Okay, so it's about time for my kinda-weekly blog post, isn't it? :/

I'd love to claim my life's been so amazingly interesting the last couple of weeks that I haven't had time to post much, but I think we all know that's not true. I dunno, I'm supposed to be a logical person, but after a month at school I still don't really like routine.

That's not to say I haven't been doing the same things every week, though at the moment it seems to be more based around TV than anything else. The Daily Show is on every weekday at 8:30, and often makes me look at what's on next and watch that as well. Works out quite nicely for More4, I suppose. Other than that there's not really anything on Monday-Wednesday, so I'll watch The Simpsons if I'm bored.

Thursday is the day when everything's on next to each other, and I generally get nothing done, homework or otherwise. Daily Show on More4, then Extras, Mitchell and Webb, and Mock the Week on BBC TWO (don't blame me for shouting, that's how it's spelt), then Late Edition on BBC FOUR (oh, ffs...).

"That Mitchell and Webb Look" is worth noting solely for the fact that the intro music has cowbell in it, and the comedy ain't half bad either. The Tesco Late Edition is also consistently amusing - I'd like to call Marcus Brigstocke the British answer to Jon Stewart, but frankly that's being too nice to Stewart. Brigstocke just always seems to find a perfectly eloquent and entertaining way of saying exactly what we're all thinking about <insert target here>, and then some. I suppose you had to have watched last week's show and heard his opinion on Fox News to understand me...

Oh, and Friday doesn't disappoint on the intelligent comedy either. New series of HIGNFY on BBC one (see, they can't even be consistently annoying with the capitalization), and QI on TWO, which is worth watching just for Alan Davies. Plus Bremner, Bird and Fortune on 4 on Saturday, of course.

Then, have nothing to do on Sunday because you're a sad geek who watches far too much telly and did all your maths homework yesterday, and fill time writing pointless blog posts. Yay.

cool post. i enjoyed it emmensely. :) It greatly bemused me when you pointed out that physics is just putting numbers into the correct formulae, although it wasn't on this blog. If Mitchell n Web has the same Mitchell from Peep Show in it i'll check it out dude, i'l check it out. / Comment from Ben on 26 Oct 2006 at 09:59.

Bit late now, the series ended, though repeats are on BBC THREE if you have digital.
And yeah, that's exactly how Mr Wilkinson described this unit of work. Doesn't fill people with joy, but what in physics does? / Comment from Robert Marshall / [Admin] on 26 Oct 2006 at 10:05.
