Preview – Sky1’s Mount Pleasant Starts Tonight

August 23, 2011 Leave a comment

The second show to come from Sky’s investment in original drama/comedy premieres on Sky1 this evening…

At the heart of the show is Sally Lindsay’s (Coronation Street, Phoenix Nights) Lisa, a 30-something Mancunian who’s been married to plumber Dan, played by Daniel Ryan (Skins, The Street), for ten years. The pair live on a cosy cul-de-sac in Mount Pleasant, a small suburb to the south of Manchester. And Lisa’s ever-present parents Sue (Pauline Collins, Upstairs Downstairs, Shirley Valentine) and Barry (comedy veteran Bobby Ball) are only down the road.
All relationships have their ups and downs, and though Lisa and Dan are besotted with each other
and like nothing more than a shared bubble bath, they aren’t above the odd scrap when the occasion arises. That occasion normally involves temptress neighbour Bianca (Sian Reeves, Cutting It, Emmerdale) offering Dan a slice of her fish pie…

Mount Pleasant premieres tonight at 9pm on Sky1

Preview – MTV’s Awkward

August 23, 2011 Leave a comment


As I write this, news has broken that the show has been given a second series in the US in a hailstorm of celebration. Someone described it to me as a “female Inbetweeners” which is big praise. After watching the episode I think that comment is at least somewhat justified.

I would say it’s almost like a younger Sex & The City, but whatever other show Awkward is like, I liked it. The main character is good, relatable and the content is funny. It’s a very good teen comedy.

It’s a shame this is an MTV show because I really think it deserves a bigger profile/audience, but well done to MTV. It’s good enough to be on any major network. Kudos to MTV.

Awkward premieres Thursday the 1st of August on MTV
