i hate tv!!!

don't know if anyone saw it, but my hatred comes from the hidden camera sketch they just did on the friday night project with Glyn pretending to be dead to seek more media attention.

i won't describe the whole clip, but in short an unsuspecting member of public was made to think that he was just responsible for Glyns death.

can't believe they are allowed to do stuff like this, it was horrible to see this guys reactions, and then they're all like "you're on tv ha ha ha ". Ha-ha-ha.... idiots.

Theres a button somewhere,If you press that then bingo. It will change to a channel you don't hate so much. Failing that there is another that gives a blank screen:whistling:
#3
it was funny
#4
It was very funny...dont like it? switch over :-D
#5
that's the thing, it wasn't really very funny either.

i'm a big fan of comedy - red dwarf, black adder, mighty boosh, men behaving badly, father ted, brass eye, the list goes on, but, it was just....a horrible situation really.

reminds me of family guy "you've just been kicked in the nuts!" (if you are a family guy fan you will understand the point a bit more too)
#6
and just to add, the title of my thread is an over exagerration for effect, i am just saying i think they over stepped a mark. not trying to create hate here. i know how these threads decline quite rapdily when opinions are involved
#7
you say your a brass eye fan etc what bout the good aids and bad aids? did tyou find that distasteful un funny etc

as said before if you didn't like it turn it over. in fact write a letter to ofcom or the daily mail.
#8
i hate things like that too. i dont find them funny, so i dont watch much on tv.

and yes i know i am boring,
#9
no, i didn't find it distateful - Chris Morris is one of my favourite comedians.

i just think that making someone feel like that guy did (it looked like he was going to throw up his own organs) is a bit too much just for the sake of some "laughs" - as i say, as a joke, not even very good.
#10
I agree with Morris7 , morally it is wrong, it shudnt be done, but it is funny lol
#11
If everybody liked the same things then the world would be a boring place. It's good you didn't like it, that in itself is a form of entertainment as it provoked a reaction from you.

I'm glad others did like it, their sense of humour differs from yours. I think the guy in the sketch was fine and basically you have to learn to laugh at yourself one in a while, he done well.

think your problem is that morris's comedy is seen as trendy intellectuall and very smart yet because this is on the friday night project your classing it as puerile etc.

if morris done somehitng similar I doubt you'd have the same reaction. I spose taking the p out of celebs about drugs and peadophilia was acceptable.

probably just a case of comedy snobbery.
#13
The British Iles more liek THE PAEDO-ILES lollll
i dont know how you can like all them comedies yet be disgusted by what u saw on c4 lol
when that sorta stuff happens in real life situations i find it hilarious lol

I think you're missing an easy distinction between the comedies he likes and the situation on the BB Launch project - the comedies aren't real situations, and the funeral thing was.

There's nothing to do with comedy snobbery here - or are you on the defensive because you don't 'get' the comedy that he likes?
#16
Brass Eye is a seperate debate, where i side with it in terms of being laced with satire and shouldn't be taken seriously. However, although it embarasses real life and unaware people (in the form of celebrities), they were never put in situations that were infact deadly serious. Pardon the pun.

lol i actually love the comedy he likes and i think I just about "get" them that why i cant "get" why he's got his knickers in a twist about a skit on tv that all parties have agreed can be shown on air. If the "victim" can see the funny side then whats the problem.

I think it's just cringeworthy tv. They had to make someone think they were responsible for another person's death just to make the audience laugh at that person's expense?! Eurgh.

agreed angel
#20
ah well horses for courses and all that.
#21
also, can i just ask, i know that some of you obviously don't agree with where i draw the line, but where do you personally draw the line?!

I draw the line at making someone think they have killed someone - is that really an unreasonable threshold? have i turned into an old man about 50 years too early?!
#22
Well the guy didn't seem overly bothered about it.... he whispered to a woman that he was still alive then sat back down. If he had started screaming and dragging the coffin back out then you may well have a point, I wouldn't have wanted to watch that but I can't have much sympathy for a guy who would sit there and let it happen.
#23
don't think its a case of where to draw the line.

its just the way its done. if they had kept the thing running for weeks and the guy eventually had a nervous break down or worse becuase he belived he let someone die then yes that way beyond the line but that thing tonight was for barely 2mins, the guy was fine and saw the funny side.

take it for what it was, a practical joke on a tv.


but fair enough if you didn't think it was appropiate etc then fair play to you.

that's true, but should anyone be put in that situation in the first place? he'll forever be the guy who let someone burn to death (even though he didn't). if he had a conscience that would probably haunt him for a very long time. i know it would me. i think a further reason for my strong feelings is that, if it had just so happened to be me instead of that guy, it would have probably been the worst i have ever felt, and i would have rather have just not featured on a TV show from which i don't benefit in any way.

No :whistling:

They can't show these things without your consent, you have to sign a release form so if it appened to you and you felt so strongly then it would never see the light of day. If these things are genuine they are usually set up by friends or family who know how you are likely to react. Can't help but think that guy was an actor though.

again, true, but i feel that you could easily feel bullied into letting things like this be shown - they would make you feel foolish or bad like you are hiding you're own inappropriate actions. i know i have nothing to back that up, it's just a thought.

anyway, i think the thread has wrapped up nicely with a 'some people like it, other don't' kind of thing. thanks for the constructive arguements rather than things turning notoriously messy.
