A-Bob's TV review

Posted 06-12-2004 at 18:33 by Acrylic-bob

A very disappointing evening in front of the box last night, apart from one exception. The BBC showed the last episode of their period drama "North and South" last night. I won't go as far as to say that it was worth the licence fee all by itself but, it came very close. Even a tired old cynic like me could not supress a tear at the superbly acted and beautifully filmed closing scenes. It's not often that the BBC gets it right these days but this was definately one of those occaisions.

What definately wasn't one of those occaisions was the programme which preceded it:" Hard Spell". Take a couple of hundred geeky kids with all the gawky awkwardness, volcanic zits, braces and horrendous specs usually associated with the species and get Eamon Holmes to ask them to spell really hard words. We used to do this sort of thing to fill the time on the last day of term. It was stupefyingly boring then, and the addition of TV glitz and glamour does nothing to raise it from the pit of banality I had hoped that it had been consigned to years ago.
