this seems like my jam, very much in the How To with John Wilson school

Hah, Ogmios is also in my old area, the St Ann's Road / Seven Sisters junction at the start of his second one was a minute away on the bike.

I'm building up the courage to say hello to him and congratulate him on the series next time I see him in the street.

Does this cover the day when the bus I was on was crashed into twice right there?

If it was crashed into by a scooter-boi, almost definitely

sad lol at Mike Nesmith on Toast. coincidence? and that DB Cooper documentary was on BBC4 recently
i don't expect another series of Herbert Clunkerdunk, probably a bit too out-there.

that's a new series of Starstruck showing at the moment - i thought it was repeats and missed the first episode 8(
(not entirely sure it needs a second series tbh)
elsewhere (ie ch4) the last in the series of 8/10 cats does countdown had sean lock on it for the first time this season and probably the last time ever.

Didn't want to bring levity into the Ukraine thread (or confuse non-brits) but this made me laugh a lot.

Any love for the Witchfinder? Graun panned it, and it certainly depends on how much you can bear Tim Key, but it's an enjoyable watch imo.

Watched the first and it was ok but not much more. It's very much a vehicle of the two stars with them playing 'their sort of character' and the script sort of writing itself.
Maybe I have enough faith in the Gibbonses to pull it round but I'm not completely convinced.

Didn't know Chris Ramsey either but he's fun!
O'Hanlon seeming to slot in as perpetual loser, which is prob the best case scenario for his meagre talents.

Great first episode, great new contestants. Sophie's my favourite so far, Chris seems up for winning it.

Yeah as pretty much always the line-up is far better in practice than in theory. Bridgette is so entertainingly odd!
― chap, Monday, 18 April 2022 15:14 (one month ago) link
Have you heard her appearance on Off-Menu? It's great - entertaininly odd is entirely her vibe. My partner has decided she wants to wear Bridget's in-studio dress for our civil partnership ceremony later this year.
― politics is about vibes and the vibes are off (stevie), Monday, 18 April 2022 16:07 (one month ago) link
I've not had much exposure to her - aware who her partner is of course and that she's a successful stand up.
― chap, Monday, 18 April 2022 16:30 (one month ago) link
She was a bit rude to me when I attempted to sell her my fanzine at the Garage, but it was 24 years ago and I should probs let it go now.

Radio 4 tomorrow at 6
"Quizzer and comedian Paul Sinha and his audience join together to compile a perfect pub quiz, this week on the theme of literature."
this seems to be a slightly different format from the last two series he did for radio 4, but i enjoyed those.

Just hoovered up new Steve Coogan and Sarah Solemani's new comedy drama on Channel 4: Chivalry. I see it got fairly widespread good reviews for the first two episodes which were broadcast last might.
It's really beautifully timed filmed with fantasy ocean-side residences, glamorous Hollywood hotels and interiors, and very easy to watch with episodes being around the 20 minute mark. Agree with some of the reviews that it backed away in its stated aim of examining the environment of Me Too for film industry. Was still not quite sure what to make of it until it took a complete nosedive in the last episode - which is one of the worst tv episodes I have seen for several years.
I'll be interested to see if commentators update their appraisal when they reach the end of the series
