As you can see, I was trying to be the next Antoine de Caunes/Barry Norman, but with an Irish accent (a winning combo in anyone's eyes, surely? I should SO be on Film 2011). Yes, okay, laugh it up. I may inflict you with other reviews if you don't behave yourselves.

Me on TV!
If you'd like a good laugh at my expense, then here's a clip from RTE's Jo-Maxi (kinda like Ireland's version of Blue Peter), circa 1992, when I was their regular fillum reviewer for about three months. This was my third review for them, I think, so I'm still a bit r̶u̶b̶b̶i̶s̶h̶ nervous. I'm very thin, my ears are maHOOOOsive, my hair is unkempt (hey, I had just turned 21, I was TRENDY), and my accent is stronger than it is now. I also had the Best Catchphrase of the Year. Oh, the review is for Jim Sheridan's Into The West.
