Uk TV review Issue 30
Entertainers" (BBC2, Tue & Wed, 10pm)
That'll be the definition of entertainer which reads "someone who was
vaguely famous in 1972 but who has since fallen into obscurity due to a
lack of any discernable talent (and Nicholas Parsons)" I didn't believe
there could be a sight worse than Rik Waller in shorts, but now I've
seen it all - Bernard Manning in yellowing underpants! I think I need
to bleach my eyeballs!
"The Sun &
Me" (BBC2, Wed 9pm) No mention of the £5.00
holidays to Filey, Rhyl & Ilfracombe, so it must've been The
Sun & someone else. I'm a Weekly World News girl myself, The
Sun is a bit intellectual for me!
(BBC1, Thu 9pm) For goodness sake folks. "Grip" "Life" "Clue". There,
now you've got one of each. If the worst thing in your life is a bit of
dog mess on the pavement, then you've got it easy. Want to swap lives?
I can see the attraction of having a pet or two (to keep each other
company when you're out having that life I gave you earlier), but
there's something missing in your world when you reach double figures?
Please people, get out once in a while, interact with other human
beings, your cat does NOT know what you're saying to it.
"The Osbournes" (Ch4,
Fri 9.30) You've more than likely already seen it, and made up your own
mind about the Brummy Anti-Christ. So all I'm going to say is that I
want Kelly's pink hair! Not so sure my boss would approve, but there
"50 places to see
before you die" (BBC1, Sun 8pm) And Craig
Doyle's bedroom isn't among them? Despite my votes? I demand a recount.
No real surprise at the lack of Britain, and very little Europe. We
tend to forget what's on our own doorsteps. Truly dream TV - what I'd
do if I won the lottery sort of thing. Might help if I bought a ticket
though, I don't think my bus pass will get me to the Grand Canyon.
Hunt Live"(BBC1, all week, times vary) Oh dear,
oh dear, oh dear. The nights are drawing in, Christmas is getting
closer, it must be time for Children in Need (more about that next
week). Just to get us in the mood for poor quality so-called
entertainment in the name of Charidee, mate, a week of the Orange Man
& his showbiz chums. First up Ainsley Harriott &
Anthony Worrall-Thompson. Maybe I don't have an eye for antiques, but
every time they said "ooooh, isn't that lovely", I had an urge to jump
up and scream "No, it's overpriced, tacky & revolting!" No way
was that teddy bear worth £1300, charity or no charity.
Mon 9.30) I could tell you what you already know - half of Armstrong
& Miller and one of League of Gentlemen in a woefully
understaffed, under funded NHS hospital. You've read the papers, you
know this much. But... Tim Brooke-Taylor! And Lofty! And that fat bloke
who was in Pie in the Sky! That makes it worthwhile! And I haven't
laughed out loud so much in, oooh, a week.
"I'm Alan Partridge"
(BBC2, Mon 10pm) Actually, no I'm not, I'm Lorraine the TV review
person. And I'm cringing behind the cushions. Has the beeb decided to
make this the Cringe-Zone? First The Office, now Alan Partridge.
Clinically fed-up, third best show on Radio Norwich (which I think is
roughly equivalent to being 2nd shepherd in the school Nativity play)
I'm never quite sure whether to love this, hate it, or spend the whole
half hour behind the sofa, gibbering like a fool. Probably the third.
