i've been in the uk for the past month. during that time i enjoyed watching a variety of interesting programmes on tv.

since being back, i must have watched people eating instant noodles on tv about 4 times, and i've only been back 2 days. what is with this? it's the same shit over and over again. if it's not eating noodles its cleaning the house or even worse - watching people watch people cleaning the house.

nothing interesting is happening. it's 9pm - prime time - and this is tv at its best? i've clearly forgotten how incredibly inane korean tv is. i just cannot get my head around why this would be entertaining to.......anyone

Just remember that this is not because TV from one country is better than TV from another country. That notion is beyond the realms of possibility. It's simply because you don't speak Korean well enough or understand the culture.  I will further prove this point to you by bringing to your attention the existence of several banal prime time UK TV shows like Love Island, I'm a Celebrity and and Great British Bake Off.

I get my fill of Korean TV when I visit certain restaurants. It guarantees that I'll never use the TV in my home for anything other than movies or games.

Yeah, our big TV in the living room's been bust now for about 6 months and neither of us have made any noises about replacing it.

What's that one where they get couples with huge amounts of money to spend to look at three massively overpriced houses then reject them all because the wine cellar doesn't have quite the right dimensions or only three of the five bedrooms have en suite facilities?

'Wanted Down Under' or 'Escape to the Country'?  Both similar I suppose.

Ah, the programme where midlife crisis dads tear their wives and children away from their friends, loved ones, safe and secure lives and drag them across to the other side of the world because "they've always wanted to do it".  I loved watching it haha  ;D

BBC iplayer have blocked my VPN and all the other ones so I can't watch This Country- The Aftermath.

Searched the internet far and wide for a torrent but the only one available is corrupted/awful quality.

It's on my desktop right now lol.  I found it on Piratebay and the quality is good but it won't open in Windows Media Player so I just used GOM.

I just put it on Google Drive so I can share it with you if you want  8)

I like 'Come Dine with me', when one of the guests has some sort of mental illness. And the narrator takes the piss out of everyone.

for some strange reason, i love it.  it's my guaranteed morning watching when I go back home to visit.  it's a shame as now it's mostly 'people adding to their vast portfolio' or on behalf of 'investors', rather than people taking a punt at the auction.  but still....

Dave Lamb absolutely makes that show.

"Dinner Date" is along the same lines and it's brilliant.

Yes, it's going the same way as Big Brother.
