TV and movies

The holidays are over and we must admit we are feeling pretty heartbroken about it. Why do they have to go by so quickly?

It feels like Christmas Eve was here in an instant and now we’re back in the office.

It’s been a long and draining day and it feels weird to be wearing something other than pyjamas, but the weekend is only one day away.

 

There’s no doubt that everyone will be feeling a little miserable, and most definitely shattered, after the first day back at work so do yourself a favour and curl up on the sofa for the evening with the remainders of your selection box.

Like us, you’ve probably grown tired of Christmas movies and binge-watched the new series of You in the space of two days but one of our favourite movies is on TV tonight.

Brooklyn will air on RTÉ One today and we honestly couldn’t think of a better movie to watch after being at work all day.

Starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters, Brooklyn follows Eilis, a young Irish girl who moves to New York in the 1950s, as she starts a new chapter of her life far away from home.

Brooklyn airs on RTÉ One at 21.35 tonight.

All of our favourite midwives will be back for series nine, including Nurse Trixie, Nurse Phyllis Crane and Nurse Valerie Dyer.

The latest midwife to join the ladies of Nonnatus House, Lucille Anderson will also be back for another series. Leonie Elliot warmed our hearts as the sweet natured nurse.

The team teased the new series: “Here's a first look at one of the latest photographs to emerge from our new series of Call the Midwife, which comes hot on the heels of our Christmas Special!”

Speaking about the upcoming series, the team shared: “After an eventful Christmas in 1964, our intrepid team leap right into Poplar in 1965 – a world in rapid motion, but one in which the most important human needs never change.”

Happy Halloween, witches!

Gone are the days when we rambled around our neighbourhood, dressed in a black bin bag with bags full of sweets, the smell of fireworks in air and mini witches and wizards on the hunt for more toffee apples.

Today we just hand out overpriced chocolate (that we’d rather eat ourselves) as trick or treaters grin at us in way fancier costumes.

The list of Halloween movies we adore gets longer and longer every year. We just can’t get enough of the frightening films and neither can Ireland.

A new study by Halloween FM has revealed the nation’s favourite Halloween movie and it is a classic.

26 years after it was first released, Hocus Pocus is still Ireland’s favourite Halloween movie – that’s according to a new survey carried out by Halloween FM.

Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) say that Hocus Pocus is their favourite movie, followed by Halloween (21 percent) and Nightmare on Elm Street (13 percent). Thriller by Michael Jackson takes first place (30 percent) as the favourite Halloween song with just under with 1962 classic The Monster Mash taking second place at 17 percent.

Decorations for Halloween are growing in popularity year-on-year, and this year is no exception, with a whopping 65 percent of people saying they will decorate their houses “from top to bottom” for Halloween, but full-on American-inspired ghouls and spiderweb adorning the front of the house doesn’t appeal to everyone, with 29 percent of people say that something small to decorate the house or porch will suffice, such as a carved pumpkin. Just 6 percent said they won’t bother with any decorations at all.

U.S President Donald Trump emerges as the figure of many nightmares, with 41 percent saying that he is the worst celebrity they would want to be stuck in a haunted house with. Katie Hopkins comes second, with 29 percent running for cover from the out-spoken English media personality. Hilariously, just 7 percent of respondents object to Freddy Krueger.

HalloweenFM.ie, Ireland’s first ever Halloween radio station, is on air now playing wickedly good music and providing the perfect soundtrack to all your Halloween celebrations.

Listeners are enjoying a wide range of music from a mix of upbeat Halloween-inspired hits to a collection of spooky songs and classics. There are a host of familiar voices presenting on the station, ensuring you get in the mood for Halloween 2019.

Fans of Derry Girls, we’ve got some bad news for you. The Irish comedy was due to be released on Netflix on May 8, but it looks like fans will have to wait longer than expected.

A spokesperson confirmed that the show won’t be joining the streaming service until later in the summer.

There’s been a Derry Girls-shaped hole in our hearts since the last episode of series two aired in April so we are pretty gutted about this news.

The second instalment of the hilarious Irish series went by in the blink of an eye but we adored every minute.

The second series had many iconic moments including Gerry making sambos at the funeral and the gangs frantic journey to Belfast for the Take That concert.

We’ll just have to wait patiently for Netflix to add the hilarious Irish show and re-watch episodes of Friends for the time being.
