I'd like to be Wink

We started watching it at the start of the current series (we even tape it so that we don't miss it . . . . and we can avoid the adverts) and I've been very pleasantly surprised about how good it is.

We deliberately avoided it at first because of Arsehole Clarkson, but we thoroughly enjoy it and he's good at it. Mrs. A. and I both think that it's better than before and Clarkson is a better host than Chris Tarrant was 🙄

Is this because there's not much choice 'cos lots of telly at the moment is repeats, and/or our expectations have been lowered, or is he actually a good host ?

He's still an arse, mind, and he's got yellow teeth, meaning that he must have a horrible odour/aura because of it 😐

Do you watch it . . . . what else are you watching in the days/weeks/months of having no proper football (or much else) to watch ❓

I hate to break it to you but this 'current' series of Millionaire is actually one of those repeats you were mentioning. It was previously broadcast last year.

Perhaps we missed it 'cos, as mentioned, we deliberately avoided it 😄

It's good that we did, otherwise we'd be whingeing about the repeats 🤗

Cheers, marra Wink

p.s. you didn't answer the question 🤔

Well i was like you with an aversion to Clarkson but when I did happen to watch it I was pleasantly surprised. 

I don't know if I can really compare the two comperes because they both had their different ways of doing the programme. But I was surprised how good Mr Clarkson was with the contestants. He always seemed a bit abrupt and laddish on Top Gear. Maybe we are seeing a different side to him because he doesn't have those two other guys there.

I love Clarkson doing it, I love Clarkson are words I never imagined I would ever say.

Even though they are repeats I'm still enjoying watching them again.

We like to watch The Chase, too, but we won't watch it if The Beast is the chaser, because he's a lazy bastard who can't be bothered to talk properly . . . . anybody who would say 'ferty fousand pounds' instead of 'thirty thousand pounds' should not be employed, especially on telly where millions watch and listen to his laziness (no, he hasn't got a speech impediment, he's just a lazy tw*t) !


There are plenty of other chasers, so why employ him when he takes the mickey out of us all ?


Similarly, the likes of Paul Merson on Sky Sports, who would say for example 'he was frew on goal and made it free nil' . . . . tw*t  Evil or Very Mad


The biggest problem is that nobody corrects these idiots !


It's like bairns must be taught at school that a 't' and an 'h' together should be pronounced 'f'  Crying or Very sad


When we were bairns, if we pronounced something like that we would be told, probably ONCE, how to say it correctly, and that would be it . . . . job done.

That was a rant  Very Happy

Anyway, the problem with The Chase is that it's got adverts, which I don't watch so I turn it over at the first one, to 'Pointless' which is another very good programme, and often forget to turn it back  Wink

Fully agree about Merson,  not only does he speak like a dosser it’s just sound bites and drivel which is bloody annoying to listen to when you’re paying for it.  I haven’t a clue why Sky entertain him as he certainly dos’nt entertain me.

That actually goes for most pundits nowadays,  many of them haven’t kicked a ball in 30 years and don’t seem to realise it’s a different game with different standards and rules now.  

I think the best pundit on at the moment is Gary f#@+”:&g Neville.  God that hurt.

Re adverts though Gordon,  try watching Sky mobile (or something like that) with Lilly Allan in.  OMG.
