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.

This review contains major spoilers.

Everyone loves a good zombie flick. Unless you don’t. And if you don’t, 28 Days Later is one of the ones which makes this a sad state of affairs. Also, this isn’t really a zombie flick – but I’m leaving it within the parameters of one.

Okay. Like with most zombie-style flicks, the introductory plot is pretty basic and to-the-point. Thankfully, though, 28 Days Later has so much more to offer than the average post-apocalyptic picture-show. So, in a nutshell: Animal activists break into a laboratory in order to free some chimpanzees held in captivity. Ignoring the pleas of a present scientist who strongly advises against the idea due to said chimpanzees being infected with a super-contagious Rage Virus, one of the activists lets a chimp free. Said chimp, clearly in an abnormal state, mindlessly attacks one of the activists and infects them with the rage virus, spreading to and initiating a reaction in the activist almost instantly. And from here, things just go from bad to worse – but I guess that’s what you get for monkeying around (and before anyone says it: yes, I know there are significant distinctions between chimps and monkeys. Let me pun in peace.)

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.
