Breakin’ Up is So Very Hard to Do!

February 6, 2012

Sigh. Another month, another unfortunate break-up. It’s always me doing the dumping – ‘it’s not me, it’s you’ – but of course I have to wonder if it is me. Am I just growing out of all my shows? But then I remember the telly addict’s conundrum. Faced with a fabulous new show, we are […]

Kiss and kill ~ Being Human 2.7

March 1, 2010

On a purely emotional level, this episode was brilliant. Toby Whithouse’s excellent script, some beautiful cinematography and bucket loads of tension made for a high quality hour of entertainment. (spoilers follow)

Being Human Super Post ~ 2.4,5,6

February 21, 2010

Okay, I hold my hands up. I have been slacking on my Being Human reviews – partially, I hate to admit, because the show just hasn’t been wowing me lately. Anyway, on to our triple bumper edition:

Move on~ Being Human 2.3

January 30, 2010

This week’s Being Human saw all three characters try to move on from their respective relationships: Mitchell and Herrick (the mentor/student relationship, I suppose, although I always suspected there could be more to Herrick’s obsession with Mitchell’s former exploits), Annie and Hugh (and by extension Hugh and Kirsty) and George and Nina.

This is a fly-by review as I’m a little short on time, but I wanted to get my thoughts down before the next episode! Spoilers below.

Wine and Roses ~ Being Human 2.1

January 13, 2010

Well, the powers that be weren’t lying when they said that series 2 was going to be dark! There was so much going on in this episode that it’s hard to even begin a review without spoilers, so everything’s under the cut just to be on the safe side.

Auld Lang Pumpkin

What up, blog readers?! I hope you’re over your hangoversĀ  because 2010 is well underway. Fangrrl magnet has a great post of mid season tv – looks like it’s going to be a bumper couple of months for us telly addicts. I’m planning to watch: (click for trailers!) Hustle series 6 -STARTS TONIGHT (BBC 1)! […]

The kids are alright ~ three recent British ‘dramedies’

December 3, 2009

Peter Jukes makes some insightful points about the state of British drama here, noting the frustrating increase in hand holding the viewer through simple plotlines and an overemphasis on the primetime ratings behemoths (soaps and the euphemistically namedĀ  ‘continuing dramas’ like Casualty, which are basically soaps except they don’t run all year round). However, I […]

Hey Lenora!

October 29, 2009

In this totally, totally adorable video, Lenora Crichlow, Aidan Turner and Russell Tovey wish their fans a happy Halloween. I LOVE THEM. That is all.

All good things – Being Human 1.6

March 9, 2009

Seneca and job interviews have kept me busy of late, but I still found time to catch up on the last episode of Being Human (series 1 – yes, it’s recomissioned!). Spoilers below the cut.
