My dad has a bad habit of kissing teeth. When he last visited I explained to him that was a massive no no around here. I also had to tell my mum to watch him, as he doesn't even know he does it. He scared me a couple of times. He meant no offence, it's just a habit he has.

"Who dis man?"
"He didn't mean it, let's get out of here"
"Arra shur tsssssssphhhh, what's wrong?"
"Shut up dad"
"Fuckin' Jaysus"

mentioned it here already but Top Boy Summerhouse(season 1 and 2)/Top Boy (season 3) is absolutely fantastic. Not finished it yet but so far absolutely no filler. Some cool Brian Eno work at times throughout too

Started Marcella as a back up. Anna Friel mystery/crime/drama thing that seems pretty good. same writer as the dude that wrote Broen
Not this?

First series or two of Top Boy is mad kitchen sink, social realist fare but most recent really amps up the argot and the gangster ism. Interesting tonal shift.

Just watching an episode of Poirot on tv (not that I have a tv) there and it's set in Chinatown, and they have the da of the Chinese family on Father Ted on it, haha. Poirot, a great a bunch of lads!
Ha, I was watching that one but missed him. The acting was shocking in that one, there was one woman that we weren’t sure if she was meant to be American or someone with a brain injury.

Watching Miss Marple from the early 2000s. I'll preface this by saying, it is very white, like Jeeves and Wooster white. But it is absolutely brilliant.

Im on series 2 now and every episode has a brand new cast, working their way through a who's who of English luvvies. John Sessions is tearing it up tonight.

Guaranteed a few hotties per show. Last night had Keeley Hawes and Claire Skinner. Previous night was a frankly unreal looking Amanda Holden in full on Hitchcock fashion.

Series link that shit.

Me other half is an Agatha Christie nut and pretty much only accepts the Geraldine McEwan years, she'll happily watch Marple and Poirot for 12 hours straight though.

I watched Once Upon A Time In Iraq, grim af obvs. Felt like there should have been a few more episodes before ISIS.
Also half way through A Kind Of Loving tv series from the 80s, it's excellent.

Gutted to find out she only did 3 series. Even more gutted to find out that she has passed away.

was watching the 160 million match i.e. play off final from Wembley -
Fulham 2-0 Brentford a.e.t.
when i became aware during second half what was happening in Manchester
@ Old Trafford -

England 328 all out (49.5) Ireland 329-3 (also with one ball left)
three Irish lads Balbirnie, Stirling and England captain Morgan got centuries.

then switched back just in time to see Fulham go 1-0 up after 104 minutes.

Sorry Unicorn, of course you're dead right !

Brentford's goal was in the fourth (and final) minute of injury time at the end of extra time.
I did see it but totally forgot.
