^ I watched it on Sunday. So bad that I just couldn't take my eyes off it. Closest I'll get to knowing what it's like to drop acid.

I've seen both episodes now, I love it! It's probably better to see it on catch-up when you can speed through the nonsense - it's ridiculous that they stretch the episodes out to 90 minutes. I also hate the judges making stupid guesses - I know that's part of the "fun", but they're still annoying.

The only ones I'm certain of are Steve Pemberton as the hedgehog and John Barrowman as the unicorn (100% on both). I think it could be Kelis as the flower and CeeLe Green as the monster, no idea about the others though.

Yes, I'll definitely be watching it on catch up from now on, it really is dragged out beyond belief!

Steve Pemberton as The Fox though? Hmmm, I was sure The Fox was a chick. Now you've got me thinking.

Yeah, good>meh>ugly seems to be a popular opinion. And that the writers frequently balls up.

'My Feet Are Killing Me'

It's basically Dr Pimple Popper but with feet. It's absolutely disgusting (and brilliant).

I wasn't expecting to, but I'm enjoying the second series of You even more than the first. You have to suspend your disbelief a whole load and it's all ridiculously over the top, but it's smartly scripted and great fun!

I've only seen the first three episodes of the new season, but it seems basically identical to the first season so far. I'm enjoying it a lot and it seems funnier than the first one, but if it just repeats the whole story again I'm going to be quite disappointed. I've heard from several people who've watched the whole thing that it starts to get bad around episode seven but I don't know what that means yet.

Saw the first two episodes of AJ and the Queen last night on Netflix. It's... okay. Better than I assumed it would be due to Ru's usually terrible quality control. It's basically the kind of cheesy sentimental nonsense he enjoys spouting tied together with a road trip/buddy film plot.

I've finished AJ and the Queen now. It was pretty good overall. I loved all the cameos. It might have made a better film instead of ten episode though, or at least the episodes would have been improved by being cut down from 48 minutes each to 30 minutes. A lot of scenes seemed to drag (lol) on for no reason.

Watched the pilot episode of Good Omens. Was pretty good. Probably won't watch the whole series though.

'Don't Scream' - a pilot on BBC3. I liked it, mostly. It was clearly copied off that ITV show where people get scared by things in a forest and then run away from some dogs (can't remember what it's called). A team of three had to do various tasks in a dilapidated shopping centre with random scary things happening now and then. They start with £5000 and every time one of them screams they lose £100.

The worst part was that there was some annoying man, you wouldn't even consider him to be the presenter really, just sort of watching it all unfold on some screens and reacting to the people being scared. It was basically like one of those dumb YouTube reaction videos - actually, I suppose they were trying to attract a younger audience by using that format. There was nothing to gain by including a man saying things like "Wow, what a scream!" and "Uh oh, they just lost some more money!"

The new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm has started.

I thought the last season was average to poor, but the new episode was pretty, pretty good Hopefully it continues that way this time.

This is on tonight:

Losing It: Our Mental Health Emergency / 10pm, Channel 4
A greater openness towards discussions about mental health has also seen a sharp rise in demand for treatment; it is now one of the biggest crises facing the NHS. This series follows Nottinghamshire NHS Trust as they try to cope with demand, opening on the desperately sad story of new mum Laura, who tried to kill her newborn as a result of postpartum psychosis, as well as 11-year-old Briena, whose panic attacks are causing her to have full-body seizures.

my girlfriend has got me watching this with her,
can't help but find it all very crap / annoying / insult to adult intelligence,.. and watchable too,. how odd is that?

I quite like the singing, but the rest is just total nonsense, I think it must be aimed at pre-teens or something,

….aside from who is who behind the mask, I keep thinking that the compere has been playing Bungle from Rainbow before he started doing this show
- he has the same voice anyway.

I did hear that the Fox is possibly Denise Van Outen.

I sit and wonder if I am actually watching this tosh, then usually catch myself giving detailed commentary on something,.. lol

I agree Fox is her. I'm not sure about Unicorn though - I think it might be the guy from Scissor Sisters now. Queen Bee is definitely Nicola Roberts.

I don't know why people keep needing to add the caveat of knowing that it's trashy and being ashamed of watching it Who cares? Stuff like that now and then is part of a healthy TV diet. It's not like it's exploiting anyone like those singing competition shows or those shows that people think will be a vehicle to a no-skill career. It's just a fun guessing game.

Who's Duck? Skin from Skunk Anansie?

I stopped paying attention to her when it seemed like it was a sports person since I wouldn't have any clue who it was.
