It's that time of year again,
"The Eurovision Song Contest" (BBC1 Sat,
8.00) Once again I planned to give you a Eurovision Special, once again I
filled a page with thought-provoking commentary, and once again I found that
once sober I couldn't read most of it. However, in no particular order the
following were still legible.
That dress is almost illegal.
If Shakira & Christina Aguilera had a baby.
Catch the booing?
Nice song, shame about the mouth.
She's got bad facial hair.
Lapdancing, where am I?
Terry is God.
Lets Get Gay, this is camp enough without encouragement.
On to more highbrow things. Or Not. "Bargain Hunt
Live" (BBC1, all week, 7.00) Why? Orange Man Live. Random
contestants in fancy dress all doing very badly, and this time it doesn't
even have the justification of being for Children In Need. Instead I think
the proceeds from the phone lines and any profit are going to BBC In Greed.
Shouldn't be allowed. How long before the "Cult Viewing" bubble bursts?
"Top Of The Pops 2 - Stripped" (BBC2,
all week 6.45) Stripped. How appropriate considering Amanda Holden was the
guest presenter? (What? I'm not saying anything!) Actually, love her or
hate her, this week's worth of Tops2 had some good things going for it. Less
obscure tracks and no pointless Nu-Country songs at the end. And the London
Boys. Anything that features the London Boys just once will make me
smile. More than once and it'll probably make me ill, but once is good.
"I'm A Celebrity - Get Me Out Of Here, The Reunion"
(ITV, Weds 9.00) What a
let down. Catalina & Danniella sat next to each other like best buddies, and
I was screaming out for a cat fight. Just not good enough. In all honesty
this years I'm a Celeb has been dull as a week of cricket, and so I wasn't
expecting any more from the reunion show, and that's exactly what I got.
It's here. The (alleged) TV event of the year.
"Big Brother 4" (Channel 4, from Friday until eternity, all the
time) And what do we make of them so far? 5 dull blokes, 1 tarty bloke. 2
posh tart girls, 1 cheap tart girl, 3 dull girls. And the 2 Anouskas were so
obviously chosen to create instant hostility between them, worked within 20
seconds of the blonde one walking in. First voting advice... difficult
choice, I want to see the bitchiness evolve & see if anything happens
between Anouska & Federico (it won't,
but...) but I can't stand hearing her any longer. So, VOTE ANOUSKA!
Finally, quiz answer of the week - sillicone
