Elsewhere has made good her promise to invent a meme, and a meme is a thing I cannot ignore.
1. Earliest remembered television?
I Love Lucy. Which is still funny. But I also remember Gunsmoke, Roy Rogers, Sugarfoot, Bonanza, The Flintstones, Pick-A-Box (starring a very young Barry Jones, who frequently challenged the official correct answers and was always right), The Bugs Bunny Show, Channel Niners, the telecast of the John Martin's Christmas Pageant, and ditto the Anzac Day march, where we would always be able to spot our dad if we looked for the Navy's 'Corvettes' banner.
Pick-A-Box: that's Barry Jones on the right.
2. TV series you would want on a desert island
Prime Suspect, if that counts as a series. All seven of them.
3. TV that made you laugh
The Games. John Clarke and Gina Riley are both brilliant; together they were stellar.
4. TV that made you cry
The Stuart Diver rescue.
5. TV crap that you enjoy
Funniest Home Videos. There, my secret is out.
6. TV you'll never forget.
Hamish Macbeth. Best. TV. Ever.
7. Favourite TV adaptation.
Middlemarch. Not even the ubiquitous Andrew Davies -- a screenwriter who still, after having totally cornered the market in Screen Adaptations of 19th Century Women's Fiction, does not understand that 19th century women's fiction is not about the male characters -- could wreck Middlemarch for me.
Besides, Rufus Sewell was in it.
Rufus the Breathtaking. What is it about a man at a piano?
7. Favourite nerdish program
I don't like nerdish TV. I get enough nerdish in my head.
8. One TV program you are currently watching
9. One TV show/series you have been meaning to watch
I'm with Elsewhere on this one: I think I should at least try to see the point of Desperate Housewives. But oh Lord it's hard.
