Review: The Trip to Italy

The Trip to Italy
Impersonations are the work of the unfunny, slightly creepy guy you don't want to get stuck next to at the works do, as anyone who has heard my Nelson Mandela will confirm. Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan do them constantly throughout both seasons of The Trip not, I think, because that's what they revert to when improvising with each other, but because it suggests that they are slightly tedious company in real life, while simultaneously being funny to watch. Which seems to me pretty much the whole point.

One thing I like about the BAFTA TV Awards is how none of them is called 'Best'� anything. What's more British than that? It's like sports day when the kid who turned up with no kit and had to run in his pants still got a prize because everyone's supposed to get treated the same. If that kid were here today and not strung out on glue in a car park stairwell somewhere, he'd tell you the BAFTA TV Awards 2011 winners are all after the jump.

Kiss my face, Alan's back
Fosters may be terrible watery slop masquerading as lager, but we should still stop and raise a glass of other available beverage to its makers in thanks for a couple of things.
