Louis Theroux

#1

Had this guy’s documentaries recommended to me so threw a few on the mp3 player. Must say I think they’re crap. Any thoughts, please feel free to add a comment below. Doesn’t have to be about Louis Theroux, it can be anything you choose.

#2

I enjoyed them I must admit. His one on Jimmy Saville was top class TV - what an absolute weird fook yer man is…

#3

Have heard him get good reports but never watched any of his stuff myself.

#4

Whats the story Clarkey? you’re all over the board like a lamp chop today, slow day at the ‘office’?

#5

Bored of Thailand CM and really just filling in time before heading to Oz on Sunday night. Also just filling in time before some suit fittings later on. And maybe a bucket.

#6

Poor chap, you have it tough alright… you bollox!! I’m off to Spanish Point for a pissing wet August Bank holiday and poor Clarkey is bored in Thailand. Shan was right all along! :rolleyes:

I’m just a poor boy,
Nobody loves me.

#8

Watch the Vegas one. That’s pretty funny.

#9

there is aright good one where he goes off with some religious nut jobs who picket soldiers funerals in america and call everyone that doesn’t agree with them a “fag”

#10

Where in the land of smiles are you now Clarkey?

#11

Back in Bangkok ahead of a flight to Sydney tomorrow. Looking forward to getting back to some semblance of normality for a while.

#12

The Vegas one is interesting, some auld wan playing the slots for eight hours a day everyday. She’s done about $5 million but loves it. The casino throw her the odd complimentary Diet Coke now and then.

Anyone watch the crime ones tonight and last week?

Very scary stuff tonight in Johannesburg but comepletely compelling. Hope we don’t get based there in 2010…

Johannesburg looks a dangerous old place

good programmes though

I have heard that every fan going to certain cities in SA for the World Cup will be given a walkie talkie and they’ll be tracked to make sure they don’t go into any dodgy areas. Didn’t believe it at the time and I still don’t, but it is an extremely dangerous place and I couldn’t see myself going there if we qualify.

#16

I’m gagging to go there. Have heard really good reports from people who’ve been. Thinking I’ll volunteer in Tanzania for a bit and then head to SA for the World Cup. That’d be sensational.

#17

Been to ellis park, its only a 10 minute walk from Hillbrow which is a no go area for anyone with more than 2 bob in their pocket, good shoes or with white skin, couldn’t believe louix was walking round there he must have had some serious heavies with him.

THe Joburg programme last night was pretty interesting.
Theroux is classic bleeding heart liberal type and seemed shocked at the level of brutality that was evident. He couldn’t understand why a mob (literally) wanted to burn a local hired security/paramilitary/mercenary type who had broken some thief’s leg. Still the private security were tough boyos, they beat the shit out of some lads chasing another fellow down the street, and then beat the victim as well for good measure- all on camera.
In light of some of the shit that has happened in Dublin in the last 24 hours we may not be as far away from the SOuth African mentality as some might think.

Where is the massive public out cry over this shooting in Dublin? An innocent man has been shot been shot dead by a gang of teenagers and it’s barely made the front page of any of the papers?

#20

I don’t know but its a fucking disgrace. A bunch of scumbag tearaways gun down an innocent man. Was it in the papers at all? I haven’t seen them, I got the impressino from the news this morning that it might have happened late enough compounded by the details only coming out even later.
