Never mind the rapes and murders, what we object to on Midsomer Bollocks is the homophobic language. Oh, yes.

Investigate that, bitch!

So, there we were, post-Corrie, pre-Crimewatch, in a pickle telly-viewing-wise and deciding to watch, laugh and point at Midsomer Murders. For those who don’t know what that is, what it is is a sub-Murder She Wrote dramarama where we are expected to believe one small village can sustain a new murder every week. So far, so so.

Then, in a scene we found particularly distasteful pre-watershed, some bloke was poking some bird (really! Like up and down and everything) in a gift shop (it’s a long, tiresome and very badly acted story). ‘I’ve never made love with a bloke who smells like a poof before,’ says the woman. !.

Well, the small-size glass of Tia Maria poured over a single cube of ice went everywhere, confirmations were sought that she really had said that someone smelt like a poof on telebox at around 8.40 of the pm and the requisite complaints were put in to ITV.

‘Smells like a poof’!? When they start using ‘smells like a Paki’ or ‘smells like a Jew’ we will let it lie. Until such a time, lie it will not be let.

  3. I was watching Waterloo Road on the other side.
    Do you like how we still say ‘other side’, when there are literally 18,742 other sides to choose from?

  4. When will you learn? If you watch ITV you will get upset sooner rather than later!

  5. Really? I think the “smells like a Paki” analogy is a winner! There would be riots … RIOTS!

  6. This is not the first time, I was watching it the other day at about 2pm and they said something about a “lezza” I kid ye not! There was also another episode to do with a literary festival and they made another homophobic comment. The writers of this show need to be hung up and whipped with smelly kippers! If only Diana were here…
