Love Island…WTH?!

Post by jkbarnes »

It’s our last night in the UK. We just watched a fun show called Antiques Road Trip. From that, my wife then put on an absolute train wreck of a show called Love Island. What the hell am I watching?! First of all, I don’t understand a single word these people are saying! Secondly, what exactly is going on?! This honestly feels like I’m watching a sketch comedy bit. Geez, I thought the US had a lock on mindless, trash TV, but this is giving us a run for our money.

This is the nation of Shakespeare, Olivier, Attenborough, and Love Island. :lol:

Throw a load of absolute nimrods who cover themselves in fake tan, hammer steroids, have silicone put in places that'd make a hooker blush, ensure none can even spell gcse, and you have the basic concept.....

That show and similar is the reason some species eat their young.

Rant over. Sorry it makes me wana put my foot through my tv! Welcome to England!!!!!!

Love island is a route to a career as a minor celebrity and to make a quick fortune to transform your life without any hard work.

Appear on the show, gain hundreds of thousands of instagram followers, promote products and appear on some other shows if you are lucky.

Gone are the days of spending years working to buy a house when you can do it in 6 months!

At least you didn't tune into Naked Attraction...

Ahem, he's in Wales. :aufsmaul:

But that doesn't excuse Love Island. Nothing does. Drew, we can only apologise for it. :(

Bloody Yanks, coming over here moaning about our coffee, calling chips fries, going round and round about roundabouts, and now having a go at our television.

At least they’ve not complained about our beer…..

I thought they had decamped to London.

Love Island, wossat? :-k (Never seen it and don’t intend to start now.

It sounds like another good reason not to switch on the television set.

Shocking programme. I note it’s your last night. Did you get the chance to pop over to CW HQ, Drew?

Yes Love Island is totally tacky, however I’m sure Drew will agree that US TV isn’t that great…more commercials that actual content, and as for those preachers looking for donations…to quote Bono “the God I believe in don’t need cash, mister”.

No. We really only had one proper day in London. I trip out to Maidenhead wasn’t in the cards.
