TA'd about when you sit down to watch a programme on linear tv.

The first 2 minutes is a preview/montage of what you are going to see in the next hour (especially for documentaries but even for crime programmes).

I kinda know why they do it (to try to capture viewers attention) but it ruins any suspense and is effectively cheap padding to make the programmes (especially 30 minute) seem more substantial.


Its such a treat when you watch something off a DVD/streaming where you don't have the preview or can skip over it

A review of last week's sh1te.
A synopsis of what you are going to see.
The actual content, usually overly repetitive.
A round up of what you have seen.
What you are going to see after the ad break.
Ad break.
A round up of what you saw in the last part.
A preview of what you are about to see.
The repetitive content.
A round up of what you have just watched.
A preview of what will come after the break.
Ad break.
Rinse repeat.

Does anyone remember these?



Well, I've been hearing a sound like the alarm from one of these from down the street at odd hours for some time now, waking me up. Seems to be some sort of bird and the sun rising earlier means the fecker is doing his alarm routine earlier as well. Sod.

The Casio F-91W was “favoured” by Al-Qaeda terrorists’ bomb makers.

Best not to be wearing one if travelling in the States.

Ronan Keating "hints that Storm has gone into labour". Last week he "had the virus". Would you ever just f*ck off. We are in the middle of a pandemic. Nobody cares about your wife going into labour. I normally welcome non-covid news as a distraction but I would actually rather read about the world's end than read about him and his wife and their reproductive status.
Take your own advice as they say - you say it best when you say nothing at all.
