I've just looked at the terrestrial tv listings for New Year's Eve and day and they are pretty rubbish imo. Lots of old films and repeats. And although I haven't seen much tv over Xmas as visiting I haven't seen much in the tv magazine that I've missed. We have Netflix and stuff but I feel annoyed that BBC can't be bothered to make any decent programmes.

YANBU absolute crap.

Although I haven't seen Witness for the Prosecution yet. Still holding out hope.

Witness for the prosecution was great - but v bleak! If you enjoyed Rillington Place, you'll enjoy it ... fshock rest looks like awful crap. We've been watching a box set of dvds. Terrestrial tv is dead ..

Yanbu however TV on new ears Eve has always been shit in my opinion. Wheeling jools Holland out every year for that yawn fest.
I will find something to binge on Netflix on Nye.

Total crap.

I have just watched Jo Brand with a programme about rescue kittens which was ok. Not Christmassy though!

Witness for the Prosecution , Inside Number 9 make up for the rest of the shit .

Unicorn1981 Wed 28-Dec-16 21:17:38

Oh yes that IS one I want to watch. I watched and enjoyed 'And Then There Were None' last year. EE was a pile of tripe too.

HunterHearstHelmsley Wed 28-Dec-16 21:18:09

Witness for the Prosecution was good. Rest was shit.

But Ethel and Ernest was just fantastic. There are some gems.

Really regret paying my TV licence as all the stuff has been on Netflix, amazon prime or now tv. Which are all cheaper than the tv licence!!!

I am watching Jo Brand on 5+1. So many kittens.

Just cried my eyes out to Ethel and Ernest. Beautiful

YANBU, it's been terrible.

Pure drivel. Netflix is our saviour.

Ethel and Ernest is a cartoon. Fgs.

Hated The Snowman, too.

Squeegle Wed 28-Dec-16 21:26:54

Cara, what is your point? That an animation can't be any good?

OhStuffingBalls Wed 28-Dec-16 21:27:49

Its been pathetic. usually I get the Xmas Radio Times and am highlighting like crazy for what I am going to watch or record.

There was almost nothing this year.
