Anyone a fan of this on here?

I don't want to bash it too much. My parents watch it and love it. Same with shows like X Factor, Britains Got Talent, The Voice. My mom loves the singing. But for me this is up there with the worst of modern telly. The reason I don't watch it anymore. Cultural Marxist rubbish along with most panel shows now and The Great British Bake Off.

Reason I post... just read Prince Harry has appeared on it. Just wondering if it's a popular thing or more think the same as me?

My other half’s addicted so I watch it too.

Bill Bailey can dance and he is funny.

My grandparents watch strictly so I've seen the odd episode and whilst it's a bit dull it seems harmless enough, the contestants do genuinely seem to enjoy themselves tbf.

Must confess I don't mind the bake off at all, I'll watch any cooking programs tbh as I just really like food!

Britains got talent and the X factor are just about watchable at the audition stage if there's nothing else on but that's about it. The voice is awful though.

Fairly sure Nigel Farage bashed Strictly on his campaign, now he wants to appear in it! It was one of the few things I agreed with him about as well as not liking aggressive rap music.

I was an old school raver and would prefer to watch old MTV of the 90s when Dance Music was on but my parents love these shows.

I've never got into it. Reason being you don't do Argentine Tango or whatever they do in an average club. Maybe missing something.

My good lady watches all of these, I don't, which is why I have my own TV room/ man cave.

Not a big foodie so have never watched a cooking programme if I can help it.
But been in my mates house and that sort of program is on all day. Once had to watch a one where people went to others houses to eat then gave a rating out of 10. Eh my god. Done my head in.

Cultural Marxist???

Whats this in Laymans language
I’ve just googled ‘cultural Marxism’ and I still don’t get what Zerkalo is on about.

‘Strictly‘ is simple family entertainment that has the added benefit of actually teaching people a new skill. Quite a few people choose to watch it.

My partner watches it and I causally glance :), tbh it's impressive how much some develop through hard work.

OP made me chuckle, he posts about his love of pretentious weird music, Film Noir and black and white films most have never heard off yet dismisses the most watched thing on TV. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Partner watches Bake Off as well and must admit I have warmed to it - just can't knock people who want to learn and try to better their skills/experiences (y)

Please excuse my drunk moaning last night about these shows, like I say I don't bash people for watching them as my parents do, but don't watch them myself and don't watch telly anymore in general. It's all my parents and family watch along with soaps and dramas.

Cultural Marxism has been adopted as a catchphrase by the far right but to me that's not what it means and is what is actually going on our TVs. It's a combination of Marx and Freud/Jung and general cultural theory as started out by Frankfurt School philosophers like Adorno. :) (y)

I'm probably making things up again but seems to make sense to me, it's not how I dance on nights out anyway.

I understand ‘catchphrase’ and ‘frankfurt(er)’ but I still don’t get cultural Marxism and what it has to do with Strictly.

As for the fact that the most talented maybe not winning. That might just have something to do with the general public being able to vote.....

Well to me it is bourgeois dancing (Marxism) and feminist (Freudian) too, given by how many women watch these shows. Adorno's Negative Dialectics theory was a revelation to me, but to me the theories aren't being used by a Socialist State but have been adopted by the Banking Class and Governments to control what's on TV and it's not just the BBC at it.

If that sounds too close to a conspiracy theory, it probably is, but then again I do read things like this that put bad ideas into my head haha

If the Henry Makow bit put you off I don't blame you, before I get dragged further into this, but I find 'some' of what he says more interesting as a conspiracy loon than say, David Icke.
