    Hi Terry and Dina,

    Just wondering, does your similar lack of interests extend to all classic TV game shows?

    If it doesn't, you might be as excited as I am about the revamp of 'Supermarket Sweep'. If you are fans of the show and have been missing it as much as I have, you will be pleased to know that there will be a new series starting tomorrow evening on ITV2!!

    We could even start an off-topic thread 'Supermarket Sweep Fan Club' if you like?? LOL

    It's going to be very exciting to see it return to TV after such a long time and I hope you both enjoy watching it tomorrow as much as I will!!!

    Love Kayleigh x

      Are there any game shows you don't like Kayleigh??

      Tipping Point is about as low as I'll go, but it IS strangely watchable

      I find Richard Osman's House of Games a bit tedious, just because it's slow and has no jazzy music

      But, at a push, I'd watch most things, even Supermarket Sweep!!

      Love Ellie.

        I don't know what would send you off to sleep tonight Dina - cricket highlights perhaps??

        Hope you're healing well.

        Hi Ellie and Dina,

        Watching serious stuff like politics isn't really my cup of tea (no surprise there LOL). However, I don't mind keeping up to date with the latest political psychic speculation LOL ........

        Apparently, 'Psychic Crazy Kayleigh' and her crystal football (well, this is the football thread! LOL) have predicted a No Deal BREXIT!!! However, I understand that one of her competitors, 'Psychic Silly Billy', has predicted that the World will end at 11.59pm on the night before Halloween - and so the question of whether it's 'Deal or No Deal?' on 31 October probably won't matter at all!!! LOL.

        Well, thats definitely enough serious political debate for me!!! LOL... and TTFN, as it's time for me to watch the second half of Tipping Point on ITV!


        Love and hugs,
        Kayleigh x

          Hi Ellie,

          I haven't seen that quiz show with Richard Osman. Perhaps it clashes with The Chase at 6pm on ITV +1?

          I always watch The Chase after Pointless (no surprise there LOL ) and it means I can avoid watching the boring 6 o'clock news - and watching that definitely would make me doze off!! LOL

          Love Kayleigh

            LOL Kayleigh, yes exactly!! It's on at 6pm when the Eggheads go to recharge their scrambled brains (pun intended)

            There are some episodes on YouTube if you're bored some morning or lunchtime - or at 1am as an alternative to all those shopping channels, night owl that you are

            Enjoy your night's viewing.

            Love Ellie.

              Hi Ellie,

              Thank you for kindly eggspanding my knowledge and enlightening me about the Eggheads.

              Those Eggheads are so eggstraordinarily intelligent that I think watching them might be eggstremely challenging for me -and my quail's egg sized brain would probably get over-eggserted and scrambled eggstra quickly!! LOL

              All this eggy talk has made me eggseptionally peckish ... and, amazingly, my hubby (aka 'Psychic Silly Billy') must have read my mind! - I'm eggsited to see that he's made me an eggsotic snack (a toasted creme egg sandwich) and a rather eggstravagant drink (eggnog) LOL

              I hope you and your family are having an enjoyable evening,

              Love Kayleigh x

                Hi Kayleigh;

                You have gone down in my estimations, that's pretty hard to do as you were already at the bottom. LOL

                Reason I don't like quiz games is because I never know any answers, guess I was never educated.

                Nice evening here, Lamb roast coming soon and watching the motor racing F1. probably much too exiting for most of yous.

                Love Terry

                  I know you love me really TC! - otherwise, why do you keep sending me DVDs of my favourite Top Cat cartoons? - and even more generous than that, you kindly PM'd me with free membership of the 'Top Cat and Benny Fan Club '! LOL

                  In return for your kindness, I was going to arrange for you to have half price membership of the 'Supermarket Sweep Fan Club' (due to high demand, I think that asking for free membership would be pushing your luck!! LOL). Furthermore, I was going to send you my video cassette recordings of all the original Supermarket Sweep episodes (hopefully you still have a VCR player amongst your extensive collection of gadgets!). LOL

                  Your dinner sounds good - how about swapping half of your lamb roast dinner for half of my toasted creme egg sandwich and a few sips of my eggnog??? LOL

                  Love Kayleigh x

                  P.S I thought a cool cat like you would prefer to watch Formula E (it's much more exciting than the outdated Formula 1!! LOL )

                    Hi Kayleigh,

                    One of the nurses told me a few minutes ago about the return of Supermarket Sweep - she was definitely more excited about it than I could even pretend to be. However we did get into an interesting debate about the relative qualities of The Generation Game and Play Your Cards Right. The debate didn't last long, though, as we couldn't think of any qualities.

                    I think you should go ahead and enjoy the quiz shows. After all, they're nowhere near as bad as Terry's all-time favourite television programme... Crossroads. Apparently he would watch it every day waiting for the Formula 1 cars to drive through the crossroads!

                      Hi Dina,

                      I'm a fan of any show starring the late great Bruce Forsythe (and, yes, I even enjoyed watching Play Your Cards Right! LOL).

                      You and Terry might be familiar with Crossroads but that was way before my time LOL! I am a fan of soaps though (no surprise there! LOL) and I wasn't pleased when the soap 'El Dorado' was taken off TV after only one year of broadcasting from 1992 to 1993. I enjoyed watching it and It wasn't that bad really!! LOL

                      Love Kayleigh x

                        Hi Dina and Kayleigh;

                        Very funny, it made me smile. Years and years ago I did watch Cross Roads sometimes. I to was very surprised when they stopped El Dorado, it would have been a success. I think it started slowly but it takes a while for people to get used to new things.

                        Good to have some conversations about other things with the nurses.

                        Love Terry

                          Hi Terry,

                          I can let you off not being a fan of all the other TV shows I like, now that I know you quite liked El Dorado!

                          I think that the soap El Dorado was what some people would call an acquired taste - and I think you are right, that it was taken off air too soon! Having said that, most of the people I know haven't even heard of it LOL

                          I enjoyed finishing off my creme egg toastie - some might say that's an acquired taste too, but I quite like it dipped in warm custard! LOL

                          I hope you enjoyed your roast dinner.

                          Love and hugs,

                            Hi Kayleigh,

                            I'm very excited at the prospect of finally being recognised as a fully-fledged member of the El Dorado fan club. **jumps up & down squealing delightedly.

                            I must also admit to being a fan of University Challenge. I don't think there is anything to beat Jeremy Paxman's reaction when someone offers a ridiculously wrong answer.

                              Hi Dina;

                              Can't remember much about the soap, El Dorado but I believe it was fairly nice and set in a nice sunny place. It was getting popular when it axed.

                              Like news papers, only bad news ones survive. Must say something for the british public or maybe the whole world.

                              Love Terry
