Did anyone else see Maryland on BBC 2 earlier?

 

I caught the last 5 minutes and it was fucking amazing.  It was a kind of performed poem about domestic abuse (which doesn't sound particularly special but f**k me it was powerful).

Didn't even know she'd been on a plane.

Story on GMB this morning about Kate Beckinsale feeding foxes. 

2 things pleased me. Kate, obvs. And she was wearing a t shirt in the clip that said "f**k the f**k off" that they didn't blur out. Nice for 8.30 am.

Four in a Bed can be absolutely comical viewing on a lazy Sunday. 5 episodes on the trot on More4 usually. 
 

Always amazes me that these hotel owners don’t have their rooms in immaculate condition when the other contestants come to visit. If I was a hotel owner showing my business off on national TV, I think the first thing I would do is go out and buy fresh bedding and mattresses. They know the other contestants are going to turn the place upside down to find any dirt or stains, and anyone watching on TV is hardly going to use your hotel if they see pish stained mattresses or discoloured pillows. 
 

Some of the people on it can be extremely petty though. An episode I watched last week had someone find a dead fly stuck inside a window frame, and when it came to scoring the cleanliness they scored them 5/10, which prompted the owner to say ‘Is a fly worth 5?’, which I found very funny.

I thought it would be shite when it was initially recommended to me, to be honest, but Two Doors Down is terrific. Even have to reluctantly admit that Jonathan Watson is brilliant in it.

Watson is a pretty good actor IMO.  The impression stuff in OAE might be a bit dated now but he's decent in sitcoms.

Have you seen him in City Lights? He admitted himself that his acting was way over the top.

He's absolutely brilliant in Two Doors Down. His facial expressions when he's drooling over Michelle are superb.

The darts episode was utterly fantastic.

The episode Mrs Ranter and I watched the other night was the one where Eric went to his door to ask to borrow a hip flask for Alan (for his brother's wedding)

Watson nonchalantly said "he'd look it out and drop it round later" until Eric mentioned that Michelle was on his house right now, and as you say, the change in his facial expression as he said he'd look it out right away and bring it in was brilliant.

I thought that was City Lights' thing at the time - everyone in it seemed to be overacting (& overacting some more after that), not just Watson.
