TV and Video Review of Last year.

RIP Jimmy
We should have added this at christmas, but here, dragged into the unblinking light is a round up of some of the highlights of last year you could have seen on your tellybox.  Or in some cases monitor. 

Here with further ado is our list of stuff for 2011.

Best video by a bacon hungering dog.  Ultimate dog tease.

Though its nothing but an alsation dog dubbed with a funny voice.  Its pretty well observed and funny to boot.  Bacon.  I couldn't stop thinking about it.

Best YTP not to involve ponies.  Fesh Pince of Blair, Dikeike.

Twenty minutes of Will Smith would normally drag but its YTP and more importantly its Dikeike so you know your getting filth and a massive dose of saas.  Notable for the phrase Uncle funkle and Carleton getting a sandwich, its my pick of the year.

Best YTP involving Michael Rosen.  A Michael Rosen Christmas, CS188.

I must have seen about a hundred or so Michael Rosen videos and still can't see how something so quintessentially English got so big.  They always seemed to have his books in school when I was growing up and we always shunned them in favour for Choose Your Own adventures or playing had instead.   Michael seems resigned to his fate as a YTP source, and thanks to Imperial Lobster and Katanasoul we've had many great Michael YTPs over the years.  My favourite is however CS188's A Michael Rosen Christmas, with Michael adding 'Plams' to his christmas tree before zooming off to deliver presents to a largely ungrateful population, and not a single joke about him fiddle diddling with his sister at all.

TV Show of the year.  Life in the cold or whatever its called.

Y'know the one with David Attenborough and its in the poles.  Whatever its called it wins simply for their footage of a rock stealing Adelie Penguin (not Adele Penguin thats another type of large bird entirely).

Runner Up.  Special When Lit. 

PBS (Americas BBC4) is now available in the UK and on bangers night they showed this, reverent homage to the pinball industry.  All its oddballs and all its enthusiasts given equal time in the limelight without taking the piss at all.  We'd also like a charming Documentary involving Japanese College Baseball taken into consideration as well, I think it was called KokoYakyu.

Best Royal Wedding. Jean Michel Jarre concert Prince of Monaco Wedding.

Our own royal wedding bored me shitless, but this whole concert in tribute to the marriage of the prince of Monaco to his runaway bride, on Euronews was the bomb.

Best discussion of a national event.   DJO does the Royal wedding.

Applejuice, Kill Jordy, Jesus is a raisin.  If you don't know what or indeed who the DayJob Orchestra are, search out their Star Trek vids on Youtube.   They are Canadians that redub old videos and add their own hideous lipsynching instead.  DJO has its big old Appleparty doing the royal wedding of Tom Middleton to Prince William.

Best Advert.  Avios.

One of those search engines where you compare things. Who cares, there are floating washing machines and a cool song by Leila Arab.

Finally we come to our very special Miranda Awards for Televisual Unexcellence.  The first annual bad television awards, named in honour of the grossly unfunny sitcom of the same name.

Winner (by a country mile) The Royal Bodyguard.

We lost John Sullivan this year, so this means no Rock N Chips and no Green Green Grass of Home or Fools n Horses ever.  Which means David Jason has to eke out his pension in this misfiring mix of Mr Bean and pomp and ceremony.  I lasted 5 minutes about the same as I did for Miranda, before putting him out of his misery.

Runner up.  Towie Any season any episode.

Worst costume Drama.  Downs syndrome Abbey. (Downton Abbey)

Put the chicken stealing cat in from series 1 and then we'll talk.  We liked the Norwich union ads its a shame that they were ruined by being sandwiched between some boring show. 

Worst Internet fad.  Nyancat.

Irritating Vocaloid song added to a sprite of a half pop tart half cat trailing a rainbow behind it.  If you haven't seen it consider yourself blessed.
