    Episode 320 - On The Up

    Dennis Waterman is more than the "write-da-feem-choon-sing-da-feem-choon" caricature Little Britain made him out to be in On The Up, in which the theme tune was... Oh. Never mind.

    Episode 319 - Home James

    This week we're watching Home James, one of the worst things Jim Davidson ever committed to film, including his dressing gown-clad old lady rant in his kitchen. Part one of our tenuous sitcom gingology.

    Episode 318 - Windfalls

    Leaves come to life and have terrifying felt tip faces in Windfalls, a horrible stop-motion TV show that probably didn't even exist.

    Episode 317 - Noggin The Nog

    We're supposed to be watching Noggin the Nog, but anyone who's listened before knows there's "Norway" we'll stay on topic, especially when Viking Beadle's About...

My Review

I am writing a review. It didn't specify it had to be about this podcast so... the Remington smooth & silky battery operated ladyshaver.
Apparently produces perfectly smooth skin, not so, liars. Doesn't shave my skin closely and I am a lady and everything. It's pink because I'm a girl, that's how I know it's for me. Waste your money if you want.

Forever a wheeler

This podcast makes Mondays worth getting up for! Mark and Martyn kick Mondays to bits with their comedy take on nostalgic tv shows and cartoons. Laugh out loud funny, I never miss an episode. They are great guys too but be careful they don’t start drinking your nutrients.
