    I noticed the other day that some BBC shows that Dave buys actually now record their own Dave idents. I think it was QI - Stephen Fry came on, in the QI set, and said, "Stay with Dave because coming up after the break, QI!"

    o_O

    Do the BBC have holdings in Dave or something? Or is it wholly independant of the Beeb?

    I wouldn't have thought so, aren't some shows still shown on other channels as well, Never Mind the Buzzcocks pops up on Virgin 1 now and again.

    Dave is awesome though, pretty much the only channel I ever watch.

    I thought SotD wasn't the work of genius it was made out to be also, although it seemed to be one of those films that are made for everyone but the really good jokes are in-jokes for film students.

    Case in point, my TV Producer mate thinks it is a work of genuis, laughs his head off the whole way through. I don't get most of the 'subtext' etc...

    Just got back from seeing the show. It was great. The warm up guy was alot funnier than Robin ? who was with RG on the Fame tour.

    "Duffman is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"

    Robin Ince was the warm up to animals and politics as well. I enjoyed the first few stand up tours but he was a bit far too far up his own arse by Fame for my liking so didn't bother with this one.

    Tell you what, watch that, and then we can talk about his artistic integrity.

    Heh, six years later the American Office is probably my favourite thing on TV!

    more clips from the golden globes

    The Robert Downey Jr. clip is quite fun, he opens with "Aside from the fact that it's been hugely mean-spirited with mildly sinister undertones, I'd say the vibe of the show is pretty good so far" and then tries to hit on all the best actress nominees.


    Also, just in case Gervais thought he hadn't burned enough bridges, his last line of the broadcast (after thanking NBC, Hollywood Foreign Press etc.) was to thank God... for making him an atheist.

    I had a few chuckles here and there, but the rest veered between not funny, mean (and not funny), and "would have been funny if it hadn't been done a thousand times before". Charlie Sheen and Hugh Hefner jokes in particular.

    ...maybe I'm just in a bad mood.

    (talking about the opening bit here)

    Can't watch the vid at work but found a transcript:

    Hello. Welcome to the 68th annual Golden Globe awards live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Itís going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie sheen calls it breakfast. Wow, whoa, so letís get this straight. What he did was, he picked up a porn star, paid her to have dinner with him, introduced her to his exwife, as you do. Ah, went to a hotel, got drunk, got naked, trashed the place while she was locked in a cupboard and that was a Monday! What does he do New Yearís Eve?

    Anyway, welcome. The Golden Globes is a celebration of the best in TV and movies over the last year voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. It was a big year for 3-D movies, Toy Story, Despicable Me, Tron, seems like everything this year was three dimensional. Except the characters in The Tourist. Um, I feel bad about that joke. No, Iíll tell you why! Iím jumping on the bandwagon. Cause I havenít even seen The Tourist. Who has? Um, but, no! It must be good because itís nominated, so shut up. And Iíd like to quash this ridiculous rumor going around that the only reason The Tourist was nominated was so the Hollywood Foreign Press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That is rubbish. That is not the only reason. They also accepted bribes. (Claps and yowls of the audience. A camera pans to Johnny Depp chewing gum and smiling with good sportsmanship in the audience.) All that happened was some of them were taken to see Cher in concert. How the hell is that a bribe? Really, do you want to go see Cher? No, why not? Because itís not 1975.

    There were a lot of big films that didnít get nominated this year. Nothing for Sex & The City Two. No, I was sure the Golden Globe for special effects would go to the team that aired that poster. Great job. Girls! We know how old you are! I saw one of you in an episode of Bonanza. (Sentence beeped.)

    Also not nominated I Love You, Phillip Morris. Um, Jim Carrey and Ian MacGregor, two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay. Sort of the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists then. (Gales of laughter.) Probably? My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. Theyíre not here.

    Okay, thereís been some great new TV drama this year like Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead. Talking of The Walking Dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner whoís getting married at the age of 84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris. When she was asked why she was marrying him, she said Ďcause he lied about his age. He told me he was 94.í Oh come on. Donít worry, hold out. Just donít look at it when you touch it. (He gestured with his mouth as though he was giving a BJ.)

    He then added: "I warned them.Ē

    ...he's slighty drunk on stage? That's it?

    It must be the format or something. Or the audience.

    Did you miss the part where he introduced Mel Gibson?

    Anyway, the opening to this year's show was very funny, though I wouldn't have described it as uncomfortable like the article does.

    I never really liked Gervais but having seen his opening at the Golden Globes, I'm going to check his stuff out.

    That took some balls to do that.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
