HBO’s most recent series, The Night Of, is not like any other crime drama you might have watched. The eight part series might begin with a murder and end with a murder trial, but it takes a different approach to the genre that proves refreshing and engrossing. Read more …
Supernatural is an American fantasy horror show produced by Eric Kripke. Starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the main characters, the show first premiered on September 13, 2005, on The WB, and subsequently became part of successor The CW’s (The US and Canada TV Network) television lineup.
Why I believe they should either be taxed more, or engage much more in CSR, if they intend to profit off this season of the Bachelor.
Dear Network 10 management,
On episode 10 of the Bachelor, I watched as Richie and Alex had a single date based around the idea of ‘chocolate’. Now, for once, I shan’t make it a priority to critique the date or the women or the outfits as per usual. Today, my issue is that of the abuse of chocolate propagated by this bachelor Richie Strahan, by the ditz of a date of his, Alex, and by the colossally lousy asshats producing this show.
Why am I calling them lousy asshats today? Because they let this pair of morons waste hundreds of millilitres of chocolate on ‘cutesiness’ and a chocolate bath.
Take two mysterious disappearances fifteen years apart and place them in the primeval Tasmanian forest. The result is The Kettering Incident, a brooding thriller set in the small fishing village of Kettering, an hour out of Hobart. Lovers of Twin Peaks and The X-Files will be instant fans of this genre-bending series, the first full television series produced entirely in Tasmania.
So for those of you who are new to the whole Bachelor (henceforth Bachie) franchise, the show works this way: some ‘lucky guy’, the aforementioned Bachelor, is “looking for love” and, having had some alleged ill-luck in this endeavour, is appearing on a television show to find his “perfect match” or “soul mate” – or whatever title Nicholas Sparks conjures up in his next oh-so-disgusting novel.

Last Thursday saw the release of the highly anticipated television continuation of Australian horror movie Wolf Creek on on-demand subscription service Stan.
Wolf Creek is Stan’s second original series, following 2015’s improvisation comedy No Activity, which the Sydney Morning Herald praised as the “Seinfeld of cop shows” for essentially being a show about nothing and everything at the same time. However, Wolf Creek is a far more polished production than anything else emerging out of an Australian subscription video platform. Read more …
This evening, Sky News of News Corp (yes, Murdoch’s outlet — though to those of you who care to watch it, not its mouthpiece) an exclusive Foxtel news channel aired a live debate between Bill Shorten and Malcolm Turnbull. It was moderated by News Analyst David Speers, and broadcasted from the marginal seat of Macquarie in Western Sydney.
Watching other people watch television isn’t exactly the best pitch for a television show, but Gogglebox Australia is proving to be a viewer favourite. Read more …
A girl does not want to read spoilers.
For those who thought last week’s opening episode felt a little slow or empty, “Home” is definitely a return to form for the award winning series. Read more …
