I'm watching Come Dine With Me, it's in Croydon and of course there's some mouthy old cow on it. Dirty Croydoners.

Discovery Realtime is showing CDWM ALL DAY (6am today to 2am tomorrow).
It's a good job I'm going out in an hour otherwise I would get exactly nothing done.

Plus they're showing the 'classic' Preston episodes on More4 later today, too.

When we were looking for a new flatmate, one guy came round who defined his sense of humour through his appreciation of Family Guy. I had series one on DVD (not sure why) and he excitedly pulled it out as a cultural benchmark that would bind us together.

He didn't move in.

Too right. Unfortunately, I didn't realise when I was moving in that it would be into a Twilight/Step Up/She's The Man/John Tucker Must Die/The Lake Houe flat. Guess I'll be watching my sick films alone in my bedroom where perhaps they're best kept anyway.

Now i have to watch this now.

I will only watch Robin Hood every now and again for the BryanFerrySeanBean hybrid that is Richard Armitage. He would make a great John Childermass in my adaptation of Norrell/Strange.

Oooof Guy of Gisborne. I love him, but still haven't managed to sit through an episode of the Hood.

I watched Jade: As Seen On TV on E4 last night. A fairly decent tribute in all, but it did make me wonder if Susan Boyle is the new Jade.

She arrived on the scene almost seemlessly after Jade's death and appears to have taken up the mantle of a media created celebrity. Filled the vacuum left by Jade no longer being around. People on the programme were saying they couldn't see another Jade-like character emerging again, but the media frenzy around Susan Boyle is currently running on similar paths to those seen when Jade left the Big Brother house.

Susan has the benefit of her voice being percieved as a talent, but already there are people - a fair few of them famous - saying she's over-rated and not as good as the media makes out, much like the criticism Jade had for the 7 years she was in the public eye.

If Jade's got the musical of her life, you can bet Susan will have the movie for hers.

Did you hear her 'sing' this week. She was like a drunk Auntie at a wedding. I really hope it was down to her having a cold. Before that I thought she was an OK singer but, as with Jade, the hype and media attention far outweighed any actual talent there. The only reason anyone made a big deal was because she wasn't very attractive and admitted she was a virgin. (Oooh, come on world, lets all either point and laugh or be completely patronising.) It was all really quite sickening.

I hope for her own sake she doesn't win. Did you see the 'makeover' they gave her, too. Obviously they're waiting to see if she wins to see if she's worth a full set of new teeth, eh? Poor woman.

I had to switch BGT off after she started singing, all the hype got to her, I think.

Watched the excellent BBC1 documentary Tourettes: I Swear I Can't Help It last night. My heart went out to John Davidson, whose afflication clearly hasn't lessened any in the past 20 years. I saw the original doc back in 1988, but missed the follow-up they did in 2002, so it was interesting to follow 15-year old Greg's story in tandem with, and in contrast to, John's. Seeing the differences between their individual circumstances was quite an eye-opener - John really had a tough childhood because of this (at the time) little known or understood condition. It was really nice to see that despite such a comparatively difficult upbringing, he has managed to attain a reasonably decent quality of life.

I know it's not a topic to be laughed at, but it was genuinely (and for the right reasons) funny, as well as interesting and moving in equal measure. I simply had to laugh out loud at a couple of bits, particularly the moment when he swore in his pet labrador's face immediately after having made a fuss of him.

Here's a far better review for anyone who missed it -> Click

It is on iPlayer too HERE, and it's truly, well worth a view.

Just watched Armando Ianucci on Milton's Paradise Lost - brilliant and enlightening documentary on a piece of literature and a man I knew vaguely about, but I'm now very keen to read the whole work myself. It was like being back at school with a really inspirational and engaging teacher (not the bits involving dead legs and ritual humiliation). When Armando reads the passage about Satan's arrival in hell and starts underlining the alliteration and vowel sounds, I started to get very nostalgic.

Vaguely related: we had a Tourette's sufferer in the cinema last week for 'Let The Right One In'. He wasn't the swearing type, more the sniffs, coughs and snorts sort. We were very close to leaving during the trailers, and I was even tempted to ask - in the most sensitive way possible - if it would be as bad through the movie. I couldn't believe our luck, especially after the episode with the mice. But we persisted and it turns out he was able to control it to some degree, perhaps by concentrating or by being distracted by the film, so he just sounded like someone with the sniffles. He really let loose after the film though, practically jumping off the ground with whoops and ticks.

I have to admit that I do own the DVD of the original documentary and follow up 'Johns Not Mad' and it is mostly for comedy purposes. My ex lived the town next to John and we used to see him in Gala quite often, he is a very nice bloke, he did shout 'slut' right at my ex's sisters direction once when she was a bit tarted up before a party biggrin.gif

A brutal interviewing episode tonight. Plenty of flustered people who are put in their place about talking too much and bullshitting. Top notch.

Looking forward to the final on Sunday although I'm still not sure who is going to win.

I correctly predicted the two finalists, but I could never have predicted I'd well up when (spoiler tagged in case anyone's going to iPlayer it later) James left. Not that he deserved to win, but when he got up, turned round, smiled and said "It's been brilliant" with all his boyish enthusiasm, it's no wonder the whole bleeding lotta them had to leave the bloody boardroom to bloody compose them bleeding selves.

Well they've just announced a full 13 part series. It's fun in a shambolic sort of way, but concur re: Watson. He's fine on his own, but seems to flounder when it comes to presenting duties. Some comedians just don't seem particularly comfortable in that role and forget to 'bring the funny', e.g. Marcus Brigstocke on I Haven't Seen Star Wars.

I don't think it is, the voice sounds much older than her (Then again, she's just turned thirty hasn't she? Or she's about to, I think.)

I suppose it's a bit one-sided when they don't tear stripes off the Goths quite as much as they do the Scousers.

Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow stirred contradictory feelings in me. McIntyre is an extraordinary irritant and makes my teeth itch but it's so good to see stand-up in such a high profile time slot on BBC One, particularly people who wouldn't otherwise be on telly. Stewart Francis and Rhod Gilbert were this week's high points I feel. Mark Watson's set seemed over-edited, Kevin Bridges not my cup of tea. Looking forward to next week. Sarah Millican and Mick Ferry are two of my favourite stand-ups in the country. John Bishop's not bad either.
