It's very hard to tackle people on this in real life because you seem like a pompous prick.
However, online with a load of strangers it doesn't matter quite so much.
So, given that
there's barely anyone in it with a shred of acting talent
the plots are pretty always miserable
why does it get such astonishing viewing figures?
My theory is that most of the audience are thick.
Anyone not thick on here watch it and enjoy it in a non-ironic way?
