I’m planning on watching Unforgettable and To Build Or Not To Build

Poppy Montgomery stars in TV One’s new drama tonight at 8.30pm, Unforgettable. It’s about a detective with a medical condition that means she can’t forget the details of anything that’s ever happened in her life…except the day of her sister’s murder.

This show was originally cancelled by its American network, but it received a reprieve a few days ago, and 13 more episodes were ordered. It looks like it could be quite a good show but I’m not sure it will replace the void left by the excellent Criminal Minds in the Monday 8.30pm slot. Continue reading »

I’m planning on watching Family Guy and Forgetting Sarah Marshall

TV3 has a couple of good movies on tonight. The Simpsons Movie is on at 7.30pm and is good for Sunday night viewing, because you can just relax and enjoy it, without having to concentrate too hard!

Following that, at 9.15pm, is Forgetting Sarah Marshall. This movie is very funny – it made me laugh out loud several times. It stars Jason Segel, Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. Not a bad cast. Here’s the trailer.

For those of you who laugh when someone falls over. You know who you are.

The Oceania Football Confederation is considering launching a new free-to-air TV channel on Freeview.

The OFC, which is backed by the wealth of world football body Fifa, has already initiated talks with free-to-air television provider Freeview, at least 15 national sports organisations and Crown entity Sport New Zealand.

It is understood the Oceania plan is for 24-hour broadcasting, including live events, built around football but also encompassing other sports – many of which struggle to meet the financial demands of subscription satellite provider Sky TV. Continue reading »
