Peep Show series 7 is on it’s way WOOOOO!

5 11 2010

Well the wait is nearly over; on November 26th Channel 4 will be showing the first episode of the new series of Peep Show, it’s 7th season thus far.

As you might have guessed I am rather excited about this, I love Peep Show, I have been hooked ever since I first saw it.

I could go on and on with a long list of things that I enjoy about it but a far more qualified man than I sums it up perfectly –

Ricky Gervais, the main man himself, has been quoted as saying that “the last thing I got genuinely excited about on British TV was Peep Show, which I      thought was the best sitcom since Father Ted” and that it is”the best show on television today”

I can’t wait to see how things work out with Mark being a “dad” now especially as he is now relegated to the depths of waiting tables…



Martin Freeman to play Bilbo Baggins

1 11 2010

I am  a little behind the times on this as I have been up the walls recently and haven’t been looking at the entertainment news as much as I normally would so

But there it was in black and white Martin Freeman (no relation to Morgan) of The Office fame is to play Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming Hoobbit movie!!!.

Personally I think that he will be perfect for the role, not only is he English and I have always visualised Hobbits as being essentially fat little Englishmen, but he looks exactly like a Hobbit!

This is going to be a really big step in the right direction for Freeman, who has come a long, long way from his days as Tim in The Office or as John; the actor who is filming a sex scene with the oh so appealing Joanna Page of Gavin and Stacey fame in Love Actually.

I am now even more excited about these films then I was previously and that was fairly excited let me tell you! As much as I love the Lord of the Rings and have read it far more times then I should probably admit to the Hobbit has always held a special place in my heart.

I had always enjoyed reading, even as a small child but it was Tolkien’s story about a Hobbit that lived in a hole in the ground and the adventures that he had that really started my life long love of fantasy books.
