Thanks to iplayer I've got addicted to a comedy called 'The Kahns' about a Pakistani family from the Birmingham and 'Who do you think you are?' a show traces the genealogy of famous people, really interesting if you like family history stuff.

A Touch of Cloth, that two parter by Charlie Brooker....so very weird, little OTT in parts, but quite amusing all the same and worth a punt if you like his stuff.

First episode of Trollied was okay, but felt a little flat and cold compared to the last series, hoping it warms up again.

I've read some mixed reviews on that and a lot of people saying it's really bad...so don't know what to think...probably will give it a go, but with so many new shows starting, hard to find the time to bother....hope it gets a few episodes to warm up though.

Haha, yes it is a bit cheesy but it's so different to anything on over here sitcom wise, I did get sucked in for an hour.

We ended up watching it this evening....wasn't to impressed with it, just thought the main character and daughter were really irritating...but there was a few amusing moments.

The mosque chap was the waster son from that dentist show, which threw me a little

Also, I've just started watching Parade's End, which is an Edwardian period drama. Plus Who do you think you are? is back on, as is Casualty.

I started to watch Parade's End but I kept thinking that guy shouldn't be in this because he's Sherlock Holmes.

Thought the last episode of The Last Weekend was a little strange. Mother's Son looks interesting...is showing tomorrow and Tuesday. What's her face from Spooks is in it.

Parade's End looks like it might be a rehashing of Downtown Abbey maybe?
Netflix has the 5th season of Doc Martin which I love.

I'm surprised that Casualty is still fun, it's so daft and stupid, but I still enjoy watching it....not to sure about the new location though, that seems sacrilegious, but am liking the new characters.

Parade's End is the the beebs answer to Downton and their big hope for a period drama.

I didn't really rate the first episode, but we've not got around to watching the second one yet, have it lined up and the previous for it did look better, but the characters just seemed very meh to begin with.
