To ask what TV series you have stuck with?

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

Shows currently on the air:
The Big Bang Theory
(And lots of others that are 5 seasons or less so not been on that long)
Tbh I work in PR for many of these shows so I have to stay up to date with a lot. Enjoying them is a bonus.

Shows off the air before I got into PR:
Sex and the City

Holby city I love it

Greys and Law & Order SVU. Also just rediscovered Gilmore Girls on Netflix so getting stuck back into that!

elephant one day I was driving home from work and was complaining about how slow the ambulance in front of me was travelling. I finally overtook it on a stretch of dual carriageway to discover that it was a Holby ambulance with Josh inside and it was being filmed from another vehicle driving in front of it.

High Five Toasty as I said up thread it was originally filmed in my home city. I used to love pointing out the geographical errors eg you couldn't be on the Portway and then magically turn into Knowle West.

MrsMoastyToasty Thu 28-Feb-19 23:23:05

Casualty. It used to be filmed in my home town of Bristol so DH and I would work out where the ambulances were going.
Back in the day I watched every single episode of Brookside.

One Tree Hill
The OC
Sons of Anarchy
Breaking Bad
The Walking Dead (though my love for it is wearing thin)
Game of Thrones
Pretty Little Liars

Greys! I felt it lost it a bit after....... but boss it’s back and op I agree with you Deluca is just lovely 😍

NigellaAwesome Thu 28-Feb-19 22:50:58

Greys - although feeling it is getting boring and formulaic.

Lost - I was

Breaking Bad

Modern Family - love it

Orange is the new black. I binge watched the first season just before the second season was released then binge watched each of the next seasons as they came out.

plominoagain Thu 28-Feb-19 22:47:09

Oh yeah to Chicago Fire !
Criminal Minds
Hawaii Five O
All the CSI’s

I think there’s a theme there ..

Every episode of the Simpsons ( family tradition )
I watch Greys with my DS as DH doesn’t do medical dramas !

Tawdrylocalbrouhaha Thu 28-Feb-19 22:44:39

Desperate Housewives (and I'm still angry about that shitey shitey ending).

WoollyMummoth Thu 28-Feb-19 22:39:36

In my teens I loved Robin of Sherwood. I even stuck with it when the gorgeous Michael Praed was replaced by Jason
I moved on to Xena Warrior
Princess, loves every episode and still comfort watch them now.
Also can happily watch endless reruns of Big Bang Theory.

OwlinaTree Thu 28-Feb-19 22:36:58

Lol no one had put mine... Doctors! Started watching on Maternity leave 5 years ago and been taping it ever since! It's so bad but I love it!

alaric77 Thu 28-Feb-19 22:36:16

Buffy, Angel, Charmed, Allie Mcbeal, Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries, Ghost Whisperer, Medium.

ParmaViolet44 Thu 28-Feb-19 22:34:11

Oh wow, I realised I could have written half of these replies myself if I expanded my list!
Supernatural - just started re-watching as I LOVED that show, currently on Season 3. They are just stupidly handsome.
Firefly - so tragic that it got cancelled, it was so different and well written
Buffy/Angel - watched them both to the bitter end, still re-watch occasionally, although David Boreanaz/SEAL Team is a really good watch now.
Watched all of West Wing too, twice!

Greys is the only one I think I watch that is still running currently. I did get to about season 12 of Criminal Minds and then lost it slightly so need to restart that from somewhere! Never got over my ridiculous crush on the guy that played JJ's husband? The cop from New Orleans. blush

Greys - Deluca is definitely making me come over all unnecessary at the moment too...grin

OkOkWhatsNext Thu 28-Feb-19 22:33:52

Also ER. Enjoyed rewatching the whole lot on several maternity leaves!

OkOkWhatsNext Thu 28-Feb-19 22:33:02

The West Wing. Have watched it all through many times. Currently rewatching season 6 and enjoying it again alongside The West Weekly Weekly podcast (fans may recognise my username), which is giving it all a whole new lease of life!

Osirus Thu 28-Feb-19 22:31:53

Walking Dead, Coronation Street.

Some old ones like Friends, SATC, and the fabulous wonder that was ER. Also loved Ally McBeal, though it did get a bit weird towards the end.

Lulurollup Thu 28-Feb-19 22:25:16

It was Greys but I can’t watch anymore- it’s like a whole new show. Was never the same since ... (you’ll know what- don’t want to spoil wink). Still weepily watch the old episodes missing the characters as if they’re real people

MagicKeysToAsda Thu 28-Feb-19 22:18:47

Joining the Greys love.
And Buffy.
And House.

CaptainJaneway62 Thu 28-Feb-19 22:18:38

Agree with @NurseButtercup New Amsterdam is a definitely a brilliant series and is better than G A. Half way through the first episode I said to myself "Oooh this is good!" smile

CaptainJaneway62 Thu 28-Feb-19 22:14:12

Dr Who from the very first episode - hiding behind the sofa as a kid when the Daleks first appeared!! Even the music scared the life out of me but I was addicted to the tv series from the start and still am.

(you may have guessed from my user name!,)Star Trek, Star Trek The Next Generation, Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek Enterprise, and now watching Star Trek Discovery Netflix.

Holy City from the very fist episode.
Call the Midwife - I think it's the nostalgia of growing up in the 50's and 60's as a kid that makes me love the series.
Grey's Anatomy rewatching on Amazon

I am also a fan of all the different Marvel and DC comics TV series and films
especially Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Agent Carter Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Arrow, Gotham, The Flash.

Starburst - OMG, I forgot about The Mentalist!

I LOVE that programme! Love it love it love it.

I was properly tearing up at the ending (happy tears). Can't believe I forgot about it!

Sophiathefortyfirst Thu 28-Feb-19 21:55:12

I've always watched the Big Bang Theory. Gutted it's ending!
