What's good on the telly in the UK these days?
« on: June 20, 2015, 08:39:25 PM »
I was fortunate enough to have had my arm around Karen Gillan a couple of months ago and in that brief moment, I thought (1) is that an actual puppy whimpering in my ear or just in my head?; (2) A.J. Gillan... Andrew J. Gillan; (3) my gosh, she's very tall in real life; (4) don't say anything dumb; (5) don't call her Pond; (6) her upcoming mini-series with Eddie Izzard is going to be on HBO. I don't have HBO. Should I get HBO? What's good on premium TV these days? Everyone seems to be talking about pay service original programs like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black... none of which have compelled me to add to my cable bill. Are there any shows worth the added expense? Should I...

At that point, I was ushered away, still dazed.

So, what current series, if any, is popular in the Godfrey household?
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around

Something from Ceebeebies would be my guess

Dunno about Chateau Godfrey, over here in flat land we are mostly watching archive re-runs of Top Gear and wall-to-wall Breaking Bad.

I'm intensely jealous! You lucky man!  ;)

Anything's got to be better than this gig.
So bad my leg's gone to sleep & Im standing up. That's a very strange feeling.

There's also a tea cozy & man bob alert
