How about every "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" on demand to start your week?

No we’ve no idea how legal this is, but it’s Monday morning so we’re not going to complain until we get a few laughs and some coffee in us. Can I recommend you start with this UK Season 5 episode with the classic line up of Greg Proops, Ryan Stiles, Mike McShane and Josie Lawrence?

Don’t Stop Google Now on Freddie’s birthday

What would have been the 65th birthday of Freddie Mercury gets the ultimate birthday card. A Google Doodle.
