    Yeah, it was something special as all his intros are, but it still doesn't beat his intro for CCCP last night, and how Alexander Shorokhoff (he had real difficulty saying it) designed the slava movement in 1924, which is pretty good for someone that wasn't born till 1960.
    He also said nobody else would have one unless they paid a lot of money or got them from Russia themselves. Although why anybody would buy a Chinese watch (and they were made in Germany before being sold to the Chinese) from Russia is beyond me.

    Another Vostok show, obviously didn't sell out the watches as planned in the last show, and it's your last chance to buy, Peter Simon said honestly it is, sure he said that in the last show.
    love the way he (they) keep saying, we thought these had sold out, why they've been on your website to buy for weeks, without any indication that they've sold out. Anyway, wonder what they will be selling on the 2 hour Vostok show that is scheduled for tomorrow night, maybe that will turn out to be a last minute show arranged because some were left from tonights show.

    I don't like to be fattist, but having just watched Rob Locke and Paul Brodel presenting some nondescript cooking appliance I felt slightly queasy. There's something really unpleasant about two extremely fat middle-aged men getting over-excited about food. It's pretty basic sales technique that you don't have fat people presenting food (unless it's a chef), so it was a poor choice. Actually, it was ****ing horrid.

    I watched Rob Locke on a cooking hour last week and he ate, literally, for the whole hour

    I always laugh at most of their cooking shows, they bang on about all this healthy cooking with less fat, healthy eating etc, yet the the guys doing the cooking and some of the presenters are the most unhealthy overweight (some are outright obese) bunch i've seen, they're not exactly a great advert for healthy cooking and eating that's for sure.

    What utter nonsense from P Simon, he's selling the Rose Gold Airgility Max, never seen anything like it, never seen battery at 29.v, etc etc, blah blah blah, oh and he genuinely thinks they've made a mistake with the price. Someone should tell him it's the SAME Airgility Max, with the same specifications, they've been selling for months, at the same price, only it's a different colour.

    Rob Locke's always been fat, even way back when he was with qvc.

    P. Simon also mentioned it got a Good Housekeeping Award in 2019. Well if the Rose Gold is brand new I don't know how it could win awards yet, but anyway the blue colour has been out a while but I don't see anything about it winning awards, I do see a review by Good Housekeeping containing the following.

    "It’s fine for picking up dust on hard floors and larger crumbs on carpet, but dust pick-up on carpet isn’t good enough to replace your main vacuum"

    "Overall this budget vacuum is fine if used for quick pick ups in addition to your main vacuum."

    Obviously not quite the outstanding Vacuum that Ideal world would have you believe.
