Don’t forget Tuesday’s caption competition!

Got a picture of David Tennant sitting, lying down or in some indeterminate state in between? Then leave a link to it below or email me and if it’s judged suitable and doesn’t obviously infringe copyright, it will appear in the “Sitting Tennant” gallery. Don’t forget to include your name in the filename so I don’t get mixed up about who sent it to me.

The best pic in the stash each week will appear on Tuesday and get ten points; the runners up will appear on Friday (one per person who sends one in) and get five points.

You can also enter the witty and amusing captions league table by commenting on Tuesday’s Sitting Tennant photo, the best caption getting 10 points, everyone who contributes getting five points.

Weird old title sequences: LA Heat (1996), possibly the worst TV show ever made

LA Heat, in my estimation, was possibly one of the worst TV shows ever made. Yes, worse than Angela’s Eyes and even Saving Grace. I’m not going to write epic swathes of text about why it was so bad. I’m just going to let the beyond-parody title sequence speak for itself.

If that didn’t persuade you, here’s the first episode of the second season. If your IQ drops as a result of watching it, that’s not my fault.
