00:02:47   sorts of other networks as well and I I [TS]

00:02:50   my plan tonight was really that we were [TS]

00:02:52   just kind of go around in something [TS]

00:02:53   that's not quite a draft but really it's [TS]

00:02:55   more of a go around and tell me a thing [TS]

00:02:56   that you like which it sort of a draft [TS]

00:02:59   but not there's no point to it other [TS]

00:03:01   than to talk about things we like and i [TS]

00:03:03   just also want to stipulate for all of [TS]

00:03:05   those people who are very knowledgeable [TS]

00:03:06   about british television that it is [TS]

00:03:09   official incomparable policy that all [TS]

00:03:11   british television news from the BBC ITV [TS]

00:03:15   channel for Sky TV BBC when we say that [TS]

00:03:19   it's on the BBC we mean it's on British [TS]

00:03:21   television i know that there it's not [TS]

00:03:23   all on the BBC I don't care [TS]

00:03:25   as far as I'm concerned channel for his [TS]

00:03:27   BBC channel for ITV BBC ITV just all BBC [TS]

00:03:32   to me [TS]

00:03:33   I mean I just don't care it's all [TS]

00:03:35   because the beat it's all bc i'm an ugly [TS]

00:03:37   American and it's all on the BBC there's [TS]

00:03:39   one channel in the UK and only broadcast [TS]

00:03:40   good things all the embarrassing things [TS]

00:03:43   that they don't export don't exist they [TS]

00:03:45   don't exist it's all good stuff and it's [TS]

00:03:47   only on the BBC which airs roughly from [TS]

00:03:50   about 10 am-2 about 7pm and then they go [TS]

00:03:53   off the air and there's a test pattern [TS]

00:03:54   that is my my crazy American view of [TS]

00:03:57   british television but it's all good [TS]

00:03:59   when it's on the air it's all good and [TS]

00:04:00   then they go off and they have a little [TS]

00:04:01   sign off the Queen comes on live from [TS]

00:04:04   her palace and waves goodnight and tucks [TS]

00:04:06   everybody and and then they go off the [TS]

00:04:09   air and that's it as i am currently in [TS]

00:04:11   the Commonwealth right now I'm shaking [TS]

00:04:13   you mr. Snell sure enough it will see [TS]

00:04:16   where we're here we're here to we're [TS]

00:04:18   here to give us much entertainment as [TS]

00:04:19   possible to those are friends of us [TS]

00:04:21   across the pond and yeah we would be [TS]

00:04:22   disappointing them if we deny them the [TS]

00:04:24   opportunity to say oh you stupid gets [TS]

00:04:26   the Incas England Scotland Scotland [TS]

00:04:29   Wales as whales and there's more than [TS]

00:04:31   one TV channel you know and course you [TS]

00:04:33   would say it no I of damn i missed [TS]

00:04:35   opportunity i should have done that in a [TS]

00:04:36   really bad British accent so you can [TS]

00:04:38   make fun of how Americans try to have [TS]

00:04:40   like one accent for all of great britain [TS]

00:04:42   when there's actually regionals but this [TS]

00:04:44   is our gift to you make fun of us that [TS]

00:04:46   we're Americans we think that we know [TS]

00:04:47   what we know and so trying to learn what [TS]

00:04:49   we don't know why we're north americans [TS]

00:04:52   I have no idea what we're talking about [TS]

00:04:53   i just want this is our disclaimer [TS]

00:04:55   portion which is because i know we're [TS]

00:04:56   gonna get responses from knowledgeable [TS]

00:04:58   English people who are gonna say boy you [TS]

00:05:00   guys have no idea what you're talking [TS]

00:05:02   about [TS]

00:05:02   staz agreed and now on with the show [TS]

00:05:06   what what do North Americans like about [TS]

00:05:10   british television things that things [TS]

00:05:12   that we think that our listeners should [TS]

00:05:13   seek out you might not know about [TS]

00:05:14   because they're not products of the [TS]

00:05:16   Hollywood television system but they [TS]

00:05:18   came to us from a cut across the pond [TS]

00:05:20   and by golly where they wouldn't say by [TS]

00:05:23   golly over there I don't know what they [TS]

00:05:24   would say but you know right key [TS]

00:05:27   I don't know they you should watch them [TS]

00:05:29   it's a fact right common written ok a [TS]

00:05:34   holy they'd say no they're not sailors [TS]

00:05:36   what is that anyway so I thought I'd go [TS]

00:05:39   round and see if you've got a shows that [TS]

00:05:41   you would like to recommend to our great [TS]

00:05:45   and comfortable worldwide listenership [TS]

00:05:46   that are are great and they're from [TS]

00:05:48   England and let's start with Monty do [TS]

00:05:50   you have a suggestion for us [TS]

00:05:52   I i would like to recommend kind of a [TS]

00:05:54   cluster of really brilliant political [TS]

00:05:57   satires starting with Yes Minister which [TS]

00:06:01   aired in the nineteen eighties was about [TS]

00:06:05   Jim hacker a minister of parliament [TS]

00:06:08   who's pretty much useless and feeble and [TS]

00:06:12   sir Humphrey Appleby played by the great [TS]

00:06:14   Nigel Hawthorne who was his bureaucrat [TS]

00:06:19   minder who kind of controlled him and [TS]

00:06:23   forced him to do what the bureaucracy [TS]

00:06:24   wanted not what the voters wanted they [TS]

00:06:27   were joined by Derek fouls as Bernard [TS]

00:06:30   Willie and it was a really entertaining [TS]

00:06:33   show you then turned into Yes Prime [TS]

00:06:36   Minister when Jim hacker somehow became [TS]

00:06:38   prime minister and spiritually I'm going [TS]

00:06:44   to claim it led to a great show called [TS]

00:06:46   the thick of it [TS]

00:06:47   ahh yes whoo good created by armando [TS]

00:06:52   iannucci mostly starring peter capaldi [TS]

00:06:55   who is going to be a doctor of some sort [TS]

00:06:58   on an upcoming television show [TS]

00:06:59   yes as [TS]

00:07:02   the whip for the prime minister who [TS]

00:07:04   curses and bullies at lesser ministers [TS]

00:07:08   up and taken together these three shows [TS]

00:07:12   Yes Minister Yes Prime Minister and the [TS]

00:07:14   thick of it show what politics is [TS]

00:07:16   actually like and why you shouldn't [TS]

00:07:18   expect much out of your politicians I i [TS]

00:07:22   give you i I've seen some episodes of [TS]

00:07:23   yes minister and and Hardy agreement on [TS]

00:07:27   the thick of it which I've been watching [TS]

00:07:29   because of Peter Capaldi because i heard [TS]

00:07:31   so many great things about it and he was [TS]

00:07:33   cast as a doctor of some sort and i [TS]

00:07:35   thought i would go back and watch him [TS]

00:07:36   and it's also if you've seen the HBO [TS]

00:07:38   series veep that is that is largely the [TS]

00:07:41   American extension with the same writers [TS]

00:07:44   i believe almost entirely of the the [TS]

00:07:47   thick of it pivots on hulu plus you can [TS]

00:07:49   you can see their fear in the US and [TS]

00:07:51   it's great and so you know quality is [TS]

00:07:53   great as this evening operative [TS]

00:07:56   political operative but also some of the [TS]

00:07:58   hapless members of parliament to work [TS]

00:08:00   whoo-hoo he chews up and spits out over [TS]

00:08:02   the course of various seasons are so [TS]

00:08:04   wonderful as they are terrible and bad [TS]

00:08:07   at their jobs and destroyed that it's a [TS]

00:08:09   very funny show and I'd like to give a [TS]

00:08:11   special note for the book versions of [TS]

00:08:14   yes minister and yes prime minister [TS]

00:08:15   which are practically unique in the [TS]

00:08:18   world of book adaptations of television [TS]

00:08:22   shows because they might be better than [TS]

00:08:24   the show instead of just taking the [TS]

00:08:26   scripts and printing them [TS]

00:08:27   the books are in the form of the diaries [TS]

00:08:31   of the characters so you get extra [TS]

00:08:35   thoughts you get more framing devices [TS]

00:08:37   and even if you haven't watched the show [TS]

00:08:40   you can sit down with the book of Yes [TS]

00:08:42   Prime Minister and really really enjoy [TS]

00:08:45   yourself [TS]

00:08:46   great those are great choices [TS]

00:08:50   yeah pic of it is a that wasn't that was [TS]

00:08:53   a natural i don't know if anybody else [TS]

00:08:54   want to jump it jump in and say things [TS]

00:08:56   about the thick of it that is [TS]

00:08:57   such-and-such a hilarious and crazy show [TS]

00:09:01   is definitely worth watching especially [TS]

00:09:02   if you're excited about Peter Capaldi [TS]

00:09:05   being on Doctor Who because then you [TS]

00:09:08   when you see him and Doctor Who you'll [TS]

00:09:09   say wow he's not swearing nearly as much [TS]

00:09:11   David [TS]

00:09:15   Laura what do you have for us well i'm [TS]

00:09:19   going to pick one of my very favorite [TS]

00:09:21   panel shows qi which stands for quite [TS]

00:09:26   interesting i came across it by accident [TS]

00:09:29   years and years ago just because it's [TS]

00:09:33   hosted by stephen fry and I mean hey [TS]

00:09:36   Stephen Fry and it's it's a wonderful [TS]

00:09:39   show was created by John Lloyd who if [TS]

00:09:42   you know anything about british comedy [TS]

00:09:44   in the last 35 years you know he was [TS]

00:09:48   instrumental in Hitchhiker's Guide in [TS]

00:09:50   the radio and then in the TV version he [TS]

00:09:53   co-wrote the deeper meaning of lift with [TS]

00:09:56   douglas adams he is sort of shepherded a [TS]

00:10:01   lot of comedy over the years and he [TS]

00:10:04   wanted to do this show called Qi where [TS]

00:10:07   you have four panelists mostly comedians [TS]

00:10:11   sometimes actors sometimes just [TS]

00:10:13   prominent people in Britain and he asks [TS]

00:10:17   them questions that are blindingly [TS]

00:10:20   obvious and someone gives the blindingly [TS]

00:10:23   obvious answer and a klaxon goes off and [TS]

00:10:25   all the lights flash and then he [TS]

00:10:27   explains why the obvious answer is [TS]

00:10:29   completely wrong and it's another one of [TS]

00:10:32   the shows where the points don't matter [TS]

00:10:33   but you get points you get points if you [TS]

00:10:37   get a the right answer you get points if [TS]

00:10:39   you have an interesting or funny answer [TS]

00:10:42   and really it's not about points it's [TS]

00:10:45   not about even the comedy so much for [TS]

00:10:48   sharing these really really bizarre [TS]

00:10:50   things that you thought you knew and you [TS]

00:10:52   didn't and it's just it's it's hilarious [TS]

00:10:56   and I think they're up to each season is [TS]

00:11:00   themed on a letter each series i'm sorry [TS]

00:11:02   series [TS]

00:11:03   yes we're proper British right now so [TS]

00:11:05   it's a series i think they're up to [TS]

00:11:09   l think L is the next series and it's [TS]

00:11:14   just it's a lot of fun and the more i [TS]

00:11:16   watched it the more I started saying why [TS]

00:11:19   isn't this on over here and actually [TS]

00:11:21   contacted john lawrence said you know [TS]

00:11:24   i'm i'm dying to watch this legally and [TS]

00:11:27   and and he said [TS]

00:11:29   we've been trying for years nobody will [TS]

00:11:32   put it on in America because they all [TS]

00:11:33   say it's too intelligent a spa too [TS]

00:11:36   intelligent for American audiences so [TS]

00:11:39   but there are some episodes on hulu [TS]

00:11:42   there are many more in illicit pockets [TS]

00:11:47   of available on the internet on the [TS]

00:11:50   internet [TS]

00:11:51   yes but if you are able to access the [TS]

00:11:54   BBC iplayer on the web or or the iplayer [TS]

00:11:57   app you can watch it when it's running [TS]

00:12:00   current episode it is just just a lot of [TS]

00:12:06   fun [TS]

00:12:07   alright great qi Erica what about you [TS]

00:12:13   what do you have for us [TS]

00:12:14   doctor-who stipulated Doctor Who itself [TS]

00:12:18   is stipulated yes [TS]

00:12:20   however I need to fulfill my could [TS]

00:12:24   contractual obligation to cover the [TS]

00:12:27   Doctor Who quotient and since you [TS]

00:12:28   already took that off the table and I'm [TS]

00:12:30   gonna pull a little bit of a monte here [TS]

