Not everything can be as good as The X-Files. But I had nothing to worry about with Stranger Things and I knew it within 7 minutes into the pilot (and yes, I noted the time I texted my sister cursing her for recommending a show that made me want to crap my pants already).
Two evictions down and the novelty of 'the amazing new series' has begun to wear off slightly. I'm still thoroughly enjoying things so far; however two weeks in we've lost I feel the two strongest characters yet and I'm questioning whether the entertainment will decline.
This list is comprised of my personal (that means my own opinion) picks for the top 5 kick ass-iest (if you're wondering, I coined the term) female driven television shows currently on air. Kick ass being defined as extremely good or impressive with or without actual ass kicking occurring within the plot lines.
Although I grew to love the morally challenged criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman, on one of my all time favorite TV shows, AMC's Emmy award-winning Breaking Bad, I didn't make a point to watch it when it first premiered because it was still a TV show about a lawyer.
As we now know, the lucky candidate was Vana Koutsomitis. Yes, I am aware that she was the runner up and as a consequence won't have to answer to Lord Sugar ever again, hence the use of the word 'lucky' as opposed to 'cursed'. You have to sympathise with the winner. Poor Joseph Valente, plumbing new depths of awfulness with that company name and logo.
I love the show, always have, always will. I have no shame in telling people that I watch Neighbours and I'll champion how good it is to anyone who will listen. More people should watch it and this week was a great place to reconnect with those forgotten neighbours.
Kirsty and Brendan danced the Charleston to 'Bad Romance' by Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox; it was pretty much as bad as anything I have seen on a dance floor, and I speak as a woman who learned Irish dancing with a boy called Adrian who had a club foot.
It was an interesting week for many reasons, not least of which was that Tess had finally cracked and murdered her stylist. We knew this because she wore a rather lovely dress and her hair looked nice.
Tonight Siralanlordsugar challenged both teams - back to boys versus girls, yawn - to create and market a brand new shampoo. And not just any old shampoo. One with a unique ingredient - cactus seed oil. I shall refrain from making any reference to it being suitable for a bunch of pricks.
Anita and Gleb performed the American Smooth to 'Unchained Melody' from Ghost. Gleb is without question the hottest dancer Strictly has ever had and thus caused me to lose concentration and I focused entirely on his muscular arse, so I've no idea if the routine was any good. Soz.
The final of the Great British Bake Off did not disappoint. More than 14million viewers tuned in to see Tamal, Nadiya and Ian bake, among other things, classic British cakes.
Monday, the first semi-final, gave us world class singing, dancing, aliens and a record breaking balloon popping dog. So who will join Team Midas' Cor...
With viewing figures going through the roof, this season of BGT is without doubt getting everyone talking and I am loving every minute of it. Durin...
Britain's Got Talent is, quite simply, the most watched and best TV show of the whole weekend. It has everything, talent, fun and Simon Cowell. What more could you want?
Over 11 million of us watched the BGT 2015 first show and it was, arguably the best ever opening episode. A show that had everything, including a comb...
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's Inside No. 9 is a delightfully twisted tour de force and The Trial of Elizabeth Gadge was no exception.
