Last month, Netflix hit the headlines once again by announcing that it had attracted more than 65 million members globally, with over 42 million of these subscribers coming from the US.
Something had to change. So I've decided to turn off the telly during the week, just for a bit to tame the addiction. I'm not getting precious about it. If we're at someones house and it happens to be on, I won't be shielding the kids eyes or anything. And we'll still be flicking it on as a treat at weekends. But in the week we're going unplugged. Ekkkkkkkkk!
Poor Sarah Harding, the ex Girls Aloud singer, seems to have a hard time on those famous cobbles, and her Coronation Street contract is not to be extended beyond the four episodes she was booked for.
We need to act to stop uncontrolled shark fishing now; adopting effective management before crisis recovery plans are needed. The high seas can no longer be an out of sight out of mind wild frontier where anything goes. We could lose sharks from our seas within my lifetime, and that simply must not happen. Lose the sharks, the mighty, mysterious lords of the deep, and our planet's oceans would be infinitely poorer places.
Jezza tells it straight. I know the guests often have heart breaking stories, webs of lies or just a pure barrel of filth, but sometimes you need to hear it straight. It can help you reflect in your own personal problems and give yourself a good talking to.
This TV phenomenon plainly shows no sign of abating because last week alone we were treated to the less than tantalising trio of Britain's Benefit Tenants, Benefits by the Sea: Jaywick and Dogs on the Dole.
It's a cold night and the car park in Bratislava is lit only by the neon lights from a supermarket. This is where Romana, a prominent gay rights activist was lured after a phone call from a woman who suggested they meet up. In fact, lying in wait were six shaven neo-Nazis.
I'm excited for Freddy. We could all learn a thing or two from him. Freddy has found a purpose and a clear sense of fulfilment in helping others, it's a natural path and one he is choosing for himself, I'm beyond proud.
Sure, there are other characters in the sophomore season of HBO's True Detective, but it's the battle between Detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) and his moustache that offers the most gut-wrenching relationship.
Do I really want someone or something that would simply agree with what I say, because they are programmed to, as oppose to having any emotional investment in the subject matter? Will I miss having a real person supporting me, who is able to read and understand my emotions in the context of their own?
The more people try not to speak about someone's disability or difference, the more they'll end up stumbling - and it's very obvious to that person what's going on. And they won't be offended! I don't mind somebody acknowledging my height or talking about dwarfism. To be honest, if they're curious or inquisitive, I'd rather we did chat about it.
Of course, live television still retains its central importance to UK television viewing, and linear viewing is not going to disappear any time soon. However, changing viewing habits and new ways to watch television mean that the summer months no longer provide audiences with a television 'breather'. Instead, 2015 looks set to be the best year ever for summer TV.
At the diagnosis appointment my surgeon went straight on to suggest a mastectomy followed by a stomach tuck to reconstruct a new breast, and explained how they'd have to reduce the other breast as I was fairly well endowed and it was unlikely they could reconstruct to match.
This series has flown. Despite Big Brother's multiple attempts to reignite the series and keep things fresh, I feel hugely underwhelmed. With the final only days away, never in sixteen years have I felt as apathetic to any housemate line-up as I have Timebombs.
The BBC does not belong to its staff. The BBC does not belong to the Government. The BBC belongs to the country. The public are our shareholders - they pay for us. So it is their voice that will matter most in this debate. And what the public wants is a continually better BBC. So that will be our test for any future proposals. Will audiences be even happier with what they get from us? Is the BBC still able to give them the best output in the world? Have we helped the creative industries grow? That, to me, is the real debate - and the only debate that really matters.
Luck has a lot to do with business success. Being in the right place at the right time certainly helps. If it wasn't for Steve Jobs attending Hewlett-...
