TV Show Meme

Ok, I'm home sick today so I'm bored. Here we go...

1. Name a TV show series in which you have seen every episode at least twice: This is so easy I almost hate to say it. I've seen every episode of Buffy at least 4 times!
2. Name a show you can’t miss: Currently and for the last 4 years, it's Lost. I became addicted on day 1 when I saw the plane crash on the beach. The rest is history.
3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to watch a show: This is hard. I'm likely to watch anything that has actors who were on Buffy. But then I'm more likely to watch anything created by Joss Whedon. Can we pretend he's an actor for the sake of this meme?4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show: Richard Dean Anderson. He will always be MacGyver. I loved the movie Stargate but can't make myself watch the show because he's in it. I just don't take him seriously.

5. Name a show you can, and do, quote from: Buffy. Sensing a theme?

6. Name a show you like that no one else enjoys: I loved Firefly but no one else must have watched it at the time because it only lasted one season. I;ve heard others say they loved it after watching it AFTER IT WENT OFF THE AIR. Where were all you people while it was on?

7. Name a TV show which you’ve been known to sing the the

me song: Cheers, Growing Pains
8. Name a show you would recommend everyone to watch: Dollhouse. This is Joss Whedon's new one and the first episode was really good.

9. Name TV series' you own: Buffy and Rosswell. They're so expe

nsive that I've stopped buying them and started renting them through Netfliz. I've rented Alias (which I watched while it was on but I got my mom addicted to it and we had to watch all the episodes in order), Supernatural (because it comes on at the same time as Grey's now and I love both!), Gossip Girl, Firefly (because I loved it so much), and I'm currently going through Dark Angel. I wish I'd watched that one while it was on. It's really good.

10. Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium, but has surprised you with his/her acting choices in television: I'm going to say Sarah Michelle Geller because I consider Soap Operas another medium! I watched when she was on ALl My Children, that's why I didn't watch the first season of Buffy until someone else got me into it the summer after.

11. What is your favorite episode of your favorite series? I have a lot of favorite episodes but I have to go with the Prom episode in season 3 of Buffy. It makes me cry every time.

12. Name a show you keep meaning to watch, but you just haven’t gotten around to yet: Weeds. I don't have cable but I plan on renting the seasons through Netflix someday.

13. Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad? I stopped watching Heroes this season because it's just awful now. I really liked this show too. So very disappointing.

14. Name a show that’s made you cry multiple times: Buffy, Grey's, Friends, Lost (they keep killing off my favorite characters!)

15. What do you eat when you watch TV? Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner if I'm by myself. Nothing if I have company.

16. How often do you watch TV? A couple times a week for Grey's and Lost.

17. What’s the last TV show you watched? I watched Dollhouse online yesterday.

18. What’s your favourite/preferred genre of TV? Science fiction.

19. What was the first TV show you were obsessed with? Don't remember but I'm sure there was something before Buffy.

20. What TV show do you wish you never watched? Doesn't bother me so much I wish I'd never watched a whole show but there's an episode from the early days of CSI that still haunts me. It's about some teenagers that do s
ome kind of drug and two of them eat a third ALIVE. I still have nightmares.

21. What’s the weirdest show you enjoyed? Roswell? Is that weird?

22. What TV show scared you the most? See #20

23. What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched? hmmmm, Friends, or Fraiser. Why did they stop making funny shows?

24. What show was cancelled too early? My so called life. I really loved that show and it ended without any kind of resolution. Is it too late to bring them all back for another season?

I loved My So Called Life too! put episodes from Season 1 on their website over the summer. I watched all of them again.

I have NEVER seen a Buffy episode. Are they really that good?

YESSS! If you can get through the first season (which is good but not as much as the rest) and start watching the second, I guarantee you will be addicted.
