Here Be Spoilers


Welcome to what is, apparently, my blog. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen, but here goes nothing…

Stargate Universe - Sci-fantastic

So after the negativity of my last post I wanted to add something a bit more positive. We're 4 episodes into the launch of the third Stargate franchise, and I have to say I'm really enjoying it. The whole series is like Voyager coming down of a bad trip, and I think getting Robert Carlysle to appear was a real coup.

90210 - oh why?

Dear god, why do I still watch this show? Every single character annoys me. They're all so hateful. And the storylines are so blatantly emotionally manipulative, contrived and over the top. The only sympathetic character may be Navid, son of a porn baron. And he's whiny and doesn't get enough screen time anyway.

How I Met Your Mother - Better than advertised

So along with almost everyone else I know, I've been in love with Alyson Hannigan for some time. I knew she'd gone on to HIMYM after Buffy and I'd heard it was ok, but never bothered to watch it. But E4 recently started showing it at half seven on weeknights and I caught a few episodes and enjoyed it.

Dollhouse - Whedon ftw!

Can't remember what I last said about Dollhouse and checking seems like a lot of effort right now. But season 2 has recently started so this is probably as good a time to talk about it as any other.

Gossip Girl v 90210 - Brain Candy

So this is a debate I've had with a bunch of my friends but for the risk of boring people I've never gone into too much detail. The original purpose of this blog was for me to vent my thoughts without annoying any of them, here goes.

Battlestar Galactica - The wind began to howl

So BSG finally finished

Dollhouse - New beginnings

So, Joss Whedon, has a new show called Dollhouse, just in case you didn't know

Battlestar Galactica - Deadlines

So this post may seem a little out of place, last time I posted about BSG here I had only watched the first bit of the first season.

24 - 7th Time Around

24 has been up and down a lot over the years,

Mock the Week - It takes an episode to laugh, it takes a DVD to cry...

Well after my last post was so universally condemining of British TV I felt it might be important to offer a counterpoint.

Skins - Indicative of british failure

So I bitch about british TV a lot. I often claim that it is inferior to American TV

Previously on...

So I decided to resurrect my blog here, especially as we're about to launch

Frasier S9 E03 – The ethics of continuity

Daphne centric episodes were few and far between in the early seasons

Frasier S9 E01 – Still good

Most people seem to think that Frasier jumped the shark when Niles and Daphne got together

Scrubs S7 E11 - Out of order?

So finale season kind of snuck up on me. I guess I knew it was coming

30 Rock S2 E15 - A rushed ending

30 Rock has been scaring me a lot lately

30 Rock S2 E14 - Pygmalionism

Now this is how to get me to question everything I believe in

Battlestar Galactica S1 E8 – The pressure of expectation

This was another episode with great writing and direction

Battlestar Galctica S1 E7 - Recognition of the past

I think I have run out of superlatives to describe BSG, this was another one that I enjoyed immensely
