During the final ad break of last night’s BSG a promo for Sky’s 10 o’clock news came on. It had one headline. Do you know what that was? The main news story was that Tom Cruise was going to… shock horror, a film premiere. And not just any premiÃ¨re, but one for Mission Impossible III, a film he starred in.
Now I can easily see that making the news, after all entertainment is news nowadays, but for it to be the headline event?
Was yesterday a slow news day? Couldn’t they have come up with anything better? A cat stuck up a tree’d make for a more interesting story if you ask me.
And, speaking of animal rescues a new programme all about the various SPCAs started last night. And one of the people being investigated was this old fella living in the middle of Connemara. He was just a typical auld lad, turf fire, couple of dogs and cats, sheep farmer. These sorts of bachelor farmers were pretty much gone at this stage, but he was still there, “walking 5 mile upa mountain” every day. Yer wan from the Galway SPCA took two of his dogs off him. He wasn’t really abusing them or anything, just underfeeding them, one tin of dog food between two working sheep dogs and a puppy doesn’t go far. But she left him the puppy, on the understanding that it’d be fed properly.
Oh, and don’t get too used to the current theme, because I’m thinking of going red in support of Munster in the lead up to the final on May 20th. It may not happen, we’ll see.
And seeing as I mentioned BSG, I’m a bit undecided about this season. there is so much that’s really great about this show, but they have these annoying habits. First off there is the slightly over-done documentary style. They just seem to over use it a tad, and for no realy purpose. Then there is the flashbacks, again, over-used. And now they seem to be Show Spoiler ▼
but it seems like they find a way of doing something, a way that is sometimes excellent, and then over do it to death.
And while I’m talking about tv I may as well mention Lost. We had a good episode on Monday. I know. I’m shocked too. things happened. The story progressed. Yes there were flashbacks but not silly pointless ones. And Show Spoiler ▼
course they’ll probably ruin this by recapping and doing nothing for the next five weeks.
