Charlie Brooker on Room 101 next Friday. Feels like an ideal format for him.

Does he get to punch Paul Merton in the face?

I can only apologise for my out of date knowledge of shitty BBC2 shows.

I've never been taken by the newish format. The one-on-one interviews and arguments with Paul Merton and his predecessor-whose-name-escapes-me could sometimes make for captivating television. With three people in a half hour show you just don't get the depth, and just annoyance if the weak guest is getting the limelight.

Yep. Lee Hurst is a special kind of alt-right tosspot now on Twitter you will be pleased to hear.

It was. I'm in awe of the genius like minds that can come up with a programme like this and execute it so well in a half hour show.

It's still a valid question.

Inside No. 9 is some of the best TV ever. Some utterly heart wrenching and gut punching stories and no duds across 4 seasons so far.

Recommended 100%

Recently, I've been watching Hard Sun via the iplayer and it's brilliant.

The end of the world is coming but it's being handled in a different manner to how you'd expect. Highly recommended so far.

Was intrigued by this, but it got lousy reviews for the first episode.

We're watching McMafia, which is really terrible in a can't stop watching it kind of way.

Re McMafia :this: You can pretty much predict what's gonna happen all the time, but I found it surprising how quickly James Norton's character found himself knowingly laundering bad men's money.

I may have to give Hard Sun a look, but I generally find 'end of the world' scenarios very depressing.

I saw Pt2 of 'House of Saud: A Family At War' t'other night, having missed Pt1. It's a bit like McMafia ... no, it's not ......well, maybe, because a lot of dodgy money is being passed around. The money that the Saudi Royal family have been 'earning' as 'commissions' is unbefucking believable, and a hooge percentage of it comes from the British Tax Payer because The Government want to earn billions and provide lots of jobs for Brits from arms sales. I knew it was going on, but the scale of it really was breathtaking. I think part 1 is a must on iPlayer tonight.

Very much recommended viewing, particularly if you want to see successive prime ministers visibly uneasy when signing enormous contracts amid much media coverage, because they knew perfectly well how much was being skimmed off in bribes, but seemed powerless to stop it.
