Casting for the 11th Doctor continues...DOCTOR WHO
is visiting the proms with a specially filmed
scene! Get the 411
on this year's event HERE
. My last post contained SPOILER~ish
material about the 2008 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
and, as predicted
, the news is getting out there. Go HERE
for a newspaper article on it. I'm sure there will be a press release on it soon enough.
Sorry, no INDY news this post!
TV~wise, DAVID "Stick To Paper~Thin Character Sketches Please" WALLIAMS
popped up playing FRANKIE "To Be Honest, I'm Not Really A Fan. There I Said It." HOWERD
in RATHER YOU THAN ME
disappointing it was too. Sadly
, David's acting skills were not of a level to transport me from thinking,"There's David Walliams doing an impression of Frankie Howerd."
An impression that, at times, was very
poor. The story itself was also a non~event
with no real
drama and few sympathetic moments. I did, however, enjoy RAFE "Son Of Timothy" SPALL
You've Got Snail...
I watched that on the 'ole iPlayer (whilst doing the dishes no less)
and continued to look for new stuff when I came across new yoof
show, THE WALL
. I won't
be doing that again. Couldn't even watch it to the end but, then again, I'm not really
their demographic. Speaking of not being in the demographic, I am continuing to watch AMERICAN IDOL
. This week saw the charity event that is IDOL GIVES BACK
. Quite a poor show, literally
, really. BILLY CRYSTAL
? Come on!
Having said that ROBIN "I'm So Hungry I Could Eat A Frazh" WILLIAMS
did provide the only larfs
for me appearing as a winning contest from RUSSIAN IDOL
which was him pretty much putting on a funny voice. Shockingly ('cos he could actually sing)
, Aussie rocker MICHAEL "Hutchence, Oops, Sorry I Mean" JOHNS
got booted off this week just after RYAN
stated they normally
didn't kick anyone off during that week. He look gutted
. So it wasn't all
Robin with another Billy.
Thankfully THE APPRENTICE
was there to provide larfs
. And in abundance. It seems that this year one week the girls will provide all the entertainment/horror/genuine stupidity
and then the following week it's the guys' turn. Annoyingly, RAFE
kept himself quiet, though he did say 110% (again!!)
within the first ten minutes of the show. One thing about these guys that amuses me no end
is their machismo and the way in which it infiltrates their patterns of speech. No matter what they're doing they speak in vacuous man~phrases
that defy any kind of analysis and with such pomposity that you can imagine DAVID BRENT
coming in and congratulating them on passing his management course. Top stuff
The real stars of THE APPRENTICE. Imagine them doing it...
THE APPRENTICE: YOU'RE FIRED
demonstrated how little
humility this weeks LOSER
had. If you remember, dear reader
, one of the f**knuckles
claimed he couldn't say that
word. This week he claimed he couldn't even spell
it. Well, I'm sure he knows both
now. He looked genuinely
sick on that stage, which is no bad thing as he really was a hideous
piece of work. The conundrum now seems to be if SR'ALAN
give a job to one of this shower as I wouldn't trust one of them to manage a fart
let alone a business. Lastly (drum roll purlease)
, THE OFFICE
is back! Huzzah!
This week's was more cringey
than funny though I did hoot a number of times especially
at the quote in the title of this post. JIM
did all the usual faces to maximum
effect but the episode doesn't fall into the 'classic' category. Funny but not great and Michael's relationship with Jan is getting slightly disturbing (no bad thing)
. Great to have it back though.
New face move from Jim...'Til the next time,C.