00:12:32   and put some spiritual siblings together [TS]

00:12:34   as my sort of first pick and pick the [TS]

00:12:37   two good spin-offs of Doctor Who no that [TS]

00:12:41   is not canine company you got his canine [TS]

00:12:43   company and I don't even know what the [TS]

00:12:46   the leela adventures [TS]

00:12:48   no go ahead instead I'm instead I'm [TS]

00:12:52   gonna be unusual and i'm going to pick [TS]

00:12:54   Torchwood and the sarah jane adventures [TS]

00:12:56   and and I I like putting the two of them [TS]

00:12:59   together like this because there's a [TS]

00:13:01   little bit of something for everybody if [TS]

00:13:02   you like the sort of harder-edged you [TS]

00:13:05   know adult type thing that would be [TS]

00:13:07   Torchwood the first two seasons of which [TS]

00:13:10   are sometimes adult just for the sake of [TS]

00:13:13   being adults it feels like but I think [TS]

00:13:16   at the same time they are still fun [TS]

00:13:19   there's there's a light heartedness to [TS]

00:13:21   the first couple seasons that I really [TS]

00:13:23   enjoy [TS]

00:13:24   excuse me series is that I really enjoy [TS]

00:13:27   and then the third series is actually [TS]

00:13:31   was kind of a miniseries it's just five [TS]

00:13:33   episodes one day after the next after [TS]

00:13:35   the next and it was called chilled [TS]

00:13:36   tortured children of earth and it is i [TS]

00:13:39   think still if my favorite five consent [TS]

00:13:43   cute of episodes of television ever but [TS]

00:13:46   it is insanely dark it is really really [TS]

00:13:49   really dark it's about it [TS]

00:13:51   the children and in bad things happen to [TS]

00:13:54   these children also Peter Capaldi is [TS]

00:13:56   Annette and it's doesn't go well doesn't [TS]

00:13:59   go well for better quality he is [TS]

00:14:01   fantastic you that is the reason I mean [TS]

00:14:04   I love the thick of it but I didn't seek [TS]

00:14:05   that out until after I knew he was cast [TS]

00:14:08   so the Torchwood children of earth is [TS]

00:14:10   the reason that i was so excited to see [TS]

00:14:12   him come in and play the doctor because [TS]

00:14:14   I I he has such amazing range and [TS]

00:14:17   ability to emote and there was also a [TS]

00:14:19   fourth series of torchwood called [TS]

00:14:21   miracle day but the less said about that [TS]

00:14:22   the better I thinking [TS]

00:14:24   so bad yeah but if you are if you fear [TS]

00:14:27   to the other side you just you really [TS]

00:14:29   kind of like things that are still good [TS]

00:14:31   storytelling still very exciting [TS]

00:14:33   adventure but a little bit more on the [TS]

00:14:35   light-hearted chill childish kind of [TS]

00:14:39   side that would be the sarah jane [TS]

00:14:40   adventures which is the spin-off [TS]

00:14:42   starring list Laden who played the [TS]

00:14:45   lovely sarah jane who was one of my [TS]

00:14:47   favorite companions from the age of five [TS]

00:14:49   on up and she teams up with some middle [TS]

00:14:53   school children to save the earth [TS]

00:14:55   repeatedly from monsters and aliens and [TS]

00:14:59   that sort of thing and and i know some [TS]

00:15:01   people aren't a big fan of it simply [TS]

00:15:03   because it's aimed at kids so there's [TS]

00:15:05   definitely not as much of a hard edge [TS]

00:15:07   but if that kind of thing doesn't bother [TS]

00:15:09   you it's still really great storytelling [TS]

00:15:11   and it's very much like I would say that [TS]

00:15:14   it's more like Doctor Who and Torchwood [TS]

00:15:16   is i would say the sarah jane adventures [TS]

00:15:17   is is Doctor Who light whereas Torchwood [TS]

00:15:20   is it's just sort of its only thing that [TS]

00:15:23   happens to 10 gently take place in the [TS]

00:15:25   Doctor Who universe [TS]

00:15:26   I think they're both great that's a [TS]

00:15:28   surgeon adventures is actually a lot [TS]

00:15:29   like the old classic Doctor Who if it [TS]

00:15:31   was on today it is it is definitely [TS]

00:15:33   geared towards children it's the short [TS]

00:15:35   25-minute multi-unit two-part episodes [TS]

00:15:37   that they are two parts stories that [TS]

00:15:39   they tell and and it's definitely kids [TS]

00:15:41   show but it's definitely got it sweet [TS]

00:15:44   it's it's it's a lot of fun and it's a [TS]

00:15:46   shame because was Slayton passed away [TS]

00:15:48   and they they didn't get a chance to [TS]

00:15:49   sort of properly wrap it up but it's a [TS]

00:15:52   lot of fun i actually have to admit [TS]

00:15:54   there were there are only a few episodes [TS]

00:15:56   it's in the final season and i have not [TS]

00:15:59   watched them yet because I just can't [TS]

00:16:00   bring myself to do it because once that [TS]

00:16:02   once they're done they're done now [TS]

00:16:03   whereas Torchwood yeah you're totally [TS]

00:16:05   right about that last season of [TS]

00:16:07   torchwood series of torchwood whatever [TS]

00:16:08   was in the American co-production we [TS]

00:16:11   call the season it wasn't it wasn't good [TS]

00:16:14   children / I don't really like the end I [TS]

00:16:15   thought the last episode kinda fell [TS]

00:16:17   apart but those first four episodes are [TS]

00:16:18   amazingly good so it's a very x-files [TS]

00:16:22   kind of show it's like x-files meets dr. [TS]

00:16:24   who and it is got it does have some [TS]

00:16:26   really funny moments too [TS]

00:16:28   yeah and I great i do agree that the [TS]

00:16:30   last the end of it was the weak the weak [TS]

00:16:32   point but i still liked it enough like [TS]

00:16:35   they were the rest of it enough that i [TS]

00:16:36   was kind of still coasting on the the [TS]

00:16:37   top of that wave always got mad at the [TS]

00:16:40   people on Torchwood because there's a [TS]

00:16:41   there a tiny team they're charged with [TS]

00:16:43   practically protecting the entire planet [TS]

00:16:45   and they spent so much time sleeping [TS]

00:16:48   with each other and pointin guns at each [TS]

00:16:49   other at the leading professional [TS]

00:16:51   organization i've ever seen [TS]

00:16:53   there is so dysfunctional it's [TS]

00:16:55   ridiculous they're just all bad at their [TS]

00:16:57   jobs but it's fun to watch [TS]

00:17:00   get it together people you got to save [TS]

00:17:01   the world no time for this stuff [TS]

00:17:03   oh that's all they do is have time for [TS]

00:17:05   that stuff [TS]

00:17:06   ah alright Andy it's your turn what do [TS]

00:17:08   you have for us [TS]

00:17:09   I just finished binge-watching foyle's [TS]

00:17:13   war and there was one of those series [TS]

00:17:15   where I realized that wow how dumb I am [TS]

00:17:18   I could have been watching this series [TS]

00:17:19   as early as like 10 years ago but don't [TS]

00:17:22   be me i only discovered it about 3-4 [TS]

00:17:24   weeks ago [TS]

00:17:25   it's a really great mystery show and [TS]

00:17:29   because of the context of where the [TS]

00:17:31   stories take place it takes place in [TS]

00:17:32   1940 nineteen forties England [TS]

00:17:35   specifically starts like 19 for the [TS]

00:17:38   first three starts in 1940 the very [TS]

00:17:40   start of the war at the end the Chief [TS]

00:17:44   Superintendent Foyle is of course in [TS]

00:17:46   charge of you know investigating murders [TS]

00:17:48   that are happening in this English [TS]

00:17:50   Channel facing town at a time when [TS]

00:17:53   regular policing is kind of taking a [TS]

00:17:57   back burner to just defending the nation [TS]

00:17:59   against and a german invasion that [TS]

00:18:02   everyone believes is going to happen [TS]

00:18:03   anytime now like in the very first [TS]

00:18:05   series things are so tense that he's [TS]

00:18:07   investigate he's investigating a murder [TS]

00:18:09   and he's talking to [TS]

00:18:10   someone who's basically knows that ok i [TS]

00:18:12   know that you're involved in this sum [TS]

00:18:13   here and you need copper will cooperate [TS]

00:18:15   with me and he says flat-out well look [TS]

00:18:17   everybody knows that like the german [TS]

00:18:19   invasion is on there going to be here in [TS]

00:18:21   four days [TS]

00:18:22   by that time your you will have been [TS]

00:18:24   taken out and shot and I think I can do [TS]

00:18:26   it I can have a better time dealing with [TS]

00:18:28   whatever German they have running the [TS]

00:18:29   town in four days time so I'm not gonna [TS]

00:18:31   help you do squat [TS]

00:18:33   it's so nicely done not only because of [TS]

00:18:36   this sort of disconnect of how that he [TS]

00:18:39   can know exactly who's done it but maybe [TS]

00:18:41   someone in the military is going to come [TS]

00:18:43   down and say yeah but he's in he's real [TS]

00:18:45   this person who's been who you did [TS]

00:18:48   review accused of racketeering he really [TS]

00:18:51   is very important in getting things [TS]

00:18:52   moving from point A to point B so we're [TS]

00:18:54   gonna have to ask you not to prosecute [TS]

00:18:56   him and rather than do this really lame [TS]

00:19:00   thing where he finds a way to subvert [TS]

00:19:01   all that he just has to know [TS]

00:19:03   yes to eat dirt and and take it because [TS]

00:19:05   of the times even though he's [TS]

00:19:07   desperately unhappy with the way things [TS]

00:19:08   are going in a broader sense i love the [TS]

00:19:11   fact that these are 90 minute episodes [TS]

00:19:13   they remind me a lot of colombo in that [TS]

00:19:16   there's so much there so there's so much [TS]

00:19:18   time to deal with every episode that [TS]

00:19:21   they have time to do lots of little [TS]

00:19:23   character scenes that you know that not [TS]

00:19:24   every scene has to do with the with the [TS]

00:19:26   solving of the crime they can just have [TS]

00:19:29   have a 10-minute spread across an hour [TS]

00:19:31   about how hungry this person is somehow [TS]

00:19:34   whether that when a leg when the [TS]

00:19:37   racketeer ever record ring is broken up [TS]

00:19:40   and there is a fully dressed turkey [TS]

00:19:42   that's been seized as evidence and [TS]

00:19:45   everybody's looking at this turkey in [TS]

00:19:47   the evidence Locker calculating the [TS]

00:19:49   amount of time is going to how many days [TS]

00:19:51   have to go by before it will be so [TS]

00:19:52   spoiled that it can't be and trying to [TS]

00:19:55   work on the Sunfoil as I look you can we [TS]

00:19:57   just like take a picture of it and that [TS]

00:19:59   will be the evidence that can we just [TS]

00:20:00   eat that it's a shame to let this turkey [TS]

00:20:02   Drive we've haven't had this kind of [TS]

00:20:04   fresh degree in Indian years and the [TS]

00:20:06   other great thing is especially when [TS]

00:20:08   you're talking about navigating a [TS]

00:20:09   mystery when you have a when you have a [TS]

00:20:12   show like like house or monk you know [TS]

00:20:15   that your you have so much experience [TS]

00:20:17   with these little 42-minute dramas that [TS]

00:20:19   you know that if the detective like [TS]

00:20:22   happens to meet so if they happen [TS]

00:20:24   to have a conversation with a custodian [TS]

00:20:27   at the high school where the murder [TS]

00:20:28   happened and this person has more than [TS]

00:20:30   three lines you know that ok they would [TS]

00:20:33   not have wasted two and a half minutes [TS]

00:20:34   our conversation with this guy who just [TS]

00:20:36   added you just as all well you know i'm [TS]

00:20:38   i'm just here on tuesdays and wednesdays [TS]

00:20:40   I've just here i'm just old newly the [TS]

00:20:42   broom Smith don't mind me you know that [TS]

00:20:44   he's going to be either the key witness [TS]

00:20:45   or he's the guy who did it but that's [TS]

00:20:47   the law of the economy of characters [TS]

00:20:48   that's a classic [TS]

00:20:50   so you think there's a lot of [TS]

00:20:51   disorientation there's a lot of freedom [TS]

00:20:53   to do all kinds of other things and the [TS]

00:20:55   last thing is that i love these shows [TS]

00:20:57   that give you sort of a backdoor [TS]

00:20:58   education on history or a certain time [TS]

00:21:01   now this isn't here to teach history but [TS]

00:21:03   nonetheless you know there's a there's a [TS]

