TV Days

Did anyone see Casualty the other night?  It was hilarious!  We always have a laugh watching the series; what with people getting blown up and burnt and overturning in huge lorries and crashing vehicles in bizarre and interesting ways which not even Jeremy Clarkson would have thought of; and presenting with weird and obscure diseases – and what with the staff all going out with each other and marrying each other and not seeming to have a life outside the hospital (except when they leave their shift to go and sort out the personal lives of the patients, which they do on a regular basis) – altogether ‘Casualty’ is a laugh a minute.  And the latest episode didn’t disappoint.

I never really ‘bought’ Max and Zoe as a couple.  He’s a lightweight, she’s a professional (except that – and I’m sorry to have to say this because it sounds really judgemental) she has the morals of an alley-cat.  OK let’s put that in a slightly more PC way.  She is blown hither and thither by the winds of circumstance and whim (hey, the winds of whim – that’s a good phrase) and the night before her wedding she goes and sleeps with someone.  She feels terrible, nearly calls the wedding off but then it happens and then hey presto! along comes Dylan to wreck it all by blurting out ‘Oh, so you told him then?’ after they’ve got spliced.  Everything goes awry after that and it ends with two terrifically explosive fires in which probably the entire cast dies.

Brilliant!

On holiday I mostly watched the tennis as it was great to see it live.  And last night there was an absolutely brilliant new episode of ‘Goodness Gracious Me’ based in India.  You must watch!  The ‘Brownadder’ episode is particularly mention-worthy.

  1. thanks for another good read…brownadder? can you sat that these days?

      It was not I who said it but the Asian actors on Ggm. And anyway brownvis not offensive surely? If I’m white and black people are black then why not? I’m not sure about’yellow’ though. Mind you I thought all the furore about Benedict Cumberbatch saying ‘coloured’ was ridiculous

      • it is all ridiculous, I said it with toungue in cheek. But actually there are no black people, they are shades of brown, and ive never seen yellow people except in Springfield, and Ive never seen white people either. We are all actually coloured people……..as expressed by Lucien Frued.

  2. I’ve never seen “Casualty” but is sounds like “The Archers” but in a hospital instead of a farm.
