Couch Potato Pickings

On ITV4 tonight at 10.30pm

tonight’s movie. It’s not the best-known film, but it’s definitely one of the best quoted. See here for the extensive list.

If you don’t know, the film is about four city men who decide to spend a weekend canoeing in the Appalachians. Their holiday turns into an ordeal, however, when they are set upon by backwoods hillbillies. Abandoning moral qualms, the men begin to fight for survival.

If you are one of the many people who hasn’t yet seen Deliverance and you find certain references go totally over your head, then now’s your chance to make your appreciation of popular culture so much richer.
