    Thinking of one of the questions in the 7 days thing on bbc there was a question about GMTV. I have never watched this programme and some people are astounded at this but I never put the tv on in the morning. Other programmes I'm proud to say I've never watched or seen a single one of are:-

    Coronation Street
    Emmerdale
    Last of the Summer Wine
    The Darling Buds of May
    Frost
    Foyles War
    Peak Practice
    Holby City
    Casualty
    Jeremy Kyle
    The Royale Family
    Cadfael
    Numerous reality TV stuff

    I'm sure there's plenty more but that's just off the top of my head

    I'll add them also but you missed a trick with the Sopranos. Great series.

    More than I have watched, but there are some which get turned off as soon as the first bar of the signature tune plays ......

    Eastenders
    casualty
    Holby City
    Emmerdale

    come to mind

    Have to say though that I have seen a few Coronation Streets - my granny used to watch it when I was little so I had no choice but to watch it when at her house. Are Ena Sharples and Millie Caldwell still in it?

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    I resisted until last year but then started watching it on DVD. Yes, it was very good. To base a show on really awful people who resort to murderous brutal violence at the drop of a hat, but still leaves you with some positive feelings for them takes some doing. At times it was very funny too.

    I finished the final series a couple of weeks ago. I think the standard was uncommonly high almost throughout. I can only remember a few episodes which fell far short of that standard.

    Definitely not one for the sensitive or squeamish though...

    Good sum up of it. Some of the characters are great Paulie Walnuts is great. The episode Pine Barrens where him and Chris spend the night out in the forest is hilarious
