Zappa, a 2 hour documentary about the bould Frank will be aired on Friday BBC 4

The blurb
'The documentary team was granted exclusive access by Frank's wife Gail to a vast collection of unreleased music, movies, incomplete projects, unseen interviews and unheard concert recordings. Much of these were deteriorating and in danger of being lost forever'.

Surely if there was ever a show that tore the ass out of it then it has to be "the walking dead"

Threw in the towel myself.  Couldnt live the the monologues.  It had the feel of a show that didnt know where it was going.

I thought it had the opposite problem. It knew exactly where it was going. Over and over again.  Look here! Here's a place we can make a community, all we need is to fence off the zombies. Oh no, bad guys want to destroy us.  Let's have Rick make a terrible leadership decision that will result in more of us dying, and having to start over.

Or as a mate of mine that ditched it quite early on called the show "open the gate, close the gate, open the gate, close the gate". An entire season went on like that.

I have just started watching a bit of the last season. I'm interested in how they finish it but from being a great show it really did die a death. There were some great series of it though - the guvnor and Negan were great villains.

US Comedy on BBC iplayer called Dave about a Jewish wannabe Rapper, watched first 4 episodes and it's had some serious big belly laughs (plus some mediocrity), but pretty good

Negan was brilliant.
It did lose its way a bit, but I stuck with it. This final season is just ok.
A bit of a poor villain I thought. Just interested to see how they finish it off really.

I just watched a short series on IPlayer, The Cleaner with Greg Davies. It was really good.

Man Down has its moments. It was missing that bit of spark after Rik Mayall died though

I thought Taskmaster was Rubbish
