- Things that just pass you by…
TV channels other than bbc2/3/4 C4/itv4/quest etc

i dont feel my life is worse off for not indulging in the above.Posted 4 years agoohnohesbackMember
I don’t watch the latest ‘reality’ series, the interminable yank mini series, or really care too much about the latest blockbusters. And I don’t feel as if I’m missing out. Lost, Breaking Bad, Twerking… What are these things?
Does anyone else feel the same way? And what else in life do you let pass you by?Posted 4 years agofrankiMember
I can’t be bothered with much TV, especially anything from the US that runs for about a million episodes per series.Posted 4 years ago
Not seen Game Of Thrones, Breaking Bad or any of that stuff, I’ve only got Freeview as I’m not willing to pay for more TV I won’t watch.
About the only channel I don’t have that I’d like is Eurosport for the endless live cycling, but ITV4 shows a fair bit now.hjghg5Member
I pretty much don’t watch tv. When it’s on it’s usually the Simpsons (OH watching as I get in from work), cycling on Eurosport or rugby league on sky. Or we’re listening to 6 music through the telly.
I don’t really do films either. Or celebrities. Or fashion.
I’d actually be happy 99% of the time with just a radio as I much prefer listening to stuff than watching – on training courses I find I take it in easier if I shut my eyes and listen rather than trying to read slides.Posted 4 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
Paintball – only ever did this with mates who booked the whole thing so just a laugh really, then went to a stag do down near B’Ham and we “joined in” couldn’t beleive grown men with paint grenades and all the camo stuff. I gave up playing sodjers when I was about 10.
Radio 1 and all it represents, don’t even know who is on these days.Posted 4 years ago
F1 used to know all there was, now couldn’t give a monkeys
Slebs saw a trailer for some BigDancingJungle thing didn’t know who anyone was. Felt quite smug about it too!stumpy01Member
Reality stuff like TOWIE & Geordie Shore
TV series that everyone seems to talk about like Prison break, The Wire etc. I don’t know how people find time to watch so much TV & get stuff done
Fashion trends – I wear what I like, rather than the latest must have look that would have been ridiculed a year ago and will be ridiculed in a years time.
Keeping up with the Joneses, with respect to ‘stuff’. New cars, big TVs, iPads etc. I’d rather spend the money on bike stuff and paying off the mortgage early.Posted 4 years agoTerry WristMember
Radio 4 programs. Tried listening, just boring posh folk bollocking on about how you should use grammar. With birds tweeting in the background.
Radio 2, I’m nearly 40 but will never be old enough to like the music they play.
Tennis, I must have been the only person I know who went out when McTimmy won Wimbledon.Posted 4 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
