It seems to consist entirely of people's guesses about who the singers are, and how supposedly obvious it is who they are, rather than any discussion about the actual production of the show and the presentation.
That’s kind of the point of it though.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

Yes reading other people's guesses, ideas and workings out is all part of it and adds to the enjoyment. Thinking the Dragon was Courtney Act for weeks and then suddenly not being able to hear anyone but Sue Perkins during the performance last night because I'd read someone guessing her on TV Forum was a revelation.

I appreciate that's it's not a very TV Forum thread though.

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 that and reading the GB News thread, I think I’d prefer the Masked Singer thread

The last 30 mins or so of 'analysis' of Captain Tom Moore's death on the Covid 19 news thread was nothing short of disgusting.

It takes a lot for me to be offended, but some of the absolute tripe being posted was easily my lowest point of reading TVF in nearly 20 years of being a member.

Indeed, there's a time and a place for certain discussions - and some people just don't know when to shut up.

The worst comment was AlexS saying his death was “self-inflicted” because of his holiday in Barbados. Unsurprisingly they’ve been banned.
Read the above post carefully, or there will be consequences.

Yes that one stuck out. The overall analysis of his recent events minutes after his death was announced was in poor taste.

I see that Truthfinder has been banned. I know their predictions on The Masked Singer were outlandish but not ban worthy!

He created a second thread with 'Leaks' from the Masked Singer without a spolier tag. Maybe that's why.

While it was certainly too soon, and while TVF was certainly not the place for it, I have seen a number of people online with similar posts when he was admitted to hospital and over the last day.
