Rubbish/bizarre telly-watching confessional time

I'll start with UK Border Force and the Australian Customs version. I just cannot get enough of people trying to smuggle dodgy beef in their suitcases into Melbourne for no apparent reason, or illegal waiters denying all knowledge of their birthdays.

And on days off I can't miss Homes Under The Hammer, mainly for the inspired way they manage to find music to match anything that anyone says. Someone will paint a wall purple, and they'll play Purple Rain - it's genius.

Has anyone sunk lower?

Storage Wars
Extreme Couponning

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Jun-13 21:33:42

Ooh and that thing with Honey Boo Boo in. confused

Hassled Sun 16-Jun-13 21:37:21

I couldn't cope with Honey Boo Boo. Excruciating - my embarrassment threshold is too low.
Storage Wars sounds like a riot - will track it down.

NettoSuperstar Sun 16-Jun-13 21:43:43

Honey Boo Boo
Teen Mom/16 and pregnant
Big Brother
Any other reality shite
Crap films on the True movie channels
Matthew Wright.
Home and Away and Neighbours.
Not sure I watch anything that isn't shite really grin

DD makes me watch 16 Kids and Counting (I think they may have had more kids now) which is INSANE. They're all really sweet and nice (apart from the slightly creepy father), but bloody hell, there are a lot of them.

I quite enjoyed the series of the Duggars and their mahoosive family.

Storage Wars is brilliant.

Ooh I quite like Cash Cab and Perfection for a crap quiz show.

DD will not entertain Honey Boo Boo, she thinks it's horrid, also she does not approve of Geordie Shore which I watch.
She's gone off TOWIE.
She does put up with my cooking shows though, my current favourite is Simon Hopkinson's latest.

She likes Supernatural, Grimm, silly horror films and Russel Howard.

Have jusy set up the sky planne for Extreme Couponning - thanks for the tip!

Another vote for Storage Wars DH watches it and I've got sucked into watching it and it's strangely addictive.

As for pants quiz shows I love Tipping Point (comes from my addiction to 2p machines at the seaside!) Would love to go on it!

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Jun-13 22:31:36

You will love EC weeble. I watch like this -shock

cocolepew Sun 16-Jun-13 22:35:38

Catfish, tracking down internet romances, car crash telly at its best.

NettoSuperstar Sun 16-Jun-13 22:41:12

YY to Catfish.
Great show, and also the guy may be a wee bit hotgrin

GibberTheMonkey Sun 16-Jun-13 22:42:33

cocolepew Sun 16-Jun-13 22:43:08

cocolepew Sun 16-Jun-13 22:44:14

What is Duck Dynasty? I saw an advert but it didn't tell me much hmm

Blessyou Sun 16-Jun-13 22:44:27

Inbetweeners, my guilty secret.

yegodsandlittlefishes Sun 16-Jun-13 22:47:56

Lonesome Dove, with sub titles that are running about 10 minutes late.

GibberTheMonkey Sun 16-Jun-13 22:49:37

I have no idea what to say
I just asked dh and he said its indescribable

Large extended family, dad started a business selling duck calls. Youngest son turned it multimillions. Bunch of oddballs doing stupid stuff, all with huge beards.

<makes mental note to look for Catfish>

OP agree with you on the Homes Under The Hammer music thing. Another addictive programma! Sometimes I find myself disappointed at the end results though

weebleknievel Sun 16-Jun-13 22:58:15

Damn my sausage fingers!

weebleknievel Sun 16-Jun-13 23:00:19

sparklingbrook EC is recording at 8:30am so I shall watch whilst giving DS his mid-morning feed. It'd better be good I have high expectations now!

SexAndDrugsAndSausageRolls Sun 16-Jun-13 23:01:15

Storage wars here too...but the original Californian version. Can't be doing with that Texan lot at all.

My mum keeps trying to get me to watch Extreme Couponing but I am resisting. I have enough crap telly on my life as it is.
