Absolutely excellent tv. Just so bloody relaxing to watch. He was a bloody genius. 

I'm also enjoying the classic snooker the BBC are showing at the moment.

Joe Johnson v Steve Davis today. Whispering Ted Lowe commentating. Magic.

:) 

I'm not a massive snooker fan, but I watched Alex Higgins - The People's Champion, BBC 2 showed it on Sunday there, a pretty good programme. Might be on the i-player

Managed to get the VPN up long enough to binge on Quiz. Fucking hell! Fantastic bit of TV. Plus, I didn't expect it to cloud my view on how obviously guilty they all were. Fabulous as ever is Michael Sheen, but I thought Sian Clifford and Matthew Macfadyen as the Ingrams stole the show. Also, Aisling Bea (wid) and Jasmyn Banks (also wid).

It has been criticised by some people who were involved including Chris Tarrant as being heavily biased in favour of making it seem they were innocent (or at least that there was some doubt) but yeah, it was a good wee series. It might have been good to make it a 4 parter to hear more of the court case. In the original play, the audience were given key pads and were the "jury" at the end to determine their guilt or innocence but if they only heard what was in the TV version they'd probably always get off.

I guess when they dedicate the final episode almost entirely to the defense, it's going to appear skewed. I thought they were guilty beforehand, I reckon they still are, but I enjoyed the doubt. Wasn't expecting that.

Raspberry gin and lemonade is very refreshing and with a large measure gives you a decent buzz. And yes I do have a penis.

I'd have gone for a slice of lemon in mine, but each to their own.

Gin is delicious. Any man not trying Gin is scared they will (they will) enjoy it.

Okay good there are gin drinkers here. I need your advice.
The wife wants gin for our wedding, preferably for pink gin but I don't have a clue. We tried pink gin last year which was delicious but no idea what it was.

Are Tanquerey or Beefeater any good? We've been offered these as choices from our drinks supplier.

I'm a fan of Tanquerey, beefeater is more along the line of cooncil gin.

Tanquerey is fine. Beefeater is shite.   Get them to source this. Thank me later.

Recommend a pink gin? But I'm not paying out for a fancy gin if Tanquerey is fine... I want to have enough beer for my boys!

They are both fine.  Tanquery No 10, though, is much superior to both.  I don't drink that much gin but do make a G&T now and then if I have people round and I'd not buy anything else now.

I'm rewatching a  BBC4 documentary on the building of the protective shield over the remains of the Chernobyl reactor   Excellent but shocking at the same time

Gangs of London pretty good on sky atlantic
Simmered along nicely then the end was class.
Enjoyed it. Thought the fight scenes were a bit over choreographed would be my only real negative with it.
