I really love doing memes but I am so picky about which ones I do these days. Plus super busy! But yesterday I was feeling really ill so I did memes to pass the time. Today I am posting them for your viewing pleasure. lol (next post will be less frivolous....promise!)

Name a TV show series in which you have seen every episode at least twice: 

Leverage (it’s still airing though), Community (ditto) , Avatar: the last airbender, Spaced, Ashes to Ashes, Life on Mars, Pysch (well almost every episode) The Chappelle Show (actually I think I’ve seen most of the episodes 3 maybe 4 times…), Supersizers, Salute Your Shorts and the Adventures of Pete and Pete ( however my second viewing of both these shows was over 10 years after the first time I watched lol) Oh oh and Angry Beavers, pretty much I think. (goddamit Viacom, where is my DVD?) oh and probably Rugrats and Hey Arnold too but I am not so sure about those. 

Name a (current) show you can't miss:

Community, Leverage, Psych, Ashes to Ashes, White Collar, True Blood. 

Name an actor that would make you more inclined to watch a show:

hmm, oh well if any of the actors of my current fave shows do other shows after this I’d be more inclined to watch said shows. Though I really watch for a favorite writer or an interesting plot, rarely for a particular actor. 

Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show:

Keanu Reeves, he’s just so WOODEN. Robin Williams, too cheesy and I want to say Tom Cruise cause he’s too smirky and smarmy but damn I did love his Lestat. I am torn!

Name a show you can, and do, quote from.

It’s funny, I am terrible at quoting shows. Like I remember proverbs and whole poems and song lyrics without much trouble but I always forget tv quotes even for shows I love and I rarely know when to interject them into conversation appropriately :( 

Name a show you like that no one else enjoys:

I don’t know about NO ONE else, but there really needs to be more Leverage fans!
 
Name a TV show which you've been known to sing the theme song:

Pysch! “I know you know, that I’m not tellin the truth” and Community “I cant count the reasons I should stay~ one by one they all just fade away, do do” and True Blood has an awesome theme song, I don’t know if I’ve I make it a habit to sing though lol. Oh and the Malcom in the Middle theme song. That was a fun one. I don’t now about sing, but I definitely hum the theme song to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia a lot. 

Name a show you would recommend everyone to watch:

Leverage! Community! I would also recommend Spaced to anyone who loves Simon Pegg and or is a huge geek or pop culture junkie. It’s just a brilliant funny and geektastic show full of pop culture references and an adorable Simon Pegg (and Nick Frost!). Also It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which to me is hysterical. 

Name TV series you own:

Leverage S1, IASiP S1-4, Adv of Pete & Pete, Salute your Shorts (I burned this one on a dvd rather than bought it but technically, I DO own it lol) Spaced, State of Play, LOM , A2A, Hex, Are you afraid of the dark? S1, I also have a bunch of asian dramas I burned in their entirety onto various dvds. 

What is your favourite episode of your favourite series?

I…this is impossible to answer lol. I have more than one fave show and more than one fave episode! Well I'll do one series then (or I'd be at this for ages lol) Leverage – Bank Shot Job, First David Job, Two Live Crew Job, Iceman Job.

A show you mean to watch, but you just haven't gotten around to yet:

Burn Notice (I started but got distracted) The Wire, Lost (I used to watch it, dropped it and now I am thinking of picking it back up again) and a shit load of Korean dramas. (don’t ask) I also keep meaning to watch more Classic Doctor Who (I’ve only seen a bit of doctors 4 and 7’s series so far)

Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?

LOL. I have quite so many shows. Heroes, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Rescue Me, Life (it started out so great too) Gossip Girl, Glee, The Mentalist and most recently Merlin.  

Name a show you aren't interested in watching, not in the least:

Dollhouse, 24, NCIS, Bones (my dad recently fell in love with this show and keeps asking me what I dislike it so much lol) 

Name a show that's made you cry multiple times:

Community made me cry XD that one episode of Lost that centered on Mr Eko’s past made me cry my eyes out. Oh and the final ep of New Doctor Who’s first series (the end of Nine ;_;) other than that it’s mostly been movies to make me cry. 

Oldest TV show you like?

Oldest as in how old the show is or or how long I’ve been watching it? Let’s go with the former, I would say Doctor Who but I haven’t seen much Classic Who and New Who started in 05, so really the oldest ones I like would be those nick shows: are you afraid of the dark, salute your shorts, adv of pete and pete. All from the early to mid 90’s. 

Newest TV show you like?
Community <3 and Modern Family

What do you eat when you watch TV?

if I eat anything it's popcorn, yogurt or a banana.

How often do you watch TV?

for as long as my show is on. I only turn on the tv to watch my weekly programs or the occasional movie or IMF and LinkTv videos.

Do you have a favorite talk show?

The Daily Show and the Colbert Report are the only talk shows I’ve ever been able to stand (I love those guys <3)

What's the last TV show you watched?

White Collar. episode 9 :D

What's your favourite/preferred genre of TV?

don’t have one. I enjoy a mix of genres generally (I love a show that can mix humor and drama well and effectively use both as central to the plot) 

What's your least favourite genre of TV?

Reality tv, Soap operas, and most science fiction shows. (I really dont know why, I dont dislike  it in theory but somehow the way most sci fi novels or tv shows go I just end up feeling very bored or annoyed. Yes even Battlestar Galactica. Doctor Who is a rare exception and that’s in part because they will occasionally go back in time, which I LOVE.)

What was the first TV show you were obsessed with?

Sailor Moon! and Power Rangers. And if you REALLY wanna go back far, then My Little Pony. I loved that show and I am not ashamed! (mostly cause I was 7 at the time) the funny thing was I didn’t really care about owning any ponies…

What TV show do you wish you never watched?

Glee, it lied and deceived me into thinking it was a sweet and fun harmless show! Only to slap me in the face with racism and irritating stereotypes and finally latent misogyny *curses* But otherwise it’s rare I hate a show so much that I wish I never watched it even after I drop it from my watch list. 

What's the weirdest show you enjoyed?

Doctor Who, Lost, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes. There may be others but I can’t think of them. 

What TV show scared you the most?

oh man any episode of doctor who that Stephan Moffat wrote, *still creeped out by Blink* and that one about evil sun aliens or something. Oh and any episode from are you afraid of the dark that involved clowns. I HATE CLOWNS. And that one with the creepy specs. *shudders* still gives me the heebs! That’s all I can think of though.

What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched?

The Chappelle Show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community and Psych all make/made me laugh real hard. (oh do Looney Tunes count? Cause those hilarious too)

Which do you think is the best TV series ever made?

I have no idea. That’s a hard decision to make! I suspect when I see The Wire I’ll choose that one as that is what everyone who has seen it told me.
