World News – GB – The Noughties were a pleasant, albeit tinged pink, reminder of a seemingly simpler era


In normal times I wonder why the BBC is so keen on reminding us of different decades, but in the end 2020 it’s obvious: there was no Covid-19 The Last Episode of these time travel-based chat shows is The Noughties, in which effervescent Angela Scanlon is joined by two comedians to open the memory box labeled 2000-2009

The relaxed (but still socially distant) format set the opener, a 2000 focus, to stand out from the rest of the nostalgia-driven music video shows Scanlon was joined by Ellie Taylor and Geoff Norcott, all three chatting in someone’s living room like old buddies trying to remember where they were 20 years ago It made the features more performant – answering The Weakest Link questions and putting the movies in the order of box office success – more bearable

It was, however, a rather rosy take on recent history, and the trio couldn’t help but look at the turn of the millennium through a 2020 target.They cringed their teeth during the outrageously sexist interview by Michael Parkinson with Victora Beckham, declared Coyote Ugly a bastion of Noughties feminism, and revisited the relatively tame Ruby Wax documentary with Donald Trump

Apart from fixed subjects like the first series of Big Brother and Britney Spears’ red jumpsuit, little rigidity allowed to wander quietly in the collective memory of the nation rather than running until 2001 Yet despite all its benefits, I’m afraid asking the most nostalgic viewers to tune in for nine more episodes will cause him to push it We can, after all, only live in the past for so long
