Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay

I just love Gordon Ramsay. First, I love that he elicits a very strong love him or hate him reaction in people. In America, if you have only seen him on the highly sensationalized Hell's Kitchen, you might not care for him (as I initially did not). it seems like he is always angry and yelling at people for no reason. I then watched Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and the F Word (both on BBCA) and got an entire new perspective and a huge amount of respect for Mr. Ramsay. On Hell's Kitchen, you only see him yelling. Seeing him on his other shows you see that that yelling, comes from a motivation of wanting people to do their best and seeing the potential in people. You also see a man who cares greatly for his family, friends and the quality of the food he cooks. Its that passion and motivation for excellence that drives GR, and is part of why I have come to really like and respect him. He also makes amazing food.

Torchwood, which is kind of like an X-files/detective show but cooler! There is a machine that can bring someone back to life for a little bit, there are aliens there's time travel... what else could you ask for?

First let me say I was not at all familiar with the old version of this series other than I knew it was on in the 60's and had a huge fan base. You do not need to have even heard of Doctor Who prior to reading this to enjoy this new BBC iteration of the series or to understand it (if you really want to know the entire Doctor Who lore however, a quick trip to Wikipedia will bring you up to speed)! I just started watching it (here in the States they are running Season 3 on BBCA and a Season 4 is in the works). This is my absolute fav. show. Dare I say I even love it more than Buffy. This new version of Doctor Who starts out with Christopher Eccleston (he also played Claude in Season 1 of Heroes and as a tip of the hat to him playing the Doctor, you can hear him saying "Fantastic" quite a bit, which is something the Doctor is fond of saying quite often) playing the 9th version of the Doctor here in Season 1. Billie Piper plays his companion Rose Tyler. While the aliens, other worlds, time travel, etc. is awesome, it is really the relationship between the Doctor and Rose that drives the show and makes it so, as the Doctor would say, fantastic!!

David Tenant (swoon....be still my heart!) contines his run as the Doctor in Season 3 of my most favorite show of all time! Freema Agyeman is his new companion, Martha Jones (she is also a doctor, although an Earth type of doctor). For those who grew to know and love the character of Rose Tyler (played by the wonderful Bilie Piper) as the Doctor's companion it would seem she would be hard to replace. The character of Martha Jones is different than Rose, but equally as well. Freema Agyeman is a wonderful actress and does a great job portraying Martha. More aliens and time travel abound! Also, another favorite actor of mine, John Simms (Sam Tyler on Life on Mars, another brilliant must see show) plays a villian in a few episodes. Check this out and see why it is my new favorite show of all time and the best thing on tv.!!

TV show (which everone needs to watch) is awesome. It's all the things that were good about the 70's (granted there's not a lot of things, but there was some great music). I'm absolutely miffed that David Kelly is going to make an American version of this show. It's the actors who really make it and the tone and feel of 70's UK, and I'm sorry but an American version will just not give you that! Anyway, I digress, get this soundtrack, its worth the money!
