At the minute I’m loving Veep. Admittedly, I’m biased because Chris Addison, who directed quite a lot of it, is a mate of mine, but I’m just so thoroughly enjoying it. Obviously it’s really funny, but it’s also so smart. It sneaks in big ideas behind fantastic one-liners.
The character development is really interesting because they all have their own relationships — plus
the jokes are brilliant.
The great thing about music is that it’s always alive. That’s why a song that reminds you of someone who’s not in your life any more is so powerful. The first album I bought was Leisure by Blur, when I was 12 — it will always be special
for that reason.
