Oh No - More Pesky Middle Class Kids
9 April 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

MULTICOLOURED SWAP SHOP paved the way for Saturday morning shows like LIVE AND KICKING and GOING LIVE , but MCSS was the original . It was also the worst and was composed of three hours of chat , only briefly broken by the cartoon series VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS or a pop video . The show got its name from the concept of viewers phoning up to swap things , like Tarquin from Surrey wants to swap some books for a piano . The fact that this type of barter system disappeared after the dark ages didn`t seem to register with the producers .

The worst thing was children coming on showing Noel Edmonds their collection of ....pointless crap I think the generic term is . In a more cynical era like today I think it would be called " The Anorak Of The Week Slot " where young middle class children would bore the audience senseless with their collection of matchboxes along with the equally banal Noel Edmonds asking " How long have you been collecting match boxes for ? " . I`m sure the real question should have been " Have your parents ever considered adoption ? "

TISWAS was much better
