    Waffle On Christmas Special.

    Hello and Merry Christmas to you all. Its Christmas time and why not settle back and enjoy our Christmas special. On this show Meds talks with Woody (Simon Wood), Ray (David Ray) and Chris (Chris Powell) all about television ad films shown on British television. Obviously because we are enjoying beers and mince pies the whole show goes off on a complete waffle. We've carefully edited any swear words but please note we do waffle on pretty quickly.

    We also announce our competition winner. Last episode we asked what was Meds and kells combined weight, well the answer was 164kgs and our winner, Katrin from Berlin gave her answer as 163.67kgs so pretty darn close. Here is a picture of our competition winner with her prize of the Stargaxer CD from Rick Moyer ( www.takehimwithyou.com ) and some chocolate from us here at Waffle On which you can buy from ( www.williescarcao.com )

    Massive thanks to Woody, Chris and Ray for joining me. Big thanks also go to Rick Moyer for giving us his excellent CD for the competition.

    Auf Wiedersehen, Pet

    On this months episode Meds and Kell talk about the classic comedy drama Auf Wiederdehen, Pet. Created by Franc Roddam and written by the brilliant Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais it ran from 1983 to 1986 and then from 2004 to 2008. Introducing such actors as Tim Healy, Timothy Spall, Kevin Whately, Jimmy Nail, Pat Roach, Christopher Hairbank, Gary Holton and later Noel Clarke to the screens all of these actors have gone to higher things, except Gary, sadly he died during filming of the second series.

    The basics of Pet are a group of our of work builders head to Germany to seek work, here we see them get into all kind of situations some good, and many involving the character of Oz brilliantly played by the awesome Jimmy Nail. There was only four series of Auf Wiederdehen, Pet and because of the sad loss of Pat Roach i very much doubt we will see these characters on our television screens again.

    Enjoy.

    We'd just like to thank Arthur Vasey Robbo1510, Eamon, Dangelus and Crystal who both sent us nice comments over the past months. And a big shout out to Rick Moyer, and Peter Foltz who all contributed to Waffle On, we shall shout you on our next recording.

    Apologies for the clicking sounds you may hear during this episode. We recorded this two months ago before i became a dad and we think it was the old battery lead causing the odd click in recording. We have a new lead so all is well. Thanks

    Fawlty Towers

    Join Meds and Kell as they talk about this fabulous British Comedy Fawlty Towers. Written and performed by John Cleese and Connie Booth, Fawlty Towers is now over 34 years old and still going strong. Only two series were made and its a formula that comedians such as Ricky Gervais have taken upon themselves to keep their own comedy fresh. Also starring Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales the team created a wonderful programme that has never been beaten.

    The premise of the show is centred around Basil Fawlty played by Cleese a hotel owner who is dominated by his wife Sybil and has an amazing disregard for anyone who is below what he classes as 'the best class'. A fantastic comedy that is worth not only hearing about here but must be viewed to get the ultimate pleasure of Cleese and Booths writing.

    Star Wars In the Shadows. On this special mini waffle on i talk about a fantastic new audio drama coming out soon called Star wars in The Shadows, it is written, directed and produced by Dany Pepin (37y/o) a French-Canadian born in Quebec, now living in Ottawa, Ontario. SWITS is Dany's first original story of any type in his second language (English) and only second audio drama project following the surprising adaptation of Karen Traviss' short story Omega Squad: Targets. Dany was mostly known in Star Wars fandom by his implication in the French community and his Star Wars radio show Star Wars en Direct, both in French (since 2001) and English (2003-2006). SWITS is a classic Star Wars space opera not unlike "A New Hope". I would describe it as a light fugitive/adventure type of story with some mature theme inserted within. SWITS has obviously been inspired by the Star Wars movies but also its Expanded Universe (EU) like the media giant Shadows of the Empire and The Force Unleashed. There are many small EU references that will appeal to the fans of the genre, but most importantly the participation of Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Xizor, Guri and Mon Mothma in the actual story plot. head to www.creativeaudioscape.com for more info.

    John Ryan.

    Cartoonist John Ryan, creator of the Captain Pugwash TV series, has died in hospital in Rye, East Sussex, aged 88. The BBC commissioned the first series in 1957 after spotting potential in Ryan's books about the tales of Pugwash and his nemesis Cut Throat Jake. His agent, Jane Gregory, said there was "a huge amount of love" for the childish pirate and his shipmates, who included Tom the Cabin Boy and Willy. Captain Horatio Pugwash was created in 1950 while Ryan was an art teacher at Harrow School, shortly after he got married to fellow artist Priscilla. It was published, in the same year, in the first edition of the Eagle comic. A book deal followed, before it was adapted for TV by the BBC in 1957, with black-and-white episodes being made until 1967. Colour episodes were shown on the BBC in a mid-1970s revival. Ms Gregory told BBC News he was "always enthusiastic, always charming". "A lot of the character of Captain Pugwash was John, which is probably why we loved him as much. We devote this mini waffle on to the memory of John Ryan.

    Welcome to our second mini waffle episode. We do like to stick these in between our standard shows. So, here is what we give you today. We’re planning on doing a special episode next. We were going to do Callan (we still are so don’t worry) but instead we are going to do a Waffle On Special, that’s right a special.

    The state of British TV at the moment is pretty poor (as far as myself and kell think) so we thought we’d do a Waffle On about ‘whats wrong with British TV’ So if you fancy adding your opinions via email or mp3 then please drop us a email at waffleonpodcast@googlemail.com and we will read or play them on the show. If you live in the UK and you want to have a rant about the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 or Channel 5 then please do, if you are from outside the UK then please i’d love to know your thoughts on the state of British TV.

    Hope you enjoy this second mini episode, we’ll be back next week with the full on rant. Remember we record at the end of next week (around the 23rd of April so you have loads of time to send us your opinions.

    Porridge

    Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais Porridge notched up 18 episodes, two Christmas specials and a film and never have a bad patch. Starting with the pilot 'Prisoner and Escort' in April 1973 Porridge boosted character actor Ronnie Barker out of the role of sketch comedian and into the world as a serious comedy actor. Joined by the talents of Richard Beckinsale, Fulton Mackay and Brian Wilde Porridge entertained the British public for four years.

    Set in the fictional Slade prison in Cumberland Norman Stanley Fletcher is sentenced to five years. He is joined by first time criminal Leonard Godber and the two are paired off together in a cell much to Fletchers annoyance. Slowly the two become good friends and Godber learns that little victories are what can keep a man sane in prison. Keeping an eye on the inmates is ex drill sergeant Mr Mackay who rules the block with a rod of iron. Second to Mackay is the ever pondering Mr Barrowclough who Fletcher easily wraps round his finger.

    Join Meds and Kell for an hour long chat all about this classic 70's comedy, and listen at the end of the podcast for some promos of other podcasts that you may find interesting.
