    Rubbish. Stopped watching it because comics are now all on-message. There's no diversity of opinions amongst comics because they're terrified of causing offence and being vilified for doing so.

    There's diversity in the writing rooms of the BBC though. Especially now that the Beeb has mandated sex / race quotas in writing teams. And that has produced exactly what it was always going to produce.

    Pretty much all british TV comedy now is less funny than Michael McIntyre. And I'd rather cut my own head off than go see one of his shows.


    If you want to see risky comedy you have to seek out the less-commercial live venues tbfh. Or suffer open-mic comedy nights to find a gem.

    So what you're saying is you don't watch comedy anymore, but you know exactly what the content is.

    OK.

    Bit of a Jobism but OK.

    I think using the BBC as an example is a bad idea, they've always historically been behind the curve.

    Watched it on TV less and less over a period of years because it all became stale and stolid. Couple of years ago I stopped completely because of exactly what I said. Calling bullshit on your assertion that they've miraculously turned it all around in this straughtjacket social climate.

    Still watch it live and in person.

    I don't know about any of you - but I stopped watching TV about 17 years ago.

    Actual TV as consumed as TV quite some time ago indeed.

    Jarring when I go round to people's houses and they have the TV on, with adverts. :eek7:

    Adverts are the worst, tried watching a movie on normal tv and got pissed off, watched it on network recording later and just skipped the ads

    I randomly saw a trailer for Undone in a discussion about rotoscoping, it looks great...
