3 things: Must See TV

Cindy-Brady-red-light-syndrome

Let’s play a round of 3 things to get this Monday started on a fun note. Today we’re talking about something that’s a time waster, a stress reliever AND sometimes, even an educator; the all mighty TV! It’s the Must See TV edition.

What show do you watch every time you come across it? House Hunters, which proves problematic since it seems to be the only thing ever on HGTV.

What show reminds you of your childhood? The Brady Bunch (which in all honesty, could be the answer to the first question too.) I have so many memories surrounding this show. When I was 3 and 4, at least once a week my Grandmom used to pull me in a wagon to Gino’s for lunch (which I think is a now closed fast food place.) We’d bring our hamburgers home and watch the Brady Bunch over lunch, then I’d go for a nap. It’s such a sweet and pure memory that I almost cry just thinking about it.

And believe it or not, The Brady Bunch is probably one of me and Tyna’s most quoted shows! Cindy Brady red light syndrome, as shown above, became part of our vernacular ever since our Supermarket Sweep appearance. And “Sounds great, Greg” is used whenever one of us is passionately making sense. Which is often.

What show will you never watch again? The Real Housewives of every city but New Jersey. I just can’t quit my paisans yet! But I can not take even one more episode of any others.

Ok we heartsters, your turn. Cut and paste and join us in a round of 3 Things:
What show do you watch every time you come across it?

What show will you never watch again?

    What show do you watch every time you come across it? Reruns of Sex and the City are impossible for me to pass by (even the edited version they show in syndication– I like trying to remember what curse word is being bleeped out).

    What show reminds you of your childhood? How could it be anything but The Brady Bunch? It was my everything! Your Gino’s story is so sweet, and get this– the chain has been reopened in Baltimore and lines are out the door. By the way, I love Cindy’s sassy little updo in that photo!

    What show will you never watch again? American Idol. I watched the first few seasons, then it was “Seacrest out” forever.

    This is such a fun question!

    What show do you watch every time you come across it? If there are old Gilmore Girls episodes on, I’m all about it. Such a smart and charming little show.

    What show reminds you of your childhood? Punky Brewster! I loved her spunk and style.

    What show will you never watch again? I was excited for ABC’s Once Upon a Time, because I love the mythos of fairy-tales, but it seemed so utterly ridiculous that I couldn’t get through the pilot episode: fairy-tale fail.

    What show do you watch every time you come across it?
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, House Hunters and yes, The Brady Bunch.

    What show reminds you of your childhood?
    Gotta go with The Brady’s on this one too! I think I watched at least two Brady episodes a day from the time I was able to control the television until my late teens. Love your story @Stef! So sweet – and I;m glad the Brady’s continue to make you happy to this very day. (Even if it is a little bittersweet). Also “sounds great Greg” has spread to my life beyond Stef! I catch myself saying it to others and when I get a puzzled look I’m all “oops -sorry!” Hee.

    What show will you never watch again?
    Real Housewives! I had a roommate that loved them all – Beverly Hills, NYC, Atlanta, etc – and I tried to watch a few to see what the fuss was all about. It was truly painful! Such awful human beings behaving in awful ways. Never again!

    What show do you watch every time you come across it?
    The Golden Girls or Murder She Wrote. Yes, I’m a senior citizen trapped in the body of a woman in her mid-30’s.
    What show reminds you of your childhood?
    The Golden Girls or Murder She Wrote. Yes, I was a senior citizen trapped in the body of a child. Which is kinda creepy and the plot for one of the episodes of Amazing Stories (Kick the Can).
    What show will you never watch again?
    Any “reality” show. I hate them all. The Real Housewives of the Dancing Hoarding Pawn Star Moms and Honey Boo Boo can all go away now.

    What show do you watch every time you come across it? Gilligan’s Island- Don’t laugh but when I was just a wee one I had a crush on Gilligan..
    What show reminds you of your childhood? The Brady Bunch! I have a brother Greg too but let me just say, he was much worse than Greg Brady by a long shot!
    What show will you never watch again? Too many to mention! But for sure all of the Housewives!

    What show do you watch every time you come across it? Law and Order: SVU. I don’t know what it is about women and children in peril, but it sucks me in and usually makes me sob.
    Runner-up goes to Toddlers and Tiaras. I can’t help myself…

    What show reminds you of your childhood? The Cosby Show! I was about Rudy’s age when I started watching it, so I feel like I grew up with her…

    What show will you never watch again? Toss-up between the Kardashians’ show and Duck Dynasty. UGH.

    Gino’s is totally back! In fact, the first opened a few doors down from my old job in Maryland. I picked up my boss’ to-go order at least once a week! As for your questions …

    What show do you watch every time you come across it? – NCIS, Bones, Parks and Recreation, Gilmore Girls and Jeopardy.
    What show reminds you of your childhood? – Full House or Cosby.
    What show will you never watch again? – Half the shows on Food Network (most noteably, ‘Semi Homemade with Sandra Lee’ or anything with Sandra Lee) and most of TLC as well (‘Sister Wives is a train wreck I can barely take my eyes off of!).

    I don’t watch TV at home, I only watch it when I’m at the gym doing cardio!
    What show do you watch every time you come across it? Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I don’t watch it except at the gym–it’s on all the time, and it’s mindless. But I prefer to watch action movies that happen to be playing on TV like Transformers, or Gladiator. The TV shows I actually like are Grimm, New Girl, Parks & Rec.
    What show reminds you of your childhood? The Simpsons.
    What show will you never watch again? There are sooooo many… especially reality TV shows.
