Mission Impossible: Ireland

The IMF team visited Ireland, in 1988. This is no Tom Cruise movie. This is the 1988-1990 remake of the 70’s hit TV series and I was glued to it.

Shame about the awful Irish accents but this was around the time of Far and Away when Tom made an appearance alongside Nicole Kidman with some really dire accents.

Remember when Miley and Fidelma rolled in the hay?

That was 1998!

The Reeling in the Years for 2016 will be an eye-opener, but I bet 2019 will be even crazier.

Daredevil Stairwell Fight Scene

I’m catching up on Daredevil on Netflix and this fight scene in series 2, episode 3 blew me away. The slow methodical way Daredevil ploughs through his enemies countering hits, disabling outstretched arms with guns pointed at him and smashing light bulbs that chain is mesmerising.

Frank Kelly’s 12 Days of Christmas

Is it too late for Frank Kelly’s parody of 12 Days of Christmas?

Frank was probably best known as Father Jack on the show Fr. Ted, but I came across him first on an old vinyl record of his stories. He also produced many comedy sketches such as this one:

And he features in this clip of Yu Ming is Ainm Dom:
