Beeb opinions on light entertainment !


Recommended Posts

Their remit is essentially 'make something for everyone'.

 

Unfortunately, that means any given person will think 87% of their content is utter garbage, because they are not the demographic for that particular content.  And there is no 'algorithm' making sure you aren't presented with that content, like there is on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

 

Lots of people clearly LIKE unthreatening shows about baking or sewing or ballroom dancing or whatever.  The likes of Netflix even keep buying those shows from the BBC.

You forgot panel shows.

 

All of which seem to feature pretty much the same set of panelists.

At some point someone at the Beeb noticed that gameshows = having to pay out big cash prizes, but panel shows/celebrity versions just mean you have to pay a smaller appearance fee of however much David Mitchell gets out of bed for these days, plus maybe a token amount to charity.

People who moan about the licence fee do my HEAD in


It's amazing value for money

 

Watch what you want
Listen to what you want

Download the podcasts of what you want


But SHUT THE FOOOOOK UP about the licence fee ffs

It's nothing to do with the fee. It's about not having an option to opt out the licence being applied for having a TV. BBC licencing should be for the service with an option to opt in or out. 

 

It is impossible to opt out of Beeb services.

I now give you the foo kin two Boat Races. Does anyone give a flying F who wins a race two sets of over privileged mix of Yanks, Ausies, Canadians and home grown Wet Bods. Just gets right up your nose.  

But that’s where their sports coverage went - it’s abysmal now, Wimbledon and the snooker at the crucible. They even lost the golf open and the horse racing (which they used to have all the big races)
 

oh, but they have womens footy - don’t get me started on that
