My Favourite Television Programmes of 2012

I am not sure I can put together just one simple Top 5 for TV programmes from this year but I will try.

5. Person of Interest

"You are being watched. The government has a secret system: a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn't act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up... we'll find you". - Season one opening voice-over by Mr. Finch

I rarely watch Channel 5 but a rare channel hop and I caught the trailer for the season premiere of Person of Interest. I thought I'd add it to my Sky+ and if it was rubbish I could delete it. It wasn't rubbish, in fact it's pretty great TV.

My Favourite Films of 2012

How can you sort the best films of this year... HOW?

Ok I will try to make some kind of Top 5.

5. The Hobbit

I still can't quite believe they have managed to break this into more than one movie but I did really enjoy it. Although my bottom is not made for sitting for so long (it's unbelievable based on its size!) but anyway!

My Favourite Songs from 2012

Another year gone, another whole bunch of songs that I have loved and hated. We won't concentrate on the latter ones, here is my list of the best from 2012;

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...



Tomorrow it's Christmas.

The Friday File #16 - Richard Armitage

I somehow missed the series 'North and South' so it wasn't really until Armitage played Guy of Gisborne in 'Robin Hood' that I first saw him. He then joined one of my favourite TV series 'Spooks' and then also 'Strike Back'. His role in 'Strike Back' was made smaller after he got 'The Hobbit' part of Thorin Oakensfield. I have since watched North and South and I am so very glad that I did ;-)

Music Monday: Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry

I've written many a time about songs that seem to follow you and this Christmas season it's 'Stop the cavalry'. I swear the song follows me in Tesco's EVERY time I go in there. I move out of one musical part of the store to one song just ending only for this one to be the next one played.

I get the tune in my head.

It's in there now.

You've got it now, haven't you?

The Friday File #15 - Gerard Butler

There is a new Gerard Butler film out early in January and apparently it's bad. Real bad. I mean come on this guy is seriously hot but his movie choices have been off. He received critical acclaim for Phantom of the Opera and more recognition for the movie 300. But not really much else... but LOOK at him.

Oh and he was born in Paisley.

Music Monday: Bruno Mars - Locked out of heaven

I absolutely love Bruno Mars and after last week's catchy tune, here's another. It does sound like 'Roxanne' from the Police and apparently that wasn't planned...

Anyway I end up singing this loudly in the car when it comes on the radio.

I sing it too loud... I really need to stop that.

The Friday File #14 - Stephen Amell

There's a chance that you will have read this week's Friday File and thought "Who?", I only found out his name last night so don't worry. Amell plays Oliver Queen in "Arrow", based on the DC Comics Green Arrow character. My current TV obsessions are a long list and are the reason that my Sky+ sits at a very uncomfortable 11% free. Eeeeeek!

Music Monday: McFly - Love Is easy

McFly make some catchy tunes, don't they?

Love is easy is another catchy tune and I love the video. They take you through the history of the band, through album covers and of course being King of the Jungle and winning the Strictly Disco ball.

The tune is stupid catchy.

"Do do do do do do"

Those boys look good in suits...
