    Just about to watch 'A Good Day To Die Harder', not seen it before but I liked the 'previous installments in the franchise', as they say.

    The Superbowl.

    New England are getting pasted at the moment.

    It is an interesting story how American football got started. When the Puritans went to America they had their hands full for a while but after a few years they got settled and found they had no sport. Cricket was suggested but no-one knew how to make a cricket bat. One bloke recalled that at school they had played a game with a much cruder bat that anyone could whittle out of a thick branch. That game was Rounders but, worried about licencing constraints (Puritans are big worriers), they decided to call it 'Base Ball' and pretend it was something different entirely.

    So that was the summer sorted but what about the winter? Now in any civilised country this would be devoted to Association Football. Problem was this was before the FA had been invented and football was just a piss-up and a fight between two villages on Shrove Tuesday. And the Puritans had come to America to get away from all that drunken rowdiness. So that was out.

    Luckily Rugby had already been invented, by bizarre coincidence, at Rugby School. So they decided to play that but no-one had thought to bring a rule book with them so they had to work from their memories, which were a bit dim and distant by that point. There was a big argument about whether or not you were allowed to pass forward, The people who said 'Of course you can! What would be the point of only passing backwards?' won and so the game of American Football was born.

    Those who lost went north and started Canada. They gave up on Rugby but someone had a rule book for hockey and so that's how that got started.

    Just a bit of history for you there.

    It's a brilliant comedy that's never been re-run or released on DVD but both series currently available on youtube.

    I thought that I vaguely recalled watching it, which is wrong as I just checked and it was on from 1988 to 1990 and I didn't have a telly back then. Unless it was repeated in the early 1990s.

    In other news I have run out of the Bilko episodes I taped from Forces TV and they have stopped showing it

    Unknown (2011) stars Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger and January Jone. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who seems to like making films with Neeson.



    Amazon Prime content. No idea if its any good, but it did well at the box office taking in $136 mil; more than 4 times its cost
