Ode to Digital Cable's Guide Function

Using the guide to see whats on is SO much better then just clicking through the 30 or so channels you get with regular cable (which is what i'd been stuck with for the past 2 yrs). I'd like to point out 3 random shows I've been watching ever since Digital Cable Guide came back into my life.

  • Man vs Wild on Discovery Channel. Bear Grylls is one crazy mofo. He likes to pee on his shirt before turning it into a hat to wear in the desert. He guts camels and hides in them to protect himself from sand storms. He eats scorpions like they're McDonald's French Fries and drinks water stored in a camels hump like its a Cosmopolitan. Why does he do this? Because he can. That's why. Some people think the show is phony.. and you know what I say to them? Try eating a goat testicle, because something tells me that isn't really a candy apple that Bear Grylls ate on the show last week.
  • House Hunters. One of the 35 HGTV shows I'm obsessed with at the moment. But this is by far my favorite. The viewer gets to go along for the ride as a home buyer checks out 3 different houses. Sure it makes me cry a little when I realize how much cheaper houses are in most places compared to Boston, but its still super fun to watch.
  • Whose Wedding is it Anyways? on Style Network. I remember in college my roommate Lynn and I were obsessed with TLC's A Wedding Story. Lol unless it wasn't a cute couple, then we'd change the channel! Anyhoo, Whose Wedding is it Anyway is by far the best wedding show on tv. ever. It follows around Wedding Planners in all parts of the country and you can see how different cities and styles really are. The best planner on the show is Lynette Richardson Hall, from Baltimore. She's a diva. She's the best.

oooh! I tivo Whose Wedding and Man VS Wild. Not to be a bummer, but I just read somewhere that Bear Grilz was caught sleeping in a hotel, while "out in the desert." don't know how true it is... but he is once crazy mofo!!

Yah, I've heard the same thing as Andrea about Bear Grylls. Although I love him/the show anyway.

I loooove House Hunters, but it does depress me, too.

Sarah said...

I have and will always love House Hunters. It's the best. I haven't been able to watch Who's Wedding is it Anyway? since my wedding. Can't do it.

I've never watched any of these shows but the wedding one has my interest peaked. Wedding shows are always entertaining.

I love Man Vs Wild & House Hunters! The boyfriend and I always watch those when we're together. I don't have cable so I have to wait until we're visiting. I take over his TV obviously.

House Hunters!! I love it so much. I am debating buying a condo JUST so that I can maybe be on the show. (And do you think they look at more than three places? That seems awfully limiting...)

LBIC said...

haha I was obsessed with A Wedding Story too. That and A Baby Story. Sigh, TLC is the ish.

Golightly said...

OMGosh I was the same way - changing channels on Wedding Story (and Baby Story) if the couple was not cute ;)

PrincessPolly said...

That Bear Gryls dude is a bit of a freak, I agree! I've never watched the show but i saw him slagged off often enough on the last series of Harry Hill's TV Burp to know he's a bit odd. I'm sure in one programme he was in he was DEMONSTRATING how long it took someone to die if they fell through ice in frozen water. Weird . . .

I always warn my friends to turn off Whose Wedding, because it's always more than one episode in a row, and once I start watching I will. Not. Stop. LOVE IT!!

Also, "Say Yes to the Dress" on TLC is fantastic, it follows the bridal consultants at a big bridal salon in NYC.

And Bear Grylls is hot - who cares if the show is real?

I love HGTV and Style. They've hooked me and I don't mind it one bit. :)

I just can't quit you!
