Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I'd like to be able to talk about GB News but Christ, I know if I was Asa I couldn't be arsed spending my personal time having to trawl through a particularly charged thread and deciding what needs to go. The rest of the forum generally only requires gentle moderation (well, I assume that's the cas...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The Masked Singer is as close to a DS tv show thread we've had for a while. If there was actually some production based discussion I might read it more, but I'm not interested in it as a tv show where people guess which minor celeb is dressed up as a chicken or whatever. If it’s a choice between th...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The only time I ever went to Debenhams in its later years was to look round its incredibly expensive Christmas gifting range, and see what they had in that year that was less than half the price in Tesco's seasonal range.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

One simple question though - is there any point for you at which you will consider the long term effect of the attempt to fight the virus and whether it will all have been worth it? Do you in any way worry what the post-Covid world will be like and whether the cost to achieve it was too great? And ...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

No I'm talking about the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-1920 which infected a third of the world's population and killed 50 million people in two years. In which case you missed out the Swine Flu pandemic, the HIV/AIDS pandemic (ongoing), the Seventh Cholera pandemic, the so-called Asian Flu pandemic...

It was far deadlier than Covid is ever likely to be yet it is barely a footnote in history because it was never allowed to become the obsession that Covid has. Are you talking about Swine Flu?

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The annual TV predictions thread... I know there's usually a lot of fantasy around but is it just me or is some of this years lunacy and wishful thinking off the charts? They always seem to be either predictions of things that are known to be happening, or completely outlandish guesses. And then th...
