Jamaica Inn

BBC costume drama Jamaica Inn. Mumble Mumble Mumble from start to finish! I could see their lips moving but couldn't understand or hear a word. Utter shambles but with some lovely scenery.

    The BBC are, apparently, issuing, or have issued, apologies all round for this acknowledged fiasco.

    Have you not yet received a personal letter of apology from Lord Hall of Birkenhead who, at a salary of £450,000 per annum, must surely not be at a loss to afford a stamp?

    Happily, being without a television our evening was not sullied.

    1. With his fortune and a lord to boot, he can take me out for dinner to apologise.

      However, after seeing his photograph, I think a letter of apology would suffice.

  2. I watched something else.... I haven't a clue what??
    But have you seen the BBC2 Estate Agent programme? Much funnier than you'd think.

    1. I haven't seen the Estate Agent programme, I'll have to watch out for it. I've seen Homes Under The Hammer with the very dishy Martin Roberts.

    Have seen Gordon Ramsey loudly cursing at others in a kitchen.

  4. Apparently a sound level problem according to the beeb........loud guffaws at reading that. This is an industry wide problem of using actors who just can't speak clearly!

  6. Apparently this is a naturalistic style of presenting dialogue coupled with crap sound recording according to some bod on the news. I switched over because it was making me into Grumpy Old Woman. xx

    1. I very nearly threw a cup at the screen, I should have done in retrospect and sent the bill to the BBC.

  7. Perhaps it was filmed on laceration in a Yorkshire bus stop.

    1. That would have been more preferable.

  8. Sounds like we get the best of the BBC. I always thought as such. They can't be that good all the time!

    USA T.V. SUCKS!

    Don't get me started on automated radio stations that play, "All the songs you love to hate."

    Perhaps if you pay another million T.V. tax pounds a year to the crown you might have better audio. Me? I'm good at the moment with the free programs and Netflix and Hulu. No cable for shitty programs anymore. I cut the cable leeches loose.
