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:

What happened to The Walking Dead’s CGI budget?

Bad CGI in TV shows in no longer acceptable – and viewers of The Walking Dead made that clear last week when we saw the embarrassingly bad CGI deer (above) that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) tried to kill in a fairground. It didn’t get much better in the most recent episode, so what is going on?

Nashville can’t go on without Connie Britton

I’ve been so behind watching Nashville this season so when I saw all the spoilers about Rayna James’ death, I was shocked. I was only five episodes behind! How could this happen? Well I’ve whizzed through those to catch up and I cannot believe what’s happened.

Westworld season finale: My thoughts

*SPOILER ALERT*

So the Westworld finale took place last night and I was so keen to avoid spoilers that I actually got up before work to watch all 90 minutes of it. I’m glad I did but there weren’t as many shockers to avoid as I expected – cos we had seen most of the revelations coming for a while.

OMG! Westworld has hit us with a shocking game changer

**SPOILER ALERT**

I haven’t written about Westworld before because I have been quite ambivalent about it. It looks beautiful, the acting is great and I felt assured that the story would have a good pay off but I felt confused and frustrated that no story seemed to be taking shape, or doing so too slowly. Things stepped up a gear at the end of last week and this week’s episode 7 is the game changer I definitely needed.

Goodbye Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off is over, and not just for this series but for good on the BBC. I must admit I felt a little emotional during the final last night and I never have before so I blame my emotions on realising that was the last ever episode of Bake Off as we know it. It’s the end of an era!

The Walking Dead was brutal in the best possible way

The season seven premiere of The Walking Dead aired on Sunday night so I got up in the morning UK time to watch it so it wouldn’t be spoiled and I’m so glad I did. The episode is shocking, gross and amazing in a way that would not have stayed secret for long (no way I would have got through Twitter or work) and I don’t blame these people cos I need to talk about it too! Hence my episode review…

The Great British Bake Off is OVER

I have never written about The Great British Bake Off on this blog before but I have been quietly watching the programme for the last few years, before it became the cultural phenomenon it is today. It was bad enough that the show was leaving the BBC for Channel 4 but now the show we know and love is over, all because of greed!

Emmys 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

I feel like I haven’t done a red carpet round-up in aaaages! But the awards season is creeping up on us slowly but surely and it all kicked off last night with the biggest TV show ceremony – the Emmys. Game of Thrones and People V OJ Simpson cleaned up (see all the winners here) but my main focus is on the red carpet, of course.
