To hate Love Island?

It seems really popular! I hate it...it's cheap and tacky. Or is that the appeal? They swear constantly and seem to promote no strings attached sex. I'm not a prude but I don't like my teenagers watching it. But according to my son 'everyone' watches it...

Last year I watched it cause my then-partner was into it. It's fun to watch with someone. Now I'm single I watch far less trashy reality crap and I can't say I miss it!

happymum73 · 03/07/2017 21:55

I think it gives the completely wrong impression!

Well of course yanbu Hmm everyone has different opinions.

You clearly haven't properly watched it though. Only 2 couples, out of 6 i think, have actually had sex, one of which is still together despite not being on the show anymore and there isn't much swearing at all.

Floofborksnootandboop · 03/07/2017 21:59

YANBU to not like it, YABU to judge it when the comments in your post prove you haven't actually watched it or payed much attention to it.

It's stupid
One of the girls said that she was 'spectacle' of someone's motives
Give me strength

Why are you watching it if you hate it?

Clarky14 · 03/07/2017 22:02

lol I hate it it's a load of shit sorry if some people like it

BitchQueen90 · 03/07/2017 22:02

YANBU. I watched one episode and that was enough. Can't wait until it's over because it seems to be all anyone is talking about these days.

happymum73 · 03/07/2017 22:02

Not watching it. It's on the tv otherwise the teenage boy would be upstairs watching it on his own.

I was glued to it last year - but last years group appear to be a lot more tightly knit than this one.

I've seen bits of this season, my DP hated it last year now loves it this year and I'm the opposite. But the whole staged thing annoys me, and wayyy too many housemates this series and shock evictions.

Clarky14 · 03/07/2017 22:06

Yes ๐Ÿ˜‚

KoolKoala07 · 03/07/2017 22:08

I'm not going to deny, it's a pile of shit. But I bloody love it.

happymum73 · 03/07/2017 22:09

BlueNeighbourhood You're right about the staging,

I love it Blush

YellowCushions · 03/07/2017 22:10

I don't like it. And so many people have recommended it to me and said they thought I would love it. Blush
One of the girls has the same name as my DD and seeing her in all those explicit situations made me feel awkward Confused

Amen, Sista!

ManyManyShoes · 03/07/2017 22:42

It doesnt seem as bad as Geordie Shore? I like to watch it in the background just to look at the beautiful people in a nice setting. Yes, I'm sad.

ShitStorm2017 · 03/07/2017 22:51

Love it, I now live for 9pm and hate Saturday nights! ๐Ÿ˜‚

GlitteryFluff · 03/07/2017 22:59

Oh yep I hate Saturday nights too!
It's trashy but I love it.

happymum73 · 03/07/2017 23:12

Seems to me it's the Marmite of TV!

You are being completely definitely unreasonable. I told my friend I thought it was a pile of shit and she said to itv hub it and if I could only watch one episode she'd agree. I couldn't and now I'm hooked.

KeiraKnightleyActsWithHerTeeth · 03/07/2017 23:40

It is absolute shit and that's why I watch it.
I need an all inclusive, beach holiday for my brain every now and then and this is just that. Nothing of any consequence or with need to concentrate on, to slob out in front of after a hard day at work and raising children.

As for the sex. Meh, if they are safe and consenting who really cares? I wouldn't have sex on TV but shrug I can't get worked up about it, it's the same as eating and that never seems to be off the telly.

Notknownatthisaddress · 04/07/2017 00:07

I think it's utter crap. I watched one episode and tried to watch the second one, but I couldn't stand it. Same with Big Brother. Full of fake attention seeking wannabes, who are desperate for fame but have zero talent.

I am not a tv snob and used to think BB was ok, but it shite now. Most of the contestants already have agents when they go into these shitty programmes, and have often been on stuff like this before.

And don't even get me started on those wanky Made In Chelsea/Geordie Shore/TOWIE type piles of trash.
