    Car Crash Television..

     Posted in Anger Level 4 & The Arts at 20:25 on Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008 by Mr. Rant

    I think the reason behind the popularity of certain programmes on television is justified by the above statement, it’s been developing for sometime and over Christmas it’s twenty-thousand times worse than ever.  Christmas T.V used to be for me; a thing of magic and pure entertainment, but these days that seems to have dwindled down to a hotch-potch of light-entertainment and pure dross.

    X-Factor – this doesn’t really need summing up it’s really not my cup of tea, it’s car crash television at it’s best, well it’s not quite the pinnacle of disgust that trophy is loftily held by I’m a celebrity get me out of here.  Consisting of nothing but a group of mindless z-Listers partaking in a popularity contest.

    I mean who really wants to see some Muppet prancing around wearing shorts and a vest, at 3am in the morning because they’re scared of being attacked by a rouge mouse?  It would seem that the majority of the population would, I’m not usually a violent person but if you’re into these mindless programmes you really should be strung up by your eyebrows and whipped with a leek, preferably with some cheese sauce on top of tip of it.  That would be a good punishment.

    But alas this cannot be, it seems that there’s an inherent attraction to these programmes and this doesn’t look likely to change, if I had my way it would.  When I come to power; I’m going to outlaw these programmes and replace them instead with a live televised showing of people being whipped with leeks and cheese.

    This would seem to be a fettish of mine.
