Update 19th January


Saturday
Utv 7pm 
The Masked Singer 
Well this is a reality show with a difference in that all the celebrity singers are wearing full costumes, for example, a unicorn so we don't know who they are and even more not even the judges know until the end of the show when the contestant reveals themselves upon being voted out.



Sunday
BBC 1 7.10
Doctor Who
This is certainly a tadhg TV favorite now it was on last year and I was confused because I thought there was no one playing doctor in the show but then in the last episode, I finally copped there was a female doctor and I must admit she is a very good doctor too.  The legend Bradley Walsh is in it as well ...Will the doctor and gang escape the Daleks? Well, the chase is on.



Monday 
Utv 9pm
Cold Feet 
We are spoiled for choice this week with the return of the  hot  90s comedy and they all good the same as they did 30 years ago especially Jimmy Nesbitt's hair



Tuesday 
Network 2 9pm 
The Godfather of Harlem 
This is a brand new show about the rise of Bumpy Johnston. Who of course was the predesaser to the American gangster himself Frank Locus

Great show encouraging people to get fit. I doubt even Harry Potter would have difficulty 
transforming me at this stage 

Thursday 
BBC 1 9pm 
Death in Paradise 
Ardel O'Hanlon is back for the start of this new run of fun in the sun 
I enjoy this show because its  a good laugh



Friday
Netflix 
Gavin and Stacey 
After watching the sitcom's  extremely well-recieved return on Christmas Day I thought I would watch some of the earlier episodes and they are priceless even with James Corden in them. 
That's it for this week



All the very best

This classic movie trilogy is been screened on RTE over 3 days

The comedy show of the year is back and it's in flying form. They give Sergeant Healy an awful time of it but it's just pure fun and all filmed in Cork.

Tuesday
Network 2 9pm
Ted 2
The walking talking teddy bear is back. The movie comes from the mind of Seth MacFarlane who is behind Family Guy so it certainly is not a kids movie.

Wednesday
BBC 1 9pm
The Apprentice
It's the big one yes its time for the dreaded interview  stages
The candidates are interviewed by a number of Alan Sugar's aides.
Lord Sugar, of course, makes the final decision which is will he eat that with or without salt.

So his back doing what he does best in a twice-weekly podcast filled with the usual fun and games you would expect from Danny

Friday
Channel 4 9pm
Gogglebox
The friends and families watch and comment on the tv highlights and lowlights
It's basically a real-life version of the classic BBC sitcom the Royal family so much so Craig Cash who played dave narrates gogglebox in his own unique way

Thursday
Streaming service of your choice
The Mandalorin
Now I'm a massive star wars fan and the new movie is not far far away but in the meantime 
This  new show based in the Star Wars Universe is worth a look. Now the mandalorins are a race of bounty hunters I prefer Twixs myself but I still enjoyed the show.

Friday
Itv4
Aew 
Now my favorite sport is wrestling and this is a brand new wrestling TV show from the states
It's very different to WWE but I think it will definitely give the McMahons a run for their money and the legend himself good ole jr Jim Ross is providing 'commandery' on the fights

That's in for this week
Have a good week and happy viewing

Saturday, November 9, 2019

Update 9th November


Hello and you're very very welcome to another full pack edition of  TadhgTV

Saturday
ITV 
8.10
Celebrity X Factor
The X Factor is back this year but with a little bit of a twist it features so called celebrities so at least we do not have to sit down and listen to a contestant saying I am doing this for my dog who passed away 6 months ago.
I wonder who will win it will it be the ex footballer ? The lady who appears on a quiz show or the person who was in GLEE.

Sunday 
BBC 2
11.10
They Shall Not Grow Old
I honestly cannot recommend this show enough it is just fantastic it uses footage from World War 1 and match it is with audio from the Imperial War Museum.
I think every child going to school and studying history should have to watch this show because it's so well done the story is brought to life by Peter Jackson who is in The Hobbit of making good productions .

Monday
RTE 2 
9.30
The Young Offenders
The lads from Cork are back for a second season and if it is half as good at the first one we are in for a right good laugh.

Tuesday
Sky one 
10pm
The Dark Knight
Now this is my 3rd favourite movie of all time after Blazing Saddles and the Naked Gun
Now as much as  I'd love to go into great detail about Blazing Saddles I  will have to wait for another time
The  Dark Knight is about Batman and the Joker played by late great  Heath Ledger
You would be a clown to miss it

Wednesday
RTE Player
The Late Late Show
You all know my opinion on the Late Late Show at this stage but this is a very special show in tribute to Gay Byrne  featuring all of Ireland's   best musicians and Bob Geldof

Thursday
Channel 4
The Accident
This drama Stars  Raquel from Coronation Street. So the story is a group of teenagers play in an abandoned mine and and hence the title are involved in an accident I am sure that Channel 4 Executives are looking at the viewers reaction and viewing figures and thinking that was an accident  commissioning the show in the  first place

Friday
BBC 1
7.30
Children In Need
Yes it's that time of year again from BBC. Pull out all the stops for a night of entertainment comedy and music all in aid of very worthy causes. 
Its hard not to think of the legend himself Terry Wogan while watching this as you all know this was always his annual TV outing  

Now I  will leave it at that for this week
Hope you all HAVE a great weekend

Happy viewing
Tiger

Saturday
BBC 1
Strictly
It's time to grab your glitter balls, make yourself a cup of cha cha cha  and enjoy some proper Saturday night tv. I know it's not as much fun as it was when Brucie was presenting and to be fair he should have been replaced by a comedian when he stepped down as opposed to a talking fringe.

Sir David Attenborough is back with a brilliant tv show. each episode focuses on a different part of the world. This week is Asia.

Faulty Towers
One of my favourite comedies of all time and this is a classic episode featuring a certain Orish builder. More on Faulty Towers later.

Wednesday
Netflix
Top Boy
I'm sure a lot of you are aware of this great show already. It's based in a housing estate in east London and the drug gangs that operate in them. If your child finishes every sentence with the word FAM it's possibly coming from this show.

The Russell Howard Hour
This is one of my favourite shows.
Russell gives his unique take on the weeks events and he also has brilliant guests.
