wife loves to watch trash tv
Does anybody else have a partner with totally opposite tastes in tv viewing? My wife loves x-factor, strictly, I’m a celeb, soaps etc etc whereas I cannot understand why anybody would want to watch such crap? Unfortunately I have a 8 year old son with similar tastes so usually get out voted. I think a second tv may be in order (or a new wife :D)Posted 5 years agobreakneckspeedMember
While the ‘girls’ may watch these programs I choose to do something more useful instead – Personally I find this programs ethically and morally disturbing – I find nothing entertaining in the cynical humiliation of desperate people – once religion was the opium of the people – now its reality televisionPosted 5 years agoigrfMember

Why do you think I spend so much time on here.
Not only the bread knife with her East Enders, Strictly Come Prancing, Holby City, there are the various daughters of darkness, with the Kardashians, <Insert approproate country>’s top model, and assorted other girlie crap, it’s a wonder I get to watch anything brutal with gratuitous violence.Posted 5 years agouser-removedMember
Lol @ JCL.
I’m quite lucky – it’s just Enders and Holby in chez-removed. We have a special arrangement here; the telly may be switched off and decent music put on if I’ll play Scrabble which is Mrs Removed’s favourite game.
I quite like Scrabble but it’s a secret. Sssshhhh.Posted 5 years agotimidwheelerSubscriber
My boyfriend loves crap reality TV. Usually it’s something about man doing a boring job that involves wearing a workman’s helmet of some sort. They try to make it exciting by using dramatic music and the word could. “If Ratzenburger isn’t really careful he COULD crash his giant boat into the giant port.” Obviously he does this every day and it’s his job but it COULD end in disaster (it doesn’t).
Don’t get me started on Grand Designs. Rich people whining about how terrible their life is because their Swedish handcrafted windows have been delayed by two days and they have to stay in the three bed outbuilding.
How do they do that? Who gives a monkey’s?? Let’s watch some vintage kids TV footage while the world’s dullest voice over man talks us though how to make a zip.
How about an hour long documentary on vintage firearms?
I hate Quest.Posted 5 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
Yep, Mrs Coolhandluke loves shit TV too and I thought it was only me that had to suffer the crap tv offerings.
Friday night is worse IMO, with seemingly endless soaps on from about 7 until 10? Emmerdale, Corro, Eastenders, more soddin Corro ahhhh
At one point last Friday Mrs Coolhandluke complained that I’d been away working for two weeks and all I was doing was using the IPad instead of talking to her. Of course, this was during an advertisement break otherwise she wouldn’t have been talking at all.
I think she needs help.Posted 5 years agospooky_b329Member
The only thing my wife and I actually want to watch together is Grand Designs.
I will put up with a couple of soaps she likes, but I am banned from watching anything on Discovery whilst she is present because ‘its boring’. If Strictly or any thing on the Horse and Country channel is on the box I will leave them room (or bring the laptop to the sofa if I’m getting the ‘spend some time with me’ calls from the lounge)Posted 5 years agojota180Member

Pretty much the same here but it doesn’t bother me too much
She was rather pissed off yesterday afternoon though to find out a documentary I was watching about Richard Nixon was 3 hours long, so was I really but I thought I’d stick it out for the fun of it 🙂Posted 5 years ago
In the end she went and sat on a stool in the kitchen watching something else.
