Well it is for a good cause I suppose

But...
However, does anybody on the BBC show "Lets dance for Comic Relief" seem to you (no names as it might be libellous) that they might be a bit the worse for drink?

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Think you'd have to be wouldn't you?
Comic Relief evening is great but why all the other stuff?
People should just give some money as it does do a lot to help people in UK as well as overseas.

Personally I find all these dancing/talent shows nauseating.

Deny all you want Mal, we know you do really  Cheesy
As for John Sargeant, think he should have stuck to political reporting as he was obviously better at it judging by that over used clip showing him dragging that poor woman along the floor.

I'll be glad when the public get bored with all these cheap tv 'real' life & talentless shows......and who hell actually phones in?

Re: Well it is for a good cause I suppose

Well, skippyonspeed, you've pre-empted another question I was going to ask: Do you KNOW anyone in your circle of friends, work colleagues, family etc. who has actually phoned in to vote on one of these shows?
I don't. (or at least admitted to it)

Re: Well it is for a good cause I suppose

I don't know anyone who has voted, at least that will admit it.
I cannot see what the entertainment value of these programmes is. I didn't watch the programme in question but I did see Jo Brand dancing like Brittany Spears.
What the hell is that all about, on the BBC?

Re: Well it is for a good cause I suppose

Uhmm! one can imagine a vast army of "board-men" prompts behind the cameras telling the audience when to cheer and scream or hold up pre-prepared posters, otherwise they might not know. Just occasionally you can see this happening from the gormless expressions of the audience nearest the camera who suddenly burst into life "on cue"
I really cannot get on with the mindless screaming that goes on in these shows, currently, by far the worst in this respect is "Dancing on Ice" where the presenters/"judges" are constantly drowned out (maybe thats not such a bad thing though!) And why is such a drama made of the breaks coming up, when most can see the count-down marker in the top right of the screen, rounded corner screens (where it might be hidden) must be pretty thin on the ground nowadays. And, why are there so many breaks anyway on D on I?
And since I'm complaining about Dancing on Ice, why has nobody (of a female persuasion) complained about the sexist film clips shown before and after the breaks that show ONLY female skaters falling over, does this mean that male skaters never fall?
Why do I observe so much about D on I...SWMBO likes it...
As reality shows go, the only one I like to watch occasionally that seems to put the contestants throughly through the mill with very little sympathy is Masterchef. However, I do realise at the end of the day (sorry for that) it is still an entertainment show.

Re: Well it is for a good cause I suppose

Some people just like complaining !... Shocked Cheesy..
When we went to run a tearoom for someone for a short while, we were advised by the owners (with photographs) about the "professional complainers" who came in, and found the smallest thing wrong with the food or drink, sufficient to cause a riot, and expect to be "publicly re-imbursed" with either a double cash refund or a free meal, before they would sit down and shut up, or leave......
Fortuantely, I only had to deal with one of them, it could have turned nasty, until I spoke very loudly for all to hear that they were "professional complainers"...and I used the last seven words above, which made them do just that ..... !
