Mad Men: Still TV's Gold Standard

It's easy to forget, given that we view it every week in our homes, that a TV show can be art. Mad Men is a work of art which is great whether you believe art should be appreciated for its style alone or also for its content.

Why Responsibility Is the Emerging Competitive Edge

Mary Portas | Posted 22.04.2014 | UK

Responsibility is a mandatory for business - and it's about being mindful. Mindful of others feelings, experiences, ambitions and hopes. Mindful to avoid upsetting them. Mindful to make them happy. Mindful of the things that are important to them. Anyway, I was thinking about my own sense of responsibility (and hopefully integrity) in the context of my business interests and thought I'd explore some of the thinking behind the things I get up to and why I do them.

Ask Anyone Who Can Remember Britpop Where They First Heard It, and the Answer Is Usually Radio 1

Where did you first come across London Grammar? Perhaps on the radio, though of course you could also have found it on Spotify, or via a shared link on Facebook. Where did you first get an earful of German Whip? It might have been on DAB, but equally it may have been Tumblr, or via Playlister, or on YouTube. However, ask anyone who can remember Britpop where they first heard the anthems of that era, and the answer is usually a great deal simpler: Radio 1.

Game of Thrones fans across the world had been waiting for years for the death of King Geoffrey Baratheon, and today the public's wishes were granted, he died a painful death. However I do wonder whether his much anticipated demise has been as satisfactory as expected.

The Met Office now has a team of space weather advisors, monitoring and forecasting potential disruption to the UK due to extra terrestrial events. By this, I mean the possible disruption to the technologies and infrastructure we all now heavily depend upon, including communications systems, power networks, satellite services like GPS, and the aviation industry.

OK, so ITV4 may not be the most high profile channel of them all, and Warren United may not be high profile enough to kick-start a movement towards more British animated comedies on television... but at least it's a start.

Why True Detective Is the Least Original Thing on TV

Compared to the huge finales that US TV series have spoilt us with in recent years in terms of twists and action, the fact that this damp squib of an episode was a total letdown of a series ending was probably the only original thing about the entire show.

As the corporation gears up to negotiating the renewal of the Royal Charter and defending the licence fee (why Ian Fletcher was brought in, after all), W1A is a reminder of why the BBC is worth it. Ok, there are a few other reasons, like BBC News and Radio 4 and live music and (now) the World Service.... You don't have to like them all, just enough of them.

Rev: Help My Unbelief

Caragh Little | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Caragh Little

Rev used to offer subtlety, humanity - the realism that we're not all types or stereotypes, that rooted on feet of clay stand individual people doing their best to come to terms with things. The beauty of Rev used to lie in the puzzlement of Tom Hollander's expression: a man bewildered by circumstance and people.

What are they going to do in an 90 to 120 minutes of movie world time? Tell us about that one time Adama spanked Apollo for disobeying orders? A mini-collage of Starbuck kicking ass and changing the game? A Rambo-esque montage of Gaius Baltar being a raging dickhead?

Hot cross buns aren't necessarily hard to make, they're just a little time consuming. The yeasted dough likes to sit about, lazily getting fatter and fatter until it's knocked back down ready for it's second growth. Don't let the hands off time put you off, just choose a day when you're in the house anyway.
