Finale week just ended this past week, with around 70% or 75% of our beloved and well respected network TV shows broadcasting their finale episodes (either as a season or a series finale). While some endings were neat, tidy and seemingly perfect in case of a cancellation (take About a Boy’s season finale as a prime example), others had cliffhanger ones, in anticipation of a new season (some shows sadly didn’t see it to next season, from shows like The Tomorrow People, Community and Revolution, to Suburgatory, Growing Up Fisher, Trophy Wife and Almost Human).
Here’s the next installment of “Sunday News Roundups”, this time from the 12th to the 18th May. Enjoy reading the scoop on the latest news!

First of all, let me say this outright that I’m not a very big TV watcher. Though in the past my slate of shows for the summer season and fall season have slowly risen over the past few years, it hasn’t gotten to the point where I can say that I watch every single show that a network orders to series. Because the fact of the matter is that I have not watched every single show on the planet, and there are probably bigger TV fans than myself.
One of my favourite music videos of this past few years was the LEGO music video of “SMS Shine” by the David Crowder*Band. Though lyrically simple, the visuals were nothing short of amazing and remarkable as the video was created by using a LITE-BRITE® branded toy board, as well as 700,000 pegs. It’s no mean feat to do what David Crowder and his friends did all by themselves, however what eventuated is truly a masterpiece. “SMS Shine” won an award at the Dove Awards in 2011, which was expected and satisfying as well. Fast forward 4 years later and Sidewalk Prophets have semi-used this technique to create the music video for “Keep Making Me”.
If there’s a band that has possibly the most energy within the CCM/pop/rock music industry currently, it’ll have to be Royal Tailor.
