“it’s [insert name of literally any TV show] crossed with Skins”

I did say I had quite a few lowculture articles planned for this week; actually I was going to do one more, about Ben Whishaw in Cock at the Royal Court, but since that sold out long before it opened there didn't seem much point.

Instead, starting with last Thursday, I previewed Misfits, E4's new "Heroes meets Skins" show from Merlin writer Howard Overman, starring the young man in my avatar, Spring Awakening's Iwan Rheon as one of a bunch of ASBO kids who get hit by magic!lightning and develop superpowers. Actually, I really enjoyed the first episode, it didn't take itself too seriously and was nicely shot and acted. Fingers crossed the series keeps up this standard. I toyed with a couple of titles for this one including "I Can't Believe It's Not Heroes" but since Rheon's character can turn invisible I went for I see right through you.

On Friday there was a show that needed no introduction, especially not on lowculture, but I did one anyway: The return of Beautiful People - How I got my second series.

Last night of course there was the first Doctor Who episode in ages. Oh yes, I'll have plenty to say about that once I've watched it a second time, but for now this was my preview of "The Waters of Mars:" Borrow my chapstick? Actually you can keep it.

And today's article is about a BBC4 show (because we like a bit of high culture now and then innit,) Enid, with Helena Bonham Carter as Ms Blyton. My main childhood memories of Enid Blyton's books concern The Famous Five, so I played it safe and stuck to that, and jokes about casual racism, obviously. Five go divorcing.

And that's it for now.

I like True Blood, but not as much as I expected to. Maybe it's because I only read the book a couple of months ago? Even though there's a few differences in the TV series it's still basically a fairly short novel spread out over 13 episodes, so it feels awfully slow to me.

OMG, low culture!

You are a deeply talented person, you know.

Thanks :)
I just hope my talents extend to playwrighting since that's the one that matters!
