Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Don't really know where to put this but it doesn't need a new thread. Went to B&Q in Aintree last week, and they've removed the self-service checkouts. Looking on Twitter, it appears they've done this in other locations too. Apparently it's because of too many people stealing. Went to B&Q l...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Thought that too. Charming comment.

Because Manchester is so underrepresented on television, isn’t it?

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Couldn’t help myself and got involved in the BBC rebrand thread.

Hey at least I waited this long, imagine how insufferable I’d have been if I wasn’t actively ignoring it for the past however many months.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Every time I venture into one of the mammoth BBC rebrand threads I find it immediately tedious and exhausting. Please spare me the essays complaining about people complaining about idents.

And while I’m here, what is it with people who are so wilfully ignorant? Google exists.

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

The people behind the "Vinted" app seem to have a budget that allows them to create a new advert virtually every week. Seems like there's an advert for each specific demographic they're trying to go after.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

The perils of unfocused megathreads like this is that, without much else to talk about, what were initially joke posts end up being discussed seriously (i.e. what if they renamed Radio 1 and 2 to Sounds 1 and 2 because of the current aggressive marketing of the awfully named "BBC Sounds" a...

Masks

It seems like more people than not are now not wearing masks in shops, public places etc. I'm still masking up, particularly as we get closer to winter. Are you?

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

A new thread called 'BBC World News Studio Refresh' when the only thing that's been announced is that the backdrop behind the presenters is changing is PEAK TV (Live) Forum. Wait till you see the ITV Be petition. It’s gotten to the point where I dread any new member joining… as it usually seems to ...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

I notice that AllWillBeWell's account - a verified/blue name member who robustly defended GB News - has been deleted. Hello, "who robustly defended GB News" I think that is a bit over the top and not really accurate. It was based on the fact that you posted in that thread really quite a l...
