Not as random as it might at first seem. I loved the US cop show CHIPS when I was a girl.
Why then the mention of CHIPS all these years later then? I hear you ask.
Once again, not as random as it might at first seem. Kelly's mention of CHIPS - OK so it isn't exactly that CHIPS but the newer version - here in her One-Sentence Movie Reviews got me thinking of one of my first school girl crushes.
Actually not a post about Eric Estrada (or indeed CHIPS for that matter), rather Kelly's post got me thinking that MR T and I hadn't posted any movie reviews for some time.
The reason? A long story which I won't bore you with but in a nut shell ....
- With my being in hospital/Mr T's Ordination we haven't exactly had a lot of weekends/spare time in general in which to watch DVDs.
- We cancelled our subscription to LoveFilm in favour of AmazonPrime where ...
- We've both been thoroughly enjoying Vikings (we're up to Series four, part one) with, not just its pillaging and sex scenes (of which there are thankfully very few of the latter) but its, who'd have thought it, insights into religious intolerance, feminism and disability.
- Mr T has been watching Preacher. A bit too bizarre for my tastes and not something I'd put my money on him enjoying but, hey-ho, Series 1 was watched in next to no time.
- Last Sunday afternoon, Mr T took leave of his latest essay, in favour of us watching The BFG. Unlike himself, surprisingly not a book I'd actually read. The film was delightful (and I'm informed very true to the book), the animated characters not so human looking as to creep me out in the way that those who are too human to be animated whilst too animated to be quite human do (think The Polar Express) ... Oh, come on, please tell me its not just me ... And, oh my goodness, those Frobscottle guzzling corgis.
