I like watching TV, and make no apologies for it. I don’t watch anything and everything, but for those things I do like, I watch TV regularly. I suppose if I had to break it down into genres, most programmes would fall into the following main categories:
Movies – Oooh, I love movies! I’m not a great cinema-goer, so I love watching movies old and new on TV. (PS I include watching DVDs here, as I always watch them on my TV and it feels the same as choosing something on an available channel.)
Detective Dramas – especially movie-length-episode dramas like Endeavour or Vera or Foyle’s War or Lewis, and not forgetting Poirot and Miss Marple.
Historical Dramas – I love well-done historical adaptations of my favourite stories, with authentic costumes and manners and attention to detail.
Documentaries – I sound really boring, but I love factual programmes as much as fiction so find well-made documentaries fascinating, and I learn a lot from them.
Light Entertainment – I love Strictly Come Dancing, and the Great British Bakeoff, and Kirstie and Phil’s Love it or List it, and Long Lost Families, and Who Do You Think You Are? And sometimes old re-runs of Porridge and other similar 1970s sit-coms I grew up watching 🙂
