The Twin Peaks season premiere was damn hard work

Unless you have been living in a cave, you will have probably heard about Twin Peaks coming back on Sunday night with a two-part premiere. With me living in the U.K. and having to start work super early, it took me quite a while to get through the two hour show and I’m glad I did it in a few sittings because it was seriously hard work and really tested my tolerance for the weird.

I’m not surprised Scream Queens has been cancelled

Today it was announced that Scream Queens had been cancelled after two seasons. It had kinda been on the horizon for a while and Lea Michele had left to film a new comedy pilot so its prospects never looked good but I’m neither surprised or that disappointed that it’s been axed.

I have mixed feelings about the 13 Reasons Why season two renewal

I LOVED 13 Reasons Why, I even wrote a gushing piece about it just last week, and it has now been confirmed that a season two is on the way. It’s hardly surprising – the show has been a major success for Netflix and the end of season one definitely left it open for more. But I’m torn between wanting closure and being worried it won’t be as good.

13 Reasons Why is fantastic and doesn’t deserve all this criticism

13 Reasons Why was released all in one go on Netflix at the end of March and has heavily criticised for “glamorising suicide” and for its unflinching portrayals of sexual assault, and the haters, mostly parents, schools and academics, are still talking about it weeks later. I’m not much of a binge watcher but I finished the last nine episodes this weekend, which is a testament to how good it is, and now I feel like I need to defend it.

I don’t want a Big Little Lies season two

Big Little Lies, which ended in the U.S. aaaages ago, finally got its finale in the U.K. this week and I LOVED it. I enjoyed the whole show and I was sad that we wouldn’t be getting more episodes but upon further reflection, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t want there to be a season two.

I preferred the penultimate Girls episode to the finale

Girls finished for good last night. I must admit I’m not sad it’s over and I think that’s because I got those feelings out of the way last week. The penultimate episode felt like a more traditional finale whereas the actual finale was more of an epilogue and I was a bit disappointed.

Was this week’s Girls episode the best ever?

I usually write TV pieces when I’m annoyed, disappointed or have a bunch of criticisms so I thought it would make a nice change to write a gushing one full of praise. And I’m not just doing it for the sake of it – this week’s episode of Girls was excellent.

The Walking Dead finale was distinctly meh

So The Walking Dead has been plodding along at a deathly pace, getting everything in line for last tonight’s ‘explosive’ finale so after weeks of build up and filler, I was expecting something epic so I was seriously disappointed.

Carl Weathers and Philip Winchester launch Chicago Justice in the U.K.

Earlier this week, the legend that is Carl Weathers (yes, THAT Carl Weathers from Rocky and Predator) came to London to launch his new legal drama Chicago Justice with his co-star Philip Winchester – here are my pics from that event.

Five reasons why I’m loving this season of Girls

I haven’t been a consistent fan of Girls – in fact in season two and three I almost quit – but I stuck with it, and that finally paid off in season five, which I thought was the best so far. Season six has easily surpassed it for these reasons:
