Plus New Feature Our Woman On Cable
Any comments, rants, reviews of current faves, whatever, feel free to
TODAY I HAVE MOSTLY BEEN WATCHING...
World cup fever is upon us, much singing of Vindaloo and Viva Espania
around here. Go Belgium, Go Germany etc. ( I have this knack of picking
the winners and may spend the afternoon in the bookies). Having said
that the punditry can get a bit dull, BBC's Gary Liniker and Ian Wright
just about having the edge on Des Lynam's talking moustache on ITV.
When It comes to punditry sorry Des but hunky doesn't cut it which is
why the most entertaining programme about football at the moment has to
be JOHNNY VAUGHAN'S WORLD CUP EXTRA. 11.05pm.BBC1. SUN.MON.TUES. Johnny
and various celebrity guests chew the fat in a way which is not only
funny but interesting to any one who knows nothing about football. So
That's just about every one then.
If Leytonstone High Street should ever have a huge 3 mile deep crater
gouged down the middle by a huge cyclone into which the whole of the
northern hemisphere toppled, shifting the world off it's axis, then Ray
Mears is your man. RAY MEARS' ESSENTIAL SURVIVAL . 8.00pm. BBC2.
SUNDAYS. is an occasional programme and well worth checking the
listings for to see if it's on. Ex army Mears will show you how to
survive said cyclone with a brolly and a tooth brush if that's all you
have to hand but that's after he's shown you how to light a fire with a
bog roll and why you don't want to sleep on the forest floor so make a
hammock instead. Mears not only employees his army training for survival
but travels the world meeting and learning from all types of people who
live in the most inhospitable corners of the world.
Thoroughly enjoying SIX FEET UNDER. 11.10. CH4.MON. so far. It a tale
of a family of undertakers whose most mundane tasks seem to take on a
surreal quality. Also very enjoyable is ED. 1.30pm. CH4. WEEKDAYS. Not
to be confused with re-runs of 50's sit-com Mr Ed, the hilarious
talking horse. Ed Stevens is a lawyer who lives in the small town idyll
of Stuckeyville which is populated by a host of very likeable
characters. Ed and his friends are all professional thirty somethings
with the obligatory kooky, touch .i.e. Ed's office is in the local
Bowling alley. A slick, wry and smug slice of americana, just the way I
THEYRE BACK.. YIP!!!!
OZ. 11.10.CH4. TUES. This hardcore, X rated Barry Levinson production
about prison life should be compulsory viewing in high schools so any
scum sucking moron considering a career of mugging and preying on the
more vulnerable can watch this a decide if he wants to be a bitch or
just raped and tormented all day until he chews his own arm off and
bleeds to death (slowly) because he can't take it anymore. Romper Room
it isn't. ANGEL. 10.30. CH4. SAT. The tall, dark, brooding vamp (yum) is
back trawling those mean streets of L.A for more demons and weirdoes
>from other dimensions and I don't mean Hollywood Boulevard on a Sunday
afternoon. And last but not least ( got to go and watch Belgium thrash
Brazil. OK wishful thinking ) Interior designer Ann Maurice and her camp
side kick Aleister Appleton are back for another series of HOUSE DOCTOR
8.30.CH5.THURSDAY. Another chance to nose around other peoples
houses....And God is in her Heaven.
OUR WOMAN ON CABLE
THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. LIVING T.V. CABLE CHANNEL 111
Well what can one say or feel of you love this soap but despair. Dumped
by Channel 5 and then picked up by Living T.V only to be dropped again.
Why why why do schedulers muck our programmes around this way.
So we're left with Amber and C.J at the altar and Rick racing to her
rescue, Brooke and Thorne playing their eternal tune, will they, wont
they get back together (more likely when) and Taylor, Morgan and Ridge's
baby triangle. Will we ever find out ? Well Living T.V do say B+B will
be back in July, here's hoping they do.
THE OPERATION DISCOVERY CABLE 130 2 am
If you have and interest in what the human body looks like inside and
You're not squeamish you'll love this. Each weeknight a different
operation is shown, a liver transplant, a hernia repair, breast
reduction and transplanting a toe onto half a finger to name a few.
They are totally fascinating, you get to see often with the aid of
micro surgery cameras your internal world. Once you're past the cutting
and you're inside, it's a bit like a living sewing project.
Not just for Doctors, thoroughly recommended.
