Big thanks to all of you that recommended One Tree Hill. Am only watching the first season and am only halfway through (although all the trailers for the current season are spoiling it for me slightly...) but am really enjoying it.

I love a bit of teen angst once dd has gone to bed. Although the ironing still isn't getting done...

Wear crumpled clothes forever and just enjoy!!!!

Pinkjenny Wed 06-Aug-08 13:31:01

And I complain I have no 'me time'.

Ha!

LostGirl Wed 06-Aug-08 13:36:34

I use my 'me time' to watch OTH, GG, etc etc, how sad is that!

I have never watched this and I WILL NOT BE SUCKED IN

however I get what you say about teen angst

I watched all four series of the OC last year when I was chronically ill and very good they were too

also I tape Smallville to watch whilst ironing

so there's an idea

it's not like the plots take a whole lot of concentration - I haven't burnt anything yet

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 14:03:32

Go on Cappuccino... you'll love it, I promise you...

Cappuccino Thu 07-Aug-08 14:04:20

no no no no no

if dh sees anything else appear in the BT Vision recorded menu he may well blow

there are about 3 series of Smallville and a series of Dr Who in there already

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 14:06:42

Well my dh has 11, yes count em, 11 episodes of The Bill to watch on Sky +. So he can't complain about my teenage drama habit, now can he!!

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:13:02

Ooo, what's smallville like? There is a void in my viewing schedule now Gossip Girl has finished.

Cappuccino Thu 07-Aug-08 14:14:58

it's vapid and pretty

Cappuccino Thu 07-Aug-08 14:15:34

that's not a criticism grin

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:21:17

vapid and pretty is about all my brain can handle at 4am grin

Cappuccino Thu 07-Aug-08 14:26:30

there you go then

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 14:26:41

Someone recommended Brothers and Sisters to me as well - although that's more grown up angst than teen angst.

FGS, woman, you're 31!!!!!!!

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:32:48

I'm 30, we really are old enough to know better aren't we. Will try and cut back (as soon as I've finished watching High School Musical with dd1 blush)

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 14:34:01

Oooh, I cannot wait for dd to start watching all that stuff!

Yay! Seriously, I cannot wait. But she's only 14mo so a while to go yet.

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:36:02

I think I will have to take dd1 to ciema to see HSM3 when it comes out, as a special treat for her of course!

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:37:17

Oh dear, will I still be using her as an excuse in eight years time to cover up the fact that I will still be watching teen television? Do they do anonymous help groups for people like us?

Pinkjenny Thu 07-Aug-08 14:38:06

Oh yes, I would think so. It's so important for mums and daughters to do things together, IMHO. wink

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 14:40:47

My thoughts exactly. It's important to know what they are watching, lets jsut call it research smile

annaje Thu 07-Aug-08 18:20:24

Mums and daughters would probably like Gilmore Girls - currently running on E4 in the mornings - I've only just found it - but it is very good and mighty funny - and for all those enjoying OTH - it does have "Lucas" in it - it also has the guy who plays Peter Petrelli in Heroes and the gorgeous Jared from Supernatural - covers all bases IMO

LostGirl Thu 07-Aug-08 19:17:49

<rushes off to find remote in order to sky plus>

Pinkjenny Fri 08-Aug-08 09:20:01

Ooooh, will make a mental note once I get through with OTH.

Thanks annaje. grin
