  • Seriously, make us an offer.

    Psst. Wanna buy Network TEN? Couple of Canadians will take a few cans of tuna and some maple syrup as a first down payment! The Network is in good nick, and would make a great 21st present to that son or daughter. Plenty of music, Simpsons, American teen dramas (even a few you haven’t seen […]

  • First Review: Medium Season 3

    Let me say from the offset I am a fleeting follower of Medium. I like what I have seen but the premise is something of a stretch for me. A psychic has visions of crimes and manages to neatly piece them together week in, week out. Still it works better than Ghost Whisperer or Supernatural, […]

  • First Review: The Rich List

    So Andrew O’Keefe has finally gotten himself a prime time show. What has the world come to? Seven went and announced The Rich List before American went and cancelled there.

    Congrats to Jessica Rowe and Peter Overton on the birth of their new bub Allegra.

In fact […]
