Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen TV Shows I Love

1. The West Wing
If only every politician was like Jed Bartlett...

2. 24
I love Kiefer Sutherland in this, but face it - you'd never want to work in CTU.

3. House
House really is a Mr Grumpy-Pants, but that's why we love him.

4. The A-Team
My favourite TV show as a kid - I had the biggest crush on Dirk Benedict.

5. Spooks
Losing its way slightly, but as long as Harry stays in it's ok. (Called MI-5 in the US)

6. Friends
The best comedy ever. Period.

7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
And Spike became my favourite from the moment he first graced the screen.

8. Judge John Deed
Ah, if only every Judge was like John Deed....

9. Everybody Loves Raymond
I have a fear of living too close to my in-laws and this is exactly why. Marie would be a saint in comparison.

10. Doctor Who
The new Russell T Davies series have been great and Billie Piper has been a revelation. It's about time there was a seriously sexy Doctor and David Tennant fits the bill.

11. Any nature series by David Attenborough
The greatest TV natural historian. Life in the Freezer is a masterpiece.

12. Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere
Peter Kay's funniest characters.

13. The Professionals
This is how the security services should act (or over-act). Bad perms and fast cars.

Everyone here has said hi. Go visit them.

1. Mommy at Home
2. Reverberate58
3. Red
4. Carmen
5. Dawn
6. Susan
7. Christine
8. Mrs Cranky Pants
9. tlc
10. Pink Chihuahua Princess
11. Wrigley
12. Norma

My favorite on your list is House- I don't miss an episode.

My TT is up

Paul Burgin said...

West Wing? Judge John Deed? And you are a Conservative? ;)

Louise said...


Yip. I enjoy fantasy shows! :-)

Reverberate58 said...

I love House, hubby loved West Wing, and I just couldn't get into Dr. Who but I tried!

My T13 is up. Have a Terrific Thursday!

Red said...

I was never much of a Doctor Who fan, but that all changed with the Christmas Invasion episode. David Tennant is seriously lovely. And to think I didn’t much like the look of that Casanova programme he was in. I’d eat my own arm to catch it now!

Oh, and I hear you about number 9...

PS: I don’t know if other people are having the same problem, but when I visit your blog, a chunk of your most recent post is obscured by the adorable Bowf.

Louise said...

I have moved the dog. Don't know if other people have the same problems - if they are still happening then bowf is back to the virtual dogs' home. With not so much as a cyber bonio to keep him company.

Carmen said...

OMG, another Buffy fan. I've got all of them on DVD. I'm a little obsessed. :)

Paul Burgin said...

"Yip. I enjoy fantasy shows! :-)"

What, like Fox News? Plus the daily fiction that is known as The Daily Mail? ;)

Louise said...

I love Fox News. Nothing makes me laugh more. Not even Friends.

As for the Daily Mail!!!! The only good thing about it is that it isn't the Guardian.

dawn said...

I loved the West Wing...I am sad that it is not on anymore (except for reruns, of course)

Susan said...

Some of these I don't know...but I LOVE House!!! It's just funny.

My TT is up here. Drop by for a visit sometime!!

Christine said...

Another Buffy fan, I liked Spike better than Angel too.!

Mrs. Cranky Pants said...

House. The only other show I like better is Nip/Tuck.

TLC said...

Jed Bartlett for President, definitely!

Love House. And Dr. Who? Classic!

Currently, I love Footballers Wives. It makes Desperate Housewives look like Romper Room!

If you like Buffy, and like Sci-Fi, try to catch Firefly. Excellent. I like the tv show, NOT the movie!

Thanks for visiting my T13.

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

The only one of these I've seen quite a bit of is Friends. You are is just so funny!

Happy Thursday!

wrigley said...

my 13's up!

Norma said...

These are (were) some great shows. We are really enjoying "The Closer" sort of like a female Columbo (detective).

My TT is up.
