Vids (TV Programme)

Post by dste » Tue Jul 01, 2014 4:01 pm

Does anyone at all remember Vids?

It was shown on Channel 4 at about 2am around fifteen years ago. Was funny back in the day though I imagine that when I go to watch it now it may not be as funny as I remember it.

Yes I remember it, I thought it was funny at the time, but haven't seen anything of it since then.

I do remember it & I'd remembered rightly it shared the same time when Bits was on!

Yay, people who remember it.

Yeah, I think that Bits was on around the same time.

I remember watching this show after falling in the door from the pub and stuffing copious amounts of tea and toast into my face whilst channel hopping. Cant remember a thing about it only the two lads who presented were either Scottish or Geordies...

People I knew used to speak highly of it though and make a point of staying up until the small hours to watch.

The hairy beardy one was indeed Scottish (makes sense as I believe the show was filmed in a real shop in Kilmarnock) but the manic blonde one was actually Welsh.

I have a dvd with a dozen or so eps on. It was Nige (mad welsh one) and Steff (tall scottish one).

Loved this back in the day - after reading this topic I looked up some episodes on YouTube. While the first series is finding its feet, the rest still hold up and are very funny. Time for a revamp including games reviews perhaps? What happened to the two presenters?
