“Offspring” Season 3: Love Connection by Matilda Dixon-Smith

June 19, 2012


Australia doesn’t generally do romantic comedies. I don’t know how this affects everyone else but for me, a self-confessed romance addict, it is a great source of vexation. Thank goodness for Debra Oswald, is all I’m saying. Offspring (Wednesdays, 8:30 pm, Channel Ten), a dramedy about a thirty-something obstetrician and her family, is halfway through […]

May 30, 2012


SYD2030 could easily have been pretentious, over-dramatised and predictably cliché but it isn’t.

January 11, 2011

January 3, 2011


I love a barely-concealed Australian accent. You can’t fool me Sharni Vinson of Home and Away fame, you PRETENDER. You are not “from New York but grew up in London”! You are from SUMMER BAY and when you went to Summer Bay High you wore too much fake tan. So apparently “dance battles” are a […]
