Now it could be that I’m not as good as I thought I was with this ‘tinternet thing. But regular, at the very least weekly, dumping of the cache needs doing for those cookies can give ongoing personal info to all and sundry. This should be done before checking flights on-line for the scumy airlines put prices with the cookie, and a dump done before each time you do a check. While if you have Firefox like I do and are running XP. Dumping the entire thing [don’t forget the download files sitting in ‘my documents’ in the start menu], restarting, defragging and then and only then re-install. I hadn’t done this and had a list of stuff longer that your arm squatting in the memory of the browser. I had stuff from five generations ago that had moved with the upgrade each time. And you really need to check Facebook settings if you are part of that insanity, they are by far the worst.
I was shocked, I tell you, shocked to the very core. They remade Hawaii five-0. Now I hadn’t seen the first one first time round. But I did see it in the 70s sometime. Anyhoo, I thought that I was in for a treat. A re-run of Jack Lord and had girded my self with a frisson of excitement to see the Polynesian outrigger canoe with that drum-roll. Only to find brittle acting, more than a tad gay in that ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ way, with some utterly sexless pseudo hot people prancing about. They didn’t even have the brain to shoot the darn Islands without half-baked camera technique ruining the only actor that could act effortlessly.
Imagine then my incandescence at finding they have remade Charlie’s Angels also. Setting it in Florida of all the places they could have put it. It’s from the same stable. Well stable is insulting to horses frankly. You need to think those that mess with the genetics of Goldfish to get close to the texture of this programme. This pair makes the CSI butchering of Quincy ME look like a reasonable homáge and lifts that plank-like acting in CSI to the realm of an award. Now I will grant the originals weren’t high drama, but dammit you knew the actors had at least a nodding acquaintance with the words coming out of their mouths, here you are certain they are just noise to these people. While the use of the word craft would insult those like Jack Lord, Jack Klugman and David Doyle if you ever thought the current lot knew such existed.
