    90 day fiance. My missus watches it and I got hooked in. Total trash but great fun.

    Is that like some kind of show with an arranged marriage aspect, like after 90 days you marry or don't marry this stranger?

    I like Kitchen Nightmares USA when you get one of those REALLY dysfunctional families that have no right to be working together. I like it even more when they argue blind that their way is fine, whilst heating up month old frozen steak in the microwave.

    None now really. Definitely back in the day Eurotrash. Though it was also hilarious.

    I watch the emergency services documentaries on Channel 4, like '24 hours in A&E' or '999: what's your emergency?'

    They are equally infuriating and heart lifting; the latter because you get to see people's lives being saved/mended/cured. But infuriating because there are some real arseholes out there wasting the emergency service's time.

    I got hooked on Hunted last year, and am in again this season. Amazing how much tension you can artificially milk out with some clever editing.

    On the other hand, The Heist on Sky is utter shite, even though it's made by the same people - go figure.

    My missus loves these, so i often catch some of them. As you say, they show the good & bad of folk.

    Tattoo fixers goes top of the list for me, it's utter tripe but I find it strangely compelling.

    I made it onto 24 hours in a&e 3 years back following a motorbike crash. It is really surreal being followed by a variety of camera crews while you are being x rayed etc.

    Credit though, they never once tried to make drama or up the tension. No "can you grimace more" and the interview part was just letting me talk.

    Mrs. EMarkM (who has many tattoos herself) had us watching that the other night.

    And First Dates.

    And Naked Attraction.

    We do watch The Chase and vintage Bullseye every night! :)

    If only Jim had known that thirty years later it'd be the total opposite for First Dates and Naked Attraction...

    The narrator is the reason I can't watch Gogglebox. When Craig Cash says 'now it's time to visit, Wendy and Lisa', he does it in a voice like he's talking to a 2 year old whilst recovering from a bad head injury. Makes me feel ill.
    :)

    Quite a few people say that I sound like him. When I phone to book golf at one of the local courses the lady that answers the phone calls me “Baby Dave” and writes it down on the tee times sheet

    Then when I get to the course I have to go to pay and say it’s booked under “Baby Dave” in front of my friends and all the old farts in the clubhouse

    Never gets old that one!

    There was one simply called ‘Hospital’ on BBC (?) last night. The hospital in Liverpool had a chap called Frank who was using them as a hostel. But being a real arse when he was steaming.

    I'll usually watch Border Security when it's on. If you just read the description it sounds like it could easily be anti-forrin sensationalism, but the actual show is pretty dry. It's just amazing the shit that people try to smuggle into the country.

    "So, you said on your form that you didn't have any food"

    "Yes"

    "Yet here is a giant bag of food"

    "...can I change my answer to 'yes I have food'?"

    In which case, we possibly saw you! Who knew i would have seen an EGer on telly without knowing it.

    I have heard boo on popmaster, but he told us all about that in advance! 😃

    I've discovered forged in fire and it is amazing.

    Four bladesmiths compete in a weapons forging competition to impress a panel of jurists and win the prize money.

    I can't stop watching.

    I used to like the thing where they got the weapons from different times in history and hacked up realistic flesh dummies to see which one was the bestest for killing.

    This is basically what this is but they make them under the gruelling pressure of competitive TV!

    I am currently watching Sapphire and Steel on Forces TV.

    I don't feel guilty about it, and I'm not sure whether it's a pleasure or not.

    I think it needs a reboot.

    I really like The Gilmore girls. It looks like the best place in the world to set up a home and family. I’d go to the diner every morning.....I’m going to stop now.

    I just watched an episode where a guy said "I'm going to make a JAPANESE WAKIZASHI that can CUT THROUGH CATTLE BONE".

    It's like, dude, just make a butchers cleaver. You don't need a samurai sword for cooking.

    I'm still on the first episode. They have to create katana's and one of the tests is to see if it can split a bullet.

    They've actually rigged it up to fire a pistol at their blades.

    Best. Show. Ever.
