I’ve been hate-watching Everybody Loves Raymond since before hate-watching was even a thing. Now I hear that the BBC has ordered a pilot for a British remake called The Smiths. And all I can ask is, why? Oh my goodness gracious, why? More
Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t is a series that explores modern urban legends, bringing you a new tale each week.
Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted, Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures… These days, television is full of paranormal programming that purports to track ghostly phenomena, and each and every one of them swears up, down, left, and right that they’re the real deal. But in 1992, these types of shows were far from the norm. So when the BBC decided to air a 90-minute special on Halloween that claimed to be a live, on-air investigation of ongoing poltergeist activity at a house in Northolt, a neighborhood in west London, the public’s reaction was a great deal less jaded than our own would have been—especially given how the tragic events of the night unfolded. The program was called GHOSTWATCH, and it would go down in history as one of the BBC’s biggest mistakes. More
MTV is working really hard to blur the boundaries between entertainment and child porn with its new series Skins. And it looks like the cast of the original British series achieved that easily.

With the recent release of the penultimate Harry Potter (which by the way is oh so fabulous, sorting hats off to David Heyman and the HP crew), I have all things magical on my mind. I thought it only too topical to plug into the nations fascination of magic and Colin Morgan sprang to mind. More
A long time ago we excitedly told you tales of Deadset, a BBC mockumentary in which the cast of Big Brother was terrorized by unholy flesh-eaters (besides themselves), and were forced to defend the house against a zombie onslaught. Well now the show has jumped the pond to America, and while we’re excited for the week-long mini-series, we can’t help but think of how great it would be if our own reality stars were given the undead treatment.

I’m not saying that I forgive Taylor Momsen for making it trendy to look like some sort of Courtney Love/Olsen twin hybrid, I’m just saying that the XX’s “Islands” is my favorite song that I tell people about, and Eminem/Rihanna‘s … More
“Look lady, I don’t know how they do things over at the BBC, but here in West Hollywood, I’m the only star allowed to walk shamble around couture boutiques in a giant mumu. Well, myself and the Olsens.”
