We caught up with Milton to find out what he likes to watch to relax between shows…

Favourite TV show to cheer you up:

Modern Family. A slick and funny American sitcom – no doubt they put lots of money into the writing. When will we learn?

Favourite TV show to watch before going to sleep:

“Any kind of football. Under 17 Lithuania v North Korea will do. It’s like staring into the fire.”

TV show that reminds you of being a teenager:

Blackadder. Top comic actors with lots of funny things to say. Rowan Atkinson at his gargoyle best.”

Favourite “guilty pleasure” TV show:

Traffic Cops. It gives the illusion that the police are in control. Also the commentary is so obvious. For example, if a man is arrested in a pub: ‘this bloke is nicked from one bar and put behind some others’ – I stand on the sofa and applaud. Obviously the next step for these shows is for the viewers to vote on sentencing.”

Axed TV show that you most wish would return:

Arrested Development. Great American sitcom about another dysfunctional family, but apparently a bit bright for the US market. But I hear they’re making a film!”
