First Seven episodes of Twin Peaks 3rd series. Dunno if Twin Peaks has moved on 25 years or I have - probably a symbiotic 'both'. I actually like what they are doing with the story! As ridiculous as it is. Consensus seems to be it is more like the film work of Lynch. Maybe they should change the title to Dale Cooper rather than Twin Peaks. My love of the show hasn't really dampened as I find it quite compelling still. It is still the daddy of all TV drama's for me, although maybe I will have to make an exception for...

Game of Thrones Series 7 Episode 1. Building and building. Love it. Such intuitively strong storytelling.

Proms - John Adams Harmonium & John Williams special. Both recommended for the fan.

Nish Kumar's The Mash Report. Maybe The Day Today has already been there, but I still enjoyed it. Any link to The Daily Mash?

The Mash Report
Jul 26, 2017, 20:12
A WOOFer is thrown off an overbooked flight
and is forced to subsist on the remnants
of a hastily Wikipedia'd canteen
next to a television studio.

With nothing but discarded Bud Limes and a votive rucsac potato to eat
The WOOFer boards the return flight
via some magic of the internet

Nine years later a mutant fly emerges

and attaches its proboscus to that round cable arrangement they used to have at Broadcasting House because it's more efficient to have a round building with that much cabling in it.

Really enjoying Nish Kumar's Daily Mash style programme - particularly the headlines which could have come straight from the website. It is by the same people. Ellie Taylor is a great newscaster too.

Matthew Collings History of Abstract Art on the iplayer. I like his easy, friendly and open minded presentation style and enquiring mind. Didn't realise he was also an abstract artist with his wife. Particularly liked his interviews with other living abstract artists as well as a brief potted history.

Nearly finished all 5 series of Misfits on All4. One of the better renditions of the superpowers trope. Xmen seemed to kick it off at the turn of the century and we've been bombarded ever since. People given powers doing community service and often every day life issues dealt with sympathetically like aging and... actually that's the only one i can think of off the top of my head! Oh yeah, there's plenty of sex too.

Back with Mitchell and Webb. Quite a good vehicle for the two to do their honed double act.

Impossible Dreams. That Philip K Dick inspired series on channel 4 based on his short stories. S'not bad - maybe not long enough to get into the stories each week.

Well, you know what it is:

The Good Place

yes, you too can cross the old/young divide with Ted Danson's still stirling performance as Ted Danson in The Good Place (out now on Netflix at an excruciating one episode a week).

And they had that Dredd on Channel 4 again which is the only good action film - you can see why they can't really do a sequel because the punchline is already there, but if you're a fan of moving shapes and colours, invent a memory reallocation algorithm that can prevent landscape popup issues when accelerating at 9.8m/s2!

Christ I sound like a retarded SEO copy writer. Did I say "anti-Black Mirror"? bleurhglfflb better than an infinite permutation of the christmas drunk waiter play anyway
