You Gave Me The Answer – TV Special
Longer nights and colder days become the perfect excuse to stay in and curl up in front of the telly. Whilst we continuously scroll through the catalogue of our favourite streaming service and remind our TV that “Yes, we are still watching”, we started to wonder does Paul ever have time in his busy schedule to sit down and marathon his favourite series? And does he have any recommendations of things to watch?
Paul: I’ll tell you what. I never really have that much time, because I do stuff. You know, I'm either touring, rehearsing and, at the moment, writing a musical. So, that is my excuse for the fact there are millions of series that I haven't caught up on. Nancy has seen them all, she’s so ahead of it. It’s ridiculous, I've only just finished 'The Sopranos', which I feel like everyone saw 10 years ago. Now, I'm watching 'Boardwalk Empire'. Martin Scorsese directed the first episode, so it’s very good. But again, it's something people watched years ago, but it's very good so that's my current thing. I've been watching Veep as well, which I loved.
PaulMcCartney.com: We love that show! It won an Emmy for 'Outstanding Comedy' a few years ago...?
Paul: Yeah, it’s very good!
PMc.com: And speaking of comedy, while we have you; who or what makes you laugh the most?
Paul: I think Jerry Seinfeld’s 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ is a very funny series. Have you ever seen it?
PMc.com: [Guiltily] We haven’t!
Paul: It's really good. He goes round in a car with a comedian and they just talk. But they're very funny. He's very funny, very perceptive.
PMc.com: Is it a bit like the Carpool Karaoke format?
Paul: Yeah, yeah - it's that same kind of thing ...and I wonder which came first, the chicken or the egg?! It’s just very good, he is very funny. So that's my current laugh, at the moment!
