More marathons…

31 12 2006

If you are watching TV right now, and you have freeview, there are four great marathons on.First up, ITV3 has a Tales of the Unexpected marathon running. This used to scare me as a kid, but I can’t see why. Maybe it was the music. Yea, that was it.

If Roald Dahl isn’t your thing, there is a Futurama marathon on Sky Three. you have just missed one of the best episodes, but there are still a couple more good ones to come.

If Sci-fi animation doesn’t tickle your funny bone then click the remote one up to UK History.
They are showing the first 5 Planet Earth back-to-back, and it never gets old. Working on that program, travelling the world, remote places… would be awesome.

But I understand it’s not for everyone! So that’s why my final pick is the quite broad hospital comedy that we all love Scrubs. ABC1 are running aseason 2 marathon as we speak!

If you don’t like any of those 4 programs, I really don’t know what you’re doing here.

As some of you may know, I had to work over Christmas. I was cool with it. The original plan was to finally finish watching Season 1 of The Wire, so I’m no longer out of the loop.

Anyway, it was a blessing in disguise because that meant I got to watch The Lost Room.

Friday Night Lights

I watched the pilot of this show a few months ago now, and thought it was really well put together. I didn’t know the book, and I didn’t know the movie, I had just heard really good things about it and I thought I would give it a go, even though I care very little about that sport that Americans call “Football”.

Scrubs and Poo

30 12 2006


NBC have released another video from the upcoming musical episode of Scrubs. While it’s not as funny as “Guy Love”, it’s still a good indication of the work they are putting into this ep. I’m not usually a fan of musical episodes of anything, but I’m kind of looking forward to this. If I knew when it was going to be on, I would tell ya.. Check the video after the jump..

The Decline of UK TV

29 12 2006

Ofcom have revealed that 75% of households in the UK have gone digital, that is to say these homes have at least one TV that is connected to either a freeview box, Sky “Digi-kal” or some sort of digital cable hookup.

Digital Spy report that as a result of this, viewers are turning away from the five major terrestrial channels, in favour of smaller digital niche programming.

Farewell Gil…

Gil Grissom

According to TV Squad, William Petersen will be taking a short sabbatical from CSI after next week’s episode on CBS. The word on the street is that he may not come back. Without the mordern day Columbo that is Gil Grissom, is this the beginning of the end of CSI’s domination of TV schedules all over the world??

The return of Futurama…

16 12 2006

…is imminent. It was great. Especially in the last season, when they knew they were getting cancelled. The writing and (voice) acting just got better and better. David x. Cohen gives an interview here, without giving too much away, about the episodes being prepared for 2008.
