'm peripherally up to speed on the X Factor for example - i don't think i would do well in any sort of quiz related to it though - and the other night i found myself watching an episode of 'Endeavour' on ITV 3 (?), the 'Morse' spin-off, which sucked me in in the kind of way that 'Morse' does, if you know what i mean.

    I don't watch a lot of telly any more but first loves never never die.

    Borgen, which is turning out to be a bit boring this season and Elementary in a 'it's got Lucy Liu in it' kind of way.

    Apart from that very little else other than Sky News now the F1 season has finished.

    It's the only way to watch it. Actually I sky plus it and then watch it in about 20 mins.

    Fast forward through the rubbish, and pick out the good bits.

    I just need to know these things in case they crop up in conversation with a teenager or in a pub quz.

    Tonight I shall be watching 'What happens in Kavos' as my middle son was holiday there while they were filming it...

    Woe betide him if he appears on it!

    One of my favourite things at the moment is 'Gogglebox', watching people watching tv - brilliant!

    I LOVE Gogglebox. I particularly like the elderly gentleman with his feet up. He made me laugh out loud several times last night. I also like the couple of chaps in front of the bare-naked-lady portrait - I love the way that he tries to apply 'interesting' facts to trashy television. And the couple who get steadily more sloshed as their viewing continues.

    Also Elementary (I like watching Lucy Liu but probably for different reasons to Proactive - I admire her clothes). Just finished watching the last series of Endeavour which was stored on Series Link. I made the mistake of watching back-to-back episodes of Bates Motel (no apostrophe. Presumably because it is American) while alone in the house and am quite glad it isn't back until next year. Big Bang Theory, of course.

    They're re-running Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads - it doesn't get better than that.

    I recently got Sky (for free woop woop!)

    And thus I have watched some real crap on TV!

    I am a little bit addicted to RSPCA Animal Rescue and spend a lot of time screaming at it as the Auzzie's who just put everything down...

    Now that would be fantastic!



    Love the old couple (Joan & hubby who's supposed to be loosing weight), also love the sloshed couple & the two Sandys & the two gay blokes....lol they're all great...although im not fond of the two new elderly ladies......they seem as if they're reading off a script. The star of the show has to be 'the boobies' ;)

    I don't really watch any soaps apart from Eastenders......yay, Kat & Alfie back together..
    I like....
    Dr Who
    QI
    Have I Got News
    Last Leg
    Man Vs Food
    Never Mind The Buzzcocks
    Miranda
    Big Bang Theory
    Horrible History's (yes I watch kids tv!)
    Any documentaries at all,

    My dirty secret is that I love Reality TV & fly on the wall documentaries......Big brother especially, I've only recently got into I'm a Celebrity but its growing on me :)

    Horrible History is a classic

    Tat Shuffling on Two can be a little bit addictive ( Celebrity Antique Road Trip )

    You look at what people will pay seventy/eighty/ninety quid for - followed by the news with economic doom and gloom....
