So, I've known for some time that I enjoy bad TV and it was my way to escape reality and to relax. It's also why I read crap books and enjoy crap magazines.
I'm not an overtly deep thinker but certain issues weigh heavy on my mind and I spend a lot of time thinking about people, situations, etc. I'm also quick witted and what I would call a social intellect.
So when I recently started to analyse how much crap TV I watched, I was pretty scared for myself and my friends.
There are two categories of TV -
TV shows I like, know are rubbish but will stand up for my right to watch them:
America’s Next Top Model - My addiction to this programme has gotten so bad that all of my housemates are now hooked on America's Next Top Model...most of us love Joanie and hate Jade. Roll around Monday night and everything goes on hold for an hour, from 9-10pm.
Ugly Betty - This is truly awful, so horrendous, but I adore it, so so much! She's great and Daniel Meade is just for show. Wilhelmina and her friend in the cosmetic surgery are just entertaining and as for Jim Daniels being American once again, crazy!
The Ghost Whisperer - What is it with her telling everyone her real name and then telling them all her secret, she's going to pass everyone over and everyone's going to know her secret...she fell out with a friend at uni because of this very matter and she runs around shouting her mouth off. She's constantly talking to herself and everyone excepts it and the ghosts all have shadows? Her colleague/business partner except her never working in the store or immediate departures in the middle of the day and how many antiques can you sell in one small town, to justify running such a large store?! As for the shittest titles I've ever seen in the world...well I just love it, all of it! Except for the fact that it makes me cry like a baby, I'm so pathetic!.
The OC - It's The OC, lucid story lines, bad acting, everyone forgives everyone, just because. They always look incredible. Huge houses and constant rich, bored kids. What more could you want?!
Ed - He's great, one of my favourite episodes was when they locked Ed and Carol in the bowling alley, until they admitted that they still loved each other. It's great. It's set in a small town, around a bowling alley, and a great group of friends.
Most Haunted - The old ones with Derek were better, now it's shit!
8 Simple Rules - I haven't seen the episodes after the dad has died but it's crap and the girl from Charmed is mega skinny (it makes me want to puke, which is probably what she does after every meal). Also, the youngest daughter is actually 8 years senior of the skinny blonde one. The more entertaining of the whole affair is that the mum from 'Married With Children" is in it, yeah!
Everybody loves Raymond - It annoys a lot of people but I love it, so much, sorry but the dumb/not dumb brother. The over bearing mother and Peter Boyle, he's great, from such classics as: Santa Clause 1-3, Doctor Doolittle, While You Were Sleeping, Malcolm X, Where The Buffalo Roam & Taxi Driver.
Judging Amy - Typical drama of being a working mum, with mother whose the world and it's all about doing the right thing and making the best decisions for everyone. It's a classic!
Providence - Similar to Judging Amy but a little more intricate, with her dead mother's ghost, who pops in. An idiot brother. A highly strung single sister with daughter and an ever loving father, whose a vet.
TV Shows I like, know are rubbish and try not to admit to people I like them, as I'm ashamed:
Derek Accorah's Ghost Towns - Like Most Haunted, without Yvette Fielding screaming.
Charmed - It's crap, total and utter crap. To many storylines and it all hangs in the balance of which or how the actors are feeling. Shannon Doherty decides to pull out and they kill her off and bring in Rose McGowan, a long lost sister. As for the fact that they never know where the kids are, irresponsible parenting. And the most stupid "let's kill ourselves off, so we can live a normal life, opps! it didn't work, oh well, let's carry on regardless". Crazy but it does have the ability to fill my time and it's normally quite entertaining.
Britain's Next Top Model - Lisa Snowdon trying to be Tyra Banks, It's painful, as for the stupid cows...English girls really are bitchy!.
Australia's Next Top Model - As bad as the British ones, minus the Tyra Banks wannabe Lisa Snowdon.
Kings of Queens - Awful, but it has the fantastic Kevin James in, he's so loveable and with Jerry Stiller for good measure. True Brilliance!
Hope and Faith - How awful is this?! The two sisters are crap, the storylines are dreadful. The oldest daughter, is old enough to be a sister. It's pure bollocks and I love to hate to love it!
Yep, I'm sick, sick in the head...but I love it, oh so much and surprisingly most of my friends except it and even join me in the watching of these crap TV shows.
Please refrain from pointing and laughing at me in the future, as I've fronted up and admitted that I'm ill. Plus if anyone fancies ever joining me in the crap TV watching, then they are more than welcome anytime!
