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

Necroposting, but not sure where else to put this…

Not much love for Hawkeye on here…? It's been great, and the end-of-episode reveal for Ep5? It's kind of been teased, but… woah. That made me unfeasibly happy.

Yeah, I was bouncing up and down in my seat when that got revealed :)

The rather brilliant 1977 Ghost Story for Christmas episode STIGMA is on Iplayer after being rebroadcast last week on BBC 4.
Probably the best the annual anthology ever got and probably one of the most inexplicably upsetting horror stories ever made for TV. Exactly the type of creepy seasonal viewing I feel is missing from the Christmas listings each year right now.

Except for the new Ghost Story for Christmas episode this year, the one in 2019 and the one in 2018?*

Thanks for bringing my attention to the Stigma repeat, though. Didn't know it was on.



*(Also 'new' episodes in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2013 for those keeping count.)

What did ye think of 'The Mezzotint'?
Quite good, if a little dry for my tastes, nevertheless both the missus and I agreed that it was the best entry since 'Number 13' in 2006 (if you discount 2008's Crooked House).

Yep. It's actually quite a close adaptation of the original short story, (aside from the added twist, scary telly ending and more women being around).
