RTE is still shit

I figured I would have a look on RTE’s website to see what I’m getting for my money.

Irish Film & Television Awards nominee Kathryn Thomas has denied there is a rivalry between herself and TV3’s Lorraine Keane.

That’s a shame: I was looking forward to them headbutting each other to death.

Another thing about RTE. Every single interview I have ever watched or listened to on RTE, when it is with someone who has left Ireland at some stage, involves the question: you’ve been away from Ireland from some time now – has it changed much in the time you’ve been away? And then the person says something like: yes, there is more money nowadays, or yes, these days it’s full of foreigners. Or, occasionally, yes, these days there are other flavours of sandwich apart from ham.

And another thing. This ‘Guerrilla Gourmet’ programme. It sort of trivialises guerrilla warfare a wee bit. I can’t imagine that Cabbage Timbale Of Celeriac And Chestnuts With Chanterelles In Brandy Cream was on the menu when Castro led the assault on the Moncada barracks. It would be more interesting if the people had to eat the food whilst getting attacked by guerrillas.

    Or indeed gorillas. Preferably starving ones.
