Thursday Treat #23: Eurovision 2013

Eurovision is here again! Genuinely my favourite weekend of the entire year, even more then my birthday or Christmas. And with Eurovision comes my annual post about the hot men competing this year’s competition.

US Autumn Preview 2013: ABC

This year, almost my entire anticipation for upfronts has been built around one show, and one show only. I never watch American shows from the outset, the chance they’ll get cancelled right when I’m getting into them is too high, but I’m totally watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from day one.

US Autumn Preview 2013: Fox

After yesterdays NBC debacle, I wasn’t really looking forward to doing the rest of my American previews (apart from the one involving Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., obviously) but from the following, it looks like yesterday was a bit of a blip, and whilst there are still no obvious mega-hits, there is also less utterly irredeemable crap.

US Autumn Preview 2013: NBC

I’M BACK BITCHES. I haven’t blogged in a forever, mainly due to my life being a big ol’ mess, partially because I just couldn’t be bothered. But it’s upfronts season, which means all the trailers for the new shows are being released, which is as good a reason as any to end my blogging lethargy.

Films and That: The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey

Alright, before I get cracking with this review it should be said: I’m not a huge fan of Lord of the Rings. I’ve never been able to read the books (despite multiple attempts) and I’ve only ever been able to sit through each film once. It’s not that I think they’re bad, they’re just not my cup of tea. But I read The Hobbit when I was little and loved it (God, I’m really fickle when I stop to think about it) so I approached this with some hope.

Insert Joke About Mayans Here

The results! Loads of you voted in my awards last week, and a big thank you to all who did. Those who didn’t, you’re are an insult to democracy. HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY LIVING IN NORTH KOREA.

Anyway, there are a few surprises along the way, and despite several close calls, not one person, singer or TV show retained their title from last year.

Television and That Awards 2012

I haven’t blogged in ages. I know, I’m the laziest person in the entire world, but I’m hoping my second annual awards will revive my love of forcing my opinions about shit on to people. Particularly with Oscar season rapidly approaching.

She’s not the one that we want

Ah, the righteous anger of the British public. You know what could have saved James or Ella from the bottom two? IF YOU’D ACTUALLY VOTED FOR THEM. I can guarantee that all of the people whining on Twitter or Facebook or Digital Spy or wherever haven’t voted for the X Factor in years, if at all, so you can’t get too upset when the tone deaf shut ins all vote Christopher through.

The Odds Were Never In Their Favour

Ok, first off, quick shout out to Strictly this weekend, which I think we can all agree is vastly superior when Claudia Winkleman is allowed to get involved, and the BBC really need to retire Bruce/sack Tess/WHATEVER GET HER ON EVERY SATURDAY.

Bye Kye

I am almost out of patience with this year’s X Factor, to be honest. Anyone who could have been vaguely interesting (MK1, Jade, Lucy, Melanie) have gone (and not before most of them were ruined by their mentors) and now we’re stuck with all the most boring ones. If Rylan had gone this week, I’d have been tempted to stop watching entirely. IT’S JUST SO DULL.
