"Exsqueeze me, baking powder?" Mike Myer's is turning 50, really? Sorry Mike, but I was convinced you were a touch older. To set things right between us, here is a tribute to you, from me. In his half-century on Earth, Mike, or Mister Mike Myers Sir (to us little guys), has been enormously successful in his many comedy roles. In 1989, he gained real success on Saturday Night Live, playing various characters including the über cool German host of 'Sprockets', Dieter and my favourite rocker, Wayne Campbell - whose life as a slacker and small-time TV presenter was explored a… read more »

NCIS Season 10 Finale

Just a short rant from me. Here goes: season 10 of NCIS comes to a close tonight with Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) yet to renew her contract for season 11, ensuring that it will be a frightening episode, regardless of the plot. For those of you a little slow on the uptake, this means that Tony and Ziva, could appear on screen together for the very last time in tonight's episode, "Damned If You Do".

What ever happened to The Simpsons?

The Simpsons

Yes, I know that they're still running and are now well into their 24th season, but sadly they've been hopelessly lame for a long time. As I was growing up, I would always drop whatever I was doing to rush to the TV at 6pm (EST) for the beginning of The Simpsons. My younger brother was never far behind and although my parents thought it was "a stupid show", I would always catch them laughing at the jokes that I didn't quite understand (it was a great show and they knew it!).

Happy Mother's day to all those yummy mummies out there! I am sure that for most of you, your mother has been a great role model that has always been on hand in times of need. Unfortunately not all of us are that lucky, and it seems that celebrity offspring often draw the short straw in choosing a suitable matriarch. To those of you that despair at your mother's attempts at being cool, think yourselves lucky. At least they get the basics right! Dina Lohan Mother of troubled star Lindsay Lohan, Dina makes no secret of living off her daughter's succeses. Not content with being Lindsay's manager, she also featured… read more »
