Most of the CBeebies programmes drive me nuts, but there are a couple that I actually enjoy watching, and that's one of them! Especially the episode where Mr Pontipine's moustache blew away, and he had to chase around trying to get it back. It got stuck to the Pinky Ponk. :( Then, when he finally got it back, Mrs Pontipine kissed him, and it got stuck to her nose! Poor Mr Pontipine. Can you imagine the horror? :shock:

Hehe, I was going to mention In The Night Garden myself before seeing your post DG. It's not like I make a point of watching it you understand, but if the kids have it on I quite enjoy it. Especially the theme tune. :D

I watch Sesame Street on occasion. And I don't even have the excuse of having kids around!

I've been thinking about this recently and, to be honest, I don't actually have that much "guilty pleasure" TV. Occassionaly, if someone's got "Come Dine with Me" on, I'll sit and watch it, but I'd never been a concicious choice to.

I have to admit that I am a slight Come Dine With Me obsessive, Dave Lamb, the narrator, can be really sarcasic and he makes the whole show

Dave Lamb really p!sses me off at times: granted he can be mildly funny every now and again, but most of the time he just wants to make me shout "shut the f*ck up, you t!t!"... come to think of it, I actually do do that many times!

On the other hand, my Mum thinks he's really funny, so I guess it's just my opinion! :P

Goodnight Sweetheart. Even went as far as box set land.
Watched it in the mid 90's, through the cast change and writers hiatus then forgot all about it.
Walked in to a rerun after some dreary double shift and was mesmerised by all the sh#t I could not remember.
Had to see the first and last episode again,so over 1800 minutes of time travel began.Or ended.
Still none the wiser,just older,mysteriously....
Good performances from Nicholas Lyndhurst and Victor Mcguire.

Just got back in to Monarch Of The Glen, for quite a while in high school me and my mate Dawn were compulsive viewers, I have to admit that on my part the draw came entirely from Alastiar McKenzie, but after re-watching it, for a Sunday night drama it is surpisingly good, unfortunatley I used to watch it with mum so in the first couple of episodes I was a bit teary

I've got to admit, I like watching the Carry On films sometimes. Even though most of the male actors just make me go 'urgh!' Funny stuff.

was bored and trawling old threads

now biggest guilty pleasure has to be The Wright Stuff, I actually Sky+ so I don't miss it when I'm at work, it makes me laugh and is vaguely intelligent, I need something to take my mind off work
