Watching: Farscape. A good show taken on its own terms, with a nice line in pushing what it can get away with on account of being niche sci-fi no-one who wasn't a fan cared much about at the time. The 'who can take more hallucinogenic mushrooms and still walk' competition was still funny, mind. Muppet Christmas Carol. A great take on an already classic tale, it's eerily harrowing to see the image of Kermit and Miss (in this case Mrs) Piggy as grieving parents, but not half as harrowing as Michael Caine's singing.
