    Hochanda to Be Rebranded

    Are they struggling to pay their internet bills? The quality on SKY seems to be getting worse. It's like they are uploading shows on a 56k modem! I'm guessing dedicated fans probably watch them via the website?

    Just bought a TV

    That's actually a decent price for that LG OLED tv. But buying from QVC is madness when so many other places offer 5 or 6 year warranties. I have to say, because he annoys me so much, that James Murden is such a creepy little guy. And I noticed the other day that despite him being the Samsung...

    Hochanda to Be Rebranded

    They must have been struggling somehow to do this? To change your name to a similar sounding channel all whiffs of desperation really. Which is a shame as I do like to chill out watching the channel sometimes even though I have no interest in crafting. It's just a shame that they have taken on...

    Random musings and general banter.

    Can we come up with another name for Reg Varney? (admittedly I don't post much these days so don't have much say in this :) ) but recently I've been watching some interviews and footage of On The Buses on YouTube (who knew Jack was really so posh in real life!!!) and Reg Varney is just a really...

    Social Media - That was an eyeopener

    I haven't ever paid much attention to the presenters Twitter feeds before. But having a nosey before and it's utterly bizarre how they communicate with each other, solely about stuff they will be selling. What a weird world to live in!

    Oh my word. Just flicked on IW and the "expert" is talking about the crappy laptop they are shilling. It has 4gb ram and 64gb storage with a "quad coreprocessor"....he says "this is not a laptop that will grind to a halt if you want to do several things at once" I'm afraid pal, that that's...

    I know Shaun isn't the only one guilty of this, but really, when you are on TV trying to sell stuff to people you shouldn't ever need to preface a sentence with "this is the truth" Everything that comes out of your mouth while representing that company and doing your job should be the truth!

    Thankfully I'm still managing to mainly abstain from watching this channel. Can't help the odd hop over there though, and just now what tickled me, is that it must be 4 years now, since Jacks was banging on about all the exercise equipment she uses, yet still looks exactly the bloody same...

    Random musings and general banter.

    Apologies if this has been mentioned before (Its a long thread :) ) but has anyone had this happen. I caught the show for the Bamix and have been after one for a while. They have it for a good price considering the accessories so figured I'd dive in seeing as it was with 4 flexi payments. I...

    Stopped in the street.............

    I put "stopped in the street" in the same category as "I use this every day at home"

    Those outtakes in that video posted on the previous page. I see Mason's sole idea of jokes, is basically making sexual jokes about his female colleague. Now I have no doubt she probably didn't mind, as surely she would have complained about it? But could you imagine working in an office and...

    Random musings and general banter.

    I actually tried to have a serious conversation about this on Twitter a while back, with someone defending some female celebrity or other who was clearly overweight, but people were body shaming. I asked why it's deemed body shaming if we say a woman is over weight (when she clearly is) and...

    Oh god just caught a bit of Richard gobshite with his drone. "Looks at this" he says, "no other drone in this class/price range has this....I can lock myself in on the screen and it follows me." Proceeds to walk across the studio and out of shot of the drone as it refuses to follow him at all...

    These nik nak things being shown (things like sticky hooks and custom Christmas message things) being demo'd by a girl who was on QVC a while back, but vanished when she was pregnant. What brand was it she used to represent on there? Bit gutting to be demoted to IW I would imagine after years...

    Oh god, Dick and his drones. I seriously don't know how he keeps a straight face anymore when he demonstrates how stable they are if you leave them alone, then immediately has to start walking after it across the studio. best bit was Gollum reading a "review" from a viewer. Apparently, this...
