Well, who would have thought it? Our laziest columnist, Jamie, has finally been moved from his torpor to be knowledgeable, opinionated, moralistic and right. The rules are the same. He has 50 words – no more, no less – to tell us what's on his mind.
» JAMIE SAYS: Dead women talking, conjoined twins... all the freaks are out. Carnivàle is here. It is an amazing US tv series which started on the FX channel last week. Watch it. Or face my eternal disapproval – yes even you people with peasanttv™. Watch Carnivàle not the Xfactor or maybe watch both.
