Sunday Social (5)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social!

  • What is your favorite TV show of the past?
    Probably 'The West Wing'. The writing is so amazing and the characters are so compelling. Aaron Sorkin is a TV genius. But there are SO many others as well - Stargate SG-1; Deep Space Nine; Six Feet Under; Lost; Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Angel; Sex and the City; Friends; John Doe; Jake 2.0; Chuck - it depends on my mood, do I want Sci-fi, do I want drama, do I want comedy? Note that my favourite TV shows are from the US, UK TV doesn't really come close.
  • What is your current favorite TV show?
    Burn Notice (I don't even have to think) - "My Name is Michael Westen, I used to be a spy..." - I love the writing, it is so distinctive. Tod Goldberg writes novels based on the show and Michael's voice comes through so clearly.
  • Which reality show would you NEVER do?
    I'm afraid I can't bear reality TV so the answer has to be any of them. All the ones that I've bumped into are stupid people doing stupid things. If I want to see that I can go and sit in the High Street on an afternoon and watch people go by.
  • Which reality show would you LOVE to do?
    See above.
  • What is the TV personality/character that you feel is most like you?
    I'm not sure there is one! I think I'm going with Jed Bartlett from 'The West Wing' - he has MS the same as me; he also likes to impart trivia to those around him which is something else I've found I do.
  • Which TV character would you want to date?
    I can't actually think of one. All the guys are easy on the eye (they're actors, of course they are) but when it comes down to the character they all seem to have a flaw that says 'no, not this guy'. Let's face it - I often wonder why the characters are dating each other!!!
