Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I could have bet my savings on when that BBC social media rules thread started, which member or members would have been the ones to wade in and dominate proceedings

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

No offence but seeing a load of English/Scottish/Welsh people continually talk about the 'best' name for UTV in the UTV thread , whilst they think they're being 'sensitive' about Northern Ireland is disheartening. It's white people talking about racism all over again! That discussion line seems to ...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

I like it in a weird way. I don’t think he’s insufferable, I think he’s quite endearing. You’re just a bunch of miserable sods 😂 The character is really annoying in the follow up advert, so I think this confirms Asda have done it deliberately to generate chat about how bad they are, rather than the...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I think we are still a long way away from any leading politician, of any party, who is seen as mainstream and not a back bench nutjob, not supporting restrictions and suggesting there should be fewer. We know that if anything Labour in Wales and the SNP actually support further measures, and Labour ...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Pret skews middle class London based journalists pretty highly. See also the way every journalist spoke about Greggs sausage rolls as if they were from another planet, the last time they were in the news. Yes if they wanted to be less London centric they’d focus on Greggs rather than Pret, and prob...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

M&S rail station stores have been closed until a couple of weeks ago. I’m guessing on the same basis, but I’d have thought in the last couple of months there’d be enough traffic to survive... are they M&S or a franchisee tho? They are most likely to be SSP franchises and will still have bee...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I’ve never quite understood why Loose Women seems so popular on TVF. I’m guessing it’s because with 4 members of the panel every day, it generates lots of rota combinations.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Every single thread remotely about BBC News has been like that for a while now, there is about 4 or 5 threads, a few posters treat them like chat rooms, where the discussion just keeps going in circles, predicting who will be presenting today, and how great it was to see presenter A and how they sho...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The BBC News thread which is basically a chat room now where the chat just keeps flowing constantly, has today spent 3 pages debating the exact wording of the opening line at the top of the hour, and how they apparently differ depending on what hour it is.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I know any thread related to BBC News is now dominated by a few posters who could literally talk about nothing all day Huw Edwards does the Six, - ten posts generated about how great it is he's been given the chance, questions about where the usual host is and the fact that as they have a husband an...
