I'd rather watch Midlands Today on loop than 10 minutes of Loose Women!
So would I. Awful woman!!

I think everyone does. I try not to use it because they eventually break but I've had some suitcases that would have been impossible to use if I couldn't have wheeled them.
A stupid thing to put into 101 if you ask me.

Another here who's already thoroughly fed up with Porter. Why does she assume that all her opinions are fact?

ETA: Has no-one told Porter how to use the TV remote? Local news can be useful but I agree it's a little dull, so I just watch something else, I don't "waste 10 minutes of my life"
She was very rude to Ben and it was uncalled for. He seems like a nice chap, so what if he comes from a posh background?

Janet Street-Porter = loud-mouthed waste of space.

But of course I already knew that before I watched this

I always like local TV news cos it adds to the feeling of being 'on holiday'.

Lock was good on TV Heaven, Telly Hell.
But I thought he was disppointing on Argumental. I thought Sargeant was much better. Hound and Brigstock were also much better in their roles which isn't something you're likely to hear much
I thought the first 3 seasons of Argumental were better too, Sergeant was a much better host and it had more of a "debate-y" feel about it with Brigstocke and Hound as captains.

Exactly. As a kid, it was a big deal to go down to dorset for a fortnight and suddenly get different news!

I remember being surprised to find Nick Owen doing the local news in the West Midlands. I'd always wondered what happened to him after the breakfast TV years with Anne Diamond

Janet Street Porter is such an idiot. I just... The stuff she was coming out with... We were barely on for five minutes and she managed to mention class and destroy her own argument. Yes Janet, people like choice, so why are you trying to get rid of a fishing programme again?

Don't even get me started on the waste of oxygen that is loose women.

I enjoyed last night's episode, largely thanks to Greg Davies.

This week's Extra Storage edition is once again on Sunday at 11:25pm.

Note that she was complaining about Newsroom South East.

Newsroom South East hasn't been on for about 10 years.

"I like turtles."

Funniest bit of television so far this year. That kid reminded me of Ralph out of the Simpsons.

It was worth watching just to see her get put down.

She's twice the sexist and classist snob than anyone there.

But it did remind me of this.

Thought Ben Fogle showed his class by not reacting to the horrible woman that is Janet Street Porter.

I agree, the way that awful woman spoke to Ben Fogle really showed her as spiteful and crass. I felt sorry for him having to put up with her and her viscious ramblings about class. Ben Fogle is worth 10 of that old hag.

If she says something is posh one more time, I'm turning over.Silly woman.
JSP is fairly posh herself and she is middle class too, she was a powerful, high profile editor of a major national newspaper, she is very wealthy, wears expensive clothes. Class warfare sounds utterly ridiculous from her. She is a foodie, who campaigned for veal to be acceptable, how middle class is that?

I think they should change the format back to one guest. Greg Davies was really funny and I would rather have just listened to him.

I suppose the problem is that if people don't like that one person then they might switch off or avoid if they have checked the schedules. There are plenty I would switch off but might tolerate as one out of three.

I enjoy it, but it has some really slow moments that have me drift off.
The palaver with the big switches and the oh-so-slow raising of the models....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz it really affects the pace of the thing.

That annoyed me as well. I actually agree with her point the local tv news covers too big an area but why did she call it Newsroom South East? If she's familiar with the area, you'd think she would've learned the BBC news programme covering Kent and East Sussex is called South-East Today. Also agree about how annoying she was going on at Ben Fogle about the posh thing. She's a bit of a hypocrite to say the least there.

At least the levers look like they have been glued down now, they were terrible before, they all moved at the same time.
Frank skinners props suck.
I miss when they had more vt's which were funny clips.
