I ended up watching a lot of day time TV and though I never descended to the lows of Jeremy Kyle I did end up watching Psychic Detectives, which prompted me to drag myself into work the next Monday – because I thought I am really losing the plot if I am watching this stuff, but I was still unwell and didn’t last the day in work.
I gained a new appreciation for Murder She Wrote – my Granny used to love that program. I used to tease her and say that she really fantasised about being Jessica Fletcher. I can’t believe the amount of really famous actors that appear in cameo roles in the series. In the Paint Me a Murder episode alone, you had both Stewart Granger and Cesar Romero.
I shamefully admit I got addicted to both Project Runway (US) and Project Catwalk (UK version). I can’t believe they cancelled the UK version, its such a shame – I just think it was a great opportunity for undiscovered Designers to get some exposure.
Watching Murder She Wrote again makes me think that the 80’s was really the Golden Age of TV – or is it just my own perception? Anyways, as much as I enjoyed revisiting Murder She Wrote I really hope that this is the end of my little sojourn with daytime TV. A lot of people may find this hard to believe but I really do want to be better and go back to work. Fingers crossed….
