The Ultimate Consumer Guide to Crap TV: Day + 7

I don’t really like TV at all. Apart from the odd amazing documentary, Derren Brown show or movie, I usually find it rather depressing, trashy, celebrity-worshipping and painfully unevolved. However, I don’t mean to sound like an arse and I do appreciate the ‘comfort quality’ of TV and its amazing time-killing powers when one hasn’t got the mental or physical strength to get through the day in a more creative and constructive way. In this spirit, I present The Ultimate Consumer Guide to Crap (British) TV or How to Numb Your Brain and Kill the Day when you are in Isolation, on Continual Drips, Can’t Speak and Want To Get ONE DAY Closer To Engraftment.

Time Channel Program Survival Tips
7:30 Channel 4 Friends Pretend you’ve never seen that episode
8:00 ITV1 GMTV Hard drugs
8:55 Channel 4 Will & Grace Think how recently homosexuality was taboo on TV. Still basically “oo-er missus” humour
9:25 Channel 4 Nikki Imagine how on earth a WHOLE TEAM of writers managed this. Or…
9:25 Five The Wright Stuff Marvel how people will ring in with absolutely nothing to say. Be grateful that we live in a country where things are up for discussion
10:00 Five House Doctor Promise yourself that your house will be beautiful (again)
10:30 Five Trisha You are on your own here. Absolutely vile.

2:00 Five Day-time old movie See how films can actually be made without 20 minutes of car-chase and explosion at the end e.g. a script. Or..
