Since moving into the flat, I have discovered that I now how access to a crap-load of new channels. I am actually far too excited about this.
When me and my sister were younger, we begged our parents to get Satellite TV installed. My dad wasn’t bothered about it, but my mum refused completely because she thought we would stay in front of the TV all day watching QVC. It took us quite a few months to convince her to just let us get a Freeview box!
Now, thanks to the joys of Virgin, I can now watch LivingTV (Americas Next Top Model), Trouble (VERONICA MARS! Its strange to see it with advert breaks) and Nickelodeon, where I have found all my teenage TV addictions. Sister Sister, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Renford Rejects.
I adored the Renford Rejects, and watched it on Sunday night for the first time in about 10 years. And yes, it is still as good as I remember. I had a massive crush on Matthew Leitch when I was 14, and often spent Biology lessons discussing with Helen C why he was the cutest one on there.
I can’t be the only one thinking that kids/teen TV was much much better when we were younger. Having seen some of the crap the CBBC channel shows, I wonder why they don’t just repeat all the good old stuff!
So what were your favourite TV shows when you were a teenager? Who did you have random crushes on from those shows? I’m sure at least someone fancied PJ and Duncan from Byker (Byker Byker) Grove! (And if you know what I’m talking about, do the stupid laugh from the end of the theme tune here)
