Nowt wrong with Shetland. It's a Scottish Bergerac. Far better than reality programmes which would fill the void. My choice is Sky One repeats of Startrek, the Simpsons, Friends,  etc etc etc.

In fact Sky altogether if one of the mainstream channels fork out for sport.


I enjoyed the last series of Shetland and I was never a fan of the show. But thought I'd give it another go and was quite pleasantly surprised. Will definitely watch it again if there's another series

Re: Off Topic Room 101

I quite enjoy Shetland ...as for Sky One, no @jonsie,.  For people who can't afford the Sky Sports package or Sky F1, Sky1 showed the first 4 F1 races this season. So occasionally they do show little gems unexpectedly...

so repeats on Sky 1 can be submitted.

 

But @jonsie are you also suggesting the whole of Sky One goes in? If so, then that can be put forward, separately for folks to vote on?

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Just the monotonous endless ccle of repeats. Sky One were still showing Star Trek every night at 5pm, the same as they were back in 1982 when we first had Sky. Back then they were fresh and even though the tech was futuristic, it's all got a bit old hat now. Now they seem to have replaced it with the Simpsons....

Re Bullfighting @MI5 

No the Matador doesn't always come off worse. Those injuries to the matadors are few and far between!!

Meanwhile ONE BULL has about 20 'brave' men, not just the matadors, queuing up on their horses to stab and cause great pain to the bull before big balls Matador comes in for the final kill.

 

Not forgetting the horses who are gored by the  bull's horns.

Barbaric. Evil
