One of the last true rock stars, Gene Simmons’ reputation precedes him.

Co-founder, bass player and vocalist of KISS, Simmons is known as much for his womanising and chauvinistic ways as he is for The Demon, his blood and fire-spitting onstage persona. He’s also the relentless salesman behind the band’s 45 years of extraordinary merchandising – the KISS brand has been plastered on everything from condoms to coffins, earning hundreds of millions of dollars.

Television Musings Throughout The Ages – Full House

Full House (from a teenager’s POV)

Full House is a great TV show for anyone especially families. After Michelle (baby), DJ (10), and Stephanie’s (5) mother dies, Jesse (their uncle), and Danny’s (father) best friend Joey live with them to help Danny raise the 3 girls. Throughout the show, there a many morals taught which is good for younger audiences, although it may be more bothersome to older audiences. Michelle is played by both the Olsen twins and is a humorous and cute character ever since the start if the show. Stephanie is also quite funny and has a perky personality. She was a very curious character and tended to be the “goody too shoes” at the beginning of the show, although she later found herself to be confused about her social life. DJ was the most responsible of the 3, although she often got mad at her father for the restrictions he gave her, and his interest in her life. Overall, Full House is a very watchable show (directed towards families and children) as it is funny, family loving, and promotes wholesome family values.

Television Musings Throughout The Ages – Introduction

When thinking about how to launch this new section of my site, I had to decide whether to do an overload of television comments at once or segment them. In the end I went with segmenting them.

So every fortnight a different television show will be discussed… it will be identified who is making the comments, whether the person is in their teens, thirties or older in age. Those in their thirties will not only express what it is like watching the show now, but may include if their opinion has changed from when the television show originally aired.

Each fortnight the perspective may change, so some weeks only the person in their thirties will review the show, while other weeks, multiple perspectives will be posted. In the case of the latter, look for the different perspectives to be posted throughout the week and not all at the beginning of the week.

A big thing about this section is commenting, so feel free to raise your thoughts about the television shows in question and whether or not your opinion has changed over the years about them.

So as they say, here goes nothing!

 

Wanted – Series Two Preview (contains minor spoilers)

Australia’s Most Wanted goes international.

Last year, the first series of Wanted was not only the Number One Australian Drama for the Seven Network it was also the Number One Australian Drama across all networks. So no surprise a second series was commissioned of the show.

The first series ended with Lola (Rebecca Gibney) and Chelsea (Geraldine Hakewill) finally getting some respite after being chased from New South Wales to Queensland. That was until Lola received a phone call to say the hunters had taken her son. So cue the start of the second series.

Without giving away major spoilers, I have been lucky to watch the first half of the new series and like the first, it sees Lola and Chelsea on the run whilst trying to also save Lola’s son. Except this time they’ve gone abroad to Bangkok and New Zealand.

Expect the action and drama of the first series, mixed in with a dry sense of humour, which is largely due to the fantastic chemistry of Gibney and Hakewill.

Will we see a Series Three? Time will tell!
