Episode 1758: Big Week For Sex Scenes, Murph And Mal’s Movie Club, You Are Tearing Me Apart Lisa
It’s movie day on the Second Captains World Service, and to get in the mood Eoin has decided to try and watch The Room, after Ken’s ceaseless badgering.
Luckily Murph and Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times have three brilliant movies to recommend on the latest edition of the Movie Club. First there’s Unforgivable Blackness – The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson, by Ken Burns. Then, it’s David O’Doherty’s favourite ever documentary “Deep Water”, before we discuss “I, Tonya”, the not-remotely-true retelling of the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan rivalry.
As well as that, Ken discusses the fall-out to “Normal People”, which got numerous liveline callers in a tizzy, and Ken points out the difference between ‘pornography’, and ‘a sex scene in a drama series’ for the uninitiated.
People on Liveline giving out about sex in Normal People. No mention about the bullying , self esteem issues or depression that the show highlights excellently. Why spark a conversation about those issues when you can complain about consensual sex? What a backward country.
