New series of Upstart Crow tonight.

Cheers for this: wanted to post an update myself, but it was difficult from my mobile.

 

Enjoyed the first episode of the new series - especially a particularly sweet Ann-and-Will postscript that has always been my favourite part of the show.

Still regard this as Ben Elton's best work in many years.

A lot of new shows starting, but "The Imitation Game" is already hot favourite for my "find of the week".

TBH, the format's just a weak excuse for a lot of top-class impressions from Rory Bremner and his mates, but some of it was truly inspired. Christopher Biggins only coming second to Luke Kempner in a "Blind Date with Christopher Biggins" contest was very funny, but the best moment had to be Jess Robinson's uncanny take on Julie Andrews singing "Single Ladies".

Meant to post this a lot earlier - sorry... 

 

Heads-up: new series of "No Offence" starting NOW on C4.

 

I saw the adverts Eugene ....but not sure it’s my thing ....I presume it’s a sort of comedy polic thing ?

* Warning - Spoilers ahead for those who’ve not seen it yet.*

 

It’s about a Manchester police squad, and is by Paul Abbott, who wrote “Shameless”.

I mentioned it because other FMs have watched it before, but I wouldn’t expect you to join it “raw”!

 

*SPOILER*

Was gutted by first episode, as Abbott killed-off my favourite character in the first 15 minutes!

The ********** were brilliant 

Spoiler Baz - just in case Eugene has not seen and reads this thread. 

But I agree they were.   

 

Sorry ...I’ll delete 

Just "*" it like I did.  

 

I'm trying my hand at Uni Challenge now. 

I have had enough of finding out how thick I am , so I’ve switched to panorama

I saw that EC ....but it clashes with Gogglebox 

This programme trumps Gogglebox tonight. I think GB is a celebrity one, so I'm less bothered. 

 

Loving how they are going back in time to tell the story.

 

I might watch it on catch up at some point 

Heads-up:

"Inside No 9" are doing a live special on BBC2 at 10pm, Sunday.

It's only 30 minutes long, and as BB doesn't start till 10.30pm that night, it doesn't clash! 

 

Called "Dead Line", it's written for Halloween and was meant to be shown on the day itself, but BBC2 scheduling has moved it back to Sunday.

I fell asleep in the last episode of the John Simm thing (I can’t even remember what it was called ... it was that exciting). I suppose, having invested so much time, I will have to try again on catchup 🙄

Stranger? I gave up after a couple of episodes.
