A*mazing Vidiot EC Plays Lift-Off Pick Your Face Total Recall Aussie Kids Game Shows 90s

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…

Here’s Everything We Know About the Roswell Reboot

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!

Are You Ready to Play Christmas TV Movie Bingo?

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 ActuallyMiracle 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!

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 18, When a Stranger Calls

When I found out that there would be a Betty-centric Riverdale episode titled ‘When a Stranger Calls’, I freaked out because a) I am a Betty stan through and through and b) When a Stranger Calls is one of the greatest horror movies of all times. This episode was a rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I yelled at the TV – my four standard Riverdale reactions now that I think about. Keep reading for the best bits of Chapter 18 – When a Stranger Calls.
