Spotted an ASTONISHING Friends Easter egg in Episodes
Season three, episode three: Carol and Castor are in front of a board showing the network schedule, arguing about whether Matt LeBlanc's "Pucks" should get cancelled. In the 8.30 timeslot is a show called "Six of One", which is the title under which the Friends pilot was shot. And I thought this was going to be a quiet Saturday.

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.

Four months back in Albert Square and I never want to leave
It's been something of a revelation to me, as the worst kind of TV snob who likes to watch and discuss "high-end", mainly American, drama, that four months back in the snug embrace of Eastenders has been quite so rewarding.

Tom Hardy Peaky Blinders role to be entirely horse-mounted
Tom Hardy's much-talked-about role in the second season of Peaky Blinders will comprise his being on a horse talking to himself while no other actors appear on screen, we can exclusively reveal. With his life collapsing around him, the character will ride the horse from Birmingham to London, unaccountably talking like Ivor the Engine, while the camera frames him and nothing else. The episode will play out in real time, and last for two days.

Louis Theroux's LA Stories: Edge of Life
Having shed the freak-show tenor of his early work, Louis Theroux has become a documentarian you trust implicitly - even when the film ends on an implausible high note.

Line of Duty: season two, episode five
Yes, that six-minute long shot at the end of True Detective's fourth episode was amazing. But in episode five of Line of Duty, there was something just as groundbreaking.

No, me neither. Maybe they're doing a Duke Nukem movie and he got the lead role? (HT to Rob.)
