We’ve just started Season 5 of Breaking Bad and the excellent music discoveries off the show keep coming. Previously we’ve heard and loved Darondo ‘Didn’t I’ and Timber Timbre ‘Magic Arrow’, this time it’s Whitey. Just one of the reasons this series is a must-watch. Enjoy!
Idris Elba has just won Best Actor for a miniseries at the 2012 Golden Globes, and coincidentally, we started watching the series on Netflix just the day before. Watch it – even if cop series aren’t your thing, you will enjoy this!
It’s addictive, and even though it delves into the darkest side of human behavior (blood-sucking murderers, creepy cabbies, marital affairs – you get the idea); Luther strangely enough, is the first thing to make me miss London since leaving there. Props to the three cinematographers – Julian Court, Giulio Biccari, and Tim Fleming (credited on IMDB). It makes the city look positively wonderful.
The Simpsons much anticipated episode featuring New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo Flight Of The Conchords has just screened in America. “Elementary School Musical” had The Simpsons writers channeling their scathing satirical genius toward musical tv shows – and appropriately had Bret and Jemaine take the piss out of their own musical-comedy schtick, as well as the cast of Glee on hand to get the message across. Lisa goes to Art Camp…
Somewhat ashamedly, I think the fact that I LOVED this TV show ‘A Small Wonder’ when I was a little girl says a lot about who I’ve become today.
Yes, ladies and gentleman – meet Vicky, the robot child of a squeaky-clean all-American family in the 80s. I wanted to be her.
How to Make it in America is a new comedy offering from the producers of Entourage (which I LOVE). This one is set in Manhattan (and bits probably in Williamsburg) with a couple of man-boys trying to make it in the world of premium denim/street wear. They’re hustlers, hopeless, but kind of endearing. There’s also the token nerd-guy and hispanic uncle just out of prison. I’m only 4 episodes into the first season, it’s full of hipster parties, skating and street art – but I’m kind of into it… !
