For humour and to counter the rot here.

I just love the one on the left of the two hairdressers. The one with the glasses, such a great interpretation of stuff we all know.
Tonight's episode with those in the public domain. 'Celebrities'

I dislike most "humour" these days as it is sanitised. Program's like Only Fools, Fawlty Towers etc couldn't be made these days. Instead you have HIGNFW which is basically a Donald Trump hissy fit. Gogglebox is ok but I wished they woud be braver with who they choose. Better than most though.

Really? why?

Psst, programme, it isn't software.

I think it is because some or many of the shows play up to to racial stereotypes.

‘Porrage’ is timeless, but a lot of that is to do with great actors.

Humour is subjective , one man's rolling about with the carpet stuffed in their mouth is another seated emotionless wondering what is funny .
I agree about gogglebox that it could be a lot sharper but then you may lose some of the concept .
