When Saturday night tele was good!

Post by Violet » Sat Oct 22, 2005 4:49 pm

I remember when I was little, loves sitting in watching tv with my dad on saturday nights! Blind date, You Bet, Gladiators etc! All cheesy stuff but so much better than what's on now. There was always a good film on too, an Arnie one or sommat. Now it's all rubbish apart from the odd good film. Itv's especially poop.

Challenge TV is repeating the Retro Gameshows. Does remind me of Saturday nights of old.

Tv stations no longer have a captive audence like the days when there was only 4 cannels where you had to like it or lump it,now with all the satellite channels out there all the good shows are spread out across them,may I add satellite channels I cannot recive in my area but I still have to fund with the licence fee :x but thats a rant for another day.
With the need to fund all these extra programmes to fill these stations its all to easy to make dirt cheap reality tv programmes to fill the schedules and show reapeats on an endless spool.

I only have the 5 channels to watch, I don't have cable or anything. It's a good excuse to go out to the pub :P

I forgot to add,most commercial channels especially itv dont seem to give a flying fig about the quality of programmes,there just intrested in how much they can charge for advertising in between shows.

Slightly off topic but whilst im having a moan,an episode of lost is 40 minutes long so thats 25 minutes spent sitting throgh adverts. :roll:

5 Channels!!!thats better than 4 im stuck with.

I cant recive freeveiw because caldy hill is in the way,cant get cable in my area,and to fit a sky dish on my flat would mean a lot of wrangleing with the agents that look after the building.

I can get all the welsh channels but pobol y cwm and welsh choirs are not really my cup of tea.

No wonder I hardly watch it anymore,I just go out or bug you lot on the internet all night. :)
