TV Blog Fest

It’s today! Time to share MY ten favourite TV programmes, old and new. Please visit others who have signed up for the blogfest. I bet you find a TV treasure you’d long since forgotten about or something new to find out about…

Some great writing with humour, drama and humanity and sometimes a little love!


Counting down from 10 to 0:Star Trek Generations, Bewitched, Ballykissangel, Takin' Over the Asylym, Sleepers, Cold Feet, Desperate Housewives, The Missing Postman, Poldark, Rotter's Club,  See You Friday 
Of course, I should also have added Preston Front, Onedin Line, Porridge, Red Dwarf, Flambards, Only Fools & Horses and The New Adventures of Superman
(with Dean Cain & Terri Hatcher)
Mostly British TV Choices


  1. never heard of any of these... nope not one...

  2. I've just started watching Desperate Housewives and it's very good. Some of the shows on your list I don't know, like Rotter's Club. I'll have to google!

  3. I knew a few of these, I must say I loved the presentation of your post.


  4. I can't believe how many Trekkies there are in the blog world! It's been fun seeing what everyone has on their list! Bewitched was a classic. I used to watch reruns of that with I Dream of Jeanie. Loved those shows!

  5. Oh Bewitched, how could I forget that one, I loved it.

  6. All right - Star Trek! It's cool how everyone is doing their Top 10 a little different.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  7. Great choices!! Alex had such a brilliant idea!

  8. star trek the next generation was the first show we watched when my family got a tv! and bewitched- total classic!

  9. Bewitched was on my list, but I haven't seen any of the others you've listed.

    Tossing It Out

  10. I wish now I could have added Red Dwarf to my list too. Yes I can imagine a lot of mine seem quite obscure British stuff. ;O)
    And thank you Yvonne :O)

  11. Star Trek! Love it. Not familiar with a lot of the other ones you mentioned.
    W.I.P. It: A Writer's Journey

  12. Desperate Housewives was soooo great when I watched it. Lost track after a while of missing episodes.

  13. Hello Madeleine, I like Desperate Housewives and Bewitched! :)

  14. Thanks ladies
    I love all my choices and looking at them again gives me a smile.I'm planning to do a similar Blogfest this weekend on novels. :O)

  15. Cousin, I'm counting 11 pictures. So that makes it your top 11? lol you probably wish that you hadn't given me your blog site. :o) Elizabeth Montgomery was hot on Bewitched. I remember a scene in the original Star Trek that scared me because I was only a few years old. That's the black and white one's with William Shatner, a proud Canadian by the way.

  16. Yes that's true Cuz, but then the organiser of this fest also had 10 to 0 which makes 11 so I followed his lead and then added a few on the bottom that didn't quite make the list LOL!
    Great you joined my blog. Good to see you here, another proud Canadian. :O)

  17. My favourite shows here in Canada are; "Fringe" a sci-fi directed by J. Abrams who did the latest remake of Star Trek. "Dexter", a serial killer with a heart. "Battle of the Blades", a mixing of retired NHL hockey players and figure skating's top women skaters. CBC produced. "Survivor" and anything David Suzuki. Like "The Nature of Things", educational shows on nature and science. Well that's 4 out of 10.

  18. Thanks for adding your 4/10 Cuz, I've been told Dexeter is really good and I have not heard or seen any of your choices. Interesting :O) x