00:21:05   just a street scene which everybody is [TS]

00:21:07   in period dress they're walking down the [TS]

00:21:09   street and you know gee everybody seems [TS]

00:21:11   to be carrying a little cardboard [TS]

00:21:13   rectangular box on a string around their [TS]

00:21:15   shoulders and what that's all about it [TS]

00:21:16   then you realize oh those are gas masks [TS]

00:21:18   nobody wants to leave their house unless [TS]

00:21:20   they're carrying again oh wow that [TS]

00:21:22   that's an intense part of the present [TS]

00:21:24   tense time to be to be alive in 1940 and [TS]

00:21:27   in Britain so for those were also i will [TS]

00:21:29   mention Sherlock earlier this is a very [TS]

00:21:31   similar format where it's the long [TS]

00:21:32   episodes and there aren't very many of [TS]

00:21:34   them / / series it's a very similar [TS]

00:21:36   format to Sherlock it's like a little [TS]

00:21:38   bunch of little movies [TS]

00:21:40   yeah i think i think the last series is [TS]

00:21:42   actually three episodes i've been [TS]

00:21:43   watching them on amazon prime and it's [TS]

00:21:46   like binge watching me okay I'm absent [TS]

00:21:48   episode 3 episode 4 away there is no [TS]

00:21:50   episode 4 no okay still be made though [TS]

00:21:53   still still still being made [TS]

00:21:55   alright Foyle's War good one and take a [TS]

00:21:58   break to talk about one of our sponsors [TS]

00:21:59   it's Squarespace the on one platform [TS]

00:22:01   that makes it fast and easy to create [TS]

00:22:03   your own professional website portfolio [TS]

00:22:05   and online store you may be saying to [TS]

00:22:07   yourself you know I'm not a super [TS]

00:22:08   computer genius [TS]

00:22:09   I don't know how to build my own website [TS]

00:22:11   you may actually be saying i am a super [TS]

00:22:13   computer genius i know lots of things [TS]

00:22:15   but one of the things that I'm not [TS]

00:22:16   totally up to speed on his web design [TS]

00:22:19   and the latest web technologies and I [TS]

00:22:21   don't want to be bothered maybe i do [TS]

00:22:22   some of that my day job but what I want [TS]

00:22:24   to make this website for my side [TS]

00:22:26   business or the project that i'm working [TS]

00:22:28   on for a family member or or something [TS]

00:22:31   that you're working on with a friend [TS]

00:22:32   some plan to like take over the universe [TS]

00:22:34   or something and you need a website for [TS]

00:22:36   that because you gotta have a website at [TS]

00:22:37   each [TS]

00:22:37   therefore everything Squarespace doesn't [TS]

00:22:39   do t-shirts but they do websites this is [TS]

00:22:41   what Squarespace is they make it simple [TS]

00:22:43   and easy to build websites you don't [TS]

00:22:45   have to know this stuff there are [TS]

00:22:46   beautiful designs these pre-formatted [TS]

00:22:49   templates that look gorgeous and they [TS]

00:22:51   are responsive so they work on mobile as [TS]

00:22:53   well as desktop and they're all [TS]

00:22:54   modifiable their customizable you can [TS]

00:22:57   start with a blank page and build your [TS]

00:22:58   own Squarespace templates you can modify [TS]

00:23:00   the templates that are there they're [TS]

00:23:02   tools are really easy to use as well [TS]

00:23:04   they've got drag and drop content tools [TS]

00:23:07   there's great support if you get stuck [TS]

00:23:09   if you again as I said are not a [TS]

00:23:11   complete master of all things web design [TS]

00:23:14   and web development there's twenty four [TS]

00:23:16   seven support to live chat and email [TS]

00:23:19   they've got support located all over the [TS]

00:23:21   globe that's why the people are not like [TS]

00:23:24   talking to you in the middle of the [TS]

00:23:25   night all the time even if it's the [TS]

00:23:26   middle of the night where you are it's [TS]

00:23:28   not necessarily where they are because [TS]

00:23:29   they've got great support New York City [TS]

00:23:31   dublin and other places around the world [TS]

00:23:33   and plans are affordable which is [TS]

00:23:36   another great thing about Squarespace [TS]

00:23:37   you hear us all talking about [TS]

00:23:39   Squarespace on podcast and you think [TS]

00:23:40   this is this giant monolithic [TS]

00:23:42   corporation they are going to suck like [TS]

00:23:44   five hundred dollars a day of my wallet [TS]

00:23:48   and it's not true plans started eight [TS]

00:23:49   dollars a month and if you sign up for a [TS]

00:23:51   whole year they will register a free [TS]

00:23:53   domain name for you [TS]

00:23:55   so that's just on the house for [TS]

00:23:57   something for a year of Squarespace and [TS]

00:23:58   plans are cheap now also if you want to [TS]

00:24:02   sell things [TS]

00:24:03   let's say you're not taking over the [TS]

00:24:04   world yet but you do need to sell things [TS]

00:24:06   on the internet as part of your plan to [TS]

00:24:09   take over the world well [TS]

00:24:10   Squarespace comes with an online store [TS]

00:24:12   it's not some weird like bonus thing you [TS]

00:24:16   could graft on from some other source it [TS]

00:24:17   comes with an online store you just get [TS]

00:24:20   it when you sign up so I think I've made [TS]

00:24:22   my point here if you are a super villain [TS]

00:24:24   or superhero quite frankly Squarespace [TS]

00:24:27   can serve you if you're selling things [TS]

00:24:29   on the Internet [TS]

00:25:22   show it's that mitchell and webb look [TS]

00:25:24   featuring david mitchell and Robert Webb [TS]

00:25:27   this is a fantastic sketch comedy series [TS]

00:25:31   series of all time [TS]

00:25:33   these are the david mitchell rubber web [TS]

00:26:48   who are on the show with them most [TS]

00:26:50   noticeable most notably Olivia Colman [TS]

00:26:52   and Patterson Joseph really funny and [TS]

00:26:56   the best single i think comedy bit about [TS]

00:26:59   sports I've ever seen which is there at [TS]

00:27:02   their bit advertising the it's basically [TS]

00:27:05   the sky TV's football coverage and you [TS]

00:27:09   should check out that clip on youtube [TS]

00:27:11   because the mitchell and webb football [TS]

00:27:12   bit is inspired anyway I was brilliant i [TS]

00:27:16   could not I I it is yeah it is my [TS]

00:27:18   favorite TV sketch show I think maybe [TS]

00:27:21   mark a lot of money pythons in the Hall [TS]

00:27:22   of Fame so we'll let it go but it is a [TS]

00:27:24   great show the end and these guys are [TS]

00:27:27   are really versatile and fun and they've [TS]

00:27:29   got a great supporting cast so i highly [TS]

00:27:31   recommend that you seek out that [TS]

00:27:32   mitchell and webb look and there's a [TS]

00:27:34   doctor who connection [TS]

00:27:35   yes they were robot voices in right in [TS]

00:27:38   dinosaurs on a spaceship [TS]

00:27:39   they also started the back in the pc and [TS]

00:27:41   the British back vs pc ads yes they were [TS]

00:27:44   the British mac and pc that is [TS]

00:27:45   absolutely right it's great and so do i [TS]

00:27:48   definitely check it out so that mitchell [TS]

00:27:49   and webb look and then they also do that [TS]

00:27:51   mitchell and webb sound which is a radio [TS]

00:27:54   version where sometimes they try out [TS]

00:27:56   sketches before they do them on the TV [TS]

00:27:58   version but a lot of them are unique to [TS]

00:28:01   the radio because they wouldn't work on [TS]

00:28:03   in visual so so well with looking for [TS]

00:28:07   that's number way that's not that bad [TS]

00:28:09   and and since you and since you have [TS]

00:28:11   have gotten number one David Monty gets [TS]

00:28:14   to go next Monty what do you have [TS]

00:28:17   well I don't think we're being nerdy [TS]

00:28:20   enough so i'm going to explain to [TS]

00:28:22   everybody that they need to watch spaced [TS]

00:28:24   if you haven't watched spaced your full [TS]

00:28:27   and we could practically put that on the [TS]

00:28:28   board but if de Morgan's not here so go [TS]

00:28:30   ahead [TS]

00:28:31   Edgar Wright directed it's written by [TS]

00:28:35   simon pegg uh-huh and it has nick frost [TS]

00:28:39   in it so the first thing you notice is [TS]

00:28:41   that it's the same people as in the [TS]

00:28:42   Cornetto trilogy [TS]

00:28:43   yes but it's also everybody that's doing [TS]

00:28:47   british comedy these days right Jessica [TS]

00:28:50   Stephenson is in that who is now Jessica [TS]

00:28:53   Hynes right and then she co-wrote it [TS]

00:28:56   yeah with with simon pegg Doctor Who [TS]

00:28:59   connection there to them [TS]

00:29:00   well my theory and i'm using space to [TS]

00:29:03   jump off from this is that England is a [TS]

00:29:06   very small country and there's only so [TS]

00:29:10   many people that you can put in your [TS]

00:29:11   show [TS]

00:29:12   there's only about 10 actors in England [TS]

00:29:14   that people don't know this but there's [TS]

00:29:15   really only 10 and so when you see that [TS]

00:29:17   said that guy doctor who and then he's [TS]

00:29:18   on Sherlock [TS]

00:29:19   and and then he's on space you're like [TS]

00:29:20   oh well I mean they have to reuse actors [TS]

00:29:22   because there's only about ten exactly [TS]

00:29:24   you watch space and you say who's this [TS]

00:29:25   neat guy with the deep voice well that's [TS]

00:29:27   Peter Sarafina which and he's also on [TS]

00:29:29   look around you and he's also on black [TS]

00:29:31   books and he's on everything because [TS]

00:29:32   everybody's on everything [TS]

00:29:34   yeah but specifically spaced um it's [TS]

00:29:39   great it's directed interestingly it's [TS]

00:29:42   about nerds it is if you like the [TS]

00:29:47   incomparable i am confident you would [TS]

00:29:49   like Spencer you be watching [TS]

00:29:52   yes I think that I think that's exactly [TS]

00:29:53   right if you like the incomparable you [TS]

00:29:55   need to watch spaced yes that's a great [TS]

00:29:59   one [TS]

00:29:59   that's what I think that's Dan morons [TS]

00:30:01   favorite TV show might be surrendered [TS]

00:30:03   his favorite TV show to it's definitely [TS]

00:30:04   up at the top for both of them too so [TS]

00:30:07   that's great space you can't you can't [TS]

00:30:09   go wrong with spaced David what do you [TS]

00:30:10   have in the second round of the thing [TS]

00:30:13   that is not a draft ok David what do you [TS]

00:30:16   have for us but well I am gonna serve [TS]

00:30:21   them with couple of things together [TS]

00:30:23   yeah that's fine that's fair because i'm [TS]

00:30:26   i'm a big fan of spy TV shows I and I i [TS]

00:30:29   grew up on several of them but then I [TS]

00:30:32   want to lead into like a slightly [TS]

00:30:34   different spy series hmm [TS]

00:30:37   growing up i watch The Avengers and the [TS]

00:30:40   New Avengers which isn't quite as good [TS]

00:30:42   but I you know I loved them i grew up [TS]

00:30:44   watching secret agent and then of course [TS]

00:30:47   the prisoner which we could do a whole [TS]

00:30:49   episode about all by itself should and [TS]

00:30:51   at some point yes and one of these days [TS]

00:30:53   and you know they're all I mean the [TS]

00:30:56   prisoners a little more serious and [TS]

00:30:58   secret agent is a little more serious [TS]

00:30:59   but they they're all in a similar kind [TS]

00:31:03   of sixties spy vain but the one I really [TS]

00:31:08   wanted to mention which doesn't get as [TS]

00:31:10   much attention over here at least is a [TS]

00:31:13   series from the late seventies called [TS]

00:31:15   the sandbaggers which is much more in [TS]

00:31:19   that sort of John lekar a smileys people [TS]

00:31:22   mold and greg rucka who does the the [TS]

00:31:26   comic and graphic novel Queen and [TS]

00:31:29   country has said that that was pretty [TS]

00:31:32   much the inspiration it's it's almost [TS]

00:31:34   the same kind of structure to the [TS]

00:31:36   organization and they used similar terms [TS]

00:31:39   and yeah i mean i don't want to say it's [TS]

00:31:41   more realistic i mean it's it's [TS]

00:31:44   obviously fiction but it's a much more [TS]

00:31:47   procedural it's the there aren't car [TS]

00:31:50   chases there aren't action scenes there [TS]

