Now there is hardly anything good on TV :cry:

UKTV you mean. A lot of good USTV remains- the best new show of last year, Homeland, starts at 9:30 today on channel 4.

Aye most of the stuff I watch is from the US now.

Watson & Oliver on bbc2 just now. Proud to see it and can say that I was there, I was there when the apocalypse hit. There's room for this but no more Bellamy's People. Amazing.

Glad to see Don't Start Me Off are on the case: http://www.dont-start-me-off.com/CelebInfo.php?celeb_id=10085

There was a one-off special back in 2010, and after the success of that the BBC commissioned a three-episode series. It doesn't follow the story of any of the books, it just uses the character of Dirk. Stephen Mangan actually fits the role quite well. I had my doubts about him before the pilot.

Thought that was pretty good, too.

No. There's a single reference to the pilot in passing, but the new episodes are basically standalone episodes.

I'll have to watch it on the iPlayer. Problem I have is that I just spot bits of plots taken from the different books. Enjoyed the 2010 one though, was better than I was expecting.

Watched it last night and enjoyed it. Made me laugh quite a bit. Thought the previous episode was better though.

Anyone remember to watch it this week? :shifty:

Seemed a lot more straightforward than the previous episodes knew the woman would be both the daughter and the AI the instant she showed up and spoke funny.

Still, good episode :wub: Helen Baxendale has a fantastic nose.

Forgot to say I enjoyed the last episode. Even if it was a bit predictable.
