It plumbed new depths the other night.
Did they play a Mirinda advert? I dare say it doesnít get lower than that.

I fail to see the relevance of a stupid ad from 1971 done to get a few bob to buy equipment to what was on tv last Fri night.

A desperately unfunny Pat Short
An even unfunnier Jason Byrne
A fake pub scene with an obviously drink - damaged Shane McGowan in situ.
Philomena Begley butchering Fairytale.

It was badly thought out and badly presented in my opinion.

But he looks so happy they didn't cancel.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and
means what he says...

Shane sometimes takes a while to get his answers out, but Tubridy never let him say anything beyond one sentence. Always skipping onto someone else, when the man in question was right beside him, and could talk for himself.

It was nearly like being at a wake, but the person is still alive. Was a strange night.

Iíve read a book of interviews with Shane, and heís a highly intelligent and articulate man. It had some great stories a brilliant read, but we got very little of that on the LLS.

I have to say, I just cannot abide Tubridy.
The LLS is all about him, it doesn't matter who he "interviews". I haven't watched it now in years he annoys me that much.
I think on the Toy Show even, he's too condescending to the kids.

McGowan and Begley was the most surreal moment on TV this decade. A fitting tribute to Gay Byrne.

Incredibly Philomena Begley has that big of a notion of herself she didn't either; a) think to learn the words or b) tell the producers she didn't know them. Shocking arrogance. I always heard she was a bit of a... but this confirms it.

Time this show was confined to the bin.

What was the book - wouldnt mind a read at that myself.

Agreed with everyone else who said Tubridy is a p***k - Would love a change to the presenter

Youd often meet Philomena about home and she wouldnt give you this impression - she seems to down to earth enough.

Although when asked on to sing fairytale of New York you'd think she'd have made sure she learned the words UNLESS they sprung this on her at the show as they hadn't planned it!

IT WAS AWFUL!

No .... apparently they only have bands on who are prepared to fill a brown envelope as advance payment for the appearance ... or so I've heard.
