    Good, isn't it, Colin? Like you say, the soundtrack is SUPERB (almost worth watching for alone)! I do like the rather 'laddish' sense of humour, though...

    Hmmm watched white gold over a few nights. Wanted to like it but its didnt really work for me. The lead character was unlikeable & unbelievable and the supporting players seemed poorly written facsimiles of those in other better shows. It didnt really have many laughs either. Shame as it had a lot of potential.

    I sympathise with that view Ben, as I know exactly where you're coming from.

    However, for me the sales-orientated theme, depicting salesmen in a way I can relate to (being one myself), and the 'laddish' humour, cool 80s vibe, not to mention the superb soundtrack, were enough for me to make it entertaining viewing

    Cool Calling all Depeche Mode fans!

    If you're an 80s boy, like me, then chances are you'll love DM... Well, if you tune into Sky Arts HD tonight (CH 122) at 7pm you'll see them perform live in Berlin.

    Details here: http://www.asset1.net/show/depeche-mode

    Should be especially good if you watch the show on a quality home-cinema system [count me in] and crank up the sound - can't wait!

    Nope. Distracted by my new telly and being able to watch DVDs again for the first time in 3 years. I need to get one of those firestick things so can watch Prime on the big screen instead of the 10'' laptop.

    Lol... Wot's that got to do with the price of mince? White Gold was on BBC2.

    Btw, is your new TV Android, and therefore connected to the Internet to access its Smart facilities?
