And I have fuckin’ S2 of Happy as well!

Which has now been cancelled. I can't say I'm either surprised or sorry, TBH — I bailed on this season after four episodes because I thought it was trying waaaay too hard, and comedy paedophiles don't sit too well with me, either. A real shame, because I loved S1.

Matt Berry in What We Do In The Shadows is absolutely making my week. "Remove your fangs, ungrateful creature!"  :lol:

Pleasantly surprised by Years and Years on the Beeb, R.T.Davies traits are all over bits of it but generally, funny, interesting and a little close to home. The female Nigel Farage-a-like is spot on and spot on in the "She's great" "She's a monster" dichotomy of viewer reaction.

Watch only a bit of telly really and glad I gave this series a go. It's been nicely thought-provoking, but with last night's episode it reached new heights, I reckon. *recommended*

He's also in 'Year of the Rabbit' on C4, coming up soon - a Victorian era cop show.

A heads up that TALKING PICTURES TV (SKY 328) is, next Saturday,  showing The Night Strangler, Woman Eater and The Trollenberg Terror. All in one day. A day that happens to be my birthday.
They are also showing 1970s kids ITV supernatural series Shadows, every weekday at 5pm.

Antiques Roadshow is in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral in Wiltshire, where experts discover an eclectic mix of treasures including Napoleon's razor, letters from Enid Blyton and a piece of Queen Victoria's underwear. There is plenty of sparkle from jewellery with a story to tell, and artworks including a hand-painted Christmas card from the Second World War and original drawings of Judge Dredd
