The Week In View...IV

Manlab (BBC 2, Sunday 31st October): Absolutely hilarious. James May demonstrates handy, useful everyday man tasks such as how to make a fashionable concrete kitchen unit, disable and make safe a World War Two bomb, polish boots to a proper shine, seranade your girlfriend with a lute and 17th century verse, build a transport network through your house (aka a train set) and make a mobile, radio controlled picnic table. The highlight of the show saw Captain Slow taking us on a step by step guide on how to make the perfect fish finger sandwich. This program is essential viewing for all real men. Brilliant! 

X-Factor (ITV, Sunday 31st October): Oh no, it's yet another week with Wagner! Unbelievably this dreadful man didn't get voted off. I blame Louis Walsh who was responsible for putting this act through to the final in the first place. So Bel Amie are out but I'm fast losing interest.

Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, Sunday 31st October): Oh no, it's yet another week with the dreadful Anne Widdicombe! etc, etc, etc.

The Apprentice (BBC1, Wednesday 27th October): Thank goodness Melissa has now gone. She was found wanting this week and her pitching was amateurish to say the least. She just didn't know when to stop talking and would not listen to her customers or learn when to take no for an answer and move on. This lady also made up her own words on the hoof from 'Mel's Dictionary of English' that bore no resemblance at all to the standard Oxford dictionary that we all know and love. Mel was also a very bad loser, she showed no grace or dignity in defeat and badly let herself down by the way she behaved shortly after getting the finger from Lord Sugar along with the immortal words "You're fired". Quite right too. Who's next? My money is on Paloma, we shall see.
