Grace Dent on TV: BBC One's Car Share actually made me laugh out loud

independent.co.uk — I rarely laugh at modern sitcoms. Statisticians could prove this with a graph. Gosh, I want to laugh. And many times while watching a celebrated writer's latest labour of love a willing smile will dance around my mouth. Still, a genuine LOL (as the hip things say) is rare.

Grace Dent reviews Roux at Parliament Square

standard.co.uk — Let's be frank, nigh-continuous chat about politics is enough to make anyone fall asleep in their consommé. The last thing I want to see right now is a bloody politician gibbering on about fiscal reform. So this week I headed for dinner at a Westminster hotspot.

Grace Dent: That Bruce Jenner's interview is such big news speaks volumes

nzherald.co.nz — Bruce Jenner identifies as a woman. "I have always been confused by my gender identity," he told interviewer Diane Sawyer on US TV. Months after the global Princess of Pop Culture Kim Kardashian had her "Break the internet" moment by flashing her plentiful rump on the cover of a magazine, her stepdad Bruce choked the Twittersphere with a revelation of his own.

Bruce Jenner interview: We think being transgender is a rare thing. And that’s part of the problem

independent.co.uk — Bruce Jenner identifies as a woman. "I have always been confused by my gender identity," he told interviewer Diane Sawyer on US TV.

Grace Dent on TV: W1A is the BBC pulling its pants down and slapping its own bare cheeks

independent.co.uk — I continue to stare aghast at the BBC2 sitcom W1A. It's acutely, excruciatingly observed and painfully funny. I watch W1A through my fingers. I have lived this life, sat in these meetings. Did John Morton and Paul Schlesinger create this drama as some sort of cathartic journey for metropolitan TV workers, or do other people get the gags?

Grace Dent reviews Grain Store Unleashed

standard.co.uk — I've never been one to underestimate the culinary prowess of vegetables. As any sane person knows, the very best part of hosting Sunday lunch is when the vile masses have buggered off, leaving you alone with Countryfile on BBC One, a massive glass of Chianti and all the leftover roast potatoes.

Jeremy Clarkson is brave in opening up. So don’t sneer at him

independent.co.uk — "Never complain, never explain" goes the old adage - attributed to Benjamin Disraeli - denoting the absurdity of trying to appease your enemies. Your friends don't need explanations. Your enemies won't believe them. Recently, as internet tittle-tattle increasingly governs our worldview, the advice has never been more apt.

Grace Dent on TV: The Secret Life of the Pub is sexist, ageist and a breath of fresh air - give these bitter men a whole series

independent.co.uk — An hour of telly about blokes "bantering" - without women - in a sticky-carpeted British pub cannot have been the easiest of shows to commission in our increasingly squeamish-about-real-life climate. What if one of these men down the Lord Nelson said something, y'know, a bit like men actually say in the pub?

Grace Dent reviews the Ivy Chelsea Garden

standard.co.uk — I don't have a terrific amount of luck with Chelsea. My last SW3 dining foray was pre-Christmas at Canvas, chef Michael Riemenschneider's ambitious 'Build your own 15-course tasting menu' project. As if tasting menus weren't long and torturous enough. Anything over seven courses is, in my opinion, technically kidnap.

Game of Thrones leak: Brits are now the world's biggest pirates, but I know how we can stop them

independent.co.uk — As the first four episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 leaked online over the weekend, it was little surprise to me that UK pirates downloaded - or stole, to put it bluntly - more copies than anyone else in the world. Reports say 9.8 per cent of all illegal downloads recorded were from the UK.
