    Decisions ... Decisions !

    Do I post individual post replies ?   Or go for the @ button ?

    Guess the @ button won Smile

    @Zand .....yes that ending in 'The Missing' was not easy viewing. I think the storyline is progressing well though.

    @Andy ..... I'm reliably informed, by younger family members, that both 'The Hunger Games' and 'Turtles' are well worth seeing.

    @Paul ..... Turtles, always has been a family favourite, and the grandchildren are now enjoying it too.

    @Mo ..... Lucky you seeing the stage play of Warhorse. From memory it did have teething problems, but in the end all was sorted. The film was brilliant.
    As for I'm a Celebrity - not on my TV you're not !  lol!
    But then TV choice is up to the viewer and Eddie would not watch Strictly or The X Factor.

    Life is about choice .....and the on / off switch is handy.

    All the best Jan

    New Year and a new look to Saturday Night Viewing    -    it's The Voice on BBC1 and Spiral on BBC4 in our living room.

    Re - The Voice. I thought both Hannah Symons 'Powerless' and Stevie McCrorie version of 'All I Want' was amazing.

    Re - Spiral. It lived up to it's write up I saw in The Guardian " Spiral’s biggest triumph is in mixing the high-octane thrills of a strong police procedural – foot chases, murders and shock twists – with the sophisticated, State of Play-style dissection of endemic corruption: patronage, cover-ups and career-long vendettas."

    Are you following any favourite TV shows / series at the moment?

    If like me and Eddie you like The Lake District I think you'll enjoy this BBC 4 programme.  It is a beautiful 'cinematic documentary following a year in the life of England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, through the eyes of the farmers who work the valleys and fells, those who climb the mountain for pleasure and those who try to protect its slopes.…'

    If you have some time to spare it's well worth viewing - here is the link to the BBC 'player' http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04y4gd7  I think the film is available for about a month from today's date.

    I recorded that for watching later, should be good.  I've climbed Helvellyn and walked around Wastwater but never been up Scafell Pike.

    Can't believe it's Saturday Night again and I'm managing to cope without Strictly  lol!

    I think it will be 'The Voice' and then 'Spiral' ......... looking out of the window brrrr it looks cold so a nice evening in front of the TV is quite enticing, (what do you think dear??  Rolling Eyes )

    Enjoy your Saturday viewing - you may of course have a good dvd to watch.

    For us-We've got some 'Silent witness' recorded to catch up on and then a DVD in the warm with a bottle of Red. Smile Toying between some classic Stephen King or Dirty Harry,the one with Andy Robinson as Scorpio...Over 40 years old now the movie but still a great movie.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Another great TV programme we've been following is Walking The Nile (Channel 4 Sunday evening)

    Explorer Levison Wood sets out on a nine-month walk along the length of the River Nile, visiting rainforests, deserts, cities and war zones, and encountering modern Africa, its people and its wildlife. The journey takes Lev from the Source of the Nile to the sea. The people, sights, wildlife and surprises he encounters are amazing, some are happy, some are sad. It took him nine months to  walk through Africa ........ I think it's one to watch, you can catch it on Channel 4 player link here

    I see Britain's Got Talent has kicked off with auditions being held in Edinburgh - wont be too long before it will be on our TV screens. On the plus side you could say the acts are often varied !

    More money for Simon Cowell I think ! ?

    Yeah I know it's car crash TV but I like it. Who remembers the great Stavros Flattley lol ! The only thing I'm not impressed with is the fact that many of these "unknown acts" are pretty much professional artists headhunted by the production team.

    These two guys were / are fantastic and you just can't help laughing.

    I hope they continue to do well they seem a great pairing.

    That's why 'Britain's Got Talent' is a good variety show. Who says variety is dead?

    'W O T' Exclamation

    No Dermot on the X Factor next series - would you have any suggestions who may take his place?

    I believe it's Caroline Flack and Olly Murs who are in front of the queue to replace him.
