With about two-thirds of the world population in a post-Breaking Bad slump, I have come up with some ideas (all tenuous, all horrible, all will be on Channel 5 within a year) to postpone the realisation that it has finished, just that little bit longer.
- A former hitman (Nicholas Lyndhurst) who, on his last job was shot by his own ricocheting bullet re-evaluates his life and turns to teaching Biology at a local high school. He uses his intimate knowledge of the human body and the natural world to become a ‘hit’ in the classroom and in society, but can his past stay away?: Breaking Good
- Alan Titchmarsh looks at poor soil management and how that may have affected farmers in the past: Raking Bad
- The history of inefficient limestone chemical reactions is examined by Professor Brian Cox: Slaking Bad
- People with a host of dermatological diseases talk to Dr Christian Jessen: Flaking Bad
- Robert Peston sets out the ways in which trends come and go and whether the internet age has increased the speed of the cycle: Making Fads
- To raise awareness of testicular cancer Mary Berry tries to break the world record for making the most genital shaped cakes in a 24 hour period: Baking Nads
- Tommy Walsh smashes central heating units: Breaking Rads
- A new drama starring James Corden who plays a man pretending to be a father so as to gain the affections of his next door neighbour: Faking Dad
Of course the list can go on, but I will spare you from the deepest pun-generating recesses of my mind.
