My favourite television programmes:
Game of Thrones
The Thick of It
The West Wing
The Daily Show/The Colbert Report
The Mighty Boosh
Flight of the Conchords
Louis Theroux’s documentaries
Screenwipe/Newswipe (not a big fan of Charlie’s more recent shows)
Garth Merenghi’s Dark Place
Not really television, but I listen (and sadly re-listen) to Mark Kermode’s Radio 5 Live film review show/podcast. I also really like The Bugle podcast.
I suppose I should also mention that I really love stand up comedy, particularly Eddie Izzard, Dylan Moran, Tim Minchin, Stewart Lee, Dara O’Briain, Bill Bailey, Josie Long, Richard Herring, David O’Doherty, Demetri Martin, and Simon Amstell.
So…yes. If I’ve listed a show here it’s because I love and know it well enough to be able to quote at least 60% of the episodes verbatim. Be forewarned that all of the above will appear intermittently on my blog.
