Plato's retreat bringing all the tunes and segments you can handle.

But wait, theres more!
Pearl joins us for the Cheese Wheel of Fortune in which she struggles mightily with a Dutch cheese, and Fin from 16 Tun brings us the Flagon Wagon...which ends in an argument when Sam proposes we have a "Triple Brown Float" next week: Double Brown™ poured over chocolate icecream.

To prevent the Emmerdale review from becoming Kim Tate reveiw (the most hated character in English television), this week Rob runs us down on the Sharma family's chocolate factory fiasco, scream-ups at the pub, and just a little bit of KT news.
In this edition of the critically acclaimed Emmerdale review Rob describes an exciting road trip in which multiple characters end up in the beautiful city of Belfast, birthplace of the Titanic. In Belfast, Marlon and Paddy confront Paddy's father Bear-Wolf in a pub, before moving into a having a really great chat about pies.
In this edition of the Emmerdale Review Mr Bollox fills us in on the attempted frame-up of Kane Dingle by "the scariest man I've seen on television". Kris and "Rootin' Tootin' Pollard" also have a bit of fun with the Emmerdale Wild West name generator.
Rob breaks down a couple of the more complicated storylines that have been slowly unravelling on Emmerdale.
There's a bit of fraud, a touch of alcoholism and of course crime and extortion
It's all there in the Emmerdale Review this week
