Enjoyed it, but I'm afraid I still don't find Doug Stanhope entertaining in the least.

Each to their own, but though Stanhope was on top form myself and one of the highlights!

Cannot stand the female Barry ****peas, the last part of that segment felt like an eternity.

I thought Stanhope was on good form last night, I also enjoyed the female barry ****peas, the only one i Really thought dragged the programme out was the poet, so glad to see he wasnt there.

Wasn't sure about having guests on to discuss a film - assume that'll be a regular feature but I prefer the one-man presenter format.

Did love the Doug Stanhope bit though - superb. Did think the rest was also good stuff - will deffo tune in each week.

I agree. Never once found the Stanhope segments funny. Half of the time I get bored and fast forward through it.

Stanhope's awesome & has the best catchphrase around. Plenty of room for both him & ****peas.


At least Brooker hasn't brought back the interminable Tim Key & his 'comedy' poetry.

I have never laughed at Tim Key.
I like Doug Stanhope.

I can't bear the ****peas pair.

I liked this overall, but not sure about the 'review'.

Don't understand the hate for Tim Key - always got a laugh from me, especially 'the bad gentleman'

Oh - and Black Mirror is back next week: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/news/...sed-watch.html

Tim Key amused me when he was first on but he very soon became a boring one-trick pony and the irony of him underplaying soon became a boring seemingly no talent poet.

I also love signature Stanhopes line, and thought he made some great comments this week, not hilarious, doesnt have to be, this is tv for grown ups, it was interesting and wry.
