random tv stuff

Neighbours sees a re-vamp today, one that hit Aussie screens back in July, but a change to the theme tune and credits – goodbye Brushscript logo, 22 years is a long time in font years. Just thought I’d mention it as no-one else seems to be.

Also there’s the second part of ‘Eye of The Gorgon’, part of the initially-dissapointing-but-picked-up-no-end-since-casting-Phyllida-Law ‘Sarah Jane Adventures’ to look forward to at 5 o’clock.

Over the weekend we discovered another hilarious 5pm CBBC programme (we caught it on repeat), Chute is a mix of completely random archive clips, ‘rathergood’ style animations and totally bizarre humour linked by what is a very rare comodity these days, a CBBC presenter with a personality. The quality is sometimes variable, but it is heartening to see something that almost harks back to the broom cupboard days of children’s broadcasting.

I am aware that many people reading this blog will be completely lost at this point, or be off somewhere else by now. I could be helpful and link to lots of plces to help them make sense of this, but it wouldn’t help much, and I really can’t be bothered.
