Review: Watching Neighbours Twice a Day by Josh Widdicombe
I was familiar with the author mostly from his work on The Last Leg (I sometimes find his comments hilarious,) and that was enough to tempt me to buy a copy of the book. Some of the programmes were immediately familiar to me, The Simpsons gets a mention toward the end and there was a brief point in my childhood where my brother and I both found Beadle's About hilarious. And of course we had our own version of Gladiators. (Same shit, different region.) On the whole, this is an entertaining read that is about television ... or at least about growing up in front of one.
