They don’t make game shows like they did in the ’90s. Which is probably a good thing. Back then safety wasn’t a top priority and political correctness was an afterthought. Still, it was entertaining! Follow me through the spinning tunnel into a world of knee-pads, name tags and oversized teddy bears in school uniform…

Those of you who watched Dawson’s Creek, Buffy and Felicity in the late ’90s, will remember the 1999 teen alien drama Roswell with Shiri Appleby and Katherine Heigl. It’s been 19 years since it first aired and like so many other TV shows of the same era (Gilmore Girls, Charmed, Party of Five), it’s being rebooted. A pilot episode was ordered by The CW and filmed in New Mexico last month but we’ll have to wait until mid-May to find out if it’s been picked up for a full season. As a mega fan of the original series and big supporter of the reboot (currently untitled), I’ve been ingesting all Roswell-related info in anticipation of a season pick-up. Hold onto your alien antennae, here’s everything we know about the Roswell reboot so far!
One of the best things about Netflix’s Japanese TV romance Good Morning Call is all of the delicious food that they eat! Nao is a great cook and loves to make lunch and dinner for her boyfriend Uehara to make him happy – since he’s a “skinny pig”. Aside from the food, this is such a great show to binge so if you haven’t already, maybe this post will entice you (warning: mild spoilers ahead)! Get ready to call Uber Eats because these are the 15 Japanese foods you’ll be craving after watching Good Morning Call!
So you’re traveling to Disneyland (California) or Walt Disney World (Florida)? Lucky you! Disney requires a LOT of planning. There’s so much to see, do and eat that you don’t want to miss out on something amazing because you haven’t prepared. You’ve come to the right place for food recommendations. This isn’t an exhaustive list by any means but it’s some of the delicious food I enjoyed on my recent trip (end of 2017) to America.
December – it’s the month that brings the magic! It’s also the month that makes us wish work days were shorter, if only to rush home and binge watch every Christmas TV movie ever made. Sure there are the classic holiday films – Home Alone, Love Actually, Miracle on 34th Street (the Mara Wilson one of course)…in fact, just check out our 15 Movies to Get You in the Christmas Spirit! But TV Christmas movies (typically Hallmark, occasionally Lifetime and now Netflix) are on a level of their own. Words you might hear to describe these movies: lame, predictable, cliché and unwatchable. Words I might use to describe them: delightful, festive, fun and heart-warming. Whether you watch them to have a laugh or genuinely enjoy their Christmas spirit, they’re good festive season value.
To help elevate the fun, we’ve created a game of bingo for you to play while watching! You can either print off the table below or do the modern day thing and screenshot it and play on your phone. Each box contains a typical Christmas TV movie cliché (e.g. The movie stars a child star from the 90s – keep your eyes peeled for Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar!). Make yourself some hot chocolate, throw on a Christmas TV movie and see how many you can cross off!
It’s been a long five month wait but season 2 of Riverdale finally airs this week!

When you think of iconic Australian commercials, what comes to mind? “Not happy, Jan!” by Yellow Pages? It’s hard to forget the creepy Smith’s Chips Gobbledok which was a cross between a Gremlin and ALF. Mortein’s Louie the Fly was practically an Aussie mascot (until they got rid of him – RIP Louie!). How about our latest advertising gem – the Rhonda and Ketut story by AAMI? Maybe it’s the ones with the catchy jingles that stick with you. Like the “My Dad picks the fruit” song by Cottee’s Cordial, “You ought to be congratulated” by Meadow Lea, “Make those bodies sing” for Australian Bananas, “Good on ya, Mum” by Tip Top or Banana Boat. But what about Aussie ads specifically from the ’90s? Check out our list of 19 unforgettable Australian commercials from the ’90s and see how many you remember!
