IDOL THREATS: The return of Pop Idol is being trailed heavily right now on ITV. The set-up is that there'll be something singing - one of those yammering fishes, or a tortoise with the voice of Vic Reeves. Then, there is an explosion, or a wall knocked down, and the camera pulls back to reveal Simon Cowell. The voiceover is something along the lines of "some say he's a bit too harsh" or something like that. So, at least they're being honest this time: the show isn't a chance to see talented young persons embarking on a journey to fame and fortune; it's a chance to see a rich, badly dressed boor being stamping on the dreams of kids forever.
