GAME OF SMIRKS

No Game Of Thrones char­ac­ter en­joys the suf­fer­ing of oth­ers quite as much as Cer­sei Lan­nis­ter. So it’s a shame when she finds her­self walk­ing the streets of Kings Land­ing naked in a show of hu­mil­i­a­tion. Or is it?

PEEP SHOW

The sit­com that’s built on two char­ac­ters tak­ing it in turns to revel in each other’s mis­steps – whether it’s fail­ing at job in­ter­views and re­la­tion­ships, or hav­ing to eat bar­be­cued dog.

BIT­TER­SWEET SYM­PHONY

The hair, the out­fits, the money. Sure, Cruel In­ten­tions nailed the 90s, but it’s the cine­matic schaden­freude that makes this film a mod­ern clas­sic. The mo­ment Kathryn gets her come­up­pance and The Verve kicks in? De­li­cious.

THE SIMP­SONS

With his ubiq­ui­tous laugh that never gets old, Nel­son Muntz is a master of the art of en­joy­ing an­other’s mis­for­tune. See too: Homer’s de­ter­mined de­light in ev­ery per­ceived fail­ure of Ned Flan­ders.

FRIENDS

The con­stant rib­bing of Ross’ in­abil­ity to stay mar­ried, Chan­dler’s third nip­ple, Phoebe’s ques­tion­able mu­si­cal prow­ess. Proof if needed that even the best of friends can take plea­sure when their pals fail.
