Boromir Swears !!!!!
28 January 2003 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

This is one of a select few British shows that have started on BBC television then switched to the commercial ITV channel . THIS IS YOUR LIFE , TILL DEATH US DO PART , THE BENNY HILL SHOW and QUATERMASS have all done this , though both THIS IS YOUR LIFE and TILL DEATH US DO PART did switch back to the BBC . Interesting trivia point there

Frank Skinner shows he`s a very witty guy in a chat show that`s great fun to watch . Frank starts by singing the " Fun loving Frankie " signature song then makes a few wisecracks about the week`s news and sometimes might chat to an audience member :

" You`re smartly dressed . Did you come straight from work ? "

" I don`t know about straight but I`ve just finished work "

The guests are always excellent and enjoy letting Skinner`s humour shine . One week world heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis was discussing his victory over Oliver McCall

" He called himself the atomic bull - and he was full of that " piped Skinner

But I reckon the best guest was Sean Bean . Bean is a very good actor but he`s even better as a chat show guest because he`s - well how can I put it kindly ? - not the sharpest card in the pack . He keeps having an attack of the giggles which leads me to think he`s the male equivalent of a bimbo . Bean was discussing his role as Boromir in THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING ( A role Bean played flawlessly in my opinion ) and in a blatant display of product placement Skinner started showing Bean some merchandise from the film: A Boromir doll which didn`t exactly resemble the character in the film , a Legolas Greenleaf doll that could fire an arrow , and some " Middle Earth ale " that Bean was invited to sample . So Bean was sipping away at the ale and asked :

" How much does this cost then ? "

" Ten quid a pint "

Bean gave a shocked look , took another sip of the ale then exclaimed " F****** ` ell "

Here`s hoping Boromir becomes a regular on chat shows . I`ll drink to that
