I spotted that 'hands' is now on youtube this morning so I'll be blending that with my usual diet of DIY related youtube watching. My uncle will watch teletext and GAA and that's pretty much 2019 sorted till GOT kicks off.
Currently enjoying the "One Day" programme on RTE, I think it's called One Day anyway. Last night they followed people in the Clean Up industry.
I can certainly sympathise with the people who were doing this work and the conflict they all seemed to have. They all enjoyed cleaning up and got satisfaction from doing it and the "greater good" but they all had huge rage issues with people. Especially the youngish chap working in Thorntons; so angry with the world. He was my fav.
Yeah I really liked Maniac as well. It has one of the most original aesthetics i've seen in a show, a real grab bag of 40 years of sci-fi stuff. Wasn't mad on the ending but it didn't wreck it the way a lot of Netflix stuff gets wrecked.
i had same reaction as a kid (back then) in middle of nowhere who never seemed to come across anything fun in Ireland and looked abroad for inspiration, which is sad.
it was only much later I realized there were lots of folks who felt the same
way and all of them were much more talented than me to boot.
on Christmas Eve BBC 4 did a programme look back at highlights of UK Christmas TV from 1988 - mostly light entertainment hell.
Reminds me, WWF fans - there was a tribute broadcast to Gene Okerlund
(legendary commentator). my young nephew was engrossed in it.
didn't see it but he said it was cool.
