Recommended Posts

Where are all the scowling IO"s I keep reading about frogmaching every second tourists into interrogation rooms and then throwing them into filthy cells?

Is there something so very special about BKK immigration ??  I would guess most countries have similar problems.

Someone trying to paint a positive image of Immigration much in 2019? 😂😏🤭

 

"Bangkok Airport" series from BBC (2015)

 

Series 1 had 6 episodes.

 

There was no Series 2.

The series with Captain Jack was hilarious!  It was a few years ago. Anyone that can imagine a series which would paint any aspect of the Kingdom or the government in a negative way is dreaming. The participants could never return.

Yes. I have seen all episodes. But a re-view might still be fun :biggrin:

 

Just checked my disk.

I stored them in 2015. Episodes 1 to 6 but missing 5 for unknown reasons.

lyrics "Captain jack" . billy joel

 

Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
Tired of living in your one horse town
You'd like to find a little hole in the ground
For awhile
So you go to the village in your tie dyed jeans
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
It's like some pornographic magazine
And you smile
Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin'
Oh yeah
Your sister's gone out, she's on a date
You just sit at home and masturbate
Your phone is gonna ring soon
But you just can't wait
For that call
So you stand on the corner in your New English clothes
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
Ah but still your fingers gonna pick your nose
After all
