Ah, the weekend. You know there’s nothing you want to do more than curl up on the couch with some wine (or a few pints of bitter) and binge shows on Netflix. And one of the best shows for binging has to be Midsomer Murders. With nearly 20 years’ worth of feature film-length episodes, Midsomer Murders offers hours upon… Continue reading Midsomer Murders Drinking Game
Welsh crime drama Hinterland is one of the best things I’ve ever seen, on TV or elsewhere. I found it (on Netflix Instant) when I was having a mild existential crisis on a Thursday night, and it proved to be the perfect remedy. Spending time in this quiet part of Wales is much better than staring… Continue reading Hinterland
I’m not sure how I feel about Black Mirror. The writers seem to have a rather dim view of humanity. I watched the first season–consisting of 3 episodes–in one night, and then I had to take a break. Black Mirror is well-made, there’s no doubt about that. The writing is good, the acting is good,… Continue reading Black Mirror
I don’t think I’ve ever turned off a television show in the middle of it. I can ususally bear 23 minutes to see something to the end, even if I’m not that into it. But after watching one and a half episodes of The Spoils of Babylon, I had to turn it off after Tobey… Continue reading The Spoils of Babylon

How can actors keep a straight face and remember their lines when there’s a dude standing in front of them saying “And now, French salute: ploon, ploon, ploon,” while making weird hand motions? But maybe everyone isn’t like me. Anyone who participated in the making of our 10th… Continue reading Hyperdrive
My thoughts on whatever TV shows I’m watching right now. They aren’t current, they’re most likely British, and I’ve likely seen them before. Spoilers. Peep Show Season 4, Episode 5: The Holiday (Netflix Instant). This is one of the most fucked up episodes of a television show ever. While on Mark’s stag party on a… Continue reading Peep Show
This post was completely inspired by 30 seconds of an episode of The Mindy Project. I love this show. It’s a romantic comedy, with recurring battles of the sexes between Mindy and her personal Mark Darcy, Danny Castellano. Mindy and Danny often play out various gender clichés. Clichés are funny, but they’re also kind of… Continue reading Girl Music is from Jupiter
Hey, single ladies: are you sad? Are you really sad? Are you like super duper mega sad? Does your life’s worth depend on having a boyfriend and being on a track to getting married and having a baby? Do you watch TV and think, “Gee, I just can’t identify with single female characters unless they… Continue reading Ermahgerd: Berbies!
