    I find BB boring but i doubt as much of some of the things you have in mind tbh lol

    I do enjoy The Big Questions. Usually has some rep from COE saying their view on controversial issues.

    Fair enough, write in and complain? =P
    The Conservative party would love to get their claws on BBC or Guardian lol

    I don't mean the Tories so much as just social conservatism. I'm as worried or more so about the more subtle influence of non-political programming on the nation. The constant but subtle social liberal agenda in most drama, soap opera, comedy shows and such.

    This is why I for one think the likes of O'Reilly and Fox in the US are no match for Hollywood. The kind of subtle social liberalism they put out is far more insidious and far more influential because of this.

    What liberal agenda?
    Its entertainment

    How entertaining is conservatism? I mean, honestly.
    What can you joke about? Family values? Go to Church? I think not.

    I like Graham Norton when I get the chance to watch him on BBC America. Jonathon Ross too. They completely destroy American late night talk shows.

    On come on. Social liberalism is quite common. Even you must see this. The Vicar of Dibley incident I mentioned above being an obvious example.

    Ever read Shakespeare?

    Sex you mean?

    What kind of question is that?
    Ofc we did.

    As hard as some may find it. We did learn about it in school and college.
    Infact it was compulsory.

    Russel Brand is also amazing. Bit hard to understand sometimes.

    Shakespeare was socially conservative in many ways and yet extremely entertaining.

    O, when degree is shaked,
    Which is the ladder to all high designs,
    Then enterprise is sick! How could communities,
    Degrees in schools and brotherhoods in cities,
    Peaceful commerce from dividable shores,
    The primogenitive and due of birth,
    Prerogative of age, crowns, sceptres, laurels,
    But by degree, stand in authentic place?
    Take but degree away, untune that string,
    And, hark, what discord follows! each thing meets
    In mere oppugnancy: the bounded waters
    Should lift their bosoms higher than the shores
    And make a sop of all this solid globe:
    Strength should be lord of imbecility,
    And the rude son should strike his father dead:
    Force should be right; or rather, right and wrong,
    Between whose endless jar justice resides,
    Should lose their names, and so should justice too.
    Then every thing includes itself in power,
    Power into will, will into appetite;
    And appetite, an universal wolf,

    Well, Norton did have a show on Comedy Central for awhile. Didn't catch on. How come you don't like them? Did they do something particularly offensive or is just not your style?
