So you're watching TV, minding your own business, when you hear the immortal line, "Tonight on Supervets!" Just another Wednesday night on the BBC. Tonight on Supervets, so far there's a horse on a treadmill and a dog being sliced open. Fascinating stuff.
Roll on the start of the new Parliamentary year, that's what I say. I can't wait for Question Time to come back on the telly - a free-for-all, with a panel of top politicians (of the very highest calibre) and a baying mob of whoever walked in off the street shouting at them, unedited and live on TV every Thursday night. And whatever happened to Jeremy Paxman? Yes, my beloved Paxman has been off TV for a while. My daily Newsnight e-mails have been coming from Gavin Esler and Kirsty Wark for weeks now, with not a single Paxman e-mail in sight.
Three minutes into Supervets, and they're doing an ultrasound scan on a pregnant dog. Fascinating stuff.
Tragedy on Supervets - Louis the dog has suffered some difficulties on the operating table. It seems he needs a shock from the defib unit because his heart has given out. Charging... clear! *BOOM*
Will Louis the dog make it through? Tune in next week to find out, apparently. Whether Louis will be undergoing doggy CPR for the entire week is left unclear. Initial reports that no-one actually gives a flying fuck are still unsubstantiated.

Well, THANK YOU for spoiling that the dog had a crisis, Lisa. Very thoughtful of you. How do I report you for Spoilers? And how will I survive the wait until we know whether he lives or dies??
And to think you'd rather watch international news and learn about the workings of the world!
