Hustle: back on form

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

The fifth series of Hustle is definitely back on form.  Glad that Mickey Bricks is back from “Australia” (oh, I thought he’d been off making films), and that the writing has got its edge back.  It’s much improved from before.  It’s a pity Jaime Murray is no longer in it, but you can’t have everything.  Kelly Adams is nearly as good in the same/similar role.  Not warming so quickly to Matt Di Angelo but, then again, it was the same with Marc Warren to start with.

Episode 4 is on this Thursday.

Sky+: check your scheduled recordings this weekend!

Friday, October 24th, 2008

If you’ve got a Sky+ box and use it to record things on series link, check your scheduled recordings on Sunday when the clocks have gone back.  Last time the clocks changed we had to re-schedule the recordings because they were all wrong by an hour…

Hustle: the con is over?

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

HustleI hate to say it, but top-notch BBC con-men series Hustle has had its day. I’d been looking forward to the new series ever since the previous series ended, but with the departure of Adrian Lester it’s not the same show at all. This series’ episodes so far have been missing finesse, and I think it’s down to trying to make Danny Blue the new leader of the crew.


Eurovision: Torn

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

Thankfully this year there isn’t a song amongst the six UK candidates that I’d be embarrassed for us to be sending to Eurovision, although the Hawkins & Brown attempt was a little disappointing (too much of a mish-mash for my liking).  So who did I vote for?


Just a TV show

Saturday, March 3rd, 2007

Virgin MediaI’m not going to switch to Sky just to watch Lost. It’s just a TV show. I do think it’s the best TV show I’ve seen, but there will be a DVD. Sure, I’ll miss it on Sunday night, but at least I’ll get to go to bed earlier.
