    Did anyone catch the first episode of The Fear last night? Pretty bloody good I thought.
    Taped it. So clearly will never watch it :)
    Do watch it. It's very gripping. And brutal. And nice to see Brighton well used on TV.

    That episode of Imagine was brilliant. Jeanette Winterson is a genuinely interesting lady.

    Wasn't it just? I've really liked her since I saw Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit as a teenager. She's great, I had no idea about the suicide bit though. Glad that cat was there to save her.

    Started watching "Is our weather getting worse?" On Channel 4 but had to stop due to ridiculous unnecessarily intrusive "peril" soundtrack.

    We caught some of that. It was a truly awful programme.

    Documentary about 1980s rallying, primarily group B related is on BBC4 right now. Legendary stuff.

    Furniture ads, the TV is full of Furniture ads! Why does the fuckwit in he Oak furniture ad never actually put his feet on the coffee table, his feet are just wavering in mid air behind it. Then he gets a telling off from the Mrs and he makes like he's cleaning his scabby feet skin off the table.

    /pissed off with Furniture ads already.

    Just be happy that the season for poncy 'parfum' ads is now over for another year.

    There's a show on ITV right now with celebrities doing diving into pools with Tom Daley. It's basically rock bottom. Awful.

    That doesn't sound like a properly fleshed out segment on a show, let alone an entire programme.

    Congrats. You belly flopped for the nation.

    Its not often you can describe a tv show as a 'cunt' but this fits the bill.

    Something tells me this could easily end up as a cult 'so bad it's good' show, like Pineapple Dance Studios or Trucks and Trailers.

    Switch over to "Britain's Brightest". It's an embarrassment. So far:-

    - Stupid "pick the ages of the people" test
    - Awful "press the incorrectly spelled words with your arms like on a kinect" thing
    - Catchphsrae, only actually done worse than Catchphrase

    All interspersed with segments where they show us some "amazing" thing, like that age-old trick where if you see someone say a word as opposed to just hear it, it sounds different.

    Piss

    Ha, saw the end of the round where they had to guess people's ages. Riveting.

    BBC News were just trying to make a woman whose combined household income was over 100k seem like a victim as she'll be losing child benefit.

    Cry me a river.

    They had a woman in that position on Jeremy Vine the other day (probably the same woman). She got absolutely slated off the callers, it was hilarious.

    Just seen Tyres from Spaced playing a Victorian vigilante in Ripper Street.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.
