Haha yeah, that was great. The best part was when his daughter answered "Name something you put in the fridge" with "milk"...

Is this where I come to talk about Mrs. Slocombe's pussy?

I just finished another 10 season marathon and every time I watch the lot they get better.

I worked for a guy who once had to make a phonecall to a "Mrs. Slocombe". He told me "I'm going to ask for 'Charlotte Slocombe'. And don't you start laughing, because that'll set me off."

Recently got our own version of Take Me Out in Ireland and if you think the girls on your one are a little rough, you've seen nothing yet. Still one of the most entertaining shows on tv though, it's even got a bit of a following in my group of friends. Friday night, pre-drinks in a mates house, episode of Take Me Out, then out on the town we go.

Since our version is hosted by "Paddy MacGuinness" I can only assume yours is hosted by "Trevor Gough-Calthorpe"

Ashes to Ashes will answer pretty much every question you have.

The first episode of A2A is too much like a parody, but I'd recommend you stick with it. It gets serious fast. I was always skeptical of how A2A would turn out and whether Alex could live up to Sam, and I think it came through.

Has anyone been watching the Little Crackers on Sky? They're on Sky Anytime if you've got a Sky+ HD box and they're pretty drat good. Victoria Wood's was the grittiest northernest one and I really loved David Baddiel's, Julian Barrats, Chris O'Dowds and Bill Bailey's.
Jo Brand and Kathy Burke had quite dull ones and I daren't touch Catherine Tate's.

It's all very much up to the person who made it what it's like though. The female ones are all about their childhood for some reason, Bill Bailey's is basically a 15 minute sketch and David Baddiel's is basically an anecdote.

I honestly couldn't make head nor tail of Julian Barratt's one. That's the only one I've seen.

Kid's show. Stop motion. I think some of the characters were dolls. This is the crucial part: there was an episode where one of the characters replaced their head with a stapler, and their arms with other things, and their body with something else, leaving them as this bizarre monster and (I think) causing their discarded body parts to morph back together.

It really sounds a lot like a nightmare but I swear it's real. Anyone remember this?

Not Morph? I only ask 'coz you said "morph".
