Annoying things on TV
« on: September 14, 2021, 11:08:35 pm »
Anyone else annoyed by the music used on the 'can't be arsed to cook properly' Gousto TV advert?  I'm assuming it's all about microwaving stuff as the tune used is Enola Gay by OMD, which was about a plane of the same name that really annoyed a lot of people in Hiroshima.

I cancelled my TV licence 7 years ago and disconnected my TV from my satellite dish so nothing much annoys me. That has saved me enough money for a cheap holiday and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I'm not contributing to BBC/C4 nonsense. All sweetness and light in this household.

Load of old wazz. And, people being like sheep, fall for the hype. And don't get me started on the DJ who thinks she is an accomplished musician just because she can tap a few buttons in the correct order  :lol:

Ah, well, now, you see...erm...

The thing that annoys me is when they can't get the accompanying images right. I was watching a programme about American railways and they showed an image of a GWR pannier tank.

Bargain Hunt. Bloody thing always seems to be on when I settle down for my lunch. People buying absolute tat, then selling it at auction, usually for a loss; Irritating presenters. Having spent time in the USA, I have a huge aversion to adverts and only watch commercial TV programs I've recorded so I can wizz through the blessed things.

I dislike the way that science programmes (in particular) drag things out, beating about the bush in order to fill their allocated 60 minutes when they could have got to the grist of the matter in 20 or 30 minutes. Also thumbs up to Tony fS re ads.
