TV Review: Urban Myths – Johnny Cash And The Ostrich, Sky Arts

Yes siree, that is Frank Skinner playing country legend Johnny Cash hiding behind a snowman while trying to set a trap for an ostrich in his back garden. The latest one-off film in this entertaining series of true-ish stories finds Johnny Cash holed up in Nottingham motel daubing angry messages on the walls in hot chocolate. A sort of dirty protest, Cadbury's style.

Review: Frank Skinner On Demand With..., BBC iPlayer

I wasn’t sure whether to review this series. Judging by the first episode Frank Skinner’s latest BBC online show is basically 20 minutes-worth of plugs for other BBC online shows with a few gags lobbed in. Each week Skinner is joined by a special guest from the comedy world and they conduct their chin-wag in a place where the guest watches online programmes.
