Gimme gimme gimme...

Americans beware. Your brands, music, television and spelling may be infiltrating the rest of the world but you still have a weakness for the odd British/European import. We gave you the Office and you thanked us (and re-shot it with pretty people); we gave you Robbie Williams and you sent him back (I don't blame you); we gave you Pop Idol (and generously threw in Simon Cowell) and you sent us Kelly Clarkson in return (I think we did rather well out of that one). If you're not careful we might send you Eurovision...

Oh no Sam... You have also been infected with the talk-about-Eurovision-viruss? I had sort of hoped that if we ignored it, it would go away...

Ai ai Ai ai, dear Serge...

My "kleine koala" said it so nice... eurovision is the thing that everybody hates but ends up watching/talking about it...

and why not?

If it is ok for EVERYBODY to like and talk about LOST, it should be okay to talk about Eurovision. After all, it both is mindnubbing television and we are all supposed to have a life or at least not spent our evenings in front of a pc or tv.

But come on... I'm sure that even the cavemen spent some evenings watching their "rockpaintings" with great admiration wondering what the next invention in entertainment will bring.

cheers

And at least Eurovision is only once a year, LOST is every week. Aaaargh!!

I know, I know, see a bandwagon, jump on it. I didn't actually see any of the contest apart from the last 20 seconds when I flicked channels and caught sight of the winners. Took me a while to realise what it was.

I was watching the repeat of Green Wing - for all non UK readers, if you get the chance, get hold of a copy of this show on DVD. British humour at its skewed best

Piet/Irene, have you been suckered into the LOST trap? Are you onto the second series in Finland yet? If you have and you're not, wait to see how frustrating it gets waiting for the next set of episodes

@Pub,

actually, no... I have not seen a single episode yet. My youngest brother is crazy about this show and says I really, really should watch it....

Is it really that worth watching?

@ Piet - if you can ignore the glaring holes in the plot, it's quite good fun. Horribly frustrating though when they tease you with answers and leave you with more questions. I suppose there's always the beautiful people factor to keep you distracted ...

Please just send them eurovision, be done with it! Only got into lost for the last episode of the first series when the young boy was kidnapped at sea by the pirates, knew nothing about the plot so was obviously trausmatised by it, illegal child trafficking et al. Now pimp my ride- that's a show!!!!!!!!!!

@ Rachel - US or UK version of Pimp my Ride?

Isn't the UK version a bit of a sad copy?

I'd also agree with Rachel, that we could just send them Eurovision :) Although next year it might as well be a rock concert. Don't want to send that, we can keep that to ourselves.

As an American who has been unfortunately enlightened on the subject of Eurovision, I firmly resolve to go on a hunger strike if you Limey's try to export that shi-ite...

...and doon't forget. Two can play at this game...and it's never too late for Monster Truck Rallies to catch on in the UK.

(I'm honestly still recovering from my first Eurovision. Hard Rock Hallelujah? For Christ's sake that is awful.)
