Just been reminded of a favourite TV scene from my youth.

Tomasz Schafernaker (BBC weatherman) has had a haircut.

Mrs Moose is disappointed, she says he’s lost his porn star looks.

Yes my mam is a big Tomasz fan ( hard not to be I admit ) and was chuffed he had a haircut after interrupting the weather for ages telling him to get his hair cut .

Barkskins,  on the National Geographic Channel (Didn't realise they did 'drama' shows on this channel.)

It is set in 1600's New France (Canada) and follows a French village trying to establish itself whilst those dastardly British try and stir up trouble between them and the native tribes.  Slow, bloody and a good watch. (Barkskin was the nick name given to lumberjacks).

Jam Eater  1.(noun. jam eeter) A Resident of Whitehaven or Workington. Offensive.  It is now a term of abuse that both towns of West Cumbria use for each other especially at Workington/Whitehaven rugby league derby matches.

I watched  the new All Creatures Great and Small ready to be disappointed as a pale imitation , but I was pleasantly surprised . It was very good and in keeping with the original 

I may give that a chance. A daunting challenge for the new cast, considering how well-loved the original series was.

I gave the first episode a try at lunchtime, and it is far, far better than you'd expect for a Channel 5 programme. I especially liked the portrayal of Siegfried. The appearance of the old theme tune at the end could have jarred if it had been a worse adaptation, but didn't.

And, of course, the scenery's wonderful.

Late to the game and it has already been mentioned... But The Boys is really good!  

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!

We’re now watching The Handmaid’s Tale. Joseph Fiennes plays one of the bad guys. The Fiennes brothers are excellent at playing sociopathic fascists.

Just watching the first episode of season 2. Funny, nasty, intriguing.

I've watched the first two episodes - very good so far.

We love it.

How on earth  ( no pun intended ) do they do all the antigravity scenes?

Anyone else think Matt is a dead ringer for Danny McGuire?

Excellent news! I've got all the episodes on DVD but as I've discovered with Doctor Who, it is so much easier to watch them on Britbox without all the faff of swapping discs. It's fast becoming my favourite streaming service, absolute TV nostalgia heaven. I've started watching The Prisoner, which I've never seen, and for those mourning the loss of Diana Rigg today, they've just added a load of episodes of The Avengers too.
