Does The Voice have the Edge?

After nights of teasing and speculation the BBC's highly anticipated new reality The Voice starts on Saturday. It won't be news to you that the series will clash with the return of Simon Cowell's Britain's Got Talent but I think for sheer curiosity sake The Voice...

Looking up into a Gleeful Sky

It's not easy being a Gleek... mocking aside, fans now need to ensure they've got a Sky subscription as Murdoch's empire has got its claws into yet another hit show pinched from E4. We started the senior year with a focus on what could be a natural end to the show:...

The strange and wonderful world of Glee

It’s hard to believe that Mr. Schuster and his band of Gleeks have only been in our lives since January. Cynicism aside of all singing and dancing American phenomenons; it can’t be denied that Glee is a show that gets better and better each episode. Stylistically it’s...

Greatest Album Ever: The Results, MTV

Did we like it? Edith Bowman’s opening line immediately revealed the title of the programme to be a misnomer. Greatest Album Ever (since the birth of Music Television in 1981) isn’t quite as catchy, though. And surely a record needs to be have been around for a while,...

All The Small Things, BBC1

Did we like it? A deceptively caustic drama that savages the lobotomising influence of feral competition, and any subsequent fame, revealing its absurdity through a quaint choir contest in Derbyshire. However, we cannot fathom why one of the worst songs of the 21st...

Pop Goes The Band, LivingTV

Did we like it? This is Bands Reunited juxtaposed with Ten Years Younger, as 80s pop duo Dollar try and roll back the years for a reunion gig. Enlisting the help of a stylist, a personal trainer, and a plastic surgeon, they’re hoping to get somewhere near their peak....

The Brits, ITV1

Did we like it? With the revelation that most kids don’t pay for music, the record industry has adjusted its sights, and now devotes itself to satisfying the sterile imaginations of the human equivalent of whales washed up on beaches, casually scavenged by seagulls –...
