Derek is genuinely life-affirming. How many sitcoms capture the quiet, gradual, dignified, terrifying, wistful, relief-flecked prospect of death? Of recent comedies, only Jo Brand's masterful Getting On comes close.
Never Mind the Buzzcocks has been going for years. One of the features that has stayed the same is its 'Identity Parade'. Here they invite a supposedly failed, washed up pop star from yesteryear to humiliate themselves in a bid to be recognised by the panel. Nobody comes out of it with any dignity.

After all, when a show lets you down, there's always shopping. But launch a second-screen app with more information about the show I've just abandoned? That doesn't sound right, does it? But to do what? Facebook? Email? Amazon?
DTLA is set in downtown L.A. and chronicles the friendships and sex lives of eight friends and the people who populate their lives. This week I caught up with creator/director Larry Kennar, co-producer and actor Darryl Stephens, and cast members Danny Roberts and Matthew S. Herrick.
