O/T Shit telly programs that girls like

Postby Man Called Sun » Sun Oct 09, 2011 8:17 pm

Having seen a couple of references this evening to the X-Abomination etc, I thought it best that we have a whiole thread to vent our spleen about such shite that everyone seems to be forced to sit through.

Case in point, as we speak my mrs is on the phone to her mother while simultaneously watching Downton Abbey. Fucking absolute bollocks, ridden with period inaccuracies that the historian in me can't ignore.

And this comes hot on the coat tails of Strictly Come Fucking About In Stupid Costumes.

You let your misses have a say when choosing what you watch?

Freak, give her a really good boot in the cunt if she starts having ideas above her domestic duties.

If my missus has some old crap on the TV I just walk out and doing something I want or watch my choice of programme on my TV!

I had this problem a while back. The Boss thought it would be "a nice bonding experience" if we watched a bit of telly together a couple of nights a week. Fair enough, but I drew the line at reality TV, she agreed and insisted on no footie or sport of any kind, a drama or film would be perfect.
Deal!
You choose one, I'll choose one.
She chose the usual, Jane Austen, Bridget Jones ....
I chose The Wire and The Sopranos. She lasted a week.
I am holding Game of Thrones as my ace in the hole in case she wants to try again.

Comes down to compromise, I guess.

We have a standing agreement that the TV is not to be tuned to Come Dine With Me whilst I'm in the same postcode, and not Deal Or No Deal whilst I'm on the same fucking planet.

Other shit I just have to let ride.

Why is there a historian in you, and why are you resorting to gay sex just because she's ignoring you? Id call that a win..( er the her ignoring you bit I mean) :scratch:

X Factor
Keeping up with the Kardashians
Katie and Peter
Teen Mom
16 and pregnant
etc etc

Fucking diabolical shit. I would add the soaps to that but I can generally put up with them (Emmerdale is actually a guilty pleasure of mine). In fact, the mrs gets a lot more telly time than I do. And she has the nerve to complain when I want to have a quick blast on the PS3 or watch footy on Sunday afternoon!

I should contextualise this in that I'd spent the whole day playing Zelda while she was up the chimney with a hand brush. I thought I should give her a break.

I shouldn't have let that one slip out shouldn't I?

We have got common ground in South Park and QI though, thank Christ.

not that bothered what she watches. With the invention of Sky+ u can both get your fair share of TV time. Despite this weekend lack of footy I still got a decent weekends viewing in:

England footy
F1
Idiot Abroad
Rugby WC
Rugby GF
Golf

and r lass watched her shitty factor, dancing and big brother bollcoks in between at which time i generally just go on the internet (Sky GO) for a bit more golf or whatever footy is on, quite like the bundesliga or MLS on ESPN and La Liga on SS Saturday/Sunday Nights.

Sky TV is fucking brilliant!

Know what you're saying, but I accidentally happened across Made In Chelsea t'other week. Stuff like that is such a surreal freak show it becomes almost mesmeric. It's sort of like a real-life Hieronymus Bosch.

Anyhow, not having Sky or Freeview I take some comfort in the fact I've not even heard of three of your list. What are Kardashians?

Well...how to decribe it? It's basically a reality show about a family of wealthy hispanic looking women and their mother, going around doing modelling shoots and generally living their celebrity life. Like an American version of Katie and Peter, if you know what I mean? Famous for being famous and that.

I believe daddy Kardashian was one of OJ Simpsons legal team back in the day, but he's dead now, so randomly the mother is now shacked up with former olympic athlete Bruce Jenner.

That really is pretty much it.

On the flipside of the shit telly spectrum, anybody watch Pointless on BBC1 (weekdays 5.15pm)? Bloody good that is.

Yep. Top show is that, and the banter between the presenter (forget his name) and the statto cunt (forget his name too) is TV gold! Think it's repeating on Challenge too.

No, ludicrous would be entertaining. It's just very :|

I've ceded control of the telly and just watch everything I want to online in my cave. Saves having to make conversation.
