I’m watching way too much telly at the moment. It’s ridiculous – I’m turning into the biggest couch potato ever.
What with X Factor, I’m A Celebrity (over the last few weeks) & Corrie, it’s getting pretty difficult fitting in time to watch the scheduled dramas we ‘have to’ watch like Homeland let alone all the incidental brilliant TV dramas that pop up here there & everywhere.
We loved the series Monroe with James Nesbitt. He’s such a good, natural actor you almost forget you’re watching TV. Damian Lewis in Homeland is another brilliant actor although it’s got to be said that I spend a lot of time watching Homeland going ‘What did he say?’, ‘Who did they say did it?’, ‘I missed that bit then, can you rewind?’. Yup there’s a shed-load of mumbling in Homeland. Mr. C’s response to my moaning about the lack of clear diction was ‘Life’s like that!’
The Tyrone/Kirsty/Fizz story on Corrie is keeping us all gripped. Who’d have thought all those years ago when Fizz started on Corrie that she’d turn into such a cracking actress!
I am ridiculously addicted to the X Factor and think James Arthur is probably the best thing ever to come out of the programme. Yes I know Leona Lewis is brilliant and ‘world-class’ but James is completely unique and more my cup of tea. He really knows how to tell a story when he sings and I hear words in songs I’ve never really heard before, when he sings them. He interprets the lyrics so well and I’ve had that ‘hairs standing up on the back of my neck’ thing so many times when he sings! And Jahmene? Wow! What an incredible singer he is. Faultless everytime!
Roll on Saturday night that’s what I say…… ‘And the 2012 X Factor Winner is…….’
