Five likes to showcase programmes about freaks. It will claim that they are documenting the struggle for a normal life of some two-headed girl, or guy with 10 legs. In fact, five is just exploiting the fact that people like to look at people with serious deformities, in a way they can tell themselves is acceptable cause it's a "documentary".
Five also shows old movies during the day that nobody wants to watch, and occasionally a good on like terminator.
John sits at home on tuesdays and watches the afternoon movie at 14:00 on Five.
John realises how loser-y he is later that day, so he switches on the TV and watche a "documentary" called "the guy with a tricycle for an arm" on five; which makes him feel better about his own life, although watching Five made him feel slightly dirty and unclean.
