Well the football continues to dominate my telly and I'm sure a lot of tv's all over the world really. The pubs are heaving especially on an England game here and to be honest I'm really enjoying it.
There are some very exciting matches and the VAR is proving to be very controversial. VAR is Video Assistant Referee so by using video footage the correct decisions can be made. Well you'd think so but I'm sure more mistakes are being made from what I've seen so far. Oh well it's adding a bit of excitement and it has got us all talking about it.
We are now in the final sixteen knockout games and already some of the big teams are going out such as Germany, Portugal and Argentina. Does this mean England have a chance? Oh goodness knows eh? We always have this hope but then it usually gets dashed.... well.......about now really. We play again on Tuesday evening at 7pm against Columbia so fingers crossed everyone.
They play on the ITV jinx.....it's ok we seem to always lose on ITV but do well on BBC. That's just a myth surely......a silly superstition. As long as the players don't spend to much time lying down on the ground we should get a good game played. I'm not on about our lads so much but my goodness there are some that milk it for a few minutes of extra time. Some of them should have babies, that stings a little from experience I can tell you. I saw something the other day on Facebook which was quite funny. It referred to players having so many tattoos but then they don't seem to have the same pain threshold when playing a game of football.
I'm tending to watch the same programmes at the moment so I will get back to our great dramas later but I need to go back to my footy. I think I will miss it when it goes. I've never enjoyed shouting at the tv so much in ages and half the time I don't quite know what I'm shouting about. I just hope that if anyone hears me I'm talking great football sense, just like the commentators. I don't know whether I agree with Gary Lineker or would just like to pinch a packet of Walkers Crisps from him..........do you think he has a pack of cheese and onion at half time? Bet he does or we may catch him with a pack of Golden Wonder now that would be massive controversy.
Ok lets see what happens this week but all the best to England and if there is no Pass the Remote next week it's because I'm sulking.....no not really I'll be here. Join me tomorrow for Music Monday if ya fancy but for now take care of yourselves.
Well welcome back Poldark but chuffin eck my nerves were shattered by the end of this week of tv with this and Our Girl. It was drama at it's best and what a start to the new series on Sunday. Ross and Demelza are making a go of it and patching up their differences after they have both experienced a little bit of loving in the arms of someone else.
Well they are very sexy attractive people and they are bound to attract some attention but the drama really lay with other family members this week. Oh I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see whether Demelza's brothers were actually going to be executed. I thought to myself this can't surely happen as there is a bit of an unfinished love interest going on with Drake and Morwenna. We have got to see that woman get away from the Reverend and get together with Drake......for that reason alone he couldn't hang. I held my breath waiting for that decision and that nasty George Warleggan would sooner lie and see injustice on Demelza as a way to get at Ross. Someone needs to wipe that smirk of his face.
Oh sorry my fellow brewsters I was getting a bit carried away then but that man does annoy me. I'm sure Jack Farthing who plays him is lovely and he is playing him so well but blimey I do want Ross to get one over on him......again. The story follows later tonight at 9pm on BBC1. Please let me breath a bit easier tonight. Phew.
Another tense moment was with Our Girl. Oh heck they went off piste and got themselves captured. Mr Big Boots Captain 'Bones' McClyde waded in and saved the day and a few lives there which we all thank him for but he is so cocky isn't he? I know it's early days but do you think he may be her new love interest? Eventually when they've stopped rubbing each other the wrong way. Who knows but I like Bones.....he's a bit naughty and brash but he will be interesting to watch.
The tv has been taken over by some sort of football tournament.....yes its the 2018 World Cup. I do like it and I am watching it, although I must admit I'm not a massive football fan but I do like these big tournaments. It just means there is less of the other stuff to watch though. I suppose it is summer so no one is staying in and watching telly.....you're all outside barbecuing eh?
One drama I have stumbled on is another BBC Wales series. It's called Hidden and is available on the BBC iplayer. It is a good crime drama about a girl who goes missing and a body is discovered. It basically follows the story of this girls murder and the investigation of others that may have gone missing in the same way. There has only been two episodes so far so that may be one to watch if you need a crime drama fix.
Well enjoy the summery evenings and the World Cup.....there are plenty of games to come along. Englands first game is tomorrow evening at 7pm on BBC1 so fingers crossed for a good result.
Join me again for Music Monday tomorrow, for now though take care.
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
