Model Answer:
There are many great shows on Bangladeshi TV which I would really love to watch. But, because of time constraints, I just can’t do it as often as I would prefer to do. However, there is one TV show, and also one of the most popular shows, which I seldom miss. So, I will go ahead and talk about that TV show here.

The name of this TV show is called “Ittadi” (meaning “etcetera” in plain English). It is a television magazine programme which was first aired in the year 1989 through the “heart and soul” efforts of one the few most charismatic and popular TV personalities of Bangladesh called “Hanif Sanket”. Regarded also as one of the longest-running TV magazines, if not the longest already, in Bangladesh, it is more of a satire-based entertainment programme which includes regular segments like funny arguments, a foreign filmstrip dubbed in Bengali, country history, a "mail" section, an audience round involving people from the audience to do something funny, live music, dance, and plays.

Anyway, this is such a TV show which is actually kind of impossible to dislike because there is hardly ever any dull moment in it. In other words, I like pretty much everything about this TV show, including
its funny characters, their costumes and their funny ways of saying things. Besides, I also like that particular segment where the foreigners act, talk and behave exactly like a typical Bangladeshi people except, of course, they make it even more entertaining and meaningful.

Anyway, it is such a popular show in my country, primarily because it promotes the culture, traditions and customs of Bangladeshi people, regardless of their age, race, religion and distinct cultural identity, with such a masterful stroke. Besides, I like this show also because it always brings new ideas and new things while also always trying to introduce new talents along with many other existing intellectual
persons from all walks of life.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible. Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me. I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deterioratin
