Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?

I can never find anything on Netflix I want to watch, so it's gone in the bin. The signal to noise ratio is ridiculous. It might even have good stuff, but it's such a faff to find that I'll just teef the odd show as and when someone recommends it to me. Disney+ is worth it and this thread has remind...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The new logo looks like someone in mock designs recreated the old one from memory with bad padding and Calibri instead of Gill Sans, so I don’t know why people are in a rush for it to change.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

This reminds me that Jelly Belly used to have their own pick and mix concessions in Sainsbury's.

They disappeared, possibly because certain people kept putting premium jelly beans into the crappo pick and mix bags.

No, because nobody can get those into the bags.

They do sometimes sell fruit out the front though, so you wouldn’t leave disappointed.

Re: The rise of the dodgy shop

What about those makeshift launderettes, which are just an unstaffed former fish bar with a couple of coin-ops plonked inside.

I guess CeX might also be seen as a dodgy shop that has taken over every high street but I always manage to find some tat I like in there.

Re: Media Talk Forum Watch News and Information Board

This is a cracking website but I have some constructive questions and feedback: The logo is fantastic but I am concerned that the font is a little too serious. Perhaps you could consider something a little more jovial to reflect the light-hearted moderation policy? I am unable to comment on the foru...

Re: Media Talk Forum Watch News and Information Board

I would suggest the addition of a subforum for general unrelated discussion as that is something that is very popular on niche websites.

I stand corrected. Must have hallucinated them backtracking on that!

Re: How much would the licence fee have to rise before you would cancel it?

I don't watch any TV anymore - not even occasionally. I do use streaming services, and I have bought quite a bit of BBC content outright (mostly old comedy shows which I rewatch).
