Things we’ve just discovered on old-school linear television (alright, Grandad) this lunchtime when my internet went down:
- The new series of Bother’s Bar surprise fave I’ll Get This started last week and continues on Tuesday nights at 10pm.
- I watched Curiosity for the first time, currently being repeated on BBC2 at 1pm. Antiques not really my thing (although I love an auction, obviously), but thought this was quite a neat show – like an Antiques Crystal Maze (Paul Martin’s got the personality to carry it off, and he even has Richard O’ Brien style asides to the camera, mainly informational, some fun) as people go into themed rooms and complete pricing/dating/odd one out style challenges. Not must watch by any means, but I absolutely appreciate what they’ve tried to do within the confines of a BBC daytime budget. And Baxter (played by Maggie) probably the best gameshow dog since The One Off The Great Antiques Hunt with Jilly Goolden.
Edit: it sounds like there was a Taskmaster coming soon advert after Countdown today (although it can’t be that soon, surely?). With apologies for comment jumping on this post:
And finally (with all these tweets this feels like a Daily Express article):
So there we are.
