the feckin soccer world cup has ruined my summer viewing. I don't know whether I'm coming or going with Holby.

 

I'll fill you in...Surgeon A is having a tumultuous love life, while Executive A is really feeling the strain. Nurse C is getting friendly with Doctor B. Consultant X's partner has a terminal illness and maybe its time they healed that rift. Shy and stammering junior Dr Y meanwhile fancies other junior Dr Z who likes a drink or two and ends up with unsavoury characters.

 

Etc etc


No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

On a boring Saturday evening, (I know! I'm getting old!) there was nothing worth watching, so I tuned in to "The Men Who Made Us Spend" on BBC2. Made in conjunction with the OU, I think, but it looked at the marketing of products from Listerine and Zantac to Vitamin Water and moved on to the use of HGH (yes, Human Growth Hormone!) as a means of preventing ageing and finished with a Las Vegas sales symposium (?) for the anti-ageing industry. Dear Lord above! Talk about a bunch of lying, dissembling, two-faced ********s, I couldn't believe they had the nerve to claim scientific backing for the snake oil they are pushing. And people are buying it. Billions of dollars worth of it. Why didn't I think of selling flavoured water as a health aid and making a huge fortune? I blame my teachers. ;)

I watched a bit of a programme earlier on Channel 5, 'Britain's biggest Holiday love rats' or something. Cracking stuff :).

 

Then Young Ones on GOLD with The Damned in it, quality.

Watched 2 episodes of Orphan Black at the weekend. Seemed very good and certainly worth watching more.

And that's season 1 finished. Thoroughly recommended!

Tonight, ahaead of the Games, BBC1 are showing a programme called 'The Seven Wonders of the Commonwealth' including a section on PNG. Just a heads-up for those who like to spot RL shirts.

It's just a downmarket version of 'Let the Blood run free'. ;)

Stetsons off to Rich Hall  and the BBC. His California documentary on BBC4 was great TV.

Recorded it, but not watched it yet. His previous documentaries have all been excellent.

A bit late to the party but we've been really enjoying '8 out of 10 cats does Countdown'. Much better than the real thing (both Countdown and 8 out of 10 cats) and I've discovered the delights of Rachel Riley, much to my wife's annoyance.

Anybody else watching Utopia?

 

I really like it. There again, I've always been partial to a good conspiracy theory.
