      Default Random musings and general banter.

      Good morning everyone. I did a similar thread on the bid tv forum and seeing as this channel this clearly morphing into that entity, I felt it may be appropriate to continue in the same vein.





      I wonder who looked at bid TV's business model, saw it piss money up the wall and decided ''that will work on ideal world''

      I don't expect this thread to be anywhere near as successful as the bid thread but no harm in jotting down your observations upon watching this assumed decline in quality shopping tv.

      Oh I think it will get lots of post's it will from me anyway.

      Hyperbole, I am sick of hearing the 'Outstanding', ''Unbelievable', '' Off the scale good', 'Incredible', wordage used by some of the presenting staff, it is starting to mean nothing, and the usage is inversely proportional to the quality of the goods on sale.

      I have to say, I don't watch to much telly selly any more. However the Bid/PD fiasco was hypnotic slow motion comedy car crash GOLD, I couldn't believe my eyes or ears on some of the presentations. Just fast forward a few months and now I/W are heading the same way. I think the self destruct button has been firmly pushed into obvious oblivion with the new addition of the same mob that were evident at the demise of that channel. It has been said many time before that the apparent disbelief or amazement at the most mundane piece of tat can almost bring some presenters to time and time again experience the same amazement the following day as if the tat has not been shown before. Also while I have the floor - the double description of something being absolutely stunning / beautiful / amazing / etc, loses it's appeal after the same description applies for everything. And the tech lady doing the Tablet, please change the format, where's Janice - she's in the bedroom - oh purleeeese! I/W it is becoming a novelty show as was the other now defunct channel.

      my personal favourite is the memory foam mattress, when they drop a bowling ball on it and then show a video of a lorry running over it.... though it does cut away fairly fast after the second attempt.

      Also the guy who is the mattress expert these days, also is the expert of the restwell 'why not buy four of them' chairs. Not impressed.

      Just been watching Peter Thompson aka Dirty Peter with Chef Paul selling the all new singing and dancing Actifry. I had to turn over. The inuendo....'we don't like pink do we crew, we like something a little darker' then licks his lips there were lots more and bear in mind this is dinner time. It's in the gutter this channel with the likes of him.

      He picks up a compote dessert that's been made in the actifry, poured over ice cream and meringue. He says he's never seen anything quite like it and certainly never eaten it before as he couldn't afford it!!!!!!!!! He then proceeds to shovel it into his dirty gob, purposely, so he gets it all over his face.

      Yep, as someone said before, he's bought his ACT along with him and it's as disgusting as ever it was........yuk!

      I can't quite see how the 'powers that be' are allowing Dirty Peter on IW. Let's not get off on the wrong stance though, Ideal World has long long long ago stopped being an 'ok' shopping channel, back in the day when they had more than 6 ranges I mean. Yes non-believers, IW did used to stock about 5 ranges of jewellery, that's 5 RANGES, not 5 colours of ring :P They too used to have a fair few beauty ranges, and some other things which aren't Karcher, Wagner, Drill All, or Tower :P
      Lately though, IW has become just the bog standard same few products we could all name if pressed; just rotated between Pick Of The Day, Blockbuster and fill-in other hour. I honestly don't see why they have paid the staff the last 2 years or more, surely just repeat the same one hour presentation, with least annoying member of staff and change the graphics? The treat viewers like we have brains made of potato anyway, so I'm thinking they could assume we wouldn't notice.
      But now? Dirty Peter, who even makes Paul Brodel seem more Sidney Poitier than Sid James (as he usually comes accross) and poor Joe was noticeably cringing when he was presenting with him. Joe even had to point out that Peter had only once in 55 minutes said "Flexi-pay" correctly whilst laughing at him :) Peter can't even string a sentence together, its almost sad to watch. Meanwhile Mikey Barra-boi couldn't be more patronising if he tried, and Paul Beqcue and Gen seem to be in a perpetual shouting competition.
      The channel, whilst I honestly thought had hit the very bottom, has sunk to new lows, the only plus being it's humorous and this splendid thread, much missed from the Bid forums, is back, with its many splendid contributors.
      I shall, for one, be even more glued to IW now, for the comedy gold genuis of Dirty Peter, (who added a 'not only' in a written on screen quote of Thomas Kinkade last night :P) and the many many failings of the channel.
      Thank you to the contributors of this thread, who will, no doubt have me spitting tea at the monitor as I LOL :)

      He has left Ideal World, but he hasn't gone very far, he is with Create and Craft starting from next week.
