These are funny too.  They're not rude honest.

Loving the new series of Benidorm,
Jaqueline singing in Bananarama was class
some great one liners 'Chorizo sausage in cider'
and Mateo getting arrested for soliciting was hilarious

Most of the shows we watch are on Sky: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login (incredibly funny) and we're currently working our way through the box set of You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

Lost is superb, with complex, interweaving story lines and finely drawn characters, plus an outstanding location.  If you're wiling to take the time with it, and enjoy complex ScFi, then you  will enjoy Lost.

Every so often, US TV comes along with shows that challenge viewers and make them work.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login was one such, and it's in the same stable as Lost. Thinking about, you probably don't need a TV these days;  simply buy the box sets of the best of the shows that arrive.

Didn't take to Dexter, but Vampire Diaries was okay, for a while, but I eventually stopped watching.

About five weeks ago a rather odd, indeed - surreal - programme appeared on Sky Atlantic. Called You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login , originally piloted on BBC 3.

It's very odd, but at the same time strangely compelling.  In fact, it's funny, clean, intelligent and fairly original. The two leads also play most of the parts but the most significant aspect is the legion of top quality performers they've had lining up to be involved. Simon Callow was the latest, but Harry Hill, David Tennant, Catherine Tate and Nigel planer - to name but four - have all appeared.  This is good stuff: they don't do easy gags, or cheap laughs.  There are repeated aspects - such as the Island Singers - which are a delight.

Well worth watching.

X Factor

Fans of X Factor cried "fix" last night according to the Daily Mirror today. Apparently a music chain offered the chance to pre order Amelia Lily's winner's single -  four days before the grand final!
How come her single is available but not the other two contestants singles?
There have been allegations of phone rigging in the past with other shows so I would have thought the voting system would have been more transparent and the viewers made aware of how many votes each contestant has received.

Oh do me a favour of course it's bloody rigged.  I mean Jedward won one year and what a pair of annoying quiffed Muppets they were, it's utter brain numbing crap.  Wagner the geriatric, couldn't sing if he tried, leather clad old has been, not a chance did ordinary people vote for him, no he was left in as he was a talking point even if it was negative. he was the male version of Margarita Pracatan from the Clive James show.  Talking of Clive James he once said "watching this, made me want to pull off my head and give it a good wash out with hot soapy water" I rest my case  ;D

I personaly think that all voting should be by a "live panel" in the theatre, present at the time of the performance.  Then you would get an honest vote 'cos they would not be coruptable, would they?????    _))*    _))*    _))*

You could well be right Yorkie but they are only after money and that's why they have the phone in's.   I don't think that Jedward won the X Factor but they did manipulate their singing by turning down the mic's of Jedward and turning up the mic's of the backing group so as to drown the awful racket that Jedwood produced.
 Since then they have tampered with the autotune for acts like Wagner and recently Kitty.  The whole business stinks anyway and I'm surprised that I still watch this stuff.

Well the Daily Mirror got it wrong, Amelia Lily was kicked out last night. 

  I watched about 15 minutes of the programme and then switched off as it was a load of rubbish.
Won't be watching any of it tonight though!

Hugo, I have not watched it since our youngest got knocked out in the second round in Manchester a few years ago in favour of individuals who definitely could not sing.

I think that you've done the wisest thing Bri, I've always thought that it was rigged to get the acts through that would generate the most money for the show whether they could sing or not.
This year was worse than the others so next year I'll do like you have and not bother at all.
