Would have loved to be there for the Kooyong gig but I was only just born.

Anything from the 70's they did was awesome .Black and Blue included.

WHEN we win the flag in a coupla years we will have to play Sympathy a few times over for the after party.

yes. Between '68-'74 The Stones were right on top of it. And i agree about Black & Blue album which was used to find a new guitarist.

Some Girls is also a beauty.

It's why even today they pull a crowd even though Keith can hardly play anymore because of arthritis in his hands (claws)!!

I was at both the Kooyong and Randwick Racecourse concerts in support of the release of Exile on Main Street... at Randwick, they arrived at the stage in a big white horse drawn carriage, which was pretty funny; but despite the quality of those concerts, as far as best rock act/performance I've ever seen, they were outclassed (in my opinion) by The Clash at Sydney's Capitol Theatre during their Magnificent Seven tour.

Well here's a new show for all true 'Demons' ! A supernatural drama set in a grand building in NYC .

Terry O'Quinn from the show 'Lost' stars ... here's the IMDb link ... 666 Park Avenue

But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay... could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

I watched a couple of eps of "Yes Minister" last night.

Anyone who has not seen it. I strongly urge you to do so.

It was made in the 80's but the script & acting is as sharp and clever today as it was then.

Nothing in Politics changes very much.

YM is brilliant.

Get your hands on "The Thick of It", in the mold of YM, but a bit of acerbic. Look out of the Director of Comms Malcolm Tucker, a force to be reckoned with!

Its know YM, but pretty good all the same.

Brand new action drama from the UK called 'Hunted' . Stars Australia's own Melissa George . A little along the lines of the 'Bourne' concept and 'Nikita' . Here's the IMDb link ... Hunted

This is the story of a spy with a bull's-eye on her back, a human target unable to trust anyone at any time, even the man she loves. She is, quite literally, running for her life. Hunted is a smart, complex and contemporary spy series.

Just recently watched "my transsexual summer" with my girlfriend. I know you're probably like wtf but it's actually a really interesting show about 7 people in England who are transgender. A real eye-opener to how they serious think they were born the wrong sex, and how they deal with life. 1 of the guys who was born a woman looks seriously like a man, with the build and facial hair and all, while others just look like bad trannys with wigs ha.

There's SFA on at the moment.

I'm heartened by the fact that Arrested Development (not the rap group) will be back on our screens come May this year, one of the most underratted TV shows of last decade.

Tobias: Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over: an analyst and a therapist, the world’s first “analrapist.”

Priceless. Is the movie still due this year?

Haha. Tobias has got some of the best lines going on the show.

I read somewhere all 13 episodes will be released all at once an 'netflix', I'm not really across the techo side of things but I think they're a US online TV network. Can't get it here, so ill be looking out for avenues to obtain it, if you're keen I can give you a shout out when i find any info out.

But back to the original point, 13 episodes come out in may and then they're might be a movie after that, tying up all stories within the show. Good times ahead.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the new series. I'll take that over a movie anyday.

I was reading somewhere that the movie has yet to be confirmed and is still unlikely (particularly if they're tying up the story lines in the new series)

If I track down the series before you I'll let you know.

Just watched the first 2 episodes of The Walking Dead. Wow this show is graphic... need to get the whole first season in while the gf is away for the week.

I was a bit skeptical when I started watching the Walking Dead, but it didn't take long to get engrossed in the series.

3 seasons of gory goodness.

Came across what looks to be a decent new 'docudrama' series from the States.

'The Men Who Built America' starts tomorrow night (Monday) at 8.30pm on the 'History' channel.

Miniseries shines a spotlight on the influential builders, dreamers and believers whose feats transformed the United States, a nation decaying from the inside after the Civil War, into the greatest economic and technological superpower the world had ever seen. The Men Who Built America is the story of a nation at the crossroads and of the people who catapulted it to prosperity.

One to keep an eye out for ... 'The Americans.' ... heard some good reports about this brand new drama from the States.

Centers on Russian 'sleepers' operating in the United States in the 1980s. Set during the Cold War when relations between the Big Two are still ebbing and flowing, we are taken on an intriguing ride on the back of an American couple: Phillip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell). It is an engrossing story, interspersed with great moments of tension, decadence, and charm

Fully 50% of why the show worked was the music. Whoever we should praise found more good music from the 80's than I remembered there being, and its presence in the show enhances the story. Great mind candy for the thinking person, with something to come back to after the first viewing. I credit the success of The Americans to 3 things: Great script, great music, and Matthew Rhys.

Have a new born so not watching a lot of TV at the moment, only show I'm really watching is Law & Order SVU, pretty rock solid show, rarely puts in a bad episode.

Late last year was watching A Moody Christmas on ABC, only 6 episodes, but was very good and good for a laugh, worth watching. I'm also hoping that ABC do a second season of Mad as Hell with Shaun Micallef, with it being an election year they'd be mad not to. Never misses an opportunity to take a stab at Tony Abbott does Mr Micallef, throws some good ones out there about Julia also in order to keep it all balances. hehe.

Other good shows worth a look are my personal favourite The Shield, seven seasons and probably the best cop show you're likely to see. The Big C (Lauara Linney and Oliver Platt) is a good drama also, seen the first two seasons of that now so will hopefully get a hold of season 3 shortly.

If you're after something more light hearted The Office always puts a smile on my face, coming up to their final season now I believe which will be season 9. Go Girls is a pretty good comedy/drama out of New Zealand which I got into when I was over there on my honeymoon. Also just watched season 1 of Parks & Recreation and that's pretty good also. The UK comedies Black Books and The Inbetweeners are hilarious! Inbetweeners is wrong, but if you're male and have gone through highschool is pretty much a running commentary on it IMO.

Otherwise if you want some real classics, you can't go past The Simpsons, seasons 1-13 (all the seasons after 13 suck), Seinfeld and The old Micallef Program (ABC).

Not sure if anyone has stumbled across "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" yet but it's a must view. I only came across it a couple of days ago and have watched ep4 (Alec Baldwin) and ep9 (Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks). The show stars Jerry Seinfeld and he brings along a "Classic car" for each show.


Wonderful comedy ,,, the humour is very quick and slick so it's easily revisited. 10 episodes in the 1st series and each episode goes for between 10 and 20 minutes. Youtube has all of the episodes up. (I believe)

Here's the Alec Baldwin bit ... Larry David, Whoopie Goldberg, Michael Richards and Ricky Gervais also feature in the other shows ...

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
