Top Ten TV Series to Combat Boredom

My blog has caused quite a buzz...I can't keep up with all these comments being posted on my posts! Must be my wit, charm and winning personality (hehehe!!)

Top 10 TV series I have spent hours and hours watching lately to combat the mind-numbing Accra Boredom:

  1. Prison Break Season 1 - 4 (worrying about the Schofields and Burrells of this world really helps combat the boredom....it is also fun to count the number of times Lincoln Burrell's accent lapses into unintentional Australian English under duress)
  2. Lost Season 1 - 4(where the @#$#@ are they?)
  3. Desperate Housewives (can’t stopping watching these suburban types!)
  4. The Wire season 1-3 (aside from Season 2, the rest had me glued)
  5. Everybody Hates Chris (This show had me laughing out loud for hours!)
  6. Rome Season 1 and 2 (period dramas with debauchery are always fun)
  7. Grey’s Anatomy (Black woman written, directed and produced...fantastic show!)
  8. Life on Mars, Entire Series (the original UK version) (fascinating and nostaligic…granted I don’t remember much of the 70s …especially not Britain in the 70s but still a lot of fun)
  9. Robin Hood Season 1 (so, so)
  10. Heroes Season 1-2 (actually did not enjoy this one..unlike millions of comic books fans out there)
Do any of my regular blog followers have their own list? 5 will do if you want....2? Any?

you might want to try subscribing to GBS (http://www.gtv.tv). They're currently showing BONES (detective series from the US), and about to show CITY Homicide, an allegedly top-notch detective Australian series that started in 2007, and is in it second season. You like Nollywood?

Thanks! You certainly are in the know. The problem with cable packages for me is that they are bound to include stations I wouldn't want. I really should check out GBS though...just saw their line-up and on MGM they are showing "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three". It is really rare to find any station anywhere showing a 70s classic like that. Watched an episode of Bones on Dutch tv some months ago..was interesting. Have never heard of City Homicide but will take your word for it!
Nollywood? I was into it a few years back but at some point the predictability started to get to me. I left Ghana for a year and when I came back I could not keep up with the new crop of actors...around the time Emeka Ike et al were banned..

check IMDB.com for City Homicide. You'll find it there!
