Bank Holiday Television

Usually I don't watch much TV, especially on Bank Holidays when the major channels just recycle old specials in a cheap way to attract viewer figures.

However this morning BBC1 showed the McGyver movie, truly crap but being a fan of the TV show, when it was on years ago, I thought I'd watch it again. It's all filmed in London, even the Baltic state scenes which were actually filmed in the empty shell of Battersea Power Station (you could see the towers in a couple of shots). Richard Dean Anderson sports a superb mullet and Brian Blessed runs around shouting, because he can't talk at a normal volume.

Truly trashy but it killed 90 minutes today and now I know how to escape from a prison cell using a cigarette lighter and a lightbulb.
