Wot I bin watchin.
I seem to be watching less and less tv, or rather concentrating less and less on tv.
I am still enjoying my weekly dose of All Saints. You gotta have some schlock in your life. A couple of million other Australians agree with me. I have given up on The Bill, gradually. It was ok when it was one episode Tuesday night and one Saturday night. Two on Saturday night, which usually get taped, have to be watched later. Can't be bothered. Also given up on Desperate Housewives. They should have wrapped it up after the last series.
Collectors, tick. Can We Help, tick, although I find Peter Rowsthorn hard going. Media Watch, without fail, but usually on the pc when I have a spare five. Is it just me, or is Spicks and Specks getting a bit tired? I try and concentrate on Brothers Sisters, but my attention often drifts off.
I check who Peter Thompson is interviewing on Talking Heads. Maybe I will watch. Mostly I see Australian Story.
Often I tune in and out of Today Tonight, depending on the story. 7.30 Report is a must see, although I do sometimes miss it. Stateline really is a must see. Never miss it. I would like to watch every state edition of Stateline and I can on ABC2, but the times don't suit me, even if I had the time, and the tv to myself. I try to catch Landline, but Sunday noon is not a great time for me.
I have been watching East of Everything. Somewhat ponderous, but very pretty. There was a bit of gem on Channel Ten a few weeks ago. Forgotten the name now, but it was set in the Blue Mountains. Also very pretty.
Monday nights, ten pm on SBS never disappoints. After the very good show Skins finished, Synchronisity? started. Excellent!! Missed the last one, bugger. More are being made.
Einstein Factor! Bah, how do some people know so much about one thing. I don't have the passion nor the memory. Weird, but very watchable. I did rather well with geography last week.
Sometimes Meg and Dave on the Movie Show. I heard someone say recently that the best reason to give up smoking is to see Margaret's face. How cruel. I quite like her looks anyway.
Robin Hood has become more and more camp as it goes on. Bit of fun.
Stress Buster had been interesting. I love anything Management V Worker. I have seen one edition of Four Corners this year. Very worthy but would have to tape it and watch it later. I have enough tape confusion as it is.
Catalyst and The Cook and the Chef of course. I just adore Maggie and Simon and the way they interact.
Compass sometimes, ditto Enough Rope.
Sounds like I watch an awful lot of tv, but being a multi tasker, it is usually on while I am sitting here. Actually, not being a great multi tasker, I miss quite a lot of what I supposedly watch.
