How many programmes are you talking about here? And which one (s)?

It was a thread about Film 2014 which was merged into this, the post by l'ang above mine was the opener. And Beford's, which read out of context is an Unintersting Trivial Fact all of it's own.

Okay a couple of contributions from me:

 

The Fall - Second series withe Gillian Anderson.  It's good edge of the seat stuff.

 

Finally watched Senna on Blu-Ray, I'm not really a motor racing fanatic but it was good compelling viewing, and quite emotional as well in a week where we've seen Phil Hughes die.

The Fall is good stuff. Jamie Dornan's character is a real monster.

I've been following Sky Portrait Artist of the Year and I feel sorry for this week's contestants.

 

Obviously, I'm one of those 'I don't know much about art, but I know what I like' types but I thought the standard this week was a whole load higher than in the earlier heats Some really good stuff hasn't made it through to the semi-final.

 

Even then, I can't understand some of the judges' selections. This week, one of the "best three" was a tapestry that didn't look  even half finished and in an earlier heat the judges admitted that one of that week's "best three" wasn't a particularly good likeness of the sitter.

Can't be bothered with 'sleb anymore since Bullard and Forde got voted off.

Who, and, erm who? :unsure:

I think the producers really dropped the ball allowing the majority of the strongest characters in the camp being eligible for the first vote off while all the deadwood were immune. It was a shock Bullard went first, I think everyone assumed him being safe so didn’t vote, but people who liked Tinchy knew he was more likely to leave so probably were more likely to vote. It is pretty unusual for the red hot favourite for someone to win a reality show to be eliminated after the first public vote.

 

Also now Bullard is out, it’s actually exposed it as a pretty weak lineup. Baffled by how the Allo Allo woman is still in there – she’s done nowt. Wish Michael had stayed in a tad longer though.

Thought Bullard blew it with his 'banter', turned a lot against him.


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!

Problem is with Bullard is that he would've been used to an environment where banter and general mickey taking is the norm. I don't think he was vicious or nasty in his banter but Jake was simply out of his league.

King Carl is still in 'Sleb' - a proper star. I might actually watch the final, if it doesn't clash with the Track Cycling on the BBC.

The great 1981 adaptation of Day of the Triffids is being repeated on BBC4 at the moment.

Damn! How did I miss spotting this in the listings? Great book, and the BBC had a pretty decent shot at adapting it for the screen.

I felt exactly the same way when I saw it was on. Fortunately you can play catch up on the iPlayer.

Just watched Elton John go base over apex (keeping it clean, eh?) in a touching tribute to John Kear when Hull FC won the Challenge Cup.  :biggrin:
