You never do see well-hung statues, I wonder why

Maybe they don't want people swinging on it?

Hopefully.

Ian Hyland is brilliant. Loved reading his reviews, particularly one about Ultimate Force in the Sunday Mirror, where he took the mick out of Ross Kemp's (and I quote) 'don't take my baby away from me, Tiffany!' stare.

So that's one to avoid then? Unless one is a rabid Westlife fan, obviously.

Ian Hyland And Kevin O'Sullivan are must read tv critics for me every Sunday.

Although I much prefer Ian's reviews during his time at NOTW. I think because his critics were almost always to the point short and succint and far more acerbic & sarcastic whereas on Mail on Sunday LiveMag he writes them like an essay and therefore tends to lose it's bite & tends to be a little boring.

I miss NOTW tbh, do you? It had everything - serious journalism, sports, chavs, smuts, gossips, etc but most of all some great journalists too.

Maybe you should start a 'bring back NOTW' thread. See how long it lasts.

Lol

Actually I am surprised that this thread has lasted as long as it has.
Most unusual around here.

I'd start one but I wonder how long it would be before my
computer and phone would be hacked

^^^ The fact someone typed THAT acronym suggests to me that it already is (they have an alarm you know?)

Let's start again shall we... changa's thread seems to have disappeared.

I think he's hilarious. His scathing wit makes me swoon...

He's just tweeted that his thread got closed but he doesn't know why...

Any ideas?
Love him, so much better than Kevin Whatsisface...

I miss Dear Jane, the problem page, with photos of people in their underwear used to illustrate the poignant personal issues they were facing.