00:31:52   that everybody's bitter and the smoke a [TS]

00:31:54   lot and they drink a lot of coffee and [TS]

00:31:57   stuff happens and people die and it's [TS]

00:31:59   it's kind of it's kind of like a [TS]

00:32:01   complete 180 from the light froth fun of [TS]

00:32:04   the Avengers so but but i recommend all [TS]

00:32:08   of them yeah I thought you were going to [TS]

00:32:09   go with spy and you want a totally [TS]

00:32:11   different direction than spy if you [TS]

00:32:13   haven't seen to buy you want you don't [TS]

00:32:14   know that what that is but maybe people [TS]

00:32:16   will mention i have seen I have scenes [TS]

00:32:18   by all right it's a very different show [TS]

00:32:19   and not really about spies anyway maybe [TS]

00:32:21   we'll get to that Erica what do you have [TS]

00:32:24   and this is dr. related is this going to [TS]

00:32:26   be Blake seven are you going to pick [TS]

00:32:27   Blake's 7 but I will admit that Blake's [TS]

00:32:30   7 is somewhere on my lips that I alright [TS]

00:32:34   alright I'm gonna do another kind of 241 [TS]

00:32:38   because it's two shows that i like sort [TS]

00:32:41   of for the same reason you know if this [TS]

00:32:43   was a draft this would be cheating [TS]

00:32:45   see I know it's not a draft that I feel [TS]

00:32:47   empowered [TS]

00:32:50   anyway the first one is a monarch of the [TS]

00:32:52   glen which is sort of a a a charming [TS]

00:32:56   pastoral Scottish oh that's loosely [TS]

00:32:58   based on a circumference Mackenzie's [TS]

00:32:59   highland novels they were set in the [TS]

00:33:02   nineteen thirties and forties but the [TS]

00:33:04   show actually ran from like 2000-2005 [TS]

00:33:06   and and was sort of setting in modern [TS]

00:33:09   day times and it starts out being about [TS]

00:33:12   this city boy who kind of gets suckered [TS]

00:33:15   into sticking around to try to restore [TS]

00:33:18   his his childhood home and in the [TS]

00:33:21   Scottish Highlands and he doesn't really [TS]

00:33:22   want to be there and you know it's the [TS]

00:33:24   the city boy getting used to the country [TS]

00:33:26   life again thing and it's it's it's just [TS]

00:33:29   kind of quirky and cute and charming and [TS]

00:33:31   then final two seasons [TS]

00:33:33   well actually it in the beginning of the [TS]

00:33:35   show richard briers who's a very [TS]

00:33:37   well-known British actor who was in a [TS]

00:33:40   doctor who's in paradise towers he's of [TS]

00:33:42   he's the infuriating curmudgeonly all [TS]

00:33:45   old old father and then later on that [TS]

00:33:48   the sort of old fellow role is taken [TS]

00:33:51   over by none other than Tom Baker the [TS]

00:33:52   fourth doctor himself he comes in and [TS]

00:33:55   plays that characters brother for the [TS]

00:33:57   last couple of seasons and things are [TS]

00:33:59   kind of falling apart plot-wise buy it [TS]

00:34:01   by that time but it's fun to watch Tom [TS]

00:34:03   Baker being he's kind of just being Tom [TS]

00:34:05   Baker to be perfectly honest but it's [TS]

00:34:07   really fun to watch [TS]

00:34:08   so I i recommend it up when i watched it [TS]

00:34:11   was on netflix i don't know if it still [TS]

00:34:14   is [TS]

00:34:15   things are a little different here in [TS]

00:34:16   Canada but i would i would recommend [TS]

00:34:18   searching that out and the other one [TS]

00:34:19   that I like four sort of similar reasons [TS]

00:34:21   because its pastoral and charming and [TS]

00:34:23   quirky is a show called born and bred [TS]

00:34:25   and it was a British drama the air right [TS]

00:34:30   around the same time it was 2002 2005 [TS]

00:34:32   and it is it's another one that just has [TS]

00:34:35   a bunch of these sort of Apple [TS]

00:34:36   countrified characters that are a little [TS]

00:34:39   bit strange and a little bit silly and [TS]

00:34:42   this is a show that I get teased [TS]

00:34:44   mercilessly for for liking every time I [TS]

00:34:46   run into Rob Sherman at a convention [TS]

00:34:48   because he tells me I'm I'm dumb and [TS]

00:34:50   wrong for for liking it despite the fact [TS]

00:34:52   he wrote one of the episodes but he [TS]

00:34:55   missed the things very silly so it's a [TS]

00:34:59   father and son who run a cottage [TS]

00:35:01   hospital in this fictional lancashire [TS]

00:35:04   village in the fifties so this one's got [TS]

00:35:06   a little bit more of the old school [TS]

00:35:07   charm in it and it's it's just adorable [TS]

00:35:11   so if you if you like that sort of [TS]

00:35:13   pastoral type cutie show i highly [TS]

00:35:16   recommend both of those born and bred [TS]

00:35:18   and monarch of the glen right and [TS]

00:35:20   monarch of the Glen is on netflix even [TS]

00:35:22   now for those in the US who would like [TS]

00:35:25   to watch it i should say born-and-bred [TS]

00:35:26   was actually created and written mostly [TS]

00:35:30   written by Chris Chibnall so there's [TS]

00:35:31   another doctor who connection there [TS]

00:35:33   christian know who is a the road quite a [TS]

00:35:37   few things that a lot of people aren't [TS]

00:35:38   fondos there you go [TS]

00:35:40   yeah that's true Andy what do you have [TS]

00:35:43   for us another another great pic from [TS]

00:35:47   PBS mystery mystery theater Cadfael [TS]

00:35:50   which I burned through about five or ten [TS]

00:35:54   years ago this is another really great [TS]

00:35:56   mystery series because it's did the [TS]

00:35:58   twisted is once again because it's an [TS]

00:36:00   interesting times and interesting [TS]

00:36:02   circumstances the lead character is [TS]

00:36:05   brother cat filing a monk and abby at a [TS]

00:36:08   monk at the at the during a medieval [TS]

00:36:11   times 11 hundreds and at eight in a town [TS]

00:36:15   that's sort of at that precipice of [TS]

00:36:17   about to become a much bigger town [TS]

00:36:20   because it's not like a crossroads for [TS]

00:36:21   travelers come from the the monastery is [TS]

00:36:24   a very very big deal for commerce and [TS]

00:36:25   for people to cut pilgrims to come on [TS]

00:36:27   religious quests and so a lot of things [TS]

00:36:29   that happened is also like well there's [TS]

00:36:32   also a bit a lot of political intrigue [TS]

00:36:34   because there's a big fight for the [TS]

00:36:36   crown of England so politically people [TS]

00:36:39   coming through my key backers of members [TS]

00:36:42   mod another one might be Emperor backer [TS]

00:36:45   of King Stephen and people trying to put [TS]

00:36:47   people into the monastery of the [TS]

00:36:49   higher-ups of the disorder are trying to [TS]

00:36:51   put their own political allies in [TS]

00:36:54   positions of power but the big deal [TS]

00:36:56   though is that the lead character is the [TS]

00:36:58   detective Soto speakers brother Cadfael [TS]

00:37:00   and although most of the people most of [TS]

00:37:02   the monks in the monastery are people [TS]

00:37:05   who had been placed there as teenagers [TS]

00:37:08   are as weather in student age they [TS]

00:37:10   basically got the calling to God very [TS]

00:37:12   very early Cadfael is unique because he [TS]

00:37:15   was a soldier here in the Crusades he [TS]

00:37:17   was a sailor he only got the calling in [TS]

00:37:19   his forties and so on the bad side that [TS]

00:37:22   means that a lot of people who had been [TS]

00:37:23   there who have been taken up the hood [TS]

00:37:25   for about 20-30 years trying to look [TS]

00:37:28   down on him as sort of a monk come [TS]

00:37:29   lately at the other hand he has [TS]

00:37:33   experience in the greater world he is a [TS]

00:37:35   much better judge of human nature these [TS]

00:37:38   people who have never really lived in [TS]

00:37:40   the real world he has experience and [TS]

00:37:42   learning from the outside world and this [TS]

00:37:44   is why i like the abbot of the monastery [TS]

00:37:45   often lose quite quite sharp often leans [TS]

00:37:49   on him to say that [TS]

00:37:50   yeah we need well we need a delegation [TS]

00:37:52   to go visit this other church to have [TS]

00:37:54   this sort of conversation about what [TS]

00:37:56   we're going to do about this money [TS]

00:37:58   that's coming into this political thing [TS]

00:37:59   i'm assigning I'm i want you to travel [TS]

00:38:02   with them because these other five [TS]

00:38:03   people are kind of dopes and if someone [TS]

00:38:06   if the other delegation someone says to [TS]

00:38:08   him [TS]

00:38:08   yes I I heard it [TS]

00:38:10   angel came and visited me last night and [TS]

00:38:13   said that the really valuable holy [TS]

00:38:16   relics that are at your monastery should [TS]

00:38:18   be in our monastery instead that's what [TS]

00:38:20   the angel sent by God said cat fails the [TS]

00:38:23   first one to say yeah right that's [TS]

00:38:25   totally that's not sure that's totally [TS]

00:38:27   what happened [TS]

00:38:28   he's mostly solving crimes murders and [TS]

00:38:30   stuff like that and this is a time where [TS]

00:38:32   you go there's there's no green lasers [TS]

00:38:34   there's no computers that he can say [TS]

00:38:36   that one move move 20 degrees and [TS]

00:38:38   enhance yes I can see that the the date [TS]

00:38:40   on the signet ring of this photograph he [TS]

00:38:42   has to really work these things out like [TS]

00:38:44   very quite manually and the other the [TS]

00:38:46   other thing though is that although he [TS]

00:38:48   is worldly he is still legitimately [TS]

00:38:51   religious so it's often really [TS]

00:38:53   interesting to see how he how he applies [TS]

00:38:57   his faith in God and his faith in a [TS]

00:39:00   higher order in a higher power with the [TS]

00:39:02   reality of the world around him there's [TS]

00:39:04   something there several times when he [TS]

00:39:06   actually suggests but we perform this [TS]

00:39:08   religious right to see what happens [TS]

00:39:11   there there's one there's one of the [TS]

00:39:14   episodes for this one this is not these [TS]

00:39:17   hour-and-a-half longer shows again but [TS]

00:39:19   there's one that's a copy of a [TS]

00:39:21   complicated claim of rights against [TS]

00:39:23   these religious relics and it's they [TS]

00:39:25   belong to the monastery they've been [TS]

00:39:27   asked to another monastery has asked we [TS]

00:39:29   look we've been wiped out by a flood we [TS]

00:39:31   borrow these relics for one year [TS]

00:39:33   pilgrims will come to our monastery that [TS]

00:39:34   will give alms and we'll be able to [TS]

00:39:36   rebuild our monastery [TS]

00:39:37   meanwhile there's a third kind of [TS]

00:39:39   opportunity so we'll look if you're [TS]

00:39:40   trying if princess benefits relics are [TS]

00:39:42   traveling i want to a cloud you actually [TS]

00:39:44   again my my little monkey here said that [TS]

00:39:47   he's got it was visited by an angel said [TS]

00:39:49   that they should want us to and so the [TS]

00:39:51   weight is the way to solve this problem [TS]

00:39:53   or not is ok we're going to have where [TS]

00:39:54   to put the Bible understand we're gonna [TS]

00:39:56   ready with a red you each one each one [TS]

00:39:59   of these three people who has a claim to [TS]

00:40:00   the relics are going to randomly open to [TS]

00:40:02   a page while blindfolded and randomly [TS]

00:40:04   put their finger down on a passage of [TS]

00:40:06   scripture and whatever that scripture [TS]

00:40:07   says is going to indicate God's God's [TS]

00:40:09   thoughts about your claim to the to the [TS]

00:40:11   relics and one of them is again [TS]

00:40:14   pin the tail on the donkey blindfolded [TS]

00:40:15   turn around three times readily goes to [TS]

00:40:18   a random page and quotes from Scripture [TS]

00:40:20   I where I am you can see me but you [TS]

00:40:22   shall not find me where I am [TS]

00:40:24   you can never be that he really turns on [TS]

00:40:27   the turns on the the monkeys happen is [TS]

00:40:30   it is monster you claim to have the [TS]

00:40:31   vision up [TS]

00:40:32   he's a liar he's a he speaks the devil's [TS]

00:40:34   word i have like I distance myself from [TS]

00:40:36   him but all things and then the the CAD [TS]

