This one wasn't exactly very coherent, as well as not being even remotely funny but I suspect it wasn't really designed to be.

two weeks pass...

i do love the vindictive single-person tasks on taskmaster but tonight's was especially classic: "Fart. Fastest wins."

(except that ended up quite disturbing)

I haven't laughed as much in ages as I did at the unexpected ending to that task.

anyone watched Frank of Ireland?

Quite astoundingly shite based on the first episode (and any other clips I've seen)

Like we all know TV is a cesspool of nepotism but you think someone would have stepped in at some point

i managed five minutes.

I watched the whole thing because you never know when you're going to see someone you know, but yeah, it wasn't good.

Only saw the end but that wasn't very good.
Partridge is back next Friday though!

Counterpoint: Frank of Ireland isn't total shit, merely very mediocre. C4 hyping it like the new Father Ted, though.

Scots seem to love it based on an informal survey of my Facebook feed.

Frank Of Ireland absolute embarrassing joke drought. What has Domhnal Gleeson done to deserve this?

The fart Taskmaster was hilarious. "It's like a casserole down there."

Mike Wozniak very good all round on Taskmaster. I feel sorry for Charlotte, hope she wins a show at least.

Isn't his brother the show's creator? xp

groovypanda, Monday, 26 April 2021 10:31 (one week ago) link

he's got previous with greg on Man Down, which i keep forgetting. but yes, from about 5 seconds into episode 1, he was obviously going to be good value.

My very first exposure to After Life was the scene with the plastic surgery casualty, and I was howling. Things got really sentimental after that, I wonder what the ilx consensus is on this one. I tried a Google search to no avail

i am enjoying Starstruck after the first two episodes. nice casting, fun acting, decent script, clearly a fantasy but a fairly compassionate and enjoyable one with about two genuine laughs per half hour. Matafeo is a new face for me and is welcome.

Draymond is "Mr Dumpy" (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 29 April 2021 14:46 (one week ago) link

her series of Taskmaster was good

koogs, Thursday, 29 April 2021 15:29 (one week ago) link

My boss just recommended Starstruck to me. Really like Rose Matafeo so will definitely give it a go.

ailsa, Thursday, 29 April 2021 18:35 (one week ago) link

re starstruck : i watched 3 eps today and really enjoyed it.
doesn't do anything out of the box, just some very welcome, feel good vibes with lots of chuckles.
looking forward to seeing the rest this weekend.
and yeah, she was very good on taskmaster.

I can only watch one episode at a time because Ireland, but I really enjoyed the first episode. Exactly what forks and mark e said. Nothing groundbreaking, but a very good feeling from the whole thing.

Did you see the film she did with Neville from the Harry Potter films? It's good too.

not yet. been waiting for it to hit a streaming service which it has to given circumstances.
saw a clip on the last leg (i think !?), and it looked really good.

Her comedy special, Horndog, is really good - we were keen to see her after, er, seeing her and David O'Doherty on Celebrity Pointless.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:58 (one week ago) link

We saw her live at Kilkenny a few years ago. Annoyingly, she was on a bill with three very well-known Irish comics, so everyone was there to see them, and she got very nervous because it wasn't going all that well (it wasn't horrible or anything, just, you know) and she talked really really fast and got a bit squeaky, but we liked her very much all the same.

The new This Time was a mixed bag, as always.

chap, Saturday, 1 May 2021 00:03 (five days ago) link

agreed, but I liked it. I got more out of s1 on a rewatch. the three different phone icons was spot on, can't remember what else cracked me up

kinder, Saturday, 1 May 2021 09:13 (five days ago) link

The body language section was good.
