America’s Next Top Model
Tyra and the gang are back for cycle 19 (!) of everybody’s favourite model competition. Yes, America’s Next Top Model is back in full effect, and with it comes 30 of the USA’s hottest college students fiercely battling it out for the ultimate model crown.
Joining Tyra on the judging panel this year is publicist Kelly Cutrone, eye candy extraordinaire Rob Evans and celeb stylist Johnny Wujek whose CV credentials include Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj. This exciting line-up is bound to equal an entertaining watch.
This year’s top prize includes a contract with NY Model Management, a spread in the illustrious Nylon magazine, a Smashbox Cosmetics contract and a $100,000 cash prize. Witness tears, tantrums and joy this spring in what is probably the best reality show of all time. Best foot forward ladies!
Crime dramas are big in the game right now. After Breaking Bad ended its 5 season reign as the ‘must watch’ series last year it paved the way for a string of shiny, new programmes to rush forth and pinch the top spot.
Enter Fargo, a dark crime-comedy drama centred on small town loser Lester Nygaard. Unhappy with his dead-end job and bossy wife, everything changes for Lester when a mysterious stranger named Lorne Malvo arrives in Minnesota. We don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say that things are about to get very, very weird for poor old Lester.
Directed by the Coen brothers and featuring an all-star cast list including Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit) and Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa), if you only watch one series this year make it Fargo.
Orange is the New Black
Piper Chapman is in a bit of a pickle- this is the take home message from the first episode of Orange is the New Black.
This laugh out loud comedy-drama follows Piper Chapman, an ex-criminal living amongst New York’s upper middle class. Having moved on from her wayward stint as an international drug smuggler, Piper is plucked from her quiet, happy life and sentenced to serve 15 months for the crimes she committed over a decade ago.
There’s nothing like a fall from grace story to make you appreciate what you have and with twists and turns at every corner, you’ll be hooked by the plot.
