I expect you can guess what our favourite programmes are but just in case, our favourite has to be.....
the X Factor. I watch it every year and for the past 2 Christmas's I have received 4 tickets to the X Factor live tour so the whole family have seen the performances of all our favs (and the others too!!) This season has been filled with controversy already and I too was shocked by Cheryl's choices but Cher proved she has potential last week, tho' the jury is out on Katie still.
I was sad to see FYD leave last week as I thought they were great and would love to see them live... why is Wagner still in??? I would never pay money to see him, perhaps he is this years Jedward?? Believe me they were worse in real life than on any of the TV shows.... truly shocking! So who are your favs? So far I am enjoying Mary, Aidan, Matt and Cher.
Our second favourite is Merlin, we have followed every episode since the show started. Much of the storyline is complete fantasy but it is always fun and me being a traditionalist loves the age old story of good conquering evil. Plus it has the added bonus of Giles (Anthony Head) from Buffy playing the role of Uther. We actually tend to watch Merlin on Sunday as the X Factor HAS to be watched live obviously!!
The last essential Saturday night viewing has to be Strictly come Dancing. It is definitely best recorded so you can fast forward through all the apalling Bruce Forsyth jokes. Again I have my favs and they do not include Paul Daniels or Anne Widdecombe though I do appreciate her quick wit with the judges ie Craig. Do you watch Strictly? Do you like Bruces jokes?? Lol!
No doubt you all manage to go out on a Saturday night, next weekend we'll be with family so I doubt we'll be watching our fave programmes... I suspect we'll survive.....just!
