Sorry, are we talking about Dr Who or the A-Team?

Hey, the A-Team still does exactly what it says on the tin. They break out murdoch, they defend some farmers from some filthy corporate bastard, build a tank and then they all have agood laugh at the end.

One nasty suprise for me upon getting cable was just how crap M*A*S*H the tv series was. Mawkish shite the lot of it...

Yeah, I saw the last 2 minutes yesterday, BA dangled Murdock from one of those electromagnet cranes you see in scrapyards, and then Let him down from a bit of a height. That bit at least never gets old.

I was chuffed to see it on Paramount, and i'm kind of enjoying it, but the canned laughter really grates. I don't know if they're rereunning the US version, but the one that was on BBC2(?) when i was wee was great without the laughter, it seemed like it had a bit more depth. Bloody yanks.

We've been getting the US DVD box-sets, and they give you the ability to turn the laughter track off.

Excellent value, too.

Canned laughter was invented by Satan...


Why they had it on the last Partridge I'll never know.
