I hate the Travel Channel by ZERO on 25 August 2003 7:34am
 
Does anyone here think the Travel Channel sucks? All they every do is go to Las Vegas or other completely uncultured places. I think they should call it the Proletarian Tourist Network. And now they are even airing programs about poker championships and monster trucks. Monster trucks?!?!?! Distgusting!

yeah it is really stupid, they hardly ever go to 'proper' places that have a real and interesting culture, they are giving out the wrong message about travel. I also feel the same about the National Geographic Channel sometimes, it has loads of prgrammes about crocodiles and elephants and stuff like that, surely they shuld show these things on a nature channel like Animal Planet.

I agree re: the Travel Channel. Programs such as "Top 10 Bathrooms in Las Vegas" don't really offer much insight into anything. And even when they do have shows that do have some merit, they are done in such a sensationalistic style that it drives me crazy. In an hourlong program they must say "Here's a secret" at least 20 times. The channel has so much potential; it's a shame that it's all hype and no substance.
