THE X FACTOR 2012: OUR FINAL REVIEW AND VERDICT

The X Factor Live on ITV1, Fountain Studios, London, Britain - 1st December 2012.

Saturday nights simply won’t be the same without Dermot O’ Leary’s dramatic and shamazing opening number! Alas it couldn’t go on forever and so, X Factor 2012 has come to an end. This year’s fashion crown has to go to Nicole Scherzinger (no surprises there) but a special nod must be given to Louis Walsh who has never presented himself better! You couldn’t have ended up with three … [Read more...]

THE X FACTOR UK: OUR SEMI-FINAL REVIEW AND VERDICT

The X Factor Live on ITV1, Fountain Studios, London, Britain - 1st December 2012.

Hey week 9! Semi-finals means that we can soon reclaim our Saturday nights from the evil clutches of X Factor fever! Another thing bringing on a fever…the fashion choices of this series! If it’s not Louis’ velvet suits with a chic polo neck (and his now infamous onesie) it’s Nicole Scherzinger escaping the fashion police week on week, whilst Tulisa gets thrown in the slammer (if only … [Read more...]

THE X FACTOR UK: OUR WEEKLY REVIEW AND VERDICT

X factor 2012 judges

Nothing, I stress, NOTHING in this series of the X Factor will eclipse Dermot O’Leary’s MC Hammer dance! Yet the judges decided to give it a go by rivalling the presenter for most shocking moment in two very unusual frocks. I liked both dresses yet Nicole’s quirky, revealing number just pipped Tulisa’s over the top ensemble to the post. Week seven was quite literally the most shocking week … [Read more...]

THE X FACTOR 2012: OUR WEEKLY REVIEW AND VERDICT

X factor 2012 judges

Week five kicked off with a number ones theme, the best yet for song choices and even better, it was the week Tulisa finally won me over in the fashion stakes! Her sophisticated, sparkly number on Saturday night trounced Nicole’s dated peplum. Normality was restored once again on Sunday night’s results show when Nicole proved to men all over the world that they really do wish their girlfriend … [Read more...]

DALLAS ON TV3: SEASON 1, EPISODE 9 REVIEW AND SYNOPSIS

Dallas Main

The end is nigh – and we are still no closer to finding out what the hell is going on than we were in episode one, but the plot is definitely thickening. Although John Ross got out of jail by legitimate means in the end it didn’t happen before Sue Ellen had bribed the medical examiner to tamper with the evidence against him and in a soap that kind of information never remains a secret. … [Read more...]

DALLAS ON TV3: SEASON 1, EPISODE 8, REVIEW AND SYNOPSIS

Dallas Main

We’re nearing the end of the season and no one could say that the tension isn’t mounting with John Ross definitely deep in the doo doo. It’s bad enough facing a life sentence for a murder that he didn’t commit but of course the real culprit Vincente wants to ensure that the truth never gets out and so had his men do a number on the over-privileged Ewing heir. John Ross may act the tough … [Read more...]
