The Block Sky High - Week 2 scores

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ The second reveal has all the makings of its own melodrama after a week of conflict has left the parties with a simmering and possibly temporary peace. It's just going to be a big end to a big week (let alone what the judges pontificate over)... What do you do the night before delivery when you're on the Block? Stay up all night and paint, naturally. In case you'd not been keeping up with SteamRoomGate a recap was inserted here, including all the conflict that flowed forth including RollerGate. I mean seriously - this show has more gates than a country property AND THERE'S NOT EVEN A GATE ON THE DAMN BLOCK. Trixie's had enough - their steam room is going ahead for delivery this week. Level 5 and Level 1 will go head to head. "I think they're … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Johnno, Trixie, the Twins

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ As if we'd not seen enough conflict this week, it's time for The Final Showdown (Thanks Europe). Trixie v the Twiins and someone's as mad as hell and not going to take it any more. There may even be tears. Though it does start with a Harry Potter-esque motif. Which doesn't make a lot of sense until the Block flashes red. The Twiins have started early and don't care who they wake up, even Posh who's under orders to get more sleep. Twiin 1 dashed home for a visit so Twiin 2 is stuck at the Block trying to bring it all together. Wonder Twiins activate! The creatures are stirring on Level 5 where Trixie reveals they're going to put in the steam room they've purchased but not connect it up. The recap reveals just how childish it's all become. … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Cast

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Another day, another episode of The Block: Sky High; so named for the fact that the constestants must build a secondary school among the very clouds themselves. This episode opens with a Law and Order parody, complete with music and logo. It’s actually sort of adorable. The criminal investigation continues into the episode itself, as Scott explains that Alisa/Lysandra believe that Trixie and Johnno copied their idea (by way of gossiping tradies) for a steam room. I get why you’re upset, guys, but is it really that important to have an entire room dedicated to cooking your vegetables? Alysandralisandra have banned tradesmen from their site, so I don’t know how they intend to finish the job. Oompa loompas? It’s a very serious allegation (not … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - George & Bec

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Another day, another disaster on the Block. The His & Hers bathrooms are well underway and you just know there's tension boiling. The Twiins have decided to include a steam room in one of their bathrooms and they think it's their big secret - by telling anyone who'll listen. Little do they know Trixie & Johnno have been seeded the same idea by their sparky who heard about it from the flappy lips on Level 1. It's all very sinister and covert as neither party want anyone to know what they're doing. Matt & Kim are suffering from a leak coming down from Level 3 and Posh & Becs are claiming it's not coming from them. All the to-ing and fro-ing drawns much unneeded attention from Keef. "I don't think it's gonna be a two second fix," offers the … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Johnno & Trixie

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/   Time for me to check in once more with The Block: Sky High (so named for the explosives that are strategically placed throughout the house, ready to blow the whole thing when somebody fails a challenge badly enough). It’s the morning after the judges inspected the teams’ first rooms, and Trixie is crying already because she was half a point behind the challenge winners. Look, Trixie; it’s all well and good to be emotional, but if you’re cracking already, the next few weeks might get pretty rough. This is The Block. It’s going to get real. The teams all head back to the building to check out each other’s rooms (a bedroom and an en suite per team). They begin with Bec and George’s winning entry, and everybody is down on it, even … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Neale Whittaker, Shaynna Blaze, Darren Palmer

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ It's all been building to this... the first room reveal and a chance for the teams to find out exactly what the judges thing of their intentions with their apartments. This is going to be awesomely brutal. Another day, another dollar poorly spent on the Block and with 24 hours left to deliver there's dollars all over the floor like a cheap stripper's dressing room. The Twiins are only now just catching up that working on the Block is brutal and everyone's feeling it. Trixie's got a blister, Twiin 2 has an ulcer, and Becs refuses to get out of bed. Matt & Kim are committed to their Jackson Pollock room. Keef asks if there's stencils. Oh, bless. Posh & Becs are taking educated guesses which, as they've proven already, is a VERY. BAD. IDEA. Becs … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Title Card

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ It's the run down to the wire as tonight the Blockheads experience the delivery of their first room(s). 3 days remain and they think it's all sleep-ins and clean sheets. Boy have they got a surprise coming their way... Forgetfulness, chipped teeth, twisted ankles, widended doorways (or even no doors), upset Keef, puzzled Posh - just another day on the Block. Today there's bathrooms to tile, skirtings to paint, and a peace accord to establish in Syria. The cupboard people are in and ALL FIVE systems have to be installed today BEFORE 3pm, and that's not gonna work for Matt. He's just not ready. The Twiins aren't happy either though its of their own making. It was only matter of time before they used "Elevation" by U2, and why not deliver it … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Keef, the Blockinator

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ A fresh new night with the new promo - and it looks pretty animationally cool. It also assigns colours to our teams - but tonight it's Keef's show and he's here to ensure everyone knows who's boss. Look - a tram! We must be in Melbourne (we'll get that a lot). It's week 1 so that means lots of sleeping in, complaining about how much sleep the Blockheads aren't getting, and worrying about putting your make up on. It won't last. Kim complains about living on the Block like being in jail: "bread and water and maybe the occasional cheeseburger." I don't know what prison she's referring to but to the best of my knowledge you only get the occasional cheeseburger when you're on the inside if you put out for the prison guards. Just sayin'. Jarrod's in … [Read more...]

The Block Sky High - Scott Cam & Shelly Craft

The Block Sky High - Sun 6:30pm, Mon-Thu 7pm, Ch9 http://homes.ninemsn.com.au/theblock/ Time to check in with The Block: Sky High, or as I like to call it; The Block: Jenga Edition (Or, if you’re pressed for time, Blenga). Last night, the teams were given the challenge of renovating a hotel room in a place that I am almost one hundred percent certain is haunted. So, be careful, guys. Ghosts don’t like it when you go swinging hammers around in their ghost-pads. Rebecca and George are in the penthouse apartment, worried about some exposed pipes. Alisa and Lysandra – who are twins, or possibly one person standing next to a mirror - are in the next floor down, worried about whether I will spell their names correctly. On the third floor, in the middle of this Block Sandwich (Blandwich? That doesn’t sound good) are Madi and Jarrod, … [Read more...]

#SurvivorCaramoan Finale recap (Mon 13/05/13)

Survivor Caramoan Fans v Favourites

Survivor: Caramoan – Fans v Favourites – Thu 7:30pm, GO! http://gochannel.com.au/SurvivorCaramoanFansVsFavorites FINALE R US!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone begins to traipse back to camp, fresh from stabbing Brenda neatly between the shoulder blades. What should be a happy occasion is suddenly interrupted by Erik having what eighteenth-century ladies would call a ‘turn’. He’s on the ground, head spinning, dazed and confused. It seems like it’s really not a big deal until Probst pop up out of the shadows. Forebode. The medics lay him flat and start checking him out. His pulse is too slow and the doctor explains that his body is in a state of starvation. They hook him up to an IV and start putting some life force back in him. His blood pressure is still way too long and the doctor isn’t going to risk it – it’s day 36 and Erik is officially … [Read more...]
