Episode 16: We didn’t put baby in a corner
On this podcast we have another wild track. Yes that’s what us folks in the business call noise that shouldn’t really be there but because we have no access to a studio we call it a wild track. On the last episode it was buzzy bees, crazy cats and city sirens this time it’s the Nippers. That’s 1.0, 2.0 & 3.0. The elder two are relatively quiet as they are being sat by the telly in the other room but Nipper 3.0 is taking right after her mammy and never shuts up. Some of you will hate it and some of you will think it’s cuteness overload. But eventually, like me, you’ll get used to it and be able to ignore…
Without further ado we kick off with some TV news, trivia – look even we have forgotten what direction this segment is supposed to have.
02m15s Hung Season 2 started on 3e on Friday 3rd September. Of course I forgot to watch/ record it. I was out! I! Out! Amazeballs!
2m24s Rosemary tells us something shockin’ about Thomas Jane, lead actor in Hung: he frequently, nay always, shows up to red carpet events barefoot. Except this time.
04m23s Boardwalk Empire kicks off in the US on September 18th. (I read about it first from Stephen O’Leary on Twitter)
6m41s I have a possibly controversial theory as to why a series set in prohibition era America would be made
08m43s I eventually get around to saying what bugs me
09m26s We marvel again at the anachronistic practices of the television industry
10m35s Rosemary is up to date with Fringe. As she says herself she started watching for Peter and stayed for Walter
10m49s I recently watched the first ever episode of Fringe (which I hadn’t seen) en francais while in France
12m00s RTÉ & TG4 announced their autumn schedules but failed to tell us anything about them so we give them only a cursory mention here. Hint Hint. Yes press offices I wasn’t joking when I emailed you and asked you to include me in your press releases.
12m14s Rosemary is especially delighted to hear that Brendan O’Connor won the saturday night chat slot
13m24s We move on to the sponge cake that has been sitting in front of us for the previous 20mins. Aren’t we terribly restrained! We discuss the Great British Bake-Off which I am LOVING!
14m25s I start off with the one thing that befuddled me about this programme: how did they choose the 10 contestants?
18m32s After a mammoth digression into how NOT to make a sponge (which included me slagging of my mammy’s sponge – sorry Mum!) we return to discussing TV
20m28s Rosemary admits that I do all the work
20m32s Rosemary asks me if I’ve seen Beat the Chef. No, no RTÉ have not started a late night S&M series. It’s actually called Take on the Takeaway
21m20s We talk about Neven Maguire. I like his show but I just can’t warm to him.
22m50s Rosemary watched Amish: The World’s Squarest Teenagers
24m27s I think it would be nice to be like the Amish and have a husband to tell you what to do, divest yourself of responsibility
24m39s Kinda like, as I say, the women in Mad Men which both Rosemary and I have been watching, me series 1 and her series 4
25m55s Mad Men S2 Spoiler alert
29m47s We talk iPhone apps that will improve your telly viewing experience, kicking off with GetGlue
31m13s Rosemary wanders off the topic of TV and onto wine saying she’d love an app that would help her choose wine.
32m34s I LOVE the IMDB (Internet Movie Database) app but it has made me realise that there are only 10 actors in the States. Seriously, time for some fresh blood, dudes. Also the actor I do talk about is Lance Reddick not Lance Henricksen. Oh dear, I’m just too good at this…
34m13s We have to wrap up but we haven’t talked about 30 Rock
35m05s Folks we are looking for guests who can actually talk rather than coo cutely. Leave a comment below, mark it “not for publication” and I’ll get back to you.
