Is anyone watching the Jewellery bake off* on BBC? It's quite interesting.

* I know it's not really called that.

I watched it this morning when I couldn't sleep.

They are very talented! It's funny that we often think of jewellery as being so delicate, yet there they are, burning and twisting and rasping and pulling. It's really fascinating.

I loved the stretchy thing they use to make chains.

I watched it last night on the rerun, it took me back to the jewellery course I did a couple of years ago.

I want to watch the jewellery one, that sounds good.

We’ve started watching I Can See Your Voice on Mr S’s suggestion as the kids loved The Masked Singer so much and also because we vaguely know someone on it :)). It’s AWFUL! And so contrived! But also weirdly entertaining, I can’t wait to see the rest.

It’s so drawn out and terrible, but somehow a background watchable.

Series 6 of Superstore is on ITV and it's set in covid real time. Pretty cool as it's one of the very few (if not the only) fictional programme I've seen that is.

I keep missing this and can't access bbc iplayer.

I'm watching Makeup: A glamorous History which is on directly after it. It's covers make up through the ages. It's very interesting.

Motherland series 3 starts on Monday at 9pm, I’m guessing on BBC2. Series 1 and 2 on the iPlayer. Love Anna Maxwell Martin but the real star is Diane Morgan.
As he told her that he loved her she gazed into his eyes, wondering, as she noted the infestation of eyelash mites, the tiny deodicids burrowing into his follicles to eat the greasy sebum therein, each female laying up to 25 eggs in a single follicle, causing inflammation, whether the eyes are truly the windows of the soul; and, if so, his soul needed regrouting.

Grey’s Series 17 and its spin-off fire station series, Station 19, are all about the rona, Marth. It’s actually almost refreshing to see it being used intrinsically as part of the plot, rather than having to suspend your awareness of the circumstances surrounding its production.

That Mare Of Easttown thing is good so far. Kate Winslet is great in it. As with anything like this, it can all go to shit in the last episode, mind you.

We've just started series 3 of Keeping Faith. I really enjoy it! All three series are on iPlayer.

I loved that, Azu - I binge watched series 1&2 and was really pleased to see the third .
