Ambulance
"Fly on the wall" BBC documentary series. Fantastic stuff and a real eye opener
Jeremy Hunt should be made to watch this on repeat


Yes, probably the most riveting programme on telly at the moment.

Caught up on the 3 part channel 5 documentary about the UK Cocaine habitat - never done the drug myself and certainly wouldn't want to - especially after seeing the state of everyones hands that were cutting and distributing the drug - don't think any of them have washed their hands in weeks!!!

Even when I was a bit naughty, naughty, very naughty in the '90s (the halcyon days of dance music), I never, ever understood the allure of coke, especially as amphetamine isn't addictive like coke is, has much longer lasting effects and tends not to turn you into an instant b£llend.  :)

Billions - series 3 episode 6 loved the intro/outro music - had to Google it - Son Volt - Sinking Down, cracking slide guitar swamp blues vibe - they do pick some great music for this show.

Loved it so much at the cinema, bought it on Bluray.
Have become a tiny bit obsessed with The Room and Tommy Wiseau. The Room might be an awful movie, but I howl like a drain when I watch it.
Have bought Greg Sestero's book, which I shall be diving into shortly.  :D

Managing England :The Impossible Job
Documentary about being England football manager. Excellent.
Scotland 78: A Love Story
Also excellent, the tale of the Scots' journey to Argentina, the hype, the issues and ultimate failure...
Both recommended

The Greasy Strangler

I suppose enjoyment of this depends on how much you like “cult” comedy horror movies.

It’s fairly amusing at times and wears its cheapo crapness and crudeness on its sleeve.  Definitely not for everyone though.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe

Cracking horror film for the first half of it, then increasingly loses its way as things start to unravel.  Still, much better than most modern “chillers”.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

Good - thoroughly deserved Oscars for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.

Whitehouse & Mortimer: Gone Fishing


The comics team up to fish and cogitate on life, the universe and everything after heart issues.


Wonderful

Happened upon something on BBC2 called No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free?

In which a physician goes into a school to change gender stereotypes that he personally finds politically incorrect and replaces them with ones that don't make him intellectually squeamish.

Disgraceful programme where a regressive left numpty imposes his chronically muddle-headed "gender-neutral" identity politics on primary school children.  Commits every gender fallacy and clanger in the book; overcompensates, guilty of serial confirmation bias, littered with non sequiturs and false dichotomies, puts the cart before the horse, doesn't seem to appreciate that gender balances become inevitably more volatile as young children grow...

"Girls shouldn't aspire to be Princesses", he says without any apparent self-awareness, as he empties a 7-year-old child's wardrobe of a Princess outfit.  WTF?  As if it precludes achievement in the real world?

Where's Jordan Peterson when you need him?  ::)
