If you STILL haven’t caught this classic sit com, then I ask you… WHY? It’s been off the air for a while now and the DVD’s are cheap. It’s even on TV almost every day!

OK, perhaps you haven’t heard of it, or don’t know enough about it. Well, it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt who made the transition from child star to incredible Hollywood actor, The simply AMAZING John Lithgow, SNL’s Jane Curtain, French Stewart and MANY more in this stellar cast.

The show centers on the lives on Aliens from another planet. They come to earth to observe human life, but quickly fall in love with the place in their own unique way.

It’s a rare gem, that is fun for the kids, family and adults. Most of the time it was rib crashingly hilarious, and the rest of the time it was just good old fashioned entertainment.

Watch the trailer, and then go and get watch the show, you owe it to yourself!

I on;y discovered this show about a week ago. I’m already hooked! The show follows the daily life of Dexter, a likable blood splatter analyst, hiding a deadly secret.

If you have seen the brilliant Christian Bale film ‘American Psycho’, then this one will be for you. Then again, even if you haven’t I’m sure you will enjoy it.

The show has pretty much something for everyone, (As long as they are over 18) from crime scenes, witty comebacks, smart asses, fights, police investigations, compelling story lines and much more.

With SEVEN seasons already to its name, I think if you haven’t started watching it yet, then you better rectify that ASAP. Never have I seen a lead role in a TV show portrayed with such conviction. Michael C. Hall deserves plenty of credit, but his supporting cast are also great. I can’t see a weak link in this show.


Watch the trailer, then GO and get the 1st season!

A few years back I bought the first season of LOST on a whim. I saw it on sale and thought “What’s the worst that could happen?” Turns out, nothing! A lot of people give this show a LOT of stick. However, those people have either only seen the first few episodes and just wanted to jump on the hate wagon.

This show is so much more than people who crash land on an Island. It’s about the human emotions and desire. It’s about hope and adventure. In my opinion its the best programs of its type to be shown on TV in a very long time.

Every single episode has that big film feel to it. The characters are amazing, the actors great and the story-lines compelling.

If you are going to watch this series for the first time, go into it with an open mind. Forget what people have told you about it, good or bad. Its best you go into it with open eyes.

There are 6 utterly brilliant seasons. And yes, as with all long running shows, some episodes are not as good as some others, but every one will have you hooked.

Don’t take my word for it, watch the trailer. You’ll be glad you did
