tv shows that you're forced to watch alone

so i have pretty different taste in television than my roommate and boyfriend, so i usually have to either compromise what i want to watch or choose to watch by myself.
i find that i love the opportunity to veg out solo on a sunday afternoon and pick and choose exactly what it is that i want to watch.
yesterday i realized that there are a ton of shows that i'm forced to watch solo cuz no one else wants to see them.

heres some examples:
Skin Deep and Life's Little Miracles (both of these shows seriously disturb my roomie and boyfriend, but i love them)
Crisis Zone (this show fucking rocks. its about Doctors Without Borders and it follows 3 different doctors around each episode to get a look at the kind of work they do. obviously they encounter some nasty, painful stuff so the roomie and boyfriend don't like it)
Ed and Judging Amy(i blame my mother for getting me hooked on these lame shows that i now love)
Jim Rose Twisted Tour and anything about body modification (once again, this stuff totally grosses them out, but i think its super cool)
Frontiers of Construction (they think its really boring but i find it totally fascinating)
The West Wing (this is partially because i won't let anyone speak a single peep during any moments of dialogue, so its not exactly fun to watch West Wing in my company)

so now that i've admitted that i'm a loser who stays home on sunday and watches the Life Network...
what are some shows that no one will watch with you but you still totally dig?

I absolutely love Frontiers of Construction. I watch a lot of the discovery channel, really. Ultimate Top Ten is another good one.

Someone finds this boring? unpossible.

This is one of the best shows on TV. My personal favourite episodes were the island airport that was built off of Japan, and the giant sand-sail hotel thing in Dubai. Fucking unbelievable.

I'd invite you over to watch it, but you make me uncomfortable.

hahahahahahahaha

there was a FOC episode this weekend about water park innovations that was so cool. this one dude basically designed a water park so that you never really have to get out of the water in order to go to the next ride.
he built a river that you ride through on innertubes throughout the park. he calls it transportainment! and there was some seriously complicated engineering involved. v cool stuff.

it's a problem. i know.







oh, and until i met my current boyfriend, i thought i was doomed to a life of solo "World's Funniest Animals" watching, but thankfully he shares my love for cats in bags and dogs who can do backflips.

i chuckle just thinking about it.

dogs who can do backflips....hahahhahha......*happy sigh*

i almost forgot "Perfect Proposal." i cry every time, and so does the boy, which is why i watch it alone: to spare him the emotional turmoil.


(p.s. please don't tell him that i just posted that on a public message board. thank you in advance.)

ooooo I saw that one!! It was VERY cool indeed. I was itching to take a trip there to try it out :D Hmmmm....where was it again?

As for the shows I am forced to watch alone, well there is really only one:

Little House on the Prairie

I actually have the first 3 seasons on DVD (yes I am willing to admit this). Oh how I love this show. I think it's cause my mom and I used to watch it together when I was a kid. The two of us would cry and cry - haha.

And Liz....I'll watch all the cool doctor/surgery/gory shows with ya. I love watching that stuff :)

OVER THE LINE!!! Your toe was over the line. Donny make him down for a zero.



I live alone so all the TV I watch is by myself but if I was to have company I'm sure they'd have a hard time understanding why I watch Is Harry on the Boat because, quite frankly, I don't understand why I watch it.

What for?!

I often find myself watching 'Dogs with Jobs' alone.

do you watch "World's Funniest Animals" as well? because we might just be tv soulmates.
