The Apprentice, 9pm tonight (6 October)

Filmed a year ago and delayed from the spring election period because Siralan was Labour's enterprise tsar.

Watch obnoxious sociopaths crash and burn.  I love it.

OMG they're even more horrible than usual.  The boys' project manager is a total caricature.

Highly entertaining, although Dan seemed far more down to earth on 'You're Fired!'.

You've made the mistake of assuming that Charlotte has any tolerance of them in the first place.   :demon:

I know.

But I'd had a nice day yesterday and my beautiful cohab had just cooked me eggy leeks on toast.  I was in a jovial mood  :)

That Churchillian speech by Raleigh (sp) was marvellous, he really sounded like William Hague. Lor' Sugars face said it all.

I wish I had your patience.

The people who applied for the first show didn’t initially know they were applying to be on a TV show which reduced the freak factor by a factor of N to the power of Christopher Biggins.

I distantly knew one of the contestants in the first season (the eventual winner, Tim Campbell) and he told me about the advert in a paper he replied to, which was one offering a “Life changing adventure” which when he mentioned it I remembered having seen myself some months before.

I did like the first series, possibly helped by having a small stake in it through knowing Tim but find it increasingly bizarre as the series carry on - I can’t stand watching the tasks anymore but I do like the boardroom bit for the comedy and theatre (especially as Surallan the midget is sitting on a box bigger chair to make him look taller than his henchmoles).

Raleigh (was he named after the bike?) apparently comes from Swindon.  I bet he got beaten up a lot when he was at school.

I love those little vignettes they have of the dorks boasting about their brilliance.  The crew must just piss themselves afterwards.  And I always wonder: if you're so brilliant/succesful/gifted, why are you interested in a £100k job on a Brentwood industrial estate?

I don't bother watching the tasks - I just come in for the big bunfight at the end.

Lordsugar (TMFKA Siralan) is usually pretty accurate at firing the no-hopers - last night being a perfect example - until the last five or six contestants, when it all goes hopelessly awry. 

He always picks the wrong one from the final pair.

I dislike Paloma intensely. She does think she is superior to everyone else. I think that Stella is currently the best on the show.

Aye, 984 rolls short. Good job Paloma didn't get her way or they would have been a couple of thousand short :o. Not that it would have made any difference.

Even better was the part when the gobby one with glasses quoted £1.80-something for a bread roll. Was it gold-plated?
