  • TV is crap

    Is it me or is anyone else disappointed with the bullcrap that passes off for TV these days ? I'm thinking along the lines of Big Brother, X Factor, Pop Idol, virutally all reality shows basically, the Jeremy Kyle show, etc, etc the list goes on !!

    Not all TV is bad though - CSI, House, Heroes, in fact quite a lot of US telly. Surely there's got to be something Made in England that's good quality ??

    I agree, 'Strictly' sends me straight to the cptr refuge. I like to watch discovery and history progs. We are all different and like different things.

      One programme I've watched on discovery features the british adventurer Bear Grylls. Long story short he does a 1hr show describing how to survive in diff conditions like desert, swamps, etc. The image of him eating a snake raw will stay in my mind forever...

        I hate uk gOLD, with the empahasis on OLD. Some of the shows are good, British comedy at it's best, the only problem is that they are repeated too often.
        The only reason I say this is my other half swears by UK gOLD and I could almost quote Open All Hours word for word and as for that Bucket woman she really gets on my. That been said I'm signing off to watch what others find loathsome.Strictly. TTFN
        Make some one smile today.

          Strictly's ok but I'm probably the only one in the country who can't stand Bruce Forsyth, and Tess Daly has as much TV personality as a box of paracetamol I can't stand her.

          I have to thank UKTV Gold (or Dave or Watch or whatever) for increasing my knowledge on cars, due to the non-stop repeats of Top Gear, although I don't get tired of watchin Only Fools

              No, but maybe if I try some (2 bottles) I might be drunk enough to sit through the X Factor

                No, but maybe if I try some (2 bottles) I might be drunk enough to sit through a whole episode of the X Factor without complaining about modern British society

                      The news is even worse - it fuels the panic about the credit crunch and recession which results in more news about it and so on and on and on.

                      Top advice - buy a DAB radio and listen to Radio 4 or 7.
                      There's an old ditty about the pictures being much better on the radio.
                      47 BC : Julius Cesar : Veni Vidi Vici : I came, I saw I conquered.
                      2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
                      How times change.

                      If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

                        Yeah I agree with you on the news bit, although I don't seem to be affected by the credit crunch - still got money in the bank
                        Hmmm... radio. Not sure about radio - if I want music I've got it on my mp3.

                        Didn't know there was a radio 7 ??

                          Believe me if you think the US telly is any better, we only see the best of it. I lived there for a bit and I thought my brain was going to corrode.

                            US TV when watched in the US...

                            It takes an age to watch a program.
                            On holiday once we watched Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang it was on for nearly four hours.
                            Towards the end the adverts get more frequent.
                            We adopted the British way of watching - as soon as the adverts come on - get a drink, do some odd jobs anything but watch the ads.

                              We do see the best of US tv but what about best of British ? Dr Who (yawn) ? Any soap (f$88ing bull*!&* don't get me started)
                              Surely we can't just switch off our TV's and listen to the radio for entertainment - we can't be at that stage can we ??
