A Post About Titanic, The So-So Miniseries Everyone Hated (Except Me)

It's the Titanic! But why is it so tiny? It was huuuuuuge in that James Cameron movie!

I just rewatched Titanic, the miniseries that aired worldwide on April 14 and 15 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Written by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, the four-part series offers a new take on the event from its many predecessors. Fictional and historical characters from every early twentieth century social class are depicted in a series of interweaving stories.

Skins Rewind: Season 1, Episode 1 – The Gang’s All Here

I’m bored. What a perfect excuse for me to rewatch Series 1 through 4 of Skins. Again. (You know how I love my Skins.) First up, Series 1, Episode 1 – Tony.

In the very first episode of the series (the episode the US version would do a severe disservice to), we got our first glimpse at the original Skins gang  – Tony, Sid, Michelle, Cassie, Chris, Jal, Maxxie and Anwar.

The First Generation - Look how pretty they all are! (Ick, Sketch!)

Let’s get into it.

Midweek Break with Adele

Happy Wednesday! To celebrate the week being almost over, here is a glimpse at what is on my mind today: Adele.

The British-singer’s second album 21 releases in the U.S. next Tuesday. I cannot be more excited. The first single, “Rolling in the Deep,” has been on heavy rotation on my iPod since I first heard it two months ago.

What caught my attention today was Adele performance of “Natural Woman” for VH1’s Unplugged. Prepare to be amazed.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Oh I how love her. The girl can sing and she puts so many other pop stars to shame.

VH1 Unplugged: Adele premieres online March 3, at 7 p.m. I cannot wait. Are you excited for Adele’s upcoming album, that is if you haven’t already downloaded it?

Skins (UK) Recap: The Frightened, Little Virgin

In five seasons of Skins, there has never been a bitch quite like Mini. She’s the kind of bully who wants to control everyone around her and just laughs when other people (Grace) stand up to her. She hides behind perfection. Deep down Mini is incredibly insecure and she’s a sad, sad character. I found it generally hard to sympathize with her but I did walk away intrigued by how this week’s events will effect the rest of the season.

Let’s get into it.

Skins (UK) recap: Your Skins Guide to Everything Metal

Rich Hardbeck (Alexander Arnold) is a character who speaks to me. He is strikingly similar to my friends from high school and there haven’t been many, if any at all, like him on other teen shows. Here are the basics about metal Rich: he listens to music, goes to gigs, and hangs out with his best mate Alo. And he doesn’t compromise. Ever.
