Anybody been watching Space Cadets? Not many of you, judging by the ratings. If you haven't, don't. It's another show from C4 designed purely to allow people to have a laugh at “dim-witted proles” (to borrow a Charlie Brooker phrase) - as you may have guessed from the show's title. Can't they come up with anything interesting or edifying? Of course not. They still employ Jimmy Carr.
Personally, I think they all should lose if they don't know enough basic physics to understand weightlessness. “We're not going to be in orbit high enough to escape the Earth's gravitational field so you won't be weightless.”. And they bought it! Retards.
Me? I'm only watching it since a friend of my sister is one of the undercover actors. They write a blog about cats. Now that's edifying.

Despite some of my previous comments, Most Haunted has been officially declared not to be a fraud.
Well almost. Let's just have a look at that ruling a little closer:
The television watchdog ruled that the show contains “a high degree of showmanship that puts it beyond what we believe to be a generally accepted understanding of what comprises a legitimate investigation”. As such the show should be taken as produced for entertainment purposes, not to definitively inform the public of real incident of paranormal activity.
So, in other words, it's not a fraud because only a moon calf would be so dim as to believe it's anything other than cobblers from beginning to end. Completely vindicated then.

Since a ridiculously large number of people come to my blog each day to know if Threshold has been cancelled, here's the latest news available, fresh from the MediaGuardian:
“Production of Sky One's alien invasion thriller Threshold is stopping after 13 episodes, although US broadcaster CBS said it has not taken a final decision about whether to axe the show.”
So there you go. It's been cancelled. Sort of. Still, with the amount of interest I've detected from all you guys coming to my blog, I suspect the problem is one of time slot, not of fan base. Don't hold your breath for its return though.
Incidentally, the MediaGuardian piece also hints that Joey's time is nigh, which isn't too bad a thing in my opinion.
