A Velvet Weekend

What with Halloween being on the most awkward day of the week, we at TVO have been wondering what to do with ourselves this coming spooky weekend and have found there to be a plethora of Booshdom goodies on throughout.

Of course, in true Boosh form, this schedule is more suitable for our vampire/insomniac readers but here is our TV Guide of all that’s in store this coming Saturday and Sunday.

Tonight you can find the lovely Paul King‘s Bunny & The Bull being repeated tonight at 00.10 (a good way to gear you up for Ed Hogg’s performance in Anonymous). We’re sure Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt feel more than comfortable in this air-time slot.
If you still haven’t seen this film, it is well worth staying up for and you can read our review of it right here. If this is too far past your bedtime then you can of course grab it in our shop.

On Sunday and Monday mornings, BBC3 is having a Mongrels marathon from 01.50 until 03.50! Remember to set that coffee machine early for some gloriously  rude, potty-mouthed fun! The entire first series will be aired and then the first episode will be repeated again in a loop at 03.50. We can’t say why, but we can’t complain.

In true Halloween form it wouldn’t be the perfect October weekend without Dead Set – Charlie Brooker’s (writer of Nathan Barley) reality tv zombie-spoof. Also Starring Kevin Eldon and with as much blood and killings as you could wish for. This starts at 23.40 on E4, Sunday night.

Lastly, this wouldn’t be our kind of TV Guide if we didn’t have to give you a good old ultimatum. Over on More 4 they are offering you a Graham Lineham package where from 23.40 you can see Father Ted, IT Crowd, then Black Books back-to-back.

It’s a tricky choice but whichever decision you choose to make you can always find any of these in our Amazon shop and all of Lineham’s shows are available to watch on 4OD whenever you want.

Then, on Halloween night Never Mind The Buzzcocks returns! We’re overly excited by this episode especially as Paul Foot is making his glorious return to the show! This starts at 10pm Monday evening and as usual, we will be chattering away to all of you lovely lot for our TVO Tweet View (#NMTB) which will be kicking off as soon as the show starts so do follow us and join in the fun!

Take a look at a clip below and if you have plans, naturally, you can catch up with this episode for 7 days after it airs on BBC iPlayer.

Enjoy the weekend with our Oniony Guide and let us know what your plans are!
