Blogtober Day 3 – What I like To Watch

We are into the third day and today is Blogtober day 3 – what I like to watch.  This is where I give you a little glimpse into what I like to watch on the tv. I tend to watch tv in the evenings once dinner is sorted and I can relax.

I do love my soaps and watch them everyday.  My husband is not so keen but will put up with me watching them.  The soaps I love to watch are

  • Emmerdale
  • Eastenders
  • Coronation Street

Entertainment Shows

I love easy watching entertainment shows such as

  • The Great British Bake Off
  • Masterchef
  • Who Wants To Be A Millionnaire

I have always loved baking, and love watching GBBO, I know I could not cope with the pressure of working under that stress.  But the creations they produce are amazing.

We both love Masterchef the professionals, but I do also like Celebrity Masterchef, although I do not think I could work in a professional kitchen.

Who Wants To Be A Millionnaire makes me realise I am not as stupid as I think I am. I surprise myself a lot of the time at what I do know.

Everything Else

We both have very different likes when it comes to what we like to watch.  We both love films and my husband has even educated me on Marvel films and I do enjoy them now.  We do have some common ground with films and seem to find ones that we will both enjoy to watch.  My husband also loves documentaries, which is something I would never have watched before.  I agree some are boring, but I do find some enjoyable.  I suppose it is all down to keeping an open mind about learning.

What do you like to watch on tv?

      We are the same with Netflix, it is a nightmare when there are whole seasons or multiple seasons you just keep going

    I love watching TV too, especially on weekends where I try to catch up with my recorded shows. Right now I have 911, The Resident, Seal Team, NCIS , Van Helsing, and the Suites to watch this weekend, and I’m so excited!

    We only watch Netflix and Prime now. It’s good not to have adverts and watch a whole series in one go.

    My husband and I (sounds so royal) were only talking this morning about how we used to watch things together on television. Now, he sits upstairs watching Sky Sports while I watch any drama that’s going, including on Netflix. I used to be a soap addict but I don’t really watch them now, unless you count Casualty and Holby City, I love those. I’m currently loving watchign The Capture, but so excited for His Dark Materials to Start.

    I love the soaps too. I watch them all and GBBO and I’ve even been watching a bit of Celebrity Masterchef.
    I amaze the kids while watching Who Wants To Be A Millionnaire. I am sure they think I’m a bit dumb but I manage to get more of the questions right than them. hehehe

    Share loads of your to be honest and think way too many people are way too snotty about those of us who watch and enjoy soaps. Love Masterchef and Bakeoff too. Love documentaries, true crime and politics and the odd crime drama. Without all of them at the minute though apart from Sky News Live #Blogtober19 – nice to know if we ever get to meet we can watch telly together happily enough!

    Wow, that Eastenders show has been around forever, hasn’t it? I’ve seen the Bake-Off show. But not familiar with the others. We don’t have cable or other regular TV, just use streaming services for movies and original shows. There’s so much changing content that I’d have a hard time saying that I like one particular show over another.

    When we lived in the UK before, I used to watch Coronation Street and East Enders. I’m sure I cannot catch up on the story now. My sisters and I also waited for Top of the Pops every Friday. It was the highlight of our week.

    And in the afternoon, after school, I loooooove to watch Conundrum. Do you still have that?

      I used to love Top of The Pops that finished a few years ago now. I can not remember Conundrum

    To be honest, its rarely I spend regular time on tv — but if I do, I have a series of Netflix Originals and movies to seat on. It is also most of the time a resting time for me and my partner.

      I have the tv on in the evenings, I am still pottering around and still often working, so it can be a distraction I need to take a break

    Is Millionaire still on tv in the U.K.? I have no idea if it is still on here in the US but if it is, I would definitely watch that show. I loved the trivia end lifelines and such. Darcee & I are finishing up our marvel universe on Netflix this October too with the Punisher since we finished watching the other series a few months ago. Do you like those?
