Wow what a week for Strictly and one couple in particular. I don''t have to say who as I'm sure we've all ready and seen enough of it all now. I am figuring though to get hold of that gliterball trophy you have to have stamina not only on the dance floor but in your relationship too.
If you saw The Jonathan Ross last night then you would have seen all three judges giving their views on the situation. I love Craig Revel Horwood anyway but he just nailed it all by saying that the curse was sometimes a blessing. He basically said that if your relationship wasn't that strong to start with then it is going to struggle. They all agreed that this kind of thing happens in any workplace in any profession all over the place it's just that of course it is going to here as the programme is so popular.
Well lets hope it all blows over and gets sorted privately now and Seann and Katya can get on with the dancing. Maybe they ought to give drinkies after training a miss but they are through to the next week and to be honest I'm glad. I am a Seann Walsh fan and have been from the start, I don't think he'll win the thing but hey he was doing ok before his mouth accidentally fell on his partners......oh heck!! Bring it back guys and lets move on.
A couple of programmes ended this week. We saw the last episode of Press which I have loved. I took to the drama between the two newspapers, The Herald and The Post. Holly kicked ass and we nearly saw the demise of Duncan but he wasn't going to give up early eh? I do hope this comes back.
It was also the end of Wanderlust too. Now I have had a kind of love hate thing with this series. It must of captured me in some way as I watched it all. I did end up liking it in a way. There was the odd episode when I wondered how I would ever get that time back and that I may have wasted my viewing time but I needed to see what happened. It was a good drama and the cast were brilliant which is the reason it kept me watching. You take a look and see what you think, it is really worth a watch.
Woah so I'm writing this post a little later than usual and have just watched The Cry. I was stuck like glue to the screen, I knew there was something about this abduction that wasn't sitting right but blimey what great drama. I just couldn't help thinking whether someone would actually do this with their baby and then another high profile, true child disappearance kept popping up in my mind. You know the one, is this what could have happened there? Who knows but if you haven't seen this evening's episode do catch up as it's absolutely brilliant. The series concludes next week.
That's where I'm going to leave it for this week. Thank you for reading, please join me again tomorrow for Music Monday but for now......
Woah sorry I'm a bit late I just got completely carried away with Kylie at Hyde Park Live on the Red Button but I'll talk about her tomorrow night because she's all about music. You need to just catch up with the BBC coverage though because there is such big news there. Oh Lordy!!!
So what has been happening this week? Well we've had a new series start called Press which is about two rival newspapers....The Post a tabloid and The Herald which is a more left leaning newspaper. This is a great idea for drama, there are going to be some great stories involving ethics and finding some sort professional balance in this kind of industry. A great start, I liked it, it's going to be a good gritty show to watch. It is written by Mike Bartlett who wrote Doctor Foster so it should be good right? You can find it on BBC1 on Thursday evenings at 9pm. It has a great cast including the great David Suchet, Charlotte Riley from Peaky Blinders and Ben Chaplin from Apple Tree Yard. So give it a go, see what you think.
Another starter this week was Wanderlust which is about a couple who are finding themselves in a situation where their marriage has hit a bit of a rut and the first episode sees them sleeping with other people to see if that's the kind of excitement they need but is it? Well we'll see. Not sure about this one yet, it didn't grab me completely but I'll give it a chance and see what happens. I want to like it as it has Toni Collette starring in it whom I love after seeing her in Muriels Wedding amongst other things. and also Steven Mackintosh who is also a great actor. It could turn out quite entertaining, I would never have thought of putting these two actors together but it will be interesting to see how it goes. I've only seen one episode and I never judge a tv show on just one viewing so I will come back to that.
If anyone is wondering where my views on Age Before Beauty went well that was one I had to leave behind. I did watch a few but for me it just wasn't enough to keep me watching. Some people did find it to their taste though so that's good, we can't all like the same things. If I come back to it I'll let you know.
If you have been watching Stan Lee's Lucky Man another series has concluded there. What a great series, I just love this and didn't Rupert Penry-Jones make the ultimate baddy? My goodness I so wanted James Nesbitt to sort him out. A lot of ups and downs and losses too but it looks as though it may have been left open for another series. I hope so.
I will hopefully catch you tomorrow for Music Monday, it's been a busy weekend with Proms in the Park at Hyde Park in London which I attended so I will be chatting about that. Thank you for being here this evening though and you all take care.
Pass the Remote
