I don't get why a girl would put her boyfriend on this show.. if you think he's a cheater and acts like a twat then dump the bastard.*
Just showed a bit where one girl was going on about how she doesn't think her boyfriend would cheat on her intersped with him shagging another girl in a cubicle of a club. What this show needs is a huge host to pin the cunt to a wall and ask him what the fuck he thinks he's playing at.

:lol: Alot of couples on there really do seem to be made for each other, for a Challenge one week they should send the girls to Snog, Marry, Avoid and then see how long it takes their boyfriends to realise its the same person when they come back.

Shameless Episodes 6 & 7 where both brilliant. So far I can't fault this series.

Hoping that 10 O'Clock Live with Jimmy Carr, David Mitchell, Charlie Brooker & Lauren Laverne tomorrow night will be good. Shall watch for a couple of weeks I think & see how it goes.

The new episode of Family Guy was pretty funny and had some more intelligent jokes in. Makes me wonder if the writers were distracted at the start of the series or maybe someone just told them to get it together because the scripts were crap

yeah, its suppose to bridge the gap between the 2 segemnts of Dr Who in terms of scheduling, which is how he wrote it (DW part 1, Sherlockl, DW part 2). lets hope that Watson isnt left out too much because of Martin Freeman working on The Hobbit (LotR perquel) in Oz.

Earlier tonight I watched the best thing directed by Martin Scorsese since Casino.
The pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire.

Apart from it winning the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama the other night, and that it was set in prohibition era America, I knew absolutely nothing about the show.
I didn't know Steve Buscemi was in it, I didn't know Scorsese directed it, and I definitely didn't know that Combo from This is England played Al Capone.
I have a good feeling about this.

Just watched Snog Marry Avoid because someone I've trained with a few times was on it. Jesus, what a dreadful programme.

RED DWARF IS BACK

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/ar ... eries.html

Coronation star Craig Charles has stunned Red Dwarf fans by revealing the cult sci-fi show is set to return to our screens for a brand new series next year.
The futuristic BBC comedy - which featured Charles, 46, as Dave Lister, the last remaining human alive - originally ran for eight series over an eleven year period before it was axed in 1999.

Many fans lamented the loss of the sci-fi show, which saw the motley crew of the Red Dwarf mining space ship floating through space with Lister desperate to return to earth, alongside his hologram bunk-mate Rimmer, Holly the computer and the ever cool Cat.

However, in 2009, Freeview channel Dave commissioned three new episodes of the programme to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the show.
And the episode gained record viewings for the channel when they aired over the Easter Break, attracting more viewers than BBC2 and Channel 4 combined.

Now it seems that the unprecedented success of the comeback show Red Dwarf: Back to Earth has led to a new series being commissioned bringing much loved characters including Lister, the Cat and Rimmer back to our screens.

But Charles - who currently plays Weatherfield taxi driver Lloyd Mullaney - is adamant that the new series will only work if it is as funny as the original show.

Speaking on Real Radio's breakfast show this week, Charles told presenters Ditchy and Salty: 'It did really well which was really quite weird because we all thought we were just doing it for a laugh.
'It got more viewers than BBC2 and Channel 4 combined on the night which is really good!

Screen star: Craig now appears in Coronation Street

'So they've just commissioned another series of Red Dwarf. We're gonna film at the end of November, December and January.'

Asked whether he thinks Red Dwarf still has a place on our screens, Charles said: 'Well yes only if it's still as funny as it used to be.

'We've gotta recapture the highlights like series 5 series six, that kind of stuff. If we can hit that mark then brilliant. There's no point doing it if it's a bit so-so.'
Liverpuddlian Charles confirmed he will be making a comeback as the leather jacket-wearing Lister in the new series of Red Dwarf, the first series of which first aired in 1988 and gained a cult following throughout the 90's.

When asked whether the Cat, played by Danny John-Jules, and Rimmer, played by Chris Barrie, would be making a return to our screens, Charles said: "Yep, the Cat's coming back!

'Chris Barrie was my favourite. He IS Rimmer. We're all quite like our characters - we're just caricatures of ourselves!'
But fans will be left guessing as to the plot of the new series as Craig has yet to reveal what will happen.

At the end of series eight, the spaceship was overtaken by a mystery virus and the crew all manage to abandoned ship, except for Rimmer who was left stranded alone to face Death - who he had earlier kicked in the groin.

Let's just hope it's better than that load of old arse Back to Earth turned out to be...

I didn't think that back to earth was that bad. There's room for improvement which they need and I think they appreciate how dedicated the fans were. With 2 series being commisioned, I think they have the room to make a good story and put good jokes in, instead of re-using old jokes and storyline. I'll wait and see when it airs.

I'm not sure about a new Red Dwarf, I'll probably do what I did when the new ones come out which was avoid them because I heard bad things

10 O'clock Live was passable, made me laugh a few times & I'm sure it was better than 99% of the other stuff on so shall watch it next week as well.

Spartacus - Gods Of The Arena. Starts back up again tonight I believe & should be interesting to see how a 'prequel' works. Stay tuned.

And as for Red Dwarf I think it could be brilliant again. I have always wanted to see a good conclusion, but Back To Earth was abysmal & if it happens they need to come up with something comparable to earlier series.
