Castle Back With A Bang

September 21, 2011


So I was looking through here the other day and I realised that the last review I wrote for ABC’s clever little crime series Castle was way back when Season 1 was showing at ‘Stupid O’Clock in the morning’ over here.   I must admit, having caught up on the previous three series and loving […]

HD, Blu Ray, 3D, 4D, Double D, when will it end?

July 6, 2011


Ok so the very last one there is quite obviously the odd one out. Then again, with all the other ‘D-developments’ it might not be too long until you spot the last one on your TV screen quite easily as well. Sitting down to watch the matches on Sunday, my mother had the start of […]
