Love Island 2017

<Sigh> In 1967, Star Trek became the first series in which the word “hell” was uttered. Now we know there are very few obsessives who enjoy that series, but just in case, and for completion, it comes when Captain Kirk says, “Let’s get the hell out of here” at the conclusion of the ‘City on the Edge of Forever’ episode. But it wasn’t until 1999, when the word “shit” was first used in a U.S. network series. Progress used to be slow kids. A decade ago, copulation on television was still frowned upon. When a lady appeared on Big Brother both naked and worse for wear, it was on the front page of every paper the next day (maybe not... Continue reading...

Eurovision 2017

A Beautiful Mess Life is a U shaped curve. Things start off well, decline to a point just above no return, and then spring back into fashion to restart the cycle. nike air max 1 pas cher And so to with Eurovision. Taken super seriously in the days when Abba used to win it, the singing contest became a bit of a joke in the 90s and early part of the 21st Century, as we were all post history, free to have a laugh and a joke at Serbia’s expense. After all, we prevented you from causing genocide. Hahahaha. nike tn requin pas cher Terry Wogan. Asics Pas Cher But Eurovision has suddenly become a serious business, as Europe once...

Britain’s Got Talent 2017

‘Oh No It Hasn’t’ Early days in this annual celebration of British television’s executives’ talent at exploiting the mentally unstable. nike air max 2017 dames wit But already the betting markets are lining up their numbers, and the second favourite, Sarah Ikumu is where we think the value could lie. nike air max 2017 goedkoop Only 16, Ikumu won the first golden buzzer of the series (from the High Priest Cowell no less), with her rendition of ‘And I am Telling You’. Zapatillas Air Max Nike In all the hullaballoo, Simon even forgot what show he was on, telling the student, “You made it your song.” Of course, were Ikumu to progress in this contest and go on to release...

Strictly Come Dancing 2016

The Real Reason we all pay our License Fee Bloody Bake Off. We quite frankly hate everything about it, from the irritating innuendo-filled presenting Woolrich Uomo style, to the fact that given it is all pre-recorded, you can’t have a bet on it. Go to Channel 4 you fiends. Even better – go to Sky One and never darken our door again. Strictly on the other hand. Good old Brucie. They’ve what!! Ah but they will never take Len Goodman alive. I see! Well at least we can bet on it. Having survived the launch episodes (the Charity Shield of Strictly if you please) and done the usual tabloid publicity with speculation as to whose marriage may be the first... Continue reading...

2016 Strictly Come Dancing Update

Ed Balls If there is one thing the British public never tire of being repeated, its repetition. Nike Heren fjallraven kanken mini (enfants) 7 L Year after year we witness similar storylines on Strictly, and the British public lap it up. fjällräven kånken classic This year in what will always be known as the Widdecombe role, is Ed Balls, who continues to survive and thrive in the show, although almost certainly will politely bow out / find a by-election, before he becomes a true contender. Adidas ZX 750 Heren In the meantime, the Beeb will lap up the free press coverage, and of course, the extra highbrow viewers that Balls bring. Fjallraven Kanken Classic Not to mention the bookmakers of... Continue reading...

X Factor 2016 Update

Fright Night Matt Terry is unquestionably the obvious winner, although with two months still to go, odds-on prices cannot be recommended. Nike Air Max 2017 Kopen As we have already seen, the show’s producers take tabloid stories very seriously… The consequence of Terry going in to 8/13 (odds courtesy of Paddy Power) is that the second favourites 5 After Midnight have drifted out to 4/1, particularly significant in light of Cowell’s vituperative words on Saturday night. nike pas cher What is important to note is how low the standard has fallen in recent years. There is no Leona Lewis left waiting to be discovered. nike chaussures Someone would have had to have spent the last few years in an Austrian... Continue reading...

Eurovision Final 2016

RIP Terry Like reading about globalisation, and the British Army’s failure to hold Basra, there are times when the UK’s limited power whacks you over the head. Things ain’t what they used to be kids. We no longer stroll into foreign countries pillaging their raw materials and their even rawer women. We no longer have a lead in our people’s intellect or talent. And of course, we no longer have a chance in Eurovision. Time was when the annual contest would be a good old healthy battle between the United Kingdom, France and Abba, where the Germans were there to make us laugh, and the Russians to provide panto villains. Nowadays, it is a shock if a country from outside... Continue reading...

Eurovision 2016 Semi Final No 2

On BBC4, natch Once the preserve of arty documentaries about fancy foreign guff, the demise of BBC3 (we’ve just noticed too,) has left a big ‘unfancy foreign guff’ shaped hole for the Big Suits at Television Centre to fill. Hence it is with trepidation that we head to Ch116, and having watched the first semi to get with the form (Greece and Iceland the major shock casualties), we cast our eye over the rest of the pack, in what could be our final ever Eurovision!! Ukraine are hotly fancied to do some damage in the contest once more, and they are rightly favourites to win this semi. And if Russia are trying to drag Ukraine out of Europe, I would...

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Down Down Deeper and Down What could be crasser than a professional dancer/cuckolder announcing live on television that she is expecting her new partner’s baby, knowing all too well that his ex-wife would be watching, unaware of this momentous news? Ah – how about telling someone their ex-husband has died live on screen? Will that do it for you? To say this season’s Winter CBB has plumbed the depths, is an understatement along the lines of saying Leicester have done ok this season. Long gone are the fun old days of Vanessa Feltz having a mental breakdown, or George Galloway wrecking his political career. What would not so long ago have been viewed as entirely taboo, is now pumped out... Continue reading...

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2015

Dm dm dm dm dm The catchy theme tune, the obscure faded sports star, and the tabloids getting rather pervy with the concept of attractive women showering; it can only mean one thing – Jungle is back. The line-up is a typically eclectic mix. Totty from reality shows (Vicky Pattison and Ferne McAnn) and totty from future reality shows (Jorgie Porter.) Reality male totty (Spencer Matthews and George Shelley.) An out there homosexual (Brian Friedman.) Sports star (Kieron Dyer.) Lunatics (Chris Eubank and Lady Colin Campbell.) Washed-up television stars (Yvette Fielding and Susannah without Trinny). And finally the ‘I didn’t think he needed the money’ (Duncan Bannatyne.) We are nothing but sports gurus here at Oggs, so lets get the... Continue reading...
