7x01 Gardens (extended repeat)
Much-belated first-showing for this extended repeat of an edition that first went out way back in November 2009.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Sport Relief 2010
[2nd half]
This is where recording it pays off, as the later-hours' schedule gradually fills up with repeats of sketches and appeal films, not to mention the inane babble of Fearne Cotton and Patrick Kielty.

this week on 100 Films

Just 2 new reviews were posted to 100 Films in a Year this week, and they were...

Lesbian Vampire Killers (2009)
the film fails to deliver on is its twin promises of raunch and horror. Aside from a couple of brief surgically-enhanced medieval boobs, a flash of knickers and the odd girl-on-girl kiss, the film’s sexy content is non-existent... The horror, meanwhile, is reduced to well-signposted jump scares and the odd bit of comical decapitation/melting

What About Bob? (1991)
The film hinges entirely on Murray and Dreyfuss, and both are excellent in their respective roles. Murray portrays Bob’s mental health struggles early on in a way that would garner wider praise for accuracy if this were a drama, showing the potential he’s only unleashed in more recent years to play straight roles

More next Sunday.
