The nine most sensitive responses to the Eastenders rape episode
I admit to not being a fountain of good ideas when it comes to this website. Which is why the opportunity to embed a load of people's tweets about a controversial episode of Eastenders is a ruddy godsend.

Five reasons why you should watch Catfish

Five reasons why you should watch Catfish
I refuse to believe people who complain "There's nothing on TV", when we live in a world where Catfish: The TV Show exists. Based on the 2010 movie when cameras followed Nev Schulman as he tracked down the girl he was in an online relationship with, now Nev and his filmmaker buddy Max travel across the US, righting wrongs and unravelling the mysteries of online dating like a sexier Noughties version of Scooby-Doo. The upshot of Nev's story was that people lie about who they are on the internet, and TV is now all the better for it.

Five other Marvel spin-offs in which the most interesting person just left
In Marvel's Agent Carter, announced last week as a star vehicle for the quite splendid Hayley Atwell, Peggy Carter must "balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life - Steve Rogers". You've got to hand it to them: they're confident enough that we're on board with their 14 movies a year that they'll try a TV series where the most interesting person has just nipped out to the shops. Here's five more they've got in the pipeline.

Eight assumptions I'm making about 24: Live Another Day

Eight assumptions I'm making about 24: Live Another Day
I never quite managed to get along with 24. After three episodes of the first season I was just about done. Then I tried them again about a week ago. Same result: booooooring. It doesn't half move slow for something with a built-in device for urgency. So with 24: Live Another Day coming up on Sky 1 I have no choice but to base this article on a series of ill-informed assumptions. Or, you know, just write nothing at all.

Something about it being her title not her name, from what I can gather? Mainly in capital letters.

Nine people or things who might just as well be the new Doctor Who

Nine people or things who might just as well be the new Doctor Who
Craig Charles, David Harewood, Dominic Cooper, Miranda Hart: the list of people who "would definitely consider" being the 81st Doctor is endless. On the grounds that it's no less ramshackle an approach to speculating who might get the job than everyone else is taking, I decided to use Wikipedia's "Random Article" button to try and determine who'll get it.

17 pictures in which The Mentalist looks like a mentalist

17 pictures in which The Mentalist looks like a mentalist
I initially thought it was terribly politically incorrect to make a TV show about a guy who was a total mentalist. Then someone told me it wasn't about that. But this seems irrefutable evidence to the contrary.

Eleven things about Hemlock Grove

Eleven things about Hemlock Grove
While browsing Digital Spy today I noticed a feature called 'Ten things about Henry Cavill'. Not 'ten remarkable things', you'll notice. Just things. Inside I found what was essentially his Wikipedia page split into a ten-strong bullet list with exclamation marks added. So if there's no need to pretend your points have value as long as they're in a list, it stands to reason that a longer list means a better feature. Here, then, are eleven things about Hemlock Grove.

Seven other Smiths songs being turned into TV pilots
If there's one thing that connotes good writing, it's when someone comes up with the title first then shoehorns in a premise to fit it. Step forward NBC's comedy pilot, Girlfriend in a Coma.

The eight best bits from The Bible trailer
History Channel miniseries The Bible, based on the bestselling book of the same name, has just premiered in the States. It looks to me like it has some religious undertones.
