Fauxde to the north

I intended to write this piece a couple of weeks ago, but I feared the sentiment could be lost what with all the violent shopping going on down in London.

Now though, now I feel like I can end Gradulthood’s semi-dry patch with a sideways glance and a moan about the city I hope will further my career, the city I’m moving to in less than a month, the big smoke - London.

A rambling warning

We've all had that feeling.  The series ends and you turn to... ah, there’s no one there to turn to.  Unfortunately, what you just watched was so good that it literally demands to be shared.  It must become a personal crusade to spread its message. You won’t rest until each one of your friends and family have not only watched it – they’ve thanked you for the opportunity of watching it.

I’ve always talked like this
However, whilst you’re out spreading the gospel - this usually involves: snapping up every half chance to quote the series, subtly altering your persona so it’s more in-line with your favourite character and buying some merchandise on eBay – resentment against the show will steadily start to build amongst those you’re trying to influence. 

The Graduate on Gradulthood - The sequal

Let's cut to the case, this is a sequel to last week's 'The Graduate on Graduate', so it blatantly isn't going to be as good as the first, because sequels never are. Or aren't they...?

The Dark Knight, Godfather II, Toy Story 2, remember them? All exceptions to the rule. Following last weeks successful posting of 'The Graduate', James is back in fine form, and interviewing himself again - I give to you, The Graduate: Part Deux: Lovelife.
