Doctor Who: Season One Review

March 11, 2012


As some of you will be aware, because I live commentated every episode, last year I watched six years worth of Doctor Who in a month or so. A brief explanation may be necessary. Brief, because I don’t want to repeat myself and also because I don’t want to bore you. My previous job didn’t […]

Gilmore Girls: Season One Review

March 3, 2012


So, I’ve just finished watching season one of Gilmore Girls. Why would a near forty year old man watch a show clearly aimed at a female audience ? Perhaps an explanation might help. For fourteen years I worked night shift at a supermarket, not getting home till after midnight. So there was never anything decent […]

30 Days Of Female Awesomeness: Day 1; Favourite Lead Female Character.

August 8, 2011


Really, could there ever have been a question as to who my Favourite female lead character would be. Captain Kathyrn Janeway, despite the opinion of a lot of ( in my mind ), very silly people, was the best female lead character of any series, not just science fiction, for a long time. It helped […]

30 Day TV Show Challenge: Day 10; A Show You Thought You Wouldn’t Like But Ended Up Loving

August 6, 2011


At the risk of repeating oneself, until recently, I’ve not watched a lot of television. I show that I didn’t think I would like but now love is…. Masterchef ( Australia ). It’s one of the few reality shows that I’ve ever enjoyed watching. Yes, I said reality, because really, it’s not a cooking show. […]

30 Day TV Show Challenge: Day 9; Best Scene Ever

June 19, 2011


This was a hard one. So while this may not definitively be the BEST scene ever, it’s certainly up there in the top ten scenes. It is definitely in the top three Star Trek Scenes. THERE. ARE. FOUR. LIGHTS ! I’ve always liked this scene, because for me, it’s always shown how even the strongest […]

30 Day TV Show Challenge: Day 8; A Show Everyone Should Watch

June 11, 2011


This show is no longer in production, but it is a show everyone should watch. Rome is a show examining the transition of Rome from republic to empire. From what I understand, it suffers from the typical HBO syndrome of boobs & bums. However, anyone with even a passing knowledge of this period of history […]

30 Day TV Show Challenge: Day 6; Favourite Episode Of Your Favorite TV Show

May 22, 2011


This is a bit of a cheat because I’m copying and pasting from day 4. I was going to do my favourite TNG episode, but it says favourite episode of favourite show, so here it is. DO NOT WATCH THE INCLUDED VIDEO CLIP IF YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THE SHOW. IT CONTAINS INFORMATION THAT SOME COULD […]
