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. 

We spent this week re-watching Detectorists and I don't think there is a warmer and more lovely comedy ever made. It is spectacular with a pitch perfect ending.

Two episodes into The Queen's Gambit and it's just wonderful. Is Anya Taylor-Joy the best actress on the planet now? Yes she is. But it's a show that's mindful of people like me where our only knowledge is from that episode of Bottom. It's inch perfect so far.

Into the fifth series of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the standard just hasn't dropped at all. The characters continue to evolve at a decent rate and its self-awareness is growing too.

I also started Mad Dogs and really enjoyed the first two episodes. Feels like one of those things that might run out of steam quickly but it's been a really good start.

We’ve just finished the second episode too, she’s great. I really want to play chess now, anyone know how to play chess?

I’m assuming you’re watching the more recent US version that was on Prime, as I wouldn’t imagine you as one for watching Sky’s Original Drama output.

As for that Spitting Image clip- I get that with how everything moves nowadays they need to knock something out quickly before it’s old news, but that was fucking horrific and seemed like they just filmed the first idea that came out of their heads

I'll take that as a compliment, I think, but no, it's the original.

Fair enough. I watched the original because it had Simm & Glenister in it and I really enjoyed Life on Mars. 
I can’t remember a whole lot about it if I’m totally honest, so it might be worth revisiting.

And I wasn’t intending my original comment as a compliment or a cheap-shot (sorry if it came across that way), I just seem to remember you mentioning thinking that Sky’s Drama output was a bit shit so stirred clear of them. I could be confusing you with someone entirely though, so apologies for that.

I don't think I've ever watched any Sky series but I always assume they will be shit. Always liked the look of this though, probably because of the cast.

Vast majority of Sky originals are toss, but Brassic is a good one.