00:40:40   files and Abbott does the riffle in [TS]

00:40:42   point [TS]

00:40:43   it says you have not you have not asked [TS]

00:40:45   you have not looked for me however i [TS]

00:40:47   have looked for you [TS]

00:40:48   I got good so we get to keep the relics [TS]

00:40:50   so this is real nice cool disconnect [TS]

00:40:52   between what amounts to forensics and [TS]

00:40:54   around too well look there's something [TS]

00:40:56   that doesn't make sense we have to [TS]

00:40:57   unravel this and make sure and see why [TS]

00:40:59   this doesn't make sense there's a way [TS]

00:41:00   that we can figure out where these these [TS]

00:41:03   these hairs came from there's a way that [TS]

00:41:04   we can sort of figure out where these [TS]

00:41:06   bones came from if we can melt down all [TS]

00:41:08   the skin from and try to reconstruct the [TS]

00:41:10   skeleton but there's still this [TS]

00:41:11   religious aspect to it so it is it's [TS]

00:41:14   kinda like I like it for a lot of the [TS]

00:41:15   reasons why like why like foils for [TS]

00:41:19   because it seems like there's so few [TS]

00:41:22   fresh ways to present a mystery and when [TS]

00:41:25   you put it in a totally different time [TS]

00:41:27   in a totally different constant context [TS]

00:41:28   it's almost like that's disruptive [TS]

00:41:30   enough to your own brain that you can [TS]

00:41:31   really see these things fresh again [TS]

00:41:33   so there's like maybe a half dozen of [TS]

00:41:35   these on DVD they're on netflix to and [TS]

00:41:37   they're like they're like little movies [TS]

00:41:39   great actors great be a great scenery [TS]

00:41:40   great stuff [TS]

00:41:41   alright great and that's Derek Jacobi [TS]

00:41:43   who as as every British actor has been [TS]

00:41:46   contractually obligated to appear in [TS]

00:41:48   Doctor Who so we'll move on to as a good [TS]

00:41:52   one [TS]

00:41:52   I'm i'm going to i'm going to choose a [TS]

00:41:54   name a six-part miniseries so it won't [TS]

00:41:58   they only did one series but it's [TS]

00:41:59   fantastic it's from 2003 it's directed [TS]

00:42:03   by david yates who went on to direct [TS]

00:42:05   many many I think Harry Potter movies [TS]

00:42:08   and then he wanted to direct the Doctor [TS]

00:42:10   Who movie [TS]

00:42:11   yeah exactly right and made to proclaim [TS]

00:42:14   that fact you know nobody else would let [TS]

00:42:15   him I state of play is what it's called [TS]

00:42:19   it's got a fantastic cast this is the i [TS]

00:42:22   would say this is my favorite work of [TS]

00:42:24   fiction about journalism stars john simm [TS]

00:42:31   from TVs doctor who you may know him as [TS]

00:42:33   the master from TVs Doctor Who I he is a [TS]

00:42:37   reporter here [TS]

00:42:37   Cal he's a kind of scuzzy reporter for a [TS]

00:42:41   newspaper in London he's friends with a [TS]

00:42:44   member of parliament david Morrissey [TS]

00:42:46   from TVs doctor who by the way as well [TS]

00:42:50   as Bob blackpool which is also another [TS]

00:42:51   great you know David morsi's a member of [TS]

00:42:54   parliament who has a questionable he may [TS]

00:42:58   have had an indiscretion in his marriage [TS]

00:42:59   that may or may not be related to a [TS]

00:43:01   mystery there's a a murder of a kid in [TS]

00:43:06   London that seems completely unrelated [TS]

00:43:07   and yet it will blossom into a shocking [TS]

00:43:11   scandal that will potentially lay low [TS]

00:43:14   the British government and also [TS]

00:43:16   potentially quite threaten the [TS]

00:43:18   livelihood of the newspaper itself [TS]

00:43:20   kelly macdonald it has the most [TS]

00:43:23   delightful and attractive Scottish [TS]

00:43:25   accent I've ever heard and Bill Nye is [TS]

00:43:29   the publisher of the newspaper and a [TS]

00:43:31   very painfully young James McAvoy is a [TS]

00:43:35   new reporter on the desk at the [TS]

00:43:37   newspaper and it is a complicated story [TS]

00:43:40   with a lot of fascinating elements and [TS]

00:43:43   goes to a perhaps ridiculous conclusion [TS]

00:43:46   at the end but you know what I i love i [TS]

00:43:50   love the whole thing it was remade into [TS]

00:43:52   a movie starring red know Russell Crowe [TS]

00:43:57   not Brad Pitt russell crowe I I haven't [TS]

00:44:00   seen that movie I don't know why you [TS]

00:44:01   need to see that movie see the six-part [TS]

00:44:04   original british TV series state of play [TS]

00:44:07   it is fantastic [TS]

00:44:10   bill nye by the way also appeared TVs [TS]

00:44:12   Doctor Who anyway that's what i [TS]

00:44:15   recommend to play it is fantastic [TS]

00:44:18   where can we find that because that [TS]

00:44:19   sounds good i want to see it it's been [TS]

00:44:21   on it's been on the television many [TS]

00:44:24   times because I saw it on the television [TS]

00:44:25   just your local TV see it certainly on [TS]

00:44:30   DVD i don't know i don't think it's on [TS]

00:44:31   netflix right now but you should seek it [TS]

00:44:32   out it is the british miniseries it's [TS]

00:44:34   widely available it was distributed [TS]

00:44:36   pretty well in the US and other North [TS]

00:44:38   American countries presumably as well [TS]

00:44:40   and i highly recommend it is [TS]

00:44:42   spectacularly good so that's its to play [TS]

00:44:45   let's go around again Monty what you [TS]

00:44:47   have [TS]

00:44:48   well because I love books i'm going to [TS]

00:44:50   talk up [TS]

00:44:51   so that very space adjacent but is not [TS]

00:44:54   spaced it's black books its stars dylan [TS]

00:44:59   moran and Irish comic who has never been [TS]

00:45:01   on Doctor Who as far as i know it's only [TS]

00:45:04   a matter of time [TS]

00:45:05   nope he plays perfect i hope i hope they [TS]

00:45:09   never check that guy's paperwork because [TS]

00:45:10   if they find out he was never a doctor [TS]

00:45:12   who [TS]

00:45:13   oh boy the penalties on that well he's [TS]

00:45:15   Irish not English so I think he's [TS]

00:45:17   allowed he plays bernhard black a [TS]

00:45:20   drunken abusive owner of a bookstore who [TS]

00:45:23   hate selling books most of the used book [TS]

00:45:28   stores i've been in most college towns [TS]

00:45:30   yes he is assisted by many who is played [TS]

00:45:34   by Bill Bailey who is a tenth of comic [TS]

00:45:36   who has been on Doctor Who and the and [TS]

00:45:40   Tamsin Grieg who plays fran she's also [TS]

00:45:42   been on Doctor Who and she owns the [TS]

00:45:45   store next door that's pretty much the [TS]

00:45:47   whole show when you get into later [TS]

00:45:50   series more people start showing up like [TS]

00:45:52   peter serafinowicz and simon pegg but [TS]

00:45:55   mostly it's just about dylan moran and [TS]

00:45:58   Bill Bailey intention Greek bouncing off [TS]

00:46:00   of each other and dylan moran being [TS]

00:46:02   hilariously drunk and abusive to people [TS]

00:46:05   who just want to buy books from him and [TS]

00:46:07   it's just great [TS]

00:46:09   if you've ever been in a tiny bookstore [TS]

00:46:11   where you walk in and the person just [TS]

00:46:15   hates you on sight [TS]

00:46:16   you will notice show that's great black [TS]

00:46:21   books all right put it on the board [TS]

00:46:25   David did you know there's a board [TS]

00:46:26   there's a board and it's on now [TS]

00:46:28   David what do you have aside from law [TS]

00:46:31   and order UK which is the British law [TS]

00:46:33   and order starting free magic woman who [TS]

00:46:35   you may know from TVs doctor who and [TS]

00:46:37   peter davison who you may know from TVs [TS]

00:46:38   Doctor Who anyway go ahead and and [TS]

00:46:40   written by Chris Chibnall you may know [TS]

00:46:42   that from TVs Torchwood and TVs Doctor [TS]

00:46:44   Who yeah they're on the BBC i have to [TS]

00:46:48   say i'm kind of surprised it's taking [TS]

00:46:50   this long to get here so I'm going to do [TS]

00:46:51   it worth muriqui's dark place which is [TS]

00:46:56   only six episodes long it's it's kind of [TS]

00:47:00   nuts it's a very metal show [TS]

00:47:03   it's it's the entire thing [TS]

00:47:05   basically a flashback a rediscovered [TS]

00:47:08   classic show from the eighties and the [TS]

00:47:11   the whole thing is sort of narrated and [TS]

00:47:13   given context by the actors who appeared [TS]

00:47:16   in it as well as the writer and creator [TS]

00:47:18   and star and director girth merengue [TS]

00:47:21   who's kind of if you took stephen j [TS]

00:47:24   cannell and Harlan Ellison and shove [TS]

00:47:27   them together it's it's a little bit as [TS]

00:47:31   disturbing as that sounds [TS]

00:47:32   and so he's this egomaniacal brilliant [TS]

00:47:36   bad writer and well i guess in touch of [TS]

00:47:38   Stephen King and and be much worse than [TS]

00:47:41   any of them [TS]

00:47:42   I mean they're all like good and it's [TS]

00:47:46   it's it is possibly the best worst show [TS]

00:47:52   you've ever seen because members to show [TS]

00:47:54   their remembering you know they're [TS]

00:47:56   remembering it like it was God's gift to [TS]

00:47:58   television and then they show you the [TS]

00:48:01   clips from it and it is the worst [TS]

00:48:04   cheapest looking thing I mean it is it [TS]

00:48:07   is just brilliant and it coasters matt [TS]

00:48:11   berry you might know from TVs the IT [TS]

00:48:14   crowd and I don't know he's been a [TS]

00:48:17   doctor that's a good question and [TS]

00:48:19   Richard I owe a day from TVA IT crowd [TS]

00:48:22   but he also was involved in directing it [TS]

00:48:25   and he's also directed episodes of [TS]

00:48:27   community and and it's just and oh I [TS]

00:48:32   mean I can't say enough about it i think [TS]

00:48:34   the only place to find it right now is [TS]

00:48:36   on DVD but I the first place I saw it [TS]

00:48:39   was on i think it was on BBC america and [TS]

00:48:44   then it ran on adult swim for a couple [TS]

00:48:46   of cycles so it pops up out there was [TS]

00:48:50   well worth finding and then the the sort [TS]

00:48:52   of tangential spin-off what was it [TS]

00:48:56   man-to-man with Dean learner which is [TS]

00:49:00   Richard I O'Day's character interviewing [TS]

00:49:02   the actor who was Garth merengue but in [TS]

00:49:05   each episode [TS]

00:49:06   he's a different character so it's sort [TS]

00:49:08   of like this one-on-one interview show [TS]

00:49:10   with these really insane people [TS]

00:49:12   alright that's great I've never i love [TS]

00:49:14   it when there are things I've totally [TS]

00:49:15   never heard of South out that was one of [TS]

00:49:17   them that's good [TS]

00:49:18   Erica what do you have next I'll write [TS]

00:49:21   my next pick [TS]

00:49:23   I'm kind of going in a slightly [TS]

00:49:25   different direction is called Hotel [TS]

00:49:27   Babylon which is something that I kind [TS]

00:49:29   of randomly discovered on netflix a [TS]

00:49:32   while ago and it's a british show about [TS]

00:49:34   a hotel called Hotel Babylon and I've [TS]

00:49:36   always been a big fan of the the type of [TS]

00:49:38   show that you know the like The Love [TS]

00:49:41   Boat style thing that the hotel where [TS]

00:49:44   you have different people coming in and [TS]

00:49:45   out every week and also i'm just kind of [TS]

00:49:48   fascinated by hotels in general so the [TS]

00:49:50   show like this about the inner workings [TS]

00:49:52   of the hotel it follows the concierge [TS]

00:49:56   and bartender and just sort of that the [TS]

00:49:59   staff that's running this hotel in the [TS]

00:50:01   stuff that they have to put up with and [TS]

00:50:03   deal with and it's kind of more of a [TS]

00:50:06   flashy slick show sometimes it's a [TS]

00:50:08   little tawdry but overall it's mostly [TS]

00:50:11   just it's funny but there's my sense of [TS]

00:50:13   warmth to it at the core and it's one of [TS]

00:50:15   those things where as it went on it did [TS]

