It’s been pretty much three years to the day since I bought my flatscreen LCD Sony Bravia TV and already I’m thinking of replacing it. Or I was.

The Bravia was one of those impulse purchases I don’t normally get suckered for.

They’re noisy, smelly, dirty bastards and I’ll never understand why anyone would want one in their home, slobbering over the sofa, chewing up the remote controls and trying to fuck the cheese plant in the corner of the living room whenever the vicar visits.
