1When I was growing up I used to love dramas like Columbo (1971), Bergerac (1981) and The Rockford Files (1974), that never took themselves too seriously, even though they were dealing with quite serious things. And I think that that's something that's good to have in the schedules, it's good to keep people entertained whilst people are being bumped off.
2I always cry when I watch Terms of Endearment (1983). I've seen it loads of times and it never fails to tear me up.
3Traffic (2000) was critically acclaimed, but I couldn't get on with it. It was a combination of the pacing and Catherine Zeta-Jones's odd Welsh/American accent. So I left and went down the pub.
4I can't stand Jeremy Kyle. The whole set-up is an utter disgrace. It's playing-by-numbers TV for the underclass and I can't abide it.