00:50:17   sort of fall apart a little bit i think [TS]

00:50:20   but I quite quite like it [TS]

00:50:22   the I think it was the first series is [TS]

00:50:24   actually based on a book of the same [TS]

00:50:25   name and but it went from 2006 2009 and [TS]

00:50:30   it was bc one i looked it up it's [TS]

00:50:32   actually the real BBC and it was just it [TS]

00:50:36   was just really cool i like the like [TS]

00:50:38   sort of you know putting myself in the [TS]

00:50:39   shoes of the people who are who are [TS]

00:50:41   running this place and having to deal [TS]

00:50:42   with it and also then you know it's [TS]

00:50:44   saying that the rock stars and crazy [TS]

00:50:46   actors and stuff is some of whom show up [TS]

00:50:48   and play themselves which is another [TS]

00:50:50   thing that I'm quite find of anyway yeah [TS]

00:50:53   it's a good show [TS]

00:50:54   I just really enjoy it like governor I I [TS]

00:50:57   can't even do it little let's figure it [TS]

00:51:00   can and 21 other sponsor on this episode [TS]

00:51:43   you had to go to like the Learning Annex [TS]

00:55:06   and I was sure someone's gonna get cat [TS]

00:55:08   fails i need to get both of those out [TS]

00:55:09   there quickly even though it's not a [TS]

00:55:10   draft but yes I wasn't sure why don't [TS]

00:55:15   no no it's good [TS]

00:55:16   uh that's what we do at the end let's [TS]

00:55:19   let's talk about way what's the draft [TS]

00:55:21   was not addressed that all right that's [TS]

00:55:22   a separate issue really really fun show [TS]

00:55:25   on on of course on BBC which runs every [TS]

00:55:29   two british TV show called called penn [TS]

00:55:32   and teller fool us and it's its stars [TS]

00:55:35   pendant it's like a it's it's it's a [TS]

00:55:37   show in which a state show in which of [TS]

00:55:40   magicians perform one magic trick in [TS]

00:55:42   front of a live audience including penn [TS]

00:55:44   and teller and the gamble is that Penn & [TS]

00:55:48   Teller will watch the trick given only [TS]

00:55:50   the information of what they've been [TS]

00:55:52   able to observe as an audience member [TS]

00:55:53   they then when the trick is over [TS]

00:55:55   try to guess how it was [TS]

00:55:57   on they get one guess and one guess only [TS]

00:56:00   and if they're right well everybody [TS]

00:56:02   still got to enjoy a magic trick but if [TS]

00:56:04   they guessed wrong then they get the [TS]

00:56:06   magician gets a free trip to Las Vegas [TS]

00:56:08   to be the opening act for one show for [TS]

00:56:10   for the Penn & Teller show in las vegas [TS]

00:56:12   and it is at times really really funny [TS]

00:56:17   because you get to its it's great to [TS]

00:56:19   hear you get to really see the gears of [TS]

00:56:22   especially tellers mind running because [TS]

00:56:23   he still doesn't talk but he passes [TS]

00:56:26   notes he's clearly looking at things and [TS]

00:56:28   that he can ask what they can ask one or [TS]

00:56:29   two simple questions through the host [TS]

00:56:31   Jonathan Ross who knows how the trick is [TS]

00:56:33   done but it's the most satisfying thing [TS]

00:56:36   is when Penn using his you know mr. [TS]

00:56:39   know-it-all voice says well the thing [TS]

00:56:42   with magic using you did the move so [TS]

00:56:44   well so well that we almost didn't see [TS]

00:56:47   you do it but we think that there's [TS]

00:56:49   something weird about that box we don't [TS]

00:56:52   want to reveal it to you and then [TS]

00:56:53   there's that no it has nothing to do [TS]

00:56:55   with the box [TS]

00:56:55   oh okay then I guess you fooled us there [TS]

00:56:59   this there's if you go on youtube you'll [TS]

00:57:01   find lots and lots of these clips one of [TS]

00:57:04   them is one of them is particularly good [TS]

00:57:06   if there's a car trick revealed in which [TS]

00:57:10   they were really really sure what that [TS]

00:57:13   what the solution was not only were they [TS]

00:57:15   wrong but the magician also predicted it [TS]

00:57:18   ahead of time I bet he's going to think [TS]

00:57:20   that there's a gap or something inside [TS]

00:57:22   this box and so when they asked him [TS]

00:57:23   about that they when they pointed that [TS]

00:57:25   out he said just open the box which [TS]

00:57:27   there was one card so we said no that's [TS]

00:57:29   not it at which point you see teller [TS]

00:57:31   rise from his seat and start applauding [TS]

00:57:33   because he was so pleased that they got [TS]

00:57:36   trick that way so it's at so that the [TS]

00:57:39   clips are all over YouTube they're [TS]

00:57:40   really really funny i think the CW is [TS]

00:57:42   the network here is trying to this [TS]

00:57:44   summer the CW is airing this show on us [TS]

00:57:47   TV that's ok so maybe start technically [TS]

00:57:49   now a british show but it'sit's BBC us [TS]

00:57:52   BBC channel 18 i think that's right [TS]

00:57:55   accounts it's all BBC alright I am going [TS]

00:57:59   to go next and I have so many things to [TS]

00:58:02   choose from i really don't know what I'm [TS]

00:58:03   going to say here oh my god i am going [TS]

00:58:07   to go with one of my very favorite I [TS]

00:58:11   sitcoms of all time and I and yes this [TS]

00:58:18   is a sitcom created by the current [TS]

00:58:21   showrunner of tvs doctor who wait tvs [TS]

00:58:26   dr. what does this show you getting that [TS]

00:58:28   diet shit says it's the syfy don't worry [TS]

00:58:32   about it anyway but before before Steven [TS]

00:58:35   Moffat road doctor who he wrote one of [TS]

00:58:39   my very favorite sitcoms which is called [TS]

00:58:40   coupling it is a show that is that that [TS]

00:58:45   is configured like somebody said you [TS]

00:58:49   know that friends show was really [TS]

00:58:50   popular in the US we could do a show [TS]

00:58:52   with that same configuration where it's [TS]

00:58:54   a Glock kind of a nice set and [TS]

00:58:57   attractive people which you know this [TS]

00:58:59   seems normal to us Americans but BBC [TS]

00:59:02   shows tended not to look like that and [TS]

00:59:04   tended not to cast like that and so by [TS]

00:59:07   all accounts it looks like a friend's [TS]

00:59:08   knock off but the thing is at its heart [TS]

00:59:10   it's much more farcical the the scripts [TS]

00:59:13   are much sharper i would say and I liked [TS]

00:59:16   friends actually but if they're the [TS]

00:59:18   sharper and twisty ur doing many of the [TS]

00:59:20   tricks that Steven Moffat within later [TS]

00:59:22   do in Doctor Who but in sitcom form lots [TS]

00:59:25   of time jumps and cut back cuts back and [TS]

00:59:28   forth and some just fantastic dialogue [TS]

00:59:33   and and rants and very amusing [TS]

00:59:37   characters including the great character [TS]

00:59:39   of Jeff Murdock played by richard [TS]

00:59:41   richard coyle but honestly all of the [TS]

00:59:45   characters are in their own special way [TS]

00:59:47   unique the fourth season when richard [TS]

00:59:49   coyle is not as good as the first three [TS]

00:59:51   the first three are spectacularly funny [TS]

00:59:54   and my wife and I will quit lines from [TS]

00:59:56   coupling to this day i really like it so [TS]

00:59:58   we don't don't view it as it [TS]

00:59:58   we don't don't view it as it [TS]

01:00:00   as a sitcom a british sitcom knockoff of [TS]

01:00:03   American sitcoms in fact i'd argue that [TS]

01:00:05   the scripts have more more in common [TS]

01:00:06   with Frasier than friends in that they [TS]

01:00:09   are of a a a farcical construction in a [TS]

01:00:12   way and much less of a standard sitcom [TS]

01:00:14   construction and if if there's one [TS]

01:00:16   episode of a sitcom that you need to [TS]

01:00:18   watch for a laugh it let it be the girl [TS]

01:00:20   with two breasts from coupling which is [TS]

01:00:22   spectacular in its collection of jokes [TS]

01:00:25   and embarrassment i can't recommend [TS]

01:00:28   coupling highly enough available [TS]

01:00:30   everywhere that videos are available i [TS]

01:00:33   believe devaluation i remember watching [TS]

01:00:35   coupling it was the show on NBC wasn't [TS]

01:00:37   it [TS]

01:00:38   oh man yeah you know uh what-what couple [TS]

01:00:42   Thomas is actually what the office also [TS]

01:00:44   taught us which is don't just take the [TS]

01:00:45   scripts from the u.s. from the UK [TS]

01:00:47   version and run and shoot them in the [TS]

01:00:48   u.s. is the office as soon as they [TS]

01:00:50   stopped using the UK scripts of the [TS]

01:00:52   office was much better and coupled with [TS]

01:00:54   the same way they they the network [TS]

01:00:56   completely interfered and then they just [TS]

01:00:57   reused Moffat scripts and and by the [TS]

01:01:00   time they started using their own [TS]

01:01:01   scripts it was far too late and it's a [TS]

01:01:04   shame but the original UK edition is [TS]

01:01:06   great [TS]

01:01:07   don't let the disastrous US edition fool [TS]

01:01:09   you so that's my that's my plug for [TS]

01:01:12   coupling let's go let's go back to the [TS]

01:01:14   top of the order one more time Monty [TS]

01:01:18   what do you have [TS]

01:01:19   well how about my favorite author PG [TS]

01:01:24   Woodhouse PG Wodehouse created a classic [TS]

01:01:27   created a number of classic series [TS]

01:01:30   actually but the one most people are [TS]

01:01:31   aware of is the Jesus booster series and [TS]

01:01:35   they were brought to life by stephen fry [TS]

01:01:37   and Hugh Laurie better than any two [TS]

01:01:40   people could possibly have done [TS]

01:01:43   Jesus booster stephen fry is perfect as [TS]

01:01:48   Jeeves Hugh Laurie I you don't know him [TS]

01:01:51   aside from house be prepared for a [TS]

01:01:54   surprise is perfect as birdie booster [TS]

01:01:57   the 4 series of Jesus booster are [TS]

01:02:01   perfect adaptations of PG Wodehouse [TS]

01:02:04   stories and are a delight from start to [TS]

01:02:09   finish [TS]

01:02:10   you can also watch Blackadder and a bit [TS]

01:02:12   of fry and laurie once you [TS]

01:02:13   are caught up on Jesus mr. but I would [TS]

01:02:16   really start with cheese in worcester [TS]

01:02:17   and you could just end there absolutely [TS]

01:02:21   seconded [TS]

01:02:22   ok I can't believe I can't believe I [TS]

01:02:24   didn't think about myself I actually [TS]

01:02:26   actually have the Stephen fried talking [TS]

01:02:28   geez alarm clock in this and is right [TS]

01:02:30   actually actually says good morning sir [TS]

01:02:34   someone is putting that on my list too i [TS]

01:02:36   did have coupling but how did I miss [TS]

01:02:38   that good pic money i don't think either [TS]

01:02:40   of them a better doctor who like Trivial [TS]

01:02:42   Pursuit Monty wins british TV apparently [TS]

01:02:47   hey good job good job Monty David what [TS]

01:02:50   do you have I have a show from the [TS]

01:02:53   creator of Spooks which we know over [TS]

01:02:56   here in the US is mi5 mi5 because we [TS]

01:03:00   don't know what a spook is apparently [TS]

01:03:02   well we we do we we do it's just a [TS]

01:03:06   horribly racially tinged word parts of [TS]

01:03:09   the US and so can't be used in TV show [TS]

01:03:11   titles yeah that too [TS]

01:03:13   well this is much more friendly title [TS]

01:03:16   it's a show called hustle which started [TS]

01:03:20   in leicester and robert vaughn and Jamie [TS]

01:03:23   Murray and it's it's if you know the [TS]

01:03:27   show leverage or if you remember if [TS]

01:03:30   you're crazy enough to remember the [TS]

01:03:32   show's switch from the mid-seventies [TS]

01:03:34   it's very much in that faded it's a [TS]

01:03:36   group of con artists who swindled those [TS]

01:03:40   who deserve to be swindled and and [TS]

01:03:43   sometimes they give to the poor they [TS]

01:03:45   don't necessarily go full Robin Hood all [TS]

01:03:49   the time and it is just you know that [TS]

01:03:54   again you know taking spycraft as using [TS]

01:03:58   spycraft as a caper film kind of the way [TS]

