Call the midwife

HairyGrotter Tue 25-Dec-12 19:03:20

Call the Midwife, and Downton Abbey. Very poor show this year, bugger all on!

Room on the broom was excellent

SoleSource Tue 25-Dec-12 19:08:14

What was it gumby? A kids show?

Really? I thought it was crsp two yrs ago when they repeated 'The Gruffalo' despite it having been on the previous year.

We liked the snowman and snowdog and room on a broom. I watched tangled (dd was scared by it when it was released looks like she has grown up sad) and am looking forward to Call the Midwife after kids arre asleep.

Unless you're a soap fan, the only thing worth watching that's still to go is The Royle Family.

Really dislike Downton Abbey so that's off my list!

Well, there's my gurning juddering hero Brucie on Christmas Strictly.

He's already told Fabrice he's 'got rythym'.

VivaLeBeaver Tue 25-Dec-12 19:13:54

Dr who was ok.

Looking forward to call the midwife and Downton.

Miranda is on tomorrow.

Rubbish with a big fat capital R.!!

Our highlight was Toy Story after lunch today, still love it grin

MyLittleAprilSunshine Tue 25-Dec-12 19:16:00

The Royle Family is on, if you like that.
Presuming not an Eastenders fan, otherwise recommend that.

Lots of things on that I like but thought Dr Who was utter shite.WTF was that all about?

LadyBeagleBaublesandBells Tue 25-Dec-12 19:21:34

Struggling to find something too.
I gave up on the soaps a long time ago as they're so utterly depressing, and they up the ante at Christmas. Why would people on Christmas Eve and Night want to see death and divorce and downright misery?
I'll never get it.
I'm watching Lord of the Rings again for the umteenth time.
Isn't there a new Royle Family tonight?

MixedClassBaby Tue 25-Dec-12 19:23:02

Agree. Pile of wank.

tigerdriverII Tue 25-Dec-12 19:23:51

Unmitigated rubbish. 57 channels and nothing on, as the Boss says

degutastic Tue 25-Dec-12 19:25:46

I liked Doctor Who... But I'm MS-biased grin

Call the midwife in a few mins and Miranda tomorrow grin

Other than that, yea it's been rubbish!

degutastic Tue 25-Dec-12 19:27:50

that said, rubbish tv is a great excuse for me to watch my Star Trek TNG box set I was given this morning [geek]

Bunnygotwhacked Tue 25-Dec-12 19:29:34

Absolute garbage. Have given up.

degutastic Tue 25-Dec-12 21:25:52

I'd rather watch LOTR on dvd without adverts, but agree, totally great viewing grin

cocolepew Tue 25-Dec-12 21:28:23

ITV don't even try shock bloody Emmerdale, Corrie then Emmerdale again hmm

LouisWalshsChristmasCloset Tue 25-Dec-12 21:32:19

Toy story was the highlight for me, even though iv'e seen it one million and one times.
And what have we got to look forward to? I saw an ad for a programme where Tom daley? teaches slebs how to swim hmm ITV'll be needing a new barrel soon.
