Rub your hands all over my body
"That doesn't even work. Mr B. Ody ? This is Bill Oddie. It's not a prank call. Why have you put it on there?"
"Well, we thought it looked like 'body'"
"What's rude about a body?"
"Lynn, could you call Bill Oddie..."
it's practically the same as his whole name.
due to depression right?
I've missed the passed few days, the last one I caught was Thursday nights with Packham's the Queen Is Dead reference when he was on about bee hives.
Oh Packham, what are you like.
I'm not sure about Chris Packham though. Does anyone else notice him twitching/shaking a little on screen? Especially when he's not talking. He looks like he might blow-up and have a diva fit at any moment.
Springwatch could be a good programme but it isn't. The presenters are horrendous. I want animals not human flirting and shit! Also more mammals and ease up on the birds.
Get Theo to add some internet glue and sticky it?
Actually, Humble seems ok, if a little excitable. Needs a better foil.
Pleat out in the field.
I said that I hated him on here when it was first announced that he'd be joining, and got shot down faster than a kestrel swooping for a baby lapwing.
I take it all back.
I think they should get Michella Strachan on.
Also, have you seen Packham's house? There's clearly good money in bird watching.
It seems that if you did Children's animal presenting you are made for life - Packham, Strachan, some other examples etc.
My Life As Animal.
Which has sadly come to the end of the current series.
It was one of the strangest hours of my entire life.
This furthers my point.
When I have kids they are being trained up to be children's animals presenters. A far more stable career than doctor, lawyer or accountant.
or is it all chicks in a nest?
It's been on all last week. I've a new found respect for Kestrels.
but to be honest, its one of the most boring, badly put together live programmes on the tv.
such as football, cricket, Springwatch, Masterchef, I practice my guitar while they're on so missing out on the commentary.
"can...we...go to the...badgers...? NO! we're back with the red kites"
Once you've got past the 'Oh, that's a nice shot of the reed warbler nest there' it becomes really sodding irritating.
The 'proper' nature programme that was on before it last night was much, much better.
A kestrel eating a lapwing chick that's been ringed the day before is much more exciting.
