Our plans for a quiet Christmas include trying to catch up on the following shows:

 

American Horror Story - Coven

Witches of East End (the wife got that out me as a compromise for the next one)

Continuum (with the lovely Rachel Nichols)

Modern Family (with the lovely Sophia Vergara)

Elementary (with the lovely Lucy Liu)

Grimm

 

We'll probably catch up on one or two then wonder where the two weeks have gone!

It might be great, but if no one watches....

Very true.  They have had issues with sound where the male characters trying to London-ise their accents have become mumblers drowned out by the other set noises but that's not a huge issue if you pay attention.

To be fair, I really liked it too!


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!

Shed some tears watching Garry Barlow in Afghanistan - and what a fantastic concert everyone enjoyed. The soldiers taking part will certainly have some great memories to tell in future years. One guy was very emotional after Garry presented him with a guitar. I'll be watching it again that's for sure.

Never seen an episode (not really my thing) but there is talk it will come back as a co-production with one of the streaming sites - Netflix or Lovefilm, can't remember which. This will probably be the future of a lot of TV shows I think.

 

I don't think the BBC should chase the ratings for shows like this, especially as for a bit of the series it was up against things like I'm A Celeb.

They are stuck between a rock and a hard place  on ratings.

 

They get a lot of criticism for chasing ratings, but also criticism for wasting money.  If ratings are poor then are they wasting money?

Good documentary on BBC4 tonight at 10pm. Footage the last UK Sex Pistols gig in Huddersfield (a benefit for striking fireman's kids incidentally). Unseen footage and all that. Think it's a Julian Temple job.

Wasn't that Christmas Eve 77? I was too young to go (11) a couple of mates genuinely went. The reason I say genuinely is that, that gig is one event that everyone you talk to said they went to. It was a bit like Beefy getting 149 at Headingley in 81, everyone was there that day also.

Just read up it was Christmas day, that accounts for why ( Boothy) my mate had a lift from his dad in his Hillman Avenger from Ponte. The other mate Vic who I got to know as an adult lived in Huddersfield.

That's a good shout Jono. I'm a million miles removed from my memories as a kid niw but I'm sure I have a very distant memory of a Clash song about such people.
