Unpopular Opinions You Hold

Not sure how unpopular it is but if I'm working from home I want it to rain all day, I want it to be bloody miserable outside. I just seem to crack on easier.

If you're WFH and it's bloody lovely outside you're likely to want to go out and don't have that requirement to stay at your desk. Whereas if it's pissing it down, that's all less likely

I'll chill out watching 'A year in the wild' and you can unwind to 'Me and my penis' :P

Or I can watch Cats Does Countdown and Travel Man, and you watch Can't Pay? Well Take It Away and a Neighbours/Home & Away double bill. 

 

I mean I've just looked at 5's schedule today and there's nothing that I'd watch unless I was being paid.

Ermm, Bargain Loving Brits In The Sun is one of the greatest ever pieces of television mastery I'll have you know.

Converse are absolutely terrible 

Also those trainers with the really big heel, that come back off the back off your heel by like 2 or 3 inches. Don't get it, but then im pushing mid-30's now so maybe I'm just not cool anymore.

Hopefully Travel Man will improve by Ayoade slinging his hook, I like him and virtually everything he's ever done but his "unwilling participant" schtick doesn't work for a travel show, it makes him look like a rude dickhead. 

I've been watching reruns of this recently, got through loads. I like Ayoade but it comes across to me as though he's more of a character in it.

It's the same persona he has on panel shows and stuff isn't it, doesn't translate too badly on those but it wears a bit thin on Travel Man for me. He does well with the majority of his guests which helps.

Agreed.

 

In contrast I think the Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan strikes a great balance between dryness, being funny, and being respectful of the destination.

Yeah it's got a bit stale with him there. He's almost become the passenger in the show alongside the celeb he's with. Good fun watching it but would work better if he was replaced.

100% mate, the Bosnia ep of Romesh's show was brilliant

Romesh and his programme are quality. Is the Bosnia one where he went underground to a real-life war house and was almost pissing himself at the guy showing him round lol 

 

I loved the South Africa one. Got quite moving when that race dispute about Cecil Rhodes got going.

I thought Joe Lycett was signed sealed delivered to replace him? Have I dreamt that or did it fall through or something, I might have imagined it.

Lycett is as bad for flogging a dead horse by deliberately being obstinate to customer service workers for cheap laughs
