MailOnline, that means you!

I hate you.  You keep ruining the shows I am trying to watch.  I don’t read the articles but the pictures, video clips and the headlines you use tell me pretty much everything I am trying desperately NOT to know.

There are some of us who rely on catch up tv to watch the popular shows.  We can’t watch it at the time it is aired.  The reasons are numerous.  Mine is obviously that I’m an expat so I have to wait 24hrs to catch up.  But there are people in the UK who can’t either.  People who have to go to bed early.  People who work shifts.  People who are studying.  So many reasons.

So please, for the love of all things tv secrety, Continue reading


Armchair Detectives

I break with my catch up for an up to date event, because I have words in my head that I need to use up!

Last night The Boy and I ended up watching the new Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix. We have always both been interested true crime type things, and so the odd documentary like this is something we both want to watch and don’t have to compromise on!!

Product Placement

Have you ever watched a really popular show and noticed how many brands are visible? Everything from FedEx to Apple. They pay a huge chunk to the tv people (yeah, I have no idea who more than that) and their product is placed somewhere so that you subliminally think of them next time you want a new computer or a parcel couriered.

It’s kind of clever really, but it appears not to work with me more than counting how many global names I recognise.

No, what gets me is the food. I’m not talking about a particular soda or a type of coffee house. I mean actual food.

When I binge watched Scandal, all I fancied was Continue reading

The Perfect Proposal?

I spent yesterday (aherm, last week) binge watching trash tv. It’s my guilty pleasure. I don’t watch things that make me think, or things that make me smart. I watch pure rubbish. And I am very happy with that.

However, yesterday everyone seemed to be getting engaged.

(Skip this if you don’t want spoilers… Although in fairness, I am catching up on older tv shows (or rewatching things I’ve seen a hundred times!) so you probably already know these characters go through this!)

Picture of the pretty sparkly to break the page for the spoilers!!

We need a chat, America.

Right… The Voice… Ryan Sill…

Why do you keep leaving it to save him in a damn tweet-off?!  He is absolutely crushing everyone he is going against in that section (49% of the votes against two others is awesome!), so why can’t you just vote for him properly so the poor lovely doesn’t have to go through that each week?!

Also, can someone please tell Gwen to stop trying to mould him into what she likes, and listen to him?  I think he would be way more comfortable then.

And another ‘also’… can someone please get a dance coach for him?  If he had training every day, he would start to feel more comfortable in his own skin.  I am not saying he needs to learn a routine, but I think it will help him with movement on stage.

One more… Get him into something a bit more “swoon-worthy” than a jersey.  He is a good looking kid with a good shape to him.  Show it off (not to a rude level) and bring in the girl vote!  That smile is enough to melt hearts at a 1,000 paces, so use it his visual assets to enhance his appeal.

I mean, seriously!  Do I have to come and show Gwen how to manage this boy?  She should have paid more attention than investing everything into that Anita one who has thankfully gone.

Right, I think that’s about it.  Get voting properly this week, please!

Rant over.

(And yes… I know this will have all of 3 people reading it, one of which is my mother, but I feel better for getting it off my chest now!!)
