And that concludes this weeks episode of ‘Things I Could’ve Easily Googled’.


That sounds more like an ITV 2 show. Wink


I can Picture it now

From the makers of "Thing i looked up on Youtube" and "Which TV Fourm member is that" is a new pointless gameshow hosted by a reality show contestant who no one liked in the first place. Thing I Could've Easily Googled - Friday 10pm on ITV2
The Morning Show With Michael

It should probably have the companion show ‘I’m Not Funny Get Me Off TV Forum Now!’

You'd have to be an incredibly sad person to only judge it by the colour of the character's skin than the actual concept.


The only time I even thought about the skin colour of the man and girl was when I saw it brought up on the internet! I think that says more about attitudes of the general public than the BBC thrusting false diversity messages down our throats. Sometimes when the BBC tries too hard to be diverse to tick boxes, it backfires on them, but in this instance, I don't think it's overly obvious and as such I have no problems with any of the idents, or the characters within them.

A complaint about that (why aren't they white?) was the first comment posted on the YouTube clip which was released before it aired on TV.

Sadly, there will always be idiots in control of keyboards!

If anyone has been unable to view the idents posted on YT over the last few pages (they were taken down by the BBC and in turn, copyright strike), here is a compilation of all five Christmas idents, as a substitute for the pulled videos.

I have one thing to say about this presentation. Stop trying to be diverse BBC, you make tons of people angry at how bad your attempts are.
Change back to ITV1, as it's less confusing than calling the channel ITV and calling the company ITV!
