The League of Gentlemen and Alan Partridge are the only ones that take my fancy. Maybe I'll give McMafia a chance too.

Not this year. Brooker was too busy. Maybe a new season of Black Mirror though...

Awful list. I'll pass.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Only old people watch live (non-sports) TV, that's probably why the line up seems designed solely for those over 50.

I didn’t realise there was a Christmas upstart crow on. That’s good news.

It’s often turning out that the only things watchable over Christmas are Pixar/dreamworks films on the bbc, from that point of view they do a good job.

Since getting Netflix and Amazon (plus a smattering of High Seas content...) I've quite enjoyed putting together my own Christmas TV schedule - between DVD's, streaming and a smattering of live content you can create the perfect package!

Currently trying to choose which Christmas episodes to watch and when. The Peep Show Christmas episode is a must, along with those from the first 3 seasons of Community, but those so much else to choose from!

Do many people really watch TV on Christmas day? So long as you have at least some family and friends there's kind of a lot to be getting on with.
