S26.E08: Lewis Hamilton, Elizabeth Banks, Ricky Gervais, Kylie Minogue

Recommended Posts

Quote

Together on Graham's sofa tonight: British racing star Lewis Hamilton, fresh from winning his sixth Formula One world title; Hollywood star Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect), playing Bosley in the new Charlie’s Angels movie, which she also wrote and directed; comedy superstar Ricky Gervais, starting a world tour of his new stage show SuperNature; and pop queen Kylie Minogue, who chats and performs a special version of her No.1 hit single Slow.

Graham's jokes at Prince Andrew's expense were very funny. I wish he'd been a bit more brutal, but that's not really Graham. He's more naughty than vicious, at least on his show.

Elizabeth Banks's game was as boring this time as it was the original time. 

Lewis Hamilton is always a really interesting interview. I like that he wants to open up racing and diversify it.

Does anyone else have trouble recording Graham's show? I don't know if it's BBCA or my DVR or what, but nearly half of my show was garbled, and this happens regularly. It's annoying.

I like her, and I like her laugh, but that game is lame.

Ricky Gervais literally on the edge of his seat listening to him.  That's what I love about this show.

I'm trying to think of who else can be on the casual sitter couch--Ricky Gervais and Helena Bonham-Carter need a third.

FWIW, I get it via DirecTV and it works fine.

Never had an issue with my X1 DVR. 

I thought Elizabeht was a bit interrupty in the first segment, kept cutting Ricky off, but she got better. 

Good episode. Always love when Ricky is on. Looking forward to his new special.

Elizabeth almost made me turn off the tv.  Typical Hollywood narcissistic personality.

I think Elizabeth Banks is struggling with this particular format. In both her appearances she felt slightly off to me - hard to put in words.

It must be the combination of Spectrum and my DVR. And possibly BBC-A, as this doesn't seem to happen with other recordings. Thanks, everyone.

I have SPectrum too and haven't had problems like that but mine does randomly decide I no longer get Sundance.

I always enjoy Kyle Minogue, and she didn't disappoint this time.

I usually listen to the first 30 seconds or so of every song and then tend to FF. This time was no different. But I'm rather agnostic on Kylie Minogue, despite the fact that "Can't Get You Out of My Head" was the first song I ever bought on iTunes.

Ricky Gervais has the best smile and the best laugh in all of entertainment. I don’t always appreciate his raunchier jokes, but I can watch him laugh for eternity.

His giggle always makes me laugh.

I watched the first season of After Life because of this episode, and I enjoyed it. It's nothing new in terms of tone or subject matter, really, but the last episode has some lovely payoffs.

I struggle with some recordings of Graham - it freezes and garbles and sometimes goes black.  Spectrum and DVR for me as well, and you are right in that it rarely happens for other shows.

Why do women go on talk shows wearing such short dresses that they're constantly pulling them down and always have to keep their legs crossed?

Who the hell told Lewis Hamilton that his shirt was a good idea?

I'm only a couple of years older than Kylie Minogue and I can tell you that I don't sing like a three year old.

She sucks. You have to wonder just how some of these people got recording contracts.

The record labels that have made bank on the 80 million (and counting) records she's sold probably don't have a problem with her having got a recording contract...

And the laugh is made even better when he's leaning back with his hands on his belly, and they jiggle.
