We prefer Henry Morgan’s pre-colonel portrayal of General MacArthur in M*A*S*H to be honest, since he plays him as a complete loon – which he undoubtedly was – but as long as we’re here…Pretty standard stuff as far as this sort of thing goes, focusing much on the General’s time running Japan and stuffed with the kind of American actor you only get to see in this kind of film, like Dan O’Herlihy and Ward Costello.Read More

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Sorry, it is a bit of a quiet start to the week but, honestly, it does get better. That does not coincide with this channel rebranding itself as Christmas Gold on Tuesday, because the schedule is more or less exactly the same, especially given this weekend while it goes under its usual name they’re showing a load of Only Fools Christmas Specials anyway, over fourteen hours of them today. We had assumed that, and had decided to bill them because, they were showing them all, but in fact it’s just the early nineties ones a couple of times, though it does offer the chance to see Miami Twice in its original two part form rather than the abridged version with added laugh track made for video release. If you miss it, though, you’ll no doubt see it again before the decorations come down.
