How strange you should post now, just after I'd had a conversation of utter disbelief with someone at the veterinary dinner the other night that television had got so bad that we were to be treated to such trite rubbish. I can't remember how he knew this was coming up. Whatever happened to decent programmes on ecology, biology, environment, real life - and I DO NOT mean "reality TV"! What a facile entertainment world we now live in. I despair.

Thats because TV programmers think we're all stupid and so think this is the sort of stuff we like to watch!. Mind you I suppose if they start quoting viewer numbers then they'll tell you that this is what people want!

I think NZ TV is pretty crap anyway and apart with a couple of choice programmes and our saviour channel UK TV! we don't watch much TV! It's a good incentive to go and do something else!

It's good to go rent a few movies instead.

I have to say I can't stand NZ or American idol, any of the survivor programmes, in fact any of these so called reality TV programmes, including dancing with the stars! Stars of what I say!

Load of old codswallop!

At least it might higlight the fact that there are a lot of overweight pets in NZ and get some people to realise they're killing with kindness. However, considering that apparently most parents of obese children don't think their little darling is overweight I doubt they'll be worrying about their dog or cat!

I was watching some Kids TV rubbish the other day (Sticky TV?). They had several children on with their dogs and were trying to get them to do an obstacle course. One of the dogs, a lab or lab X was WELL overweight!!! It could barely move! and when encouraged to run, all it could do was waddle slightly faster. If this dog had been as underweight as it was fat (I hope that makes sense?) my guess is the owner would have been up on cruelty charges.

There's a good starter for your new TV show. Find out who the fat dog was and teach the kid how to give it a proper diet and exercise.

Funnily enough, it's slow but steady progress won it the prize.... which was a bag of food...... The other dogs were bounding around full of energy and had no idea what it was they were supposed to do.

We watch our two girls weight and I am proud to say they are both in fine fettle. Svelt? They both have a good covering but have waists and are never fed rubbish. They get leftovers but this goes into their daily rations. They both have lovely shiney glossy coats and can run like the wind. (Ok so Bria is often self propelled [B)][xx(][:I]).

Maybe you need to ask a few vets and see if any of their patients need a bit of '15 minutes of fame' help?

After tonight's Rhubarb & Apple Crumble with excessive amounts of cream, if he wasn't, he will be! Oh, and I failed to mention the stuffed marrow for first. :D

Hey, how do you guys get UK TV? Couldn't agree more about TVNZ's lack of good viewing, but I agree with LittleLSB that this type of programme could do some good.
Cheers:)

You gotta pay megabucks for Sky TV. It is a great channel though.

My only gripe with SKY is that they have no *&@^#) subtitles or teletext. so why pay all that money for something I'm not going to hear...

Now if they had subtitles/teletext i'd be joining in a flash, as it is, they're down one potential customer, and with those i know who are also deaf, they say the same. Do the stats on the number of deaf ppl in NZ, and SKY is missing out on BIG money thats currently going to the hire shops with subtitled DVDs.
