Christmas telly

What is it with all these war films.

So far I've seen (in part)

Guns of Navarone
Force 10 from Navarone
Kelly's Heroes
633 Squadron
Escape to Victory    
The Dirty Dozen

I thought Christmas was about Peace, Love and Understanding and all that soppy stuff.

A Bridge too Far should be on that list, what the fuck are the telly schedulers up to?

Had hope for Still Open All Hours with David Jason taking over Arkwright's mantle.

Happened across "Doggy Styling" on Channel 4 last night which was about the world of  competitive extreme creative dog grooming.

I kid you not.

Fascinating in a "kinell" sort of way.

No - he's the one of the pair of lads from 44.08 with the Peruvian-type hat and Johna flashed up on the screen under him.

Have downloaded the Sex Pistols thing to watch later, caught up with some newish films today on Film 4 I can recommend.
Sightseers, very dark British comedy about a couple of psychopaths on a caravanning holiday.
Rare Exports- A Christmas Tale, Finnish comedy/horror about scientists digging up Santa who was actually evil.
Trollhunter, Norwegian film about a bloke who hunts Trolls.

I wasn't even a massive fan of the Pistols, though I massively respect them now for what they did, but I always get a wee bit emotional qhwn their story is on.  This Baubles documentary is brilliant and that 'Filth & The Fury' film by Julien Temple is superb, even better, and very moving too.

These are on Netflix, so will be watching. Actually we had started watching Rare Exports and I'll add a small caveat here, when I say we, I am including Heather who is eight. Quite why Netflix felt the need to put it alongside such gentle Christmas films as Elf and The Polar Express I'll never know. We'd started to get a bit twitchy with it but just put it down to it being a Finnish film, that was until all of the dead reindeer turned up. At that point we decided to switch films to National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, a much more wholesome Christmas viewing delight.

Finally watched the Doctor Who special and enjoyed it quite a lot, plus that 'An Adventure Through Space and Time' I think it was called, a drama written by Mark Gatiss about the beginning of the Dr Who series and Willian Hartnell as the first.  It was really good.

Oh and Mad Dogs the finale, which I enjoyed too but might well be in a minority there.

I can honestly say I didn’t watch one terrestrial programme in its entirety over the Christmas period. There was nothing that interested me whatsoever. We were watching stuff from the planner we had taped earlier in the year and box sets. The only things I did watch that are timeless in genius and flare and always put a daft grin across my countenance was the Morecombe & Wise famous recital of Grieg’s piano concerto (accompanied by the maestro Andrew Preview) and the floorless performances of Gene Kelly and Donald O’ Connor in Singin’ in the Rain. So in the final analysis my TV highlights from Christmas 2013 were a repeat of a sketch from 1971 and a tour de force of performance and original film making from 1952. Which I think sums up perfectly the rotten state of contemporary televisual entertainment.

Rab C Nesbitt last night in a double header.

Brilliant.

First was a regular episode which was spot on followed by an investigation by John Seargeant into Rab and his fellow Glaswegians, done in documentary, interview stylee. Spot on, get it on I Player.

A repeat though nonetheless, Sheeps.  

Saw a bit of Morecambe & Wise, Andre Preview as well as Fozdyke Saga's Eric Porter... all very very funny, as well as Des O'Connor who still makes me smile because he was such a good sport with Eric n Ernie  

I watched that tribute to Mel Smith which somehow I missed before, and that was very well done too, Griff nearly got emotional!

We've mainly been entertained by Netflix and Love Film, started watching My name's Earl and Arrested Development. Also been watching loads of films.

Adventure in Space & Time 'twas excellent, chap who played Hartnell was especially good.
Bit bored with Doctor Who, it's always the Daleks in another story that I don't understand. If there wasn't a pretty assistant all the dads would stop watching it, well I would anyway.

Mad Dogs, still to watch 2nd half but they spent 40 mins at a wedding reception in the first one. I'm hoping for improvement.

Watched Sherlock the other day. Quite entertaining but not sure I can put up with him being such a dick much longer, and also Holmes being so wet.
