So it seems that we've finally been thrown out of the dreary, grey drizzle of winter and suddenly chucked head-first into the blistering heat of summer; like leaving a car park in Stoke and being greeted by the uncomfortably stuffy gust of hot air that's blown in your face upon traipsing unto the breach of

Whilst it's somewhat of a cliché to say that we're currently in a "golden-age of TV", it would be foolish not to rejoice in the fact that our only gripe with TV is the shear consistency of its high quality. The fact that it's become a cliché is a blessing. Let's be honest, being bored of the

Summer used to be a TV dead time. That time of year that we’re all supposed to be playing outside, and as such nothing good was ever on TV. Autumn came, tele was great again, but until the leaves started falling, it was almost pointless tuning in unless you wanted to spend your evening watching

Roughly two/three years ago, I found that my TV-viewing habits had reached an all-time low.

Perhaps one of the saddest ironies of being a television writer is that amidst reviewing the constant stream of new releases, it’s nigh on impossible to actually sit down and watch something that you really want to. As such, this week’s What We’re Watching is a rag-tag collection of Netflix-based guilty pleasures, squeezed in as and

This week Sam Hawxwell tells us what's caught her eyes on the small screen. Modern Family Since watching Parks and Recreation I've completely fallen in love with documentary style TV shows, and Modern Family is the latest in my collection of 'must watch'. I've only recently began watching the show and within the first few

I know that right now you're probably thinking that I've gone mad, that I'm slowly drowning in the mainstream but lets be honest, who doesn't have a guilty pleasure when it comes to TV shows? Mine have always been American Reality shows, whether it's Pawn Stars or Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, I love the
