Sample Answer One

Television has been my favorite time pass for a very long time. There have been so many shows that I have loved but the one which in some ways has stuck to my personality is ‘Dill Mill Gaye’. This was a romantic comedy that aired when I was in class VIII and have watched the entire show for the next two years.

The show was about doctors who fall in love and then struggle in between their personal and professional lives. It was, I believe and ultimate depiction of what love is in this century. With so many priorities around us, so much of ego, misunderstanding and failures, to be able to keep the love and friendship alive is of a big question and this is what happened in Dill Mill Gaye.

I remember having watched the show twice everyday. The first time when it used to be actually aired and then the next time when it was repeated. The reason I loved watching is too an extent unknown to me. The only thing that I can say is that I loved when the two main leads who were in love, fought with each other. The fact that they could just say about anything to the other person, yet knowing that the other person will always be theirs, the confidence that they had in their love,the madness. Too an extent, yes these were the things that I really loved and has defined what love is for me.

Sample Answer Two

Television has been an integral part of our lives. There have been many shows that I have watched on television, however, now I prefer watching But, the one show that I really loved was Sherlock Holmes. The show is about a detective Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. Watson who go on to solve the tough mysteries which the police is not able to solve and then some which come directly to him.

I think rarely would there be a person who would not love the way Sherlock Holmes just solves the case. The way he just looks into the minute details and leave doctor watson in ultimate shock.

It is truly amazing. Right from the start of the episode one could just sit down wondering as to what might be the scenario this time. How will the events unfurl this time . What new places is Sherlock Holmes going to take us and what else is he going to show us. The mind comes to a reason to certain things and then the quick response from Sherlock Holmes leaves us baffled at the possibilities.

I have almost all episodes of its seasons and watch them whenever I feel lonely or upset or bored or anytime. There is no specific reason to watch Sherlock Holmes in action.
