    The only good thing about Little Britian is the Tom Baker narration, the rest is poor poor comedy.

    Green Wing is good though, I may watch that.

    And Draclua, hmmm maybe, but I doubt it will be any good

    Not seen Hogfather yet on Sky One (though I used the excellent multi-start after I missed the show by two hours lol). Hope it's good, did anyone see it?

    I have now watched Firefly, the whole series and Serenity again. Loved it, though the cowboy stuff sometimes made me a little not sure - how many times can you see men on horses wearing 19thc gear and remember you are in the future - though the documentary clears that up - that past is future and the whole American/Chinese superpower thing. Though I think it would have been nice to see all that info in the early episodes than in the feature film, and the deleted scene where the doc looks up what Serenity was named after could have stayed (not deleted). But the style and humour kept me smiling all the way through, even Babylon 5 had hit and miss episodes, Firefly had a good run.

    And so The Vicar of Dibley goes out an a tremendous low. What a humourless, horrifically misjudged, hour of television.

    I recommend Battlestar Galactica. Seen ads for it on Sky One so it must be back soon. One of the best shows on tele despite the (initially) cliché characters. Bloody good stuff.

    I agree the end of Vicar of Dibley was not that great.

    lol @ the Daleks in the church though.



    I thought The Sarah Jane Adventures was quite good. It was a lot more like Dr Who then Torchwood. And K9 is cool.

    The adaptation of The Wind in the Willows was a lot of fun. The whole cast potrayed the characters really well.

    Matt Lucas was excellent as Toad.

    That he was.
    Bob Hoskins was also excellent as Badger.

    BBC1 7pm all week

    Expedition Borneo

    Wildlife camera crew specialists and sciency type go into never before visited canyon in the Borneo Rainforrest to look for rare and new species so as to try to get the area protected status.


    Highlight of last night was hunting for scorpions using a UV torch and yellow glasses (ala CSI) and finding one huge nasty git behind the bogroll in the crapper

    I think they find an Elephant in tonight's show.
    That biting Centipede was a scarey looking bug [face_worried]

    I wonder if they'll ever find that Leopard.
