Has anybody watched It's a Sin, C4?
Rave reviews, I've seen quite a few clips, looks top class.
Definitely a catch up.
Watched it on All 4 over a couple of nights.
Excellent and highlights yet another section of society who were (and still are) discriminated against.
The way that AIDS sufferers were dealt with was particularly eye opening.
Watched Britain's favourite 80's songs on Channel 5. Top thirty best sellers of 1980 in tonight's episode. Absolutely brilliant.

Paisley's own Kelly Marie with third best selling single of 1980, Feels like I'm in love. Saw her singing it live in the Cotton Club/Institute in the early 90's.

Just finished watching Back a sitcom on C4 starring Robert Webb & Dave Mitchell (Peep Show) - possibly the darkest sitcom I've ever seen although it did introduce the concept of "hedge vodka" to me.

Season 2 ended with the teaser for a possible Season 3 - hope it happens!

Oh, and most importantly, I found it funny.

Just read this now, this very subject came up on our team call yesterday morning, to me it’s like a form of positive discrimination - TalkSPORT as well as Sky have gone mad with this over the last six months, IMO its clearly wrong as to why or whatever reason the opportunities were not there before and it’s great to correct it, but not with overkill and hire good quality.

The colour of skin doesn’t guarantee good punditry, again IMO Jenas (mentioned on an earlier thread is quality), Richards is dire, I like Ferdinand and I think Robbie Savage is pants.

All about personal taste I guess!!

Football focus back at it again, from nowhere, as far as I know, Jermaine Beckford.

Not the worst TBH but, ach, PC gone mad.

Jane McDonald cruising particularly good this evening, she’s been cruising round mull and Hebrides from Oban - she’s just started singing though (not meant as a compliment or insult)....In case someone’s watching.......

Still better than Alec Rae, Kris Boyd and Andy Walker

Why our pundits got to be Sellic and Rangurs  men who offer no impartiality

Seen this advertised, looks pretty decent.............................downloaded the whole series last night. 

 

Watched the first episode today, quite a slow start but sets up the rest of the series quite nicely.

I've watched the whole thing and, without giving anything away, don't expect it to get much faster. It is a reasonable watch and you could compare the pace of it with the likes of Bosch.

Just watching Return to Dunblane, 25 years on, heart breaking when they read out the children's names and ages, 5 and 6 years old along with their teacher.

Not sure I'd ever get over that if it had been one of my children.

That was a tough watch, very tough.

Today is the 25th anniversary, still almost unbelievable. 

Back then information wasn't as immediate as it is today, reports were patchy and the enormity didn't become apparent for a while.

We have driven through/past Dunblane hundreds of times, before and after this tragic day, and it comes to mind most times.

Yeah I remember being in the Clean Room at work (pre baking daze for me) - hearing about it was one of those JFK moments.

*****************

I caught a few minutes at the end of the program whilst in the canteen at work but can't say it still affected me - maybe I'm just callous these days, but I feel these anniversaries should be for those personally affected by the events. Still in these post-Diana days perhaps we're all entitled to a share of the grief.

Obviously in this age of social media the concept of the stiff upper lip which was not just a British phenomenon (Japan shared this attitude) and was described as necessary for survival by furners like Freud & Dylan (Bob).

Erm is it just me or do the same bunch of comedians do the same show under a slightly different title with a different main presenter?
Do 8 out of10 cats mock the Taskmaster?
It's fast becoming not funny!
No

Yes

You're just getting auld and losing your sense of humour.