01:04:01   mission impossible does he takes all the [TS]

01:04:03   training he had for the show before this [TS]

01:04:07   and applies it to how would we do these [TS]

01:04:09   things if we were con artists and [TS]

01:04:12   they're just a lot of fun and it's it's [TS]

01:04:16   fun to see some of the day again a lot [TS]

01:04:18   of actors that you're going to recognize [TS]

01:04:19   from other things just getting to have a [TS]

01:04:23   little fun i mean it it really is a [TS]

01:04:25   caper film [TS]

01:04:26   just every week so I like that and [TS]

01:04:29   robert vaughn is delightful [TS]

01:04:31   so he's great Robert glennister also [TS]

01:04:34   fantastic he was in case of Androzani [TS]

01:04:36   back in the old days of Doctor Who and [TS]

01:04:37   Mark words tarde in love and monsters so [TS]

01:04:41   there you go it very very good hustle [TS]

01:04:45   all right Erica what do you have [TS]

01:04:47   I am overjoyed that David shows hustle [TS]

01:04:50   because i had it narrowed down to two [TS]

01:04:52   things [TS]

01:04:52   oh my god what do I talk about next [TS]

01:04:54   hustle has one of them so check so [TS]

01:04:57   instead I get to talk about i'm going to [TS]

01:05:00   do a sitcom as well definitely in a [TS]

01:05:01   completely different vein from from [TS]

01:05:03   coupling which which jason shows mine's [TS]

01:05:05   a little bit older it was from actually [TS]

01:05:07   1992 but when all the way to 2002 as [TS]

01:05:10   time goes by starring Judy Dench and [TS]

01:05:13   Geoffrey Palmer Geoffrey Palmer who was [TS]

01:05:15   in Doctor Who not once but twice [TS]

01:05:17   yeah and it is just one of the sweetest [TS]

01:05:20   sitcoms but i think i've ever seen [TS]

01:05:23   it's it's a kind of a romantic would [TS]

01:05:26   that follows a relationship between two [TS]

01:05:28   former lovers who kind of run into each [TS]

01:05:30   other after having not been in contact [TS]

01:05:32   for almost 40 years they have a letter [TS]

01:05:36   got lost in the mail and they never got [TS]

01:05:38   back together again and ended up having [TS]

01:05:40   these completely separate lives and then [TS]

01:05:42   randomly run into each other 38 years [TS]

01:05:44   later and fall back in love and it's [TS]

01:05:47   just this courtship story and it centers [TS]

01:05:50   around to people who are much older than [TS]

01:05:52   what you see is sort of the hope [TS]

01:05:54   certainly these days the average main [TS]

01:05:56   characters on a television show and it's [TS]

01:06:00   it's warm and it's got so much heart and [TS]

01:06:02   it's just about the way families [TS]

01:06:04   interact and you know the Judi Dench's [TS]

01:06:08   character has a grown-up daughter and [TS]

01:06:10   who also has a friend who comes to live [TS]

01:06:12   with them and then so there's no romance [TS]

01:06:14   of these sort of like younger variety [TS]

01:06:16   and then the older variety and it's just [TS]

01:06:19   it's got these characters that are you [TS]

01:06:21   know kind of wacky sitcom characters but [TS]

01:06:23   not so over the top that it bothers me [TS]

01:06:26   because I have trouble with sitcoms in [TS]

01:06:27   general and this one just it really kind [TS]

01:06:30   of rides that line and just just makes [TS]

01:06:32   me love it for for all 10 years [TS]

01:06:36   yep as time goes by [TS]

01:06:38   that's good that's not the show I [TS]

01:06:40   haven't heard of I mean judi dench i [TS]

01:06:41   think was known before that but that is [TS]

01:06:43   you know kind of cemented her place and [TS]

01:06:45   I know if liz is listening to this [TS]

01:06:46   episode right now which she probably is [TS]

01:06:48   she's screaming at me because she thinks [TS]

01:06:50   it's a terrible shown so they should not [TS]

01:06:52   watch it but she's wrong [TS]

01:06:53   judi dench of course not not yet on TVs [TS]

01:06:56   doctor who but that's okay she'll be the [TS]

01:06:58   next Doctor Who probably so why not take [TS]

01:07:01   this all right Andy your turn what do [TS]

01:07:03   you have [TS]

01:07:04   ok now I imagine imagine that sitcom [TS]

01:07:06   like friends only a it's British number [TS]

01:07:11   two they live in circumstances that are [TS]

01:07:15   quite befitting the amount of money that [TS]

01:07:18   you would be making if you're making you [TS]

01:07:20   know if you're just didn't really have [TS]

01:07:21   really jobs at all that line and third [TS]

01:07:26   imagine that instead of like like six [TS]

01:07:29   good-looking people in their twenties [TS]

01:07:31   they are eight Edmondson and Rik Mayall [TS]

01:07:33   like at age 28 29 30 and you have bottom [TS]

01:07:37   it is not at all a sophisticated sitcom [TS]

01:07:42   it it really is all about these people [TS]

01:07:44   like punching each other in the groin [TS]

01:07:47   with cricket bats as a resolution to a [TS]

01:07:49   problem and dealing not really dealing [TS]

01:07:52   with the fact that they have no money [TS]

01:07:53   and not really dealing with the fact [TS]

01:07:54   they have no prospects not really [TS]

01:07:56   dealing with the fact that they try to [TS]

01:07:58   have a they try to go out to the bars [TS]

01:08:00   i'm all they wind up doing is drinking [TS]

01:08:02   drinking drinking drinking if even if [TS]

01:08:04   they might have had a larger goal in [TS]

01:08:05   mind such as to be even eight percent [TS]

01:08:08   presentable to women it's just [TS]

01:08:10   straightforward comedy and just the [TS]

01:08:12   opening just the opening titles of the [TS]

01:08:14   show that it release it really sets the [TS]

01:08:17   tone for because these two guys these [TS]

01:08:20   two actors that what they were working [TS]

01:08:21   together for since they were kids really [TS]

01:08:23   you know that this is our first like [TS]

01:08:25   college productions and you just see [TS]

01:08:26   them sitting together on a park bench [TS]

01:08:28   with nothing to do and just getting on [TS]

01:08:31   each other's nerves until once again [TS]

01:08:33   that's there has to be a punch to the [TS]

01:08:36   groin it's not sophisticated it's just [TS]

01:08:40   funny that's all I'm saying all right [TS]

01:08:42   and when we you mentioned adrian [TS]

01:08:44   edmondson and Rick may also your [TS]

01:08:46   description would have that you were [TS]

01:08:47   leading up to would would describe the [TS]

01:08:49   young ones just as well which is the [TS]

01:08:51   call [TS]

01:08:52   aged people with no money dear fascist [TS]

01:08:55   bully-boy give me some money you bastard [TS]

01:08:58   love Neil yes that's I haven't i've been [TS]

01:09:01   trying to avoid the ones that I think [TS]

01:09:02   that like I must have talked about [TS]

01:09:04   before because I'm such a big fan of [TS]

01:09:06   Python such a big fan of the young ones [TS]

01:09:07   but yet the young ones would be another [TS]

01:09:10   one if you have not her if you have not [TS]

01:09:11   seen this before absolutely sick that [TS]

01:09:13   when I thought it was just so taut so [TS]

01:09:15   right out there on the middle shelf that [TS]

01:09:18   I need to go with just a one-level [TS]

01:09:20   behind it for four bottom but I'd feel [TS]

01:09:23   around for bottom and if bottom is to [TS]

01:09:25   organize for you watch some of the [TS]

01:09:28   bottom live performances which are [TS]

01:09:31   shambolic alright that's good [TS]

01:09:36   it's my turn to go i am completely [TS]

01:09:39   baffled about what to choose [TS]

01:09:41   so i'm going to choose the british [TS]

01:09:43   series that made me one understand that [TS]

01:09:46   there was an England and it had regions [TS]

01:09:49   and that people spoke with accents there [TS]

01:09:52   and to made me gave me the superpower as [TS]

01:09:56   a young person of being able to [TS]

01:09:57   understand thick English accents and it [TS]

01:10:02   particularly Yorkshire accent and that [TS]

01:10:05   is because my mother and i would spend [TS]

01:10:07   many hours when I was growing up sitting [TS]

01:10:10   in front of the TV and watching all [TS]

01:10:13   creatures great and small which is a [TS]

01:10:16   wonderful show about a small town and [TS]

01:10:21   countryside veterinarians in the run-up [TS]

01:10:25   to world war 2i want to say and [TS]

01:10:28   Christopher Timothy Peter Davison you [TS]

01:10:32   may know from TVs doctor who isn't it [TS]

01:10:33   Robert Hardy as well as a 6-3 foreign [TS]

01:10:37   wonderful show lots of humor very [TS]

01:10:41   heartwarming a mute amazingly amusing [TS]

01:10:45   thick yorkshire accents and I love this [TS]

01:10:47   show so much then the first that the [TS]

01:10:49   first time I went to England we made a [TS]

01:10:51   point of going to the town of thirst [TS]

01:10:53   which is where the real James Herriot [TS]

01:10:54   who wrote the novel's had his practice [TS]

01:10:56   it's now at a james herriot museum and [TS]

01:11:00   we went there and then we took a drive [TS]

01:11:01   through the Yorkshire Dales and saw all [TS]

01:11:04   the places really where they shot [TS]

01:11:05   that part of the show and so I made a [TS]

01:11:08   point to show that was made such an [TS]

01:11:10   indelible impression on me that when i [TS]

01:11:12   went to England for the first time I had [TS]

01:11:14   to go see the Yorkshire Dales it had to [TS]

01:11:17   be done and those people do talk like [TS]

01:11:19   that and it is wonderful and I actually [TS]

01:11:21   sort of understood them because i have [TS]

01:11:23   spent so much time drinking it and this [TS]

01:11:25   is one of the shows that also went on [TS]

01:11:26   forever and they would go away for 45 [TS]

01:11:28   years and then just come back and do [TS]

01:11:29   more episodes and and they went through [TS]

01:11:32   world war two and then after World War [TS]

01:11:33   Two and the cast aged and changed and it [TS]

01:11:36   was a absolutely wonderful show the [TS]

01:11:38   books are great too but the the series [TS]

01:11:40   is is is beautiful i think it's all on [TS]

01:11:43   netflix as well so i couldn't could [TS]

01:11:45   recommend all creatures great and small [TS]

01:11:47   highly enough and then featuring a guy [TS]

01:11:49   named Peter Davison who you my TV's [TS]

01:11:51   Doctor Who I mentioned that I mention [TS]

01:11:54   that he's on TVs doctor who he was a [TS]

01:11:55   one-point also david tennant's [TS]

01:11:58   father-in-law if you want to go that [TS]

01:11:59   route you can do that too so so we've [TS]

01:12:03   reached what I'm gonna think is the end [TS]

01:12:05   but i know that there are many more [TS]

01:12:06   shows so I'm going I'm going to go [TS]

01:12:08   around one last time and let you unload [TS]

01:12:10   the rest of your list because i'm sure [TS]

01:12:12   you've got more things on your list just [TS]

01:12:14   get them out really quick because i [TS]

01:12:15   don't want them to not be mentioned [TS]

01:12:17   Monty what did you have left all that I [TS]

01:12:20   have left [TS]

01:12:22   I'm not joking about this is the goon [TS]

01:12:24   show say radio show from a million years [TS]

01:12:28   ago [TS]

01:12:29   written by Spike Milligan and starring [TS]

01:12:31   Spike Milligan harry secombe and Peter [TS]

01:12:33   Sellers as a wide variety of extremely [TS]

01:12:38   stupid people [TS]

01:12:39   it's very catchphrase based it's very [TS]

01:12:41   callback based it was a huge influence [TS]

01:12:45   on Monty Python you can get some [TS]

01:12:49   episodes and there's a chance it will [TS]

01:12:52   make sense to you if you listen to six [TS]

01:12:54   or seven in a row you'll start to enjoy [TS]

01:12:55   it it's the goon show [TS]

01:12:58   listen to it i dare you alright the goon [TS]

01:12:59   show that's cleared off your list [TS]

01:13:01   David would you have left on your list [TS]

01:13:03   all man is still got so many i'll just [TS]

01:13:07   run down a whole bunch [TS]

01:13:08   hello Fawlty Towers bless me Father from [TS]

01:13:12   from the i wanna i wanna officially [TS]

01:13:14   inducted fawlty towers and just put it [TS]

01:13:17   on the board as the hall of fame [TS]

01:13:19   well yeah because really we should have [TS]

