Seven Days With Nothing On TV
« on: June 05, 2010, 22:29 »
I've just looked at the Radio Times for the next seven days.  For the first time in my life there is absolutely nothing on any channel over the whole week that I fancy watching.  If only we could get refunds on our TV licences and satellite subscriptions when such a situation arises.
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

I rarely find anything I want to watch Gill.  Crimewatch, Watchdog, Top Gear and the news are the only things I would bother with if I had a free will.   :laugh:

Have to admit, even I'm only recording a couple of things next week, but I have about 300 hours of recorded material to catch up on, so I won't worry too much.  :)

Yes.  TV's getting worse and worse all the time.

With a bit of luck, we will be knocked out soon, and they won't bother showing the rest of it.  :devil:

I'll be catching up on other stuff I've recorded, but if England get to the semi-finals, I might watch the penalty shoot out at the end.  ;)

Like Simon, I'm getting through my backlog. A pay as you watch system would be much fairer, imo.

I'll have my iPod plugged into my lugholes and potter around .  There's loads to be done in the garden and the workshop at this time of year.
