    FYI: Room 101 is a show on BBC2 where "celebs" put things they don't like (or want to get rid of) in to "Room 101"

    Harry Hill has just been on, and has put God in there :eek: :D

    Now, this will provoke absolutely no reaction here, but I'm just curious what others might think a public figure doing this on TV would provoke in their country?

    Maybe nothing, maybe something...

    I didn't see the program: what else did he want to put in there?

    According to my TV guide, the show was a repeat – and I certainly don't remember a furore from when it was aired the first time.

    Remember the reaction when Anne Robinson put the Welsh in Room 101? :rolleyes:

    Well, we are both in the UK, and I did say it wouldn't cause any reaction ;)

    so this show is simply celebrities slagging things? awesome.

    maybe we can import the idea into the US and ruin it.

    Saw it first time around, laughed my t*ts off at the god thing, Hill has been a bit quiet lately, been getting a little mainstream. I remember him as deeply surreal and very, very funny.

    It won't even cause a ripple.

    You mean, like "Spitting Images"? (How many remember the woefully failed effort to bring that one here.)

    Anyway, if a celebrity made a remark of that kind in the US of A, he'd immediately become a celebrity for an entire new reason. Should he fail to be struck by lightening bolts, the lightening bolt industry would be called in to fabricate the synthetic equivalent.

    Professional protesters would no doubt camp out on his lawn.
    God help him doubly if he lived in Florida.

    Celebs sit and chat about the things they don't like and if the presenter and audience agree then the object/item is sent to room 101 (a place they can't come back from).

    Tracy Emin was crazy on 101 where she decided to get rid of cocaine - not for any of the usual reasons (although she did hate it) - but because it made people spend the whole time in the toilet.

    What an annoying concept. Which only raises the question: Has Room 101 ever been sent to Room 101?

    Yes, Stephen Fry, much earlier episode.

    He wanted to banish those those things that celebrate/dwell on 'bad' things ... and then replace them with 'good' things ... original iMac being one of his suggstions.

    As one of the 0.03% of Americans who have even heard of Stephen Fry, I should congratulate him. Virtue always having a price, he had to appear on the program to do it, I suppose.
