Dave's One Night Stand
3x01 Ardal O'Hanlon
I gave up on this last series due to not really finding it funny and an increasingly rubbish roster. This series had some good previews however, and there are good people on it too, so here we go.
It's still just "Live at the Apollo On Tour, With a Rubbish Sketch at the Start" though, isn't it.

Death in Paradise
1x04 Episode 4
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Junior Bake Off
Episode 10 (of 13)
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Romanzo Criminale
1x02 Episode 2
Gonna need to watch this more often than once a week if I want to catch up with Sky Arts' airings (and I do) (and they're on episode eight).

1x05 Codename: Blood
After a run of great episodes, this wasn't so hot. Some clever movie spoofs in there, but a lot of it just felt like being overly cruel to poor Tim. Perhaps if he uses his Glock to mortally wound that police officer chap in the next episode, that might redeem this one a bit...

A daily dose of sci-fi - Day 9

No.1 sci-fi hottie

This is not the kind of thing I would usually blog about, obviously, but it's on the list, so, I guess, here we are.

The problem is compounded by the fact that one person's "hottie" is another's "ew, really?!" (and vice versa, of course), and no one wants the latter reaction.

I said I'd need to avoid picking too much Doctor Who, but clearly I need to be wary of Hitchhiker's too.

Though, while I've mentioned it a few times, this is only the third I've actually chosen it. So there.

And in fairness, I haven't really picked Trillian, I've picked Zooey Deschanel, who's only contribution to sci-fi is that one. (And The Happening, but who wants to mention that?) So it does feel like kind of a cop-out, what with her not being that well known for her sci-fi-y role, whereas you kinda think this ought to be going to someone who is at least largely, if not wholly, known for their contribution to sci-fi.

But c'mon, it's only the "hottie" "award" -- the "contribution" being assessed here isn't intellectual, is it?

So hush, it's done now, let's all just move on.
