Some shows I really enjoy are on TLC. I've been hooked on Little People, Big World for a few years now and now one of my favorites is Table for 12. The latter is about a family of 12, two sets of twins, sextuplets and parents. One of the sextuplets has cerebral palsy and she is the cutest of the bunch. I don't know what it is about it, but I can watch that show and just cheer up instantly. 18 Kids and Counting is the last one, yes it's odd and different, but still enjoyable. :thumbsup:

I watch Little People Big World. It's a pretty good show. Matt gets pretty irritating at times though.
I hate all those other shows that feature families with hundreds of kids. It's nothing but 30 minutes of screaming brats. I can't help but think of the pic somewhere online that says "It's a vagina, not a clown car."

I used to watch Little People Big World but it got old for me. Okay, midgets are normal people. Unfortunately, they're just as boring as regular-sized people.

I've watched the multi-kids shows a few times when my sisters have them on at home but won't seek them out myself. There are way too many now. The kids on Jon and Kate Plus 8 are pretty funny, but Kate is annoying as all hell. We only ever watch the Duggars (87 Kids and Counting) to point and laugh, really. Now the 18 year old kid, who got married before being allowed to ever kiss his girlfriend, is going to be a father and continue to massively overpopulate the planet. And I'm sure that means a spin-off.

As for other TLC shows, I do enjoy those freak show nights they always seem to have - world's fattest man, world's tiniest people, tree man, mermaid girl, and so on. It's exploitative and I can only take so much at a time but a little bit is interesting here and there.

Lexx is one of those shows you cannot admit to watching.

They should retitle the programme: Jon minus Kate, divided by hate, times 20, plus 8

Just sayin'. :pleased:



Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The funny thing about this one is that the show is actually critically adored and is a touchstone for so many other shows like Torchwood and other ensemble shows.

You shouldn't be so embarrassed by it.

I watch Food Network a lot. I like shows that feature a behind-the-scenes look at how stuff is made and the history of favorite brands, such as Unwrapped and History Channel's American Eats.

Oh, and I saw a prevew for an episode of Ace of Cakes where they make a Stormtrooper helmet cake. Should air next week sometime... Thursday I think.

Ever since I was a kid I've always liked watching cooking shows, the main difference is I try to adapt the recipes to my skill (and budget) level.

Just spent a week with my 2 year daughter and I'm addicted to Fresh Beat Band.

I have no idea because it is stupid, but I catch myself singing their annoying songs.
I even Tivoed it for her.

I sometimes watch America's Top Model with my sister. (not sure I should admit this)

The girls are beautiful to look at. Some of the judges are ridiculously over the top. You also find out what a cold cruel world the modeling industry is. :whip:

I'm not really ashamed of it, but I've found myself watching episodes of Thundarr the Barbarian on Cartoon Network's sister network, Boomerang. I went ahead and began recording them on the DVR to keep. I watched it as a kid but had largely forgotten it. I've only recently rediscovered the show in the last couple weeks. Set in the year 3994, a trio of heroes roam the ruins of our civilization fighting for justice and aiding the meek. I've always had a weakness for post-apocalyptic stories. It's kinda unique for a cartoon's premise.

Some of the Disney Channel shows like Wizards of Waverly Place, Suite Life, Sonny with a Chance. Some of these shows are funnier than some shows on network TV.

I have noticed one on a cable station, Battlecam or something, which is quite possibly one of the worst shows I've ever seen. A split camera of webcams and you vote on which one you like better. Ugh. :(

Watched the first ep of the new season (season 7) of the excellent Foyle's War on PBS. Picks up a couple of years later after the original series ended, and Foyle, a retired British country police detective, is recruited by MI-5 to investigate new intrigue in post-World War II England, i.e., the Cold War and the Russians.

I watched that Mermaids: A Body Found special on Animal Planet this evening. I kind of stumbled upon it while channel surfing and I still don't know what to make of it. The entire show feels like an elaborate April Fools joke. All of their "video evidence" just feels staged and the "mermaids" are all clearly computer-generated. The fact that these videos are supposed to be recorded at different times and in different parts of the world; but every single "mermaid" looks identical. So it's clearly one CG model of a "fish man" that they are compositing into these videos.

Plus, the whole "secret military cover-up" plotline is so overused that it just destroys the credibility of the theory right out of the gate for me.

It was on Animal Planet? They only show documentaries, so it can't be fake.

The sad part is there are people (apparently a lot of them) out there who took that show to be 100% real. So much so that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) actually had to make an official statement that mermaids don't exist after being bombarded by concerned phone calls. :ermm:

Yeah, they did a follow-up program with more "indisputable evidence" and mentioned the statement from NOAA. Of course, they tried to claim that NOAA wouldn't have bothered to make the statement unless they had something to hide. They also used the fact that all of the Kardashians tweeted about the show and Kim Kardashian dressed up as a mermaid for Halloween last year as "evidence" that people were believing their story, so we should all believe it too. :rolleyes: Like I said, it's like an April Fools joke or a really subtle Saturday Night Live skit. I have a hard time understanding how anybody could take this seriously, but I have no trouble believing that people do.
