pretty much all of what passes for entertainment these days.

glee, id rather remove my eyeballs with a spoon, no really i would

the xfactor apprentice without talent who looks like some wag from heat magazine and is in a band we made specifically for christmas just so we can cash in on not a celebrity big brother whos stuck in a ****ing jungle with two Geordie *****

**** off, just **** right off, this is not entertainment its the death of culture and society, the death of reason and thought. to be replaced by vacuous soundbites and news speak.

oh and the cinema here can be pretty ****ing miserable but thats only because my better angles prevent me from beating the nuggets on the phone to death with said phones during the film. were they not there or i allowed myself to kill them im sure id find it a lot more pleasurable

Nightclubs. End of.

Pubs I love, but the idea of standing in a sweaty room, with music so loud you can't hear each other speak, being rinsed for drinks at twice what you'd pay in the bar downstairs, and the room being full of personality vacant twats preening... nope.

Other people's holiday photos.

Nice to see a few, but hundreds? I also find it odd that people post so many photos their holidays on FB. A few days away and they think anyone wants to see 50-200 of their crap photos?

if we are talking holidays - anything that involves being forced to be with other people - bus tour type things for example...

My idea of hell would be a cruise - I can't begin to imagine the hell that would be. I'd be praying for the iceberg...

And how big an ego do you have to have to post loads of photos of yourself, especially scantilly clad ones, for all to see? No decorum these days.

Agree with all the reality shows.

Also throw in any soap - Eastenders / Corrie etc...all utter cunting gash.

In addition, anything that involves shit American TV like Sex and the City or Lost or Prison Break. I'd rather suck a mans porridge pole.

Oh god. So true. Especially if it was a table of say, 8 people, that you had dinner with each day for two weeks. I can guarantee they would all be utter helmets.

Then you get off the boat in some amazing city and have about 4 hours to see everything before spending 3 days on the floating prison before getting to see nothing of another city.

Yeah it's a bit much sometimes. But, acceptable if they are fit.

I'm with you on the soaps, but I like the US Series, House, Lie to Me, Lost, Burn Notice, Justified. Although I'll concese it gets very samey after the first couple of series. Heroes was good, had a definitive storyline rather than milking series after series. Bit like the Age of Apocolypse (Marvel) coomic book story. Think I might be on my own with the comic book thing though.
