Were the TVS archive jokes ever funny?
I feel like I missed the beginning of it and now I have no idea what they’re on about.
Someone (Riaz?) wanted to know where it was, and was sure the forum knew. So people started dropping hints that they did know and he lapped them up. After going quiet, every time someone mentioned the TVS archive, he'd pop up wanting to know more about its location. Basically the joke is a very long drawn out troll of one person who doesn't believe nobody has an answer.

The BBC Three returns as a TV channel thread took an impressively short amount of time to descend into fantasy TV channel/schedule hell.

As soon as it was suggested that BBC One should reduce to broadcasting about 7 hours a day, I was out.

Froth levels are pretty unbearable on there.

There was some twat who kept starting threads, all of which had the same crux - 'there's no evidence the TVS archive is lost, help me prove my own theory'. That user attempted to stir people in to action by massively overstating the cultural importance of the like of Motormouth and All Clued Up.

It was pretty funny for a bit.

I’d say “at least it’s not as bad as Oneness” used as a punchline in every thread stopped being funny a while back as well.

And now we're onto suggestions of Adult Swim and Love Island being moved to BBC3.... 🤦‍♂️

Funny how BM11 got banned just before one of his world catastrophe fantasies came true.

Can anyone remember where this gem from 623058 came from? This was my signature on TVF for a while but I cannot remember which thread it was from.

'623058 The whole thing has been a dump squirt'

For someone who acts like an authority on television, JKDerry seems to struggle to understand why ITV don't own the TV shows that were made by Thames.

I'd trust his knowledge of tv studios in the UK and Ireland for their size, but that's about all! Otherwise it's a hard slog.
