    Last summer after our defeat to Newcastle I had a meltdown and did the whole sticking my head out the window and shouting im as mad as hell and im not going to take it anymore. Network being my favourite comedy movie of all time.

    Breaking Bad being my favourite t.v. show of all time, the gods are smiling on all of us, as Bryan Cranston is coming to London in November and he will be doing the whole going mental thing for us at the National.

    I think, wrongly may I add that some of you view me as a deranged figure on here, but I implore you to go get tickets and watch this. The theatre I appreciate is not for everyone but this is going to be epic, and as spurs fans i am sure you will be standing up at the end and shouting your mad as hell.

    Bryan Cranston is to make his UK stage debut as the unhinged TV news anchor Howard Beale in a National Theatre production of the 1976 film Network.

    The actor, who played chemistry teacher turned criminal mastermind Walter White in Breaking Bad, will star in a new production to be directed by the in-demand Ivo van Hove.

    Lee Hall has adapted Paddy Chayefsky’s screenplay for Sidney Lumet’s film, which won four Oscars and is regularly ranked among the best films of all time.

    Rufus Norris, the National Theatre’s artistic director, announced new productions on Friday. They include John Tiffany directing Pinocchio and Norris directing Macbeth starring Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff.

    Norris said Network was “one of the greatest media satires of all time and incredibly prescient”.

    The film stars Peter Finch as a news anchorman told he is going to lose his job because of falling ratings. He goes off the rails with a series of on-air rants including the famous line: “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

    Norris said Cranston had a fantastic pedigree as a stage actor. “It is great to broaden our pool of actors but the main thing is, can they do the job? And he clearly can. It is a wonderful part and a part which requires something compelling and special,” he said.

    Van Hove is something of a superstar in the theatre world with actors queuing up to work with him. He directed Ruth Wilson in the current production of Hedda Gabler at the National and is directing Jude Law in a version of Visconti’s Obsession at the Barbican, opening in March. Other productions on the Belgian’s CV include the David Bowie show Lazarus and the West End and Broadway hit A View from the Bridge.

    Norris described Van Hove as an extraordinary director. “It is a kind of a new phenomenon that a theatre director would get that kind of international kudos,” he said.

    The problem with that is we'd all have to risk sitting down in the theatre, only to notice the chap sat next to us is wearing tights and has a couple of packets of Birds finest ready for the interval.

    Sso we went last night to the national to see Network, Cranston was simply amazing, at times understated and other times just such power and energy. Great night out, what was a bit odd was that some people were having dinner on the side of the stage as the play was going on, won a competition or something I guess. I like the national inside is really good theatre sitting and good bars. Just so bloody ugly when you walk past the outside.

    At the end on a screen all the presidents since Ford come up on the screen, when it got to Trump the biggest boo I have heard in my life rang out. It was a little lefty guardian reading the audience. But as someone who hates Trump and is voting for Corbyn next time I have to come to terms with the fact that despite the fact I always thought I was right wing I am actually a closet lefty.

    The play was certainly making some not to suitable links with todays environment and media situation. But it was good because it was both funny and thought provoking like all good art should be. My sister the Solicitor who used to work for the Mayors office in Red Kens time, she only goes to the theatre to see musicals which I I strongly disagree are not theatre,(do not mind a musicial myself now and again).

    The wife got me into theatre over 10 years ago, we now go about 6 times a year. Next up is of mice and men in Brighton in April which I am looking forward to. Theatre is about one of the best things going in this country. Saw last night that the is a play at the national set in a black barber shop which I remember reading about in the guardian(oh fudge me i am one) and it seems really interesting story about a culture that is not really my own.

    Great thing about the national is they train and promote new writers and directors. Also saw in the upstairs bar that Indian bloke from channel 4 news as I say a very left wing crowd. But a bloody good play and a good night, did find people eating on the stage during the performance a bit distracting.

    Think it sod out within minutes last September, they might have extended it though, or maybe it will transfer to the west end. If it gets rid of some of those fcuking singing things then it wont be a bad thing.

    Desmond's is a British television situation comedy broadcast by Channel 4 from 1989 to 1994. With 71 episodes, Desmond's became Channel 4's longest-running sitcom.[1] The first series was shot in 1988, with the first episode broadcast in January 1989. The show was made in and set in Peckham, London, and featured a predominantly black British Guyanese cast.

    Conceived and co-written by Trix Worrell, and produced by Charlie Hanson and Humphrey Barclay,[2] this series starred Norman Beaton as barber Desmond Ambrose. Desmond's shop was a gathering place for an assortment of local characters

    OI did not watch much t.v. in that period, I worked all day on building sites and in the evenings behind bars in pubs and clubs.

    Good idea for a play I thought.
