Well then, what can I say about After Hours? In many respects, this six episode British sitcom defies a lot of the requirements for good telly and yet I really enjoyed it.

I’ve heard a lot of folk talking very positively about this show, even claiming it fills a Star Trek void in a way the most recent Star Treks fail to do. High praise indeed. My curiosity was piqued.

The shows I have selected have nothing in common, save the fact that they are all fictional stories for very young children and are all found on Cbeebies.

A bizarre little show, undeniably low-brow in some respects and with off-beat humour that only really managed to tickle me slightly. It took a little while to get started, but once it finally did get going, I found myself quickly starting to love it.

If you’re thinking this sounds like a bit of a kitchen sink show, you’re absolutely right. The Duffer brothers who created the show seem to have painstakingly pieced together every single last light-hearted ’80s American sci-fi/horror trope they could think of and mashed them together to create this show. But you know… it’s not nearly as bad as it sounds.

DCI Sam Tyler (John Simm) is a British police officer who gets hit by a car in 2006 and wakes up in 1973. The rest of the series catalogues his continual clashes with his new colleagues as he tries to navigate the unfamiliar world of the early ’70s and figure out how to return to the present day.

When I heard that Rowan Atkinson was going to be starring as the main character in ITV’s television adaptation of Georges Simenon’s detective novel Maigret Sets a Trap, my curiosity got the better of me.

After a little gentle coaxing from the wife and fifteen years late for the party, I decided to give Star Trek: Enterprise a second chance.

A very encouraging beginning to a show which I was anticipating with both hope and fear… It was the best offering I’ve seen from the Star Trek franchise in a long, long time.
