TV Guilty Pleasure

TV Guilty Pleasure

"Pass the Bonbons, Please"

As I perused the main screen today, I see the same thing as I did last Friday.  Arguing and name-calling and refusal to come together.  So I thought I would do something fun, at least for my own sake.

Do you have a TV guilty pleasure?  Is there some show you watch that you would be totally embarrassed to tell your co-workers you watch?

Mine is Days of Our Lives.  I have watched for decades.  I have watched different writers ruin great characters and create other good characters.

My favorite character on the soap is Hope Williams Brady (she may have married Rafe, but I refuse to acknowledge that blunder).  Supercouple Bo & Hope forever.... Rafe was such a bad husband his first wife went back to the man that raped her.  (Personally I hate that soap theme where sexual assault survivors fall in love wit their rapists - in my mind it diminishes the true impact of rape).  

Any one have any they want to admit to?

I think everyone deserves a second chance but I cannot believe what some of these women and men do when they hook up with these convicts/ex-convicts.

I cannot stand Liz - she is really using Scott.  He is broke now - but he shouldn't have sent her his money.  

Clint married that girl a day out of prison and she is crack addict.  He just gives her his credit card.

I wonder if the show is reimbursing these people?

I don't get how they can marry people that they haven't spent any time with.  It's like that other show Wedding at first sight.  They have to pay these people.

The Andy Griffith Show, on twice in a row on ME TV early evenings.

I have watched every episode of the new series FBI on CBS since September. The plots arent rocket science, but the actors are pretty good and the production values are excellent. 

 
 
 
Veronica

Never got into Andy Griffith - I think it is because I never cared for Don Knotts.

I just saw the promo for FBI - I think I may be checking it out.

 
 
 
JohnRussell
4.1.1  JohnRussell  replied to  Veronica @4.1    8 months ago

I'm not really a big Don Knotts fan either, but to me Andy Griffith is a perfect show. It is funny, it shows small town life in the early 60's (for those of us who have never lived in a small town) , and it has a moral to most of the stories.

The Andy Griffith Show - Wikipedia

https:// en.wikipedia.org /wiki/ The_Andy_Griffith_Show

The Andy Griffith Show . On separate occasions, it has been ranked by TV Guide as the 9th-best and 13th-best show in American television history, respectively.

When reality gets to be too bothersome, I turn to....reality. 

Shows like "Deadliest Catch" and "This Old House"  Been watching so long these people seem just like family.

"Survivor" is another bad habit  When I'm not wasting time here, I can occasionally be found on YouTube watching stuff like this.

Or for mere relaxation, videos like this.

I hope that watching ToH isn't a guilty pleasure or I'm in deep doodoo. I've probably seen every episode multiple times.  More than 50% of the time I'm watching TV its one of the PBS channels. My guilty pleasure would have to be Law and Order and NCIS reruns or Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I hate Guy Fieri's frat-boy antics but I've picked up a few recipes from that show.

I don't think that I've ever watched Criminal Intent.

I enjoy Lenny, Iced-T and Munch too.  Did you ever see Homicide Life on the Streets?  Richard Belzer was on that show too.  I think it predates all the law and order shows because Munch talks about that show on SVU.  The show was also based in Baltimore.   They filmed by my dad's bookshop one day in Ellicott city and one of the actors came in one day and bought some books for his daughter There was an episode on Homicide where a guy was trapped under a subway.  Reminds me of my best friend who committed suicide after stepping in front of a subway train.  Vincent D'Onofrio played that character on that episode which brings me to Criminal Intent which he was one of the lead detectives on the major case squad.   He's one of my favorite actors.

He's one of the best dressed on that show....now

Can't say I feel guilty about it but I do like watching Dr Pimple Popper.  Obviously it's about pimples, cysts, blackheads, ketoids, lipomas, etc and is pretty explicit and gross but I can't look away, lol.

Thanks for the change up, imo we can use more seeds like this

Historical Documentaries are my guilty pleasure.

Crime Drama is the second. Starting with the FBI. (the 60's-70's version) Adam 12, Dragnet, Mod Squad was a fav, Ironside, but then I'm dating myself also.....

Slapstick Comedy series come next....... Social justice comedy not so much.....

There is no great plethora of good television today.... most of it is trash.....

I did not start enjoying crime drama until I was older.  With historical documentaries I prefer the ones going way back, but do watch the WWI & WWII ones with my hubby.  

I think comedies were forever ruined with the invention of the laff track.

Since I am not a big fan of "reality" TV I do find it hard to find shows to entertain me.

Yeah the whole Genre started with "Victory at Sea" there were a few minor efforts at it then there was the blockbuster that put them on the map for good...

"The Ten Thousand Day War". Michael Maclears classic..

And then the greatest one ever made, Ken Burns "The Civil War"

I have all of them, maybe I'll post them someday.... (and thousands of others)

The Laff track is, usually from the late '50's early 60's.... in fact they actually pace the shows to fit the track sometimes depending on how sophisticated the techs are behind the show....

