Glee Shippers — Wemma (Will Schuester/Emma Pilsbury), Finchel (Finn/Rachel), Klaine (Kurt/Blaine), Brittana (Brittany/Santana) — are all sweating buckets waiting for the outcome of the fourth episode of the fourth season, ominously named The Break-up.
The Small Screen
Queen lesbot of the UK and Ireland, Super Kins is scripting and taking the lead role in a new comedy Heading Out, which, according to the BBC, is about a vet who is afraid to tell her parents that she’s a lesbian.
The fall season is almost back in the states so I thought I’d take a look at a few shows I am really looking forward to seeing again. The small screen really comes good on those dark Irish evenings
Rizzoli & Isles coming out as lesbians will make a huge amount of money for about three episodes and then disappear off our screens. It shouldn’t happen but it will. Glee is the exception to every rule, people. So, which do we want? Subtexty Rizzoli & Isles for many more seasons; politically correct non-subtext for many more seasons; or lesbian love for three episodes?
Here’s a twofer, a recap of both episodes of Fair City that have aired since last time around. Mostly because there are only a few wee minutes out of the full 20 which involve the Laura and Emily storyline. And partly because the next episode is tonight, so I need to get my ass in gear. Without further ado, then!
There’s been quite the shortage of lesbians around Carrigstown ever since Yvonne and Connie.. I don’t know, fizzled away? Anyway, the drought hath ended! Enter Laura Halpin (Liana O’Cleirigh) and Emily Mahon (Eimear Morrissey). Just in time for Pride. Commence the shipping, canoning and name-merging!
A few weeks ago, my wife mentioned this new TV show she thought we’d enjoy. I have to admit that all I heard was “fairy tales and they’re in our world” and I kind of switched off. Not that I do that a lot when she speaks. Once off, honest. Ahem. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I’m in the pub and my pal tells me about this new show. He’s all excited and thinks I’d love it; it’s about fairy tale characters but it’s set in the modern world. Whoa! What the hell?
Tonight! BBC 1! 10:50pm! If you were left bereft by the six-episode abruptness (and sheer oddness) of Lip Service Part Deux, well Billie Piper will be locking lips with Kaya Scodelario. Woohoo!
I don’t mind admitting my total excitement at the imminent return of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. The season 2 finale was amazing and left a few more questions open. It’s such an atmospheric program and sucks you right in, June 5th is the date to put in your diaries.
Here we are ladies and gentlebums, the final episode in the shortest series ever on television*. Six palty episodes. You have to hand it to them, though, they certainly shoved a lot of plotlines. Will there be a season three? to be honest I don’t think so; not when series two was so short.
We qualified! I’m not sure how anyone else is after the scoring last night but janey my heart was in my mouth until they called Jedward’s name. Cartwheeling their way onto the stage and into the final they are a tonic, and I have a good feeling about Saturday!
When you get someone who has created some of the best characters on TV and ask them to go make something new, your expectations are high. It looks like “Shameless” creator Paul Abbott isn’t about to let Sky Atlantic down when his new show “Hit and Miss” takes to the air.
It is that time of the year again. Eurovison time, love it or hate it you can’t avoid it. Especially not if you live in Ireland where we are very proud of our record of winning the contest seven times. Forget Euro 2012, Eurovision 2012 is where the real action is. People often ask me why I love it so much and I find it hard to articulate why. I do love the cheesefest it is.
Hang on a minute, this is the penultimate episode? That’s just 17 months to make six episodes? What the hell is going on at the Beeb? Don’t they know how many people love this show? Plus I’m just starting to get into it. Seriously, though, have you ever heard of a season of anything on the tellybox being just six episodes long?
Now that the show’s star, Joanna Johnson, has come out publically, its time for her character to follow suit. Karen’s secret hit the small screen on May 17th as her daughter wanted to proudly introduce her boyfriend to her family
So, it’s Tuesday and I’m only recapping. Why? Well, to be honest, this is shite. Sorry but it is. I was sold The L Word in Glasgow and by gum that’s what I want!
