We spoke about his time on the show and what it was like before entering the house, after, and how much the producers did/didn't manipulate what we saw. There's also some frank discussion about why the audience has fallen out of love with the series. Poor CHANNEL TEN - what are they to … [Read More...]

Farewell #BiggestLoserAU

Season Nine done and dusted and finally after three years of lacklustre ratings The Biggest Loser Australia - in all its variants - is no more.

Veep Season 3

Can Selina Do It?! — #Veep S03

The Veep and her team are back, and they can barely contain themselves. Season two ended with the revelation that the President wasn't going to run for re-election, opening the door for the Veep, or Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), to offer her candidacy and run for the most powerful office in the world. As usual things never run smoothly... POTUS still has to announce publicly he's not running. Also there's the issue of the other candidates that will throw their hats into … [Read More...]
