Bonekickers was truly dire, even if it DID have Julie Graham....

Well I really tried to like it and watched all four episodes so far. But I just found myself picking holes in it and won't bother with the rest.

Or, perhaps, because of Julie Graham. :wink:

The Times in 2008 described Graham as "the small screen's resident raver, a one-woman festival of naturism"

you mean she ACTS as well? ..... :oops: well, I like her.....

There are many on the BBC Messageboards (Bonekickers thread) that would strongly disagree that she can act! :lol:

I thought she was OK in William & Mary.

I liked "William and Mary", too. The "Survivors" remake wasn't bad, either.

As for "Bonekickers", I'd agree with the comment I've seen in various places that the script was beyond saving. I really can't believe that the words "drama" and "team of archaeologists" belong on the same page.. as for "Indiana Jones meets CSI", what can you say....


anyway, someone in the Beeb commissioning office likes her.

"Don't mess with me. I'm an archiologist".

Hmmmm. Great dialogue. :lol:

I've never actually seen it. :roll: I set the recorder for the whole series (as it sounded like my kinda thang), but the next day, when I went onto the BBC thread, it was amazingly negative.

I did, however, read the thread every week, as it was sooo funny.

I'm waiting for the DVDs to come down to "free with the Daily Mail" then I'll watch it!
