The 89th Annual Academy Awards took place last night. It was an … interesting show. While Simon and I live-blogged the whole thing I have a few follow-up thoughts on the spectacle.
News, Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 – And the Winner Is… Production!
After ten long, twisted, weeks there is finally a winner for Big Brother Canada Season 3. And how.
Of course, this being reality television the finale was a two hour show the first ten minutes alone dedicated to recapping the season thus far with dramatic voice overs from the three remaining HGs. And it wasn’t until the last 5 minutes that anything of real importance was revealed.
Well, I shouldn’t say of any importance. We did get down to the business of declaring a final in a fairly timely fashion. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 26 – The Final Final Twist (No Really… We Mean It This Time)
Big Brother Canada ends next week. So if you were watching last night and did some quick math you might have realized that they were going to need to throw out another Twist, Twistos sponsored or not. And so, even though they said the last Twistos Twist! was the final twist of the season we ended up with another one. Double eviction night! Again! Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on BBCAN3 ep 25 – The Best Friend or The Boyfriend?
We’ve all been one corner of this particularly hellish triangle. Take two best friends, add in a significant other and lay down an ultimatum. Them or me. Already it’s a hard choice, but throw in the prospect of $100,000 and it becomes impossible.
Which is where we find our houseguests this evening… Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 24 – Hell, Heroes & Jalapenos
All I want to do is talk about the Mad Men finale. And gossip about the Mad Men finale. And gush about the Mad Men finale. I want to speculate about what would have happened if we saw them in the 70s. And that kiss. THAT KISS! But instead I’m going to talk about Big Brother Canada, Sunday’s other thing that happened that most of you won’t watch until later. (sidenote: if you’d rather talk Mad Men, specifically Stan’s ass in those jeans, hit me up on twitter @katarnett)
Suffice it to say that the tables have indeed turned, as they have a tendency of doing in this game…. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on BBCAN3 – The Final Twistos Twist
If I was being paid to advertise for Twistos I might make a comparison that there are two sides to the Big Brother Canada Twistos Twist!
But they’re not.
So what I will say is that there are good and bad aspects of every Twistos Twist! they’re throwing at the house this year. We can all agree it’s made for some very interesting television, which ultimately is the show’s main objective. But I for one am glad they’re done. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 20 – (Twistos) Twist The Knife In My Heart
Triple. Eviction. Night.
No one could have seen this coming. In the biggest TWISTOS TWIST! of the season (or of any season anywhere) tonight saw three people hit the bricks. One of which was in tears. If you haven’t watched it yet don’t read any further because I’m about to spoil it for you. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 18 & 19 – Never Trust a Big Butt & A Smile.
It’s Tuesday. I figured by Tuesday I would be able to drum up something clever to spin about the show. Something that transcends the nothing much that happened on Sunday & Monday’s episodes. And yet, here I am on Tuesday. Stalling. Contemplating pouring another cup of coffee. Updating facebook about “Dad Bod” in comparison to Magic Mike XXL and then searching iTunes for Ginuwine because once one get’s Pony stuck in their head one must listen to the entire song.
And then Bell Biv Devoe’s Poison shuffled up on my playlist. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 15 – The Best Lie is None At All
The two worst things that a person can do while in the Big Brother house is a) have a big ego & b) tell a big lie. Gossip, backstabbing, and failed coups will not damage your game as much as those two things. And when the two are combined? Someone is about to go down. Spectacularly. Continue reading…
Editorial, News, Television / Comments Off on Remedy. It’s the Family You Choose That Matters Most.
With the epidemic of hyperbole filling every last gap of the internet it would be easy to blow off that statement. Content is being created on so many platforms I feel like every other day someone is telling me about the “best show ever”. Binge-watching has become an accepted term and celebrated practice. Emotions and descriptors have gone off the rails.
This isn’t that. Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway
I’ve finally seen all of Daredevil, the first of Marvel’s (current) 5 Netflix shows. So here’s a quick rundown of what I thought of all 13 episodes. TL;DR version? I liked it, but I didn’t love it. Also, this review will contain spoilers. I’ll keep it to a minimum but it is just not going to be possible to avoid them all, and since I like it enough to recommend you watch it, well, … you’re warned anyway.
Television / Comments Off on Doctor Who Season 8 Finale (Finally) – The Experiment Ends
We all knew it had to end sometime. In my case the end came ten days late. Mostly because I was busy doing other things and just couldn’t get around to mustering up the right mood to watch it. So the Doctor sat on my DVR for a while. I did watch the entire seventh season (so far) of Sons of Anarchy. But I hate endings. I still have the season one finale of Remedy and the series finale of the Office to watch. What can I say, I hate goodbyes.
That said, I did sit down to my last Doctor’s appointment this week, here’s how that went… Continue reading…
Television / Comments Off on Doctor Who and the Race to Save Mankind From Themselves and Others
Turns out my DVR gets a bit temperamental when it’s being overworked. And then it refuses to record Doctor Who for you. So you have to figure out when the Space Channel is actually going to re-air the episode you missed all the while it keeps telling you “recording space is low” but when you go to watch the Daily Show it will only play one minute and then withhold the other 29 as some sort of punishment. I digress. The point is I’ve finally been able to see the last two episodes of Doctor Who before this weekend’s finale. Shall we begin? Okay then. Continue reading…
