The trails didn't really give much idea about what the programme actually was (which turned out to be a good thing) so we had just left the recordings piling up without giving it much thought. Worked out well though as we were able to gorge on it over a short period of time.
Not sure how I feel about there being a second series, but I'll be delighted of they really pull it off.

alright, so I'm watching 'sunday brunch', sometimes that happens, you can't control it... some people live very controlled, terribly mannered, very exact lives where they avoid this shit (I'm assuming), but I'm more freewheeling and loose than that, sometimes things go wrong, so 'sunday brunch' is on... tim lovejoy and the other one were interviewing michaela strachan and they were talking about the wide awake club (which ran from 1984 to 1989... I checked that bit of information... using computer technology) and tim lovejoy says 'oh, I loved the wide awake club, it was great'...

tim, you're a year older than me... in 1984 you would've been 16, in 1989 you would've been 21... are you really suggesting that at any point between the ages of 16 and 21 you would get out of bed, excitedly run to the tv, switch it on and clap your hands and go 'eeeeee!' as timmy mallett, tommy boyd and michaela strach... oh... yeh, yeh, you probably did

I don't know why I'm really that surprised

or indeed feeling compelled to share this knowledge here

Keep finding myself watching Great Canal Journeys with Timothy West and Prunella Scales. Lovely scenery and little titbits of history, but the best bit is just those two, they're just so sweet and seem to have the kind of loving, caring relationship I'd hope to have at that age. Plus Tim's a Bradford lad.

One of the Indietracks organizers was on Pointless yesterday. Nat with her friend Joanna. They got to round two. They'll be back on today.
Richard Osman said he'd come to Indietracks, he described it as cool, if they'd let him drive a train with Sonic Youth playing on board.

He also said on Twitter that he wants to go because Allo Darlin and The Popguns are playing!

An Indiepop Pointless at Indietracks would be a thing of wonderment. As well as possibly the only place on the planet where Christine's Cat wouldn't be a Pointless answer.

I'm impressed with the success of the Rob Brydon brothers, it's confusing they're both called Rob, the one in The Trip, The Trip To Italy, A Cock And Bull Story, Human Remains, Marion & Geoff, even presenting Would I Lie To You? is great but his embarrassing brother on the execrable The Guess List, The Rob Brydon show and a host of other shite is a poor simpering pale imitation of his much more amusing sibling... something should be done

He's quite an intriguing character in that way. I've been watching a bit of his fake panel show/sitcom thing from a few years back (Annually Retentive) where again he plays a fictionalised version of himself. He's pretty much the same Rob from The Trip but with the worst aspects dialled up even further.
Quick, someone write a thesis!

They keep crashing in to stuff! I watch it just for the crashes. I bet they never get their deposit back on any of the boats.

I know! Prunella keeps forgetting to untie the ropes too so they get jerked back suddenly. She's a bloody trooper opening and closing all the locks though while Tim stands there holding the rudder.

'When Corden met Barlow'... I hope the Barlow turns out to be Tracey... her with a blunt weapon... both of them down a dark alley...

I saw a trailer for that earlier. Wish I hadn't.

A new series of 'Revenge' has started on E4, somewhat bafflingly as the 'revenge' of the title is now apparently complete (though doubtless someone will end up walking out of the shower or something). For the uninitiated, this is a kind of 'Count of Monte Cristo 90210', with the main draw being the steely gaze of impeccably groomed anti-heroine Emily Thorne as she seeks to stick another knife in the back of one of the improbably large number of people who were responsible for her father's death. I always feel slightly soiled after watching it, but to my knowledge I've never missed an episode. Anyone else? Or should I seek help.

We saw (and enjoyed) Season 1 - even though it quite quickly became somewhat ludicrous in it's plot. That was enough for us though, i think we may have watched the first one or two episodes of season 2 but then it became one of those shows that just clogged up room on the Sky+ and eventually was decided it could happily be deleted.

Interesting that it is still going.. i cant begin to imagine how far it would have deviated from it's initial concept.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

Erm, not much 'til this series (you've no idea how many people stitched up her dad, who it was revealed at the end of the last series is, rather self-defeatingly, still alive (I think) (it's getting a bit confusing)). It has been increasingly ridiculous though - did you get as far as the bit where it was revealed that Emily had been trained in revenge by a Japanese sensei? TV gold.

I think I'm a bit more tolerant of this stuff 'cos I don't watch the soaps, I get all my melodrama and foolishness in one go, so the progressive slide into 'Sunset Beach' territory hasn't really bothered me that much. It's never really been the same since it stopped being sponsored by Chambord Black Rasperry Liqueur though.

I unashamedly watch 'Revenge'. It is completely ridiculous and soapy and overblown and I LOVE IT.

Ooooh brill, another fan! I thought I might find one here because I'd always put 'Revenge' and indiepop together, although for no other reason that I once heard 'Tears For Affairs' by Camera Obscura in the background of a romantic scene.

But who's your favourite character, after Emily of course (she who is Queen)? Mine used to be Takeda, just for the sheer ridiculous improbability of his existence, but since he died it's been Nolan all the way. I like it when his humorous, cynical exterior slips and he gets all slushy and starts discussing emotional 'issues'. I'm also a big fan of his posh boy, sticky up hair in the new series, although I can't remember if he's had that before.
