In general it was ok but Paddy’s northern lad bants was incredibly annoying.

Looks promising, though the Butcher doesn't quite ring true for me. Spice Girls was a nice touch.

Always found The Boys to be a touch too gross-out in its attempts to be shocking, but looking forward to checking it out.

I enjoyed the comic series and they definitely look to have put a good effort behind this, I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

Watching Years and Years, I was amused to see New Brighton pretending to be France with the Liverpool port docks in the background.

Wait until you rewatch Captain America The First Avenger. Brooklyn looks a hell of a lot like the area around Prince's Dock

When I worked in an office at Derby Square we used to see location filming for Hollyoaks almost every week. They used to get disrupted by this geezer who must have been in his sixties, roller skating around there at terrifying speed.

The end of Years and Years was a bit too much Soylent Green for my liking.

You can tell Phoebe Waller-Bridge didn't write any of Season 2s episodes of Killing Eve. Some great bits but not nearly as good as season 1.

The latest top gear was purile, shouty, laddish and unrefined... It was brilliant.

It's amusing to read pistonheads about it, people complaining they aren't reviewing any cars and they can't understand the northern accents :D

"Why haven't they reviewed the new Fiat Panda yet? We need to know how fuel efficient it is in extra urban driving" said no-one ever.

Top Gear hasn't been about car reviews since Tiff Needell left

I watched three episodes of Gentleman Jack last night and I’m not convinced. I don’t feel captivated by the main character, and though her arc may see her soften, in a lot of instances she’s nasty rather than strong.

The looks/confiding to camera and being called out on them were fine much more effectively in Fleabag. The sister is just too flatly annoying. There’s no nuance to character. Actually, that’s true of all the main characters.

Has anybody watched it all and does it get better?

We've watched them all to date. I think it's the first character that Suranne Jones has played that hasn't made me want to give her a big slap, which probably means she's a good actress. It's not one of the Beeb's best, but not the worst either. Not sure whether it gets better, but if it's even loosely based on real events, it's quite interesting.

It has been getting mixed reviews.

Mrs. W. and I watched episode one and I asked if she wanted to catch up with two last night and she said she wasn't bothered as it didn't seem as enthralling as the first series. I must admit, I did find the first episode a bit of a structureless mess so we didn't bother and watched London Kills instead and we weren't madly impressed with that either. Every time there was a scene in the police station offie, you could hear the same phone ringing and same police car siren in the background.

Oh, I think it’s based on a real memoir, and yes, I think the underlying story is excellent (I’ve seen four or five episodes now) but the acting isn’t the best and the production/direction is just awful.

Suranne Jones has a dedicated bit of really jarring music which means she’s walking, with purpose. Look, she’s walking, she’s walking with big forceful strides, look! She’s walking like a man. She’s a woman but like a man! Watch her walk like a man! Here ends her walking music! Then she’ll inevitably thump the table.

It were the last episode of series 8 of Taskmaster last night. It was GLORIOUS. Contains one of the best tasks they've ever done. Overall the series benefited from having Man From Thing With Greg Davies on it, as he out-charisma-vacuumed Mr Sinha. I ended up quite liking PS in the end, just because he looked like a lost Arthur Dent in every task.

I've not seen the last episode yet, but the task they did where they had to get to Alex on the bridge without him seeing them was amazing!

Jo Brand tho.

That was a great one too! My favourite is the edible masks one from the Champion of Champions series, I just skip the N*el Fi*lding bit.
