"Rosie and Jim, Rosie and Jim,
Chugging along on the old Ragdoll..."

Mark and Martyn settle down to watch the Annabelle/The Conjuring prequel Rosie and Jim, about two sort-of-alive dolls who probably have some kind of murderous intent. Because they always do.

Happy Easter Wheelers! Let's celebrate getting fat eating Easter chocolate by watching a fat kid and his friends nearly kill an old man. This is the plot of the Fat Albert Easter Special for some reason.

"Next time you're at the checkout and you hear the beep,
think of the fun you could be having on Supermarket Sweep!"

To be clear, this show's definition of fun is basically picking up novelty inflatables and solving riddles whilst doing someone else's shopping. Fun.

What a time of mixed messages the 80s and 90s were. On the one hand we had Charlie the cat warning us about strange men promising puppies, and on the other hand we were presented with programmes like Watt On Earth, where a creepy grown man tries to befriend a young boy and keep their relationship a secret
and we as the audience were supposed to think that was ok.

Well it's not ok. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they have done!

No wait, that's the Borg. Still, Watt On Earth deserves to be destroyed in a fire.
