Not for me it isn't.

Is this N.I. only?
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

Not, strictly speaking, on at the moment, but available on Sky Boxsets*

Imagine the storylines of Justified mixed with the sex and gore of GoT and you pretty much have it to a tee.

I quite like it, but there has been times I have had to look away, such as

I'm enjoying No Offence - pacy, funny, rude, grimy. If you didn't know before it would only take a few seconds to see that Paul Abbott was behind it. Joanna Scanlon and the other 2 female leads are brilliant. Even Will Mellor is better than tolerable.

If you are interested in hist. (which few boys are) then jump on iPlayer and watch "The Savage Peace" while it's still there.  Documentary about the fate of ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia and Poland in the immediate aftermath of WW2.  Not for the squeamish.

NOT The Interceptor

From the off, I thought 'oh no'. To say it's dire is wasting words on it.

Tedious formulaic tripe.

Spotted the Soup Dragon in a trailer last night; also the Iron Chicken and the Froglets.  Thor is right about the sky, though.

Series record set on CBeebies. They're really skewing the demographics with the Clangers.

I read your comment and thought, Nah, it can't possibly be that bad...

It's worse. Really very bad indeed.

Also, a few points of geography:
1. Thanet isn't listed on motorway road signs
2. There is no junction 10 on the M2
3. In any case, the café where they shot that scene was by the A2 near Gravesend, not at the M2 services
4. Besides, the M2 services are near Rochester, not near the end of the M2 at Faversham

I won't be watching episode two.

7/7 - Survivors' Stories.

What a horrible, and excellent, programme.  It brings back that terrible day, and gives an account of some of the lasting damage.

Milk please, no sugar.
