Thread Name: BS: No Telly?
Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
I have many, but watch very little. CSI, and news. Sometimes Dr Who or Torchwood. Why is there such shit on? Where are the equivalents of Doomwatch, the Quatermass programmes, I Claudius, Frankie Howerd (I always hated Tony Hancock) etc. Why are there NO decent music programmes - one used to be able to see Pink Floyd etc on Top of the Pops? Why are even the history and archaeology programmes so simplistic? Even the natural history programmes are largely about animals fucking or tearing each other to pieces. Why is the news dumbed down to 10 second sound-bites?

Please please give us an apocalypse. Mankind is sinking into something even more damnable than the scenario Moorcock painted in the Dancers at the End of Time.
