Smith showed up on a daphne du Maurier adaptation last night
I rate cumberbatch I used to fancy the ass off his mam in th sixties
I just think he should expand his range beyond anal upper class types although parade's end is excellent

... television broadcasting was almost entirely in shades of orange, brown and beige in those days. :D


Surely, beige is a shade of brown. No?

Does anyone watch any of those American programmes on Discovery and/or Nat Geo that are basically people going about their jobs?

There's cake making, pawn shop, car tuning/ruining, building custom bikes, making guns, tuna fishing, other fishing, driving a truck, lumber jacks, going to storage, antiques and somehow they all end up the same show.

Moonshiners was a good one.

Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Restoration Man, American Pickers, Cajan Pawn Stars, Swamp People, Axmen, Ice Road Truckers, Gold Rush.... I get to watch them all at work...Bangla Bangers was a fave from a while ago.
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!

Such variety. Look at the Food Network. They seem to have only two varieties of show.
1. People making cupcakes.
2. People going to diners and eating unreasonably large portions of junk food, while making fake gang signs with their fingers and overusing the word 'awesome'.

That's different, I watched the first two episodes of Doomsday Preppers, it's amusing. Paranoid Americans stock-piling a decades' worth of food and guns.

I just have one question for them; they're preparing for "what if", well what if "what if" never happens?

Still, funny old world.

Did you think so? Apart from a couple of performances I thought it was a bit clunky. Although most of the reviews this morning were positive so I could be out of step!

Finaly watched both series of Game Of Thrones, very impressive, good story, northerners, bad guys, good guys, guys who are bad and good, blood, gore, humour and sex. All boxes ticked!

And Wilko Johnson.

The next series can only live up to the last one if John Cooper Clarke and Karl Harrison are in it.

So many people have told me to get into Game of Thrones, but I just don't get it myself. Watched the first two or three episodes a few times in a vein attempt to get into it, but to no avail. Shame as I do want to like it (it looks superb on Blu Ray), but just one of those things I guess.

My current obsession is Breaking Bad. No spoilers please, but just finished Season 3 and I thought the last two episodes were some of the best tv I have ever seen. Getting Season 4 at the weekend and am quite excited.

Last night on BBC4, More old Jews telling Jokes. Great fun, and surely one of the cheapest programmes to make there's ever been. :D

I'm really enjoying Michael Portillo's Continental train journeys. Amazing scenery, loads of historical content and some interesting characters.
