My Favorite Movies and TV Shows: Blogging Challenge Day 16




Day 16: Favorite movies and/or TV shows.


My favorites are oldies but goodies, meaning you can only view them via re-runs.  One of my all-time favorite shows when I was a kid was Three's Company.  I always thought the misunderstandings between the characters were so silly.  Looking back at the episodes now, I think "Duh!?", but still love 'em!







Another favorite was (and still is) Friends.  Since the show originally came out just after my college years, I felt I could relate to some of their predicaments, since they were "my age".  Anytime it's on, I'll watch it. :)





My favorite, favorite, favorite TV show is Seinfeld.  Still to this day when the re-runs appear on TV, I giggle.  The dynamic of the characters is priceless.



My all-time favorite movies are once again, "oldies".  I enjoy the 1980's cult classics Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Lost Boys (something about Jason Patric back in 1987), as well as a 1970's cult classic, Jaws.  



When the movie Jaws came out I was only 2 years old.  However, when we'd visit the beach house in Delaware each year, the movie would play at the cheap theater.  Probably around the age of 7 or 8, my father and uncle decided to take all the kids to see Jaws.  Mind you, we were vacationing on a beach...with an ocean...and sharks, somewhere in those waters.  That movie scared the bah-jee-bees out of me!!!  I didn't go in the ocean, nor any lake, for years.  I even had to double check before jumping into a pool when I was a kid (Yes, I know, sharks can't live in pools, but Bull Sharks have been known to get into a lake!).  Anyway, I look back and, no, it's not so scary anymore, but when you're a kid, loads of things are scary.  Regardless, it became one of my favorites. 

Have a nice day!

  7. Haha! When I was little we always went to the Delaware or Virginia beach! After the movie Jaws, I was never the same! My brothers used to sneak up behind me and grab my leg, or they would tell me they saw a fin! Gotta love older brothers!!!
