TV programmes that I regularly watch

I dont think that I watch that much TV - but I spend a lot of time watching missed episodes on BBC iPlayer and the like. Only mentions TV shows that are currently showing - although Buzzcocks has only a couple of episodes left. I have noticed that a lot of the programmes I watch dont have any reviews on them - I think they need them.
Criminal Minds
I am currently watching season 5 (being shown in America) online - otherwise I will have to wait about 8 months for the new season to start here. I have put this at number one because I look forward to it every week and get annoyed if I miss it. To be fair though I am disappointed with the seasons episodes so far - I think Season 4 was the best. I keep watching because i am hoping that it wil get better. I think that it is a show that is affected a lot by who is directing the episode. I am holding out for some improvements and fingers crossed my wish will come true.
I absolutely LOVE this show and have watched it since it first aired in 1996 - its in its 13th year. I love the format but the guests are the only questionable thing. The team captains are currently Phil Jupitus and Noel Fielding who are both very funny. I used to love it when Mark Lamarr hosted the show - but Simon Amstell just bugged me - now they are hostless - I am intrigued to know who will replace him as it currently has guest hosts. Its nearly the end of the series but it still goes on my list.
Gavin & Stacey
First episode of the new series was on TV last night -and I watched it :) I never watched this programme iin the first series but as soon as i did I was hooked. It is so funny on so many levels and it might not translate to other countries so well. The character Nessa is my favourite and Bryn too. Ro Brydon is such a good comedian.
I like this show - and I do like to watch it but it is new so they only show it on BBC3 and at some silly hour like 11pm, so iPlayer it is. Russell Howard is funny and his jokes are obcious but they are still funny. There is a bit at the end of the show where he talks about a piece of good news - a local hero type thing etc. I have difficulty in believing that there is no joke attached as he doesnt seem so sincere. But good light hearted fun.
This also started last night and came on just after Gavin and Stacey - Whats not to love aout Stephen Fry - and his guests are always of quality - AND you learn stuff too!
Title screen for Strictly Come Dancing
I have added this -but I only watch about 20 minutes of it on a saturday night - just to get an update. I like it because Ricky Whittle and Natalie Cassidy are still in it and they are very very very dishy (RW) and also really nice people (NC). Also with 82 year old Brucie, how can you go wrong.
I love his show with Debra Stephenson and Jon Culshaw -both great impressionists. The sketches are funny and great, I particularly love wayne and coleen, davina mccall and claudia winkelman, and the one show sketches. Laughed my socks off :)
The Graham Norton Show
I dont always watch this - it depends on the guests. His guests are always hit and miss. One week not so good the next brilliant. I like that all the guests are together on the sofa for the duration, I like the audience involvement and I love the bluntness of Graham Norton. I never was too keen on Anna Paquin but saw her on the show (watche dit because David Mitchell was on) and she won me over. She seems really funny, genuine and down to earth. A couple of weeks ago he had Rod Stewart and Dawn french on and Rod was great. I cant get his single out of my head now either. I forgot to mention that Pauolo Nutini was on with Anna PAquin and his performance was really good. It is in this positino on my list because of the inconsistent quality of guests.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

A show involving impressionist? Cool. It's sort of a lost art and one that I've always enjoyed. One of my favorites was Frank Gorshin. He used to do an hilarious bit--a conversation between Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. Watching him snap back and forth between those two characters was a real experience.

It is a dying art! But the people are so good. I guess it helps if you know the people/shows that they are doing impressions of, I guess its not that funny otherwise.

I have added some clips including one for the impressions show - I thought you might have heard of Simon Cowell and Anne Robinson!

Yep, Can't jelp but recognize them. I thought she came off a bit better than he did. Enjoyed seeing the clips.
