Robin Hood

Robin Hood is coming to BBC America. I am looking forward to it for Richard Armitage alone (FIONE!). Can anyone tell me what he or she thinks about Robin Hood? With all of modern technology, I do not understand why I cannot get the same BBC programming that BBC is providing to Britain at the same time. What is this six months to a year delay? I am paying for my DirecTV. (I own that as sounding like a bratty American!).

I am no big fan of Doctor Who, however, I had no clue that David Tennant from Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire, also the delightfully funny Mr. Gibson in He Knew He Was Right is now playing Doctor Who, because the episodes we are currently getting still have Christopher Eccleston as Doctor Who.

  1. It is tosh, made for kids, but that can be fun!
    Though, the sherriff of Nottingham is a pretty good baddy. I just wish the BBC would try harder to be more inclusive and the bloody-well have a de-private-shoolisiation and to de-‘Oxbridge’-ise the upper echelons of the high-handed wankers who treat nepotism as a way to wash their hands of the crap output they deal us “lower orders”.
    And to watch more television themselves, as its rather embarressing to be caught ‘in’ when they could be enjoying canapés with Arabella and Tarquin.



  2. Yes I did read somewhere they were making fun of the acting in Robin Hood, that it was for kids. Well I think Harry Potter is for kids and I can deal with that. So we will see. I will have to digest, thus, research everything else you said. LOL!

    God I need to rant about, In the City, Mile High, Footballer’s Wives, No Angels, UGH!!!!! What horrors I tell you!


  3. Like a cucumber sandwich. How quaint. We shall have some together and make fun of someone. LOL!

    A canapé or canape (known in Italy as tartine) is a small, prepared and usually decorative hors d’oeuvres, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite. A canapé may also be referred to as finger food, although not all finger foods are canapés. Crackers or small slices of bread or toast cut into various shapes serve as a base for such savory foods as meat, cheese, fish, caviar, foie gras, purees or relish.

    Traditionally, canapés are made from stale white bread, cut in thin slices and then shaped with a cutter or knife. Shapes might include circles, rings, squares, strips or triangles. These pieces of bread are then prepared by Deep frying, Sautéeing, or Toasting

    The foods are sometimes highly processed and decoratively applied (i.e. piped) to the base with a pastry bag. Decorative garnishes are then applied. The canapés are usually served on a canapé tray and eaten from small canapé plates.


  4. Channel 4 is having some great series on : “Shameless” is set on a council estate and everyone knows they’re fucked, but that’s aside that the storylines really pay-off in the most whats-the-fukkin-british-for-fackin-schadenfreude-yer-twat? kinda way.

    Blair hates the idea that his country hasn’t embraced his control-freak policies.

    I have to say I really loved “No Angels” and “Teachers”. The disgust/dismay-moments are as regularly paced out as a “laugh” would be found in Friends (every 34.2 seconds).

    Depressing maybe, but shit being dealt wih by “reality” can be a way better way to pretend things all come together nicely.

    And it ensures the next episode will happen.

    I’m trying to show you we are grotesques.


  5. And smut is okay in a Midsomer Murders kind of way. I just hate the hollywoodish model run way, make up smuttish kind of smuttynish.


  6. Ha Ha In a kind of way, er yes. . . . the other thing I see is the booze and the pressure of the NHS routine, where they depressed by low wages in a place, like a lot of hospitals, that are being run-down and shut as we speak. SO they’ve got get enjoyment somewhere.
