    I thought it was a Casualty spin-off about a travelling locum for years. Saturday night TV and all that.

    uk comedy is in a nadir

    Kevin Bridges is even funnier to Scottish people because the observations are so specific and detailed and accurate it's hard to not recognise them in your own life. Britain seems to have no interest in new talent. Tangential but I've noticed that 15-20 years ago there were always new faces...

    Cosmetic Surgery

    even when I dress myself, generally I have a "style" but some days it's a blazer and trousers and some days its a jumper and jeans, depending how I feel and want to present. It's all malleable so why shouldn't our faces and bodies match our identities now?

    Cosmetic Surgery

    it's an extension of our emotional/mental selves, I reckon. Your identity as a person is never fixed - I'm not the same person at work as I am with my friends nor my family, so why shouldn't I change my physical appearance if I'm already constantly editing and presenting versions of myself as a...

    Tinashe does music videos really well I think - the budgets are obviously limited but the creativity and her star presence are so captivating

    I don't mind that but mostly because I associate it with Missy Elliott who invented performance art

    Watching music videos for hours

    I hate the trend for "event" music videos where they break up the song and visuals for some spoken word nonsense to advance the "plot" along. Just do all that stuff at the start and finish, or just not at all, please.

    Girlfriends' opening theme and credits are amazing though, even seeing the word gets the song stuck in my head

    uk comedy is in a nadir

    I wouldn't say I disliked it, but it's a very odd show. It feels like nobody is meant to be likeable and their flaws are what make them interesting, watchable characters - but in a different way to normal sitcoms. It's not like you're wanting anyone to succeed in their goals because they're all...

    uk comedy is in a nadir

    it wasn't even that, although it was wretched in itself. It was when the show abandoned all pretence of being realistic, replacing the biting-but-loving barbs between the characters with physical comedy, a Halloween episode which was particularly arduous to endure

    uk comedy is in a nadir

    Girlfriends is astonishing, what if Sex And The City but it's all black women, and instead of being fashionable and enviable they're all shrill and bitchy and unlikeable, and what if even though the show is about women and sisterhood we still insist on having a fucking man in the opening cast...

    Cosmetic Surgery

    even if I ended up botched I would still be happy because it would tell the world that I was successful enough to afford multiple surgeries and not have to worry about the consequences beyond ending up in some tabloid photo articles about bad surgery

    uk comedy is in a nadir

    Sister Sister is really odd because Jackee Harry has incredible comic timing and the character of Lisa Landry is a gift, but the rest of the show is abysmal, truly some of the worst "comedy" ever made.

    Moesha was excellent, right up until the last season and a very particular episode four or five in where it suddenly becomes very, very bad. Brandy and Countess Vaughn are fantastic and Sheryl Lee Ralph does amazing things with a one-note character. (tell me you wasted time in lockdown without...

    if I could afford it I would have so much plastic surgery - not that I dislike myself but I would like myself more
