I have recently been watching The IT Crowd. Almost at the end of Season 4 now.

Had not seen it before.

Seasons 1 and 2 were brilliant. Seasons 3 and 4 seem to lack the same magic. Maybe it's the lack of Richmond. The writing seems to have lost something too.

Been going through some comedy shows over the past six months or so, watched Bottom, Blackadder, Father Ted, It Crowd, The Thick of It and Black Books. Some of them I've seen before.

Currently watching the Alan Partridge boxset, on Knowing me, Knowing You. Never seen this before. That bit in the first episode where he brings the TV presenter's son out :lol:

I love it all, and all the seasons have some classic episodes even it's not all at quite the same standard. There's a special episode to end the series after the fourth which is pretty excellent. I think it has it's own separate entry on Netflix.

They made that last one because series four ended without a proper finale. It just... ended. No fanfare or especially climactic plot or anything.

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.

The Yellowstone documentary which was on BBC4 earlier was really good. Some spectacular visuals.

BBC iPlayer catch-up window extended to 30 days

Shows’ availability no longer limited to seven days, as BBC says Sherlock’s return is most-viewed programme of 2014 to date


The BBC is to make TV and radio programming available on the BBC iPlayer for 30 days.

The extension from the current seven-day catch-up window has been introduced in time for the traditionally popular autumn TV schedule, with shows auch as Peaky Blinders and drama The Fall.

The move came as the BBC revealed that Sherlock’s return from the grave is the most popular show on the iPlayer so far this year.

“BBC iPlayer pioneered online viewing,” said the BBC director general, Tony Hall. “Extending the catch-up window to 30 days now makes the best value on-demand service even better. We have a fantastic autumn schedule and the public will now have more opportunities to watch the shows they love.”

There are more than 7m requests for BBC iPlayer programming a day.

The BBC said the Sherlock series three opener had received more than 3.6 million requests on the iPlayer.

The Top 10 is dominated by Top Gear, includinng the controversial Burma special when Jeremy Clarkson referred to an Asian man as a “slope”.

Comedy Outnumbered and BBC3 drama Murdered By My Boyfriend also made the list.

Top BBC iPlayer programmes of 2014 so far

1. Sherlock Series 3 (episode 1 – The Empty Hearse) 3,643,900 requests

2. Top Gear Series 21 (episode 1) 3,535,600

3. Top Gear Series 21 (Burma Special – part 1) 3,340,700

4. Top Gear Series 21 (episode 3) 3,191,000

5. Murdered By My Boyfriend (one-off drama) 3,021,300

6. Sherlock Series 3 (episode 2 – The Sign of Three) 3,017,600

7. Sherlock Series 3 (episode 3 – His Last Vow) 2,916,900

8. Top Gear Series 21 (episode 2) 2,906,900

9. Outnumbered Series 5 (episode 1) 2,857,500

10. Top Gear Series 21 (Burma Special – part 2) 2,797,500

I realise this topic seems to be dormant, but I'm not quite sure where else this should go.

Anyway, secret best UKTV show of the past few years...The Detectorists is back this week! Thursday 10PM on BBC4.

Cool, I've updated the thread title.

I don't tend to watch a lot of UKTV these days, so if someone else wants to take control of the thread that's fine by me.

Just started watching Not Safe For Work and they've already dropped the "Northampton is the furthest from the sea it's possible to get in the UK" line :slol:

Already 100% accurate with my experience of the place.

Has anyone been watching War and Peace?

I don't normally go in for these costume dramas but chuffing Nora this one is fantastic.

The Trip 3 (Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan) is moving from BBC2 to Sky Atlantic after the Beeb said they didn't want it, probably due to the awful ratings of the last one in Italy.
