Mediterranean with Simon Reeve.

I think this is a repeated series, but I started watching it after catching his excellent "Americas" series. Not normally a fan of docu-travelogues but these two are well worth catching on the iPlayer.
Or watch it on BBC2 in a few minutes.:okay:

The second Sherlock Holmes film with Tony Stark. It was alright, a light hearted yarn with plenty of bad guys getting slapped. Far from being highbrow, but a good romp. It should be a film review, but I missed half :laugh:

6/10.

Police Interceptors

Which, for the second time in a fortnight covered roads that I use
Last weeks, with the chase of the Mondeo, where it hit the (silver) Polo, before driver tried to leg it, only to be found in a court-yard, was less than a mile from me

Tonights, when they were after the (blue) Mazda, showed the Police on Ferry Lane, & crossing the (Aire & Calder Navigation) Canal where I do
Plus, the car was stopped at Whitwood Common, opposite 'Voysey Row', where i ride past a lot


The Dukes Of Hazzard
Hazzardville Horror

Featuring a moustachioed Andrew Robinson, as an inept thief
(better known as the pyscho/sadist killer in 'Dirty Harry', & as Garak in Star-Trek : Deep Space 9)
As long as Daisy doesn't become moustachioed that will still be on my list of 'rainy day' programmes.

All of Simon Reeve's travelogues are worth watching; Tropics, Equator, Places that don't Exist, Russia, etc.

Breaking Bad.

I'm almost finished with the 5th and final series (I'll be watching El Camino straight after, with a break before Better Call Saul).

Loving it - I'd seen the first 4 series but due to my ex losing interest never had a chance to see the 5th. It's unbelievably dark, and at times very difficult to watch without a pause for breath. Everyone is morally reprehensible in their own way, but Walt has to be the most villainous, slippery, conniving character I've seen in TV. Jesse is a wonderful character too, I want to give the poor lad a hug constantly.

I'm quite glad I'm late to the party here, as I find the hype around TV shows/films fairly tedious and off-putting, but believe the hype with this one, it's brilliant.

Just watching this on catch up.

The ticket hall at Surbiton is very reminiscent of the north concourse at Leeds isn't it?

Two things are vexing me though - the appalling picture quality due to the low bit-rate on UKTV Play and the repeated inability of the host to say Carlisle properly. :wacko:
