0:00:00 - At the third stroke, the vague reference from the past will be... the British speaking clock. doot. doot. doot.

0:08:08 - It's been a newsy week, The Boys discuss the Times Square bomber, from the same school of terrorism as the Glasgow Airport comedy jihadists. Also, Bill Maher claims that Republicans are racists. Or, rather, that racists are Republicans.

0:20:35 - This Week In Stuff, the segment where you can find out what TV shows, movies and books to either love or avoid. Have you discovered "The Singing Detective" yet? Paul is hoping that you'd watch the proper one, and not the remake. He took in another episode of "Benny Goodman: King Of Swing", which mentioned something that Mark Morriss of The Bluetones was moved to acquire, after Paul's glowing review in TPASS#209. One off the Ebert list, "L'Avventura" from prospective cereal maker Michelangelo Antonioni-Os, and one from the listener recommendation list, "The Phantom Of The Paradise". Carburetors, man! That's what life is all about! The PSP's been getting some button-mashing love, via "Silent Hill: Origins". So, sshh!

0:45:10 - Another quiet week for the Netflix-killing Spike, with the proper British version of the stunning "State Of Play", and documentaries "Dear Zachary: A Letter To A Son About His Father", and laments the "pivotable" points of "The King Of Kong".

0:54:20 - Question time. A badly asked question, or just a bad question? The Boys discuss obsessions, their own and those of the commentariat. Obsessions discussed are time, instruction manuals, shortwave radio, football and how many Christmasses Paul has left.
