Nostalgia

Tonight I watched Frost and Pegg’s Perfect Night In on Channel 4, featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s stilted and under-rehearsed links between a random assemblage of clips from their childhood–but OMG what clips. At times it seemed that Simon Pegg and I shared exactly the same childhood. Monkey, The Incredible Hulk, Children of the Stones (I only saw one episode of that but it screwed me up for life), Box of Delights, Doctor Who, Blake’s Seven, Animal Magic… I now feel old and nostalgic. The links were quite endearing too despite their awkwardness but I couldn’t help but wish for a bit more of an in-depth geek-out about the contents.
