Teh internets are a wonderful thing. One thing that I’ve been doing, with all of the tubes, is downloading obsolete TV programmes that can’t even be obtained by legal means. What normally happens is that you watch them and realise that your memories have been enhanced with a heavy rose tint and that they’re nowhere near as good as you remembered.
I’ve just been watching Tucker’s Luck which, when I was 13, was the best programme ever. At the time I thought Tucker was my ultimate hero. Now I’m in my late 30s, I’ve discovered that it really was that brilliant and Tucker really was that cool! In fact I’m tempted to put up a picture of him by my desk at my new job which starts tomorrow…on second thoughts, maybe that isn’t such a good idea.
