... Bike Squad, BBC 2 in five minutes. From the Guy behind D the D D.
ITV six minutes ago.
I've seen the adverts, it looked like one of those "riding a bike is eccentric and funny" programmes to me - will try and catch it at some point though.
(Apropos of nothing at all, I did like the bit of Hot Fuzz where the Simon Pegg character's bio mentions "advanced cycling")
Oh dear - I have struggled with the humour. (Been spoilt by CC obviously )
Damn! I don't have a 13 year old
I watched for about half an hour. Then I remembered something. Every television has an OFF switch.
I spent 20 minutes or so ignoring the storyline and trying to read the make of the bikes on the downtube before giving up altogether. I did spot Specialized on a chainstay though.
I watched it, for a bit, just to see if they used Smith and Wesson bikes.
They did use them, I then realised I was watching ITV, jonathan ross wasn't on BBC1, then panicked and ended up watching quiz call for a bit of whorey succour
I've recorded it as I was out last night, not sure from the comments it'll be worth the effort.
I have also recorded this program. Have I wasted 230v?
I was watching BBC2 at the start, didnt see your post saying it was on ITV1. Thought it was strange there was some guy learning martial arts, it bored me so i went up a channel and did find Bike Squad. It wasnt bad, i watched most of it. Some bits in there were good, some were bad. Wouldnt watch it again, but it killed some time.

Light entertainment - that's it - I enjoyed it.
I lasted 15 minutes, it seems that ITV can even make Guy Jenkin stuff unwatchable.
