PEARS BE WITH YOU

“May your pear juice be sweet.”

When two pear watch guards (Simon Day and Javone “Empty Orchestra” Prince) are inexplicably fired the day before Munty’s highly anticipated Pear Fair, a baffled Brian (James Buckley) jumps at the opportunity to apply for the job of guarding the sacred albino pears in the walled orchard. With his wages, he plans to journey to the City of a Thousand Towers in time for the Super Solstice, hoping to take advantage of the thin wall between worlds and return to his rightful dimension.

RICH TASTES

Halfway through this second series and stranded twenty-first century everyman Brian Weaver (James Charlie Countryman Buckley) is becoming bored with his limited circle of less-than-exceptional companions and his lacklustre new existence in the fantastical medieval province. Even news of Herman’s (Louis Emerick) upcoming anniversary party celebrating 15 years of “proper old school taverny” at The Jug and Other Jug can’t convince Brian to stay away from Munty’s newly-opened trendy bar.

FANTARAMA

“I can categorically state that nothing of note will happen today…”

If delivery boy Philip J. Fry was transported to Middle Earth instead of the year 3000, Matt Groening’s Futurama could easily have been an animated prelude to Zapped, a new Dave-commissioned fish out of water sitcom which – like the digital channel’s other genre-quashing weekly chucklethon Red Dwarf XI – is available to stream on UKTV Play a week ahead of broadcast.

RENÉE-ATRIC MOTHER

Twelve years, many a failed relationship and a considerable number of shedded pounds after her last big screen foray and everyone’s favourite everygirl singleton is back – and everything is v. much as it was after Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, even if her friends are all now settled down with young families and her famous diary is now being typed on an iPad.
