Internet Drop Out and Television




I hope I get to post this as the last couple of days my internet keeps dropping out and today this is the first time I have had a chance to get here because of the constent drop outs............Anyway since I have not been able to blog I have spent the time doing housework and answering some snail mail........

At the moment I am watching Jerry Springer and why do I watch this show the same reason I think anyone watches it for the fights...............nothing as entertaining as a good punch up on telly............


So what type of shows do my blog pals like to watch, me most of the time I like crime shows and prefer British crime shows over American and Australian that doesn't mean I do not watch shows from America and Australia I just happen to think Midsomer Murders and Wire in the Blood are two great shows and I love Murdoch Mysteries which is set in Canada.

    OH, about dramas; I can write a boring long comment for this topic p;) Well, as I used western TV dramas to enhance my hearing ability, I enjoyed a lot of them by using bilingual system since before 30's. We have Japanese- English switch both TV and DVD player (convenient, isn't it.
    murder she wrote, Little House in the Prairie, Be witched, Colombo, Sherlock Holms, Father Dowlings, etc.
    Haha, mostly sort of old detective stories,

  2. My favorite show is "Law & Order: SVU" when it comes to crime type shows - and for comedy I love "Fraiser".

    Yours look great - I wish that we got more British television here in the states.
    And orchid has an awesome list too.

    Good luck with your internet. I hope it doesn't keep dropping off - it can be so frustrating.

  6. I can't watch much TV because of my eye's but I do enjoy Psych which is not at all what the name indicates. It's more of a goofy humorous detective show where the one guy pretends he is psychic.

  7. Good to have you back online! I very seldom watch any TV, but when I do, it's mostly documentaries or the news channels.

  8. Glad you got back on here today my friend. It really is so frustrating when that happens. I love Midsummer Murders, Poirot, Miss Marple - all that sort of thing.

  9. Those are not my type of shows. I think they are put up to it or fakes. I rarely watch TV of any kind. Noting of interest or reruns.

  10. i like 'weeds', 'treme', 'house' and 'bored to death'. i'll occasionally watch some sitcoms like 'how i met your mother'. i used to watch crime shows but then they just started getting way over the top with the horrificness of the murders and i found myself thinking about the horror too much so i cut myself off.

  14. Hi Jo-Anne,
    My fav show is CSI NY & Miami, Blue Bloods.
    Midsummer Murders is not too bad, I also liked Spooks.

    Glad to hear your internet is back on, it's painful when it keeps dropping on and off like that.

    Have a lovely Day!

  15. Internet drops are so frustrating! Our cable television also controls our internet and telephone, so when we lose one we usually lose them all.

    I have watched some Canadian shows (lol - the home improvement ones mostly); I'm currently hooked on Flashpoint from there (it's on Netflix). I like many types of shows including stuff like Survivor, Amazing Race, cooking shows, and travel shows. We also watch a lot of things from the History channel.

  16. We are more tuned into the true crime shows. First 48 Hours, Documentary type shows about forensics, and then documentaries about other things. Not into reality shows by any means. We frequently go into Netflix and watch old series like Wings, Monk, Dick Van Dyke Show. Old classic TV shows.

  17. Hi GotthatSwing

    I have seen the shorts to "weeds" and have thought it would be a show I would like but have never seen it, I rarely seem to find the time to watch a movie and when I do watch movies.

    Hi Diane

    Thanks for that I have seen the show before and will have to keep an eye out for when it returns.....

    Hi Eva

    Oh yeah I also love the CSI shows I couldn't get into Blue Bloods may give it another look when it is repeated.

    HI Teresa

    We are in for another wet week here so that will more then likely mean more internet drop outs....grrr
