I just finished watching this week's Grey's Anatomy, Season 15 episode 14. I just checked and it's been running since 2005! It pre-dates my marriage and 2 of my children and yet I still watch it religiously every week. I've stayed with it all these years and can't explain why!

Even though it is often ridiculous/utter pants and I get pissed off when characters die predictably (usually when they're happy and everything is going swimmingly for them!) I always forgive it and come back and start watching again.

Anyone else have a long term relationship with a TV series? grin

As a teenager I used to watch Morse, then Lewis now Endeavour love them all

Supernatural. It’s the only series that hasn’t lost its way or gone off the boil.

Okay I only started Grey’s a few months ago but I’m on S11 ep21 half way through and BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING and maybe I should just turn it off and never watch it again and they all have long, happy lives full of appropriately-timed CT scans, yeah? wibbles

Currently rewatching all of sex and the city. However, I also like a bbc comedy like Alan partridge, the office, more recently fleabag and c4 classic Father Ted!

Holby City. I was shock when I realised it was 20yrs old this year. Never missed an episode.

Casualty. I’ve watched it since the first episode. I was only 10 or 11 when it started so it feels like It’s like a warm comforting link back to my childhood.

Friends, watch the whole series on a loop, usually an episode at night to fall asleep to, then at the end of series 10 start again.

And Only Fools and Horses, never fails to make me laugh and I know it backwards smile

Ha I instantly thought greys but because I went off it about 4 years ago yet still slog on

Only 17 episodes behind now with little motivation to catch up

Oh and walking dead utter dross but still on going

BobbinThreadbare123 Thu 28-Feb-19 20:27:19

Sons of Anarchy
Red Dwarf
Buffy

Holby City I've watched since the first episode. Even in phases when it's annoying or boring me.

jcmayj Thu 28-Feb-19 20:28:34

SATC, Friends and Desperate Housewives

BrizzleMint Thu 28-Feb-19 20:29:49

Casualty for me as well, I watched it when it first started and I still watch it now.

WillGymForPizza Thu 28-Feb-19 20:29:57

Corrie for me as well, and Eastenders. And erm... Neighbours.

Dontstepinthecowpat Thu 28-Feb-19 20:30:39

Greys. I am so attached to it and the characters. I’d probably ditch my DH for Alex Karev. I’ve rewatched it during my pregnancies and never miss an episode

ooooohbetty Thu 28-Feb-19 20:31:27

@PuppyMonkey Corrie is a habit for me too. I put it on but don't really watch it half the time.

DanielRicciardosSmile Thu 28-Feb-19 20:31:35

Buffy. I like to think I could have it as my chosen specialist subject on Mastermind, but they'd probably ask questions like "Who played the clown that scared Xander?" so I couldn't really.

Moonflower12 Thu 28-Feb-19 20:31:36

@TwoleftUggs
Me too - except I was 17 when it started but still a link to being at home with no real responsibility!

neuroticnumpty Thu 28-Feb-19 20:31:53

Greys too!!!
As so many of you have said Buffy I might give it a try. Is it light hearted or make me anxious at all??

elephantoverthehill Thu 28-Feb-19 20:34:36

Casualty for me too. I have watched since uni, 30 odd years ago. It used to be filmed in my home city and knew people who worked on it. The family take the mick out of me.

WhoGivesADamnForAFlakeyBandit Thu 28-Feb-19 20:35:02

Doctor Who!

I've watched all of many things - I could watch certain Buffy episodes again and again, I could watch all of the West Wing again. I can dip in and out of Frasier.

But Greys, Suits, Scandal, How to get away with Murder - all could have been done in 3-4 series max. They haven't changed/evolved as much as e.g. Homeland has.

BareBelliedSneetch Thu 28-Feb-19 20:36:26

Neighbours. I must have been watching it for 30 yrs. (had a bit of a break at one point).

Other series that I’ve watched all of are Buffy, ER, Friends, black books (but there are only 3 series of that) death in paradise, call the midwife, doctor who.

FrenchyQ Thu 28-Feb-19 20:36:43

Greys Anatomy too
Dexter...the ending was highly disappointing
Lost....first time around the ending felt underwhelming but watched it all the way through again and it felt like it all made sense.
