    Shearsmith and Pemberton are geniuses, their next show Psychoville was almost as good.

    Yes, I watched that too. A friend of mine went to see the League of Gentlemen stageshow and met Gatis and Shearsmith afterwards, getting his photo taken with them. They were great guys he said.

    I've seen some of League of Gentlemen. The others I haven't delved into yet. The newest Britcom I really got into was Vicious, with Sirs Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi. Such a great show.

    Oh, and of course I absolutely loved The IT Crowd.

    Crazyhead and The Windsors (both made by Channel 4) couldn't be more different but equally hilarious to me. Hope you can track one or both of them down and let me know what you think...

    This can be from any Reality Tv Show that has the funniest show topics. Have fun with it. Haven't you ever just stop flipping and go who comes up with these things?



    I laugh when I hear Maury go "She's back for the 6th time. Are you the father of her twins?"

    Anyone watching this?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS-GB_(TV_series) - starring Sam Riley and Kate Bosworth.

    I decided to skip it as I've literarily just finished watching "The man in the high castle" and this is another show set in alternative reality where the Nazis won. Too similar for me right now.

    If anyone is watching it though, let me know if it's worth a look.

    Extremely British Muslims.

    Muslims looking for partners. The men are all westernised but still want a wife to cook and clean. One guy even wants his potential wife to stay in the other room when he has friends round. Interesting stuff.

    Timeless

    Episode 13 (they travel back to the 80's to stop his wife's killer's parents from ever meeting). I've struggled to get into a lot of these episodes due to the whole repetitive nature of them but this one was more fun. Maybe because they're deliberately trying to change something. Maybe because of all the 80's references.

    Ooh goodie! I have an episode to catch up on - I've grown quite fond of this in a sort of nostalgia for the early days of Stargate, sort of way...

    Tried the first few episodes of Emerald City...still not sure if it will get its act together before my interest wilts.

    First episode of Prime Suspect 1973: it's doing everything well enough by the book so far, except the book might turn out to be Life On Mars to its disadvantage

    I'm about to watch ARROW from last night. I just got caught up on the last few weeks' worth of THE FLASH and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. Then I have about five episodes of SUPERGIRL I need to get caught up on. It's hell being in a fandom.

    The only thing that works for me is having terrestrial channels only (so none of the shows you just mentioned) - thins out the herd of watchables.

    Other than the fish swimming around the aquarium at the moment.

    Thinking about watching Night of the Demons tonight. Watched Near Dark last night.

    Horror movies help me sleep at night at times.

    I just finished the first season of Taboo, it was very good.
    Now I'm watching ep. 88 of Critical Role.
