I enjoyed Backchat an awful lot - maybe more than I should have done. I'd rather forego Boots & All and have Backchat extended from 30 mins to one hour - this would mean that Rod Studd can continue asking difficult/needling/ridiculous questions without sounding as if he's hyper-ventilating and on his way to a full-blown anxiety attack.
The main problem of this show is that, somewhere along the line, the Sky producer convinced himself that the presence of Stevo was vital to the show's success - leading to the incessant, phoney Punch and Judy flavour of Stevo & Studd's exchanges. With the eradication of the rugby league press from our national newspapers, this is a show that can at last redress the balance, even if only a little.
As for Biffy Clyro, I've just had to look them/he/she/it up... I thought, for one horrible moment, this might be a reference to the love child of Buffy St Marie and Miley Cyrus...
Agree with this. The Stevo element is what drags Backchat down, otherwise its about the only decent debate we get on rugby league anywhere.
I assume Biffy Clyro provide the music to one of the Sky RL programmes? Even having looked them up, I'm none the wiser, except they appear to be some kind of music combo from Scotland. No doubt my children have heard of them
