    Should television critics only review programmes they enjoy?  Strictly it's a blog rather than a review and the comments underneath it are not too complementary.  Basing ones opinions of TV programmes on comments posted on line is an interesting one. Would anyone watch the BBC if they read POV and took many of the comments board?  Of course. It can go either way of course. I have often watched progammes recommended on these boards.

    I would not classify Andre Rieu as art at all...just light entertainment.  And neither would I but according to the schedules he seems to feature quite a lot with quite a bit of other light entertainment. There is very little true classical art and what there is seems to be repeated several times. Also I would resent paying to watch adverts.  That's tosh! I've some excellent ballets, operas and proper classical music on Sky Arts2. Portrait Artist of the Year on Sky Arts was also very good.

    Some may not like Andre Rieu but he brings pleasure to many people which is fine by me.

    There is no denying that his concerts have brought classical, and waltz, music to a vast audience.

    I sometimes wonder if his critics have actually seen one of his concerts.

    The one performed at the Schoenbrunn Palace is highly enjoyable.

    I thought series 1 of Broadchurch was awful...but that's me for you  Me too, So this 2nd series doesnt even register. Cant think of a worse drama that has been so hyped and critically acclaimed. To me, it just shows up that the critics can be biased by friendship or Oxbridge links, Bunkum. I only watched as it had scenes shot in Clevedon near where I fish. Glad I never bumped into the ridiculous Tennant man or I might have compelled to push his ranting character into the soup

    Some may not like Andre Rieu but he brings pleasure to many people which is fine by me.  And fine with me too but Sky can't persuade me that he has anything to do with art although he may be a fine entertainer.

    Andre Rieu, apart from bring a violinist, conducts an orchestra of 50-60 accomplished musicians and singers.
