I've read all the comics, but the series isn't shown here on tv yet, afaik. I guess I should get my age confirmed to lovefilm.com and get it there.

I love it too! But I'm so mad that they aren't showing new episodes until February! And there were hardly any zombies (apart from the high school that is).

I know what you mean. I wonder why they keep delaying new episodes?? Oh well, something to look forward to.

Cut from last night's Jonathan Ross show on ITV:

Tim Minchin singing Woody Allen Jesus.

The Monkey Doctor Who was really good. Admittedly it had Alexander Armstrong as a WWII RAF pilot which had me and my brother rehashing the sketches but after a rather soppy, Richard Curtis-esque start it was a really good story and I felt quite sad at the end. Probably the first christmas film/special to do that since I was 9 and rewatched The Snowman.

The plot twist was painfully obvious afterwards but I didn't see it coming at the time which is what counts. Pieces, go and watch it, you won't be disappointed. There's no multicoloured Daleks for a start :haha:

Edit - Not sure about the casting though, Armstrong I could deal with because he was only present at the start and end but Claire Skinner was a bit too close to her Outnumbered personality to take seriously. It was only in the last scene I genuinely connected with her character.

In other evidence of the BBC war on Monkey, the Michael McIntyre roadshow rendition of Fairytale of New York changed 'merry christmas your arse, I pray god it's our last' to 'merry christmas your boss, I pray god it's our last'.

They did see fit to broadcast 'you scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot' though :confused:

It had Bill Bailey in it...for me that was the best bit.

Unfortunately I am at home with Ma and Pa for Monkey and they have the most comfortable chair in the world with a mechanised foot rest/recline system. I cannot stay awake in it so I've dozed through almost everything on TV.

If you're going to refer to their recliner as the 'Comfy Chair', then you should refer to that part as the 'Spanyerds Boot'.

Sherlock on BBC...fantastic. Episode one was 'A Scandal in Belgravia'. It had a naked lady in it who gave Sherlock a right thrashing!

Just watching the Hound of the Baskervilles episode. I am starting to 'get' this new approach to Holmes. The original Holmes' schtick was that he knew all the train timetables, which was how he could explain how criminals could get from one place to another in just the nick of time; this new Holmes has all sorts of knowledge about mobile phones, computer networks, and information systems, but he also knows all the train timetables. Also, he is addicted to cigarettes instead of cocaine. Brilliant.

Isn't Holmes supposed to be an opium addict? It might be a bit much to have a heroinist protagonist though.
