Tellypanel

Did you stay up?

A firm handshake to, above from left: Neil Curran, Mike McGrath Bryan and Johnny Keenan, our all-male panel from last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

Owing to a number last minute cancellations and [frown] a few ‘no shows’ we were left without women for only the second time in the show’s history.

Subjects manfully wrestled included a bit of Fennelly, Irish Water protests and foreign direct investment. Much boyish enthusiasm, towel snapping and ‘sailor talk’ ensued.

You can watch the show in its entirety above.

On April 20, we will be hosting a ‘Reefer Special’ about pot in Ireland. If you are a midnight toker or simply interested in the ‘erb’s medicinal properties and would like to take part please send short bio to broadsheet@broadsheet.ie marked ‘Broadsheet on the Telly.

Thanks all.

      It was like watching three men in their underwear and a guy with a twitch. Johnny should do an improv course with Mr. Curran .He should then get rid of “I am so radical because I curse and munch on peanuts ” sidekicks.

        DPS I am so radical I can chew peanuts and it looks like Mike is doing it. Obviously my peanut is quicker than your eye. I curse because my vocabulary is fuppin’ limited.

            Nice one Anne!

            I do like to use some words to make impact. These words tend to offend some people which is of course is my objective.
            If someone is offended by my words but don’t comment on my comment at least I know the kind of person that is.
            For example Some people usually ‘moral arbiters’ who are middle aged conservative women and some Americans are offended by the ‘C’ word. Ain’t that a Cunt!

            omg they let u say ladypart! ha ha

            People who are offended by ‘bad’ language are usually proper boo boos in fairness & boring windbags.

    ‘You’ve been stood up, tears fill your eyes,
    Oh, Oh,
    You hurt inside, you wanna die ie ie ie,
    Oh, Oh,
    You wanna see her, you wanna see her, Oh Yeah,
    So you wait, you wait and wait,
    Girl don’t come. “

          What are you plus oneing about?

          And take me off moderation – it makes you look really cheap

          1. Ratatattat

            Thanks Bodger that’s very generous. However for now I’m happy with the rest of the world completely ignoring me in this forum.

      1. Ratatattat

        Things that look like Ireland, terrible parking one sees, the price of things – would you believe it?, grand stretches, kids diving into the grand canal basin, lads sitting outside the barge pub and Leather Jacket Guy – what is the real story about the dirt he has on Bodger

    Sorry to be negative, but heres some constructive criticism. You’re 9 episodes in and haven’t done a thing to improve the format. Visually, this looks horrific and would be enough to turn the casual viewer off.

    Ditch google hangouts and look into streaming software and skype. Design a very simple graphic and sit peoples screens into it rather than the hit and miss vision mixing when people talk over each other.

    The format isn’t a new idea and the video game lads have it down to a tee.
    Some examples:

      +1 Imho, it does have a lonely men who live alone and could do with a few sunrays look about it. I’m not sure how you’d make it more pleasing to the eye. Would gathering y’all in one room with a couple of camera angles be totally out of the question?

  4. Sheik Yahbouti

    Ah, lads, bit of a sad oul’ turnout. Let’s face it, it appears t & a is the only way to draw the punters. Good Luck!

          1. Deluded

            I saw a great site for that special gift for someone, maybe there is a writer in your life-
            it’s called “Pen Island”.

    There’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with the format. It should NEVER change, except maybe….
    The medium itself is lacking. You should be able to talk over each other, not wait for your turn like schoolchildren.
    Nobody wants to hear someone go on and on about how much they agree with the previous speaker.
    Seriously… there’s a bit too much of that.

    But yeah…
    Buck the freegrudgers.

      PS.
      rotide, I agree with you, except over the definition of the word ‘format’.
      I think you confuse it with the word ‘presentation’.

      I’m a pedant.
      Just warning you.

    1. Johnny Keenan

      I would say look at it and make up your own mind but Shur it depends on what yer into.
      The thing with second hand news is you don’t have to think for yourself.
      Oh Apathy thank you for thinking for thee

      1. rotide

        Johnny, every word spoken on BOTT is second hand news. Just in case you hadn’t realised that.
