Just watched this show on Channel 4 (UK), and it really altered my perception of my own life. I never thought I was 'poor' until I watched this show; because I actually was bought up on the same estate as the poor girl on the show.

Anyway...any views or anything? Did it change your opinion of the other end of the wealth divide?

Just thought it would make an interesting conversation...if anyone saw it that is.

He's just a poor boy. From a poor family, I think.

I saw the ad a few times, but I was out tonight so I didn't watch it.

I can tell the rich girl is just going to piss me off anyway.

i used to think i was poor. but i have more than i need, and i feel bad about feeling that way. just because my parents don't buy me a custom guitar for my birthday, doesn't make me poor. Complaining of it makes me poor of spirit.

I doubt it.

On a side note, does anyone else find thunderbolts and lightning to be very very frightening?

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

The rich one annoyed me.

But that goes without saying.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

I watched about thirty seconds of the rich girl talking and I wanted to punch her for being so ignorant. She was basically explaining how she thought poor people were scummy...

Needless to say I switched channels quickly.

Glaswegian version is better...imo

I don't know what is, but if it's a band that covered it then your opinion is wrong because no one does Queen better than Queen.

I watched the whole thing, it sort of had no point what so ever to it. Just another attempt of channel 4 of trying to copy panaroma.

The rich girl goes to a school in the same foundation as mine, she's been suspended and she's not allowed to come back for sixth form because she made her school look so bad.

Then you should have watched the whole thing, because the actually turned out to be really nice; she'd just had pretty awful parents - the ultra-snobby and stuffy types - and it was good to see how well she turned out.

Meh. Plenty of 'poor' people have a bigger TV than me. In many cases, it's not that they don't have enough money; it's that they choose to spend what they have on booze/fags/tellys etc.
My 21" CRT works fine, I'd rather buy better food than pay £500 for a big ass flat screen.

Agreed. That's what I found so annoyign watching the Hugh Fearnly chicken programme, when you have these people claiming they don't have enough money to buy a decent chicken, well if you didn't have a 35" telly, and eat nothing but crisps and Carling, you could afford good food.

just finished it

they both annoyed me in different ways - it's just a shame everyone doesn't strike a fine balance between the two

the posh girl's mum wound me up a lot though - she needed a good old reality check

+1.

Within about two minutes, I wanted to smash my TV. She got better at the end though, when she realised the impact of the things she's said before. I think she was just shocked at how polite and friendly the 'chav' was, her prejudices were blown apart.

Read "Rich Dad Poor Dad" if you want to get more in depth, they're a great set of books.
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.
