Search - QVC, Ideal World - especially at Christmas with their overexcited presenters showcasing Bing Crosby Crooning Tinsel Bedecked Bulldogs available in black or white or pack of two for only £24.99.

Their exercise products - wow! Check the Inversion Machine - being strapped upside down to a table is good for you?!

Who knew that Amolite was such a precious stone? So informative!

Not ten, not fifteen, but 20 stay-sharp knives PLUS free juicer, PLUS free peeler, PLUS free grater PLUS another 20 free knives for only £35.95? (Plus p&p at £2.99)

Some of the presenters are like salve to some lonely souls too...

I am NOT the only person with an opinion on this!

Yes I may be ill, yes I may be lonely, and I suppose I could watch Loose Women instead but no! I prefer the comfort of these nice ladies in a box in the corner of my room.

i LOVE shopping channels. Ive never bought anything from them and never will but it fun to watch them try to fill 10 minutes trying to talk about a necklace. they put it on, they take off, they get out the little metal ruler and measure all of its dimensions, they put it on again and pair it with other peices, they try to get all scientific while explaining why created stones are better than natural stones etc etc etc

destroy - those coked up tech guys selling portable dvd players.

I watched QVC once for 15 minutes and wound up with my current set of stainless steel cookware. (Really good stuff, W. Puck Signature Collection, 17 pieces for $150.) So, classic, but approach with caution. (I've never watched a shopping channel since then -- 7 years now.)
