Dinner time is always witching hour in this spooky cooking competition, Ghasterchef puts the devil back into devilled eggs. Dead celebrity ghosts compete to win the title of Britain’s best celebrity amateur ghost chef. Greg and John judge via Ouija board and special ghost detecting cameras allow the viewers at home to see even the most ethereal of ghosts. Ronnie Corbett is a poltergeist who covers every dish with powdered custard, Mrs Beeton fills bowls with deliciously flavoured blood, George Best makes dish after dish of immaculate food which tastes beautiful for a second before turning into ash in your mouth. Watch as the hosts slowly lose their grasp on reality, everyone is a sinner but only one person can be a winner in Ghasterchef. Cooking doesn’t get scarier than this.

Mary Berry and Donald Trump present this US reboot of the Great British Bake off, Berry actually just calls Trump Paul for the whole series, seemingly not being able to tell the difference. Billed as the most patriotic cookery programme ever each episode requires the contestants to make cakes inspired by America. Showstoppers include walls to keep out the Mexicans out, guns, and of course mass shootings. The beauty of the show is that the producers have purposefully cast incredibly inept bakers as competitors so every melted chocolate flag, every burnt mount rushmore loaf, every Whitehouse meringue in flames appears as a bitter attack on Trump’s glowing visage.


Internationalist Rescue

21 Jul

The Thunderbirds crew have had a dramatic ideological transformation. A rescue attempt on board a high speed jet train results in them blindly sacrificing the lives of hundreds of workers as they lift the passenger carriages from the track but leave the front carriage, complete with engineer and driver, to career into a busy industrial estate that surrounds the train sidings that they have successfully diverted the train into. Afterwards, celebrating a successful rescue John Tracy, who watched the whole thing from Thunderbird 5 gives a rousing and chastising speech to the rest of the team, the scales fall from the Tracys’ eyes and they finally see the techno-fascist world in which they live. Lady Penelope immediately resigns – a staunch capitalist of course – Parker however takes on a more central role in the now horizontally organised Internationalist Rescue.  As a consequence of this dramatic turn around the Thunderbirds re-focus their efforts on supporting labour disputes throughout the world, and the series follows their revolutionary efforts.

In a time of budget cuts, even the pittance on which the BBC’s flagship astronomy programme is made begins to look vulnerable.  The solution then is just to film Professor Chris Lintott in his back garden at night, squinting through a telescope.  No crew, no graphics, no fuss.
