Looking Backwards and Forwards

There is a new TV series coming out by, and starring Seth MacFarlane, the genius behind Family Guy, Ted and American Dad! It is called The Orville and is about a Star Trek kind of comedy.

And then there is the Fry & Laurie Reunited clip.

Stephen Fry - National Treasure
Hugh Laurie - Dr Gregory House

Going further back, I present to you, Mr Rogers: The Discussion and yes, it did speak to me!

Blackadder the Fifth? Me likey!

According to the British tabloid newspaper, The Mirror, the star of the Blackadder series, Rowan Atkinson, has hinted that season 5 might be in the offing.

The amazingness that was Blackadder combined humour with history and real emotion. The final minutes of the final episode of season four still brings tears to the eyes of grown men (allegedly...)

Recognisable faces in the cast picture include Stephen Fry of QI and everything clever, Tony Robinson from Time Team and of course that nice young chap Hugh Laurie from that medical show you might have heard of, now what's it called? Home? Building? No, I remember - House...

So a rather large 'huzzah' for bringing back the Blackadder series!!

You are observant

You are observant. Yes you are.

I mentioned that the short film in my bloggage of yesterday, Jam, had two of my fave people on it and then went on to laud the amazingness that is Stephen Fry.

And the other fave person? That must have been Mr. Philip Schofield.

So who is he and why do I like him? Well, as always, I'll answer the second part first.

Not only does he answer my DMs on twitter, but he also sends out interesting Tweets. That's why I like him today. In the last 20 odd years he has been a TV presenter in the UK and has always come across as a 'good egg'. The same way that Stephen Fry appears but without the 'I know more than you so sit back and learn'.

Basically he comes across as a nice guy and I respect that.

What a Twitter! Phillip Schofield is more interested in tweeting than eating

And then there was Gordon the Gopher. If you don't know what I'm talking about then watch the video below or ask Mr. Google if he can help.

From his current TV show's website:

Phillip Schofield joined This Morning in September 2002 and currently presents the show four days a week.

By the age of ten, he had already decided he would like to pursue a career in broadcasting and began to write to the BBC. He was finally offered a job in September 1979 at Broadcasting House, London, working for radio outside broadcasts as a booking clerk.

Aged 19, Phillip left the BBC to emigrate to New Zealand with his family. He quickly landed a job presenting on Radio Hauraki in Auckland and went on to appear on television. Three-and-a-half years later, he decided that it was time to return to Britain.

Within four months of returning to the UK, the BBC presentation department offered him the job of fronting Children’s BBC from the Broom Cupboard.

Phillip accepted and stayed with presentation for two years. He then went on to present five series of the popular Saturday morning show Going Live, four series of Take Two, three series of his own quiz show, The Movie Game, two series of the highly acclaimed travel show Schofield's Europe and a series of Television's Greatest Hits.

In 1993 he signed a two-year contract with ITV and starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at the London Palladium.

Phillip then took the show around the UK and Ireland from December 1993 until February 1995. In December 1995 he took up the Dreamcoat again at the Oxford Apollo Theatre and in February 1996 moved to the Hammersmith Labbatts Theatre through to the middle of 1996.

In 1996 he also signed an exclusive contract with Carlton Television and presented a number of shows including Schofield’s Adventures in Hawaii (a one-hour special), Schofield’s Quest, two series of Tenball and two Christmas specials: Schofield’s Gold and Six Little Angels.

Autumn 1996 saw Phillip presenting two series, One In A Million and Schofield's TV Gold, followed by a one-off Christmas special, Now We’re Talking. In autumn 1997 Talking Telephone Numbers returned for its fifth series and a further series of One In A Million ran through to July 1997.

Kidneys, livers and hearts I understand, but fat?

Its safe for me to return to Peru now.

The land of Paddington Bear and the location for Stephen Fry's (praise be The Tweet) amazing books and documentaries;

'Paddington Bear: The Early Years'
'Stephen Fry and the Spectacled Bears'
'Rescuing the Spectacled Bear: A Peruvian Diary'

My sister, who we all now know is not obese or even 'puffy' would have been safe in Peru even though it has come to light, with the arrest of 3 local Peruvians, that over 60 people were murdered.

And why were so many innocent lives taken? Organ sellers? Blood collectors? To get their money or valuables?


To sell their fat on the blackmarket for cosmetic use in Europe.


This is some scary stuff. And more reason than ever for me to get on with this exercise and diet regime.
