UNCOOL: Food & Drink

February 26, 2013 by


Food & Drink is back! Is it COOL? Not so much. The original programme, which stopped running in 2002 after twenty long years, was a massive success back in the day. Everyone watched it, even me, and I was only in my smooth-skinned ‘teens. My idea of food and drink back then was a Strawberry […]

COOL: Game Of Thrones (& other nerdy books)

May 9, 2012 by


Check it – fantasy/sci-fi is suddenly COOL. Why? Oh I dunno, maybe cos’ of some TV powerhouse of a programme …Game of Thrones? I can’t think of one person not watching it, I honestly cannot, m’Lord.

HOMELAND is like a deep saucepan of spag-bol left on the hob for eternity (well, 12 weeks). For the love of beef and tomato, you cannot stop going back for more. And every time – it just gets better! Here’s why the EIC team now have no life. Not that they did anyway. 1. Nakedness […]

Playing it Straight UPDATE: Danny to WIN!!!!

February 21, 2012 by


So I was 50% right. Jordan is straight. But Ben is gay. And what a gay! In my defence if I had seen yesterday’s episode I would have NEVER claimed he was straight. Ben mincing about in his waiter’s apron was the absolute campest thing ever in the history of mankind. His twin brother, Sam, […]
