    This is such a trashy show. The stories usually have a slow build where you pay attention to details and an awesome pay-off at the end when Holmes connects the dots. The best part of the stories was that most data was equally available to you prior to the conclusion - so people, especially kids, get a sense of wonder at how someone playing on the same field could connect everything.

    The show trades this in for getting as many cheap pops for meaningless moments of 'brilliance' and stupid condescending wisecracks as they can get off in 60 min with zero ****s given about the quality of the storytelling.

    Tv licences are stupid. Just pay for your public broadcaster through consolidated revenue like normal people do.

    ****s me off that they've barred access to iPlayer through VPNs, and then on top of that require you register for an account, provide a shitload of personal information, and promise that you really do have a TV license.

    I just want to watch Gunpowder from outside the UK ffs.

    And then you have all the high salaries being paid to wastes of skin like Lineker, Norton and Balding.

    The "if you don'y pay them big money they will all go to private providers" really hacks me off as well. Especially Lineker. What the **** does he actually do that is good? I'm serious, what good does he do? Are people seriously suggesting that people will go "ah nah I'm not up for watching Match of the Day this week" if he was removed? I just really do not understand the purpose of him. You could have MotD presented by a dog and the audience figures would not change. Should just sack all of these ****s and pump the money saved back into actually making more stuff that isn't total garbage.

    Edit: Speaking of garbage. **** Doctor Who. And especially **** Sherlock. And especially **** Moffat. WAC.

    Edit: And that ****ing Wimbledon 2 abomination, or whatever it was called. And so many other things. Jeez it grinds my hears.
    Hope the hangover has gone today

    It would've been gold conversation. I had this whole thing planned out where I was going to act ignorant of what a TV license was, then get the guy to explain the process in detail. Shame it never came to pass.
