Why I Love: House by @Kath_Robinson10

House - cast

There have been few characters on TV as enigmatic as Dr Gregory House. As quickly as people fell in love with him they started to hold him to account (isn't it always the way that the people you love are often the ones that hurt you the most)... Dear House, SLAP. That’s for treating Cuddy so poorly. SLAP. SLAP. That’s for disregarding your loyal puppy dog best friend Wilson. How could you? SLAP. SLAP. SLAP. That’s for treating your interns like mugs and turning them from law abiding prodigies to petty crims who break into patient’s homes to find out some ‘secret or lie’ that may or may not exist. AND… SLAP. That’s because you infuriate me. Now kiss me! House - I love to hate you. You’re a medical genius who saves lives that no one else can but hands out misery like lollies at a kid’s party. And … let’s face it at … [Read more...]

The 84th Academy Awards

Ten has set a precedent for premature program launch-ulation. The Biggest Loser, Young Talent Time, Homeland, and at least a couple have paid off. Tomorrow was meant to signal the first episode of their new morning news/light entertainment program Breakfast though it launched on Thursday last week to capitalise on the developments happening with the Federal Labor leadership. Did it pay off? Not necessarily in the ratings... though this is a marathon, not a sprint. MOLK PICKS Sunday Night - Sun 6:30pm, Ch7 Young Talent Time - Sun 6:30pm, Ch10 Grand Designs - Sun 7:30pm, ABC1 Border Security - Sun 7:30pm, Ch7 Modern Family - Sun 7:30pm, Ch10 The Force - Sun 8pm, Ch7 New Girl - Sun 8pm, Ch10 Homeland - Sun 8:30pm, Ch10 House (final series return) - Sun 9:45pm, Ch10 Louis Theroux's Wild Weekends (rpt) - Sun … [Read more...]

MolksTVTalk the Podcast – S02E04

Dario Russo & Sean James Taylor - Danger 5

Well here we go - the first week of ratings, and SteveMolk & Josh are back with another podcast episode to educate, confuse and horrify. Kerri-Anne resurfaces, Sunrise has a nasty case of the delays, Channel 7 finally get their Revenge, House gets cancelled two seasons too late just as it's about to start screening in Australia - there's just so much to talk about. Recorded on Valentine's Day (for all the lovers out there) because Molk had some commitments in SYD on Wednesday... but you'll hear all about that too. Oh, and Josh was REALLY sick. On this week's show: The 2012 MOLKIES! (2:50) THE BIGGEST LOSERs fall in love. (8:40) REVENGE rocks on premiere for Ch7. (12:03) Foxtel launch A&E - with added MEGATRUCKERS! (16:53) Kerri-Anne surfaces on Ch7. (20:05) Ch10's BREAKFAST gets an airdate. 22:34) That's a lot of … [Read more...]

2011 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000

This is it. The final episodes of The Renovators (a few weeks too late for some). Week 42 brings more suprises and new shows, with some other shows still banked up to air (with only 7 weeks of the ratings season left, it's getting squeezy!). Today for the first time the SuperCheapAuto Bathurst 1000 is being broadcast in Australia in HD on 7mate, though the number of ads Ch7 are airing is wearing thin on an already skeptical audience only just getting their event LIVE live to air. Seems you can't keep everyone happy all the time. CAN’T MISS Sunday Night – Sun 6:30pm, Ch7 The Renovators – Sun 6:30pm; (season final) Wed 7:30pm, Ch10 Grand Designs (season final) – Sun 7:30pm, ABC1 Wild Boys – Sun 7:30pm (rpt following Sun 10am), Ch7 Underbelly Razor - Sun 8:30pm, Ch9 (rpt Fri 8:30pm, GEM) Junior Masterchef – Sun/Mon 7:30pm, … [Read more...]

Downton Abbey

Just entering the second half of the year and Week 27 is delivering some surprises along with some same old, same old. The Block finally launches into the renovation part of the series, and after a great debut week Ch9 will be hoping that everyone keeps watching. The big loser in that race, The 7PM Project have got Hughesy coming back this week, but will it be enough? House finishes it's season this week, and the interesting final episode of On Trial airs. A good smattering of movies throughout the week too. Where are all these shows we were promised at the start of the year? CAN’T MISS Dancing With The Stars – Sun 6:30pm, Ch7 60 Minutes – Sun 7:30pm, Ch9 MasterChef Australia – Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri 7:30pm, Ch10 Downton Abbey – Sun 8:30pm, Ch7 The Mentalist – Sun 8:30pm, Ch9 The Block – Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri 7pm, … [Read more...]
