Ok yeah, I have RAGING pmt, but I fucking despise ITV. It's just run by cunts and watched by cunts. I'm sure it didn't use to be as bad as it is now? Daytime TV cunts, reality tv cunts. Cunt Factor. News at Cunt. As for the win no fee, bingo, money shop, over 50s car insurance.

Oh hang on...Star Wars has just started....

You forgot adverts for over 50s life plans where you're pretty much guaranteed to pay in loads more than you'll ever get out but you get a Parker pen so it's all ok.

I watch itv, guess that makes me a cunt.

I know what you mean, but they do make up for it every now and again by having Star Wars on.

Highlight of my week for the next 4 weeks now.

dh hates itv too,i grew up on itv,bbc was for posh people and southerners, according to my mum.

Don't they have Downton? Enough said.

Because Dinner Date. That is all.

(The rest is an utter turdfest though)

I forgive ITV - but only because of Poirot.
The rest of the time I watch other stuff on other channels.

thebody Sat 26-Oct-13 16:27:29

there's tons of shit on the Bbc too.

MrsBertMacklin Sat 26-Oct-13 16:27:54

Tricky one. YANBU for the reasons listed, but on the other hand, if obliterated from history, we would be without DangerMouse, Count Duckula and Kate Thornton would probably be ruining Strictly.

Hands off Morse!

I think ITV have really upped their game recently, in the drama department at least. Broadchurch, The Bletchely Circle, Marchlands, Appropriate Adult etc.

tobiasfunke Sat 26-Oct-13 16:29:50

CITV is sooooo much better than CBBC. It has The Aquabats fgs.

LOLisNOTaPunctuationMark Sat 26-Oct-13 16:29:53

Oh hang on...Star Wars has just started....

Hahahahahaha! Star Wars makes everything okay. Always.

TV is shit in general at the moment.

BBC1 are showing bloody Hyacinth Bucket in the afternoons. I had forgotten how awful it was. BBC2 are showing Cagney and Lacey and Allo Allo. confused

As a child we weren't allowed ITV and especially not Tiswas.

TV is shit in general at the moment
You're watching the wrong TV. My planner is crammed full of wonderful stuff; True Blood, Homeland, Walking Dead, Elementary, Chicago Fire, x factor The Newsroom, Haven...

squoosh Sat 26-Oct-13 16:45:28

American TV especially is going though a bit of a golden age.

thebody Sat 26-Oct-13 16:59:11

oh Sparkling!! why not? meanies wanting better for their children.grin

mine let me watch utter shite all day!

Sparklingbrook Sat 26-Oct-13 17:01:37

thebody DH got his pocket money on a Saturday morning and was allowed to go and but sweets and comics, then back home to watch Tiswas. shock

I had to watch Noel Tidybeard and poshpaws. sad Or 'go out and get some fresh air'.

Catmint Sat 26-Oct-13 17:12:26

Sparklingbrook Sat 26-Oct-13 17:13:44

Was it the same for you Catmint? sad

ppeatfruit Sat 26-Oct-13 17:16:44

Sparkling My parents didn't even get an effin' TV till the late 60s deliberately too. I hated them for it we just felt soo left out at school sad Yet bizzarrely it turned out nearly the whole family earns it's crust from <whisper> ITV; there's a lot of good on it. TG for the remote so I can silence the adverts.
