Want to get something to watch on the off-chance that dd goes to sleep for more than 10 mins at a time during an upcoming holiday - having to travel v light so can't take my usual pile of books - thought I could stock up my Ipod - any recommendations?

I like all the usual US stuff like Greys, Gossip Girl, ER etc but have seen most of what is on Itunes. Is Nip/Tuck any good?

i like
the daily show political satire - 4OD
never mind the buzzcocks is back! yay
have you tried brothers and sisters?
have you tried dirty sexy money?
ONE TREE HILL - is a must if you are a gossip girl fan

Caz10 Fri 02-Oct-09 21:09:50

Oooh One Tree Hill - that looks like good holiday viewing - I shall say this very quietly but I do love GG, The OC, dawsons creek blush etc

Loved Brothers and Sisters (is it coming back?) and Dirty Sexy Money (don't think it is)

Is the Daily Show the one from More4?

Caz10 Fri 02-Oct-09 21:11:04

PS is it worth starting with series 1 of One Tree Hill?

Tortington Fri 02-Oct-09 21:12:11

i am your viewing twin grin its funny how we have to say these trashy soaps in whispers !

i know that the daily show is on 4OD on the channel four site

Tortington Fri 02-Oct-09 21:13:10

yes must start with series one - if you cant download it - buy it its a must - its like the oc only..... (and i don't say this lightly) better ( i loved seth)

Caz10 Fri 02-Oct-09 21:16:15

BETTER than the OC?!?! I didn't think it was possible to top Pacey until Seth came along...although now that I think back to Pacey...hmmmmmm grin

Season 1 One Tre Hill zooming down the wires onto my laptop as I type I am very excited!

Other loves have been West Wing, ER, Ugly Betty - and at the time I loved Ally McBeal but having seen some repeats it's really dated now.

OH and Desparate Housewives of course!

yes brothers ans sisters defo coming back - dh has downloaded the first i the new series for me - don't know where from

i asumed DSM was coming back i havent heard otherwise

if you are a downloading genius - or know one - or if not look out for this series called cougar town its got courney cox in and its laugh out loud funny

talk of laugh out loud funny = piss your pants funny = seriously effing funny

there is a series called 'psych' about a detective who pretends he is psychic but is just really detailed perceptive. - i think that is shown on bbc2 but am not sure - worth a google

also weeds is brilliantly clever, witty and funny

Caz10 Fri 02-Oct-09 21:20:37

I am SO not a downloading genius!! Itunes is a big step for me! Have heard of weeds but not the others, will google, exciting!!

I saw something else with Courtney Cox in it and it was PANTS - can't remember the name now though...

greek - american college sorority - great trash - love it

medium
mentalist - like psyche - a man who figures out crimes in conjunction with the police becusae he can see fine detail - only this is a police drama

ncis

flashpoint - about police sniper shooters - police drama

flashforward - brand new effing brilliant drama about how the whole human population blackout for exactly one minute and dreams of april 10th 2011

I am getting the True Blood downloads at the moment. (starts Channel 4 Wednesday). Really enjoying it.

TheFoosa Sat 03-Oct-09 08:28:02

ok, I know nothing about downloading

is it legal to download tv stuff? I want to watch Mad Men and True Blood

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 03-Oct-09 08:42:36

How on earth do you watch stuff on such a teeny tiny screen? I would have struggled even before my eyes went wrong.

Tambajam Sat 03-Oct-09 11:08:15

If you buy stuff from itunes (where it isn't cheap) it is very definitely legal. I have to admit the screen is small but I have got used to it. I watch it in bed.

Caz10 Sat 03-Oct-09 20:45:17

I have only really used it when I was bf-ing dd for hours on end when she was really tiny! Got through hours of ER then! grin

Screen v small but you do get used to it.

Itunes totally legal also some progs are on their channel's website for download.

I downloaded a film

I don't know why I did this but I thought it might be fun to see if it worked lol

I chose Godfather II and it was fine (maybe because I had seen it before). Then I watched X men on there.

It's surprisingly better than you think but then again, I have really poor eyesight anyway so a small screen close to my eyes probably looks better than a middle sized screen the other side of the room

if they have House on there, that has been really good this season
