    Eurovision: ESC 2019

    At least with France you could say, fancy that, a fat ballet dancer/deaf dancer, so there was a novelty factor. Slovenia was like the prelude to the Eastern European version of Straw Dogs.

    Ghosts (Sitcom)

    Tonight's had an "end of the series" mood, but I think there's one more to go. The details are great, like the fraudster using handwash after shaking hands with them! The pilot ghosts were very funny.

    Adventures In Sleep Paralysis

    If you've convinced yourself you've banished it, that will probably be enough to get rid of it. If it hasn't returned in years, then I doubt it will return at all, it might just be something you "grow out of", for want of a better phrase, like sleepwalking.

    Strange Deaths

    Are there increasing numbers of dangerous cults arising in the world right now? Seems to be one in the news every week now. There's even a new one mentioned as the first story in the latest FT. Say what you like about Christianity, most people don't go to church to fire crossbow bolts at each...

    Adventures In Sleep Paralysis

    Sounds awful! Interesting you say sleeping on your back would trigger it, suggesting a physical cause as well as a psychological one. Maybe more a physical one, in fact?

    Horror TV

    Hmm... WWDitS was OK, I suppose, I laughed a few times and it is promising, but I was a shade underwhelmed. Not as funny as the film, basically. Ghosts does much the same thing (without the snazzy visual effects) and is a lot funnier. Apparently it takes a while to find its feet, though. The...

    Horror TV

    What We Do in the Shadows, TV version, starts tonight on BBC2 in the UK, at 21.45. If it's as funny as the film, it'll be well worth tuning for - Matt Berry's in it, for a start.

    Eurovision: ESC 2019

    Reading about online, Madge might have done better without displaying the Palestinian flag, didn't go down too well. And Iceland started showing Palestinian flags too when the camera cut to them during the voting (and cut away pretty sharpish). I don't watch Eurovision for politics! It's nice...

    The Whinge Thread, Resurrected

    I must be really lucky, I've never had this problem when I've ordered a parcel (touch wood). The new Ken Loach film asks us to take pity on a parcel delivery driver - I'm guessing it won't find a sympathetic audience.

    What TV Are You Watching?

    Anyone watch the new Shane Meadows series, The Virtues? Not much happened in episode 1, but a lot went on, if you see what I mean. Excellent Stephen Graham performance, but I suppose Meadows knows how to play to his strengths by now. Intrigued to see what the big secret is.
