Things that annoy or delight you on the telly right now

Recommended Posts

Just finished watching both series of Killing Eve.

An awful lot of coincidences, a bit far fetched, and even a wee bit annoying at times, but still very good.

Obviously not a new programme, because the Queensferry Crossing in the background was unfinished and they referred to it being due to open in 2016, but I did enjoy the one on Channel 5 about how the Forth Bridge was built.

The Masked Singer.

Awful. Absolutely f**king awful. Can’t see why this is “allegedly” a TV hit around the world (according to ITV)


The mother in law was watching this shite when i dropped the boys off on Saturday night. Looks like someones had a really weird dream and decided to bring it to life. Or a £20 bet with another producer that the public will watch any old shite at this time of year.

Valerie Singleton having an absolute nightmare on House of Games on BBC2. Was useless yesterday as well. You'd think she'd research what the show was about before going on. She comes across as a snooty cow as well.

Watched the first two seasons of Community recently, absolutely hilarious. Chevy Chase, John Oliver and Donald Glover are all brilliant in it.

Started out in the snowy wilderness of the northernmost island of Hokkaido where he did dog sledding, professional snow balling, cooking octopus and visited a samuria sword maker. Next one he's on the main island of Honshu where he goes up a mountain with some old guy, drives big robots, goes to boy band gig at 7am, and boards the worlds most luxurious train to Tokyo. Six episodes in total.

 It drifts into “oh how zany” and May is pretty insufferable, but some of it is interesting.

 

Episode 4 is a bit odd, but the Bim part had me tears of laughter.

The two episodes of 24 Hours In Police Custody over the last two days have been gripping viewing.
I enjoyed the outcome at the end.....shove that right up their fucking smart arses.

Masked Singer has been masquerading as TV here for 2 seasons already. I have seen 0 minutes of it other than trailers so it’s ambivalence from me here.
Delighted to watch reruns of the original Starsky and Hutch TV show. Forgot how much grittier it was at the start.

I watched an episode of Colombo at the weekend. I had forgotten how good it is, particularly Falk but also the unusual nature of the crimes. Is it available via any of the normal streaming services?

The best thing about the superb Columbo is that it's not a whodunit, it's watching the murderer slowly unravelling. 

Your spot on there.Also some of the great actors who play the murderers Robert Culp,Jack Cassidy etc. I,ll never tire of watching Columbo.

I used to enjoy Columbo but not watched it for years.

Maybe I need to revisit.

There were some decent deals on the complete Columbo box set in the lead-up to Christmas. Essential purchase.

You keep thinking you've finished watching, then right as you're about to eject the disc, you feel the need to watch just one more episode.
