Tipping the Velvet... the dildo's tomorrow

AdvantagesEnlightening, entertaining, sexy....

Disadvantages... but not sexy enough for some?

"Five million viewers can’t be wrong! Tipping the Velvet, Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Sarah Waters’ Victorian lesbian romp, has actually trumped The Office in the ratings. The advance publicity for this drama was simply phenomenal – pretty much every newspaper and entertainment mag had profiled the writer, or one of the cast, in the weeks preceding it’s tv premiere. So we all knew much of what to expect – ..." Read review

Two's Company...

AdvantagesWide range of programming not just aimed at the masses

DisadvantagesSeen as alternative to some

"Continuing my trawl throw the world of television, I come secondly to (strangely) channel number two, that’s BBC Two for those of you who don’t have a TV. But then, if you had no TV, but had a PC you’d be pretty strange. Anywho, BBC Two it is then. Despite existing on the screens of four nations for almost 40 years, BBC Two is still seen as the alternative channel. It is the Liberal Democrat of the viewing public, admirable but ..." Read review

BBC1 has a little brother and he is much funnier

AdvantagesGrown up and childish , clever and down-to-earth, funny and serious

DisadvantagesIt spawned The Weakest Link

"...the five on offer , BBC2 shines most brightly. First, TV is essentially a massive waste of time. It is an almost entirely passive experiance and more people spend more time watching it than any other activity. So, bearing this in mind, I don't watch a great deal of TV (just the average 10 to 15 hours a day) and like to view selectively. I want a channel that stimulates me intellectually, challenges me morally, stirs me emotionally and doesn't wear ..." Read review

Bbc and sci-fi

AdvantagesDoes show sci-fi

Disadvantagestreats sci-fi shows badly!

"Not really about BBC2 but BBc in general. Why do they treat sci-fi fans as a minority? I mean loads of people like to watch sci-fi yet the BBc acts like they don't matter. Whenever sport comes along its always sci-fi that is removed yet in the world cup Eastenders was still shown when the footie was on! We aren't all satisfied with Star Trek repeats, we need to see something new! It can't be lack of budget, I mean they payed loads for footie didn't ..." Read review

BBC2 see the future of Ann

AdvantagesAnn Robinson, great links between programmes

DisadvantagesWell its BBC2, Open University programmes at 2 in the morning

"...field. I’ve even started watching BBC2 on a more regular basis just in the hope that I might see a new one, there are quite literally hundreds of them. I don’t know what Ann thinks of the links, as I’m not a close personal friend, but it would be an interesting talking point if I were, but she must be confused and very proud of her recent meteoric rise to fame. She spent so many years knocking around doing perhaps not the best ..." Read review
