but then again I have a fascination with all things 1980s.
....especially fascinated by the politics of the 80s probably because I've been brought up in a battle for the centre ground
And most of the second one. Didn't watch it tonight.
I like the subject matter, but I kinda can't get past liking and disliking him at the same time. I know it's supposed to be a personal story, but just when he's getting into something that should hold your attention, I find myself wishing he'd stop remniscing about how ccringingly naive and daft he was.
It just made me feel like I was The_Incapacitant. :(
Nice easy pace and I liked the personal take on the subject matter and he was very good at poking fun at himself.
Greatest PM this country never had
this one had too much about the beginning of his career, which I didn't really care about
Even if he is red scum (I mean Arsenal, btw).
I'm fascinated by the subject but his dull pasty face and boring personal history just reminds me of rainy Sunday evenings, Jonathan Creek and school the next day.
just made me feel warmly nostalgic.
to overthrow 'the man' using lateral thinking and magic.
nice to have a personal history, and he was pretty honest with a lot of it, saying how he'd be casually racist and annoy the pakistani shopkeeper, had admiration for Thatcher until she got to power as his Dad was a Tory and how when lesbianism ran amok at his uni he was mainly concerned about not getting laid. 80's miners strike/Thatcher docs have been done to death so this works pretty well.
