Keeping Up Appearances
A Touch of Frost

NEVER GET FED UP WITH
Prisoner Cell Block H
Columbo
Cracker
One Foot In The Grave

The series I have on DVD are usually left for a few years before I watch them again. I usually rewatch comedies a bit more frequently. I don't get fed up of any of them.

There are some comedies however, which, even though I have them on DVD, if they are on TV I find myself watching them.
These tend to be my very favourite comedies which are:
Yes Minister/Prime Minister,Red Dwarf, Porridge, Blackadder 2,3 and 4,

These tend to be my very favourite comedies which are:
Yes Minister/Prime Minister,Red Dwarf, Porridge, Blackadder 2,3 and 4,
I'm the same with Red Dwarf (especially first 6 series) - have them on DVD, yet still watch them whenever they are on TV too, so that says a lot about how not fed up I am of them!

Also Blackadder (all of them, even the rarely repeated series 1, are always worth a repeat viewing and are never dull!)

The other classics you mention are also very watchable time after time without getting fed up with them. I'd also add 'The Good Life' to that list.

In terms of other shows on the 'never fed up with' list: Doctor Who, Columbo, Diagnosis Murder (even though I know the scripts off by heart by now!), the early series of Midsomer Murders (the last three programmes are excellent ones to do the ironing by - you don't have to actually watch them, you can just listen and you know what's happening!).

And I am never fed up with anything to do with Formula 1... but I don't think that counts as a programme!

There are probably others that I am addicted to and not fed up with, just can't think any more at the moment!

I do get a bit fed up of OFAH, King of Queens, Scrubs and Everybody loves Raymond and my hubby watching constant repeats of top gear means that i dont really enjoy watching that anymore.

I love Red Dwarf and never get bored of watching it. Same goes for Men Behaving Badly, Friends, Charmed and That 70s Show. 70s show i have on dvd and everytime i watch an episode i end up having to watch the entire series again - cant help myself lol

Never get fed up with:

- Life On Mars
- Ashes To Ashes
- Doctor Who - Series One/Series 27 with Christopher Eccleston will always be my favourite
- Murder, She Wrote
- Diagnosis Murder

Got fed up with:

- EastEnders - quit watching it in 2008 after it had already been the Branning show for a few years
- Downton Abbey. Haven't watched since the second episode of series three and got so pissed off about some of the characters I liked leaving I know I am done with the show. I think it was outstaying its welcome anyway
- Everybody Loves Raymond - Looks bloody awful from what I've seen yet C4 are obsessed with it

I don't watch shows I'm fed up with

There's a lot of shows I'll happily watch again and again but not all the time.

The West Wing
Any Star Trek (except TOS)
Stargate SG1/A
Doctor Who
Charmed

Plus others, probably, if I could think of them

Depending on the episode, I can watch 'The Simpsons' and 'Only Fools and Horses' over and over again, although some episodes I do like to leave a good while before re watching.

I used to watch Egg Heads at tea time but got that fed up of it, I totally stopped watching it, I prefer The Chase now.

I've watched 'Coronation Street' since I was about 9 years old but can get bored with it some times, especially when they kind of repeat story lines or make a really miserable episode.

BIB. I used to watch Eggheads at tea time but got fed up of it about 3 years ago. Although I don't mind The Chase, I'm a fan of Pointless now!
