TV TURN-OFF OF THE WEEK: Cheryl Cole dresses as a maid to promote Downton Abbey

on in Entertainment with No Comments »

We saw this photo and wondered what on earth Russell Brand, Nicole Kidman, Bruce Willis, Boris Johnson and Cheryl Cole were doing dressed in period garb. They are all in fact wax models that went on display at Madame Tussauds in London to mark the return of Downton Abbey. But they couldn’t distract us from the fact that the directors had made a few slip ups in filming the show…

TV TURN-OFF OF THE WEEK: A trip to ‘Shagaluf’ giving Geordies everywhere a bad name

on in Entertainment with No Comments »

We’ve done our best to ignore the cast of Geordie Shore, hoping they’d eventually disappear into the chasm of ex-BB housemates and Z-list wannabes. But now they’re jetting off to Magaluf for a summer special of the show that almost makes us want to flick over to Snooki and co (we said almost)…

This week we’re turning off Top Gear. A fairly obvious target for Global Cool you might think, and you’d be right, but this has nothing to do with the fact that our least favourite wearer of stone wash jeans and his mates regularly get themselves moist with middle-aged excitement about gas guzzling cars…
