I kind of prefer Seinfeld to Curb, but I'm in a minority among my friends on that one!

Has anyone else seen any of Victoria, with Jenna Coleman? Seemed a bit plodding to me - and she's exactly the way you'd expect Jenna Coleman playing Queen Victoria to be.

I was going to watch it just to oggle Jenna LOL, but I didn't think it would be worth it. I wouldn't have thought Jenna looked like Queen Victoria to be honest.

That's poor casting.

Actors looking anything like the characters they're supposed to be playing is so five years ago now. I'm surprised they didn't cast a black woman or something! :D

Perhaps ITV couldn't get Idris Elba!

Indeed... the first (of many) trailers for it that I saw had her shouting "when i want your opinion I will ask for it!" No wonder they thought the actress who played Clara was a perfect fit for the role.

Donald Glovers new show Atlanta looks promising. Episode 2 was a lot better than the first and had me laughing quite a bit, completely different to his episodes of 30 Rock though.
For three long days, I felt the cold hand of death on my shoulder. Lost in the depths of despair I tried to figure out what I had done to deserve this. I wasn't an evil person. The worst thing I'd ever done was kick a pig - School trip to Heston Farm, 1964, I maintain it was self-defence.
