    I just watched an episode of lost in space. Dr Smith entered Judy Robinson in an intergalactic beauty pageant and as always trouble happened.

    A recap of yesterday's baseball. The Dodgers really do annoy me to no end.

    I never saw Mumfie. Which is good as it looks like childhood nightmare fuel.

    Episode 10 of season 3 of Rick and Morty this morning when I saw that the final episode had finally gone up.
    Binge watched The Good Place season 1 yesterday and this morning of what is on netflix so far of season 2. It has Kristine Bell in it and I've always liked her since her Veronica Mars days. I'm enjoying her performance in this series.

    Pointless Celebrities

    Red Dwarf's Sydney Stevenson (Irene in Entangled) was competing alongside her famous father Robert Lindsay. They got all the way to the final but unfortunately didn't manage to get a pointless answer.

    Watched a couple of episodes of Mindhunter on Netflix last night. Produced/directed by David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club etc.). Looks promising so far.

    Mumfie should appear on the show alongside Noseybonk.

    There was an article in Fortean Times magazine a few months back that suggested the seventies and early eighties were a bit weird and creepy. I'd always felt so but thought perhaps it was just my memory of it. Mumfie wasn't mentioned in the article and subsequent discussions (though it should have been), but things like the opening titles to Picture Box and Near and Far were, as well as programmes such as Jigsaw (in which Noseybonk appeared) and Hickory House. The theme to the 'fuzzy felt' adaptation of The Moomins also stands out as somehow off-kilter. How much of this weirdness stems from imperfect recollection I'm not sure.

    EDIT Perhaps I'll adapt this post into a new thread and see what others think.

    Watched another episode of The Good Place on netflix. Lost count of the episode I am up to, think it's ep 7 of season 2.

    Made progress with Doctor Who. Still on the first Doctor, William Hartnell and up to The Reign of Terror episodes which are about the French Revolution. I've grown attached to the first doctor so I am going to sad when I do get up to the second Doctor.

    Been watching "Are you being Served". Finished season 1 and most of season 2 so far. The first episode of "Are you being Served, Again" too. I really like the original.
    Watched most of the Broncos/Giants game last night before I had to go to bed. Taped the rest but don't know if I'll actually watch it now. My beloved Broncos lost. At home. To a Giants team that hadn't won a game all year.

    Been watching some Taskmaster whenever I'm already on UKTV Play. Interesting how some of the most mundane tasks give some of the most entertaining results.

    It would give even a horror specialist like you nightmares, Neil.

    Tv was extremely weird. I put my own personal weirdness down to horror and a Jamie and his magic torch obsession. A lot of it was also cheaply animated or made. That gave lots of programmes a real budget emotiinless look. Noggin the nog was pretty dark, but it was Scandinavian, so duh! The moonmins had disturbing music that was pretty joyless. Remember Pipkins and Harley hare, not only did he look creepy, but he was a blatant pervert to. Basil brush and his dirty Gertie at number 30. Jamie and his magic torch starts with some really eerie music and an empty dark street before the guitars twang in. The banana splits were acid casualties. Michael Bentines potty time was surreal, the animal kwakers were creepy and their mouths never moved, and bagpuss looked a thousand years old. Odd times, very odd times, and crystal tipps was a captain of the green army to

    Is it just me or does noseybonk look like he'd be perfectly at home as a member of the band slipknot? I can just picture him on stage playing drums in the vertical position

    I think he'd be too disturbing even for Slipknot.
