Re: So, What Do You Watch On TV?

There are other ways to find it (Terrarium is the more recent one...)

Yes, My lad has an android wifi box with Terrarium on. Though I see it can be downloaded to a windows PC (the same as Mobdro) using an Android Emulator like Bluestacks.. I have Mobdro on my own PC...Can't afford to miss any F1 should I be away...wink

I use Terrarium more than anything as I tend to watch stuff after the event - the exception being the odd football game where Mobdro is used.

Re: So, What Do You Watch On TV?

Not only do you see shows you missed from your list @Cleoriff but, in my case, you also see spelling mistakes. I said Mobidro when I meant Mobdro......oops 😆

Happy Valley was missed from my list as well. Not very happy I agree @gmarkj but unmissable TV. Sarah Lancashire was superb and is one of my favourite actors.

Trouble is, if I listed every show I watch or have watched it would go on forever. Another drama that should have been on my list is Wentworth which returns on Saturday at 10pm on 5Star. It's an updated Prisoner Cell Block H, if anyone remembers that.

Re: So, What Do You Watch On TV?

My television is always on in the background, even if I’m not really watching it. But thinking of the programmes that I regularly record, then it’s generally a mix of music programmes like “Later with Jools Holland”, and dramas like “Humans” (“Versailles” is another that I’m currently watching). I only have Freeview, so I’m limited really to the best on offer from the BBC, ITV, or Channel 4, but I’ve watched every series of “Peaky Blinders”, which I think is a good example of British drama at its very best. 

 

I do take an interest in current affairs, so rarely miss programmes like Question Time, or the Daily Politics. And I do like my sport, but I’m more of a rugby fan than football, but I am watching the World Cup (just rather selective about which games I choose to watch).

@Anonymous you say you "only have Freeview so am limited to the best on offer from the BBC, ITV or Channel 4". I also only have Freeview but there are many more channels than just the 3 you mention. I assume that none of the other channels have any programmes of interest to you?

Re: So, What Do You Watch On TV?

I have never watched Wentworth @Glory1 as I couldn't stand Prisoner Cell Block H. It always seemed a bit of a cheap production show? (Each to their own)

Things past I have enjoyed (in the comedy genre)....

Anything with Victoria Wood and Julie Walters. Particularly Acorn Antiques, and DinnerLadies.

Their drama Pat and Margaret was superb.

I also liked The Vicar Of Dibley

Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights is another comedy show I love. An acquired taste but very funny.

Yes, I do occasionally watch other channels, and of course I neglected to mention Channel 5, which does also have some good content. But I rarely bother with channels like E4 or ITV 2, as they seem to have a lot of repeats, or programmes like “Love Island” which are of no interest to me. Maybe I’m missing out on a lot of good programmes, but the kind of content that I’m most likely to record (and watch several times) would usually be the programmes that are found on what I would consider to be the main channels.

Re: So, What Do You Watch On TV?

PCBH was a cheap production @Cleoriff, hence the shaky sets but I loved it. Wentworth has done away with the shaky sets and the 'cheap' feel of the show. Also more diversity in their actors. There are a number of Aboriginal and Asian actors in the show now. PCBH was all white with one Aboriginal with a non-speaking part.

But as you say each to their own.

I also loved Victoria Wood (sadly missed) and Julie Waters in Acorn Antiques and Dinner Ladies. And Pat and Margaret was, I agree, superb.

I like Dawn French so was a fan of The Vicar of Dibley.

Peter Kay is an acquired taste. I like his stand up routines but wasn't a fan of Phoenix Nights.