01:13:21   done that upfront and we didn't know it [TS]

01:13:23   there it is it's retro actively in the [TS]

01:13:24   Hall of Fame don't mention the war [TS]

01:13:26   go ahead he's from Barcelona anyway [TS]

01:13:28   inspectors Morris Lewis and ever the [TS]

01:13:33   fall which is all on netflix and stars [TS]

01:13:35   gillian anderson in a very smart serial [TS]

01:13:39   killer thriller Miranda which stars [TS]

01:13:43   Miranda Hart and is written by miranda [TS]

01:13:45   hart who most people over here with no [TS]

01:13:47   from the show called the Midwife but if [TS]

01:13:50   you want to see her being funny just [TS]

01:13:53   flat-out silly this is the show the hour [TS]

01:13:57   which ran for two series and you know it [TS]

01:14:00   started co-star dominic west and ben [TS]

01:14:02   wishaw and with basically his real [TS]

01:14:04   accent or at least more of a real axis [TS]

01:14:06   and the wire pick which is weird it's [TS]

01:14:09   weird to see Jimmy McNulty speak with an [TS]

01:14:11   English accent and romola garai is Allah [TS]

01:14:14   and the hour and she is a fantastic and [TS]

01:14:17   then a show that was originally on in [TS]

01:14:21   the early sixties early seventies I [TS]

01:14:23   think and then they did a remake of it i [TS]

01:14:25   prefer the remake it's called randall [TS]

01:14:27   and hopkirk deceased which is about two [TS]

01:14:30   private investigators who are partners [TS]

01:14:32   and one of them is killed in the first [TS]

01:14:34   episode and comes back as a ghost and of [TS]

01:14:38   course only his heart often see him and [TS]

01:14:40   in the remake they get older they get a [TS]

01:14:43   little more metaphysical and Tom Baker [TS]

01:14:46   who might know from well anyway he's [TS]

01:14:49   sort of the spirit guide for the [TS]

01:14:51   deceased partner and it's nuts and it's [TS]

01:14:54   it's all written by Charlie Higson you [TS]

01:14:56   might know from The Fast Show or from [TS]

01:14:59   his young James Bond novels and other [TS]

01:15:02   novels free and adults a lot of fun so I [TS]

01:20:02   you have left that you want to just get [TS]

01:20:03   out before we go [TS]

01:20:04   my lightning round shaun the sheep which [TS]

01:20:07   is a spin up spin off kids series from [TS]

01:20:09   the wallace and gromit people and but [TS]

01:20:11   it's not a kid series it's like 10 [TS]

01:20:14   minutes shorts of course no dialogue and [TS]

01:20:16   it's just funny funny like visual comedy [TS]

01:20:20   at just like it's like I again another [TS]

01:20:22   another one's bitch watch things for god [TS]

01:20:24   dammit i watch two and now i have to [TS]

01:20:26   have to spend the rest of my the rest of [TS]

01:20:28   the day watching every one of these [TS]

01:20:29   because they're just so funny [TS]

01:20:31   another series called the posh nosh [TS]

01:20:34   another series like little eight-minute [TS]

01:20:36   videos at their parodies of the most [TS]

01:20:39   pretentious cooking shows you can [TS]

01:20:41   possibly imagine what these two [TS]

01:20:43   incredibly snooty hosts favorite line of [TS]

01:20:46   dialogue I've never forgotten it which [TS]

01:20:49   is like what for one recipe that they [TS]

01:20:51   they set it up by saying now at your [TS]

01:20:53   local gourmet shop there are any number [TS]

01:20:55   of pretentious over overpriced snooty [TS]

01:20:59   gourmet vinegars any one of those will [TS]

01:21:01   do for this recipe yeah keeping up [TS]

01:21:04   appearances which I thought was sort of [TS]

01:21:06   must be on already on the free space [TS]

01:21:08   because everybody's always heard about [TS]

01:21:09   it on on PBS but I still I still can [TS]

01:21:12   always watch it because i love the [TS]

01:21:14   character of hyacinth this middle-class [TS]

01:21:16   English woman who in her mind is [TS]

01:21:19   absolutely upper class and for that [TS]

01:21:22   reason she annoys everybody in her life [TS]

01:21:25   her family her neighbors her husband [TS]

01:21:28   everybody but the great thing because [TS]

01:21:31   the very British thing about this comedy [TS]

01:21:33   is that everybody around her as annoyed [TS]

01:21:36   as they are about her realize that if [TS]

01:21:39   she is so fragile on this point that if [TS]

01:21:42   if you were to say to her look your you [TS]

01:21:45   come from really humble beginnings you [TS]

01:21:47   are definitely middle-class you're fine [TS]

01:21:49   but you have no connection to royalty or [TS]

01:21:52   everything that's great about England [TS]

01:21:53   she would just be destroyed and so they [TS]

01:21:55   walk on eggshells around her second to [TS]

01:21:59   last is going to be marketed wise the [TS]

01:22:03   club best nineteen seventies comedy [TS]

01:22:05   variety act ever these specials that [TS]

01:22:45   just this most amazing thing and also [TS]

01:22:47   just like the the way that these two [TS]

01:22:50   guys work together you imagine that you [TS]

01:22:52   can see that the 20 years that they [TS]

01:22:54   worked together before that that fed [TS]

01:22:56   into their just a bill ability to [TS]

01:22:58   perform as one single organism on the [TS]

01:23:00   show and the last one is this show that [TS]

01:23:03   i just discovered on youtube I must have [TS]

01:23:06   fallen into public domain because that's [TS]

01:23:07   the only reason why the entire series [TS]

01:23:09   would be posted on YouTube in its [TS]

01:23:10   entirety robbie coltrane host a [TS]

01:23:13   educational / documentary series called [TS]

01:23:15   coal trains planes and automobiles [TS]

01:23:17   that's like six episodes and every half [TS]

01:23:20   of every half-hour episodes just him [TS]

01:23:22   talking about a different development in [TS]

01:23:24   the development of the of engines and so [TS]

01:23:28   first episode that he's going to talk [TS]

01:23:30   all about steam engines second episode [TS]

01:23:32   is going to talk about gasoline engines [TS]

01:23:34   then there's the two-stroke engine now [TS]

01:23:36   there's the diesel engine and it's just [TS]

01:23:38   the sort of thing where you can imagine [TS]

01:23:39   this is what you pitch to like a United [TS]

01:23:42   States executive when you really want to [TS]

01:23:45   make the point that look I might make my [TS]

01:23:46   agent forced me to take this meeting I [TS]

01:23:48   really don't want to be [TS]

01:23:50   we're running a are doing a TV show in [TS]

01:23:51   the United States but when you see how [TS]

01:23:54   well that this show is done i realized [TS]

01:23:56   that all i really was interested in [TS]

01:23:58   learning how a diesel engine work so i [TS]

01:24:01   really was interested to see how easy it [TS]

01:24:03   is to take a two-cylinder engine / [TS]

01:24:05   turbot well any hand for hand tools that [TS]

01:24:07   takes 20 minutes for Robbie cultural [TS]

01:24:09   hall isn't that interesting [TS]

01:24:11   so all the entire series is up on [TS]

01:24:13   youtube and I there was another one of [TS]

01:24:16   those things where it was ok let's let's [TS]

01:24:17   fire up the youtube downloader make sure [TS]

01:24:19   we have all these episodes in the queue [TS]

01:24:21   for future reading because it's just so [TS]

01:24:23   entertaining alright I these are all [TS]

01:24:25   great i'm gonna throw in a few more [TS]

01:24:27   Erica mention broadchurch which is very [TS]

01:24:30   sad very good that's also Chris Chibnall [TS]

01:24:33   who did Torchwood and some doctor who [TS]

01:24:35   but so since that was taken i'm going to [TS]

01:24:38   mention blackpool which starred david [TS]

01:24:41   Morrissey and david tennant David 10 in [TS]

01:24:44   a very similar role actually to [TS]

01:24:46   broadchurch although this is a wild show [TS]

01:24:48   you may know this because it was remade [TS]

01:24:50   as as a Viva laughlin starring hugh [TS]

01:24:53   jackman on CBS and it was terrible but [TS]

01:24:56   the original is fantastic it's like a [TS]

01:24:57   jukebox musical they sing and the music [TS]

01:25:01   is playing in the background to like [TS]

01:25:02   Elvis songs and a bunch of other songs [TS]

01:25:05   and so it's a murder mystery musical [TS]

01:25:08   family drama it is a bizarre combination [TS]

01:25:10   you know it's fantastic David Tennant [TS]

01:25:14   and sarah parish who was the crazy weird [TS]

01:25:18   spider woman in that Christmas episode [TS]

01:25:20   of Doctor Who but her chemistry in this [TS]

01:25:22   with david tennant is much better than [TS]

01:25:24   it wasn't an episode of Doctor Who david [TS]

01:25:26   Morrissey does a fantastic performance [TS]

01:25:28   the the way I i can't recommend that [TS]

01:25:33   this show highly enough you should [TS]

01:25:34   definitely check out [TS]

01:25:35   blackpool or as it's usually cold in the [TS]

01:25:37   u.s. viva blackpool very very good weird [TS]

01:25:41   though just so weird with the music [TS]

01:25:42   don't let the music turn off you get [TS]

01:25:44   into it after a while when they're [TS]

01:25:45   singing along to songs and stuff and it [TS]

01:25:47   actually becomes kind of emotionally [TS]

01:25:48   affecting so highly recommend blackpool [TS]

01:25:50   we mentioned it earlier Pierre [TS]

01:25:52   serafinowicz is bizarre kind of [TS]

01:25:55   educational training films as TV sitcom [TS]

01:25:59   called look around you it it is it is [TS]

01:26:02   like nothing you have ever seen other [TS]

01:26:04   than maybe a movie in your math class in [TS]

01:26:07   elementary school and it is hilariously [TS]

01:26:10   good the first season is much more like [TS]

01:26:12   instructional videos the second season [TS]

01:26:16   is basically lost episodes of a 1980s [TS]

01:26:18   computer show and they are bizarre and [TS]

01:26:22   hilarious and if you've ever wondered [TS]

01:26:25   where the word maths comes from the [TS]

01:26:28   answer is it's an it's an acronym for [TS]

01:26:30   nonsense but you can look that up on [TS]

01:26:33   YouTube a lot of good clips from look [TS]

01:26:35   around you on YouTube but definitely [TS]

01:26:36   wear [TS]

01:26:36   checking out as i mentioned spy the [TS]

01:26:39   sitcom which I actually got turned on to [TS]

01:26:40   by Lisa Schmeisser on an episode of the [TS]

01:26:42   incomparable it's a fun actually family [TS]

01:26:44   sitcom about a guy who ends up becoming [TS]

01:26:46   a spy accidentally and then he's he's a [TS]

01:26:48   he's a divorced dad and his son is [TS]

01:26:51   actually more on the ball but he is and [TS]

01:26:53   it's wacky and zany and that's on hulu [TS]

01:26:55   and is current and very funny i'll throw [TS]

01:26:59   in a shout out to ashes to ashes which [TS]

01:27:01   is the sort of sequel to life on Mars if [TS]

01:27:03   you like Miami Vice and other eighties [TS]

01:27:04   cop shows it does for the eighties what [TS]

01:27:06   life on Mars did for the seventies since [TS]

01:27:10   Erica mention the office i will mention [TS]

01:27:11   extras which sometimes i think is maybe [TS]

01:27:13   a better show than the office I don't [TS]

01:27:16   know it's certainly less painful to [TS]

01:27:17   watch in the Ricky Gervais space [TS]

01:27:20   genre of sitcom and then I want to put [TS]

01:27:23   uh I want to put in a good word for [TS]

01:27:25   James Burke's documentary series [TS]

01:27:26   connections from the late 70s coat which [TS]

01:27:29   is one of the most amazing things I've [TS]

01:27:30   ever seen everybody said yeah we're [TS]

01:27:32   literally he will tell you this story [TS]

01:27:34   that this this anecdote that seems [TS]

01:27:35   completely unimportant and then he will [TS]

01:27:38   spend an hour connecting how the fact [TS]

01:27:41   that this merchant in the netherlands in [TS]

01:27:44   1540 discovering a new way to bond [TS]

01:27:48   silver onto a plate leads through series [TS]

01:27:53   of steps to the creation of the atomic [TS]

01:27:55   bomb and every week it's like that was [TS]

01:27:57   like what how [TS]

01:27:58   huh how is that possible it's amazing [TS]

01:28:00   stuff so I remember my mind blame being [TS]

01:28:02   blown by that on PBS in the seventies [TS]
