Do the names Big Edie and Little Edie, or Nanook of the North, ring a bell? If they do, then have I got a TV miniseries for you. It’s a spoof of classic documentaries, and it’s delightful…

Tonight’s new episodes both feature repeat daters. David (Will Mellor), the lorry driver who had an awkward date with Mia in the opening episode, ends up dating again – an impromptu birthday date with Ellie (Montanna Thompson, pictured), who’s a lot younger than his just-turned-34. The next half hour features Erica (Gemma Chan, from Humans), who, last time we saw her, was dating a lesbian. This time, she’s dating a Callum (Greg McHugh).

David Bianculli

Founder / Editor

Behind David in the picture is the first TV owned by his father, Virgil Bianculli, a 1946 Raytheon. (The TV, not his father. His father was a 1923 Italian.) David Bianculli has been a TV critic since 1975, including a 14-year stint at the New York Daily News, and sees no reason to stop now. Currently, he's TV critic for NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and is an occasional substitute host for that show. He also teaches TV and film history at New Jersey's Rowan University, and his most recent book, 2009's Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of 'The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, has recently been purchased for film rights.  He's currently at work on another.
