We’re on Episode 7 of The Terror (BBC iPlayer), and we’ve been really enjoying it, but having seen The Crown it’s hard not to think of the Captain and commander as being George VI snd Prince Phillip. Also

We’ve just seen the ‘polar bear’ and I get that it’s not ‘exactly’ a polar bear, maybe something between one and a human, but what the heck? It looks like this team did the character modelling for it.

We watched Derry Girls over the past few weekends and it is brilliant!

Really funny. I'd highly recommend it.

Still watching it - might starting watching on Iplayer rather than wait for the weekly broadcast, although the current BBC2 idents are things of beauty. I awarded the production bonus nerd points for the bit where they showed how uncomfortable standing for a daguerreotype is in real time.

I think a lot of it was "live posted". Hang on.

It's true! The answer is "I met her on the train, but for all I knew she had a massive husband / wife / housemate. But IIRC he was pretty small".

We’ve just started taskmaster (starting at the most recent series and then working back a couple). I’ve enjoyed it as something light and mindless (though I really disliked the David Baddiel bits, where he just talked about his penis and wanted only to humiliate Little Alex Horne).

It's an excellent show and often the cause of belly laughs I also particularly like how clever the set dressing and editing is - a lot of thought has clearly gone into the presentation.

Sometimes you get an excellent combination of celebs, other times one or two aren't as good, but on the whole the range makes for varied approaches. I sometimes find myself warming to people I don't normally like - Johnny Vegas and James Acaster come to mind on this.

Oh, exactly that! There have been a couple of times I’ve laughed until I’m short of breath, and I’m exactly the same with people like Johnny Vegas who I’ve not particularly liked before show a different side.

Guardian: BBC Four to become archive channel as cost-cutting drive continues

:(

Disappointing, if unsurprising. Nothing wrong with bringing archival material back to the screens, of course, but part of BBC4's charm was the mix of art, history, science, and travel shows done with lesser-known hosts and often from slightly esoteric angles.

That utterly sucks balls. I wonder if they'll let Lucy Worlsey continue to make excellent docs.

Finished The Terror last night. Really enjoyed it and found the ending pretty satisfying.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Quite moving to see Crozier just outside the tent listening to people talk about him.

Wasn't quite expecting so many matelots getting eaten but that scene was well shot and edited, keeping the tension throughout.

The graphic cannibalism made me wince.
