Janis wants to know :
What kind of TV viewer are you? Do you like sitcoms or do you prefer drama. Are soap operas your cup of tea or murder mysteries. Game, variety and reality shows are big this year too.
Before I started blogging I watched TV a lot ! I had stopped working, had nothing to do and was bored to death.
Today I only watch TV in the evening together with Mr. G when we meet so that we still recognize each other. We first watch the news and then sometimes a Quizz or other games, but mostly we both like crime stories, or rather murder mysteries and if they are full of humour it's even better.
I don't like the CSI series at all. Too much blood. I don't like to sea the stomac content of a murdered person while I am eating my spaghettis, or the intestins of a serial killer. I don't know why they show all these body parts in such details, I am more interested in the crime story then in a bloody hole created by a gun under a microscope.
We both like murder mysteries, but then real mysteries, presented with some psychology and humour, I don't need blood for a thriller ! In Agatha Christie movies you hardly see the body and Columbo with his invisible wife is always very suspenseful too.
I like the "Midsummer" crimes of Inspector Barnaby, were in average you have around 4 murders without blood. It's always very decent. The corpses are well dressed or half burried. The murderer is usually the one you expect the less, for example the brother of the sister in law of a cousin whose uncle, aunt and the chauffeur were all stabbed because 20 years ago they had killed his dog.
Sometimes I also watch "Royal Place" where I see the latest news of all Royal families just to inform myself if they have a new love affair or if a new marriage is coming up etc. This is my romantic side.
Cat Arthur likes to watch swimming and not dead fishes.
