Name a TV show series in which you have seen every episode at least twice:
Life on Mars, Kids in the Hall, Psych. I comfort rewatch.

Name a (current) show you can't miss:
I am rather partial to NCIS at the moment. I don't know if you'd noticed.

Name an actor that would make you more inclined to watch a show:
John Simm.

Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show:
If Nic Cage were to do television: him.

Name a show you can, and do, quote from:
Futurama. The Simpsons. Life on Mars. Psych. I am a quoting fiend.

Name a show you like that no one else enjoys:
I am sure there isn't one. Okay, how about So Haunt Me?

Name a TV show which you've been known to sing the theme song:
You Rang M'Lord?

Name a show you would recommend everyone to watch:
Life on Mars. If they don't like at least something about it, I feel sad and insist that they admit it's a good show, but just not their thing.

Name a TV series you own:
I... don't. Unless you mean the DVDs, to which I could mention many. But I'll bring up: Jonathan Creek.

What is your favourite episode of your favourite series?
1.02 of Life on Mars. I don't have one for Dexter, because every episode is brilliant (but one of the very early ones, with the alligators and the young sociopath? First time I practically rolled on the floor laughing and came to appreciate just how brilliant the show was.) 'From the Earth to the Starbucks' or 'Lights, Camera, Homicidio' from Psych.

A show you mean to watch, but you just haven't gotten around to yet:
Life, Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Flashpoint, ReGenesis, Castle.

Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?
Not so much that they were bad, but because they became things that weren't my thing: such as Lost and Battlestar Galactica.

Name a show you aren't interested in watching, not in the least:
Extreme Makeover or anything similar.

Name a show that's made you cry multiple times:
I can name several. Usually, they're my favourites. Dexter, Life on Mars, hell, even Psych has had me sniffling twice. Oh, oh, Clocking Off! The Horatio Hornblower telemovies.

Oldest TV show you like?
Dude. I have no idea. Erm, Dad's Army? I'm sure there's one older than that.

Newest TV show you like?
White Collar!

What do you eat when you watch TV?
Whatever I feel like.

How often do you watch TV?
On actual television? Only once a week, when Spicks and Specks is on. But in terms of tv show consumption; at least two or three episodes of any given show a day. Sometimes more if I'm mainlining a show, or there are several of my favourites on one night. Or if I am without work, or a story I am writing, or game I am playing. I watch tv in lieu of reading, which is terrible. I am a junkie.

Do you have a favorite talk show?
No, can't say that I do.

What's the last TV show you watched?
The latest episode of Leverage, which was awesome.

What's your favourite/preferred genre of TV?
I don't have one, although I am partial to shows that feature buddy cops or something that captures the buddy cop dynamic. I like crime procedurals and murder mysteries. I also like panel shows, and SF, and gritty realism, and... yeah, I do not have one.

What's your least favourite genre of TV?
Most 'reality television' and soap operas.

What was the first TV show you were obsessed with?
I have no idea, I started too early. Rainbow?

What TV show do you wish you never watched?
I don't think I have one. I've given up on a few shows now, but I don't regret having watched what I did.

What's the weirdest show you enjoyed?
The second series of Look Around You.

What TV show scared you the most?
When I was a kid? Doctor Who. No doubt about it.

What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched?
Whose Line is it Anyway? always had at least one guaranteed laugh every five minutes.

Which do you think is the best TV series ever made?
Dexter is fairly close. Spaced is the best sit-com ever made. Slings & Arrows is up there. A huge part of me wants to say Life on Mars. I don't think it's possible to be a 'best' television show, it's way too subjective, but in terms of succeeding at what they're striving to be, all of these shows are phenomenal.

Which episodes of Psych have made you cry???
21st-Jan-2010 12:59 pm (UTC)
The Lassiter scene in 'Tuesday the 17th' and a scene between Shawn and his mother in 'Mr Yang'.

I am a sap.

Ahhhh I got teary too in that scene in "Mr. Yang".

Awesome! :D

Sorry, you don't get 'So Haunt Me' entirely to yourself; I have a bit of a thing for George Costigan! And I'm very likely to steal this meme - when I'm a bit more awake!

Darn! ;)

He's great.

Have you seen him in 'Master of the Moor', where he's a cop pursuing John Michie? Extremely attractive, in that off-beat sort of way ...
22nd-Jan-2010 08:28 am (UTC)
No, I haven't. Sounds good!

ooh, interesting meme. Oh! You watch Jonathon Creek- I remember that...he's the stage magician who works as a PI, right?
And hey, I tear up over comic books. You have nothing to worry about- at least you're worried over real people instead of ink and paper.
Totally with you on the Nic Cage thing.

Yup, written by David Renwick. I love it.
