Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Oh I know. I mean, there's always been a flair for the dramatic but some of the recent examples are just ridiculous. If an animated DOG is 1 on the TV Live Forum drama scale and Andy Murray barging the BBC1 schedule out of the way is 10, we're definitely now at the catastrophic cancellation of Look...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Seems to be a lot of catastrophising over really insignificant things over there at the moment. I mean, yeah I know there’s always been a bit of that but it’s never gone so far into calling broadcasters incompetent because a clock hasn’t appeared or a picture in listings that nobody ever reads hasn’...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

It’s not a “fun debate”. It’s important. We live in era of “fake news” and some people herein cannot be bothered to think before they post or do a little bit of research. I can’t quite believe I’m saying this but Google it. Search for “BBC” and search for “difference between corporation and company...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Can somebody clear up for me just how we have a “failing test and trace system that’s not fit for purpose” whilst simultaneously having a huge number of people being told to isolate right now. Surely both those things can’t be true. I’m not really sure why test and trace is being undermined so much...

I think you’ll find the word is wibble.

Re: Spammy spam spam

I was given a work phone last year and it’s been a revelation. It’s so nice to leave it at home on my day off and not get disturbed when I’m out, when previously I was forever getting calls and emails coming through to my own phone. I strongly object to work worming its way into home life unless it’...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

The thing is the original thread had a bit of a purpose and was related to the news Eggheads had jumped ship to Channel 5 and it had kind of run its course as there is only finite amount of shows it applies to. Whereas the thread on TVLF seems to be just for the sake of it with the OP not even addi...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

I thought rota talk was dull, but the tv shows that moved channel thread is next level tedium. Thread on old site had 121 replies so it can go on for a while. Luckily you can ignore. I think moaning about people talking about what they find interesting even more tedious. But it’s not interesting. I...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

I think 'bobbins' is perfect to be honest. In 20 years, when the BBC updates the font again to 'Birt' or 'Dyke' there will doubtless be folks who question why they are changing from such a 'timeless font'. And as for ascribing subjective qualities such as 'gravitas' and 'class' - I'm sorry, but tha...
