I'm late to this but Gogglebox was good fun. So much so I missed Modern Life is Goodish with Dave Gorman.

Oooo what side is that on? I rather like Mr G.

Dave, although I think last nights episode was the last in the series (which was very good)

Last in the series, but repeated tonight at 10;40pm. Not the best programme of the series, but still fun.

Thanks, but sadly I'm going to miss it. Tour commitments.

Currently watching the rolling "news" on WJXX.

If I didn't know it was real I'd swear that it was a spoof.

watched the first episode of 'The Missing'. Quality cast-yes yes I know James Nesbitt's in it, but give him a chance.

There is much more to this than the standard kid get's kidnapped drama. The story is very well structured with meaningful uses of flashbacks, and lots of questions beside what happened to the child.

Enjoying Guy Martin's Speed, Guy Martins Speed.  His Spitfire programme was good too, good too.

Enjoying Gotham

 

Yeah, hope it can keep up the standard. They have obviously taken the look from the Arkham series of video games and I like seeing the bad guys 15 years prior to the comic book with little (or sometimes not so little) nods to their future selves. The Penguin and Poison Ivy were well done.

Dunno if anyone else has posted on this, but absolutely loving 'Detectorists' on BBC4.

 

 

Best thing on TV this year by a country mile.

I missed episode 2 and have switched over a bit late for a couple of others, but what I've seen has been very good.

It produces the odd chuckle, but that's as far as it goes.

Well, it's a downbeat thing, not a red-nosed, trouser-dropping slapstick.

Not Going Out was a bit of an eye opener last night.

Catching up with a bit of TV -

 

Marvellous - Best programme of the year.  Should win countless awards. 

 

Finally caught up with it on my planner. Fantastic feel good true story and great performance by Toby Jones. Lou Macari comes out of it very well indeed.

Yes, I get that. My point was more about the small number of chuckles produced than the intensity of the amusement. It's harmless enough.

Yes. It's very good. The Simon and Garfunkel thing is good.

For those of us fortunate enough to live in the right part of Yorkshire, a new TV channel "Made in Leeds" launches on Thursday night - Freeview Ch8, Virgin Ch159 & Sky Ch117. Apparently, there's an hour long Rugby League chat show on launch night!

Have they prepared effigies of the Sutton brothers to burn?

I think a bronze cast of Ryan Hall's little finger with instructions of what to do with it is been made to be sent to the Suttons on launch night.

Speed with Guy Martin was good again, good again.

 

Great Storyville on BBC4 about the Amazing Randi - An Honest Liar.

What could possibly go wrong?

 

I believe the studio is the old Leeds Trades Club, I saw many a good show there, so hopefully that's a good omen.

I caught up with this during a lengthy journey yesterday (I'm on tour, with my band).  I'd never heard of him, but what a brilliant man!  Regrettably it reminded me just how much I'd like to put my foot through Uri Gellar's face, which made me feel rather dirty.
