Sky Arts' 2019 Landscape Artist of the Year starts next week. Gives viewers a valuable opportunity to shout at the telly and one of the judges is really good looking.

In our house we try to guess which gimmick the "experts" will justify putting in the next round.

Caught it for the first time tonight.  Really enjoyed it.  


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!

I watched that thing Nick Knowles presents where they do up a property for a deserving family tonight.

It restored my faith in human nature. Good people, doing good things, for other good people, for no reward.

Not many TV shows you can say that about.

Unfortunately it was followed on BBC One by a fly-on-the-wall programme following the work of the Met Police, and they were investigating the senseless, brutal murder of a young Albanian man in London by a gang of scumbags outside a pub.

I could've done without this kind of 'balance' to my evening's viewing. 😕

I am upto ep2, but I will watch the rest on BBC2.

For those who read the book, The Name of the Rose, is also much better than the awful film. A 14th c murder mystery set within a monastery

Tonight on Channel 5, Caravanning with Shane Ritchie.

Was this actually one of the ideas Alan Partridge pitched to Tony Hayers? With C5, you're never really sure.

Just watched a Sky Arts tribute show about Jule Christie. Looked up her Wikipedia page and she's 79!

God, I can still vividly remember when Waterloo Sunset came out. Still, for me, one of the best songs ever written.

Watched Guilt last night on BBC2 . The critics seem to like it , but to me it was neither a drama , a "dark" comedy which it is described as , but more of a Brian Rix farce (one for our older readers there ) , lurching from one implausible scene to another .A few good comedy moments  , but wont be tuning in for the other 3 episodes .

I have noticed C5's catch up player has gone from my TV, and as a lot of breaks on C5 just seem to be trailers for future shows, is everything financially stable at C5?

She was a goddess as Lara in Zhivago. Just having a listen to Lara's theme now.

Anyone watched Swamp Thing on amazon prime? It is a DC show.

Started it last week and have gottenthrough about 7 episodes (10 in the first season) - I am still not sure exactly how to make it.I am quite enjoying it though, has a few themes that aren't regularly explored in some other shows which I am enjoying.

I do love the swamp aesthetic of the show, the dark, vibrant at other times is great.

I have just watched episode of "Guilt" (BBC2 from Wednesday night now on catch up). It was cringe making funny. 

Well worth a catch up.

There is a rumour that Taskmaster is moving from Dave to Channel 4. So would possibly mean Jimmy Carr and Tom Allen will be on the next series as they seem to have to be on every programme that Channel 4 do. Carr has his moments but I just do not find Allen funny whatsoever.

no reward apart from national tv exposure for their services and businesses and 15 mins of fame, I wonder how many of them would do it otherwise? similar to the rowan Atkinson "songs of praise" vicar sketch.

Tom Allen could be good on a programme about how to buy a rather well-cut suit. but as a comedian, all he has is self-satisfaction and the very occasional decent one-liner.

In the commercial break on Channel 4 at 10.45 tonight I saw an Asda and a PC World Christmas Advert.

For#### Sake people, it's only just November
