Just binge watched all seven series of "The West Wing" again. Some great actors amongst that cast. Then, after looking for more Aaron Sorkin stuff I have started watching "The Newsroom". Looking very promising so far. This missed me whyen it first came out but must admit Jeff Daniels plays a good part.

I enjoyed the newsroom, really interesting take on the real news of the time.

We've been re watching Spooks since lockdown started. I only picked it up in 2007, after I met my now wife, so early series were new to me. Series 10 was completed on Saturday evening, so just the film left. 

It surprised me how little it felt to have aged given it started in 2002, with the only things that really dated it to me were the cars, mobile phones and a fixation with boot cut jeans for the lead characters. 

Having never seen one episode till lockdown, me and the missus have just watched the 86th and final episode. Was going to watch the film but it's been taken off i player.

Absolutely loved it and agree about the boot cut jeans; just seem weird these days.

Hadn't noticed the film was on I player, we have it on dvd so never looked! Certainly doesn't feel like knocking on for 9 years since it ended.

Does anyone remember the C4 show, After Dark? It was a round table, chat type show, where celebrities were given bucket loads of alcohol to talk rubbish. Maybe the BBC have sorted it with "I'll get this", I thought last nights show was the best of the series. 

Yes I remember it well,  here's a classic clip of Olly Reed completely out of his skull on the show.

We used to watch that After Dark thing on Channel 4. Although I think we were possibly just waiting for the soft porn labelled ‘red triangle’ films that they had on late at night.

Or so I heard

Just finished the latest series of inside no 9, fantastic.  What a great series,  if you've not tried it, here's some reasons why you should. 

 

As good as anything that has been on TV for the last couple of years. Brilliant stories, with the two leads on top of their games!

I agree; Inside No.9 has been remarkable for variety as well as quality.

Ahhh the red Triangle .... I remember the first Saturday they used the Red Triangle for their films.

I had been out drinking and got in around midnight.  I bobbed the telly on and flicked through all 4 channels.  The Channel 4 film had the Red Triangle in the corner of the screen and I thought ‘Wahhhaaayy’.  After about 10 minutes I thought ‘This is one heck of a long lead up to a fruity scene’.  I didn’t realise that the Triangle was always shown throughout the whole film 🙄🙄

Oliver Reed, superb actor, greatly missed, especially in the Hart near the Brompton, great raconteur,  but dont pick a fight with him. Hilarious guy who love the Workers in the NHS, Friday night his card was always behind the bar for one drink each.

When Reed was in the mood and in the right film, he had a more powerful screen presence than most. I remember Channel 4 showing a (I think) uncut, or largely uncut version of 'The Devils' and he was magnificent.

Last ever Hawaii Five-0 tonight. Didn't realise until it was announced at the beginning. I know it's not great art, but I will miss it. It has been a reliable companion for ten years on Sunday nights.

I haven’t seen Hawaii 5-0 since the original 70’s series!

Increasing cunning ploy on telly of repackaging old programmes , with a new intro ... and then ‘going into the archives’ or ‘ another chance to see ‘ ... or a ‘ new compilation ‘ instead of just calling them repeats

Book publishers have done this for years. Slap a new cover on an old novel, get it placed in a prominent position in the bookshop/supermarket and some buyers think it’s a new book by one of their favourite authors.

I dont think they have many new shows up their sleeves, & will get worse in the autumn, because NOW is when they record those programmes.

One of the most obvious feeble efforts at this is "Paddington - A Year On The Tracks", Just a rehash of previous programs.

This is what I deserve for not checking the Forces TV listings often enough; I just found out they've been showing the science fiction series "V" for the last few months, and I've missed nearly all of it.

You are both right. Was channel hopping the other day and came across an episode of Escape To The Country.  Watched the last ten minutes and then the credits roll and saw it was made in 2002, 18 years ago.  What is the point in showing a program of that type ( ie what you can get for your money etc) that's 18 years old.
