Friday Night With Jonathan Ross
14x24 (4/7/08 edition)
On which I discovered they're making a film spin-off from The Thick of It, called In the Loop.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks
19x05 (23/11/08 edition) [2nd watch]
Buzzcocks has been so much better since Simon Amstell took over as host (it's been almost two years now). In this episode, a squeaky-voiced pink-shirt-wearing Daniel Bedingfield seems to be trying to out-camp John Barrowman. Ha!

Would I Lie To You?
2x05 (8/8/08 edition)


Stardust (2007)
[#55 in 100 Films in a Year 2008]

Tropic Thunder Topples Dark Knight by Olly Richards
(from Empire Online)
"The Dark Knight may have slipped, but it only went as far as number two, taking another $16.8 million. That's pushed it to $471.5 million domestically, making it the second highest grossing film of all time, after Titanic. Yes, it's surpassed Star Wars, which has earned $461 million in its various releases."

Review of Stardust by Dan Jolin
(from Empire Online)
"Patchy but great fun, peppering plenty of black humour into a sweet if silly fairy-tale romance."

Russell Crowe To Play Bill Hicks? by Helen O'Hara
(from Empire Online)
A biopic of Bill Hicks? Could be cool. But really, why not just watch some recordings of his gigs?
