06:02 pm - Pointless
OMG Pointless is such a good show too. I think matildabj might have particularly enjoyed today's episode. So sweet. Everyone on it is really nice and lovely. It's like the complete opposite to Breaking Bad.

What a shame, but you will enjoy it on i-Player. I think I'll let you find out the bit at the end that made me smile.

The way Richard said 'I love you too' in the most natural way possible, I thought it was so nice, such a refreshing change on telly nowadays

He's quite open about the fact that he's deliberately trying to make it 'Brokeback Mountain-esque'. AFAIK he's straight (got 2 kids) but it's nice to see 2 blokes that are happy to be gently flirtatious for comedy value.

*Is confused*

What, pray tell, is it? It hasn't crossed my radar before.

It's a quiz show, that's on at 5.15 on BBC1, so you can only watch it if you skive out of work early. It's very amiable and amateurish. It's run by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman. I catch it whenever I get home in time.

Amateurish? *splutters* I'll tweet Richard Osman that you said that. Mind you, he'd probably just agree...

Amateurish in the most adorable way though. I like the way it isn't all slick, and when they tell a joke you can tell they just thought of it that minute, and sometimes it falls a bit flat.

It's like the complete opposite to Breaking Bad.

I am just filled with happiness that there is at least one sentence on the internet comparing Pointless with Breaking Bad. I hope eventually there might be more.

It was SO LOVELY today, and I like that they're doing a special 200th episode tomorrow.

Yes. I went out the room and missed the very end, but H says they are getting back all the pairs who scored 200 (ie TOTAL FAIL).

And they're hoping some of them will score 200 again! So they can be brought back for the 400th show...

Remembering some of them they DEFINITELY WILL. Predicted almost-last words: 'well, I know one answer that is right, but I'll just take a gamble.'
