I’m planning on watching What’s Really In Our Food? and The Mentalist

Carolyn Robinson is back with the fourth season of What’s Really In Our Food? tonight on TV3 at 7.30pm. This show is fascinating, and you find out all sorts of things – most of which you’d probably rather you didn’t know, but it’s good to stay informed!

On tonight’s episode, Carolyn investigates whether burgers can provide us with key nutrients, or if they’re simply packed with fat and salt. And what exactly are they made of?

If you have Sky Movies, then you should watch the premiere of Drive, tonight at 8.30pm. Continue reading »

Great news local celebrity and reality tv viewers! Sally and Jamie’s new show The Ridges is coming to TV3 next month.

The six-part, 30 minute fly-on-the-wall series will no doubt deliver the same love/hate comments as The GC did earlier in the year.

Ridge has TV executives counting on the fact we don’t have to like her, we just have to watch her. They predict that we’ll tune in in droves.

We can’t wait!
