Geeks vs Loneliness: a note on oversharing

“How are you?”That’s a question that seems everyday to most, and like the scariest thing in the world to others. I’ve never been much of an sharer. As a geeky girl who grew up in a small town, it wasn’t something that came naturally when I was a child and bottling things up became even more of a habit once I’d entered adult life.

Clique episode 4 review

Well that just got dark. After three weeks of relatively demure scandal and intrigue, episode four of Clique has dimmed the lights, upped the stakes and made a lot of the grimy subtext of Solasta and its treatment of interns into shocking, graphic context.

Clique episode 3 review

After two weeks of being on the outside looking in, Holly’s now a part of the titular clique and in full investigative mode. But fighting from within the belly of a beast you’d actually quite like to be eaten by is difficult, and she’s going to have to get past the seduction and glamour of Solasta and her new life if she’s to get to the truth.

Clique episode 2 review

After the shock ending of the previous episode, Holly’s understandably a bit curious about what the interns and, by association Georgia, are really getting up to. Making tea and getting photocopies doesn’t usually end with you jumping off a hospital roof after slitting your wrists.

The life of a professional dancer is not an enviable one. Full of passion and athleticism and success in a field where so many fall short, countless narrative films, documentaries and real-world accounts have also shown the career to be uniquely damaging to the body and the mind.

Clique episode 1 review

British television has historically not been great at delivering the kind of sleek, aspirational and/or scandalous young adult television that the US has cornered the market on since the 90s. Where the US has Gossip Girl and 90210, the UK has Hollyoaks and Made In Chelsea.

The Vampire Diaries’ return to its thematic roots

Since The Vampire Diaries premiered back in September 2009, a lot have things have changed. TV has become unrecognisable. The CW has evolved far past its identity as a haven for teen romance and guilty pleasure soap opera to a haven for superheroes and critically acclaimed soap opera, and the vampire craze faded out along with True Blood and The Twilight Saga.

Who will win the driverless cars race?

We all know this year is going to be an interesting one for tech. While there will be new and exciting innovations, as well as a likely explosion in virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence (AI) use cases, one thing that has been waiting for its moment in the sun for a long time is the autonomous car.

Why Girl Meets World Was an Experiment Worth Watching

Growing up is hard; it’s frustrating and it’s confusing as hell. Growing up female is all of that turned up to eleven, but thankfully there are places we can go during that time that make understanding the mess of adolescence a little bit easier. For me and millions of others in the 90s and 00s, that place was television, where I could watch smart, witty teenagers navigate the same struggles (or fight metaphorical monsters).
