RTE Holding Reins Of Ridiculous Schedule Stagecoach

January 22, 2011


The Daily Mail on Friday suggested the start of what would probably be a largely fruitless campaign to get our national broadcaster to show Mad Men, the cult genius show, at a more agreeable time of night. Stupid o’clock on a Monday night doesn’t really cut it for most people. Sandwiching it between a rerun […]

The Voice of GAA Hangs Up The Mic

September 20, 2010


. Thursday 16th September 2010: . I am driving to Dublin with my mother. Although I am a CD and MP3 person, my mother insists we listen to the radio on the trip northwards so Today FM is displayed across the LCD screen. . Ray D’Arcy is reading out texts, one of which grabs my […]

The Inherent Stupidity of Irish People

July 23, 2010


A few months ago Philip Voucher-Hayes (I think it was) jetted off to an abandoned estate of condos which had been purchased by a number of Irish couples whom it turned out, were all scammed out of their money. It was an eye-opener, not for me personally as I can barely afford a pack of […]

We’ve got Mad Men on Monday nights, Damages on Tuesday and new addition, US detective drama Castle on Saturday nights, all airing at around […]

January – A Haven of TV…

January 10, 2010


…but does it all have to be on Sunday and Monday nights? . Don’t get me wrong. January is great. Sure it might be International “Broke and Fat” month, after the Christmas period. It might be the month when, if you’re in Ireland, you got an unmerciful amount of snow, which in normal circumstances we’d […]

Flash Forward – A Flash of the new Lost?

January 7, 2010


There are two ways of reviewing ABC’s new series Flash Forward. You can review separately as a singular show, on its own merit. Or you can review it as the baby cousin of Lost, in whose shadow most thriller series will sit for a long while yet.  . Flash Forward is designed straight from the […]
