What's on telly tonight, luv?

Just as I was thinking, "there's not a lot on telly worth watching
these days", along come two really fantastic programmes, which are
both on tonight...featuring the fabulous Sandrine Voilett, all about
her "love affair" with Paris, and the gorgeous Joanna Lumley in a
rather sad comedy (if comedy can be sad), called "Sensitive Skin"...
but then isn't life sad and funny at the same time? :)
Both programmes had a favourable review in last Sunday's Observer.

The truly awful but very watchable programme with the domineering
dietician and doyenne of dung, Gillian McKeith (formerly known as Dr.
Gillian McKeith), is back on our screens again. This series is called
"3 Fat Brides, 1 Thin Dress", where three women struggle to fit inside
their wedding dresses, and embark on Gillian's diet and fitness plan,
with view to looking good on their wedding day (and winning a thinner
person's wedding dress). Mrs C and I are disciples of Ms McKeith,
eating more or less her dietary regime already.... we've got two of
her books, as we're so keen on her food ... all except quinoa
porridge, which we thought was revolting.
Thank God we're not watching smellyvision, as just the sight of Ms
McKeith opening plastic tubs of poo was revolting in itself.

But then, to be honest, we prefer Ian Marber's dietary ideas, in the
"Food Doctor Diet". If any of you wish to lose some weight and wish to
eat more healthily, I'd recommend you get hold of one of his books.

And then there's a treat for Film 4 viewers tonight ... Francois
Ozon's "5x2", which according to the blurb is all about a couple's
relationship, and how it deteriorates from pre-marital bliss to a
very bitter divorce... but shown in reverse order. Sounds like a lot
of fun. :)

Gee thanks, Justin, for telling me about the TV shows I can't watch! Saw the first of the Paris shows before we left and wished I could see the rest.

RW: thanks for dropping in ... It's a shame that we can't all share the good quality TV that's on ... unless I suppose it's being shown on Sky TV. That is one thing I miss when we travel abroad ... we're often restricted to watching the CNN News channel (which tends to repeat all its news every hour), or an occasional film dubbed in a foreign language. But then going on holiday is often the best time for me to read some good books instead ... no TV and no computer.

... plastic containers with POO inside them ... GM likes to look at poo to diagnose what people are eating /how good their diet is. Healthy poo means a healthy you.

I'll spare you the details of what my poo looks like, Angel, but I think I'd get quite a high score in the poo ratings.
