Yes James, i was especially pleased recently when a
music clue was YYZ by Rush, straight away i knew it was
Morse Code in music!
Pointless is another must see, if i`m on a late shift
it`s set to record on the Sky box!

I keep reading and hearing people comparing BLACK MIRROR to THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but it reminds me more of the 90s version of THE OUTER LIMITS.

I should say I am also addicted to Pointless. Whenever I am back in the UK, I make it my business to be in front of a TV set when it's on.

It seems all the Brit`s love Pointless, i think it`s
because you can play along at home testing your own
knowledge on subjects close to your heart, often beating
the contestants.Recently the final had Classic Rock
albums chosen by the finalists, you had to name any
album by Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden or AC/DC, i knew about 6
Pointless answers, but the contestants didn`t.

Coincidentally, this just popped up on my Facebook page
`On This Day` from 2015!
`Just got about 5 Pointless answers on Pointless
concerning Showaddywaddy and Bay City Rollers
songs,should i be proud or ashamed?` ;-)

LOL, Bill.

Pointless also seems to have radically improved the British viewing public's knowledge of the periodic table.

True, my only gripe is it seems that, whenever two males
reach the final they always pick the `Sport` category!

I'm not a big British TV watcher but Absolutely Fabulous used to make me laugh soooo hard!  Also, back in the old days I used to really enjoy Prisoner: Cell Block H.  Oh wait, that was Australia.

Pointless is great fun. I got a reduculous number of pointless answers when the question was name Peter Gabriel albums. 

Itís always good when you get the single pointless answer in a category as well. I remember doing that when they asked for characters who appeared in all three original Star Wars movies. I would have lost serious credibility if I hadnít got that one. In fact, I managed to make everyone which was expected of me
