crawled to end. And slightly
disappointing too. Not many laughs, mainly just rubbish. Why they concentrate this show on the irritating Scottish bint (who I won't give the luxury of naming her)
who cannot act is beyond me. The highlight was certainly was HUG ME I'M A CHOCOLATE BAR
and his exclamation of "Don't mess with me, I'm an archaeologist!"
when confronted by a man with a knife. Cue ADRIAN LESTER'S inexplicable
, "So am I!"
and then a fight ensues in which they overpower professional hitmen. Tuesday nights won't be the same...
KEITEL joins the cast of LIFE ON MARS - USA style!
Providing many larfs
on the same night was MAESTRO
. I caught the last half an hour 'live' as it were and I haven't been so amused in a long time as when I witnessed PETER SNOW
conducting the orchestra. I dunno
what amused me more; his awkwardness or the fact that not only
were the audience in tears (laughing)
but so were the orchestra! Not very profesh
there guys. Top marks to The Snow~meister's
cousin, JON SNOW
, for using the phrase "gets your balls tingling"
. This show surprised me with its quality, so I watched the rest on the iPlayer
. Quite good, not too
dumb for a reality show and I actually knew all
the people involved. 90 minutes was perhaps over~stretching it though. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
It's been a while, but she's back!
After that I caught the last 10 minutes or so of HOW NOT TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
- the new sitcom from BBC3 - and, due a "late era~Genesis"
gag, I decided to watch the rest of it on the aforementioned iPlayer
. Not many
laughs but there were a couple, I'll give it another go. Providing more laughs was THE KEVIN BISHOP SHOW
over on CHANNEL 4
. The series is nearly finished and I'm a bit miffed to have missed it as the one I saw provided no less than 10 giggles. Some of it is puerile nonsense (and unfunny)
and none if it is entirely
clever but it's quick and this brevity keeps you watching for the next good bit. [Richard Madeley]
Well done, an old fashioned sketch show with modern sensibilities... [/Richard Madeley]
Another series of KINGDOM? Are you effin' serious??
Elsewhere in TVLand, BRITAIN FROM ABOVE
started and what a patronising
load of old primary school garbage this is. I was looking forward to this (I even bloody taped it!)
but what we got was not
Britain from above at all
. What we got was a day in the life of the bloody road system and a 'tantalising' look at the guy who monitors people putting on the kettle after EASTENDERS
. So old. So dumb.
Speaking of old, I meant to do a post on the OLYMPICS OPENING CEREMONY
but that was over a week ago now so I won't bother. It was truly
awesome but if, like me, you watched it the UK you were probably shouting at the inane
commentary from HAZEL "Too Many Scottish Women On TV" IRVINE
and HUW "Welshy Welshy" EDWARDS
One of these ladies is KATY PERRY, the other is ZOOEY DESCHANEL....
When China presented their 'history' the guys made a point of mentioning all the unpleasant eras and commented on their absence in the show. Now, due to this post being old someone has beaten me to the point. FRANKIE BOYLE
did a bit about it on MOCK THE WEEK
and so I won't repeat it but if this was a week ago, you guys would be larfing!
The gist (in case you didn't see MTW)
of my monologue was that if the UK
were to do a history as part of the opening ceremony in 2012
, I am sure they would miss out stuff like all the 'wars' with Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Not to mention
this country's part in slavery and global domination. Back to Beijing
and when Iraq came out in the opening, the camera focused on GEORGE "W" BUSH
to which one of the numb~nuts
said, "That'll give him something to think about"
. These people are being paid
for this drivel.
PERRY and DESCHANEL together! But which one is which?
I mentioned in my last post the topic of lazy
journalism; seems I'm not the only person who gets annoyed by it. In THIS
post on his blog, GRAHAM "The Guv'nor" LINEHAN
mentioned how they were looking for ideas for props, etc...
, to use in the office for the new series of THE IT CROWD
. You know, geek ephemera
. The BEEB
got hold of this story and reported like THIS
. Yup, 'desperate for props' (I did want to do an 'urban' gag about 'props' here but decided against it)
and this, in turn, irked
who blogged about it HERE
. Again, the BBC
want to sex everything up into a 'story'. It's not like there isn't anything going on in the world at the moment!
The German version of THE IT CROWD. No, really.'Til the next time,C.
