I love TMi, it's about time a decent Saturday morning kids show was back on TV, TMi reminds me in some ways of Going Live or Live & Kicking, although I am obviously way out of the BBC's target audience age range for TMi I watch it every Saturday. Sam and Mark prove time and again they are fantastic presenters (not forgetting they are great singers as well :D) and Caroline compliments them perfectly, she can match wits with them easily and the chemistry between them all comes across so well on screen. Despite it being a kids TV show it does have some great adult humour in it, some cracking innuendo's from all 3 presenters, Sam being the worst offender and you've just got to love him for it :D this alone, for me, makes the show more appealing for adults watching. I also love the fact that they can laugh at their mistakes, any fluffed lines etc just get joked about, none of the presenters take themselves seriously and that makes the show feel totally live and fun, nothing worse than a kids TV presenter who you can see get frustrated cos they fluffed a line! I would, however, happily get rid of Prank Patrol and make time for better interviews with the guests, bring back the old bad boy chair chats they had on TOTP Reloaded, they were class!!!! also live performances each week from bands would be great, the studio is small but I'm sure they could squeeze a band in there somehow!! ha ha. I find Call Yourself A Friend is becoming too over-scripted and it's obvious when they've fixed it for the kids to win, both Sam and Mark deal with younger guests brilliantly so I say let their natural banter and humour play out so it stays looking natural and not like the kids have been made to memorise silly put downs.
All in all, if you want a fantastic Saturday morning show that has a bit of everything for everyone then watch TMi, this is the first time I've watched Saturday morning TV since Live & Kicking and I'm loving it :D :D
