Tell a Friend
(BBC1, Mon 8.30) Are they having me on? There wasn't a man
in a monkey suit was there? Weird but fascinating, I can't turn the series
off. Think it's taste next week, give me marmite!
"The Vault" (ITV, Sat 8.15) Back for a
second series, with one major improvement... No Davina! Melanie Sykes is
better than I anticipated, game show dolly birds aren't always great hosts,
and I think Des has toned her accent down a bit. At least I had some idea of
what she was saying, often helps with quizzes. Still haven't managed to get
through on the phone line, but I've got to keep trying. I could do with the
ten grand. Oh yes.
"Two Pints of
Lager and a Packet of Crisps" (BBC2, Mon 9.30) Oooooooooh!
Series 3. Excellent. I keep thinking this can't be as good as I remember it,
like those orange & lemon slices you have at Christmas, and just like to
orange & lemon slices it IS, if not better. Nothing changes, none of the
characters develop, Louise is still entirely one-dimensional, but I love it.
"Dead Ringers" (BBC2 Mon 9.00) Not glad
to see this one back though. Please, no more. It's not even that good most
of the time, and it's been done to death. Put it out of it's misery.
"Stars Reunited" (BBC1 weekdays 10am)
Wonder which website gave them the idea for that then? Nice idea, and most
people find themselves saying "Oooh, I wonder what happened to...", but
what's the point of Dale Winton? Not just in the context of this show, but
generally, what IS the point of Dale Winton?
"24" (BBC2, Sun 10.00) Is this still
on? Seems like about 24 years now. One series is an interesting idea, 2 is
overdoing it. Big Brother take note.
"Real Life: Unfit Parents?" (ITV, Mon
10.30) See? I do serious from time to time. Confronting stereotypes &
prejudices, blah blah. if you need me to tell you this bit, talk to the
sociology lecturer at your local college, I'm sure they'll be happy to
help. Anyway, far too many unanswered questions at the end of this - how did
they cope with a carer that couldn't help with the shopping? Did they get
pregnant again? Good concept, handled with sensitivity, but it felt
"Big Brother 4" (Channel 4, E4,
forever) Still going, just. Of course the bomb scare on Friday wasn't a
publicity stunt! That's why they took the website down and gave out next to
no information so people would talk about it! It was a microphone for
goodness sake, that THEY'D put there. That's all I can really say this week,
so little's happened. So, Vote Lisa. She might be the only interesting one,
but she's driving me daft.
