YAY! Thank God, that another commercially hyped marketer’s dream is over. Yes that’s right, I’m not a fan of Valentines Day, Bah Humbug!
Now lets get down to some Good TV.
It’s Back!!! For all you foodies out there MasterChef, has returned to our screens for another series of twenty hopeful’s battling it out to be crowned Master Chef 2011.There is a saying that comes to mind though, If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!
Not sure if I am bowled over with the new X factor stylie format going on but at least the host’s continue to keep it real.
I’ve got to admit the lady at the beginning with the whistle brings to mind John Anderson; the Gladiators referee from back in the day… “Contestants on my first whistle”
MasterChef is on BBC1 Wednesdays @ 21:00 & Thursdays @ 19:00
Beauty and The Beast: the Ugly Face of Prejudice
As soon as I heard the title of this revealing series from Channel 4, I was quite interested to see what it was all about. Looks are everything. Right?
I mean the first time we meet someone, before even speaking to them, we’ve made a judgment based on how they look, and their facial expression and what they are wearing. Physical appearance matter’s; it’s all very well singing from the roof tops that beauty is skin deep but is it really, in this self obsessed world?
Well and truly appearance shouldn’t matter.
More than half a million people in Britain live with a facial disfigurement and fail to be represented fairly in the public eye. One uplifting point about the programme is that no matter the prejudice and shallow comments, the real beauties of this story continue to get on with their lives despite what society thinks.
