Today's episode of Bleak Expectations made up for a disappointing Clare in the Community.

What is strange is how Pip Bin grew up to be a grumpy Sir Phillip Bin. Seriously he was just so innocent in his youth.

Part of the gag, methinks.

Clare was terrible last night. The. Wedding disaster is past cliche and this wasn't a particularly good example of it. I will however allow the singing of the favourite Billy Brag song as the best joke of a very average bunch.
Mr and Mrs Smith. The pilot was so dire that not even the endorsement of sitcom geek persuades me to return to it.
Where is Bleak lurking? I'd like to try it but can never find it.
Oh well, back to the Goons.

I was on a train listening to it on a not very good radio, but I thought it was pretty decent. Maybe not the best of the series, but still ticking all the right boxes.

As for Mr and Mrs Smith, it had grown on me by the end of the series. It was still a painfully unoriginal grown-in-the-bag Radio 4 sitcom, and Will Smith's ubergeek act is getting a bit tired, but it had it's moments.

The less said about Everyone Quite Likes Justin the better. Glad it's over, hope it doesn't come back.

Will Smith pointed out that the whole terrorist plot relied entirely on the aeroplanes not being able to land without the guidance system because of the blizzard, which is something they could never have predicted happening :D

He!

My reaction upon switching my radio on at 6:30 last night was more "oh for Gods sake not the sodding now show "

Literally hate it

Listened to the Pub Olympics which was on Radio 2.

It was alright but all I got out of it was that the 1900 Paris Olympics was a weird event.
