The military woman with the red hair is terrifying. Always at 100% WAR mode.

She doesn't do the Barry Shitpeas thing, which makes her seem much more serious in comparison, I think. She's not pissing about.

True, I like Roma Agwaral and the young bloke who seems to have blagged his way on as an 'Adventurer' who definitely does the shitpeas thing.

That'll be Rob Bell, who generally seems to be labelled in the captions as 'engineer/adventurer', so he's got less of an excuse for the Shitpeas thing. Another one who does it is that American guy with glasses who's a bit camp and often seems to be really pleased with his performance like Roland Percival on Nosin' Aroun'.

I think we've discussed Four in a Bed in this thread before (possibly before it was split) but I've just noticed how often they have enormous suitcases even though they're only staying one night. The stays aren't consecutive afaik so it seems bizarre that they haul these vast (presumably half empty) bags up and down stairs. Helps with stealing the towels and light bulbs I suppose.

I've watched the Gogglebox LOCKDOWN episodes over the last couple of days. Weirdly comforting. A bit like sitting with old friends you don't like that much but enough to enjoy thier annoyances.

Still not keen on the new ones although my friend pointed out that the "new" ones have been on it for years.

They liked Afterlife which was disappointing but predictable.

I watched the US celeb version as more of a hate watch. Enjoyed Rob Lowe looking a bit uncomfortable when they had to watch a docu about Dennis Rodman's excess of the past. He styled it out, largely though.

FizzFam. Its YouTube but a total guilty pleasure caught myself getting more and more engrossed as I watched out the corner of my eye when my daughter turned in. Trendy vegans going about mundanities of life in Dubai  Spain, and england. Shopping, lentils, walking, stuffed peppers, pocket money, quorn. New baby called....guess.....Karma.

Oh and Georgie is a total MILF ‚̧

Closest thing to a time capsule we have. I've been a little disappointed some weeks in how little covid related media has featured but maybe they have had to consider the mental health of the people on it and not force them to watch endless amounts of it. Don't think of gogglebox as a guilty pleasure myself, not every family is a winner but it's still excellent imo. Mary's almost psychotic romance of The Past was particularly weird this week

Neighbours

Cant help myself still love it I record a whole weeks episodes and binge watch at Friday teatime with my Birdseye Chicken Kievs and McCain Chunky chips. I've long since ditched Eastenders and Corrie but I cannot and will not let neighbours go. I started to freak last couple of weeks as they reduced the episode output to 2 a week because COVID I think - back to normal now Phew

You can probably watch it at at least 1.5x without missing anything, like my mate used to do with the snooker.

By the time I've skipped the adverts and "previoulies" they're about 20mins per ep, so yeah more like 1hrs 40.

He's a successful lawyer and widower,  Sonia died of cancer, Susan has MS. Possible coupling very much off the cards. On a positive note Sky Mangle is back, as a married lesbian chief detective of police.

Ha Sky, she was pretty insufferable if I remember.  Has Izzy ever returned, she was lovely, but corrupted poor weak Karl.

She's a brilliant actor, nails both evil and angel. Evil at the moment is Miss Big in West Warritar Penitentiary, she's looking after Elly who been jailed for the manslaughter of Finn, who's mum blackmailed the judge so Elly got a custodial sentence against all legal advice.   

Sorry, Neighbours is a guilty pleasure of mine, like the Taylor Swift album 1989

Sky being a late in life bi-sexual is the makers righting a wrong from 15 years ago. Back then, they wanted to make her and Lana a couple, but they weren't allowed.

I'd love her to be in a spin off.

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist.
Anyone been watching it?  Just watched the season finale, then watched it again on +1 (and I already saw it 2 and a half week ago anyway.)  That final 7-minute scene done in one take was just beautiful.
