Steve McNamara's there too. The Roosters are in Auckland for tomorrow's match, I assume.

What's worse? Watching a TV show and constantly saying to yourself, "My God this is dreadful," or then immediately watching the next episode? Rogue is a UK/Canuck production set in USA. It's a by-the-numbers undercover-cop-infiltrates-crime-gang-then-usual-stuff-happens. Now I normally like Canadian cop shows so I thought, "How bad could this be?" Well, I'm about to watch the final episode of Season 1 for the same reason many people attend funerals - to make sure the #### is really dead.

 

Why did a Canadian show import a bunch of English (and NZ) actors to play the parts of the Yanks? Not a convincing US accent between the lot of them. Whoever did the casting must have got confused with their previous gig, casting models for a skinny jeans commercial. FFS Thandie Newton! You don't have to purge after every meal!

 

The current Season 4 is currently running and I just wanted to get some background on the characters. I needn't have bothered. It turns out they really are all as deep as a cigarette paper and as original as the sun setting in the west.

 

This is not a show for anyone looking for stimulating or even interesting entertainment. This show should only be used at places like Guantanamo Bay and then only when waterboarding has ceased to produce results.

Crank up the iPlayer and watch the Porton Down programme that was on BBC4 tonight (9pm - 10pm). Frightening but utterly fascinating.

Trainspotting live on BBC4.

 

Can't really describe it...

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!

Express yourself.

 

 

I'm not sure I'd be on the right track.

That's what the BBC iPlayer (or the SquarePenguin get_iplayer) is for. ;)

Yes, I'll be using that rather nifty technology. Didn't even know it was a colour film. I'd only ever seen it in black and white before. The quality was very good.

And what the bloody hell's wrong with that?

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Willow is on Ch5 at 4.35pm today. I remember seeing it at the cinema and enjoying it. Haven't seen it since. Hope it lives up to my (28 years ago) memories of it, which are as "an underrated gem".

'Willow' is a pretty good movie. Val Kilmer has a lot of fun with his character.

The star of the show, The Titfield Thunderbolt is Lion which started its life in 1838 on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. It is now in the Museum of Liverpool.

One Night in 2012.

 

Great documentary on the Olympic opening ceremony.  A hark back to a more optimistic time?
