    I was taping it to keep till they bring the DVD’s out even thought I have the originals ones I bought in the full 2.35:1 aspect ratio. I though soon as I started the tape I hope Frank Skinner is not on tonight. It is bad enough to talk over the titles but as you say take the michael out of it shows nether ITV or Skinner has any respect for the viewers. The place for this banter was in his show. How would he like it if someone came and talked over the end of his credits and did the same to him?

    I'm not taping it either but this now happens on most channels because they want to ruin it for people taping it. Their pathetic excuse is, "We want to show you which channel your on and what's on next". WAKE UP, *%$$^# Tv channels! WE already know the flippin channel we are on because of all the damn logos everywhere and nearly everybody has access to Digiguide, papers, Tv guides and EPG's (when they damn well work ie., "Further schedule information is not available" - Sky), so we know what's on next. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    As for Frank Skinner with his crap jokes, this sort of thing makes me hate the person doing it and refuse to watch their programmes. What a right plonker this guy is!:mad:

    Was it the Special Edition? If so then there was a new ending.

    It is stupid of the TV companies to take the mickey out of their own programs - I watch Babylon 5 on Bravo sometimes and they always take the mick out of during the end credits - don't they realise that the people watching are Babylon 5 fans?! That is WHY they are watching!! :rolleyes:

    Lex,

    No it wasn't the special edition, I remember when I was in the 1st year at the school (1984), people saying about the choir doing ROTJ singing!

    There is one channel that takes the mick when the are advertising a program, which is self defeating, like saying this program is a load of rubbish you would be a fool to watch it.
    By the way ITV I have just turned good time Frankie off for his little stunt at the end of ROTJ.

    I think FS was delibrately brought in to mess up(!) the endings on the trilogy, to prevent taping. I had half a mind (only half though) to phone the 1-800-THX number at the end and say ITV UK have butchered, defaced and resized the end of the film :mad:

    I could not agree more with this statement as I too am a loyal fan to Babylon 5 and find it an insulting moronic action on their part. Another thing that really annoys me too (I've quoted this on another thread) is the sonic blasting we get when the flipping adverts come on too. :mad: :mad:

    frank skinner really is a pathetic nob and about as interesting as dried vomit, it made me laugh when he brought out his autobiography last year and the paper's serialised it... I couldn't believe anyone was interested in that complete ******!

    you maybe onto something regarding Lucas tho, I bet he would be ****ed off about talking over the credits... I'm sure it must be in the small print of his contract with ITV regarding the screening of the star wars films. And as we all know Lucas' lawyers take no prisoners.

    Goodness me what a reaction - I thought he was quite funny but we're all entitled to our opinions of course. As to the point of view that "it spoiled the movie/ruins it for my kids/prevents taping" -
    a) if you like it that much you always rent it/buy it on tape/dvd, and
    b) adverts for cars/soap/catfood intergate quite nicely with the film then do they?

    It was not necessary for Frank Skinner to mock Return of the Jedi as the film makes a fool of itself quite adequately already.

    Anything inside the M25 counts as London these days.:D

    Which makes 'my' actual home just 2 miles outside London.

    When I had the laserdiscs, I watched the 3 films one after the other at least once a month without fail. The 3 originals just take me back to a youth mispent in cheap flea pit cinemas. However, IMO, episode II is the pick of the 5 so far.

    I'm a Frank Skinner fan, seen him live as well. Very funny bloke. But whoever talked over the credits at the end, it's ONLY the end credits and it is a "pirate" version you have on tape which you will replace with the DVD when it comes out so what's the big deal? It's a temporary copy! Yes it would've been nice if he didn't speak over the credits, but then you also had to edit out the adverts as well so......

    Flame me, I don't care :D

    Anything inside the M25 counts as "Greater London" not "London" proper. Basically anything on a tube stop up to and including zone 6. If you work in Greater London and not London proper and you work in public service, then you don't get the full London Weighting. Half of those stops in Zone 6 are definitely nowhere near London anyway. You can tell from their smell if nothing else.

    Frank Skinner is on a channel that still allows him to 'sing' during his show... as they obviously have little concern about that, talking over ROTJ end credits would have seemed of little consequence to them.

    I'd actually be interested in the viewing figures for ITVs latest showing of the trilogy. I bet it's not nearly as high as some might think.

    I doubt they pulled in many viewers at all... apart from maybe ep 1 which some people may not have got round to seeing.
