What Does Your Sky Planner Say about you

Every single evening – nothing on Tv. All my favourite shows have now ended so as soon as the kids are tucked up in bed and I can finally get my paws on that remote to break from from Cbeebies hell I find myself scrolling through page after page of programmes and resorting to the TV planner that have been recorded, desperately trying to find something to watch. I usually always give up and go back to Friends repeats – again. Sound familiar?

My Staple TV show


But I stopped and actually looked at what was consuming over half of my planner storage. So here’s an insight into our crazy tv life and what my planner says about me.
Give me a murder programme with a ridiculous title and I can guarantee it’ll end up in my planner. The wonderfully named Body in the freezer” graced my planner for weeks, much to my sisters amusement. I have lots of real life murder programmes recorded but I can only watch them when my husband is here. Yep. Ridiculous isn’t it? But you can bet your bottom dollar that I won’t ever be watching them in real time on my own. EVER!
Anything weird and wonderful documentaries about ten stone testicles, dogging or dating gone wrong – they’ll be in there too. My favourite ever was The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off – God bless him.

Kids films / tv shows

We have DVDs. We have Netflix. We have all of the kids tv channels. We even have old vhs! But somehow I still have god knows how many films saved in our planner. They’re never watched yet Charlie is like a bloodhound – he can tell from 50 yards away if you’re hovering to delete – seriously, don’t mess with his Sooty recordings. Charlie also likes to randomly record the end of shows he thinks the girls will like. Whilst this is ridiculously sweet and caring – it is also a smidge annoying when you’re constantly having to delete 2 minute recordings of My Little Pony.
Random recording thanks to babies
Shows usually on at 3.25am are saved in there from where theyvd gotten their little mitts on the box and put weird and wonderful things on the R button. Thank god for parental controls as we’ve had brief dalliances into the 900’s on the dial – very awkward eating breakfast with jiggling ladies shaking their booties whilst holding a phone I tell you.
Teen Mom 2

I Loveeeeeeeeeeeeee Teen Mom 2 Far too much for a 29 year old


Reality Tv
YES! You will undoubtedly find TOWIE, X Factor and Teen Mom (tip of the iceberg …believe me) on series link; weeks in advance. I’m umm-ing and ahh-ing on bringing Geordie Shore back into my life as I don’t feel like I have enough trash to feed my addiction…I’ve even resorted to watching old Jersey Shore on repeat to feed my addiction. Man the Americans can brawl! What can I say, I absolutely love them. Oh and any celeb reality crap. Blue in Ibiza? Katie Hopkins Fat Club? Katie Price goes to a supermarket and buys a pint of milk – YES! GIVE IT TO ME NOW
Entire series saved
This is my husband. He has watched all of Game of Thrones, Revolution, Homeland – yes all of them. But will not delete them from the planner despite them clogging it all up. He can buy then on Dvd, watch on catch up or even now watch repeats but noooo. I am not allowed to even scroll over them otherwise I’ll be given the death stare. I would point out he’s never ever watched them since they were initially watched but using over 25% memory for absolutely no reason to him is perfectly acceptable.
So to sum up, my tv planner says I’m incredibly trashy with slightly murderous tendencies that hates massively dislikes kids television (2 minute snippets and full length episodes) and may use this murder knowledge to sort my husband and reclaim my 25% memory back so I can watch Teen Mom 2 in peace.
What would yours say about YOU?

    We just got TiVo and cancelled sky so not so much random stuff at the mo, just Neighbours, Home & Away (for some reason sunshine makes soaps more interesting – may be to do with half naked, tanned, buff men gracing the screen) and NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, Hawaii five-o (another one with sunshine and one specific half naked man), and now NCIS New Orleans which starts on Fri.

    So that clearly says I like sunshine and half naked men… I’m so transparent!

    I really need Sky so I can have this planner! I watch the same reality TV as you, I watched all the Teen Mom 2’s while I was pregnant, and even watched all the Kardashians too (I had a LOT of spare time!) If I didn’t have all the game of thrones on DVD I would probably be like your husband and have them all saved! I do re-watch them quite often though. After moving last weekend I found so many DVD’s I didn’t even knew I had, so I’m currently watching the first season of One Tree Hill xx

    Haha I had to laugh as our planner is so similar! We have films on there from before Christmas we have no intention to watch, but won’t delete! Give me all the trash TV too, I’m so addicted I’ll even watch the reruns I’ve seen a thousand times

    Think our planners are quite similar!

    Mine currently has a mix of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Curious George and Rhyme Rocket – all very specific episodes that could be requested / demanded by Wonderboy at any moment.

    For hubby – Game of Thrones, Running Wild with Bear Grylls (ok I like it too) and Mock the Week.

    I’m a bit ashamed to say that I’m responsible for Neighbours (it’s the only 23mins I can call my own in the day), trashy day time movies, Birds of a Feather and Age Gap Love. Though I do like a dose of Teen Mom (guilty crush on the therapist Doc whatshisname)oh and Obese: A Year to Save My Life.

    For evening entertainment for both of us – The Middle, Two and a Half Men, CSI, Restoration Man, Location and Modern Family.

    Oh dear, I think we watch too much tv …
