IMHO, Stephen Fry has always been a pompous twit, never have rated him. Hey Ho, that is only my opinion.

Good afternoon:

Could the above comments be considered as "shooting the messenger?".

What about commenting on his claim. Are they valid or not?

Cheers

Have to say I have always totally respected Stephen Fry agree with the full article.

A lot of programmes are merely a step up from slapstick, and the most successful are aimed at younger audiences either children or older teenagers.

He is not saying there is anything wrong with childishness, why would he having been involved with Blackadder etc, merely that alternatives should be on offer too and those alternatives would benefit from crossing audience demographics, not pertain to a few. The childness within Blackadder took an awful lot of intellect to write and I for one loved them for their portrayal of a warped historical view.

I would say his claim is right. But then again some of his tv apperances are shall we say "childishly bigoted" . I think helen mirren and him pee in the same pot. So who's paid their wages recently?
