One Direction got the fright of their lives when a woman pretended to go into labour before interviewing them on Nickelodeon.
In what seemed like a routine second round match for world No. 2 Rafael Nadal, it turned out to be one of the biggest upsets in the history of Wimbledon.
Karl Pilkington, the man with a head that has its own gravitational pull, is set to appear in a brand new installment of An Idiot Abroad.
This is the very first “Studenty Writers Podcast”, we don’t have a real name yet, this is our working title. This is a short show where a few of the studenty writers get together and have a chat. It’s only 10mins so why not give it a listen and let Ian and John’s voices ease you to sleep (little know fact both of their voices can make angles melt like chocolate!). Tonight the lads give a brief run down on the Irish referendum that is set to take place tomorrow [...]
By now you know that Sweden won Eurovision 2012, and that Jedward finished a disappointing 19th for Ireland. But if you, unlike this reporter, actually have a life, and missed last night’s extravanganza, did you miss much? If you are as big a fan of Marty Whelan as I am, then yes! You missed loads of impatient and resigned one-liners during the voting. Otherwise? No, not really. The entrants for 2012 were high on sameness and low on crazy. Overwrought ballads, light bondage and ethnic dancing were the order of [...]
DCU shall take over Aer TV.ie tomorrow as they attempt to host a 24 Hour Live Broadcast, at 8pm tomorrow evening. All shows to be aired throughout the marathon have been made by DCU students and will include DCU’s own Apprentice, Babestation and The Late Late Show. Last year the 24-Hour Broadcast raised over €2000, but this year’s team are planning to at least double that figure, all in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Throughout the broadcast there will be various ways to donate via text and the internet. Spar on [...]
RTÉ yeserday announced that the award-winning current affairs series Prime Time Investigates had been permanently axed. This news coincides with the resignation of the former Managing Director of News and Current Affairs, Ed Mulhall. Mr Mulhall had been with RTÉ since 1979 and held the position of Managing director from 1997. The axe of the popular show follows an investigation by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) into the Prime Time Investigates programme ‘A Mission to Prey’. Issues were highlighted in relation to the programme’s objectivity and fairness in the [...]
Netflix the online movie and TV streaming service is now in the market for some 2 months. A lot of things were expected of it. Some even predicted the end of the high street video library. The truth seems to be far more prosaic. I’ve used this service from the outset. Yet at no time has the idea of canceling my video club membership crossed my mind. A common criticism of the service is that it’s content is low rent hokum with a generous lathering of pot boiler TV dramas [...]
We all have our favourite shows, films and actors. These are the ones that captivate both critics and audiences every week or every time a new film comes. They get press time, news coverage and receive acolade upon acolade. But what about those shows that we love, yet either viewer ratings are below par or the critics hate it and it never wins any awards? The same story goes for the actors. We all know those who are continually passed over for the more A-lister stars. Here is a snippet of a few [...]
Last night, I sat down for the first time and feasted my eyes upon a full hour of “Geordie Shore”, the television series that one simply cannot escape – especially when one lives in a house full 0f 20 year old women. While I was expecting to be repulsed, annoyed, disgusted, bored and generally sad, I found myself instead feeling something else. Something strange. I realised that “Geordie Shore” is amazing. A quick synopsis for those not in the know: “Geordie Shore” is essentially pure unadulterated debauchery: a gang of [...]
