Better to burn out or fade away

So on a good note the return of the Big Bang Theory was fuckin awesome unlike the return of Peep Show which hit its peak two seasons ago and should have disappeared after the last episode of Season 4 when Mark and Sophie had their big wedding disaster which left Mark and Jeremy back living together. The way they have tried to stretch the show since has been poor and unimaginative and not in tone with the first four series. Of course their is still the occassional funny moment but their so few and far between I would rather be watching reruns of season 1-4.

When should the producers pull the plug on a show or are they just concerned with easy series stocking fillers for Xmas. I think strangely enough the one channel that bas managed their shows very cleverly is the BBC. Did you know their has been 81 episodes of Prison Break compared to 64 episodes of Only fools and Horses. The original and best The Office had two series consisting of 6 episodes and a two part Xmas Special one year, so 14 episodes in total. Its American not funny version is currently on episode 101.

Another example is the Royle Family, which I still watch anytime I see it on UK gold. It was a wonderful show about a working class family and easily my favourite ktchen sink drama. It had a total of 22 episodes, wheres for example Roseanne went on for eleven years where in season 2 it was the top rated show in america and by its last season was scraping into the top 50.

Ive no idea why the BBC are less guilty or draw the series to a conclusion alot sooner than its US counterparts and even Channel four to a lesser extent which has let Shameless and Peep Show go into a bit of a freefall. But I would like some answers on a postcard.

Back with a Bang a very Big Bang Theory actually!

So its been two months since I have blogged, basically the same amount of time I have been living in LandanNNN! It rocks BTW!

Im still on the hunt for a new contract which is getting increasingly frustrating but I think I should get something in the next few weeks hopefully.

Despite the lack of work, I have been really enjoying London. My mate has very kindly put me up for the last two months and its been awesome. Still havent really done much or seen much in London apart from the Irish bar across the street. Yes their is an Irish bar across the street from my flat, I could hit it with a coin from my bedroom window.

Its actually quite nice living in an area in England that is full of irish people, its like little Ireland. And its surprising that although some of the folk you meet in the bar havent been home in over 10 years that they still havent lost their accent.

Their was a trad band on a few weeks back and they played the national anthem and my mate didnt know what it was and continued playing pool with a friend of ours. It didnt go down too well, but I thought it was hilarious and my friend couldnt stop apologising to me. Of course somehow had to have a go at him about it. MUPPETS!

Few things I dont like about London

1. When the tube is horribly full and you get someones pit in your face.
2. The amount of degenerates who ask you for money around my area.
3. The way no one talks on the tube.
4. The plastic paddy brigade
5. New PaddysInEngland telling me different accounts of how bad things are back home.

The Big Bang Theory season 3 episode 1 aired in the states last night, cant wait to get home and get on piratebay AHOY!
