Have seen Parasite now. Very good but not the sort of film I'd want to see again unlike some others I could name. (3 Billboards, Green Book, La La Land etc)

Interested to hear what people think of The Irishman and Uncut Gems.

I couldn't finish Uncut Gems and The Irishman was seriously flawed and way too long.

Absolutely love Early Doors.
Me too but if you haven't seen this you should. Le diner de cons:

P.S. 'Aux chiottes L'OM' roughly translated means 'in the crapper L'OM' as a response to the chant 'allez L'OM', L'OM being the abbreviated name of Olympique de Marseille

Been watching some more oldies this week. Still Game is a particular favourite. The antics of Jack and Victor never fail to cheer me up.

Still Game's great once you attune to the Glasgow patter.

I confess that I pinched the line about Terrence Rigby's hair being 'Paul McCartney brown' from Still Game but I'm not sure anyone noticed.

I watched The Wizard of Lies again last night. I'd seen it twice before but it was worth watching again if only for the brilliant performance of Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff.

It was a huge story, of course, that boiled to down to how easily folks are persuaded to believe what they want to believe and can't be bothered to check whether it adds up or not. In Bernie's eyes, they were the ones to blame not him

I couldn't help fantasising that if anyone thought about writing a book about Bolton Wanderers financial difficulties, as seen through the eyes of the Bolton News, they might call it The Wazzock of Iles.

Nostalgia may not be what it used to be but I watched Bill Naughton's Spring and Port Wine last night bringing back memories of the construction of St Peter's Way and Deangsate as it was in 1969.

I always remembered the junction of Deansgate and Bradshawgate as being upscale, as our friends across the pond might put it. Preston's occupied one corner with the Swan Hotel diametrically opposite. A smart children's wear shop occupied the third corner and an equally smart shoe shop, Vernon Humpage, the fourth.

I remember Vernon Humpage for two reasons. My wife still has a boxed pair of high quality shoes made in Paris but bought from Vernon Humpage in the late sixties.

Quite a number of years later, I was tasked with enquiring of a smartly-dressed Mr Humpage as to the whereabouts of the missing accounts of Blackpool Boys Club, where he was Hon. Treas. His answers didn't convince me.

I took no part in later proceedings but it seems that his answers didn't convince the jury either.

I'm not a great one for living in the past.

Although I'm not a great one for some of the changes I've seen in my lifetime so far, I accept that change does need to take place in order to move forward but I don't need to cling on to the past for my comfort blanket.

After saying this though I stumbled upon an episode of 'Callan' the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though the programme was first broadcast in 1970 - fifty years ago!

Another little gem that I also like is 'Rumpole' that was initially aired in 1975 (although ran on and off until 1992).

To balance things though I do enjoy current stuff as well, for instance I've seen My Country, right from the start, the same too with Inside No 9.

One current and unheralded programme I would recommend people to watch is Win the Wilderness, which might not sound too promising from it's description - six couples fight it out to win a remote home in Alaska - but has me in awe at the couple who originally built the home - Duane and Rena Ose and their de facto assessor of the couples, CJ.

If anybody wants to give it a go the series is still running on the BBC and the early episodes can be seen here on iplayer -

I've been enjoying some old school TV myself. Gideon's Way, starring John Gregson is set in a rose tinted Britain that probably never existed, but should have.
'Cor blimey guv, it's a fair cop'.
It's full of decent actors, many of whom went on to make big names for themselves, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it.

Just seen the film and it's a real shock to the system. We had no idea beforehand. Forget Corona virus.....this is far more horrific!

I'm a big fan of Inside No. 9 but I thought the latest series was inconsistant with some weak episodes like Love's Great Adventure and The Stakeout.

Norpig I see you are a Curb Your Enthusiasm fan, what do you think of the current series? Personally I have found it a bit a disappointing. The situations just seem more contrived and less funny.

Have to agree. Still some classic moments, but I think the envelope has been pushed as far as it can go without falling off the edge of the cliff.

Yes the trip to Mexico episode was the worst I've seen. The whole thing was so unbelievable.

The English Game is interesting on a number of levels as it explores how football in the 1870's evolved from an exclusively upper class affair to involve the working classes and centres around Darwen FC who got to play serial winners Old Etonians in the FA Cup.
Apparently based on a true story it has a few flaws notably ignoring the evolution of the game over the previous 50 years and the Downton Abbey stylings in which the toffs are portrayed but nonetheless it's a good watch for aficionados of football history and the class struggle.
You may also recognise some of the locations.

BTW if your interested in local football history before it became a professional game I sent in a couple of articles to the mods a few years back about the roots of the Bolton team dating back to the 1840s - presumably they've been archived but I wouldn't know where to find them now however the mods (James) might know.

One of them is a newspaper article about a Bolton v Blackburn match played at the Old Bolts ground in Turton in front of a crowd of 40 odd thousand in 1845?

If you have a spare 7 and a half hours and lets be honest who doesn't at the moment then i recommend the Storyville documentary on OJ Simpson on the iplayer. 

Its the whole story on his early life and NFL career and all the infamy that followed after. Well worth a watch and very interesting especially with all the civil rights and the racism in America.

I hope they devoted at least two episodes to Nordberg.

Cult series from back in the day - sort of pre-Spooks type thing.

Seems to me to have stood the test of time mostly.

I enjoyed it anyway.

(Note it takes 20 seconds or so to lead into the video and also similar with 'advert' breaks in between.  Also a lot of over-run at the end, so the actual video is much less than the time showing it to be).

Surprised nobody's mentioned, 'Alma's not normal' based in Bolton and typical of Boltononian observational wit. Here's the Guardian review. Check it out

I did watch it Ten Bob and thought it was good and had a great cast. The line about pasties and them being ye olde would only have been understood by Boltonians  Very Happy
