Roger Moore says it in Octopussy! Random...not.

Now on season 8 of Birds of a Feather. Mixed feelings on this one as there are still funny moments but the characters are more caricatures of their former selves and therefore not as believable or funny. This is a common trait in a lot of long running comedy shows. Friends being a prime example

I just finished a marathon/speedrun of "Friends" at the request of a friend who couldn't believe I'd never seen an episode in my entire life (I saw about 4 episodes in college and I couldn't get into it much).

So what do you think of it now?
I catch the occasional repeats, and although it's dated, it can still make me laugh.

You are the man who knew too much! You should go on Mastermind, specialist topic: ...............?
My specialist topic would be stating the bleeding obvious. Now THAT is a TV quote but I can't remember from which show...Rojkerr...?
Is it Fawlty Towers? Basil?

It's aged quite poorly in my opinion, and although it can make me chuckle (but not necessarily laugh out loud), I felt like it overstayed its welcome and became more of a live-action cartoon before eventually becoming a soap opera.

Didn't take long to get through the six Birds of a Feather episodes of season 8, so I am now on season 11 of The Two Ronnies. So far the two episodes I have seen are an improvement on season 10 but still a long way short of their 70s hey-day.

Just finished watching all of Man About the House. Still very funny. It comes across as being a period piece rather than being outdated. Of course, some of the attitudes are eye rolling but it does make fun of them and does not let any character get away with anything. And, of course, the pairing of Yootha Joyce and Brian Murphy is fantastic. Watching George and Mildred next actually. Now this does creak a bit in the hinges but it still has the laughs.

Series 11 of The Two Ronnies was 5 episodes of 35 minutes rather than the usual 40/45 minute length so I got through that one very quickly. I think it was wise to lose nearly 10 minutes per episode because the quality of the writing certainly wasn't on par with previous series.

I am now on my final Birds of a Feather season - number 8. It started with a poor episode about a ghost and the second was only marginally better. Thankfully only six episodes in total this final series.

Charity and I have become hooked on this amazing HBO show..... Barry. Really sharp writing and unpredictable.

The Crown, starring Claire Foy as Elizabeth II and Matt Smith as Prince Philip.

Prince Philip reminds me so much of the first Doctor... or maybe that's Matt, or maybe it's both....
 
Child Of Auron
So I have just finished my run of Birds of a Feather. After 8 series it was certainly a roller coaster, sometimes hilariously funny and sometimes painstakingly dull. Two of my discs broke on this re-watch and I am not sure if I want to replace them or not.

Now I am moving on to the 12th and final series of The Two Ronnies

Someone has loaned me The Good Wife box set so I bingedwatched the 1st series. Very watchable.

Upstart Crow - comedy series about the life and work of Shakespeare. Very Blackadder-ish, which is hardly surprising as it's written by Ben Elton. Brilliant and laugh-out-loud funny, with great performances by all the cast. Highly recommended, whether or not you're familiar with Shakespeare Smile

I have finished The Two Ronnies. They clearly had their heyday in the late 70s and the four series from the 80s were particularly hard to get through. I have a Christmas special compilation to get through and then it will be time to start something new from the second half of the alphabet.

Talking of which having finished Birds of a Feather it is time to start the next series from the first half of the alphabet.

Not sure if anyone has heard of it but it is a sci-fi series from the late 70s/early 80s. Not sure if it was any good as it only lasted 4 years and even the leading man got out after 2 years Grin

There's now a fan-vid of Avengers Endgame..

spoiler alert...



They have removed all scenes with POC speaking, women speaking and gays speaking...

Which leaves one wondering who is the villain now since Thanos is purple? Where is Rocket?
Do Korg and Meik still have a role to play?

I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me.
