The Prince Of Post-Pub

A pioneer of UK late night television The Word is twenty years old. From the sublime (Television debut of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’) to the ridiculous (Snoop Dog vs Rod Hull and Emu) to the down-right disgusting (The Hopefuls) it was always memorable. (Much NSFWness)

The 5 most bizarre Ninja Turtle rip-offs of the ’90s

What is says on the tin… some of the commentary strays very close to un-PC unacceptability, but is pretty damn hilarious and bang on the nail. I do remember several of these making it over to the UK at the time – though I forgot just how many as they all seemed to blur into one – and just how rubbish they were.

Band Of Brothers

Band Of Brothers

I remember watching Band of Brothers on the television a while back and not really getting it. In fact I gave up half way through the series. However recently I was compelled to go back to it (not least by playing the PC game Call of Duty). This time around I did get it. Before I think I was trying to concentrate on following every single character at all times. Which is just impossible. You only really need to keep track of a few major characters throughout the whole thing and the one minor character who will step up to take the lead for that episode. The story is really the story of a unit – a group of men – rather than one single man. Men die, or are injured out of the unit, coming back when they have recovered or are replaced by others but the unit goes on. The series is at its heart about how a group of disparate people bond during times of war and become ‘a band of brothers’.
