I was surprised to learn that ST:TNG is older than Red Dwarf.

In this country Red Dwarf aired first, but in my head they were around a decade apart.

Bridgerton is good. Well shot, very colorful, well written enough, and everyone is beautiful. There's lots of stuff about getting married and things like that, and all super good.

The only thing slightly problematic with Bridgerton was the absolutely predictable plot, but it was still excellent Christmas binge watching material.

We’ve been bingeing Greg Davies ‘Man Down’ since the Christmas break. Piss funny at times, some great cameos and insane situations. Recommend you give it a try if your stuck for something to watch.

Huh, same. That bit with the housekeeper was superb.

I also liked The Dutchess, but if you're one of those people that doesn't like Katherine Ryan then you'll probably struggle :)

Ah, well reminded, I've been meaning to check out the Dutchess.

I'm a big fan of Katherine Ryan, doubly so after that horrible business with Slowthai (feels like last year, but guess it probably wasn't).

Indeed. And many other bits too.

We've just finished the first series of Ghosts with the kids. It's been an absolute joy. Nine-year-old laughs like a drain at most of it, 4-year-old laughs at the slapstick.

Genuinely funny characters, who each bring something very different to the absurd setup. The politician trying to manipulate objects with his mind never stops being funny.

And myself and Mrs Fop have found it very funny indeed. A few risque bits in terms of sex, but it's never explicitly referenced e.g. a filmstar is frequently referred to as a free pass. Certainly I think we managed to finish the series without needing to have The Talk with Mini Fop the elder.

Would highly recommend, and looking forward to cracking on with S2.

Just watched the first episode of series 2 of "Drag Race UK" and I've only just worked out what "tuck/untuck" refers to.

Oh, and

In regards to your spoiler, I absolutely agree!

Did you watch the first series of Drag Race UK? Or any of the US episodes?

I've only seen the first UK one and the Canadian one. The whole phenomenon had passed me by until a weekly Zoom quiz I used to do had a Ru Paul round one evening. Out of curiosity I put the first BBC episode on afterwards and had not experienced such a burst of colour and energy since Dorothy took that flight out of Kansas. Yet to see a US version.

I didn’t enjoy the Canadian series too much, but the UK and US series are both good, yet really different. The US queens are so much more polished than the U.K. ones, but the U.K. queens are so much funnier and generally more engaging.

The dancer in the new series is stunningly beautiful both before and after getting into drag.

Very much all of :this:

Can't wait for S3 later this year.

There's a third series? Excellent. Really good news, a properly lovely show.

I used to sort-of know Sum Ting Wong from the first UK series ( we went to the same fencing club for a while ). He could drink most people under the table and did amazing halloween costumes.

Haha, brilliant! Was he doing drag at the time, do you know?

Edit: to clarify... I don’t mean was he sword fighting and boozing in a dress. Was he doing drag performances in the period you knew him?

Yep! This must have been 6 or 7 at years back at least and i think he was just starting out! He still had a "day job" but was performing quite often. I am certain he was boozing in a dress, but maybe not swordfighting at the same time! ( although entirely possible )

BBC 4: Lucy Worsley's Royal Palace Secrets
An easy watch, with some glimpses of rooms not normally open to the public. The sight of Lucy Worsley dressed as a bishop gleefully running around the Tower of London is what we need right now.
