You mean UK TV?
There are plenty of kiddy fiddlers on mainland Europe.

I'm afraind the Yanks beat them to it. We had a similar US show
where kids were left in a sort of abandoned ghost town in New
Mexico. Same complaints. And, to my mind, quite justified.

Oddly, his first sentence indicated he knew _exactly_ what it was about.

It's terrible. But don't worry, Danish TV will get the rights to it
soon.

Somehow you seem to believe that there are places that are less sick than
UK.

The link was OK. It was what he implied from it that upset me.


I'll take your word for it! My computer definitely did not like the
link. (After having everything freeze when I tried to access it, and
spending a good forty-five minutes just getting my system to shut down
so I could re-boot, I wasn't about to try again!)

any "reality" TV is bad enough, why include kids?


Mistreating kids for the sake of ratings is worse than inane
adult reality shows, don't you think?
