  1. Love Hard Quiz, Tom makes the show.
    Both my husband and I have applied for the show ages ago, but still haven’t heard anything unfortunately.

  2. ‘Mad As Hell”s skewering of the grandiose Grand Designs was brilliant-saw the following ‘Tomorrow Tonight’ show and was very unimpressed-silly attempts at humor that fell flat and no real discussion of the actual serious issues-not a patch on the old ‘Hypotheticals’
