Disadvantages: Fakes, Dangerous clips, Lisa
When You've Been Framed hit our screens many moons ago, it provided us with a different type of entertainment. At first Jemermy Beadle hosted the show. The show consisted exclusively of people and pets been caught out on camera. The general public could sent in their funny clips and get a few hundred quid for them.
Like everything at first the show was great every episode had new genuine funny clips, and it provided half an hour a fun. Its seems to me as though Beadle exited the show on a high, ie: before the stock ran out.
You've Been Framed is now back on a screens complete with a new presenter Lisa Reily ex Emmerdale actress. To be frank they should never have screened this show again.
Now we have to put up with Lisa trying very hard to be funny, and not to mention her dress sense, its not very easy on the eye.
To cap a bad situation, most of the clips are repeated, its got so bad that some clips are shown week after week. Any new clips that do come in are fakes, people see this show as a quick way to make a bit of extra money. When you think about it, it is so easy to fake a clip, excite you dog, or get your kid to squirt you with the hose.
The thing that bugs me the most, is the dangerous clips, some are down right dangerous, some of the people were inches away from death. After the dangerous clip, we hear the old laughing box, like its sooo funny, as if.
I say scrap the show, and bring back something like Beadles About, or a new concept. If you are interested in watching repeats or like Lisa you can catch You've Been Framed on Saturday evening.
