It made me realise that I'm not hugely interested in other people's daily lives.

Pretty much why I didn't bother with it.

All In The Best Possible Taste With Grayson Perry
Perry travels Britain discovering how taste in different classes differs and then makes big tapestries depicting his travels. I've only seen the Wrking Class episode so fa but it was hugely enjoyable. I've always like Perry and he makes a really amiable and insightful host.

Punk Britannia
At last, a document of British punk that doesn't harp on (incorrectly) about how the New York scene influenced the British scene. Two episodes in, covering the birth of pub rock and the explosion of punk, and its been a couple of hours of great footage and music. It also concretes my view that John Lydon is one of the greatest Englishmen ever.

Evidently... John Cooper Clarke
Legendary punk-poet, stick figure and all round nice guy gets an hours exposure on TV. About time. Best moment - his story of how he always wanted to meet Tom Waits and then discovering a bunch of photos of him, Waits and Billy Connolly, arms round each other partying that were taken during Clarke's "drug period"...he hasn't a clue when or where they were taken.

Kirk and Spock in nazi uniforms, it's like they projected the inside of my brain and put it on tv.

Patterns Of Force. It's a reasonable episode, but not as good as A Piece Of The Action, where Kirk and Spock become 1920s gangsters.

That was on the other day. Shatner delivering his gangster dialogue was a thing to behold.

Anyone else been watching Braquo on FX? I've just finished watching the second series and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a violent drama about corrupt French policemen - I think it's out on DVD this week.

Yes and yes. Did you watch series one? It was just a "grtty" but a little more realistic. If anything, S2 went a little too far down the 24 route; although it looks like s3 is set-up nicely after the jaw-drop ending...

I missed the first episode of season one (Mink saw it so he told me what happened) but I watched the rest. I loved the policeman who's gone mental dressing up as the prostitute. I've got high hopes for season three but it doesn't look like they've started filming yet so not sure when it will be on TV here.

Will.i.am and Miriam Margolyes on Graham Norton's show were possible the strangest and funniest pairing of guests I've seen in a long time.

I'm really looking forward to seeing that one - there was a lengthy discussion of their combined hilarity on a FB group I'm on.

Did anyone see Alan Partridge's special that was on a few days ago?

I've not seen it yet, but I recorded it.

I've seen a few bits of it; it's pretty standard Partridge stuff, although it kind of lacks the spark he gets with other characters as it's mainly him on his own. Still, there is an excellent send-up of current TV history programs. If you like Partidge, you'll like this.

BBC beats ITV in Euro 2012 final clash with 10.1m v 1.7m.

No surprise there, but did anyone else notice that the BBC transmission was several seconds ahead of ITVs? Can't have helped.

I got sick of Adrian Chiles as the tournament went on. BBC was the only choice.
