Recap – The Apprentice S13E2: “Hotel Redesign”

Okay, I say this every year but how the hell are these candidates in business? As soon as Jeff blurted out, “I don’t want to deal with the finance side,” I nearly choked on my biscuit. Imagine signing up for a reality show competition based on becoming an entrepreneur and then babble such foolishness. Of course, he was fired after that. His own fate was signed and sealed.

Recap – Star Trek: Discovery S1E4 – “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”

Blimey, these episode titles.

Anyway, we’re back. And this time I even managed to watch the episode and write the recap with a degree of urgency, so with any luck we’ll be ranked 6,347,425th in the Google search rankings and as many of you as possible will get to read exactly how I feel about “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”, aka “Which of These Letters Should Be Capitalised in the Title?” aka “It Cannot Be Safe To Keep That Thing on the Ship.”

Recap – The Apprentice S13E1: “Burgers”

It surprises me every year that I return to the couch for The Apprentice. There is something uniquely delightful watching blundering mistakes by so-called business professionals. This year I would like to share my delight and recap each week as it unfolds, with a variety of car crashes which I am sure we will savour. Warning: there will be major spoilers in this recap.

This week’s episode is titled “Burgers” and as a person residing in Manchester, I understand the weighty importance of serving up a good burger; I mean, we do seem to have a burger restaurant around every single bloody corner. The task this week traditionally started the season on a simple foot. The candidates had to sell burgers on a stall. Let’s be honest, this episode felt more embarrassing than usual.

Review – Dr Foster Season 1

Dr Foster follows the life of what starts off to be the perfect family. We’re introduced to Dr Gemma Foster (Suranne Jones) and Mr. Simon Foster (Bertie Carvel) showing their love for each other in the rawest sense. We are then introduced to their 14-year-old son Tom Foster (Tom Taylor) which altogether paints “the perfect family”.

Throughout the first episode, we follow Gemma Foster (Suranne Jones) as she first begins to suspect her husband of cheating. To begin with, she seems to have what can only be described as the perfect life. The series then quickly propels us into watching Dr Foster’s psychological warfare as she not only finds out her husband is having an affair but comes to shocking revelations about her husband’s secret life. On top of this, her career and personal life unravels just as she does.
