Welcome back to the Friday Open Thread, where a Brit bores you to death by moaning about how shit things are now.

Yesterday it was announced that ‘the totally not a backdoor pilot’ season of old sitcom remakes was in fact a bunch of backdoor pilots, with the remake of classic prison sitcom Porridge now getting a full series. For a company that justifies its licence fee (which anyone wanting to watch live TV or BBC online has to pay) as being ‘innovative’ it sure doesn’t half remake a lot of old stuff. I’m just glad they saw reason however and chose not to commission that awful Are You Being Served? remake.

At least the week is finally over however and I get to spend the weekend playing some Rainbow Six and laughing at the abysmal Shadow Cabinet reshuffle.

So what about you lot, what plans do you have for this weekend?
