    What're yours?

    I gotta say that Beauty & the Geek is consistently a guilty pleasure for me. It's probably the only "reality" show that I can stand, even with how formulaic it can be. And the girls are HAWT!

    Another was Show Me the Money with Shatner, but I didn't watch for long and it didn't last for long. I mostly watched it to see the Shat's antics (his dancing left me in stitches), but again HAWT girls didn't hurt.

    I love The Soup. I get a bit of each of the shows that are the bottom of the barrel as far as quality TV goes and get it made fun of..

    I've got a few actually

    1)Real World: Denver Colorado and Real World Challenge: The Duel

    2)Beauty and the Geek; saw the first episode of the new season yesterday. It's pretty cool. Being an underdog myself I root for the geeks. Although it's too bad none of the present geeks are TF fans :D 

    3)Latin Lovers; used to watch/record this show fairly regularly. Untill the channel it aired on moved and was added to the digital cable package. Which extra $$$ would have to be paid to get it

    4)Apprentice; YOU'RE FIRED says it all, plus some of those people are motivational for me

    5)Jem and the Holograms and Kidd Video; being a fan of 80's style music. These 2 shows are enjoyable for me :)

    The geek that got eliminated...Sanjay, is a friend of mine. He actually posted once on this board a long time ago. He made an argument about how a 6 inch Subway sub isn't really 6 inches and you get gipped on it when you get one. That alone would explain why he got the spot on that show.

    I too watch B & the G and thought it was pretty good. Some of the girls are hot, but that Swimsuit model (with the rocking body) is annoying as hell...

    Latin Lovers is the best...Nothing wrong with Latino soft-core porn...Women=hawt.
    Especially that younger girl trying to get on the show...

    The first apprentice was the best, but I will probably watch the new one coming out.

    I also like the amazing race, survivor and Disney’s Recess.

    I've been going througth Saved by the Bell frame by frame and i've still not found the mind control messages that forced my to keep watching it, I think that they must be imebedded in the colour signals or somesort of high frequency audio.

    I don't watch much TV. I watch House, Heroes, My Name is Earl, The Office, The Daily Show and Corner Gas. That's it.

    And all those shows are excellent.

    I don't have a TV, but I do have some 'Allo 'Allo DVD box sets.
    Does that count?

    Honestly I haven't watched that show in at least a year. All I remember about that show is thar Raphael cheated on his gf/fiance with someone else from the same studio.

    But honestly I wasn't aware that show/soap aired in other parts of Canada. I only saw it because TLN (The Latino Network) was originally part of the Shaw full cable package. Most of the time I couldn't understand it as 90% of the time it's in Spanish. But the rare time I'd see the english dub.

    And yes the women definitely weren't hard on the eyes ;)  And finally it made sense. At least those guys LOOKED like they could get those girls :p 

    And EVERYONE in that show got some play, young old it didn't matter. And was there ANYONE on the show that WASN'T creepin' around on their significant other? :lol

    I guess Bones and Standoff? I don't really run into a lot of talk about them so I'm assuming they can qualify as guilty pleasures. But hey, one has Angel and hot intelligent women, and the other has Peter from Office Space and Zoe from Firefly. If that is wrong then I guess I will never be right.

    3-4 years ago a buddy told me about it. It is still on TLN, but only works with the digital cable. It's on thursday through Saturday, but only in english on sat. :lol 

    And as for story, I could tell you what is going on...not really paying attention to that.

    :lol  I did.


    For me it's Still Standing reruns on Lifetime. I just try to ignore all the commercials and then change the channel as fast as I can when it ends so I can not catch Reba.*shivers*
