TV: S is for...


SNOW-SKIMMING flag-slaloming Alpine ITC misfire landing on Saturday afternoons like Eddie The Eagle Edwards after a particularly clip show come-hithering jump. Steve ‘Son Of Norman’ Hudis starred as flourescent-togged Bobby Noel, thwarting international criminals on an implausible snow-covered mountain crime spree trajectory by, well, skiing at them. Didn’t catch on even at the high watermark of Toblerone-waving Chairlift Vogue silliness, and viewers promptly held up cards reading ‘0’ and ‘0’. All Look-In could find to say about it was ‘TV’s Newest Series’. Description-defying disco-funk theme song seems to have been inspiration for Daft Punk’s entire career.

    Created by Derrick Sherwin, who just three years earlier had created UNIT, relaunched Doctor Who and arguably saved it from cancellation. What a comedown.

    Grace Jones is a singer and model who will divide opinions forever. Her mixture of funk, disco and synth music was always worth a listen, the videos were excellent, but her, should we say, very athletic body and face divide people. One friend likened her to freak of nature , another said she was unconventionally beautiful, and I tend to go with the latter. Also great in Roger’s last outing as 007, where she kicks butt as the Amazonian Mayday, the ultimate in bad Bond girls.
