    Re: Paul Darrow RIP

    Re: Mrs Browns Boys

    I cannot stand Mrs Browns' Boys and I find it hard to believe it's been voted the best comedy of the 21st Century so far. Can't think why as it's so pathetic.

    There used to be a small corner shop not 3 mins down the road by bike from my old house. It used to be the place where all the local characters used to come in for a chat and gossip with the kindly...

    Re: Water cuts/Power cuts

    As a young lad growing up in the 70's I used to feel excited when the power cuts happened. I loved to see my father light up some candles on the mantelpiece. Going outside to the street and seeing it...

    The one thing I've liked with everybody moving from VHS to DVD is so many people are selling their used tapes as blanks on Ebay. Years ago I bought a load of used Scotch tapes from Ebay to see if...
  12. Re: Weird Review Of The Year - BBC2 90's Short Docu

    If it was back in 1994 it must have been shown during the 1st season of the X-Files. I was hoping at the time that the Fortean Review Of The Year documentary was going to be a regular occurrence over...

    Re: Go Bots vs Transformers

    I didn't mind the Gobots cartoon at all although Transformers was superior in every way. The same with the toy range. Tonka who made the Gobots toys made a bold statement that they would probably win...

    Tried Quatro once and wasn't that keen on the taste. I don't think it was sold in many places around my area. It was cheaper and easier to buy the Panda Pops bottle drinks from the local corner shop....
