Haha! I must have missed that. It's the finals week this week so it's all the previous winning dishes. While it's nice to see all the efforts, you do have to watch the previous episodes to see how they did most of it. It's interesting but it is done a bit haphazardly as a programme. And it is on for too long, weeks and weeks of heats.

Better than Food Glorious Food though, "hello, I've made a quiche and I'm old", "that's a nice quiche, you're through".


that geordie woman with the beehive has star quality

but as yo say: dross.

I think masterchef has been a let down. There'll never be another Thomasina Miers

I watched last week's Paul Hollywood Bread, but it was identical to the Lorraine Pascale programme that proceeded it. So I didn't bother with this week.

What I have yet to find out with Food Glorious Food is, what happens in the next round? I think with it being a Simon Cowell err, creation I'm too hard wired to the tedious formula. Is there a boot camp and judge's houses? I'd watch it to see Loyd Grossman's house...

Do they have to bake a ginger sponge with a Michael Jackson theme? Will it go to Breadlock?

Another quality chunk of Richard P.Feynman - Take the World from another point of view.

The picture quality is not as good as The Pleasure of finding things out (also highly recommended), but the programme is still very interesting and enjoyable. It also includes a conversation between Feynman and Fred Hoyle.

Very good - obviously their (also very good) series about the Indian Hill Railways was well enough received for them to do more in that vein.

Just watched the first season of Breaking Bad.  Everyone said it was good, and boy they were right.

 

Bryan Cranston is great, showing what a good actor he is (previously only seen him in Malcolm in the Middle).


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 was rather disappointed by the ending to The Walking Dead, I've also two episodes of Revolution on record that I'm still not too fussed about watching!

One for folks of a certain age - the quite peculiar Eighties TV thriller 'Dead Head' is finally released on DVD. Starring Denis Lawson, Lindsey Duncan, Simon Callow and Norman Beaton, amongst others.

Goes without saying that I think the new series of Doctor Who is very entertaining. :)

 

Ice Warriors!

 

(Yes, yes, fellow 'Who' nerds, I know this is actually the second half of series 7 and not really a 'new' series as such. ^_^  )

 

I've restrained myself from starting a seperate thread about it, but this being the show's 50th anniversary year, you'd better brace yourselves for me getting a bit giddy about that round November time. :D

 

Zygons!!

I still enjoy Coast. Last night's show featured some ladies from Cornwall knitting very unusual items whilst keeping themselves incognito by wearing fancy masks. They then dot their efforts around the area for whoever wants one.

Coast almost always has something interesting for the viewer to discover, but some of the presenters are trying far to hard to be 'characters'.

proper characters like "jonny morris" never had to put on a false over act like the presenters of today, they were just natrualy engaging.
