This is a question My Biggest Disappointment

Often the things we look forward to the most turn out to be a huge let down. As Freddy Woo puts it, "High heels in bed? No fun at all. Porn has a lot to answer for."

Well, Freddy, you are supposed to get someone else to wear them.

What's disappointed you lot?

When I was a kid, I used regularly to be caught out by the Daily Express TV page.

1pm, Sunday - Thunderbirds! Brilliant! Fireflash! Crab Logger! Some Other Huge Vehicle With Too Many Tyres To Steer Properly! Explosions! Daring Rescues! Collapsible Trees!

Tune in, watch the last bits of the News, sit through the adverts, and... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

Farming Diary.

Farming Bloody Diary.

The Express used to just print a single edition with the London programs displayed prominently, and at the bottom of the page, in 4 point type, was a section called "Regional Variations". And yea, as always, no Thunderbirds but instead Farming Bloody Diary.

Remember when you were waiting for the cartoons to start on Saturday/Sunday morning and all you got was that bloody silver knight figure spinning slowly?

24 hour TV - kids today don't know the hardships of 3 channel TV...

Oh yes
And the lovely BBC scheduling Pink Panther right after Bowls/Golf/Horseracing.

Yep, eight year old me would be waiting for the cartoons.... And waiting.... And waiting....

Meanwhile the thrilling conclusion to a World Cup bowls match was played on my TV instead.

The vehicles that got in trouble ALWAYS had loads of wheels didn't they!!? There was no way that huge truck with 73 wheels was ever making it down that dirt track along the side of a GIGANTIC mountain, whatever were they thinking!
