Back To Life

Rumours abound that the old 90s TV show This Life is about to be resurrected for a Christmas Special "Ten Years On" episode - oh please, let it be so!

Set in a flatshare in London, it was the handy-cam, British version of Friends, which means bed-heads in the morning and normal teeth. The cast looked like us, listened to Portishead like we did, drank Thresher's special offer Chardonnay like we did and, importantly, didn't group hug. They did have the back-up of some witty scriptwriters, though.

The cast:
Anna, a leggy, mouthy, do-I-care Scot, who fancied...
Miles, pre-Colin Firth posterboy for posh, who possibly fancied her back.
Milly, uptight and prone to baths, mysteriously attached to...
Egg, a sweet football & lager type of lad.

Are there other defunct TV shows out there that should be brought back to the screen? Don't tell me that you're happy with "Lost" - the adventures of Buzz Lightyear on a desert island surely can't keep us entertained? And "Desperate Housewives" is no replacement for Sex and the City - aren't we tiring of Mary Alice, a woman who manages to be dead and annoying at the same time?

I want This Life to invade American basic cable. Those desperate housewives scare the shit out of me!

Yup, they are probably dangerous. I think Bree is communicating with the aliens via her satellite dish forehead - or maybe that's just the Monday blues making me a bit venomous?
