Ordinarily, I’m not a big fan of sketch comedy shows as most episodes are more often than not like a roller coaster with up and down sketches. Not a bad thing but more my opinion as I realize not every sketch, whether it be from Saturday Night Live, Little Britain or even Monty Python’s Flying Circus, can knock it […]

Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot added to BBC One’s Christmas line-up

At this time every year, I lament my decision to not pack a bag and head to London for Christmas. Aside from the fact that it would be a magical time of year to walk down Regent Street spending hours inside Hamley’s Toy Store before heading over to Oxford Street for a stroll through Selfridges, […]
