Kim pulls out of the darkest depths of her brain a TV show for 80's kids tv that even the internet barely remembers. Sylvester McCoy played host to this bizarre "Choose your own adventure" style program who's only sin may have been it was years ahead of it's time. What's Your Story? The second episode can be watched on YouTube, but don't get too into it as this is all there is folks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxjMN5i2hCw&t=10s
Danni and Kim talk rubbish for about 10 minutes, then finally get to the point! Murder Most Horrid, one of the forgotten gems of the 90's and possibly Dawn French's best show. Just in time for Halloween. PS Talking of Halloween, join us for the live Ghostwatch along from 8:30 on YouTube! Search Oblong Babysitter to find us and join in the fun
Kim has watched all of the X-Files. She also watched the show when it was out. Danni did not. Can Kim convince Danni that The X-Files is worth watching? Kim gave her sister a list of the best, and a couple of the worst (for balance) episodes to see if the is some great telly to be mined. I WANT TO BELIEVE!
This week Danni and Kim switch things around as Danni talks about Programs for Schools. We talk Look and Read, Through the Dragon's Eye and Near and Far to name a few. What did you watch at school? And did it fill you with joy when a lesson would be replaced by the telly?
EXTRA OBLONG!!! Danni and Kim finished watching the second season of The Handmaids Tale, Hulu's sci-fi future drama. What did they think? Listen and find out. Also find out that Kim can't remember stuff she watched a week ago.
This week Danni and Kim talk about the BBC Christmas drama The Stone Tape which was an influence on Ghostwatch and Beasts a 6 part ITV drama where normal people are haunted by Beasts, including one episode when a nightclub owner is bothered by the ghost of a dolphin. No really.
