Just started watching Daredevil on Netflix. Not usually my bag (man) but loving it so far.

Just finished the set
I thought it was excellent, I'm looking forward to iron fist now

Eurovision wasn't even funny last night so watched the last couple of episodes of Car Share. I'll be honest, I did wonder if Peter Kay could still cut it but this has been class. His imaginary Cliff Richard Devil Woman act was immense.

A genuinely funny series and a touch of 'what happens next? '

The 'Forever FM' playlist:biggrin:

Demolition - The Wrecking Crew on BBC2 is turning out to be very watchable. The spirit of Fred Dibnah lives on.

I've enjoyed Car Share.  Lots going on in the background to, with shop names and the adverts on Forever FM.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

1945: The Savage Peace. Worth watching on iPlayer. Grim stuff, but fascinating.

I watched it last night. Like you say,a grim watch in places but very informative about a forgotten piece of history.

Me too - I thought Peter Kay had lost it but then I saw him do a bit of a cameo at, of all places, a gig by Difford and Tilbrook from Squeeze (he's a big fan) and he ad libbed with them and the audience and was very funny. So I gave Car Share a go and was pleasantly surprised. It was hardly ground breaking but it was funny and developed the characters beautifully. Like in Phoenix Nights, you have to like or at least believe in the characters for comedy to work.

He might well have hooked up with Difford & Tilbrook from them doing the music for a forthcoming comedy drama that Peter Kay is in, playing Danny Baker's dad. And I will watch at least one episode of that, good or bad, just to see what Peter's Sarf Lahndan accent is like. He is supposed to be a bit of a perfectionist - check out the little details of 'Car Share' like the throwaway comment from Forever FM. Or the poster seen at the roadside in one episode.

From the vaults, Kenny Everett's first television series Nice Time, co-presented by Germain Greer and Jonathan 'Candid Camera' Routh. Odd, but quite fun in its own way.
