Sat around the telly — 6 Comments

  1. Most of my telly consists of the 70s MASH, reruns of QI and Have I got news for you.
    I haven’t watched RTE or TV3 in ages.

  2. The problem with reruns of Have I got news for you? is that the worst jokes have probably come true in the meantime!

  3. Rarely watch TV anymore, particularly at peak times where Drag Queens On Ice seems to be the height of entertainment. “Two things only the people anxiously desire — bread and circuses.”

  4. In 1984 Orwell suggested that the proles were content with beer, pornography and football.

    It seems to have come true, with beer, Love Island and Premier League.

  5. Maybe it’s just getting old, but I miss programmes like World In Action and This Week. They provided the slap in the face that society sometimes requires, sadly they are unlikely to return, lost as they would be in the sea of mindless reality shows.
