    Tv is carp. Don't watch it anymore.

    And too much time taken up by adverts. I'd sooner watch an episode of the wood whisperer on u tube.

    You're right...most of it is carp but there are still some decent programmes on channels like Quest and ITV4.

    Some Poles may feel aggrieved that we repaid them by leaving them at the mercy of Stalin after the war. Can't say I'd blame them.

    Who do I blame for our sick society?

    Lenient, out of touch judges.
    Soft, five-star prisons.
    Do gooders.
    Social workers.
    Namby pamby parents.
    Lefty liberal teachers.
    Government laws against smacking.

    I could go on, but you get the picture.

    Are any of these likely to change?
    Of course not. We're stuck with our sick society.

    More choice seems to have meant more filler?

    I agree.
    It seems to me that commercial breaks are not only longer, but also more frequent than they used to be.
    As I understand it, the TV companies get around the legal limitations by including far more leaders for upcoming programmes which, of course, are not commercial adverts. This means that they don't need to pay for as much programme time.

    Then, of course, there has been an explosion of additional commercial channels. This has resulted in a severe dilution of, not only income from advertising revenue, but also talent. No wonder so many programmes these days are crap.
