    TV Series/Netflix/Box Sets

    There’s some pretty good stuff on BBC Scotland - Channel 457 on Sky. I’m particularly looking forward to ‘Scotland: Contains Strong Language’ this evening at 10pm which claims to chart the colourful history of Caledonian cursing. How is that not going to be funny?

    Shankly: Nature’s Fire

    Well worth a watch on BBC iplayer. Lawro does the PNE bit. Shanks says that he wasn’t keen on joining us from Carlisle because he was only getting 10 shillings more and he was further from home. His brother Alec told him that it wasn’t what he was getting, it was about the opportunity of...

    TV Series/Netflix/Box Sets

    Have watched all ten episodes of the first season now. It’s very good indeed. I know subtitles are a step too far for some of you but, if you don’t believe me, Ricky Gervais thinks it’s “one of the best police dramas of all time”. I was hoping to find a celebrity fan with a bit more gravitas...

    Is anyone else not missing the footy?

    It’s an interesting aspect of the whole situation. Once you’ve broken the habit, do you go back? That could equally to the footy, your favourite restaurant or some of the fake friends you acquire just cos you happen to be starting a family at the same time. I don’t for one moment regret...

    First single and first album you ever bought.

    I can remember that the first album I was given was Prince Charming. I think the first singles I bought were Shout by Tears for Fears and Since Yesterday by Strawberry Switchblade on the same day in early 1985.

    What Are You Listening To?

    I think Once I Saw the River Clean is still my favourite, especially the bit where his grandma buys some fags and he buys the T-Rex single.

    TV Series/Netflix/Box Sets

    On the BBC website there’s a link to the “entire Louis Theroux archive”. Seems to me that there is an episode missing.

    TV Series/Netflix/Box Sets

    I’ve just noticed that the female cop in Carter is none other than the great (and not dead) Sidney Poitier’s daughter. For someone born in 1973, she’s also aged very well too. Not unlike me, in fact.

    Yes fair enough. His goals in just one particular match puts him right up there! Still got my Tony Ellis t-shirt somewhere though. Can’t fit in it like. I’ve even got fond memories of Tony Ellis Mk 1. The fat get with the long hair. And that overhead kick......
