      Default So long and farewell TJC

      I've been a viewer of TJC for a while, and have picked up a few inexpensive jewellery pieces for gifts over the years. There are presenters who are fun to watch (Derek Marks and Laura Schofield) and others who make me switch to another channel (Derek Gibbons and Steve Milne, because I always get the impression they sneer at the people who buy the cheaper jewellery). But as of today I've had enough.

      I switched over to TJC this evening after a DVD I'd watched ended, and there was Andrea gurning uncomfortably to camera. Why? Because Amit's decided to inflict himself on the show, and he is literally hectoring people to buy a ring set. I couldn't switch my tv over fast enough.

      I decided there and then: I don't find the buyers being on screen useful as they really aren't telling us anything the presenter wouldn't have, and they are ultra-aggressive with the selling. It's not a fun experience, is uncomfortable to watch and it really deters me from sticking around to buy. So that's it, TJC has now lost me as both a customer and a viewer.





      I can only think that TJC is losing ground to internet shopping. But bullying viewers isn't the way to fight your corner

      Wee Diddy is one of the few that I can watch on that channel, and then only if he is on his own. I just want to see listen to the presenters, not the numerous attention seekers, Amit with his self importance have me rushing for the bucket....

      it's a double edged sword with Amit. Either he personally brings prices down, thus meaning that when a presenter is on their own, the customer is being ripped off.... or he adds no difference to prices and he is a lying shit. (my opinion)

      He's a buyer, yes? So his job is to source gems and metals and haggle for close out deals?

      So why is he setting prices anyway? If he's at some trade fair or whatever in the far east, does he still have to look to see if a platinum bond tatty necklace is selling or not on air, then ring in to tell the production team to knock a tenner off to try and improve viewer interest and shift it all?

      Because that's the impression the presenters give. And if that's one of Amit's jobs, why do the presenters and producers feel they can allegedly ignore him and give their own reductions? And if the presenters can apparently ignore Amit, WHY does he need to be on screen at all?

      The whole thing stinks

      It's a gimmick to make customers feel he is in a position of power and able to give them HUGE reductions because he is powerful.A while back they had Amitathon when he was on air all day.

      It's just another sales pitch. The presenters all do the " phone call to Amit for a special price" and come across like we should be so grateful to Amit. It doesn't work for me but must fool people otherwise they wouldn't do it.
