I'm Watching Me Some TV.

Today’s deviation will have a special topic – TV programmes. This is because, during the Easter holidays, I have had some time (which should be spent revising) to re-watch some of my old favourites, as well as keep up with my current favourites. I’m turning me into some couch potato.

So, without further ado. Top 10 TV programmes (currently showing or once showing)
01. The Simpsons
02. Lost
03. Will & Grace
04. Desperate Housewives
05. Film 2006 with Jonathon Ross
06. The Office
07. Futurama
08. Without a Trace
09. Arrested Development
10. Newsnight Review

And in spirit of all things filmic,

I like Will & Grace (that, the news and 24 are the only shows I watch) but Wossy doesn't do anything for me.

I might start watching Newsnight Review. Question: is it anything like The Culture Show?

Oooh I love Arrested Development! The main guy is so sweet! He kind of reminds me of what Zach Braff would be like if he met Jon Stewart, but brunette!

That link is a lie, by the way. Somebody posted the link to some hockey site.

I really like Laurie's acting style.

Emma said...

OK. I'm going to hand it to the annoying spam guy - he does his research. But, uh, next time? LEARN TO SPELL.

Emma said...

Oh yes, and Jaime, Newsnight Review is quite different to The Culture Show. They sit around and use big words they don't understand. It's brilliant.

And um...Zach Braff is brunette anyway. :D
