Wow I am a TV Junkie so its hard to pick a favorite. I even created a website to track them (I am a web developer as well as a quilter). http://trackmyshows.com

Tonight I watched The 100, Revolution, NCIS, and NCIS LA all while binding a quilt (tv was good so I was going slow)

A very happy birthday to you on this the 1st of may. you have certainly made me smile with this blog. Re tv, I have throughly enjoyed Call the Midwife, not sure if you get in overseas but it has been a great hit here in the UK. Set in the 1950`s very nostalgic.

Tabitha Keener said...

Happy Birthday! I'm new to quilting and I've been so immersed in learning that my only favorite show right now is Spongebob! It helps me sleep if you can believe it. I do love the series Game of Thrones but I haven't watched this season, also Supernatural. Thanks for the giveaway, I haven't tried this thread yet but I would love to!

My favorite is this show I don't remember the name of for some strange reason! It's where these people go in to cluttered houses, sell all the stuff and re do everything with the money they get from the sale. :) Thanks for the giveaway. I laughed at you non-maypole comment! ;)

I love to watch The Andy Griffith show every day after the noon news. I love it because it never gets old and there is always a lesson to learn.

Joyce Carter said...

Happy Birthday, Kathy!!
Your post was very funny with all the T.V. references. I don't watch a lot of things on the television, but of all the things that I do watch, I would pick Devious Maids.

Jess said...

I don't have TV. (I know, I know, and I'm 30-ish too, and no, I don't have a smart phone, I have a pre-flip-phone phone). But when I watch old TV series it's usually Psych, Scrubs or M*A*S*H.

PK Sews said...

Happy birthday! And what a delightful post! You are a blogging star! I love to watch tv while I sew, so I have lots of favorites, but right now I'm finding Sandal most interesting.

Happy birthday. My favorite TV show is New Tricks - a BBC series. It was on our local PBS station for only one season, but I fell in love & have purchased 9 seasons from Amazon.com. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cute post and Happy Birthday! Funny your post comes through, and DH and I were talking about shutting off the cable. But until then.
I like Grimm because it is in Portland, Oregon where I grew up and my family is from.

I don't watch much TV but I do enjoy Dancing With the Stars. It's amazing how they can turn some inept individuals into real dancers.

Afquilt said...

Happy birthday!

I don't have a TV so I don't have a favorite show... that would cut into quilting time!

ShirleyC said...

Happy Happy Birthday!

It's hard to pick a favorite show. Two of my favorites come on Hallmark. One is "Cedar Cove" and the other one is "When Calls the Heart".
We also love Survivor and The Amazing Race.

Barbara O. said...

I don't watch much TV, only when I'm ironing. Then it's NCIS. Thanks for the chance!

GranChris said...

Happy Birthaday, this was my Dad's birthday too. I like Criminal Minds and CSI. Oh yes Bones as well. Who knows why. Cheap entertainment. Forgot NCIS. Mostly I watch reruns but that's OK with me.

Mokki said...

I don't watch the tele much, only to keep up with the news. I enjoyed watching the great British sewing bee!

Karen H said...

Happy birthday to you! My favourite TV show is Coronation Street and Survivor is a close second! Thanks for the chance to win some Aurifil threads!

Suellen Dehnke said...

Happy Birthday. We're totally hooked on Downton Abbey. The period, the costumes, the set design. It's like being transported to another era.

Vicki H said...

I have several tv shows I really enjoy. My favorite is Big Bang Theory.

Arianna M. said...

I don't really watch that much TV since we don't have cable. I do have all 6 seasons of Dr. Quinn on dvd, though.

Diann said...

I'm not much of a TV watcher, and don't have a favorite. I sometimes like special things on TV like the Olympics.

Tammy said...

I watch very few tv shows. 3 to be exact. True Blood and Game of Thrones on HBO and Vikings on the History channel by favorite is currently Vikings. It changes between the 3 shows weekly. It depends on which one is having the most adventure and excitement. As I live vicariously through the actors on tv.

Tammy said...

I forgot to say I remember being a child and my school always had a may day festival and we danced the may pole. What fun looking back. None of my children's schools have ever done the may pole dance that I know of.

Kathy said...

Happy Birthday to you! And I'm ashamed to say I have a LOT of favorite TV shows. I'm taking a little shame away though by watching them while on the treadmill lately. My all time favorite is Big Bang Theory, but my newest favorite is Growing Up Fisher because it's based on a true story.

Jeannie D said...

Lol...You are very clever and funny! Happy Birthday, too! My favorite show right now is Call the Midwife on PBS, but The Blacklist, Mr. Selfridge and Doc Martin keep me glued to the couch as well!

Kathy H said...

Happy birthday. My favorite shows are NCIS and Chicago Fire. It is always nice to watch some shows with heroes.

Karen said...

Happy Birthday, Kathy!. I'm a HGTV junkie and my current favorite is Property Brothers.

OhioLori said...

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS!!!
Hmmm...favorite TV show...Person of Interest is probably one anyhow...we like it...is different & they save people. Just started watching Chicago PD too.

Mara said...

Happy Birthday, I am a follower and right now I am hooked on Person of Interest, it just came out here in Greece, love the characters they have, oh and your Birthday in Greece is celebrated and everyone has the day off!

Patti said...

Happy Birthday. Sorry I'm late. My favorite programs are British believe it or not. I love Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge and one you probably don't get called Vera. It's about a woman police officer and she is played by Brenda Blethyn who is a wonderful actress. I also like NCIS LA and a whole host of other programs. Hope your birthday was as wonderful as you. Love P xxx

Renee said...

Well, I don't have a TV, but we watch shows on amazon prime--our favorites have been How I Met Your Mother (funny, short, relatable characters) and Sherlock (awesome characters, good stories, clever, extremely well made production!), Scrubs (funny and good character development), and Firefly (fun premise and great production, good mix of characters).

Cheryl @ Sew Can Do said...

Miss Fisher Mysteries. Fashion, glamour & intrigue with a sassy, smart woman detective.

andri. said...

Happy Birthday! My favourite is the always entertaining How I met your mother:)

Jo said...

Happy Birthday Kathy! We don't do TV as such, just Netflix, but one of my all time favourite shows is Dr Who. When I was at school we used to dance around the Maypole in our town square, I was always quite amazed that we never tied it up in knots and I remember it as good fun!

Karen Caves said...

Vikings.....so primal....some nice eye candy, and gorgeous setting!! (It's taped in Ireland). A must see!! Spetzie at att dot net

Cindy Dahlgren said...

My favorite show is no longer on,sobbing and weeping, it was Eureka and on the Sci Fi network. I so miss that show.

Connie said...

Happy belated birthday Kathy. I really don't watch a lot of TV but Black List is my favorite!
