    Andrew Sachs dies at age 86 – R.I.P. Manuel from ‘Fawlty Towers’

    As the news broke early Thursday evening that Andrew Sachs had passed away at the age of 86 on November 23, I am at this moment officially done with 2016. Diagnosed with vascular dementia four years ago, Andrew was, by far, best known for his spot on portrayal of Manuel, the constantly confused waiter from Barcelona with a limited grasp of the English language and customs.

    Harry Enfield in ‘Who Does One Think One Is?’ is priceless

    Ordinarily, I’m not a big fan of sketch comedy shows as most episodes are more often than not like a roller coaster with up and down sketches. Not a bad thing but more my opinion as I realize not every sketch, whether it be from Saturday Night Live, Little Britain or even Monty Python’s Flying Circus, can knock it […]

    Step aside Parkers and Griswolds, it’s a Brockman family Christmas this year on BBC 1

    The Parkers were able to survive the holiday season despite Ralphie getting his ‘perfect Christmas wish’ of a Red Ryder BB gun. The Griswolds’ hopes of having a ‘good old-fashioned family Christmas’ would not be dashed despite having to deal with cousin Eddie and family. Ever wondered if and/or how the Brockman family would survive Christmas? Well, […]

    Valco comes out on top in Top Gear challenge as ‘Trollied’ returns

    Normally, when the guys from Top Gear were issued a challenge, something gets destroyed. Series 21 of the long-running motoring show was no exception. In episode one from 2014, former series hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May drove their 1980’s hatchbacks around a specially designed course in the aisles of a supermarket, to see who […]

    ‘W1A’ set to begin filming on 3rd series

    Following the 2012 Olympics in London, Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) was a man without a purpose. As Head of Deliverance of the Olympic Deliverance Commission in Twenty Twelve, Fletcher’s herculean task was to organize the 2012 London Summer Olympics in the face of massive logistical difficulties, production errors, infrastructure problems and troublesome contributors. It was not long after […]

    Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch

    It’s official. There is nothing Benedict Cumberbatch cannot do. After seeing the star of Sherlock and Doctor Strange this past week on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I am convinced that the party word game, Mad Libs, was invented in 1953 by Leonard Stern and Roger Price with Benedict Cumberbatch in mind. Days ahead of his Saturday Night Live hosting gig last night, the Sherlock star […]

    Happy Halloween from The League of Gentlemen’s Psychoville

    I think I’ve decided that only thing that could rival the fanboy love and appreciation for Sherlock Holmes by the mind palaces of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss is the love of film and all things Hitchcock-ian by League of Gentlemen alumni, Steve Pemberton and Reese Shearsmith. Case in point. Following the greatness of The […]
