    Oh dear that doesn’t sound good :? – if only I understood it. :shock:
    What is Telewest? Are they like a SKY Satelite tv station? Are you out in the sticks somewhere and can’t get very good reception?

    At the moment I am watching nothing whatsoever at all – need total hush when I’m writing my articles, blog entries and such like.

    How Mrs Column manages to do her coursework, invoices, tax returns etc. with all manner of action movies, music and whatever else blazing in the background defeats me entirely!

    It must be a female thing GC :lol: – I have Itunes playing on the computer, the TV on in the background and the kids yelling blue murder everytime they leap into the pool – quiet little souls that they are. :shock:

    I have to recomend ‘House’.An American hospital drama starring Hugh Laurie as the pill popping,hilariously sarcastic and tactless Dr.Greg House. Constantly in battle with Hospital authorities over his behaviour,appearence, time keeping, prescription med addiction and the little matter of the millions of dollars he has cost them in the courtrooms. He leads a team of doctors who specialise in cases where patients are displaying symptoms but the cause of which is a mystery. Each episode is a race against time to save the patient’s life as Dr.House insults, offends and upsets his staff, his bosses and the patients and their families.
    The show is not one where you have to watch it every week to follow the goings on, a big plus in my book. I’m not a fan of ‘Prison Break’ etc. where you must watch every week.
    Living T.V, Hallmark and Channel6(Irish station) show it.
    Any ways I’m a huge fan, it’s about the only thing with the exception of sport that I watch. Excellent stuff.
    I’d be very interested to hear what anyone else who has seen it thinks.

    Five US, I think it is, is re-running these from the start at the moment. Me and Mrs Column caught the first of these and enjoyed it immensely, even if the effect of seeing Hugh Laurie in this role about an hour after watching him as Bertie Wooster on ITV3 was a bit disconcerting.

    Favourite bit of dialogue from that show:

    [i:fdyi1x50][House is popping pills]
    Patient: What is that? What are you taking?
    Dr. Gregory House: Painkillers.
    Patient: Oh, for your… for your leg.
    Dr. Gregory House: No, ’cause they’re yummy! Want some?[/i:fdyi1x50]

    .. heffo, I’ve seen ‘House’ twice and I thought it was very good and quite unusual, I think I’d get a bit fed up of that kind of humour after a bit though .. I went through a phase of watching CSI, but that’s passed and I’m okay now .. :D

    Fortunately, I still get the Beeb, and I’m off to watch the rather excellent documentary on Paris that they’re running.

    The bird who presents it has a bit of a ropey bugle, but otherwise she’s all va-va-voom.

    Top veiwing.

    Hugh Laurie’s American accent is endlessly fascinating. He was better in Jeeves and Wooster, but House is pretty solid entertainment.

    This week I have been mostly watching the West Wing (Series 6) on DVD. They went through a dodgy patch around the time of 9/11 but this is back to their best.

    As you can probably guess from the avatar, I’m still grieving for the loss of Life on Mars. Best show on the TV for years IMO.

    Still Game starts on Thursday again, so I’ll watch that, but by the looks of the trailer I’m worried that it’s going to get a bit ridiculous.
