I know, I know. I'm about twenty years behind everyone else. For whatever reason, I didn't watch Life On Mars when it was first broadcast. In fact it completely passed me by until series two started being promoted. And it looked tempting, but I didn't want to come into it mid way through.

The new TV has arrived which is good - watching episodes on Futurama on your laptop PC just isn't the same if you ask me. It's an IDTV - integrated with digital. I did contemplate going for a cheaper model without the digital element (actually in the clearence range) but due to delivery issues (i.e. they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered), decided to get the digital one. Analogue TVs are getting harder and harder to find now - and it has to be said, rightly so.
What happened to the days when things lasted? I'm sure they existed. I remember owning a TV for about 12 years - and it got transported around the country a few times to boot... Sadly it doesn't seem to happen very often any more. Just two months short of being five years old, and my TV has decided to give up the ghost.
Have to confess that I didn't watch Eurovision - Catherine and myself were being more cultured and seeing the fantastic Waterson Family live at the Royal Albert Hall - but I came home to find we'd not only lost Eurovision, but we'd spectacularly come in joint second-to-last.
I didn't watch Making Your Mind up last night but caught a bit of the rather shambolic results programme (spectacularly they announced one person to be the winner, only to five seconds later decide they got it wrong).
A couple of weeks ago, I invested in a PVR - one of those digital video recorder things. It had been bubbling in my mind for a while, especially as I seemed to have a never ending pile of VHS tapes floating around the room with stuff on them, that had to be watched in strict order lest anything get missed.
I have to say, I am getting just a little fed up of seeing the offices I work in, on TV.
I'm sure half the blogosphere is busy drooling over the iPhone right now, but I was more interested in hearing about the Apple TV. Well I was interested until I actually took my eyes away from a very average looking grey box, and looked at the detail instead.
As a Lost adict, the news that Sky have poached the programme from Channel 4 so that they can put it on Sky One, is not one I especially wish to hear. Especially as I don't have pay-TV.
Cybermen AND Daleks? ARGHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
