Sorry, you should have watched this instead…

Follow-up to Don't watch that, watch this! from Chris Doidge's Blog

I made a grave error a few weeks ago by saying that Annually Retentive was the funniest comedy of the year.

I'm sorry.

For we seem to have a new contender in the form of Armando Iannucci's Time Trumpet, a series devoted to nostalgic television. The twist being that it's nostalgic about TV from 2007–2025.

Check out the preview clips here and you can see the first full episode on August 3rd on BBC Two.

P.S. The website's got a bit of a nod to internet geeks – the source code says the following:

And the tagline seems to be: "Do you remember petrol? The 2012 Olympic hoax?"

Looks good.

  1. Seen the trailers, does look like it could be pretty funny. Myself and fellow fortlings will be watching.

  2. It was pretty decent – a bit hit and miss, I thought. So far I prefer Annually Retentive. Loved the bit where Tony Blair kept seeing ghosts.
