I think the fact it's on BBC3 says everything.

 

Some good shows, some appalling guff.

Last night's first episode of Psychobitches on Sky Arts was brilliant.

Game of Thrones... wow...but but...just wow....

 

Superb episode.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I've been waiting for that episode for a while to see my fiancée's reaction to events but she accidentally saw a spoiler online.

I have recorded it and will probably watch it tomorrow. Enjoyed last weeks about Saffron Walden.

I thought it was really good - well worth a watch. Saw our apartments and the view we have is very similar to that shown quite a few times from Castle Hill - only, thank goodness, we're lower down so I don't have to tackle the steep hill every day

Caught that by accident as it came on straight after Spring Watch. I thought it was well worth watching.

Huddersfield is like Manchester, only with nice buildings, nice countryside and street lights.

I think I'll give The Call Centre a miss.

 

 

I watched it late last night because I couldn't get to sleep. It is actually pretty good.

Good, positive coverage of RL, too, with an (unbiased) explanation of how the game came about, plus Big Eorl explaining some of the history, and Nick Crane getting smashed (in slow motion) by Giants players. The 'facts' Crane used about the game - numbers of supporters worldwide, number of players, how big it is in Australia etc - were all positive. Shows what you get if someone with no axe to grind features the sport.

The whole porgramme made me quite sympathetic towards Huddersfield, which I never thought would be possible!

If you ever wanted confirmation of your suspicion that the BBC is hopelessly overstaffed, you only had to watch the Queen's visit to Broadcasting House this morning. When you see the thousands there and think that are probably at least the same number at Salford, it's amazing how it can still manage to turn out news presenters without any obvious character or personality.

 The output from the BBC on a daily basis is huge, I would imagine it would require an army of staff to do that.

 

Back on topic, saw the first in the present series of Case Histories last night. Great stuff from the BBC. Also have recently subscribed to Netflix on the basis that they have new seasons of House of Cards and Arrested Development. Really impressed with the software (I watch it via an Apple tv) and the range of tv series and movies they have available.

I also got Netflix recently and have to agree – I watch it mainly through the Xbox and is quite impressive. In honesty I did sign up when it first launched in the UK and thought the selection was a bit poor, but Arrested Development brought me back and it has impressed me enough to stick around for a little while longer this time.

 

(BTW Sev, are you aware how easy it is to access the US Netflix, even on Apple TV? A much bigger choice and Netflix don’t seem too bothered if you do it as you are still paying them an amount of money to access their product. Won’t post the details here – maybe already posted too much…! I’m sure you are clever enough to work out how to find them if you want to though).
