Wow! Look at restored The Professionals titles



Netwerk is releasing beloved blokey TV drama The Professionals as Blu-Rays soon, lovingly restored from the original film materials. As you'll see from the clip above, the results are amazing. Will somebody please do the same for Inspector Morse?

Endeavour Series 2: first look trailer




Finally, a first look at the new series of Endeavour which is coming soon on ITV [I'd be very surprised if it wasn't on-air before Easter]. Originally a one-off prequel made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Inspector Morse on TV, Endeavour has evolved into a cracking detective drama in its own right. The first series got swamped by Broadchurch-mania last year, hopefully the second series will get the audience it deserves. Whispers from a sneak preview held last week are glowing...

UPDATE: Series 2 of Endeavour will apparently start Sunday March 30th on ITV1.

Big sad clown Puddles sings 'Team' by Lorde



Enormous, sad clown Puddles Pity Party and the ensemble Postmodern Jukebox had a big, fat Youtube hit with their version of 'Royals' by Lorde. Now they have reunited to interpret another Lorde hit single, 'Team'. My favourite bit this time is the saxophone.

'Tennis Court' is crying out for the Puddles & Postmodern treatment!
