Sample Answer 1
Some television programs get you chuckling to the bone and one such program is ‘Huisha Juisha’. It was a local television program in our area and was one of the most sought-after tv programs for every age group. This was the story of two twin sisters, Huisha and Juisha, who used to go through all sorts of hassles that a teenager usually goes through. It used to entrance me to a great extent as the situations that were covered in this program were pretty realistic.
It used to air every Saturday and Sunday from 9 PM to 10 PM. After doing my homework and every essential pending task, which usually used to be nothing but studies, I used to get glued to my television for the program. It was so relishing and regaling that every bit of it is still vivid and fresh in my memories. I have never seen any other program which is as chucklesome as it was. We usually get to hear the acronym of ROFL. However, this was one such program which stood true to rolling over the floor and laughing sense.
Although it used to hit treacly and mawkish tones at times, it was a hilarious program primarily.
Sample Answer 2
A TV program that I found really funny was an American show called “How I met your mother” which was broadcast every Sunday last summer.
It was a sitcom with 9 series, each of which included about 24 episodes. I watched all of the episodes and found them absolutely hilarious. The series followed the main character, Ted, who recounted to his son and daughter the time when he met and got married to their mother. The special thing was this – all the events Ted had experienced with his best friends before meeting his wife were illustrated in a highly amusing way. For example, in one episode, Ted described his date with a girlfriend whose name he had forgotten, so Ted and the other characters had to refer to her as “Blah–blah” all the time.
Because of the characters’ eccentric humor and natural acting, this show made me laugh a lot. So, at present, whenever I feel stressed, I replay this series so that I can just put my feet up and have a good laugh.
