A few weeks ago, we delved into the topic of the ratio of American shows to shows produced internationally, inclusive of my homeland Australia, and we discussed about what makes a great show, and whether country of origin plays a factor. While the debate of sorts can carry on for a while yet, with many groups of people arguing about one type of favourite show vs another, ultimately it’s up to the consumer and the avid TV watcher to know if their show is good, regardless of where it was filmed and set. Over the next few weeks, I will delves into my favourite non-American TV shows (maybe about 5 or 6) and then I will try to wrap things up in a neat and nice bow. So are you ready?

It’s time for another Worship Wednesday’s post, where we delve into a popular worship song, speaking about what it means to us.
Seeing that Michael W Smith’s The Spirit Of Christmas released this week (which is one of my favourite Christmas albums ever, by the way), and that there are a few high profile Christmas albums releasing in the near future, inclusive of 1 Girl Nation, Chris August, Everfound and Peter Furler, I thought that it would be appropriate and fitting if we talk about a worshipful Christmas song.
Below is a list of the albums that are releasing/have released this week; which albums are you thinking of listening to and purchasing? Which albums are you going to recommend to others and which would you bypass? Let us know in the comments below.

Everyone has most likely seen the recent Walt Disney feature film Frozen. If you haven’t, then people will look at you like you have three heads or one eye. Whether you love the film or hate it, this is a craze that won’t go away anytime soon, and is the most successful, and highest grossing Disney film ever. The story focuses on the concept of love, that it can rectify any problem, and that all we need to do is just let it go.

If you didn’t figure out from my top 10’s post a few weeks ago, let me spell it out for you. Once Upon a Time, a fairytale/fantasy family drama, which debuted in 2011, is one of my favourite shows on TV at the moment. And Season 4 is right around the corner (actually the premiere episode is on today, wow, time flies, doesn’t it?). I’ll be reviewing Season 4 episodes, but before I do, let me quickly recap Seasons 1-3, for those who haven’t seen the show are just want a refresher. Beware, spoilers are coming, so if you want to watch OUAT at your own pace, don’t read on.

Can you tell me a time when you were first introduced to television? I know my first time- it was Sesame Street in around 1991 or 1992. I then outgrew that show, transitioned into programs such as Saturday Disney (Channel 7 around the years of 1995 til about 1999), Round the Twist (on ABC- my family and I watched all four seasons in the early 2000’s), and Monk (I started watching the Channel 10 program in 2005 with season 3 repeats). As most of these shows I was first introduced to I watched on Australian TV, I’d like to briefly talk about the current reliability of the Australian TV guide, in light of the shows I am now currently watching on American TV, online because of review purposes, considering most of what I am in the middle of right now hasn’t come to Australia yet…
