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”

Why We Love TV

Unless you’ve been hiding under a Mike Baldwin shaped rock for the past few days, you won’t have missed the sad passing of Anne Kirkbride, the soap behemoth behind Deirdre Barlow. Deirdre, the character who ensnared a nation with her unlikely sexual prowess; she once seduced Street lothario Dev Alahan, to the collective disgust ofContinue reading “Why We Love TV”

Jessica Lange Is Leaving American Horror Story. And What?

“Yes, I’m done,” confirmed Jessica Lange on Sunday, putting to rest months and months of speculation about whether she was going to continue with the show into its fifth season, or bow out like some people think she probably should have done a few seasons ago. Which means that Lange is leaving an almost burstingContinue reading “Jessica Lange Is Leaving American Horror Story. And What?”

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.

The Great British Bake Off Final; Let’s Here It For The Boys

As the ganache topping is about to set on this year’s series of Great British Bake Off, all the contestants who weren’t really as good as they should have been have discarded into the bin, like the desiccated fruit that no one wants in their cakes, leaving only the very best of this series toContinue reading “The Great British Bake Off Final; Let’s Here It For The Boys”

Alex Polizzi; The Ellen Ripley of Hospitality

If you’ve ever been to an hotel that has a mildew sodden carpeted bathroom, or a mirrored ceiling when all you wanted was a sea view, then don’t feel too bad because there is finally a woman prepared to put down her prawn cocktail and stand up, ding the bell on the hotel counter untilContinue reading “Alex Polizzi; The Ellen Ripley of Hospitality”

Jessie J Leaves The Voice; Get The Fine China Back Into Storage, She’ll Only Want To Wear It

Wasn’t The Voice great? Well, no, not really. It was one of the more bizarre ideas that the BBC have decided to enact, and that’s taking the whole Sam and Mark thing into account as well, but it started off well. Just like most things in life a good start usually continues through to somethingContinue reading “Jessie J Leaves The Voice; Get The Fine China Back Into Storage, She’ll Only Want To Wear It”

Sound The Alarm! Pantyliner Advert Uses The Word ‘Vagina.’

The realms of ridiculousness has reached even scarier depths (and I’m taking Jedward’s career into account) as an advert for pantyliners has used the word ‘vagina’ and ‘discharge.’ The absolute monsters at Johnson and Johnson have outraged the entire World by including words for their Carefree pads that would accurately describe what a product wouldContinue reading “Sound The Alarm! Pantyliner Advert Uses The Word ‘Vagina.’”
