• Not at all ordinary

    If anyone ever asks me my favourite movie my response is simple. It’s been a favourite for many many many years. In reality I probably need to rethink the answer, but my old fave is amazing enough – in my belief – to have stood up to the test of time.

    Ordinary People  was released in 1980 and directed by Robert Redford. It stars Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland, Timothy Hutton and Judd Hirsch. 

  • 5 TV shows I wish I could watch

    I’m a good girl. Back when my school friends dared each other to steal a 50c bracelet at the local show I steered clear.

    If I’m really honest I think it’s only the ‘getting in trouble’ I worry about. As for the naughtiness… well… #meh.

    Which is a long-winded way of explaining why I won’t illegally download TV series or movies. It’s really not the ethics or morality of it all – just my fear of getting caught.

  • Top 10 female TV sleuths. According to me

    I was ranting speaking to someone recently about female detectives and how they’re so often still a ‘sidekick’ to their male counterpart (Bones, Castle, The Mentalist, CSI x 15 come to mind). However… I’ve since reminded myself of a few kick-ass females who’ve taken a lead role over the years and decided to share my top 10 female detectives of all time!

  • My first obsession: Steve and Jaime

    You may have noticed that, because I’ve got such hardy self-esteem, I have no problems confessing to the occasional foible or idiosyncrasy. (Then again, there’s also my leaning towards self-deprecation…!)

    Either way, as a result, I have no problems admitting to addictions. I’ve confessed to binge reading, binge tweeting, and the fact I am a television addict. Indeed the latter goes WAAAAY back.  It’s not just the likes of Buffy and The West Wing which have tickled my fancy. No sirreee… I was addicted way back in the day of the Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men, Chips, Starsky and Hutch and Charlie’s Angels – to name just a few of my childhood faves.
