Channel Five may have preposterously tacky documentaries and low grade entertainment shows, and is all very silly and populist, but it does have good films. Channel Five shows loads of films, lots from the golden era of the seventies, as well as more recent stuff of the sort that used to get shows on the other channels, but now hardly makes an appearance. It's not bad really and it's free. Oh and the news is quite good as well, at least as good as ITV (although that is not saying much). The football is quite good also, with some inane commentary from John Barnes and co. Don't knock it.
