BLOGATHON… The Final Fling with Those “Scottish” Laddies and Lassies

It’s time for Auld Lang Syne…

 

It has been a fandabidozi three days with some film and TV Scots.

 

 

The title above will have the Scots in my readers reaching for the whisky. Twice. To explain, firstly Auld Lang Syne is a song that is often (drunkenly) sang by Scots of all shapes and sizes at New Year and it’s roughly translated that we’ll meet again. Which I hope we will, and not just for a blogathon.

Fandabidozi is a word invented by Scotland’s most infamous export The Krankies (correct me if I am wrong) and is an expression of enthusiasm. And if you don’t know who The Krankies are, you weren’t brought up in 1970s Britain and therefore Children’s TV, Crackerjack (1955-2021) with Stu “ooh I could crush a grape” Francis. Or you haven’t been to a Scottish panto… But either way, you haven’t missed out,  so I’ll let you check this er… Scottish “comedy” act of a husband and his diminutive wife dressed up as a schoolboy from the usual sources.

Anyway, before today’s lovely lot of entries, I’m going to do a wee wrap up as this is the blogathon’s final official post. There are still more than a few latecomers, so watch this space and come back tomorrow for updates… as latecomers will be added to this one.

If you are one of these latecomers please tell me asap so as I can look out for your post, if I don’t hear from you then I’ll just assume something more important has got your attention, which is ok with me as blogathons should always take place to real life…

I’d like to thank those of you who have added entries so far with “Scots” of all sorts. The Scottish accents have been good and bad, but they certainly haven’t hampered your enjoyment of these movies and television. And thanks for drawing my attention to these delights with your fabulous reviews, as they’ll be my new go to homesickness remedy.

This blogathon won’t be returning next year. Simply because my rascal of a husband keeps coming up with some fabulous topics, that I guarantee will have every blogger reaching for IMDb. In the meantime – with a wee shameless plug – there’s still time to join the Hammer and Amicus blogathon HERE. I’ve also got two more joint blogathons for December and January in the planning stages so keep your eyes peeled for those announcements… now on with the show…
