Just watched The Madeleine McCann series on Netflix.

 

Was a good sum up of all that happened and you see some viewpoints from a lot of the people who was in and around the case.

 

Don't know if you English people are fed up with that case though..

 

I've worked on an awful lot of True crime series and I do find them fascinating, this one doesn't really appeal though, maybe it's the subject matter, maybe it's the fact that no one knows what happened and no one was convicted. Do we learn any new information or are they merely re-telling the story?

I tend to agree with this. Until a conclusion whether it being her being found alive or not everything is speculation. I think the other thing is the 2 younger siblings are now at an age where they will be more aware of things like social media and a greater understanding of what is being said. Their family name is obviously going to be dragged through the mud.

It highlighted to me how guilty the media were in their reporting of it... There's genuine testimonies which I hadn't a clue about until this documentary.

Then again though, it coincides with an era when the media began to report sensationalism over substance, and filled papers with rumour in order to sell more copies. Papers like the News of the World (never RIP), The Sun, Daily Mail, The Express... All should be disgusted by how their reporting potentially clouded the inquiry.

The media treatment was vile! And to be honest the media hasn't really changed since. As Denzel Washington put it in one of his interviews, he said something along the lines of "We live in a world we first is best. Doesn't matter if it is true or who it hurts, get it out there".

The new series of Game of Thrones is ticking along smoothly next week could potentially be one of the best bits of telly ever. I can't wait for it.

 

82 minutes of it for us to feast on!

    • Worst squad for me. Would be fun
    • Best opposition 11 (possibly prem era) although that could be too big a selection
    • 100% go with the worst squad, should be hilarious 
    • I think worst squad would bring plenty of discussion (and humour). 
    • Alright my fellow doyles! I'm up for running another 'Greatest' poll after the 'Greatest Squad' one seemed to be enjoyed. Next question is - what do you want it on? A few options that've been bandied about or I've though of: Greatest Squad - Pre-1995 Edition @BillyWoofs_shinpad I think it was put this one forward. There's a handful of squad numbers from the 70s/80s, so it could work, though could also be position based.   Worst Squad - Boro Edition Think it was @Liquid who suggested this one. Again, could be squad number or position based.   Greatest Concept Kit - Boro Edition Saw a site this morning which gave me this idea - also picked up from the kit vote the club ran on Twitter earlier in lockdown. Could run it like a Knock-Out Tournament with Home and Away on either side to come up with the Greatest Concept Kit pairing as voted by OneBoro fans.   If you have any further ideas, feel free to drop them here. We can have a vote on the final selection. ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
