- what tv programme / series have you devoted too much of your life to?
After finishing watching the latest series of Masterchef Australia last night i had a quick think about how many hours I’d watched of it over the last 3 months, followed by a little sob at how much wasted time that constituted.
Anyone else got a programme they’ve watched a lot and don’t really have a valid reason to do so?Posted 5 years agopasstherizlaMember
I’ve watched band of brothers, game of thrones season 1 and 2, the almighty Johnsons. trailer park boys, the drunk and on drugs happy fun time show, series 1 and 2 of the boosh, all of python (films included), and many other series many many times.. although I do work from home and watch DVD etc at work when I’m making up cables and doing other mundane tasks.Posted 5 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
I saw the title and, about to post before I’d read the OP, had in the front of my mind…
Mrs North is a big fan and, for her (an academic) she likes to switch her brain off to this sort of TV. I’ve allowed myself to be sucked in (again) by it while harouring a mild resentment of the time taken from other activities.
Nothing can now stop me from…
…watching some other cathode ray crack cocaine. 😀Posted 5 years ago
Just finished my 15th viewing of it from start to finish.
5 series or 60 episodes of roughly an hour each.
That’s 900 hours devoted to the single greatest television show of all time. F me. You must really like it! Granted it is excellent, but there are a lot of of other shows which whilst not being quite in the same league are worthy of viewing! I thought The Shield was great if you haven’t seen that yet.
Saying that, I’ve seen every episode of TNG and Seinfield at least half a dozen times each I would say. Although I’m usually doing something else as well when they’re on telly these days rather than watching with 100% attention.Posted 5 years ago
about 7 years of it to be honest to find that bag of bollocks was the end
idid suspect someone was having a laugh but i now more accurately suspect im just a mug
Lol, yes I made it about halfway through the first series then just thought “life is too short for this” and never watched it again.
If you ask me it’s got a lot to answer for re. the state of current telly – shows which have great ideas and would have made a brilliant 4-6 episode miniseries are now stretched out literally for years of tedious nonsense (e.g. Last Resort which is on at the moment).
star trek sucked, babylon 5 was where all the cool ones got their sci-fi on
If you’re talking about B5 vs DS9 then yes, obviously. If you are talking about TOS or TNG then you are clearly an insane babbling fool therefore your opinion is meaningless 😆Posted 5 years ago
but that was more than 70hrs of my life gone to aussies cooking
Bloody hell. I’d rather you hadn’t actually done the maths…!
yup, i was a little sad when i worked it out
TBH am most entertained by podgy George being mother every time thet three judges eat something…
he’s also the worst eater i’ve seen on tv, he looks like a hamster learning to use cutlery for the first timePosted 5 years agoversesSubscriber
Smallville. It’s OK but is essentially Dawson’s Creek with super powers. Certainly not worth watching week-in week-out – why did I do that?
Fortunately I managed to give it up around season 7/8 and have now been ‘clean’ for a couple of years.
Although this thread has prompted me to Google it and it seems it only ran for 2 more seasons… Now I know that there’s an end to it, and I was so close to it, I guess there’d be no harm in watching just one or two… Oh god…Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Babylon 5 was a bit shit but always felt like it was trying hard not to be, and so deserved a dog chew. Whereas Star Trek is perfectly happy to be shit because they know their market.
I suppose I’ve spent a lot of time on West Wings, but only because there’s an awful lot of episodes.Posted 5 years ago
