Nice flower

I think she's right, I've been watching too much television.

On RTE One this evening we had 'The Master's Apprentice'.

I can say that in all my days I have never seen a more pointless piece of twaddle. This would make the dullest episode of 'Location Location Location' look like a celebration of the visual arts, such was its codshittedness.

We have a 33-year-old who has discovered the joys of pottery after spending many years in meaningless employ, so she goes to some bigwig in the industry to be mentored for a week.

Of course, she's a natural, and she makes three pots, and they come out of the kiln looking all pretty, yet there isn't even a job on offer for her at the end of this half an hour of drivel, half an hour of my life that would have been better spent listening to some Level 42, or having a shite.

Instead she gets offered a place in some pottery college to learn a trade she's, seemingly, already prodigious at.

To my knowledge it's not even a series, just a one-off stab at something that even TV fucking 3 manage to do a lot better.

I've never been as close to killing my television.

or listening to Spandau Ballet. They haven't gone away you know.

A half hour shite?

You'd leave behind a fair body of work after a half hour Radge. All records broken!

Radge said...

Conan - I knew I'd regret that video. Should have chosen 'Gold'.

Terence - ...after the weekend I just had...

Killitkillitkillit.

I'm not biased, me.

Radge said...

Meadow - "I think you're right."

Down here in Oz, if the road aint covered in bitumen, you wave. Even snobs and city slickers know that.

Sounds ok compared to "mistresses" radge. The characters are so flawed and sick making that I wanted to cut off my own cock lest i ever got involved with them. (in TV land or the real world)

Radge said...

By then, Red, I had given up and turned to literature.

Surely you mean "having a Level 42"

Don't watch programmes on television. That's for fools. Look rather to the internet where all the world's knowledge is at your disposal. This shouldn't really need to be said.

5X - I remember your own gloriously television-free livings. You didn't need to say it.
