Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Grammar Fascist

I like this, but then I am very much a grammar pedant, if not an out and out grammar nazi. I was recently scarred for life by the cover of a recent issue of Radio Times (I mean, the ever-reliable Radio Times magazine, which is never wrong!) - the one with Prince Charles on the cover, which had a quote attributed to Prince Harry - "dont call me a geek". Sic, as they say. It pains me just typing it.

Like finding the remains of a cave man with a transistor radio.

I have this record.. It is, I'll freely admit, not the greatest record ever made - but then, it is essentially for children and not meant to be The Beatles, or even Black Lace. I'm not sure it deserves quite the pasting the website gives it. Although its educational value is severely hampered by its various errors (Sarah took one look at the cover and laughed at the number of dinosaurs that just don't belong together.

I'm sorely tempted to rip it to mp3 and then upload it for anyone who's interested. If you have kids who have an interest in dinosaurs, I suspect it will go down well. And it's a bit of pleasant, lighthearted fun.

Page Eight

Am rather disappointed to learn that this is just a one-off rather than a full series - can't help thinking it sounds like it could be a good series, possibly a decent replacement for Spooks. Mind you, that's based on knowing next to nothing about it except that it's a spy drama with Bill Nighy in it.

I presume it's not actually been on the BBC yet. Anyone know when it's scheduled to air?
