You Should Know About: Broad City

If someone came up to you and said ‘Yo, you should totally check out this new series that I’ve seen on Comedy Central about two girls living it up in New York’ you’d automatically draw some fairly obvious conclusions: one, that there’s going to be some sort of influence from the Grand Dames of FeminismContinue reading “You Should Know About: Broad City”

Inside Amy Schumer

One of the main reasons that Inside Amy Schumer, the self titled part sketch show, part social examination, is so brilliant at what it does is because it’s a strong voice with a strong message. That message being: I’m a woman, society is doing all these terrible things to us and I want to show you how ridiculous this is.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

I’ve just sat through six hours of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s really early on Mother’s Day and to be honest I’m either too tired or buzzed to celebrate it. I’m too tired or buzzed because I’ve finally found what my heart has been missing since 30 Rock – the GREATEST comedy ever created – finished. And my new love? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Psychobitches; An Excuse To Remind Ourselves How Great Rebecca Front is

How would you feel if someone said this sentence to you? Dear Commissioning Editor. I want to write a one off comedy psychoanalysing some of the most important female figures in history. And I want to have some of the best women of drama and comedy to star in it. Needless to say you’d beContinue reading “Psychobitches; An Excuse To Remind Ourselves How Great Rebecca Front is”

The Snipist – an exercise in AWESOME @mrholness @skyarts #thesnipist

When Sky announced that they were going to show a series of short plays with massive stars in them, I felt a little disheartened. Apart from a slice of Russell Tovey and Alison Steadman getting her end away with Tom Jones, nothing really stood out for me. Call me a philistine if you want, butContinue reading “The Snipist – an exercise in AWESOME @mrholness @skyarts #thesnipist”

What I Watched Last Night – Bob’s Burgers, E4, Midnight

I can take loads of time to explain how brilliant how Bob’s Burgers is, or convince you all that you should set your DVR to record it with immediate effect. But I’m not really that forceful. If you insist on not listening to me by now, then you’re going to die with lots of regrets.

So, instead of drawling on with long words like ‘rationalism’ and ‘justification’ and ‘anthropomorphism’ I’ll sum it up by a quick thirty second video.

Dear Bryan Kirkwood, has Eastenders gone down the pan?

It would seem so, especially according to The Daily Mail, or people who have seen it over the past few months. Comparisons are already being made to it’s heyday of Dirty Den’s dealings and the epic Diederick Santer era, but even harking back to a bygone age isn’t productive to something which needs to representContinue reading “Dear Bryan Kirkwood, has Eastenders gone down the pan?”

#theapprentice; the rot is starting to set in. With @kriswould

This is how we feel about this series of The Apprentice. It’s just not very good compared to previous years. Where’s Claire and her AK47 of bullshit? Or Ahmed and his plate smashing antics? (Well, that was Big Brother, but imagine that malarkey going on in the boardroom. Brilliant.) There’s no stand out characters makingContinue reading “#theapprentice; the rot is starting to set in.

7 Things About #theapprentice Week 7; sponsored by the word ‘strategy’ and @kriswould

No income tax, no VAT, no money back, no guarantee No, not Vodafone, but only the bladdy Apprentice isn’t it? After last week’s disastrous trip to Edinburgh, Lord Sugar decided to take things back to basics and put the most famous Yuppies since Gordon Gecko in charge of a market stall. Like what Delboy andContinue reading “7 Things About #theapprentice Week 7; sponsored by the word ‘strategy’ and @kriswould”

3 Things We’ve Learned From…The Apprentice, or Eleven Go To Edinburgh

After last week’s invention of the Funky Squat we weren’t sure whether we were emotionally ready for this week’s Apprentice. What was going to be imprinted on our eyes forever more? Would we see something that would make our heads explode with such levels of hilarity and embarrassment? The answer is usually a yes whenContinue reading “3 Things We’ve Learned From…The Apprentice, or Eleven Go To Edinburgh”
