TV meme, days 28 and 29  

One post for yesterday's and today's related questions.

Day 28 - First t.v. show obsession

My first obsession was with Twin Peaks, I suppose (in 1990), although it was not nearly as bad as last year's obsession with the first series of Being Human and this year's with Life on Mars.

Day 29 - Current t.v. show obsession

Current obsession with a t.v. show: Life on Mars; obsession with a current t.v. show: none.

And now the end is near: last question tomorrow!

Current Mood: contentcontent
Current Music: De bom - Doe Maar

...but they didn't occupy my mind like LoM does.
Got it. A bit different with me because my childhood show obsessions were often the basis for games I played with friends, make believe stuff.

Is VH-1 Classic a videoclip channel? We had VH-1 for a while here, until it became a paid channel.
They do play videos, but also have other programming, documentary type stuff - I've watched ones about Genesis and Rush so far. They also have scheduled programming, such as The Metal Show which is an interview show about heavy metal artists - I like that one as I like a lot of heavy metal (not as much as I used to though).

And yay for BBC America, although they do cut out bits of programmes to make room for commercials.
I haven't watched that yet, anytime I check what is on it is nothing I'm particularly interested in, but I've seen ads for Being Human and other good shows.

Dr. Quinn</b> was very wholesome, from the same page as shows like The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie, but I like Janey Seymour and enjoyed the idea of her being a groundbreaking Western woman. Yes, Sully was the love interest, a guy who did things his way, was a friend to the local Indian Tribe, had long hair and ran around in tight buckskin trousers - only good looking guy on the show, lol.

Those screwball comedies were great, think my fave is The Philadelphia Story - I never get tired of rewatching those old films, whether comedies, musicals, suspense, horror...they seem to have a freshness each time, unlike most of the newer movies which once I've seen them I have no interest in seeing them again. There are exceptions, but I find too much dependence on flash, effects, and gimmicks in many modern films, and not enough emphasis on story, character and acting.

The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie were indeed also broadcast by the EO, so that makes sense. :)

Watched the video. Sully is a walking shampoo ad, the little headshake he gave at one point made me giggle. He is good looking though, I can imagine Dr. Quinn becoming unwholesomely hot and bothered when he is around.
