There doesn't seem to be much to watch on TV at the moment.
We've just watched the first series of Madmen and Episodes and there isn't much left after that. Particularly as we now we have to watch the News from behind the settee.
You know that fundamental Law of Physics which states that the number of friends a person has is in inverse proportion to their number of different email accounts (I have 8 btw)? The same applies to Digital TV where "more" almost definitely means "less" , unless of course you are a big fan of that pinnacle of creative art "OMG! Peaches Geldof". I suppose at least it does what it says on the tin.
It's not just that talent gets spread thinner than Courteney Cox, I think it's the sheer volume and free availability that has made TV programmes generally less "valuable" in the eyes of the public. A bit like the demise of the music industry where most people under 25 don't regard it as something for which you part with money.
One of our "Annual TV Watches" was missed this year as it was moved from prime-time in response to criticism that it was a celebration of in-breeding. And I'm not talking "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" or "Antiques Roadshow" folks.
Yes, Crufts has now moved to More 4, which I always assumed was called "More Grand Designs" as it seems to be clever-Kevin doing wall-to-wall "I told them so" pieces to camera. And it's not just "Crufts" any more, its "DFS Crufts" in honour of its new sponsor from the World of Christmas Sofas. Many viewers must have missed it in the listing, assuming "DFS Crufts" was yet another Police Procedural featuring bluff, no-nonsense old fashioned Copper Jack Crufts and his gangly sidekick with an MA in Philosophy but "nowt oopstairs in't real world lad".
Anyway. Catching up with the winners at Crufts I was surprised to see the winner of the hound group was a dog called "Soletrader Peekaboo":
Yes, a PBGV has made it into the limelight, and obviously such a hit that the web site http://www.soletraderpbgvs.com/ has fallen over due to the volume of interest.
I hope these little charmers don't become a fashion statement because it is certain that a lot of them will be returned to kennels or simply run away due to their extraordinary combination of beautiful good looks and vacant brain cells. (Note to self- Try pitching "OMG Peaches Peekaboo" to More Dave Ja Vue Gold").
Anyway Lily is more attractive and has perfect owners.
