    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.

    Boardwalk is phenomenal.

    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 :(
