    TV Letters and Numbers

    If you are interested, there are quite a few on-line versions (all under the UK name of 'Countdown'). Here's one.

    TV Letters and Numbers

    They are probably trying to get a little bit of the '8 out of 10 cats' vibe going. Give the celebs some opportunity to do their little routines.

    Eye Rolling Movie Tropes

    That's often because she has had to tear off a strip of her expensive evening gown to bandage the hero's minor wound.

    Um, aaargh, nope. Still can't beat 'Go to red alert'.

    Eye Rolling Movie Tropes

    Actually, that whole Ace Rimmer scene manages to hit a dozen or so tropes throughout. 1. Evil Nazi is also fat. 2. Bad guy can't shoot straight. 3. Bad guy leaves hero facing certain death - but crucially he leaves before hero is actually dead. 3. Hero complains about some minor irritant while...

    James Bond 007 Series

    Here is the George Lazenby commercial that got him noticed and asked about becoming the next James Bond. Or maybe it was this one (same company) - Lazenby has more screen time here.

    TV I'm a Celebrity....... Get Me Out Of Here

    Lance Armstrong raised bugger-all to help cancer sufferers. Livestrong raised money to 'Raise awareness of cancer' - like we didn't know that was a thing. One of the ways they found to 'Raise awareness' was to rent a private jet for Armstrong and associates to get to functions and events etc...

    TV I'm a Celebrity....... Get Me Out Of Here

    John Steffensen? 3-time olympian. Has priors with other 'celebrity' shows. Media savvy. Good performer. Guaranteed to make a few inflammatory remarks when required. Loves playing the race card. Main knock against is that he may be working with the Nitro Aths series running in Feb.

    TV Have You Been Paying Attention?

    I'm a huge UK comedy fan and watch most of them. Would I Lie to You is the only exception. I find it very cringe-worthy. Despite what I think, it is very popular.

    TV Have You Been Paying Attention?

    First time I've watched it in a while. Greatly improved from early days - much faster, less predictable. Sam Pang remains the funniest guy on Australia television. Kitty F has excellent timing - hre response when told 'Your answer has to be clean' was perfectly understated. Oh - and Chloe...

    TV Big Music Quiz

    Spicks and Specks worked because they asked music stars and comedians on, asked serious questions and got them to riff off that. Everyone got a couple of minutes to do their story, and the comedians just interjected as appropriate. The poor parts of the show were whenever they did a...

    Sorry - refer to the Radiotimes article linked above.

    TV Top Gear UK Series

    Interesting with Sabine Schmitz - when she first appeared on Top Gear about 12 years ago, she created quite a stir because she was a)Fast b)funny and c) A Woman! She's had a good career in TV in Germany since, but I suspect from the above photo she's no longer in exactly racing trim.

    Feck! Father Jack has Died!

    Hopefully, he didn't sober up first. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3468004/Father-Ted-star-Frank-Kelly-played-foul-mouthed-Father-Jack-dies-aged-77.html In his honour, we should all have.........have a......... what?

    TV I'm a Celebrity....... Get Me Out Of Here

    Pietersen makes sense. The Poms love this celeb rubbish (their version has been going for years) plus cricketers have a pretty good record in these type of things - Tuffers won one (gave his profile a huge boost), Ramprakash won the dancing thing. Petersen won't get picked for England again...

    TV I'm a Celebrity....... Get Me Out Of Here

    Lets face it - the only interest will be the pretty one who prances around in a bikini. Don't know who that will be.

    Movie Dad's Army film

    I presume they are setting up a gotcha - it seems so obvious from the trailers who the spy is, they must throw a twist in there to show how clever they really are.

    Movie Independance Day

    U-S-A! U-S-A! Should be fun. I hope it retains the same tone as the original (over-the-top nationalism, cartoonish good- and bad guys, ludicrous technological Deux ex Machinas). Needs a few more hot chicks, though.

    Eurovision 2015

    The two semi-finals featured some of the most boring, dull insipid dross ever thrown up by Eurovision. No life, no get-up-and-dance - just slow ballads, drippy duets and diva torch anthems.

    TV I'm a Celebrity....... Get Me Out Of Here

    I am fairly relieved that in Australia we haven't fallen quite as far as the Poms, where they could put 'Celebrity' in front of any crap TV show - basket-weaving, hair-dressing, nose-picking - and people will watch it. About the only Celeb success we have had was the Dancing With The Stars, and...
