I know what you mean about Smallville, it can be the most annoying over moralising programme on tv, and they haven't really known what to do with Lana for the last couple of years (the series in which she became part witch was particularly hideous), but every so often they pull an episode out of the bag which is fantastic to watch and really fun stuff.

There's been a lot more of the latter in Se6 and even the issue of Lana was resolved somewhat. But they've knocked the ongoing story up a few notches, and that's occupied enough episodes to make the  filler ones seem frustratingly out of place.

Hmmm, yeah, I guess I was being a bit harsh before because, as you say, this latest series has been a lot better. I've liked the way they've handled Lionel's relationship with Lex recently too, he's easily the most fascinating character in the series.

Pimp My Ride. Oh, and American Chopper. And Mythbusters. and CSI: Miami. God, looking back on it now. NZ TV schedules were full of nothing but this kind of stuff. We even used to watch *sob* Queer Eye. . .

Now people are just taking the piss. Right? Please say nobody actually watches Casualty or Pimp My Ride.

I watched an entire series of Casualty purely because there was this chick in it that I fancied. She is no longer in it.

She actually came into a pub I was drinking in a couple of times, but I was too chicken-shit to try and chat her up.

I've only seen Pimp My Ride UK, which is surprisingly tongue-in-cheek and enjoyably silly because of it.

It's perfectly OK if you've got an ulterior motive, though. Surely nobody actually gets enoyment out of the Casualty for the drama and the storylines?

Was it her: She was very nice.

I'll admit to have seen a fair amount of the O.C. It's actually alright, but it's not something I'd boast about.

Pimp My Ride is amazing!  TV these days is so crushingly bleak, it's all failure, rape and famine or people trying to screw each other over for a couple of hundred quid and three weeks in Now magazine.  PMR is all about helping someone out, making someone happy, brightening up a guy's day, BEING NICE.  It's beautiful, really.

Not my cup of tea though, I prefer to hurl abuse at Gok Wan these days.

Hey...I can't be the only one around here who likes watching Lazy Town? And no, it isn't "for the girl" (even though she was 16 in May anyway).

Erm...

I watched a show on discovery about a giant pig called 'Hogzilla'.

In fact I love all those deadly animal shows.

Prison Break, Shipwrecked, Beauty and the Geek (UK) are all programs which are fairly terrible but I could not stop watching.

New Tricks!

Actually no, it's pish and I run a mile whenever it's on.
Ha, I watch it. But I couldn't really tell you why...

Is it because you've got an insane crush on Denis Waterman?

That's why I watch it at least! (I was v. annoyed by having a repeat just chucked into the new series this past Monday.)

So, New Tricks, Neighbours and ER are my Guilty TV pleasures. Everything else I watch is ultra cool. Like Hustle an' that.

Embarrasingly, Coronation Street and Waking the Dead. Which is strange because I can't stand any of the rest of the respective genres.

Hollyoaks, although less so since Elize Du Toit and Tiffany Mulheron left. What? I'll be a dad in November then I'll be able to officially like it again.

Well, from some Internet stalking I did of my own accord some time ago, she's done work at the Bristol Old Vic*, you organise meets in Bristol. Ergo...

Also, she's fit, was in Casualty, but isn't anymore.

*Actually, isn't Casualty filmed in Bristol? If so, I was just lucky.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - still one of the best things on TV ever but always has that air of "you don't watch that, do you?" about it.  But if I had to pick my desert island DVDs the complete set of that would do me fine, I could re-watch it forever.

Also started to watch "Criminal Minds" on Living TV - like a poor man's CSI, don't quite know what it is but its compelling... that and "Law and Order SVU", but to be fair that's probably more about Mariska Hartigay than anything else
