    I read the title of the programme so, no, I didn't.

    I sincerely hope not.
     
  5. Ooo, with a programme title like that I would've been on it like flies on... you know.
    As it is, I've obviously missed this little gem.
    So what channel's it on???

    It's John Logie Baird spinning....

    Of couse I would expect no less from you astute lot!
    ((Channel 4 for those who want to watch it in the closet - I actually cringed for he first 20mins and then was fascinated. I think I do know girls like these - some of them in full outfit for picking up the kids from school. What is really worrying is that younger girls are beginning to imitate them. And then I got to thinking perhaps I was one of these girls in the sixties with my false eyelashes, mini-skirts and big hair OMG!!!!! Mind you we didnt have the money these girls seem to have, we shared a Carlesberg Special not a bottle of bubbly- nor the 'posh' places to hang out - Uglies, The Babaloo and The Triton on a Friday night just don't come close HA! HA! HA! - you would know what I was laughing at if you were there too [​IMG]))

    It is staged and scripted just like "Essex" and "Chelsea".
    More like desperate television (daughter is watching the original "desperate housewives" which is incomprehensible cack, obviously plotted by high school kids.

    I couldn't drag myself away from it. When they watch it back, do you think they are embarrassed?

    They will be more concerned with how they look not what they have said or how they have acted.
    I've never watched 'Essex or Chelsea' so I have nothing to compare it to.
     
  11. I will confess to being a huge fan of 'Made in Chelsea' - much to the disappointment and annoyance of the rest of the family. Now I only watch it on catch-up TV on a Saturday morning when there is noone else around!
    'Desperate Scousewives' is on E4. Apparently it had really good viewing figures (for E4) but is taking a lot of flack. The Liverpool Echo reviewer doesn't seem too unhappy with it though.
     
  12. Me too.
    I have some dreadful tv choices. :)
     
  13. I'm so glad it's not just me! [​IMG]
    E4 is fantastic for truly awful television that I just have to watch, although it does have some true gems like Misfits, Skins and The Inbetweeners. Another series that I really loved was 'Great British Hairdresser' and I don't know a single soul who had heard of it let alone watched it!

    My friend's son is the barman in the 'cocktail bar scene' and me and my friend were in there the previous week chatting to him 'cos he is the bar manager and we got a free drinkiepoo - lovely boy'!!!!!!!!!!
    (I can hear you all saying 'sad, sad, sad' but hey any tentative tenticle to fame is worth mentioning don't you think?)

    Love it!
    Not as much as Essex or Chelsea,
    Have to be honest, really not sure about the 'Scouse brow'........
     
  17. I wouldn't watch the others but I love Made in Chelsea.
    If the 'Italian' boy and the boy with long hair behave that way in public, they must get things thrown at them on a daily basis.
