I dare you to look away

Alright, so I’m watching Embarassing Bodies. A UK show, where nothing..I mean NOTHING is out of bounds.

So for tonight’s viewing we have a woman who thought she was allergic to sperm, for over 20 years, having the old nookie was terribly painful. Turns out she had a reaction to being touched, stroked etc and just needed anti histamines..who would have thought.

Now we look at a gentleman to see if he can get back back his normal penis. Yes the poor Chappy had some obscure disease, which surgery could only cure. I was fortunate? to see his operation, well the end of it.. His first operation left a massive gash from one end to ..well the other, which had to be left open for 6 months (I can see you men squirming)before he could have the 2nd. Clap hands everyone the 2nd one was a success and now he can pee and do the other thing he needs to do with it, without any discomfort.

At least the last patient, didn’t have to strip down, she had ear implants. Not quite as ‘woah’ as the last one. The poor love was born without ears, now she has two chiselled out from her rib cage, an implant and can now thankfully she can hear.

For those who haven’t watched this show, I know it’s all in the name of medical …no it can’t even be called medical science. It’s a program that perhaps is trying to encourage those with more than the unusual bodily issues to come forward.

Step right up ladies and gentlemen drop your pants, take off your bra and knickers and stand proud!

I couldn’t imagine fronting up to one of these acclaimed doctors in their mobile vans, (they are good doctors by the way) who tour the countryside to find those willing to show every body part imaginable on public television. I mean what will their co workers think? Strangely though, it’s a program that sucks me in, though it does turn my insides out on occasion.

Thankfully now for my viewing pleasure I have Gordon Ramsay in Hotel Hell…okay it’s the better of two evils.

PS: I didn’t have poetry in me, I haven’t any more news on the Penguins..this is all I had.

TV Shows…. how many have you really watched?

I live in Australia – for those that do not know that already and last night I was thinking of the TV shows that are my favourites and well they are mainly American and some English.

Now how does that work?  In my opinion (and it is only MY opinion) Australian TV shows have only come into ‘being there own’ possibly over the last 10 years. Of course this is subjective, what one likes another won’t, what one gets hooked on, another can take or leave.

I can honestly say there weren’t many  TV shows that were Australian produced/directed that I had an obsession with. I can’t give you a reason why. We have brilliant actors/actresses, we have great story lines…but for some reason… perhaps American shows were not “like we had or lived” more reality that made me veer towards them…who knows. I am sure there are some that I missed out on and it’s a wonder I didn’t need glasses by the age of 12.

Now what are my favourites and yes for some I set a reminder in my phone?

Offspring….BEST AUSSIE TV SHOW produced!

Bondi Vet – if you can Google…oh my this Vet 🙂

Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice (Medical Theme going on here)

Brothers & Sisters (Though sadly not on anymore over here)

Drum role…. Housewifes of Beverley Hills, Housewives of NYC , Tabatha Takes Over & Ellen.

I don’t know what these shows say about me… my taste is varied perhaps or I was terribly bored as a child?

What are your favourites?

What are your MUST SEE’s?

Any wonder I have time to post, but the list has shortened somewhat as I have got older…thankfully.
