    Welcome to the No Angels guide at TV.com Every day the girls face life, death and lunacy on the wards of St. Margaret's; every night they let off steam, with a dangerous appetite for uncomplicated sex and unruly misbehaviour. Anji is set on an arranged marriage and Beth is determined to settle down with a rich consultant. In the meantime, however, they're both happy to practice their bedside manners… For single mum Lia, juggling work and home can prove tricky. And acting sister Kate soon finds out that juggling work and love is even trickier... Still, they can always rely on each other. And if the drugs don't work, it's probably because the junior doctor's taken them… The show has now ended with all the girls ending up in very different places from where they started...moreless

    Channel 4
    This is a British reality contest show with a twist. Instead of trying to eliminate others, the contestants try to get people to choose to hang out with them on 'their island'. Ten people are split between two islands. One group is called Tigers, the others Sharks. Each week, a new contestant arrives and spends 3 days with the Tigers, and then 3 days with the Sharks. On the seventh day, the groups all get together and have a 'beach party' during which the new arrival must decide who they want to stay with for the remainder of the show. Whichever island has more people at the end of 5 months wins £100,000. For the 2009 season, only one person will walk away with a £70,000 prize fund.moreless

    Welcome to the Supernanny (UK) guide at TV.com. This guide will cover the UK (original) airing and format of the programme. Following the success of the hit first series in the UK and a resulting series in America, Supernanny is back! No-nonsense nanny Jo Frost returns with her magic for series two, with four new episodes to be followed by eight more later in the year, putting modern families, parenting and childcare back under the microscope. Each week, Supernanny promises to transform the lives of a different family and put a stop to the unruly bad behaviour of children who are driving their parents insane. Having tackled tantrum-prone toddlers in series one, this time Jo takes on a range of problem children from terror tweens to troublesome teenagers, and from destructive daughters to children who won't eat, sleep or go to school. In her frank and upfront style, Jo forces each family to confront the real issues behind the bad behaviour. Then, with her recipe of strict discipline and tried-and-tested techniques, she sets about teaching the parents how to turn their kids around; but can she meet these tough new challenges with each family in just three weeks?moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 2000)
    Like Kay's The Services before it, the show proceeds as a spoof documentary and captures six different yet similar slices of life in Bolton, with the now-familiar cast of Phoenix Nights playing multiple roles. Each episodes focuses on a different set of hilarious characters, including Brian Potter and the staff of the ill-fated Neptune club. The back story of Potter and the others is told here for the first time. If more restricted than Phoenix Nights, That Peter Kay Thing is still winningly hilarious and, unlike other BBC comedies which have since copied its format, extends a deep generosity to the people it lays bare on the screen.moreless

    Follow
    Channel 4
    What do you do to get a piece of crust? Tony Robinson presents some of the worst jobs ever from various historical periods in England, ranging from the dark ages through the Victorian era. Season one focuses on historical periods, while season two combines places, social status and periods of time (for example, rural, urban, maritime, etc.). From the channel 4 website: "The history we are taught usually features the lives and times of the great and the good, of the haves but not the have-nots. However, the monarchs, aristocrats and magnates could not have existed without the battalions of minions who performed the tasks that were beneath their masters and mistresses."

    Gamesmaster

    Gamesmaster

    Follow
    Channel 4 (ended 1998)
    GamesMaster was more of a games show than a game show involving two or three challenges per show. These challenges saw people come on the programme and playing a game (usually arcade or console). It was the first video games programme. One challenge per show involved a celebrity taking part and these challenges involved commentary by a non-entity from the video games press e.g. Dave "Games Animal" Perry.

    Anyone who completed a challenge or got a better score than his or her opponent was presented with a Golden GamesMaster Joystick.

    The series was presented by Scottish stand up comedian Dominik Diamond (who now is currently a reporter for the newspaper The Daily Star). However, Dexter Fletcher presented Series 3. (Dominik left the series because of its two-year sponsorship deal with McDonalds, but eventually returned in Series 4.)

