worth the license fee alone...
I find it hard not to look at david dickinson.
He's like a bad caricature of himself.
are there any other ITV ones of note? Dickinsons Dodgy Deals was the only one i could think of....
Old school...Going For a Song
this is fun watching....
Early cash in the attic when people were finding genuine old tat that was worth a lot scattered around the house. Antiques Road trip is good too. Haven't voted though. Cash in the attic went down hill after whatshisface left and was replaced with the annoying lady.
Ugh, cannot stand her. Always seems like she's the worst auctioneer at giving an accurate estimate of what stuff might sell for. And now it's even worse because she's an occasional presenter too.
It counts doesn't it?
OK, then, Four Rooms.
whats four rooms?
she works hard on the auction stand i think - gives it some hard sell and does that market trader trick of starting high then coming down a lot to get the bidding going
100 umberaum 200 umberaum.
The UK one is even worse in a good way
Antiques Roadshow is the one and only.
All others are pretenders to the crown. Pfft.
Have you been watching a lot of daytime telly? ska invita
if bargain hunt doesnt win this poll it'll confirm my worst fears about urban. my mum votes Flog It by the way...oh, and antiques roadshow is damaged goods
I liked Cash in the Attic (or whichever one it was) when they replaced the host with Jennie Bond. You could really see the simmering loathing she had for everyone around her, and there was always a sense that at any moment she might finally snap and scream, 'I used to work with royalty! And now I'm pretending to give a fuck about your grandmother's brass bed pan and whether or not it will help you buy a memorial bench for your wife's cat! Fuck this shit, I hope you all drown in horse effluent!'
what do people think of Paul Martin? He deserves his own poll...ive got the feeling he splits opinion
i sense a traumatic past episode (in his life, not of flog it)
everyone voting for Antiques Roadshow is going on a list
The answer is Antiques Roadshow. So can we just stop discussing this please.
typically arrogant answer coming from an antiques roadshow watcher
I like him.... but so does my Mother and that's somehow not right.
a no nonsense auctioneer
Typically deluded answer from a fan of flog it.
for the record i really dont like flog it...paul martin creeps me out a bit....though he did do a good feature on the differences between inlays and marquetry on todays show
Cheeky Tim Wonnacott...
"I like that, well done"
theres the odd mild inuendo of his that gets through (usually involving a pair of something)....I like Tim a lot, but am just praying he has no skeletons in the closet...that would be too sad.
I once saw an episode where Tim met another dealer dressed pretty much exactly like him: bow tie, waistcoat, even some glasses - it really made them both look a bit stupid - its a good look if you're the only one wearing it, but when everyone is doing it it looks a bit stupid
