Episode 50 – The Beatles, The End?

by | Nov 7, 2023 | 0 comments

Is it really the end? Did we like the final Beatles product?

And what’s more, did we ever think Monty Python was funny? Is comedy in some cases more about a sense of unity with like-minded fans, rather than actual laughs? We try to put these thorny issues to bed.

In other news, we trail All The Light We Cannot See, the dramatisation of Anthony Doerr’s acclaimed novel, and the police procedural Shetland, now  up to season 8. Tommy Emmanuel will tour NZ and ElTele will be there. We’re both slightly baffled by TikTok train spotter Francis Bourgeois.

And will New Zealanders appreciate Mortimer and Whitehouse going fishing on primetime TV?
