    Watching broadcast TV. They still make adverts! I must assume they're employing layers of irony I can't penetrate. These can't be serious.

    @holgate @mathowie From barb.co.uk/whats-new/week… . Tend to be BBC2//BBC4/C4; rather than downmarket channels.

    @blech @holgate I don’t watch any of them, so I’m improvising here. So long as I don’t repeat myself then I’ll be, erm, ah… DAMN.

    @holgate @mathowie Same here - I didn’t realise there was a bigger concept than just “University Challenge”.

    @holgate @mathowie As you say, the latter presumably have Radio 4 as their collective ancestor.

    @holgate @mathowie Yeah, I think there’s a distinction between the older celebrity quizzes and newer(ish) (mainly) comedian quizzes.

    @holgate @mathowie (Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You, 9 Out Of 10 Cats, QI, etc, etc, etc)

    @holgate @mathowie Related: Does the US have the celebrity panel quizzes? Comedians giving “spontaneous” witty answers to questions?

    Brilliant (if shaky) mundanity: youtube.com/watch?v=NLjCvi… A boy’s multi-part commentaries of washing machine cycles.

    Thinking of everyone who watched Brian Pern (S02E01) and thought "that made-up game's not running on a ZX Spectrum!" We're so cool.

    @jamesweiner The rumour sites have photos leaked from Chinese factories that suggest 2015 will bring new, larger hands.
