TV, you are currently being brilliant. Look what shows are on right now:
1. Twenty Twelve
The first series of this show was great. The second series may be even better. If you like fake documentaries that are as cringeworthy as they are hilarious, then this one is for you. It's about the team behind this year's Olympic games and the best bit might be how you can almost believe it's real.
Here's a clip. (I think this one might only work in the UK. Sorry, I could only find clips on the BBC channel. Give it a try though.)
One of my favourite quotes is a bit of PR-nonsense from Head of Deliverance, Ian Fletcher, when asked if the Olympics were facing mounting problems:
Well, problems are just solutions waiting to happen, so that's all good.
Also, since watching last week's episode, I can't stop saying 'Jubilympics' in Siobhan's accent. Jubilympics. Like she says, that word's a breeder.
2. Horrible Histories
Aaaah! There's a new series! I kinda love this show to pieces. It's a children's show and I don't care!
I would show you a clip from the new series, like the fantastic Wonders of the Universe spoof, oh god oh god. But the only clips from the new series that seem to be around so far are the songs.
Go on then. Watch this boyband-style song about the RAF. I didn't know I was a fan of moustaches until now D:

I won’t be surprised if they put those songs in the next series of Horrible Histories.
Especially the bit about the helicopter dick.
And this would teach kids about making the right decisions when it comes to sex. This song is so joyful!
Wow this is making history accessible!
It’s like Sexy Brian Cox making physics accessible!
And this could be used to make sex education accessible:

Take that, Hitler!
Apparently kids like a bit of fighting and killing. They have a whole recurring sketch called ‘Stupid Deaths’ which is all about the unfortunate ways people have died in the past.
If you liked the RAF song, you might also like this spoof of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ Empire State of Mind.
That RAF song is amazing… you know I love a good dance routine!!!
Can’t believe it is for kids though. Some of those lyrics are a bit dark!
