Another late blog from my bed tonight.

Watched the new series of Little Britain this evening, had very mixed feeling about this first episode. There were some funny bits, namely the new character Mrs. Emery, an OAP with extreme bladder problems.

The regular characters were back – Lou & Andy, Daffyd Thomas (the only gay in the village), Vicky Pollard, Sebastian and Fat Fighters however I thought they brought nothing new to series 3.

It is almost as if the shows creators Matt Lucas and David Walliams are running thin on ideas. This was always inevitable; the success of Little Britain was down to the catchphrases and simple predictability. It is always obvious Andy would change his mind at the last minute and get out of his wheelchair behind Lou’s back. We have come to expect Daffyd will complain he is “the only gay in the village” only to come face to face with a fellow homosexual whom he will then insult.

You can however have too much of a good thing. The predictable humour was very funny at first but then it just gets a tad boring. Looking forward to next weeks episode though, it is still a great series and I am interested to see sketches from the new characters like Mrs. Emery and the man with his Thai Transvestite bride.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
