Review: 'OMG! With Peaches Geldof'


Author: The Chained Wolf

I was dreading to hear what Peaches (daughter of Bob) Geldof would ask a bunch of furries – in the end it was more what Dom Joly said which was annoying.

For those outside of the UK, OMG! With Peaches Geldof is a TV show on the digital network ITV2 which does not have a good reputation. It is considered by many to be cheap, tacky, low-brow infotainment, as is most of ITV2’s output.

It was this cheap material that I had to wade through before they got to furries. For most of the time I as flicking between channels hoping that these fame-obsessed idiots would soon get off the screen. As a result I did not have high expectations of their coverage of the furry fandom.

I was expecting the usual stuff about having sex in fursuits to be trotted out. However, I was pleasantly surprised.

  1. im a little irritated at how much they slandered US furries – we’re the exact same – but it was a positive move PR-wise in the UK. Oddly enough this show wont make it overseas into the eyes of Americans, because of said slanderous nature. Though i think i may understand where UK/US rivalries stem from now, when their own media is this disrespectful and elitist.

    • I am amused by this imagery of UK/US furry diplomatic ties being strained.

      Worry not Mr KitFox, the UK furry community also felt the comments made were inappropriate. 🙂
