Traitors

Post by david63 »

Wondering what all fuss was about with this program I decided that I would watch the first couple of episodes.

Having now watched them I still don't understand what it is all about. Think I will watch some paint drying next!

We watched the last series of The Tourist and enjoyed it. This one, after two episodes seems to be just as good. I have not slept through any part of either episode so it's a great recommendation.

We love Traitors. The only programme in this genre we ever watch. Fascinated by the machinations of the participants to avoid the chop.

Me too Merv - love the deviousness and how false and two faced some people are :crazy:

you’ve only got to listen to some of our forum members to see how they have been brainwashed into believing their ‘Royal Family’ still have a purpose in an era where social disparities are still increasing. :shock:
And the naivety of those who think doing away with the monarchy and having an elected president will solve social disparities. The more stable countries are those with a monarchy. :roll:

I have to admit that the “firm” have done an excellent job in cajoling the monarchists into believing the Monarchy keeps the UK stable…on what grounds they have to say this is open to debate but the consensus of opinion as to what constitutes a countries stability generally revolves around the stability of its political system. :shock: :lol:

Time for a change me thinks

So ..... having recorded the 6 episodes of Truelove we watched the first two last night.

Anybody else watching or didn't you bother thinking that it may be a luvey duvey wokey pokey romance. Nope, its all about an aging group of friends who have a deep love and respect for each other. Getting old is their collective problem and assisted suicide is their solution.

Tricky subject of course and it will, I believe, test your resolve if you presently support the concept of euthanasia.

I watched an episode of Traitors this week and must admit, as with Big Brother I hadn't got a clue what the purpose was or what it was about. It's very popular but what the attraction is has totally passed me by. I'd rather plait fog.

No point watching one episode halfway through the series Foxy 🤣. I’ve watched both series and weirdly enjoyed both - may be it’s an acquired taste like watching football - I’d rather “plait fog” than watch a lot of prima donnas throw themselves to the floor rolling around screaming foul - get my gist 😉. Incidentally I’ve never watched Big Brother or the jungle nonsense eating unmentionables 🤢.

I've been watching this series from the start, more out of curiosity than addiction and to see what all the fuss is about - the latter I am still trying to work out!

I doubt that I will be watching another series. :thumbdown:

Jan, how can you possibly not like football? Clearly you have never watched Leicester City!!! :lol:
Traitors, Big Brother, Get Me Out of Here must all be acquired tastes. My sister is a big fan of Big Brother but it's clearly passed me by. She is a bit weird though!! :lol: :lol:

The brief clips and interviews I’ve seen, i’m like you David, none the wiser what it’s all about. It’s certainly not making think it’s a must watch. But then again I’m not a big fan of game shows. I watch the tail end of Pointless most evenings to see if they win the money and that’s about it.

Each to their own I say - we’d be a boring lot if we agreed about everything. At least this post is back on track - it certainly veered off subject for a while :lol:

By the way Foxy I check up on Leicester City every week - pleased to see how well they are doing :thumbup: I’ve got fond memories of visiting Leicester from when my son lived there.

We're still glued to it. Which is odd because we can't stand anything else remotely like it. But I understand it's a Marmite show. Anything these days that gets an audience of more than 10% of the population is a huge hit.
