    Hello,

    An emergency thread for all the schedule changes caused by the virus and the lockdown

    A place for what are you watching? and have you seen anything interesting added to the schedules? with a bit of chat

    Nothing too heavy, a bit like the Christmas TV thread.




    Extras double bill on BBC1 now, followed by Old School.

    Aaah, that's nice

    Apparently this would have been an international break weekend, so in a way there is more MOTD this weekend than there would have been.

    Nice to see the BBC are using some classic clips from shows like Alan Partridge and The Thick Of It between shows, to tell people to stay at home.

    Oooh, if anyone hasn't watched The Thick Of It, get right on it.

    Only watched it recently, best thing I've seen in years.

    Malcolm Tucker is the greatest anti hero since Darth Bleedin Vader.

    With the mentioning of Alan Partridge above, I remember he had a photo of Michael Schumacher driving a Benetton in his mobile home :cool:

    Just the usual Supernatural, NCIS, Better Call Saul. Don't have much of an appetite for Netflix binges. So many shows.

    Peter Beardsley's wife is the funniest character in the world today.

    BBC1 has some old favourites lined up for Saturdays, starting on April 4th with


    8.15pm Gavin and Stacey (Series 1 Ep 1)
    8.45pm Outnumbered (Series 4 Ep 1)


    https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/a31911977/gavin-and-stacey-return-bbc-coronavirus/


    They will also be showing Peter Kay's Car Share at some point, and "The BBC will also deliver a range of virtual events to replace some of those that have now had to be cancelled. We can all still have a Eurovision moment, even if it is different from the past"


    Dunno what that is, maybe they will show old Eurovision winners in a big evening and ask the viewers to vote on them.

    It would be great to show it weeknights back to back over a few weeks, stick it on RTE2 at 10pm.

    The 1985 film Cocoon is on Film4 on Sunday at 4.25pm

    Hopefully it has some useful information for our elderly relatives and neighbours at this difficult time. Let's have a look ...


    "The elderly residents of a retirement home treat themselves to an occasional dip in the pool at an abandoned house. It turns out that friendly aliens in human form are using the place to restore dormant members of their species - and energy from their cocoons is giving the old-timers a new lease of life."

    :eek::pac:

    I think I'm getting a bit fed up watching telly. Even though I've watched flip all today. Bit of news, bit of Jurassic World.

    Bit more news.

    That's it.

    Think I spent more time outside with the dogs (inside 2km!) than I did watching telly today.

    Just feels like I've watched way too much of it lately.

    Anybody else finding themselves strangely addicted to a TV series called ‘Botched’? :o

    One episode caught my eye (ahem), as it had an Irish woman called Ava Van Rose who claimed to be ‘Ireland’s Top Model’ :confused::confused:

    No, me neither. :D
