Remarkably popular with the British unemployed, it seemsIf you experienced any temporal weirdness this afternoon, sorry about that. I seem to have created a rift in the space-time continuum. I had just finished watching Buffy (yeah, another hard day for the unemployed bum) and I switched over to BBC1 to see what the latest war news was. Instead I found myself staring at the insipid faces of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, all tween-ified up and starring in their very own ‘Saved by the Bell’ knockoff. Horrified, I flailed wildly at the remote and managed to change it to ITV… where I was confronted with Mary-Kate and Ashley age seven! What are the freakin’ odds that they’d be on two channels at the same time? Two British channels at that? I guess the BBC has woken up to the fact that those of us at home during the day aren’t exactly a lucrative demographic and they needn’t go to the expense of putting on anything more entertaining than… *shudder*… the Olsen twins.

  1. Aw, Howie- give ’em a year or two and you won’t be able to see them anywhere but cable… that is, on the SPICE channel.

  2. Mary Kate and Ashley have been performing since they were six months old. They are the richest teenagers in The US and have worked hard to be where they are. Controversial as it may be at least they work!
