Help me find my proper place
I do hope the telly's going to get better this year. People think I'm dedicated to I like, but sometimes I only write so much because I get restless and there's nothing on the box. During the dark winter nights I come home and just want to belong. I turn on the telly (about 8.30-9ish) and want to watch something but it's totally dire. Last week I thought "I'll go back to Grand Designs" (an old favourite which I went off) but after one episode I remembered how irritating the people on it are. I don't ever watch that much telly so it must be bad if I'm noticing it.
My 2007 viewing habits:
- Watched religiously: Flight of the Conchords, The Mighty Boosh, Californication, Lead Balloon, Ugly Betty, Outnumbered, Harry Hill's TV Burp, Doctor Who, The American Office, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, The IT Crowd, Still Game, Kath & Kim, Armstrong & Miller, Dragon's Den, Gavin & Stacey, Nigella Express, The Sopranos, Drake and Josh, Spongebob Squarepants, 30 Rock.
- Watched semi-religiously if there was nothing better to do: X Factor, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, QI - anything else from the "men in chairs" genre.
- Started but didn't finish: Shameless, Heroes, ER, The Peter Serafinowicz Show (dear god, how bad was that programme?), Saxondale, Big Brother, My Name is Earl, The Sarah Silverman Show, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Cranford, The Culture Show, Coast, Wife Swap.
- Don't watch: Lost, 24, Life on Mars. soaps, daytime TV, anything mildly depressing, loads of other stuff probably.
Am I missing something? Is there some great programme that I might like? Does all the great telly start in February? So many questions. I'm ready to commit. What are you guys watching? What's going to be big in 2008?
