What we don't do is add things on for extra drama. Like storage lockers with nothing in them and right at the back there's a £6000 clock. It has been proven it's all BS.

That's an American habit and always was and always will be. That and "reality" TV which is far from real, where they sit and say everyone is fake.

In fact, I hate that saying period.

And I agree about the BBC. When it comes to making proper, real life drama they are the best at it. Doctor Foster was amazing, and I like Master Chef. In fact, that is the only reason I pay my TV license (Master Chef). If it weren't for that I'd pull the antenna completely.

C5 are just about demonising people on benefits and the disabled and people with 80 kids, and C4 only have a couple I like (24 hours in A&E and 24 hours? might be 48, in police custody).

err bargain hunters. Or whatever that show was with the camp antinquiter with moustach and glasses. That is some pretty cringeworthy material

reality shows like 24hours in A&E, life and death, pretty much anything on animal planet I enjoy.


Anyway, no pictures to show. But my colleagues had a good sense of humor. Returned to my desk after lunch to see a Bananan and two clementines inappropriately positioned in the shape of an excited male. Just when a female key account manager approached my desk to ask for help.

Personally I prefer BBC for their comedies, loved People Just Do Nothing & I'm sure the new Alan Partridge tonight will be great, there's not many new TV shows I watch but when I do it's pretty much always through iPlayer it seems and so I always make sure I'm paying the license (Although state-owned but generally commercially funded C4's Who Is America was an incredible return to form for Sacha Baron Cohen and they have a lot of good box sets). One stark contrast with American TV for me is the amount of adverts & the way product placement is handled, admittedly we have ultra strict laws regarding the declarations of sponsorship & similar which can make "commercialised" TV stations quite jaunting

Bargain Hunt is cheesy yes. Dickinson's real deal is worse (human carrrot). Both, however, are for pensioners and to be fair there isn't a whiff of BS anywhere. They mostly lose money lol.

Youtube is getting the same. "See how Tavarish bought the cheapest and worst Mercielago in the world". I would bet a tenner right now there is one with the front half missing and worth considerably less.

It's all just tragic exaggeration. IDK why the yanks seem to do that all the time. They do make some good shows (apart from the stuff they just buy from us, like what they have done to Wheeler Dealers etc) but yeah for the most part? it's pony.
