Why I Will Never Own a TV Again...

Once upon a time, TV was good.
Now it is sh*t.
That is why I will never buy another TV license
As long as I live
I cannot be the only person who feels like this...
What are the TV listings tonight?
I just looked at them
They are sh*te
I'm glad I've got
The internet
And friends
And more than friends yes
A fiancee as well
I love you, my darling
Let's play cards and listen to songs instead
TV Licensing want a hundred and forty two quid
To screen I'm a Celebrity in a Quagmire
Get me Out of Here
I'm going to have to write to them

I completely agree. Most TV is utter rubbish. (Excluding nature programmes, documentaries, etc.)

Congratulations on your engagement by the way, that's brilliant news. I hope I get an invite to the wedding!

I'm surprised to hear that anybody is still watching TV...

I haven't had one for years. Gained a surprising amount of space in the corner of my room and must have saved the best part of £1000. It is a good form of legal tax avoidance. Not having a TV is one of several ways of keeping one's money out of the hands of the evil government - it is possible to deprive them of up to £5k a year in this way.

According to a programme I heard on Radio 4 last week a lady interviewed back in the 1950s expressed her satisfaction with the acquisition of a television set observing, "When you've been married a long time you don't have so much conversation. Television helps pass the time." Not a problem I've encountered in 25 years!

You realise that both the X Factor and I'm A Celebrity (Allegedly) are ITV shows and not funded at all by the licence fee?

My TV just packed up. How ironic! I'm really not bothered about replacing it as I don't watch it much anyway. I prefer entertaining my ferrets, who also show little interest in TV and enjoy bouncing around to music instead! Muse always seems to make them more hyper, Mozart makes them relaxed.
