Knight Rider was a popular American television series that ran between September 26th, 1982 and August 8th, 1986. It was broadcast on the NBC television network (It is now on TV3, Sundays at 1pm-2pm) and starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a kind of modern-day “knight” who drove an advanced smart car with artificial intelligence. Conceived and produced by Glen A. Larson, the show was an instant hit and inspired a subgenre of high-tech crimefighter series. “I want[ed] to do The Lone Ranger with a car,” Larson said in The Last Great Ride. “Kind of a sci-fi thing, with the soul of a western.”

A few weeks ago we stumbled upon a television gem while tuning in to TV2′s late-night lineup. Wayne Anderson: Singer Of Songs is perhaps the best comedy ever to come out of New Zealand. In the style of Kath & Kim and The Comeback, the show is a mocumentary that at first has you questioning whether or not the characters are for real. No canned laughter needed, you just find yourself in hysterics at the simple Wayne Anderson trying to make it to the big time – performing on TV One’s Good Morning. My favourite parts are when Wayne meets up with his friends at his various favourite takeaway stores – that Raewyn is a real looker!

This is one show that you need to check out for yourselves, so I suggest you do so!

This is so funny! It was on MadTV!

This is so funny! It was a skit on MadTV.

I absolutely adore Grey’s Anatomy. I love that you end up falling in love with all the characters – warts and all: they’re human and have flaws but they’re just so lovable. When I watch a lot of other shows, I find that there’s very few characters that I find that I really care about. With Grey’s, even McDreamy’s ex-wife I find myself liking aspects of her character.

The scene where Izzy pleads with Denny to live is breath-taking. I bawled my eyes out so badly in the last two episodes.

I really hope season 3 doesn’t lose the magic. I’m starting to like George’s new girlfriend (oops forgot her name) and I hope we get to see more of her. It’s great to see a new character break the little (almost incestuous) clique and breathe new life into the character dynamics.

Also, one of the other things I love about Grey’s is the awesome music on the show. I’ve ended up buying a lot of music thanks to the show – music that isn’t overplayed on radio (well, not when it first airs, anyways), indie music that’s more interesting that the tired songs on commercial radio.

Speaking of which, the second album from the show is out, yay! I’ve bought the first one and I adore that – it’s like the Garden State CD – one of those albums that you never tire of.

I would go as far as to say that Grey’s is now in my top 3 favourite shows of all time.

The third season of Battlestar Galactica starts in the US this week and the question I want answered is how long will New Zealand have to wait until it screens here. And then, what night of the week will it be on?

There has been some great promotion and publicity online including the 10 webisodes created as a bit of a bridge between season two and season three which has left me hanging out for another suspense filled season.
