Watched Louis Theroux interviewing Pete Doherty....love Louis and Doherty.
Really hope Doherty stays on the straight and narrow...such a talent who's been haunted by addictions.
Still a difficult bloke to actually like (just IMO)
I went into that thinking "Another pop star that wasted his talent, and isn't it obvious these days that heroin isn't good for you? This isn't 1970!",
but as I hoped, Louis drew out his better side a bit.
Still a difficult bloke to actually like (just IMO), but I do have a lot of sympathy for him. A couple of scenes were quite tough viewing.
The first prog with Anthony Joshua (the big boxer fella!) was a lot more successful, I thought. A more likeable interviewee, but Louis still pressed a lot of buttons, and got a surprising amount of thoughtful comments from AJ.
Quite similar career paths involved; the aim is loads of money+fame , with the downside of f**king your health up long-term (for our entertainment).
Given that this is the fisrt I've heard of it, I'm guessing it's not on free-to-air. Which was kind of inevitable, tis the fate of every decent long-running US thing ... (I did the think that series 4 with Chris Rock et al was a bit 6/10 ... not great, but credit to them for doing something different ... )Also watched the first couple of episodes of the new season of Fargo.Absolutely love it,oh how I've missed it.😁
I'm enjoying Boat Story too - only one episode in, though.
Tcheky Karyo is very menacing!
I loved Rellik, another Williams Brothers production a few years ago, in which Paterson Joseph's character also came to a rather sticky end 😮
3 episodes left for me to watch and I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out
