“ Granada Breeze was a lifestyle channel from Granada Sky Broadcasting. The channel was aimed at female viewers and showed programmes shows on lifestyle, cookery, health and US daytime television such as Judge Joe Brown. Towards its closure, it showcased paranormal programmes, one of which was presented by Derek Acorah, but these programmes have not been shown since Breeze's closure. „
You really do have to be a couch potatoe to sit all day and watch this stuff! I don't usually watch daytime TV but I was ill recently, so I took the opportunity of finding out what all the fuss about Breeze was. A few people had told me that it is like a womens' magazine and really interesting. (I don't think.) It is really boring. The programmes are mostly about household matters, cooking, gardening and the like. Sometimes we are treated to half an hour of mindless prattle when they have a chat show. Sky TV should get rid of this rubbish like Cable already has and put something that doesn't put you to sleep in its place.
I read so much about Breeze before I actually got digital TV that I was really looking forward to watching it. It was described as a women's magazine type programme and although I don't watch much daytime TV I thought it would be the sort of channel that you could switch on for half an hour while having lunch, or coffee. It wasn't what I expected. There are too many cookery programmes and DIY, or decorating type things. The rest of the time is taken up with poorly produced chat shows. These get very repetitive after a couple of days. The only good thing about this channel is the 'Psychic Livetime Show' which is on Fridays (twice) and Sundays. The subject matter could be interesting but it isn't presented in a very exciting way. Derek Akorah who does the psychic readings on the show is the only good thing about it. He is a real showman and wears some gorgeous outfits. Apart from this Breeze has very little to offer. If you read 'Woman's Own' or 'My Weekly' you might find the content appealing. If not, switch off and save your electricity, or watch something else.
Well so far this is the worst channel I have had the misfortune to view, crap cookery programmes and not much else. I guess it’s aimed at the housewife as I have caught my mother watching it a few times. You see a lot of Julia Carling on his minor channel. This channel is available on Sky Digital, Analogue and Cable although why you want to watch I will never Know. On digital it doesn’t even become men and motors at 9pm so no rest bite there.
I know it's sad, but this is great! Judge Joe Brown is the male equivalent of Judge Judy, and like her this man takes no crap from the people that come into his court!! While some of the cases may seem petty and just plain stupid, it's worth watching just to see them get bawled out of court by Judge Joe. Like the woman who was divorcing her husband who was killed but then refused to pay anything towards his funeral, or the teenage boyfriend and girlfriend who were 'playing house' together. I'm always dubious as to how real these cases are, but who cares when they get shouted at by Judge Joe? It's got to be worth watching just for the comic value alone.
During the day this channel is one of the worst channels that I have ever seen, dodgy cooking porgrams and housemakeovers - you know just the stuff that your mam would like to watch day in day out. But if you wait till 9pm it becomes Men and Motors GRRRRR... watch those tostestorone levels sore as the only programs shown on this channel relate to women (ususally some sorts of sex) and car's and car crashes. This is a perfect thing to watch when you come in from the pub wankered. Especially all the stunts and crashes... I always seem to miss all the bits about sex... grr Cheers Alex
Sounds like a new brand of washing powder? In a way, it is! This is, dare I say it these days, a wimmin's channel, and makes no apologies about it. After all, Granada has Men and Motors for us lads (wthout getting much stick about its Jeremy Clarkson meets page 3 style), so why not get a away with something that is modelled on the copies of Woman's Own my mother used to get when I was young. Cookery tips, baby programmes, a chat show hosted by Donny & Marie Osmond: what more could modern woman want? Sorry, got to go, my tongue has been in my cheek for so long, it has got stuck!
