it's pish but I still watch it. Sunday's was awful.
More or less how I feel.
See, this is what I dont understand.
You dont like it, but still watch it?
I dont like Loose Women (of the hatefull daytime tv variety, obviously...
), but would never dream about watching it, let alone spending time complaining or even just commenting about it on a forum for cyclists... just doesnt seem to make any sense to me......
Still, each to their own I suppose.... if thats how people want to spend their time
I think there's a difference, though - some people, myself - quite possibly you, would never enjoy something like Loose Women or other daytime TV programmes.
Whereas some, at least, didn't always hate Top Gear - in fact I don't hate it now - I used to enjoy it, and yes, post reboot. If I truly dislike anything, now, it's the cynical, pretend, controversial or edgy attempts at humour - not the daftness, or irreverence, or adolescent enjoyment of all things automobile.
For some it will be the decline - not that they've always hated it, or were never going to like it. There is a difference. That now it seems a game of brinkmanship in pandering to their demographic - which in tern, they probably have nothing but distaste for - and the need to ever up the ante in almost pantomime-esque bad-guy-ism, that has become too apparent, too much showing of the wires, and too revealing of that backdrop behind the facade, for me.
Whereas rewinding a few years, to a bit before they totally sold themselves on their own hype, and there's still quite a lot of the programmes from years gone by, I can still enjoy. Fortunately, there's no end of repeats of older episodes, so it's not all bad.
