Nothing happy about it. You're lucky you avoided Hogmanay TV. Jonathan Watson has been getting worse year on year to the extent that it's now embarrassingly bad. If we thought Jackie Bird was bad, the new BBC effort was fifty times worse than that. Someone should tell them that fireworks don't work on TV. The first EIGHT MINUTES of the new year and decade was broadcasting the Edinburgh tourist trap pyrotechnics and the boy Des just isn't right. They got Travis to play their old "hits" and boy were they shite. There's a reason they've faded to obscurity and they should be left there. That lead singer boy isn't reet in da heid. The patter and the banter between Scottish actors was cringe.

Purely as an academic exercise of course, we were flicking between BBC and STV. Sean Batty was just as bad, the two worst productions in the history of Scottish broadcasting. Whoever thought going to some shit castle owned by some weirdo couple with their unfortunate kids and their vacant friends was a good idea was terribly misguided. The "music" on that show was just as cringe. The only decent Scottish artist on show was on Jools' Hootenanny. Eddi Reader did the first song after the bells and an excellent version of La Vie en Rose half an hour after that. What is it about Scottish homegrown TV productions? You couldn't make it any worse. Bah humbug.

Another 12 months until it’s a new decade.

Is that correct? I thought that we're now in the swinging 20s?

There was no Year 0. The first decade was 1-10 then 11-20 and so on.

I think I heard that ten years ago. We should really petition to change that shit.

Happy New Year to you all.

Still watching TV, rocket min?

Give it up as a new year resolution, you know it makes sense.

The 70's were 1970 to 1979. The 80's, 90's etc. Year zero was the start of the new century when Y2K would've wrecked the economy but for all the clever IT guys who saved us all. At a cost of a few billion.

I don't watch much on TV. Football is most of my screen time. Followed by news as I like to keep an eye on how the corrupt media shape the sheeple's minds. I should read newspapers too in this aim but that's not feasible.

I missed the first 8 minutes of OAE but I thoroughly enjoyed it. As did the Mrs. We were all agreed that it had improved! I especially enjoyed the VR arrests and the Klopp impression tickled me.
