Deb said...

1. Forever. What would Monday be without the quiz?
2. Extreme social blunders.
3. Nope. Nothing. Not my favourite phase.
4. M*A*S*H sets the bar very high. I like it because of the enormous pathos that's mixed in with the humour.
5. Oh no! You can't ask me to choose between NCIS and West Wing.

1. Sometimes the motivation/inspiration are pretty low, gotta say. Some barrell scraping goes on.

2.Pimples

3.The crazy adventures

4.Used to be Seinfeld, though I've gone a bit cold in recent years. Maybe UK The Office, or Arrested Development.

5.Hard.. i don't watch many dramas. I like Offspring a fair bit, and reckon I'd like MadMen a lot if I watched more..

Oops..not only did it go twice, I think I meant hissy fits...embarrassing....

1. How long do you suppose this weekly quiz can go on for? - until you call it quits and tell us that we have to think of questions or its not happening - if we think of the questions then there will still be a quiz, just not this quiz.
2. Something you don't miss about adolescence - lack of money; feeling like an 'ugly' duckling (not the face, just all the other parts)
3. Something you do - school holidays (I get jealous of Ian's 'breaks' even though I see the pre-break 3 week hair-puling)
4. Your ultimate TV comedy - erm, Spicks and Specks would have to rate pretty high.
5. Your ultimate TV drama - erm, British crime shows, Monarch of the Glen, Dr Who ...sensing a pattern?

Ruth said...

1. It doesn't have to ever stop does it Ben?
2. high school
3. no financial responsibility
4. The Office (US) or Big Bang Theory..
5. ??? I like NCIS, most of the time, I don't think it's the ultimate.... but I do look forward to watching it when it's on, if I'm home, the kids are in bed asleep etc

KIM said...

1. Ad infinitum!

2. Skin issues

3. Specific friends

4. Big Bang Theory

Sorry, late on this one.

Al- Sadly my need to prove myself lasted a fair bit longer than adolescence..

Belle- Just rewatched the final Arrested Development the other day. So great. I hear they're making new episodes and a movie!

Crazyjed- I liked that in school you saw your friends at least 5 days of the week. No wonder those friendships often became so tight.

Pedro- I still haven't seen Game of Thrones, but from the clips I've seen it looks right up my alley..

Karen- The Office and Mad Men are very good choices

Deb- I have always had this huge prejudice against MASH. I just can't watch it. I think it stems from being a kid, wanting to watch something fun on tele after doing my homework, and I'd turn on the box hopefully, only to be met with that dreary theme song.

One for a wish- That's dissappointing, I was rather intrigued about what a hussy fit might involve.

Ruth- Big Bang Theory has grown on me. Slowly becoming a casual fan. It was great seeing you guys on Saturday!

Laetitia- ha ha, I love your highly practical answer to the 1st question.

Kim- Specific friends is a good one. The friendship distinctions to tend to become a bit vaguer as your circles widen. I do like those old days of having a 'best' friend.
