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 […]

My review of ‘Being Human’ seemed to go down well last week, so I thought I’d continue and give you my thoughts on episode 2. I’m loving the function on wordpress that tells you how people got to your blog. Somehow, someone ended up at last week’s ‘Being Human’ post via the search ‘is Being […]

Why do we even try? – Being Human 1.1

‘Why do we even try?’ cries George, a hospital porter who also happens to be a werewolf to his best friend Mitchell, who just happens to be a vampire. Why do we even try to be human? Such is the essential question raised by Toby Whithouse’s ‘Being Human’, which started its full series last night. […]
