  1. Curses you John! You can?t ask if we want to see the most worst product placement ever (full of BLOODY SOUP) then mention that, oh, by the way, major spoiler ahead which will leave you shocked to the core (so better to ignore this bit if you haven?t yet seen the episode). You even made it extra dramatic with your elongated BLOOOOOOOD references. It?s like waving candy in front of a small child in a safety seat and not expecting them to gnaw through their restraints.

  2. Agree with John that Gavin & Stacey is horrible, totally unwatchable dreck.

  3. The original Stig was “Black Stig” who was a bloke called Perry McCarthy Ex F1 driver who was killed off by Top Gear (by tossing him off an aircraft carrier) after his identity was reviled. Ben Collins revile is a little different as it was due to Hammond's accident that his name came up, so its not known if the same fate awaits White Stig. Rumour is Pink or Red Stig.

  4. one cant help but wonder if the mere mention of john updike had anything to do with his passing…he wont be collecting any royalties now….

  5. They referred to the last Stig in last week's episode – and how he was tossed off an aircraft carrier – but how was black Stig's identity revealed?

    And wasn't (white) Stig's African cousin – who popped up in one of the challenges in Africa – “Black Stig”?

  6. Oh yes, Josh's Boxcutters kiss-of-death strikes again

    HEY! What's with the diss of Whodunnit!? Granted, I'm not a fan of exclamation marks in titles, but it was great family entertainment – I seem to recall that it screened on ABC at 7.30pm Sunday. Some of the plots were quite convoluted.

  8. What are the chances of us even mentioning John Updike in a show about television? This is getting sooooo creepy.

  9. We've had somebody mention problems with the commenting system. Please send us an email if this is happening to you.

  10. Update: apparently it's only happening wit Facebook Connect comments. We're looking into it now.

  11. I tried to say that too, but was having problems logging in – really, what is the likelihood of a television podcast ever mentioning John Updike? Only if they want to kill him, apparently. Josh has been trying to excuse himself, claiming that it was simply because Updike was elderly and had cancer, but I think we all know what's really going on here.

  12. I did warn you! It was a special treat for those of us who has already watched the Bleakest. Episode. Ever. If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding.
    How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
