Moonlighting

The Times TV correspondent was doing his ironing watching The Apprentice. An interesting insight into who does TV reviewing these days. Young kids earning extra dosh at uni? I’ve often wondered how sanity survives in the reviewer’s job, and I can now see that moonlighting doing the ironing, or doing the ironing and moonlighting watching TV, is how they do it. With so much stuff sent out in advance by the TV companies, you can probably get by with half-watching. You can half-watch TV but dangerous to half-iron. Easy that way to become a decamisado, a shirtless one, whereas reviewing will always keep a shirt on your back… no matter what you turn out.
