Occasionally I catch a glimpse of television when visiting people. Sooooo glad I got rid of it.

FYI, over here it's all cooking shows.


I'm not exactly a dyed-in-the-wool "foodie" but do enjoy cooking and appreciate good food....yet oddly the glut of cookery shows - voting based or not - leaves me cold and I never bother with them. More likely to be found watching food-related documentary/pop-science stuff from the likes of Stefan Gates or the Food Unwrapped team.

My pal and I have "Strictly Gone Biking" every Saturday at 6 with our sons...
...seems an ideal arrangement.

Give me Strictly over inane repeats of Tracy bloody Beaker and the bloomin Simpson's, kids TV is not what it used to be. But reality TV is pretty sh*t

It's us. TV is aimed at all women, young men and old men. Middle-aged men (or those approaching it) just aren't catered for.
These shows are nothing new, As a kid in the eighties TV then was really no different, still lots of cooking, gameshows, Come Dancing and reality crap like Opportunity Knocks. And, Michael bloddy Barrymore was on screen at least once a week with a crap gameshow or "My Kinda People".
At least now we are getting shed loads of quality drama.

I remember those days only too well - Strike It Lucky was the chief culprit on the gameshow front, although that was in the days before something fell spectacularly out of Barrymore's career....top, middle or bottom? ;)

I despise game shows of all kinds and practically all quiz shows other than QI, Have I Got News For You and Mock The week

I have a wood burner, cold beer, internet connection and a smelly dog right here in the kitchen. It's cozy and all the ladies have a wood burner and a TV in the TV room, where they live without dad making "dad noises".

Get some odd glances when I wear my Alien Workshop T-shirt. Even the odd snide remark from the cross-on-a-chain set. Telling them I'm gonna have my imaginary friend beat up their imaginary friend usually quiets them down.
