I rather get the impression these days that for TV to be “real” and “meaningful” and “happening”… [sorry, I am just reaching for that vintage Imperial Airways sick bag…] it has to be presented by televisually [oops, sorry, big word there…] attractive females with wildly gesticulating hand movements but not a lot going on up top. That, and keep it nice and content-lite so that the masses are not overly challenged in-between an episode of “East Enders” and “Britain’s got talent” (sic) or [ahem] “The Apprentice”.

I suspect that my adverse reaction must be due to being a grumpy old g*t on the one hand and having a semblance of a functioning brain on the other. I preferred to plant out my runner beans this evening; they weren’t waving their fronds around excessively. §:-)
