Trivia

Presenter Matthew Wright is an obsessive fan of the band Hawkwind and makes frequent references to them on the series. Some of his comments have actually been factually incorrect. On 24 November 2016, Wright claimed during a conversation with Miles Hunt that Hawkwind had a top ten album in 2016. They didn't, it actually went to number 29. He was most likely referring to another perennially unfashionable prog-rock band, Marillion, who did reach the UK top ten for the first time in many years. The bands are connected through the character of Neil from the 1980s sitcom The Young Ones (1982). See more »

Channel 5... Daytime TV?? Actually, it's quite good
26 May 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

With those credentials, you'd expect this to be diabolical but actually it's worth watching. The topics discussed are always relevant and entertaining to debate, and the audience and viewers are allowed to have a say so it isn't just Wright and some Z-list celebs talking about nonsense. Matthew Wright is a great presenter who never manages to be dull, never spends too long on a topic and keeps the panel of guests in control. There isn't much more to say besides it being an entertaining and useful look at the recent news, and certainly the best thing on during the daytime in the week. To see what it could have been like you can flip over to ITV and watch 'Loose Women' for as long as you can bear it.

Unfortunately, for the rest of the daytime Channel 5 reverts to those mind games programmes with glaring pink studios that seem to go on for hours. When they're on, you're probably better off watching the BBC with "To buy or not to buy" "Car booty", "Cash in the Attic", "Bargain Hunt", "Flog it!" "Homes under the hammer"… ENOUGH!
