Just watched the 3rd episode of Rip it up.

Really good stuff.

Worth watching alone for the breakfast TV interview of the Soup Dragons at 6.00 am, after an all night acid house rave.:lol:

Didn't really like the series and with so much of E3 devoted to the problems Scottish acts had with "the music business" and the subsequent DIY ethos it seemed perverse to ignore wur ain Gerry Rafferty who incidentally produced The Proclaimers Letter To America (not mentioned).

His two biggest hits Baker Street & Stuck in the Middle With You (with Stealers Wheel) were complaints about the record industry and he distributed his last few records himself through choice, not necessity.

Bear Grylls Celebrity Island.............................

Amusing, Bear, what fud calls themselves Bear, assembles a group of nobodys who can hardly wipe their own arse on an island in the Pacific.

It's like a script, would you believe, that things go pear shaped, they gather themselves, with a few who abandon ship and they all find themselves in the end.

Bitter Rivals: Iran & Saudi Arabia.

Three part series on PBS America (Sky 160) about the ongoing struggle between the two countries which started in 79 when Ayatollah Khomeni's Revolutionary Govt (Shia) took control of Iran. In response to these events the Saudi royal family did a U-turn on attempts to liberalize their country and re-adhered to the Wahabi (Sunni) clerics and Sharia Law.

Since then the struggle has been fought all over the Middle East, currently most noticeably in Yemen and beyond (present UK Terrorist Threat Level - Severe).

An ongoing tragedy.

Am I the only one who still watches TV?

 

Anyway I recommend Mystery Road BBC4 9pm tonight - Top Australian noir!

Just that when anyone mentions a TV programme the hoards decry it as pish..............................as we discussed some time ago about music, all objective. 

The Bodyguard on BBC has been, IMO, very enjoyable drama.

I thought the bodyguard was pish, unbelievable story line and I know he's from Elderslie but I'm afraid the lead actor just can't act.

By comparison, Killing Eve, which I've just finished watching on iPlayer, is an infinitely better bit of telly.

Are there many people from Elderslie that can act ? William Wallace was good in Braveheart :P

It's a personal choice bit like music for me it was very enjoyable a drama nothing else. It has broken all viewing figures tells it's own story.

Agree on all counts.

Killing Eve is superb.
