The proliferation of emoticons in that post does lend some credence to Brendan's witterings...

Don't waste your time getting an education. I can't recommend it. Get training instead.

I can't disagree with that. A whisker off forty and working alongside people half my age for the same salary who are straight out of school, and having to do another qualification because the one I did originally was so utterly worthless.

Bah.

Cheer up everybody. Sure we're all going to hell in a hand cart but I'm carrying a pitchfork.

As for ITV well anybody who commisioned Heartbeat had it fucking coming to 'em.

ITV? I never watch it. Wouldn't miss it if it stopped broadcasting altogether. Seems like they've had their comeuppance for courting an audience of plebs. Your audience won't respect you for talking down to them, and the advertisers won't bite if all your channel can sell is Iceland prawns advertised by Kerry Catona.

I can't remember the last time I watched TV full stop. There again, I am in Wales and electricity is still a bit scary...

I just found out that Home Of The Underdogs no longer exists in any form.

Is now a good time to point out that ITV pays my wages, and I'm lucky enough to be in a state where that situation will continue for the time being?

Without wanting to sound like a company puppet, I would point out that the current state of affairs isn't solely a result of the company's strategy (not that there haven't been a few howlers, but I won't dwell on those either) but also due to the fact that commercial telly as a whole is in the crapper - see Five's job cuts today, Channel4's dire straits, etc.

Anyway, there may be some right garbage goes out on ITV channels, but there's also plenty of creative and talented folk who are (or were) on payroll and who've made some astonishing stuff over the years and still do. I won't go into the rest of the situation 'cause it's what I spend my working days worrying about, but believe me when I say you'll miss it when it's gone.

In fact, if you all wanted to do your ol' chum Sam a favour, why not watch ITV then go buy the first product you see advertised?
Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

We know, Samuel-A. I don't think anybody actually wants ITV to snuff it, nor for you to be out of a job. It's more a feeling of 'what has ITV done for us lately?' God knows the BBC is like a great big bloody leech draining a regressive tax off us all while competing with the commercial stations in the race to the bottom of the barrel as far as standards of taste and quality go, whereas ITV offers free entertainment, should one wish to take it.

If we hate the BBC it's for the fact it doesn't appear to offer anything worth the licence fee: i.e. different content to what the other channels offer. In other words, for being too much like ITV and having the cheek to charge us for it.

At the moment I spend more hours watching the same looped sitcoms on Paramount Comedy 1 than I do watching any other channel. And then my second most watched channel is BBC3. These days I seem to watch Channel 4 and BBC1 for news and nothing else.

Anyway 'life spugs because of... hubris.'
STRIKE !!!
