I can only assume these 2 morons have something on someone high up in the BBC.

What other reason is there for 2 untalented and chronically stupid people to keep getting new shows on the BBC.

Oh, I don't know.

I love some of the road trips they do where they buy local produce and knock up something typical of the local area. Particularly enjoyed the Turkish one they did.

Let's face it, they're not as annoying as the fat tongued mockney.

Not as good as Rick Stein though.

Anyhow, for the record, give me triple D or MVF any day of the week!

Agreed G'Gal - sometimes, something light and not too intense is what the doctor ordered.

Has minestrone ever posted anything nice about anyone? It's ironic that such a toilet stain is so wont to criticise others' lack of talent and personality.

Think he's been on the loopy juice - that strong cider, Frosty Jacks maybe?

They clearly no nothing about food which to be honest I am not going to hold against them as TV is filled with food people who know nothing about food. They also seem to think they can get away with an Ant and Dec type on screen relationship which they cant, they are not funny and it all seems terribly scripted.

And they can't go 5 minutes without talking about carry out food they have 'up north', chip butties, bacon rolls. They spent last nights show in Hong Kong wittering on about what they get in their local Chinese. They might as well went down their local take away and asked Sammy the chef to go through the menu.

It is TV for people who go on holiday to Spain and complain the English breakfasts are not as good as back home.

I can't stand them. The hariy bikers are just plain annoying with their overly camp voices. It would be funny if they hated each other in real life. They have a good gig from the beeb though. I'd like a roadtrip through the US, filling my face and getting paid for it.

But then I can be easily annoyed where TV is concerned.

One thing that bugs me is all the camera work that happens now. like that poncy Nigel Slater. He's supposed to show you how he's making something but the camera is on his face - then they cut to the food.....out of focus....in focus....back to out of focus. Its like a trip to sodding spec savevrs. Then he puts whatever slop he's concocted in his mouth and its all HHmmm Hmmmm you get a hint of Nom Nom hmmm basil and hmmmm nom.,.. **** off you poncy shit! Result is another broken telly and another refusal from the BBC for a replacement.

It's light entertainment, not a school for haute cuisine. If you want serious information about how to cook, sign in to Cordon Bleu or some other cookery school but don't expect it from two blokes making a telly programme.

Lowest common denominator light entertainment programming is not what BBC 2 is for.

When shite like this is served up I can see why people get fooked off about paying the licence fee.

WGGS. Saw a bit of the hairy bikers last night in Hong Kong in an overpopulated tower block. They were acting very suspiciously as if it was the first time the cameras were on them. Either that or they were very uncomfortable with where they were. Painful to watch, so didn't. Triple D or MvF any day.

Tbh, I enjoyed the new season, if you look at it as pure light entertainment and not some gastronomic journey, then fine.

As for the dieters stuff b*ll*ks well, that was a load of b*ll*cks really. Anything to sell some cook books to a load of gullible people. :eyes

The flat in the tower block was small and housed 5 adults and a child. This included a 70 year old Chinese grandmother who took no sh*t in her kitchen.

Apart from the tripe coming out of their mouths the program was amusing.

They got ripped of buying fish, they ate disgusting Colonial European food, they ate a sweet and sour pork made with ketchup, they got laughed at by a street chef due to their poor cooking ability and they got told off buying fresh veg by elderly ladies. Oh and they can't cook.

WNS.

Mild entertainment.

But if you feel obliged to pay the optional £146.50/year then knock your socks off.

I know I don't. That's why I don't complain. :D

Better than the advert laden kings ransom that sky charge, I get a letter every 2 weeks offering me 12 months half price Sky due to me having subscribed once over 3 yrs ago, am happy with the free stuff + iplayer/4od really.

Yeah, exactly. I've stopped watching TV for about 5 years and better for it. I'll watch the odd film in cinema if I can stomach the kids texting, shouting and talking throughout the film, but more often than not will simply download via lovefilm, netflix or usenext on the plasma and have a nice meal uninterrupted with GF#1 or GF#2.

Occasionally we'll throw a bit of popcorn on the floor to simulate the old 20th century experience. :D

Teaching people you can diet without having to eat salad the whole time is something that is actually relevant to our fat society. It's just another recipe book, but actually rather good recipes.

'Tis true! A great bit of circenses watching gelatinous lardarses being lectured by an ardelio as they fight over 5 loaves of panem! :D
