Homeland Season 3 – Teaser Release…

29 Jul

Homeland is back in September and I believe Channel 4 will be showing season 3.

For all Homeland fans out there here is a teaser released for the next season. Very cryptics so make of it what you will.

The Royal Baby Boy [The Prince of Cambridge]…So much news about so little news (Part II)

23 Jul

Yesterday was just like an appetizer for today. Today the news networks and BBC went over and above the call of duty in their attempt to report on every little facet of information about the new Royal Baby…HRH Prince No Name.

And when there was nothing to report we were treated to lingering shots of hospital doorways where people of import may or may not be entering or exiting.

Occasional they did hit jackpot when they grabbed an interview with either one of the royals (major or minor) or  the Middletons.

On the Middletons, I am sure the they would have been ecstatic about a grand daughter whatever the circumstance but when they were being interviewed today I couldn’t help but think this scene from Eddie Murphy’s  ”Coming from America” must be running around in their heads.

He got his own money and, baby, when I tell you he’s got his own money, I mean the boy has gotten his own money!

A prince. He’s a prince!Oh, Lisa, you did it this time. You hit the jackpot. Your little goat herder makes Darryl look like a welfare case!

The Royal Baby Boy [The Prince of Cambridge]…So much news about so little news.

22 Jul

The British People have a new future king as Prince William and Kathrine have they first baby boy…and that is essentially the news tonight. So why has the BBC spun in out into a never ending rolling news special so far clocking up 2 hours with no interruptions.

They are telling us over and over either things we already know, have no interest in knowing or simply don’t want to know.

All sorts of  special guests, experts, royal commentators are being rolled in front of the camera largely telling us the same thing in different ways and invariably it is an opportunity to replay endless clips from the archive about Princess Diana.

Congratulations to William and Catherine. To the media it has only been 2 hours and we are already drowning in the media saturation.

Sometime one picture says it all. The moment of pure, raw and unadulterated joy!

Congrats to Andy Murray, it was well deserved.

 

Quick note to Alex Salmond, dude there is a time and a place. Andy Murray’s victory ending 77 years of waiting I suggest is not the place for a political point winning. Even if it is slightly amusing how David Cameron is totally unaware of what your getting up to. It is like the political equivalent of “Bunny Ears”
