Day 16 | favourite TV programme

I find it really difficult to choose a favourite anything... favourite song, favourite film, favourite food. TV programmes are no different. Like anything else, it depends on my mood on that day. 

But, the topic for today's blog post made me realise that I've definitely got different preferences depending on who I'm sharing the sofa with.

TV with my husband - I don't watch a great deal of TV, but most of what I do watch is done in tandem. My other half will not be fobbed off with programmes he deems I should watch "in my own time" (ha!), so we try to find a middle ground which usually results in some sort of american sit com or drama, think New Girl, Homeland, Dexter etc, or a movie.

TV with the kids - my programme of choice if the beanies are in tow, is definitely Phineas and Ferb. We went through a real phase of this last year and, even though they are a bit less into it these days, I still find the whole thing pretty amusing.

TV on my own... (as if) - on the *very* rare occasions that I'm master of my own viewing destiny, its straight to the mindless, shallow, vacuous TV gold, along the lines of America's Next Top Model (and its British counterpart), X Factor, Strictly etc etc. My other guilty TV pleasure is food channels. Nothing like a bit of food porn to fill a rare moment of solitary viewing.
