New series Frankie is complete rubbish.

Cardboard cutout characters that are entirely without redeeming features, unrealistic and unbelievable plot lines and totally inaccurate portrayal of District Nursing.

Apart from that.....

 

New series Frankie is excellent.

Bizarrely after it plumbed new depths of turgidity, predictable yet totally unrealistic storylines and shockingly poor acting last night Mrs Shadow's first reaction was "there's no way that girl would have had a district nurse visiting her"

My suggestion that the accuracy of health team call planning was the least of the problems with the entire bag o shoite fell on deaf ears.

Exactly

The insides of their houses looked like something out of grand designs

And there just happened to be a chapel in the woods

And the king just happened to be riding by

Etc etc

The female lead has the look of Ingrid Bergman about her

Whilst I wouldn't consider the licence fee a waste of money, I would consider showing the Confederations Cup a waste of BBC One's airtime.

I agree. I would be interesting to find out what the viewing figures were for it compared to the usual time slots.

Decent programme by Rich Hall about Texas last night.  A proper rambling monologue.  No one went on a journey, the content and presenter were engaging and it was quite funny in parts.

Missed that, but he's usually good. He doesn't do many of these programmes but he did one a few years ago about Western movies which was excellent.
