This comment was posted on the latest Shortland Street clue this morning.

I just noticed in clue number 4 that the publish time/date in the Breaking News article says 10:43am Saturday 14th of December and the article says (and I quote) “A massive explosion rocked a Northland beach community at 9:30pm today… the message TK’s sent to Sarah from his phone was at 10:03pm on the 12th (clue number 27)….but wait, there’s more!

Clue Number 6, the Evidence/Property Custody Receipt says that the time and date the items were recovered were 5:45am on the 12th (the way the time is written is in the 24 hour clock)…before the explosion

Clue 21, the witness and report statement was issued on the 11th of December, (apparently following the explosion at the Warner holiday home) which means the day that the “witness” was talked to. This form was “filed” on the 13th

Clue 22, the reindeer ears, were recovered from the site on the 12th of December at 00:45am (again the 24 hour clock, which means they were recovered before the explosion even happened) Continue reading »

Another day, another txt message…


Happy Saturday!  Have you been bingeing on any shows that you got behind on in 2013 during the holiday season wasteland of prime-time repeats?

Anything else you want to raise about TV in New Zealand, this is the place to do it.

girls4It’s been a great week for Lena Dunham. First there was news that Vogue USA would feature the unconventional beauty on their cover and devote a secyion of the magazine to her hit show Girls. Now, with just three days to go before the start of Girls’ third season, HBO has made official its plans to produce a fourth season.

A network spokesperson announced at the top of its Television Critics Association winter press tour panel that it has already renewed Girls for another round. It will film in New York later this year, with a 2015 premiere planned. Continue reading »

NZ On Air announced at the end of last year that it was funding some web series from its Digital Media Fund.  $100,000 of it was going towards the third season of Flat3, which stars JJ Fong from the most recent season of Go Girls.

Here is the episode one (of the first season):

Earlier today we asked TVNZ if they would be screening the Grammy Awards due to the likelihood of Lorde having to make an acceptance speech.  TVNZ confirmed that they would be screening the awards but

12:23PM this copy is embargoed until next Tuesday.

So would appreciate it if you could keep the details  under your hat until then.

I asked for an exemption due to the increasing hype and questions being asked.  I was told:

1:18PM Sorry Regan

I cannot give any exemption as it wouldn’t be fair to other media who are respecting the embargo. But it’s all yours to go with from Tuesday.

I then asked if it was going to be streamed live at all.  I heard no reply.

At 2:45PM I posted some details about the up coming ceremony, including details provided to me from Sky about their red carpet coverage, respecting the TVNZ’s embargo.  Half an hour later, this appears on Stuff: Continue reading »
