Day 13 – Your Favourite Childhood TV Show
Spuggie, Geoff man, Charlie, Noddy, and of course PJ and Duncan. Epic storylines like the PJ/Duncan/Debbie love triangle, the pop songs and the cheesy messages taught me all I needed to know about erm…. life in a Newcastle youth club. I went to Newcastle last year and got excited when the train went through Byker but I was devastated to learn that it wasn’t real and not filmed in Byker at all. I still feel cheated.
Noone of my age forgets when PJ went blind at paintballing!
We all know what happened to PJ and Duncan but even Spuggie was on TV recently, unbelievably she’s a grown up now too.
Day 12 – A TV Show That Resembles Your Life
Well it would have to be a cross between Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, The Royle Family, The Good Life and various cooking programmes. One day though I will be a Secret Millionaire.
Day 10 – A Guilty Pleasure TV Show
The Only Way is Essex.
I’ve caught the odd episode here and there and ended up watching as I was just astounded they are real people. They are so far removed from anyone I would ever choose to know. The women are shallow and stupid and the men…well they are not exactly what my idea of a man is.
Here is the lovely Amy, over made up and making up words. Bless her.
Day 9 – TV Show With Your Favourite Actress
Miranda Hart! I love her. I gallop like she does. Silly humour and it amuses me muchly.
Day 8 – TV Show With Your Favourite Actor
Sean Bean. In anything but especially Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Sharpe.
Rough and Northern *rubs thighs*
Day 7 – TV Show You Can Quote Best
The Young Ones
Hands up, who likes me?
I told you a million times, do not exaggerate.
Moan, moan, boring, just because you do a little bit of house work
Crop rotation in the 14th Century was considerably more widepread after….John
Cornflakes. Cornflakes cornflakes cornflakes cornflakes cornflakes.
So what have you done, turned it into a roller disco?
Wouldn’t it be amazing if this money was real?
Pollution, are you coming to my town or am I coming to yours?
and so on and so forth!
Day 6 – Least Favourite TV Character
Ronnie Mitchell – Eastenders
I loved Samantha Janus in Game On but Ronnie Mitchell has always been a naus. Even when she’s in a good mood she bores me to death. OK so she’s had a few things to be miserable about but bloody hell, has she ever smiled?
The baby swap thing was a good storyline but dragged on a bit too much. Last night she gave the baby back and I felt a little sorry for her. Then I remembered it’ s not real and got a life : )
I found this fan video. I think the fact that the backing track is Leona Lewis is apt. Equally as bland and boring as Ronnie.
Day 5 – Favourite TV Character
Gwen Cooper – Torchwood
She’s ace. She has a gap in her teeth which all the best people have . She kicks ass and I like the Welsh accent. When I grow up I’m going to be like her and work for Torchwood. Only not Welsh.
Day 4 – Worst Theme Song
Match of the Day
Signifies the fact I have lost the telly for a good hour and a half. Now I don’t mind football but it’s got to be the teams I’m interested in. I don’t need to spend any time at the weekend watching a bunch of overpaid pretty boys when there’s something better on the other side. Also on a Sunday it finishes quite late and I hate the noise of it when I’m trying to get to sleep. The crowds are far too noisy.
