Rovers. Footy comedy , cast from the Royle Family, written at least in part by Dopey Dave (Craig Cash..he has aged!), Sue Johnston. Also Kev and his brother from Derek- (another )

This may well not appeal to everybody but I think that it is well written, cast is good and very British.... Me a Southerner married to a Manc.... Snoop has clearly brainwashed me

Give both programmes a go, I like them both

Back to Mum.

I watched the last one last night. There's a second series coming.

Not sure how much more they can get out of it.

But Michael's longing looks. Heartbreaking.

If you like a bit of historical realism then the new series of the Musketeers is on now. And, on Thursday on BBC 4, Bettany Hughes is apparently going to explore the mind of Friedrich Nietzsche in an hour.

What? It's brilliant! As long as they choose new characters carefully...it could run for years IMO.

Can't wait until Michael accidentally brushes against Mum's breast or walks into bathroom while she's coming out of the shower.

That statement might appear a little odd to anyone who hasn't watch the programme

Too many of the characters have something more than a bit annoying about them for it to run and run, I reckon.

Pauline is ridiculously obnoxious, no one would normally tolerate someone like that for more than a week . Kelly is as thick as they come but her heart is in the right place.

Yes, and very good it is too...that new D'Artagnan can swash my buckles any time he might wish to! Actually, a very good fun romp with lots of action, most enjoyable.

Has anyone watched GoggleBox Sprogs ? I watched the first episode and the three Welsh kids are so sweet. I don't like the adult one, but the kids one is fun.
