worst five things on telly

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

Bonnie you mean you actually watched that programme in order to know that you hate it? :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol:

I think I watched it (or a bit of it) once just for a laugh (I like a bit of trash telly like Katie and Peter, it makes me feel very superior :lol: ) but that took the biscuit. (shakes head in despair!). :mrgreen:

Oh hang on, no there's worse........

Oh no, busted! :oops: But I only watched it once! And only because when I flicked over to it, Dr Karl Kennedy from neighbours was asked about one of the subjects and said 'avoid!'. I am sure that was what sparked my interest...

I know sometimes I'm a bit slow on the uptake - especially when it comes to the devious side of my family :shock: :lol:

OH has just upgraded our Sky to HD - against my wishes. It never occurred to me it was for the bloody World Cup!!!

We've just upgraded to a Magic Lantern after our tele went Kaput, but I think we have problem with the Aerial, so we will miss the world cup

We definitely won't be watching The World Cup, both hate football, Olympics, Golf, Wimbledon in fact we don't watch any sport.

Somehow we always find better things to do. :wink:

1. Loose Women (sorry ladies, but seriously...)
2. Local news (I don't care if an egg was thrown at post box)
3. Late-night crime programmes (where the egg incident is dramatically reconstructed)
4. Weather (if you want to know what the weather's doing - look out the window)
5. Jeremy-bloody-Kyle! (where the host is more unstable than his victims / guests)

Now, I'm off to watch Derren Brown :icon_smile:

In no particular order:

Sport (yawn)

'The Thick of it' - some people bang on about this situation alleged-comedy as though it's brilliant. It mystifies me - what the hell are people laughing at? I mean, there are some sitcoms which aren't funny because the jokes are crap, but at least you can see why they're supposed to be funny (see next entry for a classic example), but I just can't see what's even supposed to be funny about this. Weird.

'Last of the Summer Wine' - how this steaming pile of complete rubbish became the country's, if not the world's. longest-running sitcom I'll never know. Infantile crap. Please don't give me the usual excuse about it being "gentle humour" rather than belly-laugh humour: there's not much gentle about it. It has a distinctly unpleasant misogynistic strain, ans well as being rather too willing to poke fun at disability (that near-blind old geezer).

'Keeping Up Appearances', by the same author as the above. Just as pathetically infantile in its humour, and also a bit misogynistic.

Anything with that tiresome pillock Michael McIntyre in it.

[Edit] One more for good luck - 'I'm a celebrity - get me out of here!'. I mean I love the idea of taking a few has-been and never-were slebs and dumping them in the middle of a jungle on the other side of the world, but why film them and then bring them back again? Also, reality TV generally, and any other show featuring the Geordie jerks.

Five worst adverts:

'Go compare' with the fat twat with the tash (I agree with Brett53)
L'Oreal "Because you're worth it"
NatWest "Friendly Banking", with the tiresome staff being all fake-friendly and chatty. I don't want bank staff to chat, I want them to shut up and do their job efficiently.
All adverts using American accents for no obvious reason
Tear-jerking charity ads

Best advert:

The John Lewis 'Always a Woman' one: gets me quite dewy-eyed, and it's brilliantly-made to boot. Bet it picks up some well-deserved awards.

Is that the new John Lewis one, I thought it was a Billy Joel song? Anyway it nearly sent me to sleep!

I like the meerkats though it took me a long time to understand the point of the advert.

And I love Sheila's Wheels for the music. :lol:


Hate hate hate L'Oreal but it was worse when they were saying 'because I'M worth it'. Not your'e not. :roll:

But generally adverts are crap and I hate them, we try to record things on the hard disc in advance then we can whizz past the ads! :cheers:

Yes, it is a Joel song, but I believe that the advert uses a new recording of it by the Guillemots.
Obviously the advert doesn't have the same effect on everyone!
