I watched it last night (aptly just after 10, it’s old time slot), it was good, never great but far far better more recent ‘topical’ impression based sketch output like Newzoids, Dead Ringers, etc. The absence of Jon Culshaw probably helped a lot, can’t stand his smug face (not that he would be visible, but you know what I mean).

Almost fucking wept when I saw Mays was in it. In many ways, I'm Nilsen's 13th victim.

He paid for my breakfast once, so I'll not have a word against him. 

Currently revisiting Sopranos myself. I forgot just how fucking funny it was. As well as probably a top 5 drama it's also a top 20 comedy. A real all rounder.  Christopher's Intervention is in th

Stuck with Community as my late night viewing of choice and just finished series 1 and pleased I stayed with it.

Whilst rarely laugh out loud funny, it is a very wry show full of lovely little touches and characters  (the paintball and chicken fingers episodes were especially excellent) and I love the movie/TV nods.

I still don't like Jeff as a character or an actor, and am now really bemused as to how he got to kiss/sex 3 very attractive women in the first series as well. Also, 25 episodes a series? No.

Also, the Anna Kendrick show Love Life, that I quite enjoyed is now on iPlayer for anyone interested, and the final episode of Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing was particularly lovely. I hope the show keeps going, as it makes me so happy watching it.

I loved the first series of community but I hated the beginning of series 2 so much I never watched it again, so there's something to look forward to.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Spoiler

The opening three episodes of series 4 are so good that I didn't really want them to come back from Florida. I hope Maya Rudolph makes more appearances, too.

I can't remember what thread people were talking about Jerry Seinfeld being a bad actor in but I just saw this clip of an early guest role of his in an American sitcom and he's shocking. He was so bad he got fired after 3 episodes, it's quite impressive how unnatural he is in front of a camera

He’s over acting so much. It’s almost as if because there isn’t a mic in his hands he can’t control their movement. Never seen that before and it’s very bizarre

Just started season 6 of Schitt’s Creek. We’ve done the first 5 in about a month. It takes a while to get its groove but my god. The characters all have real arcs, the storylines are charming and it’s got some amazing performances. I wish I’d started on it sooner. It’s up there with the best for me.

Been watching Love Life on iPlayer. Anna Kendrick obviously elevates it but even without her it’s an easy watch. It’s a bit like Sex and the City if the main character and her mates weren’t massive bellends although Kendrick has her moments but she’s always on the right side of likeable.

Roadkill on BBC one last night featured a stellar cast led by Hugh Laurie who plays a Tory MP Who has just won a court case against a newspaper and has just discovered he has a secret daughter. 

Aunt Polly from Peaky Blinders plays the conniving PM and she's got a Dominic Cunting Cummings style aide whose out to make life hard for people.

It was an enjoyable hour that reflected modern politics a little too much. Quite a few twists and turns means I'll probably watch next week.

Laurie's best performance is still House, followed by Prince George...

Are we getting it anywhere here? I'll find it anyway but just wondered if they'd had a UK channel pick it up. Hulu stuff is very hit and miss.

Not that I’ve seen unfortunately

I heard there was recent but already cancelled series called Kidding about a legendary kid's puppet show presenter having a crisis. It stars Jim Carrey and is produced by Michel Gondry.

I was excited to watch it cos I love kids TV and puppets and stuff, and with Carrey and Gondry I was expecting an imaginative feast of epic proportions. I watched both series in 1 day and I hated nearly everything about it.

I don't regret watching it because it's rare that I actually dislike something so much in such detail, but I do regret watching it alone because it would have been fun to bore someone to death with a constant commentary of why I didn't like it. 

The main thing that pissed me off about it was that with all the potential to do something unique it was just another boring story about a rich white family's power balance, that was the backbone and anything whimsical was just garnish. The few times they did go out of the box to do something a bit weird I also hated as well because they were all stupid and terrible.

My expectations were probably too high for Jim Carrey in this but his character was awful, the basic idea of the character was was ok but having it framed against all the family business squabbles sucked the life out of it and every time he did something out of character to show he was going a bit crazy it was too out of character and so unnapeallingly written that it was never funny or enjoyable or clever or anything. I didn't think the sentimentality was particularly well done in most of the parts with his wife and son but some bits were ok, but I really hated all the stuff with his sister and dad.

Pros : It did have puppets and stuff in it.

Judy Greer gets her tits out twice.

Jim Carrey's brother in law has a couple of funny moments

Sorry for the wall of text, if anyone read this far I guess I did get to bore someone to death after all.
