A picture-perfect hurricane

In 1990, I remember coming home and turning on the television to images of the missile strikes during the Gulf War.

Good to be bad?

Since the dawn of time, good and evil have been duking it out. When the drama wasn’t enough in real life, man began making up stories with heroes and villains. Guys liked breaking the rules and girls fell for the bad boy.

Return to Smurf Village

The little blue beings called Smurfs began in 1958 from the imagination of Belgian cartoonist Peyo, a.k.a. Pierre Calliford.

Invasion of the Daleks

According to Guinness World Records, Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction television show in the world.

Taking a break

I just came back from a week off. After a couple of weeks of technical difficulties and extra hours, I needed to get away from it all.

Reality fishbowl

Celebrity Apprentice fascinates me. It’s interesting to take the animal, Celebritus Americanus, out of its natural habitat and drop it into the fishbowl of reality TV. They don’t have their regular schedules or personal assistants.

Oprah finale end of an era

One of my favourite shows of the past season is ABC’s Castle – which I’m pleased to know has definitely been renewed for the fall. It’s funny, twisted and the mystery in each episode is anything but obvious.

Alphabet network's richest hour

Recently, ABC relaunched Fox’s failed reality series Secret Millionaire.
