I gave up on terrestrial a while ago, and Freeview promises much and delivers so very little. I was encouraged when ITV launched their new Play channel but I'd wrongly assumed that it was going to be dedicated to drama, but no, just another con trick to encourage people to waste money on telephone calls! Live entertainment is an expensive but necessary alternative to keep sane, and the cinema just isn't worth bothering with. A hundred and fifty years ago the Music Hall was state of the art entertainment and I'd rather we went back to that era than sit at home with all this expensive technologically like marvellous wide screen TVs which sit redundant in the corner of the living room hoping that one day you'll find something worth watching and actually switch the bloody thing on! Despite this television void filled with dross it doesn't prevent TV execs making obscene amounts of money. I've nothing against that but it would be nice if they discovered their self-respect and started earning it for a change!(Johnny Rico @ May 16 2006, 01:00 PM) Quoted post</div><div class='quotemain'>
ITV really has scraped the Barrel with "The Mint". They have stopped pretending they are a Broadcaster and are now nothing more than a Trickster with a Card Table on Oxford Street.
You can write them off after midnight. These 0901 manage to combine sleazy tactics with unwatchabilty.
What worries me is that i have channel hopped after 12 and I think another station is having one. It's like watching TV die in front of your eyes - Freeview is one thing , Terrestrial is another matter.
One Day we will wake up and the only paper available will be The Sun and the only thing on TV will be The Mint. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbdown.gif[/img]
OK possibly a little Rant but anyone else feel this way?
