Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Sadly, the corporate takeover of the UK’s creative sector is complete. It’s the same in radio. Everything is so bland and formatted these days. A previous poster said ‘nobody will notice or care’. That’s the problem. Perhaps they won’t but if you don’t try to create a magical escape on tv for your ...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Being told by another member that ITV casting Nigel Firage in I’m A Celebrity definitely isn’t an instance of stunt casting. Honest.

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

I remember nipping in when it just opened and had no idea it was a concept store - really didn’t like it. I appreciated what they were trying to do but if felt really quite gloomy and industrial - although that’s Preston in general - but I assume they were trying to give it a sort of cosy futuristic...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The whole “websnatchers” thing does my head in, to be honest. The forum policy where they’ll remove a link to any “known websnatcher” is quite ridiculous because 99% of the time it’s by people who’ve just typed in the video they want to link into youtube - there’s no malicious intent from the actual...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Reading that thread is becoming tedious work. No matter how you spin it, GB News were not well intentioned at all - the fact people are jumping to it’s defence as if it is the first time GB News has ever shown a glimpse of resentment towards the LGBTQ community is a little odd. No matter if he meant...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Thread seems to be repeating itself again and again a bit -I am all for a healthy debate but I think there needs to come a time where people stop interacting with someone who is clearly trying their hardest to be contrarian and is not listening to a word you say because they want to keep spluttering...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The highlight of yesterday evening was a user coming into the Lineker thread like a bull in a china shop and threatening to leave (as if the forum would crumble to pieces without their presence) because of how “uncomfortably political” the thread was… This looked extremely silly because the whole to...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The BBC-Lineker fiasco thread is bringing some odd ones out. Terrible takes being had - people jumping to the BBC’s defence either out of foolishness or stubbornness, others being like “THIS ISN’T NEWS!!!” for some bizarre reason, and i’ve also seen people fantasising about Gary joining GMB or being...

They’ll telepathically put that in their diary for next year.

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

You’re absolutely right. I’ve got a good example - I was actually looking for the thread on TVF about the 2004 C4 rebrand the other day, just to have a look back at what the reactions were on launch - because it’s arguably one of the best bits of TV pres we’ve ever seen, and because I saw people nat...

Re: The Telly Forum Watch News and Information Board

TV presentation is such a niche subject - there is literally no need for two forums. Pres Cafe has only just started flourishing with active users recently, do you think another random forum ran by a mystery randomer is going to work?
