I know that it is the name of the show, but,what I asked turnipsock was, to know what kind of show it was.. what is it about? What does the content of the show pertain to...etc...

It is about some people that go to various old houses and a medium scares the poop out of Yvette Feilding. If it is a scam, then its a very good one as they into their tenth season.

Dr Who of course but also the sister shows Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures.

I would really like to see Mork and Mindy again!! Also The Kenny Everett Show and The Goodies.

I'm a TV addict so I could never choose just one.

OOOOh I forgot Space 1999, I wanted to be Miya, the girl that could change into other creatures.

Why has 'The Goodies' never been repeated on the satallite channels? I'm not sure if you can even get them on DVD.

I know a couple of people that were in Space 1999...i think...I better ask my mum.

True, but the comedy value of some of the tricks they do is amazing.
Only on TV can you put a sample into a mass spectrometer and get an infrared spectrum from it accompanied by the name and address of the manufacturer.
Also, have you noticed the machines are practically always in good working order and nobody ever screws a sample up (unless that's vital to the "plot").
Please disregard all previous signatures.

Definitely "Have I Got News for You" That's in it's 36th season and it gets funnier each time, I think.

"Intervention"

Oh it was real alright, and it was bleeding (she was cutting herself for a reason you'd have to watch to understand.  When she had finished, she looked down at what she had done and gave the expression easy to interpret:  "oh God, what have I just done?".)

I really enjoy Top Gear (even if it does get some abuse off some people). Also Bones, and most comedy shows, Have I Got News For You, QI, Mock the Week, etc...
Also Mythbusters is worth watching if you have Discovery Channel. Good fun science, even if it is silly at times. And big explosions!
