TV Tunes: Alias

There’s no better way to find new music then through TV shows. Come to think of it, that’s where most of the music on my iPod comes from. Not only are you introduced to amazing new artists, but every time you hear the song you are immediately transported to that scene when it was playing.

I’m in awe of the people who choose these songs…do they literally know every single song in the world? Do they spend their days just listening to music? If so how do I get this job?

So for this inaugural post, what better show to start with than the show that first opened my eyes to TV tunes: Alias.

The Definitive Jane Austen Collection

I love a good Jane Austen movie, and these days we are spoilt for choice. Discussions with my other Jane-ite friends get so confusing with all the remakes…Do you mean the 1995 version? Or the 2005 version?’
I often see box sets for sale but there’s never been a complete collection of adaptations that are my favourite. So that got me thinking… Which ones would I choose to make my own personal definitive Jane Austen Collection? Which ones do I see as the ‘definitive version’ of each novel?

Well, Comic Con season is all but over for another season. We were lucky enough to make it to Oz Comic Con (read our posts here and here), and scoured the internet for news from the big kahuna San Diego Comic Con. SDCC is definitely at the top of our bucket list!

 

So with that in mind, we got to thinking: if we could put together our own dream panel of five celebrities, who would they be?

Gilmore Girls, Scott Patterson and Oz Comic Con

Gilmore Girls

Ready for a Gilmore Girls marathon!

When asked about my favourite tv show, the answer is unequivocally the same every time: Gilmore Girls. A Saturday night staple during my high school years, my mum, sister and I would settle down at 7.30 and have ‘girl time’. Feet tucked under us on the couch, dessert in hand (I mean, I challenge you, I really do, to watch this show without eating!), ready to laugh at Lorelai and Rory’s antics and wax lyrical about how Luke was “a bit of all right”.
