- James And Oz Drink Britain
Now t’other week I was watching the episode from Oireland where they couldn’t name “a certain dark stout with a rich creamy head” because of BBC advertising rules etc etc.
Now last night after in Cornwall they had a couple of pints, one from the north coast, one the south in St Austell Tribute glasses – could this be the same as naming “a certain dark stout with a rich creamy head” or is this just product placement – again that the BBC aren’t really meant to do.Posted 9 years agoGNARGNARMember
I think it’s one of the best programmes I’ve seen for years. No script, no plan, no bull**** just an excuse to drive round in a Roller, have a laff and get drunk.
How bad can that be?
Would you be suprised to learn that it is planned, scripted and full of shite? As above, it’s painfully contrived and very laboured in places.Posted 9 years agoGNARGNARMember
Nothing I see on STW surprises me. People can’t bear it if you happen to like something they don’t.
I still love it, don’t give two hoots about that….
I dont care whether you like it or not, I was commenting on your bold assertion that the programme was unscripted and unplanned and free from bullshit. Whether its shite or not is debatable, whether it’s scripted and unplanned absolutely is not. There is probably an amount of ad-libbing and improvisation which makes the final cut, but that’s it.Posted 9 years agodave_aberMember
TBH I’ve been enjoying it, but I wish they’d just not bothered going north of the border.
To investigate Whisky by simply going to a single distillery, and a far flung remote and almost unique one at that, and not even mention Speyside did seem like they were missing the point really. At least in Ireland they did mention Guinness a few times.
And as for
“nobody likes neeps and tatties anyway”
and having peas and carrots with Haggis – get a grip FFS. If Oz Clarke doesn’t like neeps & tatties then fair enough, don’t eat them, but to declare that his taste reflects that of the whole country? Fathead!. I didn’t hear them saying
“nobody really likes yorkshire puddings, so we’ll have roast beef and pancakes instead”
. Grrrr..Posted 9 years ago
