(WARNING: Loooong tag ahead)

Perx tagged me like ages ago! I finally got down to it just err today.. here goes.. I am supposed to list 10 shows that made TV worth watching. Unfortunately I am not a big TV guy these days.. I am a chronic channel swapper and cling on to programmes for an episode and forget about it totally.. So I have modified the rule to fit in 5 channels that made TV worth watching.

1> Cartoon Network and POGO
Its these channels that I turn to when I am really upset or when in bad mood. Takeshi’s Castle on POGO is one of my favorites

2> Discovery Channel
Nothing interesting to watch? Switch to this one.. There is always something good around

3> ESPN/STAR
They are best sports channel around.. Their cricket coverage is simply fantabulous unlike some others

4> Asianet JukeboxExamples of comic book titles published by Bongo Comics.
Only mallus must have heard of this. It is a city centric channel.. One can call up a telephone number and select the next song to be played from an on-screen menu.. (I use this to listen to some songs when I go home)

5> Star World
They go the best sit-coms (and The Simpsons).. I hope they restart crystal maze.. so used to love it!

  1. I’ve already done the second Tag a few days back… But, if you don’t mind me experimenting a bit, I’d like to take the first tag you’ve got here and add another of mine to it… πŸ˜€
    BTW, thanks for that Blog Talk article! It was really cool..!!! πŸ˜€

  2. I will never watch all the sex related programs I’ve watched on Discovery Channel. The best part about them is the hindi dubbing. There was this really interesting one where they showed how it’s all based on chemical reactions, smell and stuff. And then there was my fave Junkyard Wars. πŸ˜€

    We have a channel similar to Asianet Jukebox in here. It’s called iTV. Unfortunately it’s been invaded by Punjabi songs over the years. But I was really surprised to find that it had the video of Coldplay’s Fix You amongst those neverending Punjabi ones.

    P.S. – Which stuffed animal did you sleep with? πŸ˜›

  3. Another Tashan victim. πŸ˜† God knows how many of us are there!!!!
    And I am a double victim actually. πŸ˜‰
    And somehow I have started liking Discovery travel n living too. Its like you are on a virtual world tour. πŸ™‚

  4. @yaake
    Hey cool! Great if you could do the first one with the original set of rules!

    @Ish
    No leg pulling grrr (I used to sleep with a red bear!) And ya junkyard wars thats one hell of a show.. I am surprised no one tried it here yet!

    @Ruhi
    πŸ˜› what thanku vankyu? corrected the link!

    @Amit
    I read yours after I wrote mine! So many victims like u mention! 😦

  5. Hindi dubbing trashed almost anything worth watching on Indian TV.

    Takishi’s Castle was good.

    Discovery’s good sometimes. Boring sometimes. Junkyard Wars was something I watched regularly when small.

    Star World, AXN, Zee Cafe are the only ones worth watching left. Simpsons rocks!

    Monoply is sooo boring. Once I made this deal with my sister that we would keep on playing and pass on the games to our descendants and keep doing that until it finally finished. Got bored in half an hour.

    “What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?- Shit”
    lol πŸ˜›

  6. oh. so everyone has done this tag except me :(.

    I was kinda busy. will do it sometime this week. πŸ™‚

    πŸ™‚
