  1.  Not the funniest but reasonably interesting, to some extent.

    Posted: 

    This book is certainly not the funniest book I have ever read. It is, however, a thoughtful and, as you would expect, introspective piece of work. Lee interestingly describes the mechanics behind some of his stand-up routines. He also reveals something of his own inner workings and motivations. Overall, I would say this book is fairly entertaining but it hasn't changed my life (but, realistically, who would expect it to?).

  2.  I have nothing to declare but my genius

    Posted: 

    Forget that National Treasure nonsense for a moment. In the past, Fry has been a stealing, cheating and lying cad. This book makes for an interesting read.

  3.  Enjoy Yourself

    The Specials produced some exceptional music and here's proof. An absolute steal at this price.

  4.  *** BRIElliant! Uncool Is The New Cool ***

    Posted: 

    Making Little Britain look rather bland, The IT Crowd is nearly as good as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace (also starring Mr Ayoade) and has the irresistable silliness of Father Ted.
    This fantastic series celebrates the nerd in all his glory. Long live the geek. It is official - Uncool is the new cool.

  5.  Made In Britain!

  6.  Good comedy but not Great Comedy

    Posted: 

    LB was funny and original back in series 1. Lou and Andy are the best thing in this series followed closely by Tom Baker's daft oratories.

  7.  Shock a tad, amuse a bit then collect the awards

    Posted: 

    LB was still fairly funny in series 2 but the novelty was wearing off somewhat. Tom Baker's silly monologues still hit the spot though. And Lou and Andy are fantastic creations. This comedic style does not have the cultic gravitas of masterpieces such as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Young Ones or The IT Crowd.

  8.  Formulaic - No longer shocks or amuses.

    Shock and amuse people.
    Win awards.
    Make money.
    Repeat.

  9.  Disintegration - The Cure's most sublime album

    Posted: 

    Disintegration is atmospheric, brooding, intense, almost dark but also melodic and uplifting which make it, for me at least, more ethereal than any other Cure album.

  10.  GMD: €Too subversive, too dangerous, too damn scary.€

    This show is bizarre but brilliant. It is the stuff of legend and as such will surely survive Channel 4s apparent indifference. Starring Matt Holness (son of Blockbusters Bob Holness), Matt 'One Track Lover' Berry and the lovely and gorgeous Alice Lowe (widow of Arthur). WE WANT MORE! Please.
