    Where is Jessica Hyde?

    Friday, January 18th Where is Jessica Hyde? That question was asked repeatedly, throughout the scariest and most stylish thriller I've seen in a long time.  And now, I've got to wait until Tuesday (I think it's Tuesday) before I can watch the second episode.  Which is...

    I was raised by the tv.

    Had a single mother who worked 2-3 jobs. I was literally potty trained while watching Sesame Street. I have the tv on all the time. Now that there is television streaming I don't even need a tv to watch tv. I mostly have it on just so I don't feel like I am alone in the house...

    Gavin and Stacey

    On a whim, this afternoon, I bought the boxed set of Gavin and Stacey, because I wanted to watch it all over again. And towards the end of the first episode it occurred to me, that there might be thousands of men who emulated Gavin and ended up with restraining orders. What can...

    Being human - Sticks and rope

    So Captain Hatch's powers and influences are explored a bit further and - to be honest - for most of the episode, they're pretty underwhelming.  He's capable of whispering nasty little thoughts into peoples' heads and making them fall out with their friends.  It's a shame...

    I have been watching Modern Family all day!

    ! 6 weeks off for summer holidays have made me soooo lazy. No idea how I'm going to get out of bed early tomorrow.

    Still game - Naveed

    Naveed was one of the best characters on Still game. Normally placid and serene, but with a filthy sense of humour ("he couldnae get his hole in a barrel of fannies"). But in this clip, he has a moment of rage. His target was Anne Robinson, though - which is fair enough. I'm...

    Primeval: New world

    I hate to say this, because it makes me sound bigoted and anti-American - which I definitely am not. There are a lot of things I like about America. It's fair to say, though, in the interest of balance, that there are a lot of things I dislike about America - the same as there...

    Far Too Much

    For the longest time, I have kept the TV on as some background noise while I work or clean or whatever. I have gotten used to having it on. For the longest time, I even let my schedule be ruled by it, as I made sure I was home for my favorite show. Thankfully the DVR has...

    I just watched two more episodes of The following and the jury's still out. At this stage, I honestly can't tell if I want to keep watching. It's more than the basic formula I anticipated from the first episode - that episodic kind of thing where every week, a new acolyte...

    or write anymore, though I want to. It's often much easier to just have the tv on in the background of whatever I'm doing.

    Doctor Who - Monsters at the Proms

    It took me a while to do this, but I suppose it was inevitable. I love Doctor Who. I stayed loyal to it, back in the late '80s when it turned ****, then in the early '90s when the story continued in novel format, I started reading it. Month after month, I bought a new book and...

    Captain Hatch's rant

    This was Captain Hatch's best moment on Sunday night's episode of Being human. I'm really hoping he's not all just bluster and that he'll demonstrate some truly frightening potential before the series conclusion. So far, he's showing a lot of promise - mainly due to Philip Davis...

    Sometimes I wake up at 9 am then watch TV till

    7 pm, straight and I only stop at 7 because my mom gets home from work. Sometimes I think I'm addicted to TV, and the lives of the people on it. Even if its sad, or **** scary, their reality will always be better than mine.

    This is a great sketch, making full use of one of Harry Enfield's more enduring characters - Mr Cholmondley Warner.  I can't remember seeing a single sketch with this character that didn't work, but this is definitely one of the best.  I hope everybody else likes it, too. Oh...

    Being human - The greater good

    One thing that Being human has always been great at doing is exploring morality. I genuinely think it's a shame that Mr Rook stabbed that bloke in the eye, because that one act immediately removed a lot of the subtlety and ambiguity from his character. It established him as "a...
