"Did you threaten to overrule him?" repeated x 1 million

The first one is almost as good as most weather forecasts.

Les centimètres énigmatiques (snoball), Sunday, 10 October 2010 22:31 (eleven years ago) link

but I am voting for "almost worth going to work"

Can you imagine how bad Piers Morgan would be as a weatherman?

paxman is a cunt

Perhaps, but I like him.

His cnutishness is directed towards people who deserve it, to be fair.

I was just thinking about the whole 'newsnight weather' 'episode' yesterday, after being reminded of the Russell Brand interview.

Paxman is watchable and actually does try to ask questions and take people out of their comfort (you could only say that of Jon Snow and maybe Kirsty Wark about five years ago). I guess that's overrating him in the TV news world, and how much these people can really do when guests (not just politicians) are so well drilled.

I laughed at the time, but he's faintly ridiculous. The markets mean way less than the weather, especially w/out any kind of context about why the Dow went down or the pound went up that day.

yeah exactly...if anything drastic has occured in the markets, it will be covered in the news, if not then it's a virtually inconsequential metric to all but ppl working for pension funds or w/e (who would already know it)

tho it fits w/ paxman's shtick, the appearance of temporal seriousness, the world of great measures that he considers himself to reflect upon and by proxy inhabit, whereas the weather forecast reminds him of his provenance on regional news

(Townshend is being interviewed by Paxman, in case anyone is wondering about the relevance to this thread)

Les centimètres énigmatiques (snoball), Monday, 11 October 2010 21:07 (eleven years ago) link

(there's a tiny bit at the beginning where Paxo just about manages to corner PT re: hotel trashing, but Townshend is far too good an interviewee, although the footage is chopped up for 'The Kids Are Alright' docu)

It's April, what do you expect?

April is pretty unpredictable Paxo, it's hardly December or August or something.

Master of Treacle, Monday, 19 September 2011 23:26 (eleven years ago) link

was sure that this revive would be about Paxman's hair on university challenge

soref, Monday, 25 July 2016 22:21 (six years ago) link

lol

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Monday, 25 July 2016 22:38 (six years ago) link

was it like that last week? this was the first episode I've seen this series. he looks like Russell Harty

soref, Monday, 25 July 2016 22:42 (six years ago) link

didn't see but he was similarly great a couple months ago. relaxed, funny, hard to impress. very little wasted energy.

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Monday, 25 July 2016 22:53 (six years ago) link

that said there is also a welcome bit of stephen toast in him

though which bit i'm not at liberty to say

Just turned off Paxman's Victorians documentary because he's unbearable.

every day there's a whining choad (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 22 September 2018 18:58 (four years ago) link

nakh was always already correct on this thread: paxman bad not good and ditto everyone stanning for him (i don't make the rules)

mark s, Saturday, 22 September 2018 19:03 (four years ago) link

I'm too feeble atm to enumerate the ways in which he's terrible but as a documentarian he's insufferable.

every day there's a whining choad (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 22 September 2018 19:11 (four years ago) link

he cried on "who do you think you are" which was quite sweet: re the (genuine) dismal suffering of an ancestor

this is the only leeway i will allow tho

mark s, Saturday, 22 September 2018 19:16 (four years ago) link

three years pass...

Victoria Derbyshire anchoring, a TUC economist in the studio, the first 20 minutes and counting dedicated to the cost of living crisis. Newsnight is good again?
