Billy Weir: Gordon, Gino and Fred? It’s a Greek tragedy
On Murder Island, amateur detectives scratched their heads and searched for clues as to who was responsible for killing the protagonist.
worm in Greece there would be no such mystery, in Cluedo terms it would be Gordon, with the bottle of ouzo, as Fred helped him wrap Gino in a concrete panna cotta for a trip to the bottom of the Mediterranean.
And there would be no court in the country to condemn them as Gino would have made Nana Mouskouri swear.
The second and final part of Gordon, Gino and Fred become Greek seen MM. Ramsay, D’Acampo and Sirieix (maybe there should be another ‘e’) get back to their usual laddish antics, the kickoff, as is the law in all shows based in this part of the world, with an excerpt from Zorba’s dance.
Angry Gordon (is there another?)
But not right now. With the amigos in the van, Gino was asked what he first thought about when Greece was mentioned and “John Travolta and Olivia Newton John” was an answer, but not the one Gordon wanted.
No, it was the Olympics and first a little run around the original track, a chance to have some fun and frolic on testosterone and for Gordon to show his chest.
Gino’s shorts showed something else, but we’ll ignore it as Fred upset the odds of defeating Gordon, which wasn’t a shame as it’s clearly in the genes, the Frenchman’s daughter competing in the Tokyo Games. while Gordon’s offspring, Tilly, was fourth. in Strictly Last week.
So we had ticked off a few stereotypes, and now for a kebab, where Gordon and Gino teamed up to take on two of Athens’ best, one of them went out of his way to get one of them to revel. to call Gino “Pizzaboy”.
It was top honors even there and then we headed to the third best bar in the world called Clumsies where the specialty is a Greek salad cocktail.
I can now reveal that I am opening a bar called Hallions where the mixologist’s specialty will be a vegetable roll and a champion cocktail.
It’s always dangerous to let Gino run free in a bar and while Fred was busy creating upstairs, downstairs, Gino was wreaking havoc, dancing on the bar and that kind of behavior will not be tolerated in Hallions.
After all this hedonism, it was time to seek help from a higher power, and the three brothers were heading to a mountain to meet three sisters – in a monastery.
As they moved nervously in their cassocks, the nuns not the awkward ones that is to say, we were confronted with a scene that Fred, the wonderful butler of First meetings, could never have imagined, but luckily Gino had an inappropriate nun joke to break the ice.
A little picking honey, sniffing truffles, a little cooking and another drink and that’s it. It felt like a show that was a light or two too many depending on your point of view, but unlike the poor victim on Murder Island they will have another series.
Or so we thought like Charly Hendricks, eco-warrior, VW camper van driver and as we found out, all things to all men, women and anything that can roam around the idyllic Scottish island where she met its creator.
It turns out that, despite being dead, she continues to tell the story and usefully tells us a story as the four pairs of unlucky detectives clearly drawn from a lucky sack do their best to destroy crime scenes and harangue. witnesses.
The choice of the group is Dot and Rox who should be on a couch on Gogglebox, not trying to win £ 50,000 by solving the criminal story set by Ian Rankin.
Contrary to what poor Charly harpooned, these aren’t the sharpest tools in the box, but being Channel Four, they’ll likely win either miraculously or, in a neat twist, be killed by an angry mob of actors and real detectives.
We also have two chic brothers-in-law, a man in a neat hat, and Miss Marple and Jessica Fletcher who didn’t read the fine print in the Saga Murder Frenzy vacation they booked.
At this point, everyone on the island and several people who are not there are in the frame.
I can’t wait for things to change next week as three men in a motorhome arrive on the island, like Gordon, Gino and Fred Go Murdering.
