What are your top 5 TV programmes

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

'Sort-Of Current' TV programmes, rather than 'favourite all time', in no particular order...

- Come Dine With Me (they are just getting crazier)
- Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe
- University Challenge
- Lark Rise to Candleford
- Timmy Time
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.

That rings a bell, did it have a plant in it that was called uncle or something like that, or am I imagining things. :scratch:

Don't remember the name of the plant, but it used to talk backwards. The 'celebs' (TV cooks and Blue Peter presenters, mostly) used to collect dragmas (the plastic shapes), and would then have to battle the Vortex to get back through.

I like, in no particular order;

nature programmes, especially if they are presented by David Attenborough.

Funnies like the IT crowd and Father Ted.

True blood.

Cookery programmes, I like watching Saturday morning kitchen.

Documentaries like horizon, things with science or archaeology in or documentary/ reality type things where you see people doing cool things like Kirsties Home-made Home where she got to do all sorts of crafts or River Cottage where Hugh gets to farm and hunt or Victoriam Farm.

ooo, ooo, also gardening programmes, there was a good one on a while ago about Kew wasn't there. I don't watch a load of telly even though I've made it sound like it! Promise!
England is not a Free People, till the Poor that have no Land, have a free allowance to dig and labour the Commons.

River Cottage (and all that goes with it!)
CSI
Stargate SG1 (bit of a Sci-Fi geek at heart)
Jam and Jerusalem when its on
NCIS

I thought I must comment about tv stuff since recently it has been playing on my mind that I could actually live quite happily without the tv, I watch DVD boxsets far more. Think I'm getting grumpy about it because I have to have sky to get a good enough picture to actually watch. Freeview doesn't work here very well. Sky costs me £18 a month for which I only watch BBC, the food channel and GOLD!! However my OH likes top watch tv when I'm on nightshift and so it goes on. Even when I do have the time to watch tv it tends to be something recorded!!
Sing like nobody's listening, live like there's no tomorrow, dance like nobody's watching and love like you've never been hurt.
