Sean Maguire: something in the tap water at Grange Hill?

Posted on March 17, 2008 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Sean Maguire seems to be a bit popular these days. In fact, the post where I realised that the young Aidan from Grange Hill was in fact the gay guy in The Class (now on E4 on repeated loop) is the third most popular of the blog (via Google Image Search, unsurprisingly).

While wandering around St Anns shopping mall in Harrow on the Hill the other day, I couldn't help noticing his name on the poster for Meet the Spartans, the new 'comedy' starring Carmen Electra and Kevin 'Hercules' Sorbo, among others. Does anyone else think that perhaps there's something in the tap water at Grange Hill that produced a certain physical change? Or maybe that's a stunt chest.

The difference is that I only caught the second half rather than the first half, since we were doing something vitally important at 9pm (watching Terminator 2 on DVD). Will have to use the iPlayer to catch up at some point.

As a little experiment to determine what annoys me most about DI Drake, I tried putting my thumb between me and the TV to block her out. Turns out though, it's her voice and everything she says that set my teeth on edge. Not sure if there's a journal I can write that up in or not – maybe the Journal for Marginally Insane Bloggers.

All the same, it was a little bit redundant as an experiment because she wasn't that bad last night and I thought the episode was better than previous efforts.

Review: Torchwood 2x9 - Something Borrowed

 Torchwood - Episode 2x9

True story: when my wife and I announced we were going to get married, the first question we got from a sizeable proportion of Welsh people was "Oh, when's it due?" When we said 'it' wasn't, they almost all said, "Oh, there's posh". 

That's Welsh weddings for you (apparently).
