Three Men In a Boat
Some of you may know that I am a huge fan of Jerome K Jerome, so it was with great interest I watched BBC2's recreation of the river journey in 'Three Men In A Boat'. I wish I hadn't bothered. Why recreate the journey taken in one of the funniest books ever written, featuring two of the least funny people who ever lived and Dara O'Brien who is a funny stand up but on the evidence of this programme not funny on holiday?
It was a drag, even the dog wasn't funny. If you had the misfortune to see this programme and have never read any Jerome, please don't be put off by this travesty. His books are absolutely hilarious. Look at the links below.
