Cheryl and Julie were the first two to enter the house, and were soon told by Big Bro to create a real life soap opera, by following the instructions given via earpieces... I remember the days when the drama wrote itself and did not have to be directed like one big episode of The Truman Show.
Don't be fooled by the economics degrees, Peabody awards and general smarts possessed by the female characters in The Newsroom. Because they will also, of course, have a propensity to knock things over, send mass emails by mistake, hide under beds while boyfriends have sex above them, and generally behave massively unprofessionally.
There should be a cut off point for women to stop wearing bikinis as it's tacky and indecent when they get to a certain age.
Who am I? I am a businesswoman in a new Versace dress. I'm an author, a painter, a grumpy cow in the mornings, a lover of fast cars, and a girl who should only ever sing when completely alone. Oh and I also have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).
I've watched The Newsroom twice. Initially, I watched it in two sittings; the first taking place in Glasgow airport as my flight was delayed, the second in the air.
I'll be honest with you, I didn't know anything about banking, and I was happy that way. I thought that I'd take care of my business the bankers could take care of there's and we'd all be fine.
I'm a big fan of Henning Menkel's Wallander novels and the Swedish television series that came out of them, and it's only because I still pine for the latter that I watched Kenneth Branagh's English version last night.
Russell Brand premiered a new late-night series in the US last week. Brand X With Russell Brand, which airs on FX in the States, mixes Brand's stand-up with political satire and audience participation. I watched the premiere episode, and it stank.
Armando Iannucci's Veep has arrived on British shores, replacing the cinéma vérité, political satire window that has been left empty by his previous work, The Thick Of It.
"I'm sorry" is a phrase that gets used in BBC 1's four part series True Love twice in two episodes - and both times it's used by men to their wives after cheating on them with another woman.
The fifth season of Mad Men had a troubled creation, with behind-the-scenes squabbles threatening its existence and delaying it for what felt like years, so it's perhaps not surprising that it turned out to be very dark in tone.
SPOILERS - DO NOT read ahead unless you have watched Episode 12 of Mad Men Season 5! The last two episodes of Mad Men before the finale have seen two main characters of the great Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce office (which almost became Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Harris nee Holloway Cosgrove in the penultimate episode) bow out.
I am so bored of people telling me that Big Brother is moronic. The fact of the matter is that it's a programme which offers real drama, real narrative and real characters (once they forget who they're trying to portray) - and there is nothing else on television like it.
In a day full of Jubilee TV, Gary Barlow: On Her Majesty's Service achieved the honour of being the most nauseating show of all yesterday.
I've grown to hate Don Letts... I'm just sick of his sunglasses-indoors-bedecked face cropping up every five minutes to tell the same boring stories about punk. He has become the George Martin of punk - and not in the 'creative genius' way - more in the 'couple of years of doing something, four decades of agreeing to every interview and saying the same old boring crap again and again' way.
It was expected to challenge the dominance of X Factor and sold itself as being a talent show for real voices. Not a show obsessed with the appearance of its contestants or a show which laughed at its singers.
