Good episode of Friday Night Dinner, felt like a set up to end the show. Really hope it isn't though.

Simon Bird apparently let slip in an interview that he wasn't doing any more, prompting Robert Popper to say that "He gets to say when FND is done, and if he wants to do more, there will be more."

That could possibly mean going forward without Adam, and i'm not sure that would really work within the family dynamic of the show.

Funnily enough after watching the first movie, I came home and watched K&P. Even back then it didnít hold up brilliantly, great loving soundtrack though. And the commentary was a good one, as you find out the clubs in Ibiza look so rough from the outside they had to make their own fascia for the movie.

Charlie B has said he's not working on any more Black Mirror and thinks any more is unlikely.

Why would it do that!?

Other people are producing entire series that seem like extensions of his shows (Upload, Devs, there's even a Korean show on Netflix about AR set in Spain), he can just sit back and see where everyone else goes with it all now.

Looks like it's the result of a three-way gone wrong (Brooker & Jones / Endemol / Netflix). Brooker & Jones have already setup a new company so I reckon we'll see Netflix fund a new Brooker project.

Yea. Honestly Inbetweeners did stop when it was done even if there's a second rubbish movie.

The Cunk interviews quite often leave me feeling a bit cold. Itís one thing to do the fake idiot interview thing if itís Ali G wasting the time of some prick, but Cunkís stuff is often some academic whoís probably all excited to get on the beeb to help drum up some funding for their field.

Still, good to have Wipe back, hopefully there will be a few more now thereís noises that Black Mirror is done for now.

I thought at first it was one of those interviews where they ask normal questions and then replace it with funny ones in the edit. But then he answered the spider question.

Al Campbell (Shitpeas) is more known for being a writer and producer than being a comedian, the only thing he's really appeared on telly as, is in fact Barry.

Obviously Diane Morgan is different but it was the Cunk character that gave the actress her big break.

It's a horrible show. It was horrible in s1 as well, but with the suggestion of redemption at the end. But I watched the first one or two episodes of S2 and no, it's just him being a tremendous prick to everyone while the rest of the cast tell him how lovely he actually is again.

The only good thing about that Gervais show is the supporting cast and any scenes they have that don't include Gervais, but Morgan is barely even in it.

The Bogey is a philosopher who knows

Maybe I'm not cynical enough and too generally naive, but I liked After Life alright. But it's definitely true that the supporting cast are much more watchable and sympathetic than Gervais' character. And it relies on people saying "stinkyhole" who you wouldn't expect to say "stinkyhole" a lot.

But the ending scene of Series 2 where he nearly commits suicide with a bunch of sleeping pills that had been clumsily mentioned earlier in the same episode and nowhere else in the show was incredibly hamfisted

Also liked the mini Phoneshop cast reunion. That show was great.

I never understood the nostalgia people had for Phoneshop. I remember sitting down to watch the first episode and wishing Iíd drank bleach instead it was so bad. Iím sure it mustíve improved, but still.

I'm not a stranger to grief, and I know its a complicated emotion and its something that you never truly get over, but there were multiple points in the second season where I was so bored of him saying the same stuff over and over again that I started thinking "alright mate your wife died, get over it yeah?"

I enjoyed After Life. Series 1 was better than Series 2 though, and he's on about doing a third, which would be a first for him.

I agree it's the supporting cast that make the show, though. David Earl is a seriously underrated actor and it was nice to see Paul Kaye get to be even more vile in Series 2.
