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!
This week we discover that Riverdale has so many new and interesting townsfolk. We meet Creepy Farmer and a beret-wearing wheelchair-bound German drug lord (and it totally makes sense because this is Riverdale). Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 20 – Tales from the Darkside.
It’s been a loooong week but we finally made it! For Bughead shippers, in particular, it felt like 536 years since the last episode. We are 6 episodes in and so far we have learned that the Riverdale writers want to put Bughead shippers in an early grave, Jingle Jangle is here to stay and that everyone will dress with absolutely no regard to what the current season may or may not be. Here’s our recap of the best bits of Chapter 19 – Death Proof.
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.
This episode of Riverdale is brought to you by a cypher (I learnt a new word this week, kids), high school boys making shitty decisions and the reinforcement of librarian stereotypes (Tsk! Tsk!).Here’s our recap of the best bits of Chapter 17 – The Town That Dreaded Sundown.
I love historical dramas. Any time I see some sort of period costume I immediately am intrigued. What time period is it set? Where is it set? Is it a true story? Does it have a hunky love interest? Ok that last one isn’t very specific to the genre, but it’s still an important question.
There’s a mountain of historical dramas on Netflix Australia so I’ve put together a list of some of the ones I’ve been watching recently as well as some of the ones that are next on my to watch list.
Welcome to another week of Riverdale where, thankfully, *SPOILER ALERT*, no one dies. I swear the Riverdale writers are trying to send fans to an early grave with all of this drama. This week we FINALLY get to see more Kevin Keller and are taken into the belly of the beast that is Southside High (news flash – the students are not as friendly as we were originally led to believe). Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 16 – The Watcher in the Woods.
This week we say goodbye to some characters (whose names you may or may not know), hello to Reggie 2.0 and welcome back to the man, the myth, the legend – Skeet Ulrich. Hold on tight because Season 2 of Riverdale is set to be a bumpy ride! Keep reading for our recap of the best bits of Chapter 15: Nighthawks.
By now someone in your social circle has probably mentioned Terrace House. Or you’ve heard about it via social media, a podcast you’ve listened to, or seen it pop up on your Netflix suggestions. But you’re probably still not entirely sure what it is, why you should watch it, or what the real appeal is. Here’s ten reasons to watch that will clear up the mystery that is Terrace House.
Can anyone remember what their life was like P.R. (pre-Riverdale)? I sure can’t. Those were dark days. It feels like we’ve been waiting years for Riverdale to grace our screens again (it’s actually only been 154 days, but who is counting?); thankfully the return of Season 2 of Riverdale did not disappoint. Dream sequences, old time-y hospital outfits, shower-cuddles and fog! Good lord was there fog. Check out our recap of the best bits of Chapter 14: A Kiss Before Dying.
