    I find internet TV far more entertaining than about 85% of the crap on our screens at the moment. I'd much rather watch pieces on YouTube by people like Charles Trippy (and CTFxC), Katers17, SMPfilms, Tobuscus etc.

    i miss animaniacs, i think that was the best cartoon ever created! they still show pinky and the brain as i discovered today but not animaniacs. it`s all these junk reality shows and even kids tv leaves a lot to be desired these days!

    None of the above, I grew up in the 70s and that's when Rainbow was first on the telly.

    Rainbow, The Wombles, Jamie and the magic torch, Pipkins and The Magic Roundabout.

    That's what I call TV :D

    I miss Buffy too!

    I'm actually watching various Transformers series (Animated and Prime), as I missed out on the whole franchise when I was little. I must say I am thoroughly enjoying it :D

    I think my favourite TV at the moment as Castle, Being Human (latest series just ended), Lie To Me (catching up on the last series), The Mentalist and a few others. For the most part I have no interest in most programs. I very rarely watch TV.

    I have fond memories of Rainbow, Simpsons and the odd bit of Star Trek. Never saw the fuss over Friends though. I think sitcom comedies just isn't for me :eek:

    I was a huge Buffy fan, got all the seasons on DVD! Syfy are currently showing it, they had the musical episode last week, I know all the words :lol:

    I also love Supernatural, one of my current favourite programmes but its SO slow being shown here. The 6th season is nearly over in America and we havent even seen the first episode yet!

    I like Chuck, Warehouse 13 and Spartacus currently on TV. I have loads of old box sets though - Bottom, Red Dwarf (1-8), Brittas Empire, X files, House, NCIS, Angel, Heroes, Lost, Torchwood, Doctor Who, The Invisible Man, Dark Angel (they needed to make more series' of those two programmes!!!). I never run out of things to watch :lol:

    I used to love Casualty (20 years ago). Does anyone watch Nurse Jackie? Its a fantastic series from the US with Edie Falco (Sopranos fame) Believe me it is the most realistic Medical show on TV.

    I also like Judge Judy and Cougar Town and of course re runs of Sex and the City!!. :tongue_smilie:

    I am waiting impatiently until Warehouse 13 comes back! Very fun series. I need to catch up on Spartacus, too.

    Oh, I must watch Red Dwarf again. Its been too long :D