    The show also feature reviews of the latest games. Most episodes during the first four series saw kids come on the show and ask the Games Master: an animated floating head of astronomer Patrick Moore for tips and cheats on console games. The Games Master also introduced each challenge.

    Series Settings

    Each series had a different setting. These were:

    Series 1 (early 1992) – Church Series 2 (1992/3) – Oil rig Series 3 (1993/4) – Prison Series 4 (1994/5) – Hell Series 5 (1995/6) – Heaven Series 6 (1996/7) – Atlantis Series 7 (1997/8) – Desert island

    Interesting Facts

    Each series also featured a different servant who brought people in, out, brought the GamesMaster Golden Joystick etc. These were:

    Series 1 – Monk Series 2 – Diver Series 3 – Caretaker Series 4 – Goblins Series 5 – Angels Series 6 – Mermaids Series 7 – Girl Fridays

    A GamesMaster computer magazine was launched. It is still published today despite the fact that the series is no longer on air anymore.moreless

    Bo' Selecta!

    Bo' Selecta!

    Follow
    Channel 4 (ended 2009)
    Leigh Francis under the guise of Avid Merrion introduces us to a sketch show not quite like any other. Bo' Selecta! came from a phrase Craig David used in a song meaning Good DJ. Using a set of rubber face masks and costuming, Leigh and his team create celebrities from the past and present either living out the lifestyle of the rich and the famous or living secret lives, as common as the rest of us. The show began on September 6th 2002, and ran for six episodes, with an additional two episodes featuring clips from the first series and new sketches in February of the the following year. Throughout the series the focus was on Avid's obsession with celebrities and most of the action took place in his flat. It was here we were introduced to some familiar characters who stuck through all three series of the show. Ozzey (Ozzey Rezat) was Avid's landlord and next door neighbour, who spent his days creating shirts featuring celebrity photos for Avid. In Avid's toilet was Da Craig (Big Brother winner Craig Phillips) who Avid kept hostage in his bathroom. He also kept his dead mother in his closet. As well as celebrity impersonations, Avid was regularily joined by stars making guest appearances, mainly up a tree in Hamstead Heath were Leigh in a small Bear suit, became a easily aroused character named The Bear. The second series ran for eight episodes from June 6th 2003 through to July 25th. The series pretty much followed the same premise as the first, more cameos were made and new characters introduced. After this series followed the first chart single to be realised by Avid along with many actual celebrities and his rubber faced creations a single named 'Proper Crimbo' was released in the UK, on the CD single a spoof of Michael Jacksons 'Thriller' was also released. A promo was shown of both videos and there was also a behind-the-scenes show made. Also a Christmas special entitled 'Ho-Ho-Ho Selecta!' was shown. The third series was completely different, airing this time for nine episodes from June 18th 2004, Avid had being given his own talk show. A now camped up, gay Ozzey was Avid's make-up artist. The Bear returned around the studio and Craig had being given his own DIY show in the studio next door. There was also the introduction of some new characters which have appeared in spin-offs after the series ended including Cocknose the producer, (Bo' In The USA!) Keith Lemon the director (A Bear's Tail, Bo' In The USA! and Keith Lemon's Very Brilliant World Tour) and movie critic Corey Haim (Bo' In The USA!). Avid released another Christmas single, aided by the real Patsy Kensit and Davina McCall, the trio re-released 'I Got You Babe', the B-Side to which was Leigh's Craig David's 'Sodapop'. A Promo was shown again and a more in-depth behind-the-scenes show was also made. Since the end of the third series, Leigh has gone on with Channel 4 to create a sitcom with The Bear, entitled A Bear's Tail. Then alongside his new wife who is also his sister, he had moved to America to open a hotel with her, in a sketch show, similiar to the original series Bo' In The USA!. A new episode of the series aired on September 24th 2009, as a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. The show retold the stars life, it marked the return of Leigh Francis to the network, since his departure to ITV2.moreless
