In June of last year I was performing my daily-scroll through Tumblr and stumbled upon a gifset of two brunette ladies looking all badass, confident and strong. After some delving into the tags I found it was for a new show called ‘Wynonna Earp’. My initial reaction? ‘Sign me up!’
So after a bit of Googling I found out that the series would be airing in the UK the following month, so I waited with bated breath for the series to premiere. My god I am so glad I hopped along for the ride.
‘Wynonna Earp’ first started out as a comic series, created by Beau Smith. The concept for a TV series was picked up by Emily Andras (famed for showrunning ‘Lost Girl’). Based in the quirky town of Purgatory, Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano) works alongside her bookworm sister, Waverly (Dominique Provost Chalkley) to seek out the truth behind the illustrious ‘Earp Curse’. With the help of Agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson) and Doc Holliday, yes, that Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon), Wynonna is determined to hunt-down the revenants (evil demon cowboys returned from the dead) pillaging her town.
Upon the recommendation of my friend Fiona, on 18th August I started watching Gilmore Girls. It took me a looooong time to get through all 7 seasons, but as of Monday I have officially finished the first run of the show.
A story about Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (short for Lorelai (she named her after herself (I know right?!))) Gilmore, the show follows the tale of mother and daughter through school, first love, college, college dropout, back to college and graduation. We are taken on a journey of ups and downs, highs and lows, that makes us fall in love with the small town of Stars Hollow, and its inhabitants.
BBC One is known for its staple crime dramas of a Sunday eve and last night didn’t disappoint. Now when you think of Agatha Christie your mind is automatically taken to Marple, Poirot…and that one Doctor Who episode that affirms everyone’s irrational fear of wasps.
But last night two of Christie’s lesser known sleuths were brought to the screen in ‘Partners in Crime’.
You’re getting a very spontaneous and off-the-cuff blog post here, because to be 100% honest, I’m a little creeped out.
You may not have seen THAT advert yet, and if you haven’t I’m envious.
I was just casually waiting for the second episode of my daily Big Bang Theory intake on E4 when all of a sudden a melodic, yet eerily haunting, voice took control of my television.
“Meet Sally… your new best friend…”
Let me just tell you now. There is no way I would be having a ‘best friend’ like that around my children. I was genuinely terrified by the following minute and a half of footage.
Now – after strenuous research (meaning I typed it in on Google) I miraculously discovered that it is in fact an advert for a new TV show called Humans.
But the extremities to which Channel 4 have gone to in their marketing is something else. They have created a dedicated webpage (click here) on which you can find out all about the Persona Synthetics, giving you the specifics on two of the models; Sally and Charlie. You can also buy your own Sally on their personal eBay profiles for as little as £20,000. An absolute bargain.
Human’s begins on Channel 4 sometime in June. I’m not quite sure if I’ll be watching yet.
Saturday 26th March 2005. 7pm. BBC One. The world waited in anticipation for the familiar sounds of the blue policebox housing a man who would take them on a lifetime of adventure and excitement.
Yes, exactly 10 years ago today what is now dubbed as ‘New Who’ graced our screens for the first time. With Christopher Eccleston taking to the helm of the TARDIS accompanied by the brilliant Billie Piper, we didn’t quite realise just how much of an impact this BBC family drama would have on our lives.
So after the much acclaimed (and very much screamed at) season finale of the CW’s Arrow on Wednesday night we look towards next season’s buffet of superhero shows. Following on from the success of this season and the ultimate hype that superhero TV and film has had since the critically acclaimed Avenger’s Assemble, it is no surprise that American TV networks are snatching up as many of these shows as possible. Here’s what we have to look forward to next season:
“The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it’s a world, or a relationship… Everything has its time. And everything ends” – Doctor Who, School Reunion.
If I’m completely honest I didn’t watch much TV this month and so I didn’t have much that I could choose from in my top 5. But from what I did manage to get round to watch I have picked the programmes that I thought were the best.
