ten years younger

Another great Jamie's School Dinners last night - that's the best TV programme I've seen in years. But the show which always gets us talking in the flat is the show which preceded it in the schedules last night, Ten Years Younger, which I've complained about before. I only saw a few minutes of it last night, but enough to make me really violently angry. Sadly I only went and spoke to Vic about it. Looking back, I should have thought up some extremely witty insults about the show's host, Nicky Hambleton-Jones, blogged them, and claimed the credit. Even if I had, mind, I would have been beaten to it by Charlie Brooker, who got this to press a full week and half ago; brilliant stuff.

"She's slightly synthetic and ethereal; the ghost of a listless graphic designer. Weirder still, for someone fronting a show about facelifts, her own face is almost entirely featureless. She looks like Mrs Spoon from Button Moon. She looks like a baby new potato in glasses. She looks like Michael Jackson's mugshot snap. But most of all she looks like a Crayola sketch drawn by a very very stupid child. There's a Ten Years Younger spin-off book in the shops right now: the front cover features a simple cartoon drawing of Nicky Hambleton-Jones, and curiously, it looks more like her than her actual photo does. She's a freak. How DARE she tell other people what to do with their faces when she hasn't grown one of her own?"

What i really hate about the shameful '10 Years Younger' is the way they present the drive to be attractive as if it is the LAW. I mean it's fine if you are interested in that kind of thing, but it's not even presenting anything new other than the traditional 'no-one will love you unless you are beautiful' message us women are so familar with. And the way they treat some of the participants - 'what do you mean you've been caring for your terminally ill mother for the past five years - just look at those wrinkles and split ends - you must submit to botulism!'
Thanks for gladdening our hearts C4!

It's only going to get worse - with the population ageing, incomes rising, and health improving, elderly women's horrible skin will be the weak link. This means vastly more cosmetic surgery - not a nice thought. Given people's continued obsession with looks, they're surely prepared to put up with a bit of abuse and pulling-about if it allows them to vainly think that younger people will start to "look at them" again.

Yeah this programme is depressing- especially the last episode where the woman's child was actually AFRAID of her after she'd had all that surgery, and it's no surprise. Furthermore her mother-in-law sounded a nightmare, first of all complaining about her daughter-in-law's looks then saying 'Oh are you sure about this?' when she opted for surgery.
