The Apprentice: season 10, episode 11 recap: "Taking it to the Next Corporate Level"

The Apprentice: season 10, episode 11 recap: "Taking it to the Next Corporate Level"
I have heard that the Google recruitment process is made up of eight different interviews, in one of which the candidate is lead into an empty room and someone leaps out from behind a curtain, to gauge how they deal with stress. Faced with this, I think I would strike out and kill the person from behind the curtain with a blow to the oesophagus, and then presumably Google would immediately make me CEO, or something.

Yup, it's that part of The Apprentice when people nervously rethink their LinkedIn profile and wonder whether their employer is ever going to double-check that 100m swimming badge that they never actually got. It's interview week!

Review: The Missing: season one

The Missing: season one
You could look at The Missing two ways, I suppose. Either it was ultimately about what happened to the kid or about what his disappearance did to his parents. The latter was more interesting to me but the finale tried a bit too hard to satisfy on both counts, letting them cancel each other out in the end. (Spoilers.)

The Apprentice: season 10, episode 10 recap: "A Trifling Matter"
So far we've said goodbye to Dapper Laughs, The Sad-Eyed Woman, Fabulous Stephen, Lauren The Bratz Doll, Pamela (nope, me neither), The Sockless Wanker and finally, last week Fat Daddy Felipe got the chop and it was like seeing a pug being put to sleep.

Still left in the competition we have Sanjay whose name baffles me, Sarah Millican's younger sister, Rocket Surgeon Mark, Danyewl (how?), Solomon Blue Suit, Bianca and her million different shades of pink lipstick, and Roisin who I always forget is around. There are still more people left in The Apprentice than have auditioned for The X Factor over the past 10 years. Is our licence fee paying for all those taxis that ferry them around?

Good job everyone tweeted #BroadchurchReturns

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who tweeted with the hashtag #BroadchurchReturns yesterday to unlock this new trailer for season two. If you hadn't, ITV probably wouldn't have bothered releasing it.

The Apprentice: season 10, episode 9 recap: "The Bone Collectors"
Obviously I don't watch The Apprentice, because it is among the litany of modern cultural images intended to discourage individual thought, divert our notions of aspiration towards dreams of meaningless celebrity, and make us dumb, compliant and less likely to rise up and overthrow the shadowy conservative plutocracy that owns the media. But I've recapped last night's episode anyway for funzies.

Remember when Wednesdays were fun? When you could do as you wanted and not be a slave to the corporate machine? I miss those days.

Netflix tap into key 13th-century history buff demographic with Marco Polo
I don't know about you, but I know a lot about Marco Polo, including the fact that he was called Marco Polo, and also what his name was, and a little bit about what people mainly addressed him as when they spoke to him. Bring it on, Netflix!

What Dapper Laughs didn't realise: on TV he was playing by new rules

What Dapper Laughs didn't realise: on TV he was playing by new rules
Probably the easiest way to turn yourself into an online pariah or to bait hate-clickers right now is to say you feel sorry for Dapper Laughs, so it's a good job I don't. Fifteen minutes of fame is as much as his act merited. But I did get the sense, watching him being skewered by Emily Maitliss on Newsnight this week, that he hadn't quite appreciated that there's a difference between being an internet star and a TV personality, and that the two arenas have different rules.

Just when I thought it was on the brink, The Apprentice pulls itself from the wreckage of last week's Coach Trip disaster and delivers another doozy of an episode. I may just push back my trip to Dignitas for another week.
