Anyone else catch this? They were reviewing ''Sorted''
It got pretty much slaughtered apart from PD James who said it wasn't brilliant but it would do alright.
But I think the point several of us were making here was that ''it will do alright'' is not acceptable when it is just about every show that's on. I want Brilliant. I want ''must see'' TV. And I don't think that is asking too much.
I don't know Danny Brocklehurst from a hole in the head except that he is in the Paul Abbot fold. I've no doubt he's a really nice guy. I've no doubt he's a very good writer. But the Paul Abbot fold and Andrew Davis fold and Tony Jordan fold are all in a very powerful position.
They account for much of the drama we see on TV. So why not use that power to force the execs to quit aiming for the middle of the road. I don't mind the odd kitchen sink drama and plodding cop shows but enough is enough.
