"TOTP 2 Comic Relief Special"
(BBC2, Weds 6.20) I have a confession to make. I own
a copy of one of the songs on this show. Not telling you which
one though! I love Tops 2 anyway, but when they've been
digging out the novelty records, then I turn into a giggling wreck in
the corner of the room. Funky Moped anyone?
(BBC1, Thu 9pm) I'm scared. I had to look away a
fair few times during this. I've driven some of those roads,
and know how scary they can be when you're driving at legal speeds, let
alone the speed some of these folks were doing. I think the
programme makers have been reading this column too, I was very pleased
to see the round-up at the end, telling the result of all the incidents
featured. And I really loved the police officers talking to
camera, telling you what's going on in their heads, made them seem
I was going to make this a "Comic
Relief" (BBC1 & 2 Friday) special. But
it was so abysmally bad, I couldn't make myself do it.
High Points - Will Mellor winning Fame Academy, Jade failing her
driving test (and all the others too), Robbie Williams getting naked
for my personal viewing pleasure, Eastenders, Jack & Kym.
Low Points - Carol Vorderman, Ruby Wax, Vic & Bob, half the
celebs on Celeb Driving School not bothering to turn up.
It seems to have lost it's way a bit of late, Yes they still make the
money, but part of that is the double guilt trip in every school,
office and shop across the country - if you don't donate you're both
mean and have no sense of humour. But it's just not funny.
I wish I could explain why I ended up watching "Barbara" (ITV, Sun,
7pm) I guess it's just one of life's little
mysteries. But I found myself in front of the tv, gritting my
teeth, waiting for the woman out of Duty Free & the bloke out
of Allo Allo. And you know what? I almost enjoyed
it. It was actually funny. Not David Brent funny, but
funny compared to the average episode of Friends.Teach me not to be so
cynical in future, eh?
Lanzarote" (ITV, Mon 9pm) Drunk
people, hopeless incompetent who shouldn't be allowed to the end of
their road without adult supervision, let alone overseas, and a twelve
year old pretending to work for an airline.Cringe making,supremely
irritating, I love it of course!
