I rang the gf, only to be told to call back later cos of that crap. Hate it!
You are not gonna be on your own on this, I avoid like it like the plague. Can hear my missus watching some strange dancing reality show at the moment gives me a little longer on t'net anyways.
I think it's excellent, pushing forward new talent, pushing back the boundaries of broadcasting. a new wave of tv for a new generation.
Should I add that I had my fingers crossed as I typed that so I'm lying !!
I can truthfully write that I have not seen more than a minute in total of these "reality" programmes, in friends homes I hasten to add, without feeling nauseous or wanting to kick their television in. I would rather go to watch paint dry than watch them!
although the last women who sang a whitney song was great!
Yes I heard that, thought Elton John was on !
shame on you mr fudd!
the wife was watching it. it is crap.
can't believe so many tone deaf vocally impaired deluded people want to make complete fools of themselves.
Makes you wonder if there set up?
Ben Elton wrote a pretty terrible book about the X-factor style shows "Chart Throb" which pulls these shows apart and sheds some light on the workings of the selection processes. As if you didn't know to begin with.
It's a poor book but reading some of his theories in print only confirmed it for me.
However his book on Big Brother - " Dead Famous" I thought was a great observation on those types of show and a very good who-dunnit as well.
There were some great comments about Execrable Factor in today's Times:
Something tells me that Caitlin Moran was ever so slightly unimpressed... }
Not just x factor, the whole of saturday night viewing has gone down the pan!
Yeah , agree bugslop, I've muted the tv and am now listening to..................
NEW ORDER !!!
