Cannonball begins tomorrow on ITV at 7pm. It's basically Total Wipeout with Freddie Flintoff.

Spent last night and today binge watching both seasons of The Windsors. Really good stuff but definitely went off the boil in season two. Think they should leave it at that now. As an aside I really recommend Camping with Julia Davis...superb characterisation and script.

What do people think of Back then? Seen the first two episodes. It's alright, I think. Looking forward to seeing more.

Spotted a comedy called Ronny Chieng: International Student on BBC last night. Watched the pilot episode, thought it showed some potential ie it made me laugh on occasion! Tis worth a watch.

Also, on an unrelated note, didn't realise that was most probably the finale of The Dectorists :(

I watched that last night, fantastic fun.

I think its one of the best things on tv at the moment, one of the few shows I make a point of watching. Some of the tasks they come up sound so strawberry floating stupid but when you see what people end up doing, its always brilliant.

Absolutely love taskmaster. They are making a US version soon but without Greg Davies. Not sure it will work as well.

I’m hoping this champions special doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new uk ones.

Yeah I heard about the US one, like most things they try and bring to the US it will probably be gooseberry fool but Ill check it out anyway. Surely theyll do another series over here, its one of Daves best shows.

Speaking of Dave, does anyone watch Dave Gorman’s Modern Life is Goodish? Missed most of the most recent series, but caught the last one this week. His bit on Thomas the Tank Engine was incredible :slol: I’d always found the Henry-gets-bricked-into-a-tunnel episode a bit unsettling, too.

Shame that was the last one EVER, but I’ll be interested in seeing what he does next.

There will be new ones.

It is quite easily one of the best things on TV. The song task in series 5 was great, as was the exotic sandwich one in series 4 where they didn't find out until they had made it that they then had to eat it. It's also great when they add in a rule for only one of the contestants like the candle one where Mark Watson couldn't say any words that contained the letters in Taskmaster.

I've booked tickets to go and see his Live show next year. If it's anything like Modern Life is Goodish, then it shouldn't disappoint.

Noice 8-) I'm seeing him at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham! His recent stand up shows have been quite similar (he's been using PowerPoint presentations in them for *years*), so I'm expecting good things.

Yeah I love the tasks where they don't know they are the only one doing it until they reveal the results.

The one where they had to test cheeky things to a number every day was very good.
