    TV Feature | Kirsty | 10th September 2010

  • Watch This: Him & Her

    TV News | Kirsty | 6th September 2010

    One day, I'll be getting previews of these shows so I can advise you on what to watch based on more than gut feeling and hope. And read this fast, Him & Her starts on BBC Three in about an hour.

  • TV Trails: Hawaii 5-Oh no you di-uhn't...

    TV Video | Kirsty | 30th August 2010

    Aloha! Does the world need another procedural cop show with an elite, no-holds-barred taskforce, each member hotter than the last, whose quips are as polished as their 9mms?

    Umm... yes?
