And the professionals chose to air 'Don't Scare the Hare'. I rest my case.
I've never heard of it, sounds hairy. Fingers crossed Brucie didn’t host it.

Lovely weather, sunny weekend and now back to this repetitive drivel

I'll admit the profound meaning of this oft repeated 'dream' scenario is totally yours I've no idea what you mean but you may be pleased to know the attempts at browbeating now they do filter through.
Hmm..

You said Bruce was "The Master of Light Entertainment."

No wonder I think you're dreaming.
Come on, that sort of accolade can only cause amusement. But carry on, yours and Terry's blind devotion has to be admired.

You think the criticisms are drivel. Many of us think the same about the over-the-top praise.

There are varied descriptions for Brucie and plenty of condescension about what amuses you. Help yourself. Brucie has entertained for years on stage, tv and more recently at festivals and he may not be to your taste but he is the one in the glare of the lights.

We can do not other than comment on him but you comment on the writer as though it’s they who are flawed. Bizarre nonsense when Festival Goers Delight, Brucie had them pouring out of the tent in their eagerness to watch him. With September far away the talk about Brucie continues to be deafening.

The Master of Light Entertainment, is the perfect title for Sir Bruce.

Well according to QI Mr Forsyth was at the very first Glastonbury Festival - when Jesus and Joseph vsited and planted Joseph's staff to become the Glastonbury thorn.

And in last night's repeat of HIGNFY the birth of the 7 billionth human being on the planet was discussed and you can check on tinternet which number birth you are likely to be out of that 7 billion - Mr Forsyth was reckoned to be number 327.

It has to be, as his fans must probably be mostly deaf.

Having seen some of the rubbish at Glastonbury shown on TV and the crowds reaction to it, they'd cheer at anything. It's much more about "being there" confirmed by a neighbour who goes every year.

Keep up the entertainment!

Brilliant, at last Terry you have begun to see some sense.

Master of Light Entertainment or M O L E for short.


Says it all!

Most people prefer that is out of sight, is notoriously short sighted and not much use to anyone.

They'd cheer anything at Glastonbury providing the beer supply doesn't run out and they can get laid easily.

What I want to know is how much Brucie his paying his bewildered acolytes to write all this fawning drivel about him?

They don't seem to have anything else to do so it must be a fair rate

Perhaps they are all, (all, just how many can there be?), plumbers. He seems to know rather a lot about them, but I suspect that their 'rates' might be a little painful, even for him.

Brucie has moved on from the courts and was in the house.

Bruce Dickinson paid tribute to Strictly Come Dancing presenter Bruce Forsyth last night (August 4) as the metal veterans brought the European leg of their Maiden England tour to a close at London's O2 Arena.

The 85-year-old was watching the six-piece's show at the venue the night before (August 3), without the band's knowledge.

As they brought their show to a close for their second night, last night, Dickinson told the crowd: "We had Strictly Come Dancing in the house last night. Bruce Forsyth was here which is absolutely [censored] unbelievable. I wish I'd have known, I would have said: 'Nice to see you, to see you nice'.

Brucie fans can be found in the most expected of places.

I do actually agree with the thread title. Bruce Forsyth is a legend and I really do believe the initial success of SCD had a lot to do with "Mr Saturday Night Entertainment" presenting the show. However, even legends need to retire eventually and now that Strictly is an established programme and more than able to carry on successfully without him, it's time for him to step back and retire from Strictly.

Its unfortunate that many choose to conveniently forget this fact, the draw of Sir Bruce the Saturday night Legend of light entertainment without any doubt got Strictly Come Dancing off to a cracking start, and Sir Bruce has been trail blazing ever since with record ratings, Sir Bruce truly is amazing and Strictly Come Dancing has much to thank him for in the past, the present and ongoing into the future as Sir Bruce is at the helm once more for another great series in 2013.

Really, Terry, your obsession with the old has-been is getting rather worrisome. Have you considered a change of medication? Did you get rose-tinted spectacles in some 'Specsavers' special offer by any chance?

The fact that the nexr series will again be spoiled in so many gaps between dances by the unwarranted interference from the octogenarian of is almost enough to ensure that many fans of the show will either switch off or makes sure that their PVR's are in good order so that they can, once again, simply FF between his unwarranted and ill tempered interventions.


I'm sure that a change of your medication will help you see your adored and beneficent idol in a more realistic light; the same grey, cold and unforgiving light that so many of us see whenever he is on-screen.

Bruce F may be considered a legend by some people (certainly not all) for his past performances, but the key word there is past.

The success of Strictly has certainly not been in anyway down to Bruce; in fact quite the opposite. It has succeeded despite the fact he has been/still is the presenter.

The last three posters have put it very well. I was just going to say "Pass the sick bucket." The adulation really is sooooooooooo OTT.

I must have eaten something yesterday that didn’t agree with me because I had a very strange dream. I often remember my dreams.

In it I got tickets to a TV show and it turned out to be ‘Strictly’. When I went into the ballroom Mr Forsyth was wearing a gold toga and sitting on a throne, with a man in a skimpy short skirt, holding a large fan on a long handle fanning Mr Forsyth. Mr Forsyth said “I am Fantastic Strictly Forsyth, emperor of all plumbers. I, and I alone, will judge the dancing because I am the one with most expertise and the best dancer in the world. If anyone doesn’t dance the way I do I will have them thrown to the lions. Terry! Lick my patent dancing shoes!” To the audience, “This is Terry my eunuch. I’ve had his tongue cut out because he hasn’t heaped enough praise on me. Good game. Good game.”

At which point I woke up.

Bit of a nightmare there, Janet. The worrying thing is, he actually believes the BIB.

You should get a job writing the 'comedy' bits for the octogenarian plumber - at least we would get a laugh!

Well done.
