Did anyone watch 'Last chance lawyer' on BBC?

I haven't been watching but happened to turn it on last night near the end. It seems to be about a rather eccentric New York lawyer and the cases he is working on. Anyway I switched it on just as he was being interviewed while shaving, when I say shaving what I really mean is hacking away at his dry face with a Gilette cart. I was cringing just watching it. Cut (see what I did there?) to the last frame in the scene of a blood stained roll of paper towel next to his sink.:p

The 'shave' is around 32 minutes if you want to watch/avoid.

Not to do with Last Chance Lawyer, but sort of connected so please bear with me...

In a previous life, I used to work for the MoD, embedded into various TA regiments. I usually had to accompany them on their various annual camps, which was pretty much a nice little earner, as I was supposedly on duty 24/7 so used to get paid 16 hrs overtime a day for a fortnight... and I can't ever remember even working my usual 8hrs! Plus there was free food and usually, massively subsidised booze in the mess...

Anyway one year the regiment I was with at the time went to a place called Knook Camp near Salisbury Plain. This place is an utter shithole, just horrible, like Stalag Luft V or something, and to make matters worse we were sharing the camp with a Para regiment so there was no room left in the Officers Mess, where my civil service rank would normally entitle me to live, so I bunked in with the SNCOs.

So, one morning I toddled down to the ablutions block, which was equipped with cold and cold running water and started to shave with my Fusion or whatever it was and tin of expensive gel. I was not enjoying the process.

As I'm starting to shave, in walks a Para. I could tell he was a Para by the massive regimental badge tattooed across his impressive chest. This guys torso was almost triangular, massively wide shoulders tapered via huge pecs and a six pack to an improbably narrow waist. I said something like "Sorry mate there's no hot water, it's bloody freezing..." he just sort of grunted, pulled out what looked like an ancient Bic disposable from his combat trousers and proceeded to scrape away, dry. The noise was horrendous like his face was made of sandpaper. I didn't half feel like a great big softy!

Ha hmmm. I have dry shaved a few times using the Ikon SB and actually quite successful. You do need a new blade though for max comfort. However as dry as you may go you do need copious quantities of water to calm your face down afterwards and a balm or moisturiser goes a long way. Can't say it will be as smooth as babies bottoms or to that matter of fact my bottom either. But does it get you out the bathroom quick or what.

Does that make me as hard as nails?

We watched this here last night, and spotted the shaving scene. My god, this man's a genius and a total role model aside from that though.
