Just watched the second episide (yes i know its late but what do u do when u cant sleep) hmm

I found this episode better. The first one was all about aggression & force. This one not so much.

Ooh it's on again boys and girls! I thought it was a one off episode

It was an awful programme and I think he would have definitely been more heavy handed had the camera's not been there. In regards to his kid,definitely doesn't share his dad's brummie roots, did they mention where he was from? I guess they wouldn't but I spent most of the programme swearing at the telly so I might have missed a bit.

I can't believe channel 4 commissioned a programme such as this, it's not entertaining or informative in the slightest it just seemed to ridicule and humiliate all the people he was in charge of taking things from.

Although i found it quite unsettling to watch but i can understand why he has to go in harsh. Some people who dont pay their bills will do anything to keep the stuff.

He had a point when he said 'if u pay your bills you wont see me'. This is why i dont have credit cards/loans/finance. I buy what i have the money for.

Tim Dowling reviewed it and said it that "By the end of part one I wanted someone to come and take my telly away"

It seemed a good one to skip. Apparently there's more next week. It is disturbing the topics that television companies think we will want to watch these days.

Urgh, I watched the first few minutes of this last night and had to turn off in disgust. No excuse for not treating people with respect.

He seemed like a thug who has managed to find himself a job where he can play out his violent/abusive fantasies every day.

Why are "jobs" like this still legal? angry

watching on +1, 5 mins in and i already am feeling the rage!

Yes that por man whose car he just jumped in in the middle of the night would have got a right kicking. Surely a situation doesn't need to b dealt with like that. Completely unlikeable man smearing his baby's food all round his mouth. Urgh horrible prog didn't last til the end sad

His kid seems bizarrely quite posh!

Ummm. Taking his son for a bike ride at midnight.
Can see his wife. AIBU....

Now what makes you say that Kim! grin grin

kim147 Thu 02-May-13 21:48:27

I don't think he votes Labour.

delboysfileofax Thu 02-May-13 21:40:01

Bloody talented artist though! Why can't he stick to that?

Laquila Thu 02-May-13 21:38:51

Just (accidentally!) saw 5 mins of this and had to turn over in horror...ugh ugh ugh

Yes, if that is him on his best behaviour, God knows what happens when no cameras there.

delboysfileofax Thu 02-May-13 21:37:13

Also think if the camera wasn't there that bloke would have got a hiding

delboysfileofax Thu 02-May-13 21:35:51

Poverty porn at its best sad

I can't believe that he is allowed to carry on like that. Arrogant tosser.

madasamarchhare Thu 02-May-13 21:25:08

Yes I think that's what's bothering me. He's really rude arrogant and patronising. I don't really even think its a programme that should get airtime

kim147 Thu 02-May-13 21:22:47

It was really scary when he opened the door and grabbed the keys off the women in the car.

madasamarchhare Thu 02-May-13 21:16:17

What a horrible programme. Don't think I'll b watching til the end. Horrible man shouting and swearing but has the attitude of look how fab iam .. Urrrgghh. Don't know what I wanted to say really but I needed to get that off my chest.
