24 Hour Panel People
Episode 2 (of 5)
A very game-show-y episode, in some cases a bit too cut-down. Oh well.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

How TV Ruined Your Life
1x06 Knowledge [final episode]
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

$#*! My Dad Says
1x01 Pilot
Hm, well, we'll see.
[Watch it (again) on Demand 5.]

1x03 Episode 3
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Stand Up for the Week
2x01 (12/3/11 edition)
Slightly surprised to see this back. Still not sure if I like it or not.
Though Micky Flanagan's material is typically out of date. A routine about Gok Wan? Really? His show started five years ago and Flanagan begins, "there's this guy on TV now called Gok Wan". Ugh.
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

Twenty Twelve
1x01 Episode 1
As it turned out, very topical. They couldn't've asked for more.
