to expect not to be treated like a social leper because I don't watch "Britain's Got Talent"

Just don't like this sort of programme, can't see the appeal of it but am quite happy to acknowledge that others do watch it and do thoroughly enjoy it. So why do I have to constantly deal with everyone remarking in aston ishment as thought I was the world's biggest weirdo "you don't watch it?!!" when I tell them I don't.
I'd rather watch paint dry.

I watched the final of the Joseph one purely because I was on the phone to a friend at the time. Bloke who won was a bit dishy though, so it wasn;t all bad. Added JB goodness too.
Other than that, I don't do 'cool' tv. Or much telly at all to be frank.

it seems as though my entire office watches it (except me!) am hoping it will finish soon as have totally had enough of having to listen to everyone talking about it - tbh i might as well be watching it!
conversely I have been watching joseph faithfully each week although no-one else i know has!- and agnesnitt you are quite right lee (the winner) is a total honey!

Don't worry. THis is what happens when you realise that you're surrounded by mundanes. There is a world full of amusing people out there - in fact there are many worlds of amusing people. You just have to find them. And once you have found them it becomes a lot easier to not mind the mundanes.

Me - too, I don't watch this kind of trite, crappy excuse for 'entertainment', nor any of the 'reality' shows. It's all targetted at the lowest common denomenator and cannot understand why seemingly educated, intelligent people (although that doesn't necessarily describe the majority of viewers) will waste their time and rot their brains with this crap. I have friends who watch this dross almost religiously and admit to often telling them how sad they are and to GET A BLOODY LIFE!!!

Shows like Joseph etc are tolerable because adults don't burst into inconsolable tears when they lose. Children do, and last night it broke my heart to see a bundle of little girls crying their eyes out for having lost Seems like gratuitous exploitation to me.
Having said that, I'll definitely be watching the final tonight so I can tut incredulously and make a comment about people who actually VOTE for these shows when either (a)a gappy 6 year old or (b) a little girl doing a Mary Poppins impression or (c) a rather effeminate (that's the sentiment in our house) male baton twirler wins
