    What a load of pony. Is this what our licence fee pays for?

    One of the most respected comics out there, if its not your 'cup of tea' that's fine but i don't think you can call it 'pony'.

    BBC has to appeal to a very wide audience. Can't all be Eastenders or Terry and June.
    They have a great reputation around the world for quality and variety. We should be proud of them.

    As for this programme, not really my thing. I have seen it a couple of times and laughed a little. Tends to drag the jokes on a little for Gen Y I think.

    I watched it once and that was enough for me. However I do appreciate that those who like it pay the same licence fee as the "Celebrity Kitchen Swap On Ice" aficionados.

    Not BBC, but I've just wandered in, put the telly on and Bullitt came straight on. Car chase is on. So is the amp..

    Now if that's what I'm paying Sky to watch, then happy days :)

    Edit - sorry its off topic, but no Mrs TDE1 today = afternoon in the local. I'll go away now and listen to V8s.

    I don't think that broadcasting an oft-repeated film from nearly half a century ago makes Sky good value for money.

    Was intended as a light hearted post, but I'll let the other 10 million voluntary subscribers know ASAP. Silly us ;)

    Sky would be delighted to have even half that number of subscribers.

    He was far funnier with Richard Herring
    I think i've seen more stand up comedians than most( a few on this forum hehe) -Lee can be hit and miss though.Scathingly brilliant but also just bitter and not funny at times

    If you settle for Top Gear then it definitely wouldn't appeal.

    Then how about a series where June is a medium? Could call it "not even till death do we part"

    Terry could be a poltergeist, moving paint rollers and thelawnmower ...........

    If he's ghost then it should be called Terrified and June.
