    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.
    Still Game is definitely a ‘grower’. Not gut-wrenchingly funny, but makes me smile.

    I enjoyed Fonejacker the other night which surprised me as I had thought the concept a little feeble.

    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.

    I loved Life On Mars! I really liked the ending too but I don’t know how they’ll go with a third series becasue Sam isn’t in it is he? (Is he?)

    John Simm didn’t want to do a third series, but due to the show’s success there’s going to be a continuation. It’s going to be a whole new series called ‘Ashes to Ashes’. It’s set in the 80’s (do you see what they did there?), and it involves a female detective having a similar experience to Sam and joining Gene Hunt’s team, who have moved down to London.

    That Keeley Hawes from Spooks plays the new female role I think.
    I like Philip Glenister he’s good! :D

    I’m a bit of a geek. The racing aside, my TV viewing doesn’t really get past The Daily Politics and Question Time…. :oops:

    However if there is an interesting documentary/series on I’ll make time to watch it.

    Tonight I’m going to be watching The Pale Horse (Agatha Christie) It stars the rather cute Colin Buchanan (of Dalziel & Pascoe fame) and Jayne Ashbourne and Hermione Norris – hmmmmmmmmmmmm what she doing in this? …. not a huge fan of hers at all :shock: )

    Apropos of the latter – what on planet Bejaysus was the execrable Davina McCall doing on the panel last week?

    Her performance did little to alter my view of her as an ignorant, bolshie, superficial, gurning panjandrum, and the TV almost went out of a window (in a manner unseen at Chez Column since, ooh, the last time Clarkson was given any air time) over her ill-conceived and witless observations of a university system about which she has plainly has no first-hand experience and even less comprehension.

    Douglas Murray was a git, but at least he was a reasoned git.

    So I believe, KT. By the by, are the stories we get over here of folk being imprisoned for dropping chewing gum, whistling on a Tuesday or stepping on the cracks of the pavement an exaggeration?

    Well you don’t get imprisoned for chewing gum but you can get fined if you drop it.
    You can only buy that ‘stop yourself smoking gum’ in chemists and you have to sign for it with your ID card.
    It’s illegal to import the stuff too, so no trying to sneak boxes of Wrigleys across the causeway otherwise you’ll be for it. :lol: Truly you will :shock:

    I haven’t heard anyone whistling on a Tuesday ….. but I don’t know about a law… want me to try it out tomorrow? :shock:
    If I don’t sign on for a while you’ll know the answer. :lol:

    Stepping over the cracks in a pavement…. hmmmm well I don’t know about the law but surely anyone with any sense steps over them because if you don’t the bears will get you…….. :shock:

    heroes….cross between x-men and lost….sounds weird and far fetched at first but not over acted or dramatised for an american series and is actually rather addictive after the first few episodes…well worth a watch when it hits BBC soon….and there are 23 episodes in an american series…so if you like it there is plenty to watch!!! :P

    We’ve got Heroes over here! It’s on Hallmark I think. They all have special powers of one sort or another I think.

    Just finished The Pale Horse – a bit of a weird sort of a movie that was. :shock: and Hermione Norris was actually OK! :lol:

    Am now watching Lewis – quite good, only I keep expecting Morse to pop in :(

    Heh-heh, I was having a giggle with that one. It’s a reference to Alexei Sayle’s “Medieval Torture gameshow” sketch in an episode of The Young Ones, i.e.

    Sayle: “So what are you here for?”
    Prisoner / Contestant: “Er, I whistled on a Tuesday”
    (gasps of shock from audience)
    Sayle (disgusted); “Yooooou b*stard!”

    etc.

    Stepping over the cracks in a pavement…. hmmmm well I don’t know about the law but surely anyone with any sense steps over them because if you don’t the bears will get you…….. :shock:

    Ye verily the preserve of mothers’ tales, that, just like chewing gum sticking to your bones and killing you if you swallow it. And we’re back to chewing gum again. Hey, seamless linkage there! :lol:

    I haven’t seen that! But it sounds quite funny! :lol:

    That’s it! There was also ‘don’t eat the raw pastry you’ll get worms’! :lol:

    Alexei Sayle, now there’s a comic genius i’d forgotten about!

    We’ve got Heroes over here! It’s on Hallmark I think. They all have special powers of one sort or another I think.

    yep, that’s it…as usual, some have better ones than others, and the bad guy absorbs others power in a rather grusome way making him the uber baddie!! V. exciting!! :twisted:

    That’s it! There was also ‘don’t eat the raw pastry you’ll get worms’!

    never heard that one…but i still don’t eat apple pips in case they take root in my tummy! Thinking about it, maybe i should do that, and then eat some raw pastry to get the worms to keep the tree roots happy!
