E's the man
Channel 4 entertainment boss Kevin Lygo has brought E4 into the world
under the influence of corporate Capricorn, narcotic Neptune, Pythonesque
Pluto and plain old bad taste.
The greatest weakness in the horoscope, and bringing deserved
ill-repute, is a disgustingly bad taste Scorpio Moon coming off
the opposition of grungy Saturn. This looks like Banzai, the UK-
made spoof Japanese game show, containing such delights as "old
lady wheelchair chicken challenge" and "spot the silicone
breasts". The horoscope's strengths include a sexy and fun Venus-
Mars combination in the emotional water signs of Pisces and
Scorpio, giving it a sentimental soapy, love story mix. Think
Friends and ER, with the new series of these playing on E4 before
C4. To do well, E4 needs to develop new programmes along these
lines, and shouldn't totally abandon its conventional, romantic
side in favour of off-the-wall shock and cool.
