All there seems to be on the TV at the moment is sport, sport, sport sport, sport, sport and even more sport. And it won't stop for a while yet.
Whilst I appreciate millions of people like sport and want to watch it, I do think proper (and by that I don't mean re-runs of 2nd rate films/series etc) alternatives should be offered. Afterall, we have enough TV channels to sink a battleship these days, even on the good old bog standard BBC and ITV channels alone!
We bought series 1 and 2 of The Killing but we are already on disk 3 and it hasn't even started yet. There has just been nothing worth watching for so long.
DD wants to watch the diving (think she is a bit keen on Tom Daly) and the rowing as the GB team came in to her school and they all did a rowathon
