I've said it before and I'll say it again, British accents during the Superbowl are just wrong wrong wrong.

What's interesting that we've noticed this year: what's playing here, on ITV, is actually about 30 seconds ahead of what's playing in the USA. While I was on the phone with someone I noted that Billy Joel was performing the anthem, the person on the other end of the line had no idea what I was talking about. We realized that there was a TV delay on his end, but not on mine. Interesting! Could this be due to the American television networks desire for a delay to screen for any wardrobe malfunctions so that they can't cause a nationwide scandal (again)? If so, does that mean that their British counterparts aren't worried about things like this? I guess because it's after the watershed, anything goes here.

I love the watershed (#54). I suppose that things get a little more risqué after 10 PM in the States, but not really. There's still so much you can't show. Here, though, all bets are off after 9 PM. I guess that it is supposed to gradually get more salacious as the evening goes on, but I mean there are some seriously kinky sex shows on by 11 PM. Usually on channel 5. Not that I watch them or anything.

I like that here you can decide what you're grown up enough to watch. I hate how controlling the American government is with their media. I mean, we Americans just don't know any better for ourselves. It has never occurred to the majority of us that if we don't like what we see, we could just turn the television off!

I know, I know, it's far too revolutionary. Remain calm. I didn't mean it.

Careful, this is exactly the sort of pinko libertarian guff that'll stop them letting you back in. Deciding things for oneself? Dear me, whatever next? You are in danger of becoming subverted. It would never happen to Peyton Manning.

i definitely do not want to witness and elton john wardrobe malfunction thank you very much. we can't all be as free as places like prague, where certain entertainment is available for breakfast.

Sounds like your a secret addict of classy Channel 5 shows like 'The Topless Trampolinist' and 'World Boob Roundup'. As for the Superbowl, funny to see Americans dealing with classic English sporting weather conditions, and then have Prince sing 'Purple Rain' in the middle of it. Classic.

Well I miss the days when Channel 4 put a red triangle in the corner of the screen, which as I recall basically meant that you were guaranteed at least a bra sighting at some point during the programme.

As a teenager growing up in the pre-Sky years, THAT was what I called a public service.

[In plummy English accent]:



Just stumbled across your blog on this, the eve of my first ever trip to London! I am SO excited! I am just going for a long weekend, but I will post my own "findings" on my own blog 'ere I return.

Check it out?

And Channel 4 was going to run a 'Masturbathon' before all the Jade/Shilpa Sheti palava, and they then cancelled it.

My favorites to date include Women Who Have Sex with Machines, and a very long show about history behind modern bestiality pornographic movies. Fantastic.

If I'd known that this was going to be one of 'those' types of blogs I'd have started reading a lot earlier.
