First from continental Europe I believe.

Also the first whose first language is not English.

I've just finished three series of Those Who Kill. One more to go. Another excellent Danish cop show on iPlayer.

Yep, enjoyed that.

I really wouldn’t recommend Helsinki Murders from Walter Presents though - one of the poorest examples of the genre IMHO.

We often do not switch the tv on all day/night, the news is no longer that but often sensationalist untruths, anyone remember the comedy "Drop the dead donkey" well it seems it's now a reality.
Repeats or re-hashes of old programs, absolute carp, we used to get better programs when there was on lt terrestrial tv, satellite/cable has killed it. I watch more on youtube these days.

There’s plenty of good stuff but you’ve got to know where to look (or just hack my Sky recordings).

Speaking of Sky. I had Whitehouse plumbers recomended to me. Quirky, but a good watch non the less.

Been to anything good recently Justin?

I was at The Man Who Swallowed a Dictionary at the Lyrics couple of weeks ago - a one man show about the life of David Ervine.
Stunning performance. I believe it's touring the province and I would thoroughly recommend.

Burnt Out, again the Lyric, next Tues.

Just musicals this summer Merv.

Treated the wife to a box at Mrs Doubtfire whilst we were over the water for the cricket.

The ROH staged a pretty decent Evita the other week too. The lady off the breakfast show on U105 was on our row. Anyone know what’s happened to Jerry Lang btw?

Got tickets for Burnt Out on the day of the Connacht game - needed a(nother) reason not to go!
