Lurgy

Ugh. I'm having real problems throwing this lurgy off. I thought I'd got better, but I'm feeling pretty terrible today.

Peep Show

After much encouragement from lots of people I know, and bearing in mind I've liked what Mitchell and Webb I've seen, I finally got around to renting the first season of Peep Show.

And I can't stand it.

It's not that I think it's bad, it's just that it's exactly the kind of "embarrassment comedy" that makes me cringe in sympathy for the characters, and has me reaching to turn down the volume or fast forward through much of it, all whilst trying to stuff my fist in my mouth. It is, for me, literally unwatchable.

Is there something wrong with me, I wonder?

Oh well. At least I know I can't cope with it now.
