1993 Biggest Hits & Saturday Night Television Disasters

I feel that Channel 5's biggest strength is their Countdown shows which are informative with some excellent talking heads and nostalgic memories.

These 2 shows were no exception and whilst I wasn't a big Music fan back in 93, I know most of the songs so I found the stories fascinating.

The TV Show disasters was another enjoyable watch, some of the reactions regarding 3-2-1 was priceless as was the reaction regarding The Price Is Right being too rowdy was great as well.

Decided too watch this when it came up on news feed and strength of reviews , wasnt expecting much even with the good reviews , but too say I was pleasantly surprised was a understatement, watch the first episode and the next thing I know 6 hours later I had watched the whole show.

Beautifully shot and directed ,magical and wonderful show that will bring a tear too your eye, the acting is top notch especially from the young lead who gives a amazing performance better than actors whom have been at it for years.Well worth a watch, roll on season two. Also has a great use of sound and sound track.

Now watching my favourite X-Files episode . The Post-Modern Prometheus.

1994 UK Biggest Hits

Another of Channel 5's Countdown shows, this time running down the Top 30 Singles in the UK 1994. Again very informative like All 4 One's absolute classic I Swear being Number 2 for 7 weeks (Unbelievable) as was Wet Wet Wet's Love Is All Around being Number 1 for 15 weeks (it's a good song but not a Number 1 for that long)

It was mid-way through 94 where I started getting into Music (Thanks to Let Loose Crazy For You) so it was memory lane for me.

I finished watching Game of Thrones for (at least) the third time and it's still exciting, funny, engaging, and surprising.

I then watched In My Skin, a brilliant coming-of-age story about Bethan, a 16-year-old girl in a Welsh comprehensive school, struggling with the demands of being a 'regular teenager' when her mum is in a psychiatric hospital and dad is an unreliable drug abuser. I hope there's another series.

After that, I looked at the other things on my iPlayer list and watched Industry, which is about new recruits to a team of city traders, and what they do when burning the candle at both ends and trying to succeed in a high-stakes business and surrounded by people who are equally as ambitious.

I then watched Time, an exceptional three-part miniseries in which Sean Bean plays an English teacher sentenced to spend four years in prison for killing someone when drunk driving. It's brilliantly written by Jimmy McGovern, superbly edited by the entire cast, particularly Sean Bean and Stephen Graham, and a tough and thought-provoking look at the many shortcomings of our criminal justice system. Highly recommended.

Saw the first episode of that Loki.. doubt if I'd watch the rest. Hiddleston was okay but life's too short ahem.
