      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.

      According to the chap presenting - he said "It will pay for itself in a year" - How the heck does that work??

      Why are we still watching this tripe? Busiest part of the show, (SHOW?... Ha), meltdown, web, baskets, right. I will resist, must resist, Oooooooh boy do I need a holiday!
      I never drink alcohol before 1 pm, surely it must be 1 pm somewhere in the World. Cheers!

      I cannot stand Paul Becque, i'm sick of hearing the repetitive 'we're in meltdown' and him banging on about how Ideal World have been around for nearly 16 years.

      Well, Mr Cruise Liner, you used to scream that Bid had been around for nearly 14 years.

      We've heard it ALL before, bore

      This is only my opinion and I could certainly be wrong but if that was raised with The Advertising Standards Authority they might, at the very least, rule that such a claim should not be made without providing demonstrable qualification.

      It's just a hunch but i'm guessing that wasn't provided?

      That's true really, for me it wouldn't pay for itself because I don't buy coffee, so it would actually be me paying for it. Unless it gets a job and pays for itself, and the coffee to go in it, but I can't see it doing that, that machine looks a bit of a Diva.

      Silly, throwaway claims like 'Hotel Quality' are one thing but claiming things will 'pay for themselves' are not on, not without clear proof, which in this case would appear to be quite a difficult thing to provide.

      But we're not talking about an inconsiderable purchase here. We're talking about a £800 product that requires further money to be spent on Electricity, Water Bills, the cost of the Coffee and, potentially, Milk, then there's the filter cleaning products. If it was claimed as described (and I have little doubt it was) it would appear, possibly, to be a claim too far. Sadly i'm just starting to begin to get the feeling we can expect more of these types of claim going forward.

      I hope that isn't the case because, make no mistake, they can expect to be held to account if we do.

      Hmm... I pay approximately £5 per week on coffees (excluding my millicano instant). So 52 weeks in the year brings me to £260. Yep - that's me paid for on my £800 coffee machine! Basically if you are paying £15 or under per week you are not paying for this in a year. You need to be a coffee addict, probably living with another coffee addict, to justify this sort of expenditure.

      Plus, as Wirral says - there are the running costs which are not factored in. So it's going to be nearer the £20 per week coffee habit in order to pay for this machine and all the other costs associated (buying the coffee alone will be a significant expense - unless you want to put poor quality coffee in this "rolls royce" machine.

      Hi all New to the forum been an avid shopping tv viewer for a long time.

      Ideal has shady practices much like Bid used to but dont think the "old" ideal crew dont get upto it just as much. Den, Gen and Loen are just as guilty in different ways imo.

      As my username suggests i regularly file complaints to the ASA (fwiw a slap on the hand is the worse punishment they get). Ideal have had a fair share submitted by me with 50/50 whether they are upheld.

      I have recently received news from the ASA that "we are recommending that both points of complaint should be upheld. " This is in regards to a massive complaint and breach imo from one of the TJCS regular culprits (most on that channel are fine from my experience). Is going to the ASA council next week

      Does anyone else find those clips featuring Elizabeth Grant a bit schlocky?

      She says 'The Essence of Torricelumn comes from under the sea and I have to tell you it's extraordinary because, irrespective of what your little problem might be, it might be your skin tone, it might be blackheads, it might be black shadows under the eyes, it might be the number eleven that's driving you crazy, it might be lines across here, IT DOESN'T MATTER!. Whatever is bothering you forget it, pick up the Essence of Torricelumn'.

      I don't know about you but i'm non the wiser what Torricelumn (a Registered Trademark) actually is. It doesn't sound very specific though, does it?

      But i'm guessing, as it's Trademarked, that it's just a brand name for a mixture of widely available ingredients. Just like Ariel & Persil are brand names of Soap Powder that, let's face it, are much of a muchness.

      But I have to say that the Elizabeth Grant guest (and if she's supposed to be an advert for these products i'll pass) is sailing dangerously close to trouble. She makes highly ambiguous, vague comparisons (in terms of price) to 'other' Snow Algae products that cost over £200, she never names them of course.

      Very close indeed

      When they hit on a big seller, they really do it to the absolute death don't they? That Nicole dress is like the Made in Italy stuff. It's on all the ruddy time lately.
