Fair City Has Really Fantastic Actors That Should Be Paid More
Fair City is great, isn't it. I must love it, because this isn't my first post about it. Oh it's super.
I had the opportunity to try out one of the SoreView boxes that Uncle Gaybo has been telling us all to get. Fantastic, so they are. The future is here etc. It has all the normal channels plus extra ones like RTE NewsLoop, RTE Child Porn, and RTE 1+1. I was very taken with the RTE One+1 channel. It's like a time machine, sending you one hour back in time, meaning that if you miss nightly gran-wank with Mary Kennedy, you can just hit a button and it's back to the future with you. Brilliant! So imagine my surprise when I'm watching and then all of a sudden, I get a media black out notice.
"Is this it?" I wonder. "Have we finally entered 'End Game'. Will Enda Kenny come on the screen to tell us the nukes are overhead, take your iodine tablets, find refuge under the stairs, and await for further notice". No, it turns out that one hour beforehand RTE were showing an episode of Fair City and because the actors guild owns the world, RTE are not allowed show it for a second time, one hour later. It's the same reason Fair City doesn't appear on RTE's Player' site. The actors don't like the idea of being seen, you see. They are very shy like that.
We must respect them though. When you have actors, the quality of Dave Duffy, you really can't complain about their demands. Wonderful actors, they are all very wonderful.
