Lose Our Grip On Reality For Pity's sake

What's wrong with our TV today? What's happened to the golden age? Programmes like Kathy Come Home, Steptoe and Son, Hancock and many many others? Eh? Eh?

I'll tell you what's happened; they've been kicked into touch by third-rate sub-standard reality cack. That's what.

Ever since some media studies graduate found that following people around with a camera would actually be watched by the thick population, then the floodgates have been opened.

Actors who needs 'em? Nobody that's who! Because as a Nation we can't be arsed to watch anything that requires that we invest any time and effort any longer.

So instead of the family settling down to watch Colditz or Minder we now sit on our sofas eating pizza, drinking Starbucks coffee in our semi-comatose state and watch "I'm a complete knob-head watch me make a total arse of myself 'cos I'm desperate to be famous"

However there is one solution to this menace. Go to our TV companies, find who dreams up this nonsense and then kick the living shit out of them. Failing that then reintroduce National Service for all under 25's and that'll get them out of our hair for a while.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
