    Season 7 has such a bad rep, but I quite liked it. I haven't seen it since it originally aired though. Must make myself watch 6 so I can finish up the rewatch...

    I wanted to fill the gap in my soul left by Lip Service and keep in touch with the zeitgayst, so I watched Channel 4's The Bisexual, a hot new "dramedy" (like a comedy, but the characters are all cunts and the jokes aren't funny).

    It was refreshing to see a show finally cover what it's like to date as a young person in London. I'll be following!

    There were a couple of ok lines this week, it wasn't as charmless as the previous one.

    It's really shooting for this grittier "British version of Girls" self-confessional niche, and it has the same problem where the characters only seem like plausible human beings for a few minutes an episode. Lots of it basically sound like Twitter posts read aloud, but I think that's probably a London thing.

    The second episode was definitely better than the first. It is strange, sometimes I am completely indifferent to the lead and sometimes I think she is wonderful. Anyway, I like it enough to stick with it, even if it definitely feels like it won't return for a second run.

    Eventually got to watching this. Very enjoyable and they certainly played up his hardest working drummer in rock credentials. I see he is touring with BOOTLEG BLONDIE next year, presumably Debs and Chris wanted a rest.

    This third episode took absolutely ages to get going, especially waiting through all of very brave pointless sex scenes.

    I think what the main character said about the incompatibility of gay and straight lifestyles was really perceptive, but nothing happened for near enough the entire episode. I suppose it was ok as a depressive mood piece type of thing but the pacing was totally off.

    I finished season two of The Deuce at the weekend. Excellent. One final, mid eighties season to go.

    Darlene's exit from Larry's apartment in the last episode was quite a moment.

    I'm not sure who at Sky Arts decided that Julian Lennon merited a ninety minute documentary, but they were quite wrong.

    Is anyone watching Celeb Coach Trip? Roxy Pallett has just turned up (with George Sampson) and immediately lost her bikini bottom in the sea, completely accidentally it goes without saying.

    They really are a dreadful bunch: James Jordan, Jedward, Charlotte Crosby and her oaf of a boyfriend...

    And MUTYA :(

    Coach Trip...

    MUTYA (feat Lisa Maffia) WON, despite making often minimal efforts to join in with the tasks. YAY.

    I know it probably isn't usual Moopy fare but this week's episode of 24 Hours in Police Custody was absolutely fucking delicious.

    This series of Derry Girls has flown right by. Easily one of the most reliably enjoyable things on every week and the last three with the funeral, prom and Clinton visit have all been amazing.

    I AM A DERRY GIRL :D :(

    Currently watching 'Miriam's Dead Good Adventure', in which Miriam Margolyes is looking at how we prepare for death. Today is part two of two, and she has gone to San Francisco where a woman is using ketamine in psychotherapy to prepare for death. It's really quite interesting. Have you heard of others using it that way, @big ron? Not so much specifically for death, but in psychotherapy? Although it makes perfect sense, thinking about it.

    Ketamine has a really established evidence base for the use in treatment resistant depression. Also, there are a lot of ongoing trials examining the role of Psilocyblin in depression, which my trust is currently taking part in. Exciting

    Yep, a lot of people who've had drug resistant depression have seen amazing results with Ketamine. I believe there is now an FDA approved nasal spray you can buy in the US. Lucky yanks.

    From personal experience I 'self medicated' with a lot of ketamine at a time I really should have been depressed and came out the other side fine, so I've declared myself a medical pioneer.

    I've seen this too, and end of life care, which again people have been playing around with as a concept for years. Aldous Huxley was tripping his tits off as he took his final breath.

    Frankie Boyle's New World Order. Only telly show I won't miss at the minute. The man's on form, having Sara Pascoe on every week works perfectly and Miles Jupp is an ideal foil too. Kiri Pritchard MacLean was better in the format than I anticipated too.

    I watched the whole of Blown Away on Netflix the last two nights. Basically a US version of the Pottery Throwdown or Sewing Bee (well, any of those reality elimination shows, really) but with glass blowing instead. Loved it.

    I loved it. And was really happy with the winner. Although when I googled a bit more about the show, I see there's a change.org petition to strip them of their victory :D
