Happy Birthday, TGTRS

Today marks the day that we, TGTRS, turn the ripe old age of 8 years old. A lot has changed over the last 8 years, with new faces, new styles, new content and even a name change somewhere in there. We are, and continue to be, a force for honest opinions on just about anything, in a world filled with fake news and deep fakes and pay-for-review vendors.

So, on behalf of the team here at TGTRS, I just want to take this time to thank you for your visit, whether you’ve been with us since the start or have just found us for the first time today. Seeing those view stats rise help to make this all the more worthwhile, and without you, it just wouldn’t taste as sweet.

Oh, and stick around, kiddo’s, ‘cos we’re still here, we’re going from strength to strength, and I’d hate for you to blink and miss something truly awesome.

And heck, just in case you decide you need to see more of us, you can always find us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Check us out, like, follow and subscribe – it really does mean the world to us.

Cor, Blimey! (2000)

The Carry On (1958-1978,1992) films are considered perhaps one of the great British film franchises, but while the films themselves are dated, cliché, cheap, and largely eyerollingly unfunny, there are a series of much more compelling stories behind the scenes. Probably the most famous of these is the decade long affair between Carry On stars’ Barbara Windsor and Sid James. When I heard there was a film about this relationship, as well as touching on the torment of some of the other stars, I knew I had to check it out. Is it any good? Well, might as well find out.

The shape of water – 2018

So, yes… i kinda vanished…. again. Though this time i did it to everyone, not just you, if that helps…. I had some alone time, me time and i discovered that i hadn’t been happy. So i have this year immediately set about changing that, and just with a smile, a can do attitude and a social outlook, it’s been incredible just how full my life has become already! I have done more this last week than i did in an entire set of months last year and i feel so, so much better. So, once again, boomerang boy is back! Continue reading “The shape of water – 2018”

URL Change

Right then. We’ve been here, what, nearly 8 years now? With that in mind (following some serious thought), we’ve decided to change our URL a little bit, get it a bit closer to the truth. We’re no longer just That Guy reviewing stuff, haven’t been for a while, and TGTRS has been us for as long as anything else.

What I’m trying to say is, you can find us at:



That’s right, we’re a dot-co-dot-uk, baby! And this is just one of many changes we have in mind for this year. Watch this space, like this place, and most importantly, share us with your friends.

Happy Birthday, That Other Guy

What a lucky fella, eh? Christmas, New Years and then his birthday all in the space of about 10 days. Though I’m sure that probably means people cheap out on the presents. Bastards!

And despite the fact that we here at TGTRS are skint misers, we would like to wish That Other Guy a very happy birthday today. I believe it was Elton John that sang “my gift is my song, aaaaaand this one’s to you”. Well, we don’t do singing, it’s not our strength at all, but we do do writing, and on this – the most special of days for you – we commit these words.

Have a great day, buddy.

From the whole TGTRS team.
