TALK NERDY TV - MAY 20th 2016
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST.
It’s a bit camp, it’s totally cheesy, in some parts it is actually hard to see past the sheer crapness on show. But it's a bloody tradition many of us watch year in, year out while smashing back our favourite alcoholic tipples and in my case, it's a chance to perv at some euro babes. Somehow a new points system was dropped in adding to the excitement. It was beyond any doubt the most barmy way of doing it, but it did actually work. It was in the end victory for Ukraine, with a song i thought was awful. Clearly I am not swapping jobs with Simon Cowell any time soon.
GAME OF THRONES.
Finally welcome to the heroes side after 3 fairly poor episodes. There was one easy to see reason why this episode was brilliant. Go back to how underwhelming episode 1 was with it’s horrendous titty shot, and then compare with the truly glorious boobies in flames shot we were given here. Of course boobs were not the only reason this has made it to the heroes side. It really was a much stronger episode and genuinely gets the pulse racing for next week's, which will surely follow on with something awesome from here.
Without spoilers it's difficult to really express how genuinely brilliant this has been. But poor old Tommy Shelby has had it pretty rough so far this season, and its making for some superb viewings. I think this just might be the best thing on TV right now and I tip my bladed cap to the writers on this one. I am completely hooked.
Often I see drama’s appear on ITV and think, well clearly that's shite as it's on ITV. But fair play on this one, this was a fantastic whodunnit thriller that really kept you guessing. The series came to a climactic end this week and so it gets a deserved mention on the heroes side to salute its farewell. Better than a BAFTA that.
BRITAINS GOT TALENT.
I love my trash TV, but this is becoming worse and worse. It's produced in a way that you can tell instantly whether they are good before they hit the stage which takes away why people love these type of shows. Everyone wants those Susan Boyle moments where you think they will be shite but then they come out and blow the roof off. Then you hear their story, then they show clips of them in their own fucking house telling us their hardships. It's quite bloody obvious that if you're giving them that kind of intro...they will get through. It's just so obvious now it's completely annoying. And don't even get me started on dancing groups and dancing dogs.
TV REMAKES OF FILMS.
I am adding this week a general villain of TV right now. TV Remakes of classic films. Already this year we have been subjected to the shocking portrayal of Rush Hour which hit our small screens. But now we have word that Rocky Horror too is being redone and probably tragically destroyed in front of our eyes. I just don't get why? Some people might think "Well why not?" And to you I want you to go over to your mirror and repeatedly punch yourself in the face whilst telling yourself how stupid you are. No good will come of this and this constant need to rehash old firm favourites really grates on me. Now I may be made to eat my words when the TV adaptation of Westworld hits later this year. But until then, I shall vent my fury at any director, producer or actor who lazily takes other people's ideas from yesteryear and decides to make a quick buck off of them, whilst destroying the legacy of these cult classics in the process.
