Has anyone else noticed…

… that there are literally only 4 types of television programmes these days:

  1. Cop shows
  2. Medical shows
  3. Reality TV shows
  4. Cooking Shows

I seriously cannot think of any other type of television programme.

Seriously programme makers, there really are only so many ways to solve a murder – couldn’t we just have the one detective. Preferably Gene Hunt! He doesn’t take any nonsense and, don’t ask me why, definitely sexier than all these balding, middle-aged detectives.

I know everyone these days is desperate for their Andy Warhol ’15 minutes of fame’ but do we really have to endure all the reality rubbish. If we want to see idiots behaving badly, all we need do is go into the local town centre at the weekend around closing time to see the local morons – why should I pay my TV licence to have to watch them. Years ago (Victorian times it has to be said) I believe they opened up the asylums and let people laugh at the inmates!

And seriously, some of the stuff these cooks make, in such a short time, I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole. Not only do you never see them washing their hands after handling raw products – which puts me off ever eating in their restaurants – but nothing ever seems cooked. Especially meat. There’s rare and then there’s just shaved off the animal’s backside and served.

And the worst news is, thanks to satellite, digital television we now have a gazillion number of channels to watch – all showing the same rubbish.

Surely, someone in programme making can come up with someone vaguely mediocre?

To be honest, I very rarely watch television anymore, because there is never anything to watch!