Me too.  Since I live alone, it's like company.  I was lost when my TV died on me at Christmas time.  Until I downloaded everything on my phone.  I couldn't connect to my home wifi for some reason until one of my best friends helped me figure out how.  I used up 6 gigs of data

Well that was taken care of by my best friend and his husband.  When I texted them that my TV died, they said Santa would take care of that.  

He used to head computer security at Amtrak before he retired and he was the one who figured out why I wasn't connecting to my home wifi

Aww. That was nice of them.

I have gone through two flat screens. The one I have now has a dark spot on the left side of the screen. Irritating. At least they are not as expensive as they use to be.

Funny thing, I have an old big box tv in the bedroom. I don't want to get rid of it because I've never had a problem with it. Thing will probably last another 20 years.

Funny you should say that.  The first time they had it delivered to their house.  When Frank got it out of the box and plugged it in, the screen was shattered.  Bummer!

Luckily he was able to take it right back to Costco and replaced and he came back the next day to set it up

 I still have a huge old Sony CRT and it works fine. I feel cheap for not replacing it with a bigger flat screen but I watch so little TV that its not something that is a high priority.  If it happens it will be because my BF wants a bigger screen for sports.

My son has broken 2 flat screen TVs.  The first was when he was 3.  He was trying to kill a fly.

The second was when he was playing on his Xbox and his controller slipped out of his hand when he got worked up.

He now only connects his Xbox to the TV he bought with his own money.  If he breaks that, no Xbox.

The long and short of it was a certain poster was getting away with certain things that when other posters did the same thing they got in trouble for it and had their accounts suspended so many people left the site due to the unfairness over it, the chief moderator relented and asked people to come back but the damage had been done. 

What was once a thriving site now has very few people posting comments and transcribing the feeds.

Ah, thanks. I think I have only checked them out once or twice. I know a lot of people use Jokers too.

It was a good site, they didn't tolerate any bs, but again after the incident it went down hill, I do use Jokers and Morty's just to read up on the live feeds transcription.

Not on TV but I like to watch urban explorers, (they explore abandon houses, farms, schools, etc) on Youtube.

I haven't seen that but it looks interesting.

I did see this one vid where some young men decided to check out an abandoned camp, like an old summer camp, during the night. While they were checking out some of the out buildings they looked and saw a man standing by one building. Just standing there by himself in the middle of the night.

It freaked them out and they left.

The Young And The Restless - It has the best eye candy of all of the soaps.

Rugrats - I AM Angelica

Most all of the cooking competitions, especially Cake Wars

Tiny House Nation

Tree House Masters

Perry Mason - Paul Drake is crazy sexy

Hoarders - I am a total neat freak so I like to see if a total transformation happens

Live PD - Sean "Sticks" Larson....nuff said

Night Gallery - prefer it to The Twilight Zone for the most part

Swengoulie - 12 on the Wierd-O-Meter reading but great old B horror movies and occasionally the infamous worse of the directors, so bad he is addicting.........Ed Wood.

I really like to watch hoarders also.  I find it fascinating, not just to see the before and after but also to learn what prompted the behavior.

Will have to check out Swengoulie. What network is that on?

Dear Friend Veronica: Not sure Netflix programming is relevant tot his article.

If not, please delete this post.

Every Saturday night that Mrs. E. and I are home alone we watch a movie on Netflix.

This is our time together during the week.

Just us.

We also binge watch Israeli, German and Spanish language TV series on Netflix.

They are not available on general television.

One we presently watch the Shteisel.

It is an Israeli TV series about Haredi (Ultra Orthodox) generations family in Jerusalem and B'nai B'rack.

I taught at Rabbinical Semanary's in both communities, including Ultra-Orthdox ones.

When Mrs. E. and I first met and got to know one another we were both in Jerusalem.

The series is in the Hebrew and Yiddish languages.

Subtitles are available.

Neither of us need them.

Very accurate.

It shows no matter what communities in the world a series is about, people are people are people.

Universal themes, heights and depths, triumphs and problems abound.

Good series that.

Mrs. E. and I are favorably disposed toward well written and acted programming that challenges the mind and touches the heart strings.

E.

I might check that out - as long as there are subtitles.

Dear Friend Veronica: Thanks.

There are subtitles available in English for programming in any language in the world with Netflix.

Hope the winter goes well for you and yours.

In February when the weather clears up lets see if the four of us can't get together and meet in person.

Maybe do some Valentine's Day sun bathing at Hamlin Beach.

E.

I've found some shows that I would like to watch but they're either in German, Russian, or Hebrew. They have subtitles but I like to "listen" to my TV not "read" it.

Maybe I'll get one of those foreign language programs and learn German

Do you ever watch it and talk back to the "scientists"?

I'm constantly laughing at them or arguing with them.

Still, my favorite is the orange Greek guy with the crazy hair. I can never remember his name

Mysteries at the Museum.  Although I guess that doesn't need to be a guilty pleasure.  Unless one spends one's entire Sunday watching it and eating.

That was a good show, certainly nothing to be guilty of.  Only bad thing I can say is there weren't enough episodes.
