I've been enjoying the second series of Crackanory on Dave.

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.

 

Mr Gellar was particuly smug and punchable.


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!

That is a little gem of a programme. The pleasures of simply being read a story. I like the weirdness of some of the stories, very Roald Dahl-esq.

Speed with Guy Martin was good again, good again.

 

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

James Randi does seem to shed a few supporters every now and then, when he abandons hard-nosed enquiry and resorts to grandstanding and bluster, but on the whole, he's a good thing.

They had me at "it's a shower of ######s at some #### arena".

 

I really enjoyed the stage version of one of my favourite sitcoms.

Jonny Wilkinson stars in Guinness' new Made of More advertising campaign, but beware, do not watch while eating as I just did while eating my tea when it cropped up in the middle of Guy Martin's Speed.  :bad:

Not a bad lineup for IACGMOOH. Not sure if I'll watch it and Packem has got a point. But then again it is good 'guilty pleasure' telly.

I've seen Tinchy Stryder and I'll never get that hour back. He was on stage with a single other chap who managed to shout "Keep it live!" every couple of minutes whilst playing pre-recorded backing tracks.

 

I sincerely hope that any kangaroo testicles that Tinchy's asked to eat won't have been washed or cooked first.

If Foggy's doing it, I may have to watch this.

Mainly cockneys and Lancastrians. The jungle's the best place for them.

It's a bit difficult to get Yorkies to leave their county.

Last episode of the missing. Should go well with a couple of pints of dalwinnie which will also dull the pain

Toast of London is oh so wrong.  It's great.


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!

The pacing of the dialogue is so clunky and plodding, it's like they're waiting for laughter that never arrives.

BBC4 - Blackfish

 

Sombre doco on SeaWorld.  What we do to these animals is horrible.
