British TV programmes - review, debate and reccommend

Discovered this programme a few months back and it returns tonight. So if there are any Brits with nothing to do between 10- 10:30 tonight watch BBC2.

It's a panel game a bit like Have I got news for you but the panels are made up of six commedians who are very politically incorrect and take the piss out of the news and people in the news.

For those not in the UK i have tried on emule to find old episodes - but can't get them.


Hi, I've changed the title as we have moved on to other programmes

It's alright, nothing special, I'm watching Prison Break anyway.

The Apprentice

Missed Wednesday's episode cos I was on holiday and hoped to be able to see the full episode online when I came back (like last year)...but they only do a shitty 2 minute recap

Re: For UK people - Mock the Week

There must be a repeat of the Apprentice somewhere during the week on BBC 3 or something, I hope so because I'm going to miss it on Wednesday.

You missed a good one, the guy who got fired was pure cringeworthy comedy gold.

I saw boardroom highlights But if you haven't checked his audition (online) it really really really really is cringeworthy! The guy is a complete ass. Believe it or not...another car salesman as well

Then went on to give some Any Given Sunday Al Pacino like speech about how they are going to go out and batter and destroy and kill in their efforts to win.

He then gets moved over to the other side, and the women fucked him over. And then he cried (he actually cried). He must have known he was gone.

Seemed like an ok family guy in the interview thing afterwards, but he came across as a bluff and no substance kind of guy during the show itself.

Re: For UK people - Mock the Week

yeah that guy was never going to make it. but to be honest a lot of them are cringeworthy, annoying, ass lickers and alan sugar is going to rip them to shreds. this weeks task is about dogs, its going to be hilarious.

mock the week is also very funny and its on tonight, omg.

I love prison break. I think tonight is the season finale here. Is that on par with you guys, or are you behind?

We're probably behind, at the moment what's her name just got drowned in the bath tub and the complete fuck up who never dies just caught up with the money in the nice hotel.

TBH, I thought about 4 episodes ago that it was close to the end, it's labouring on a little now. The fucked up detective is an interesting character, he has made the series. I only watched bits and pieces of the 1st series, but I've watched all of the 2nd series so far.

Yea the detective has definetly made it more interesting. I found the 1st season to be better than this one. I also think its dragging on way too long but nevertheless its a good show.
