    OK, it's that time of year when we should consider helping those less fortunate than ourselves, and pause for thought to think of those that will not have the happy, enjoyable season of goodwill that you will.

    I don't ask for money, but just ideas to ease my suffering and those like myself who find this month particularly unpleasant.

    In their infinite wisdom to appeal to the demographic with single-figure IQ's, the TV schedulers hit us with a triple whammy of shit in December. We have some mincing sort of waltzing show on BBC, the usual tired karaoke show with which to generate this year's plastic No. 1 [STRIKE]cover version[/STRIKE] single and to rub salt in the wound 'I'm a skint z-lister eating lizards' thingy every fucking night on ITV.

    Now as if this weren't enough, the latter show is hosted by that gibbering, dribbling pair of Geordie mental defectives that I won't mention but I know one of them listened to their own drivel and inanities too much and ended up in a mental asylum, so that is indicative of the toxic trash they emit.

    Sometimes I escape with football on the radio, a book or play solitaire. I just need ideas for cheap, quiet pastimes that can occupy my mind at this distressing time of year. Short of taking sleeping pills or tranquilizers to hide away, I don't know what to do?

    Get yourself a Netflix or HBO account, set your slots to auto spin in the background and binge away! Tons of high quality shows on either one. At least that's what I tend to do.
    TV is generally crap at any time of year, around the 23th-25th of December is the only time I actually do bother to turn the box on.

    Got Netflix, the problem is that the witch and kids use the main big flatscreen to watch the shit on, and it's wired into that. So televisual distractions are a no-no.

    Just stick on one of the religious channels and take your pick of the prosperity preachers on show.

    Mike Murdock is a personal favourite of mine, when not begging for money he does at least provide some entertainment in the form of amazing sayings like "Attack is the proof that your enemy anticipates your success", or "A successful life is expensive; it will cost you something to become a champion" (kind of ties in with gambling, so there you go)

    I also like steve Munsey, his toupee is something to behold. Apart from being insane, he likes to mince around on stage attempting to re-enact famous biblical scenes via his dodgy props, eg the ark of the Covenant etc.

    Or you could tune in to VPA Ministries, where the guy shots "1....2....3....FIRE!!" and everyone in the audience sort of falls over as if blessed :D

    Gotta be better than PJ & Duncan in the jungle surely? :eek:

    And here was me genuinely thinking that you where reaching out with an appeal for help towards a very good cause. I may well have redirected my next pass it on to what ever you where appealing for.
    Considering the amount of times you have alluded to Geordie's being idiots,not to mention your misogyny and your obvious contempt for gay people I find it difficult to read your crap or listen to you vids no matter how knowledgeable you may or may not be about all things slots related

    Even better is a beautiful little app/download called Bobbymovie of which you can stream anything your heart desires, Movies TV series, Animations etc ... ALL FREE..

    I have it on my iphone which I mirror to apple tv and keep up to date on all my box sets and movies. Only issue is the TV schedule over christmas looks even worse because you have seen everything.

    Another recommendation is again an ios app, New Yahtzee. Play against other people floating in the icloud!

    Oh and can't forget you could always play some online Backgammon - Bloody love that game! I'll have to challenge you to a few rounds though....

    I binged on Netflix when I was recovering. It was a great past time. Keep your radio off and only play CD's. Get your food shopping done now so you don't have to go during the madness. One great series I watched was Sense8. Very controversial series, but the intelligence that went into making it was amazing. As with alot of their Netflix originals.:)

    Aye, it is something of a golden age in terms of tv series right now. Apart from all the exclusive Netflix & Amazon stuff doing the rounds, I have my trusty Sky Atlantic to pass those winter blues.

    Just finished bingeing The Deuce (pretty good) and am almost through Babylon Berlin. The production values on that are lavish.....but for $40mil you'd expect that :cool:

    You know I'd jump at the chance to help you out mate but right now, I'm probably one of the most depressed, bored out my skull, miserable gits on the planet (sounds like I'm pretty much in the same boat as yourself :p)

    Desperate to find something to do myself.

    PC based stuff, I USED to like playing the more in depth puzzle/strategy/hidden object games - Stab in the dark but I think in small doses you'd actually like these, can grab em 2nd hand off e-bay for pennies.

    Another daft but semi-amusing thing to pass a bit of time is to list an "unsellable - sellable" item, again on e-bay, now we're not talking soiled or spunked trollies here, just something totally random from the house which has maybe occupied a bottom draw for the last 10 years, trust me you'll be surprised lol.

    I'll add more when I've ate :p

    Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I've been playing ye olde star Wars Battlefront 2 which is pretty good fun, if you like videogames, Star Wars and pew pew shooting frolics.

    Now can you imagine Dunover playing online, his swear-o-meter would be off the hook as he gets killed by that 15-year old French kid sniping from half the map away. I know mine is :oops:

    I see no humour at all from misogyny,homophobia, consistent regional contempt or belittling mental health. If you have no issues with those sort of comments that we hear consistently from the poster then that is up to you

    Yes, along the lines of what I was thinking. I can beat every Win10 Freecell game now, bored with that, bored with slotting so some sort of game that's part reflex and part cerebral (not darts lol) so a good ol' shoot-em-up sounds good. :thumbsup:

    Personally I watch X-factor religiously, and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! :thumbsup:
    The only downer with the latter is it's only on for 3 weeks and then we have to wait months until Britain's Got Talent comes back... :(
    You can keep Strictly Come When Dancing though - not my cup of tea.

    I like Ant & Dec, and I'm not ashamed to admit it!

    Another idea (really hope this doesn't go down like a lead balloon)

    You can always start a new thread here on CM which some may not agree with and ruffle a few feathers!
