‘Hoff the Record’ star Brett Goldstein reveals his favourite TV shows

Posted Filed under

Hoff the Record is back for a second season on Dave, with a star-studded array of guest stars joining The Hoff (David Hasselhoff) and his odd-ball entourage.

The Hoff is whisked along by his terrible manager Max (Fergus Craig) and aided by his overqualified and unimpressed PA Harriet (Ella Craig) all the while being followed around by his illegitimate lovechild Dieter (Mark Quartley) and life coached by personal trainer Danny (Brett Goldstein). Driver Terry (Asim Chaudhry) continues his inappropriate tirades as the gang continue to get themselves in ridiculous situations in a bid to revive The Hoff’s career in the UK.

Season 2 begins at 10pm on Friday 6 May on Dave.

CultBox caught up with Brett Goldstein to find out what he likes watching to relax between filming…


TV show that reminds you of your childhood:

The Cosby Show. Awkwardly. We used to sit as a family and watch it together. It was what we watched to learn about life.

“I’ve spent the last few years desperately trying to forget those lessons.”


Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

Scrubs. A perfect show to take you away for a fast, funny 22 minutes. And always makes you cry at the end. And by you, I mean me.”


Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

“I was forced to watch an episode of Chillin’ Hard With the Kardashians and found it incredibly moving. Poor Khloe (or whoever).”


TV show that you find most addictive:

Ash v Evil Dead. For some reason I find this show that involves constant mutilation by chainsaws of demons incredibly warm funny and loveable.

“For something with so much blood and gore, it’s surprisingly charming. My other favourite show of the last year was Asian Provocateur. But then I’d watch Romesh Ranganathan read the weather.”


Favourite TV show to watch hungover:

“I actually usually watch a horror film. Nothing beats the existential dread of a big hangover, than two hours of existential dread.”


Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

Deadwood. I don’t think it was necessarily axed but it ran for three seasons and I know there is an ending that needs to be told. It is an absolute masterpiece from HBO. As good as The Wire, but if The Wire was set in the Wild West. There are always rumours of a movie being made to close it up. I would love that so hard.

“Also, it’s got Lovejoy in it saying ***t all the time. What more do you need to know? Watch it.”
