but did anyone else think that the big brother/weakest link as portrayed in saturday's Dr. Who would be a good idea? Obviously the housemates couldn't really be chosen from random, but possibly long-term prisoners, the unemployed, NL voters, single-parents under the age of 25, committed religious types, etc. could be up for selection.
Discuss, or abuse chicken (what's happened to JellyheadJimmy, is he back into solitary, or did his dad catch him using the PC again) or whatever.

I liked the sound of two of the shows we didn't see: "Call My Bluff" with real guns, or "Countdown" in which you have 30 seconds to stop the bomb going off.

Dundee, you still watching Dr Who? Got a bored after 5 mins of the first episode....gave it the benefit of the doubt and watched the next couple but have given up all hope of it turning into a decent programme.

The one at the weekend was a good reality TV satire. Final episode this Saturday, which looks rather exciting from the trailer.

It's one of those programs that I always watch when it's on.
Mostly just for nostalgiac reasons (who else here remembers William Hartnell and the blessed Patrick Troughton?), but in my view it's easily the best series for a long time and Ecclestone does bring some vitality to the role.
In comparison to some of the previous series it's pretty quirkily written, with a fairly good (or at least wisely-used) budget and a reasonable cast.
But that's not the point. Did you not think it would be a good idea if all reality tv shows did end with the losers being executed?

For sure. It's the only way around New Labour's "all shall have prizes" mentality.

Without doubt...perhaps you've stumbled on a new Big Brother idea, I'd certainly pay to see the likes of Jade (what's her name) and other z list pretend-celebs being blown apart!

Was a big fan of the original series of Dr Who, would possibly be more appropriate to make a series of films when the scripts could be made into a proper programmes rather than being crammed into such a short space of time.

so when did you actually have your sense of humour removed and was it painful?

Well Davros will probably make an appearance next week. Pretty good match there.
