  • 6 - Cutting your TV shows off
  • 5 - Cillit Bang
  • 4 - Frosties
  • 3 - Sofa adverts
  • 2 - Cheesy voiceovers
  • 1 - Womens haircare products

Last Starfighter? Such a terrible movie. Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from Startrek TNG) was in that, but the scenes were deleted. Thats how bad it is.
I'll probably be watching it though, nothing better to do.

That Barry Scott doesn't know when to stop does he?
I don't like that kind of viral stuff, and neither does my mate Tarquin.

Tarquin says that DOMESTOS kills all known germs dead, and that anything else is inferior.
I replied to his remark with something about sex and travel.

Great show again. Back on form.
Any more guest appearances in the pipeline?

Rusty Balls and 'jobs' that I can't type here because they just look scarily filthy ? I've not laughed so much in a long time.

Comedy gold, that was. Finbarr Saunders would be proud of you two. More please !

I've tried Cillit Bang's Universal Degreaser and it's absolute rubbish. Barry Scott should be ashamed of himself. Mr Muscle Kitchen Cleaner is the business, and he's just a wee, weedy bloke built like a pipecleaner. Just goes to show you that you can't believe everything you see on telly.

The boys are back - and back on form. Especially enjoyed the Kids in America slot.

i hope we will be seeing rusty taking part in the show again soon!
great show, one of the best in recent times.

I enjoyed the "Kids In America" bit but are you aware the that "Frosties Kid" comitted suicide after making the advert. I don't think you should be saying bad things about a kid that killed himself.

edmarriner said...

But that was only a rumor. Since the ad there has been a statment confiming he is all well and good.

""The current advertisement has been well received by the vast majority of our customers. We would also like to take this opportunity to confirm that the lead boy within the advertisement is well and continues to live in his native South Africa.""

Urban myth about the froisties kid - he's alive and well.

Brilliant show.

Whe n do we get a new show. im suffering withdrawl symptoms again...

Bazza said...

Of course the most annoying advert of all time is the piracy one you get at the start of DVDs that usually won't let you skip past. The one that has a girl downloading a movie then comparing it to stealing a car and burglaring someone's house.

It's only us that actually buy genuine DVDs that have to watch it everytime.

Yes, and when did download pages EVER look like the download screen in that advert??? Just like how come every TV series which has someone typing search data into a computer has each keystroke and result accompanied by a beeping noise... How annoyingly unreal is that??

b said...

the stupid elephant.co.uk advert is really annoying.

PH said...

More TOTP. A slow release of the 9 shows would be most welcome. Really appreciated too.
Hope both Rob and Jon, and their respective families, have a wondeful holiday season.

hey, i know y'all did a show about 80s cartoons a while back. scifi dig's new episode has a segment where they play theme songs from some 80s cartoons. you might get a kick out of it. http://www.scifidig.com/

Is Barry Scott related to Barry Bethell, who did those equally annoying Slim Fast advert in the early '90s?
