    Default Marstons on the Telly

    A three part series showing Marstons at work is on Channel 5 this Friday 8pm (29th) and the following two Fridays, whatever you think of their beers it should be interesting.

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Too blokey, too many double entendre, too many fart jokes, too much looking for "characters" - oh dear

    Can anybody make a decent programme about beer?

    4/10 I think.

    I found it rather dull but beer nutters were probably not their target audience. BBC2 would almost certainly have done a better job, and to think I delayed watching the Celebrity Big Brother eviction by an hour!!

    I started watching my recording of the programme, but just found it to be down to the normal Channel 5 standard, so turned off

    OB has it nicely

    Likewise. I think I managed about ten minutes before I gave up. A wasted opportunity, it could have been quite interesting.

    I guess I don't need to follow this up on my magic box recorder.
