Top 5 Summer TV favorites

I actually like summertime television!
Here are my top 5 favorites (in no particular order that are showing now, Patrick) :

Hell's Kitchen - Love this show, although I'm not too hip on how extreme he gets with them. This season is interesting, I don't personally see any contestants who seem ready to run a high end kitchen, that's just my opinion. But, their lack of skills/techniques make for a good show because they constantly fuel Chef Ramsey's fire!

Top Chef - I love the creativity in shows like these. This is a good season, there are a few great and creative chefs. Sometimes I think, 'Yuck, I would never want to eat that!' Then other times, I wish I had smell-a-vision!!!

So You Think You Can Dance - This is just and all around fun show! This season is great because I really really love almost every dancer! I do have my faves, but they all do such a great job!

Big Love - Admittedly, against my beliefs, but I sure do love watching all the troubles they have because of it! Most men can't handle 1 wife, I don't think he's doing a great job either and now it looks like he's interested in maybe adding wife #4! LOL

On the Lot - Again, I love the creativity here! My favorite is Sam, he's right up my alley. I have liked every film he has done. My favorite is still 'The Replication Theory' You can go to their website and watch it, funny, funny, funny!!!

I also really enjoy Design Star. It has not yet started (July 22). Here is that creativity again. I love to see how people translate their ideas on tasks given to them. Maybe secretly I'm jealous, I love a good challenge!!!

I don't watch TV but I've heard my mom talked a lot about "So You Think You Can Dance". She absolutely love the dancers and their dancing skills! :D

Weird - I was just thinking about doing a post on how much we love Big Love!

I actually grew up in a little town in Canada which (still to this day) has a very large polygamous community not far from it. (10 miles out of town)

It's definitely NOTHING like the compound on the show, but there are some similarities. Hubby and I love love love this show - it's so different and complex.... and addicting! :-)

I love Hell's Kitchen. I was hoping there were others out there. I worked for a pastry chef and they really are that mean. He threw things and cursed us all the time. I made him mad one day and he put me in front of a gas stove that had a leak and I had a horrible migraine. I was too afraid to say anything. I am out of the business today. It too stressful.

I watch him on BBC America also. Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. This Fall there is suppose to be the American version. Can't wait.

Thanks for stopping by my Friday Feast. :o)

Do you realize there are six shows listed here?

BeccaGirl said...

Yes, That's why I did it differently and mentioned that I have liked this show before, but this season has not yet started.


Hi Becca, you left a nice comment on my blog, thankyou. Here are the details of places to shop for yarn in London (that I know of). John Lewis and Libertys are big department stores with a haberdashery section. They tend to stock the best known brands such as Rowan and Debbie Bliss. Stash and Loop are much more interesting to me as they have a wider range and stock less usual brands but they are further out of central London than the big shops. Hope you have a pleasant visit to England. Best wishes, Helen.

John Lewis:
Oxford Circus W1A 1EX

Regent Street London W1B 5AH

41 Cross Street Islington, London, N1 2BB

213 Upper Richmond Road
London Sw15 6SQ
